                            I stay in a lot of 5- star hotels and was surprised with the limitations of this hotel-nice to be greeted by candles in foyer of a winter evening.

                            Dusty room shelves, bed was sloping and needed replacing or mattress turning. Stay in a lot of 5- star hotels and was surprised with the limitations of this hotel- no pool, awkward to access gym with limited hours, breakfast not geared to the 30% of Australians who have special dietary requirements....The pretentious french greetings were ridiculous despite my own fluent french!

                            Major fault was the mattress was much too soft and consequently uncomfortable for sleeping on. The pillows were also too soft, although I understand there was an available selection. The water pressure in the shower was also reasonably poor. Unfortunately the basic fundamentals for a comfortable, let alone luxury, stay were just not in place.

                            We stayed in the luxury room with Club Sofitel access and it lived up to every expectation. The food and beverages served in the Club lounge were superb, and if you haven't slept on a sofitle mybed, then you are missing out. Best night sleep I have had in ages. Loved every minute, and walking distance to circular quay and to the Opera House to which we saw a concert. 10 out of 10 in our eyes. We will be back

                            Comfortable bed and quality crisp white bed coverings. Nice touches such as fluffy bathrobes, a few current affairs and travel magazines available to read in the room, complimentary toothbrushes and paste and a couple of small bottles of evian water. Noted hairdryer of good size. Excellent standard of breakfast in the club lounge. We enjoyed having the club lounge access although it was quite busy for a Monday night.

                            Mini bar area dusty - coffee machine not working (two staff members looked at it and still no-one fixed it) - Shower pressure terrible - room classed as 'luxury' but should have been the basic standard for a five star Sofitel hotel - only one pair of slippers - stain on chair- we were locked out of our room for approx 30mins prior to check-out due to receptionist initially cancelling our access and then the door lock battery not working. Was ok as felt we had a good rate via Booked.net although we would have been a bit disappointed if we had paid the full advertised rack rate - we were quite relieved we only stayed for the one night. We advised the receptionist on check-out of the above issues and she thanked us for our feedback.

                            The room smelt musty, old.

                            No swimming pool? Size of the room was too small!

                            The rooms were quite small but more than enough for a couple on a weekend away. The Reception was lovely and you could not fault the staff who were always friendly and incredibly helpful.

                            Very friendly staff and good arrangement offered with the club room benefits.

                            I was expecting a separate shower compartment and jacuzzi in the bathroom.

                            The staff were great

                            We had a very old room which was very stuffy and the heater/air con fan made loud terrible noise. Had two single beds instead of a king double for us.

                            The rooms were comfortable and the location was close to other activities / events / public transport / easy exit from the city via the Harbour bridge.

                            The lifts were very slow, we were on the 14th Floor

                            - Location only.

                            - Service level of personel - Not following up requests / or too late - Overpriced for what you get
