Enter a world of luxury

Taking its cue from the nearby Wellington Botanic Garden, Sofitel Wellington has an elegant botanical theme that mixes with the hotel’s signature French influences to create a one-of-a-kind luxurious experience. The garden fit-out continues upstairs in your beautifully appointed room with garden or city views. If you’ve got some work to get done while you’re here upgrade to a Superior or Luxury room with a work desk and personal espresso machine.

Whatever room you choose, you’ll sleep soundly on Sofitel’s famous MyBed. All rooms have an LCD television and BOSE sound system with bluetooth connectivity and the luxurious bathrooms feature rainshowers and French amenities.

Dine in French-inspired style

Start your stay with a well-made gin and tonic at The Green Room made with your choice of 18 different gins, including that of local Martinborough distillery Lighthouse. Settle into a sumptuous velvet armchair by the cosy fireplace and soak up the chic surrounds and the stunning Renaissance still life-style photographs of cut flowers that adorn the walls.

And for dinner, head downstairs to Jardin Grill, an upmarket but relaxed restaurant with a beautiful fit-out. Dine indoors amid the glamour or if it’s a mild night, sit outside around the fire pit in the courtyard. Jardin Grill’s menu is shaped around a core philosophy of fresh produce, quality ingredients, and a passion for food and honesty.


On your doorstep

Wake up and hit the in-house gym or take a walk or run through the surprisingly beautiful historic Bolton Street Cemetery and into the Wellington Botanic Garden, which has stunning views over the city. Follow the Sculpture Trail and discover some of the stunning contemporary sculpture that has been placed around the gardens including a work by Henry Moore.

Later, it’s an easy stroll to explore Wellington historic Thorndon Precinct including Parliament, Katherine Mansfield House & Garden and Old St Paul’s (reopening in 2020). Lambton Quay and its top-quality shopping experiences are within easy reach, as is the Wellington Train Station - perfect for a Wairarapa daytrip of vineyard hopping.
