Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour Hotel Review


Sofitel Viaduct Harbour is a true 5 star hotel. Luxurious rooms, fine dining, a spa and lounge/cocktail bar in a sought after destination.


The location is a 10/10. It is on a wharf in the Viaduct Harbour. It’s a pleasant stroll around the Viaduct to either the bars and restaurants of either Viaduct Harbour or Wynyard Quarter.

Restaurants & Bars

Sofitels Lava restaurant is a 10/10. It’s a mix of French cooking techniques with the finest New Zealand produce. Consistently excellent reviews over a long period of time. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Sabrage The Bar is open from 3pm daily, offering Champagne of course, as well as signature cocktails, small plates, and a selection of NZ and French wines and beers.

21 Cafe the Viaduct offers less formal dining from 7am to 2pm daily.

Accommodation Standard

The standard of accommodation offered at Sofitel hotel is a 10/10. Built around a marina courtyard all rooms have an ambience about them which combined with the high standard of fitout and service makes this a true luxury experience.


  • It’s hard to find anything negative with the Sofitel except perhaps at some point you’ll have to go home.
