Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.

Both North and South Islands are drier on the east coast, rather than on the west, where mountain ranges act as a trap for the moisture-rich winds from the Tasman Sea. It is also worth remembering that it is usually a few degrees cooler on the South Island than the North Island and as New Zealand has a maritime climate, the weather can change rapidly.

Description

With spacious promenades that lead you to the bustling restaurant and shopping districts nearby, Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour celebrates its location in the heart of Auckland on the waterfront.

The Sofitel is wonderfully located in the centre of this vibrant city with many of the city's attractions on its doorstep. Styled in a sleek, modern fashion, The Sofitel represents cosmopolitan urban chic and its bars, restaurants and rooms are all testimony to this, from the dramatic water-filled lobby to the elegant waterside restaurant.

With an eye for detail, all of the luxury guest rooms and suites offer space to relax and revitalise within the chic contemporary surroundings, which include local influences such as the Maori art that adorns all the walls. Rooms are spacious, ask for a Harbour View room to make the most of your time in the city.

Sofitel Auckland has one formal dining option at Lava Dining and one more casual option at 21 Viaduct Cafe; whichever one you chose, they both offer wonderful views and dishes to match. However, there are many more options nearby if you would like to explore the city further.

Spend your day exploring this wonderful city and its surrounding areas, take a walk along the west coast beaches and then return to the hotel in time to rejuvenate at the So SPA featuring an indoor pool, sauna and Jacuzzi.

A stay at Sofitel allows you to experience life on the waterfront in comfort and style.

Sofitel Auckland offers a great base to explore Auckland from. It is conveniently located and is easily reached from the airport making it the perfect place to relax after a long flight. The beds and rooms are extremely comfortable and the hotel staff are more than happy to assist you with anything you need.

Victoria Hogg (Staff)

The Sofitel Auckland is in a wonderful location, which has been regenerated over the years, and is now a super luxe part of town. Whilst it is a larger hotel, the service is still good, and it is a great base to explore the city. As it has been at the height of the luxury hotel offering in Auckland for quite some time, it is a bit of a hub for outside guests to meet people for either breakfast or lunch, so make sure you get down in good time in the morning to ensure you can get a window table over looking all the boats in the harbour!
