Great service at the hotel. It was my wife's birthday and we were welcomed with champagne and a card for my wife. Staff are there to make sure you are comfortable and your needs are taken care of. I would recommend the Sofitel. BUT: What the hotel can improve on is the cost of their drinks and breakfast. £20 for a cocktail is too much given the competition in the area. I can go to a nice restaurant and have the same drink for £10 . We went to a highly recommended Italian and spent £180 for 4 people. Their cocktails were about £11. The hotel lost my business because they are overpriced and it is the west end. Likewise £32 for a full English breakfast is again far too much given the choice around I went for a 5 minute walk from the hotel and had a full English for £12 in an upmarket restaurant (not a cafe). They need to reconsider the pricing of the food and drinks. That way they will see more clients eat in.
