It would have been more bearable it it hadn’t been so expensive for what we had. The restaurant had an event so we couldn’t use it or the bar, their valets were not friendly at all. The older staff were not very friendly, however the younger staff were very bubbly.

After a poor Air B&B experience, we landed at the Sophia. From the start, we noticed the hospitality and individual attention. Logan was amazing and basically rescued our vacation. We left impressed with the entire staff, the location and the hotel.

Brian on the check in desk welcomed us like Royalty he was very thorough in explaining things and was happy to answer any questions. Showed us to our room but we opted to upgrade to a suite which gave us more space. Everything in the hotel was in perfect working order.Brian and Derek were a wonderful double act exuding that old fashioned magic and so knowledgeable too. All the staff at the hotel had something special to offer. This hotel is in a perfect spot for lots if restaurants a few short minutes walk away, transport readily available. Would very happily stay here again.

Only worth it if you get an offer price. Hotel is clean and central, staff are excellent. Would be an awesome hotel if refitted for the full price. Hotel does not have a full time restaurant and cannot offer breakfast. Excellent cafe across the road.
