Mr Jeremy Samuels

Legendary Stories Design signature Our Unique Story Legendary Stories

"Each Sofitel is a unique blend of the French art de vivre & local refinement. With a luxuriant design that invokes the panache of Paris & warm hospitality inherent to any Queenstown stay, the hotel continues to create moments of 'pure plaisir' every day.

"The yellow and gold coloring interwoven throughout the design is inspired by the Kowhai flower, native to New Zealand with the gold paying homage to the rich gold mining heritage of the region.

Left Bank Café celebrates a rustic French bistro menu combined with New Zealand flavours; country at heart with a sophisticated flourish. The experience at Left Bank is one of dining in a sidewalk cafe in Paris yet being in the very heart of Queenstown.

A classic Steinway piano stands proudly in the lobby of the hotel offering a hint of old-world nostalgia. At 150 years old, the unique antique provides a refined centre piece on arrival at the hotel.
