Sofitel Sydney Wentworth Disney Family Fun Package
We knew we were in for a very special stay at the Sofitel Sydney when the girls were presented with beautiful silk red roses at check-in! Our magical Disney hotel stay had begun…
The Sofitel Sydney Wentworth is a five-star hotel located right in the centre of the Sydney CBD. Heritage-Listed, this deluxe hotel is offering some very special family packages right now!
“Be Our Guest!”
From the moment you enter the Sofitel Sydney hotel lobby, you can’t help but notice that the hotel has been transformed into an elegant Disney wonderland.
A decorative, beautifully set tea-table complete with romantic roses, fine china and gold embellishment, features in the centre of the lobby – a reminder that the Sydney Sofitel is currently featuring yet another Disney treat for families – the Beauty and the Beast High Tea.
Next to the reception desk, a mystical red rose housed in a glass dome – just like the one in the Beauty and the Beast movie – takes pride of place. The children were drawn to it like moths to a flame.
A beautiful Belle ball gown dress replica can be found on display in one corner of the lobby, and Belle’s Reading Corner, complete with comfy arm-chairs, dress-ups and story books in another.
The Sofitel Wentworth Sydney has really gone all-out with its amazing Beauty and the Beast theme – and it’s just fabulous.
The Disney Family Fun Package
More delights awaited us in our luxurious Disney Family Fun Package room – an accommodation package inspired by the classic Beauty and the Beast tale. This was a fairy tale family getaway indeed.
The girls were excited to discover gorgeous pink cup cakes, topped with red sugar-roses. Beauty and the Beast story books and colouring book gifts were laid out on one of the tables. More surprises were to come – the most enchanting Bluetooth speaker-come-night-light was part of the room decoration – here is a video to show it to you!
You can connect to the speaker with your smart phone via Bluetooth, or just play the built-in Beauty and the Beast theme music. (This high-tech Disney marvel was available for purchase from the front desk for $249).
The extra fun of the Disney-Sofitel family package is a real delight for any little Disney princess or prince – and even us big Disney fans!
Our Sofitel Sydney Wentworth Superior hotel room
Take a walk around our Superior hotel room by watching the video below
Our room itself was beautifully decadent. The twin double beds were plush and comfortable, and the furniture was modern and elegant. There was a large flat-screen TV, a desk and a lounge situated by the window.
The view from the 9th floor window was a sky-scraper city-scape leading down to the hotel roof-top gardens. Even though you are staying in the Sydney CBD, the rooms are well sound-proofed – we couldn’t hear any street noise at all.
Tea and coffee items were supplied in a fold-away cabinet, and a mini bar-stocked fridge was located beneath it. A large cupboard offered hanging space for clothes, and contained luxury bathrobes, a safe and an iron.
The Superior Room ensuite bathroom
The bathroom ensuite was perfect for our needs. Ultra-modern and clean with a good shower, bath and plenty of vanity space.
There were fluffy towels, a hairdryer and complimentary luxury toiletries provided.
Belle’s Reading Corner
We had been so charmed by Belle’s reading corner (the historic Wentworth library) when we first arrived that we decided to head back downstairs and spend some time there.
The girls enjoyed getting into the Beauty and the Beast spirit by dressing up in the supplied Disney Belle dresses and reading the Beauty and the Beast story books there.
Belles Reading Corner is also a great place for parents to relax with a tea or coffee – you can order café items via an elaborate antique telephone on one of the tables there – perfect!
Eventually we headed back up to our room where we all had a very sound sleep (beautifully comfortable hotel beds – bliss!) until we had to be up at 5am for an early spot on the Today Show (watch it here). After the show, we headed straight back to the hotel for breakfast.
The staff at the Sofitel really are a cut above. From the warm welcome from hotel reception to the breakfast room staff, we were so well looked after by polite, caring and attentive staff – we wanted for nothing our entire stay. The children were even given a gorgeous teddy-bear each by the breakfast manager as a cheer-me-up when one of the girls took a tumble on the way in to breakfast – they were very thoughtful and kind.
Breakfast in the Garden Court Restaurant
The Garden Court Restaurant was a very pleasant place to eat Breakfast. Staff welcomed and seated us straight away, and before I knew it I had been furnished with a hot cup of barista coffee.
We were all well-provided for with a great range of breakfast food choices. Cereals (including Cocoa Pops for the kids), juices, fruit, cheese, yoghurt and a hot buffet – complete with Chef! (Don’t miss the honeycomb honey collector too!)
The outdoor courtyard gardens
Immediately outside of the breakfast room we found access to the courtyard rooftop gardens. This was such a unique feature of this historic hotel. Geometrically laid-out, we had been able to see it from our room, and now the gardens served as a place for the children to explore while I got to finish my coffee and catch-up on some news.
After we had all re-charged and relaxed at breakfast, we were able to return to our room to unwind for half an hour, thanks to requesting a late check-out at 12pm – again, Sofitel staff couldn’t be more facilitating.
The Sofitel Disney Family Fun Package had been a wonderful experience for the whole family. What a magical Disney stay we had had with Sofitel Sydney!
