This hotel was very average for me. yes the location is beautiful and the rooms are spacious......... however the customer service is very poor, i had to tell check in the benefits i get by being a platinum le accor member (even though they had a digital frame on the counter showing you the benefits of signing up to le accor, maybe they should look at it themselves)
I had to ask what my room package included (breakfast, internet etc) instead of being told when checking in.
called up front desk to book a taxi to go to train station to go back to hong kong. they said no problem. I went to check out and ask again if that taxi knows that i need to go to train station, they said no problem. i went to taxi and he ask where you going...RIGHT.... taxi driver and bell ball doesn't understand English... had to go get manager to translate for me..... i wouldn't recommend if you only speak English.

Reasonable room rate, clean rooms but showers could have been cleaned more often. Wifi was spotty at best. But close to bar street (3 minute cab ride) and has decent restaurant on site. It has a golf course with lights so you can play at night, quite cool.

The hotel lives up to the Sofitel tradition of fine properties but is probably a day past its best. There are signs of wear on the room furnishings, in some cases these signs are just a little more visible than we might expect of Sofitel. Setting the bar high (as Sofitel does) is always a tough master and this unfortunately invites scrutiny. Don't get me wrong, this is a wonderful hotel, mystically set in wonderful gardens and designed around resort like architecture. The staff are what you would expect of Accor's best, absolutely first class. The room was spacious, beautifully comfortable without being OTT, the outlook great. The only real downside is that the allure of the hotel in terms of its location, means that dining options are limited to what is on site. The restaurant is again good, but things are quite heavily loaded. Great for a get away, but there are probably better choices for business.

Room Tip: Elsewhere if you are in town for business, anywhere in this great hotel if you are relaxing

We appreciate your objective comments in your last stay with us at the Sofitel Dongguan Golf resort. Thank you for highlighting that we live up to the Sofitel tradition of fine properties, with our Meditarranean-styled architecture, mystically set in wonderful gardens in the midst of a 36-hole golf course. Although it has aged 10 years, we have been constantly maintaining the hotel, with emphasis on high standard of cleanliness, and refreshing outlook. The good news is that the hotel will be renovated soon, which may be bad news for those who love the old nostalgia. Thank you for mentioning that the staff "are what you would expect of Accor's best, absolutely first class". At Sofitel, we have been trained to serve our guests from our hearts which we termed "Cousu main" in French, and we will definitely share your positve view with our staff, which will motivate them further to serve our guests. On your opinion on the location, as isolated as it is, we provide free shuttle services between our sister hotel, the Sofitel Dongguan Royal Lagoon, which is just 10 minutes away, where it has another 5 signature-restaurants to enjoy, an active Jazz Bar with live foreign band performance (a favourite haunt for the fun-loving guests), professionally-trained spa services, and a host of sports activities, besides golf, including bike-riding, boat-pedaling, yoga and TaiChi classes. Furthermore, for those who are more adventerous, we offer free shuttle service for our guests to the famous Dongguan Bar street at regular hours at night. Despite being a golf resort, we have many business guests who has an agreement with us to shuttle them to their factories in the morning, as they love not only the golf, but also the isolation of peace and serenity, and a choice of the hustle and bustle of a town centre just 15 minutes away or a high-end hotel with 5-signature restaurants 10 minutes away.
