“Excellent Conference Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I attended a 3 day conference at the Sofitel and stayed there. It is an excellent venue for a conference and its central Broadbeach location and the adjacent shopping centre and restaurants were great.

Stayed September 2013, traveled on business

My husband and I had a few days away a few years ago and stayed at this hotel and loved it. The corner spa room was fabulous with amazing views over the beach and city, the bathroom was fantastic, the room was huge and there were so many small details in the hotel that made it a really special couple of days. The location and proximity to restaurants and the beach was great.
We would definitely stay here again - thank you!

We enjoyed our stay here but the highlight was dinner at Room 81 which had a much higher standard to food and service than typically found in a hotel. Staff here are universally cheery and helpful and the local neighbourhood has lots of dining options. Social restaurant and bar across the road was exceptional as is Restaurant Ten a block away. The hotel building itself is over 20 years old and rooms of this era were smaller with more humble bathrooms however the Sofitel rooms look contemporary and were comfortable. It was an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth the extra few dollars

Bonjour Ross Y,

Thank you for your great review of Room 81, our chef hatted restaurant, at Sofitel Gold Coast! We are so fortunate to have such a professional and passionate crew in the restaurant, and I know they will enjoy reading your feedback.

And yes, we are also fortunate to have other award winning restaurants in the immediate area, and you have mentioned two of our favorites, so clearly a foodie at the other end of this review. It makes planning a gourmet escape very easy-and because all of these places are only a short stroll, you are easily able to indulge a little and not have to worry about a drive home.

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you back on the coast soon!

Warm regards,
Amery Burleigh

Good friendly staff, great pool, restaurant, and right in the middle of all we need.
Close to the beach, cafes, shops and casino. Just had our 25th Wedding anniversary and received bottle of champagne in ice bucket on the house ..very thoughtfull.. cant wait to go back

Room Tip: look out for the specials and request upgrade to ocean view and if your budget is a little more corn...

Bonjour Sportsfan12013,

Thank you for your ongoing support and nice review of your recent return visit to the Sofitel Gold Coast. It is always nice to hear from our loyal regulars and how they acknowledge that we are constantly looking for ways to improve our guest's experience.

We have very low turnover in the hotel and this greatly helps us focus on our guest experience as opposed to a focus on learning a job or position responsibility. Our regulars know we deeply care for our guests and their overall experience and the entire team take pride in the providing some of the best service in Australia.

Thank you again and we look forward to continuing to welcome you back to the hotel to see what new services we are providing.

Warm regards,
Amery Burleigh

The Sofitel is located in a great section of Broadbeach. It's a bustling area with many restaurants, coffee shops and retail shops within walking distance. It's a bustling area so don't expect serenity. The hotel itself is very well maintained and clean. The rooms are well appointed. The staff are very good and always willing to help. We upgraded to a "sea view" room for an extra $35 a night but didn't have any sea view, so probably not worth it. There is underground secure parking (at a cost). We used the restaurant for breakfast. They supply a buffet which has an excellent and broad selection of cold and hot foods. The restaurant staff are always willing to assist and the chef was always willing to accommodate any request. There are two pools (one heated) and a spa which are outside. It's located on a the 3rd floor with great views. The gym is basic (a few treadmills and bicycles) but there is a well equipped gym next door which is open 24/7 (at a cost of $16 per day). The room rates were very good and we would definitely stay here again.
