Luxury high-rise complex with entertainment options galore in buzzy Broadbeach
While Australia is famed for its natural wonders, in buzzy Broadbeach on Queensland’s Gold Coast, manmade attractions are also a major draw. The high-rise Sofitel, with its 296 rooms, two pools, and access to a casino and shopping mall, is perfect for those who like to be at the center of the action. Pared down rooms in white and brown allow the city or Pacific Ocean views to pop, with all the amenities you’d expect of a major 5 star resort, like marble bathrooms and flatscreen TVs. There are two dining options, both with a sophisticated urban vibe; TC’s sports bar offers a more casual ambiance plus a host of indoor games.
In the Area
The Gold Coast boasts some of Australia’s most renowned surfing beaches like the aptly named Surfers Paradise; beginners can get a taste for the waves at the Cheyne Horan Surf School. The area is also known for its Humpback Whale sightings; boats like Spirit of the Gold Coast offer half day tours. Kids will get a kick out of the region’s theme parks like Sea World, Warner Brothers’ Movie World, and Wet ‘n’ Wild Gold Coast, while animal lovers will adore Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the perfect place to spot kangaroos, koalas, and crocs.
How to Get There
Stayed here for a conference . Had strong expectations given experience all round the world with Sofitel. This property does not live up to the brand expectation. Arrived on Sunday afternoon and room was not ready. That was ok because we were a little early. We are asked to wait and they would ring us at 3. 3pm cane no phone call and many others getting rooms. We were in plain sight of the staff. What was more frustrating was the friendly smiles and constant “bonjour” not backed up by service. We missed our first meeting due to the lateness of getting to our room . We had ordered the fin review for each morning . All went well Day 1 then the following two days the local paper delivered. Given I was at a banking conference and wanted to be on top of the business news thus was disappointing. Room was good this is why I rated a 3
I recently had a short stay at the Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach. The hotel is well located - walking distance to beach, shops, casino and convention centre. Modern and well equipped, my room was clean and spacious, with a good sized bathroom. Breakfast buffet was a bit pricey, but the spread on offer was extensive - more than plenty to choose from. I would happily stay here again.
Stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend recently. Beautiful property, reasonable price & the staff were amazing. Location is great - we walked everywhere. The art featured around this hotel is beautiful also.
