    Very good”

    Good location, close to shopping and local attractions. Very friendly and professional staff. Only disappointment was that the power went off at 7am in the morning. Couldn't have a hot shower + needed needed to go down 20 levels of stairs as the lifts didn't work because of power outage.

    Nice Hotel in good location”

    Location, room size and facilities

    Hotel was decent, bathrooms were looking a little dated but the room was clean and very big. TV channel selection was also very good but some of the channels didn't have good reception, blurry and grainy. The location is great being in walking distance of some good restaurants, the beach and the casino.

    Location, Access to Beach, Access to Shopping and Restaurants

    If you want to be away from the crowded Surfers Paradise area then the Sofitel in Broardbeach is an ideal location. Great hotel with really nice room and within walking distance of the beach, local restaurants and shopping and just accross the road from the Jupitors Casino. All major tourist attractions are very easy to access from the Sofitel and whenever I am on the Gold Coast I will continue to stay there.

    Definitely not what you expect from a 5 star hotel! Positive: breakfast - food and restaurant staff were amazing Negatives: We returned to our room from a day morning out at 13:45 and I room was still unserviced. $15 a night for parking (which we were not warned about upon check in) on top of the high prices per room was really not on.

    Service over and above”

    When my booking fell through due to being fully booked, the staff at Sofitel did everything they could to ensure I was still able to stay there. Then they upgraded me to an ocean view room and sent up a bottle of bubbles when they learned it was my 40th birthday. Also the beds were so amazingly comfortable, it was as close as I believe you could get to sleeping on a cloud. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Broadbeach.

I have stayed in a few places with spa bath and was always nuch bigger to accommodate two people. Thought id get a bit more for my money

    Service, Location, Food

    It was brilliant and was a reminder of why I keep coming back whenever I need to stay on the GC. The service is just amazing. From the conference coordinator, reception team, restaurant staff and breakfast egg chef. The bathrooms are starting to show their age however this is no major issue.

    Very convenient location. Staff helpful and polite. Clean and well appointed room.

    We had a perfect stay! Everything we wanted was in our room, or brought up promptly and with a smile. Beds were great and the room and bathroom both nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Beach a short walk away, and the monorail to Jupiter's Casino (if you like that kind of thing) is accessed from 2Fl of hotel, so very convenient. Also in easy walking distance of excellent range of shops and restaurants and 5-minute drive from the massive Pacific Fair shopping centre. And secure guest self-parking was only day, which was excellent value.

    Best feature is location with easy access to restaurants, beach, shopping centre, swimming pool. It is an old hotel, though has been upgraded significantly, with large rooms and great views. Plenty of parking, though there is a charge. Lots of options for breakfast around the hotel. Easy to catch local buses to all attractions from close by.
