The hotel may have been luxury gold standard in its hay day but it hasn’t been renovated or touched up since the day in was build. It was quite disappointing to pay top dollar for 5 star luxury but to end up with something similar to most older Novotels. Breakfast croissants were stale, gym equipment needs a good service, black mould on the ceilings and breakfast furniture from the 90s. Location and views were great though ! Beautiful ocean view from the balcony. P.S. what five star doesn’t have a coffee machine in the rooms ?!

Loved our recent stay at the Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach. Lovely rooms with excellent views, (we had the river view instead of the beach view, would get this again next time) nice balcony area to enjoy the evening views. Great location near all main restaurants, Star casino, shops and the beach. Staff are nice and helpful. Love the restaurant near the pool. The staff were great and I wish I could remember their names to thank them, especially the lady with the accent and the other lady who handed our little ones some activities to complete. Interacted with our little ones and the food was outstanding. Using the Accor plus discount was great as well. The pool areas were so lovely and relaxing. Can't wait to come back and enjoy more time at this hotel.
