“Nice city hotel”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

As part of the Sofitel chain, it is well looked after and neat/tidy. But as an old hotel that has been refurbished it still feels a bit dated. Foyer is great, rooms are neat and clean, bathrooms worn and showing their age.
Can't really complain about anything, we had a lovely stay and staff were fairy friendly & helpful. Taking one of the Audi's downstair for a test drive was a nice way to get around one morning.
Nothing special, nothing bad. Great location to explore Brisbanef city.

Our stay was extremely pleasant, staff were excellent and helpful. The hotel was very comfortable and close to everything we wanted in Brisbane. The parking and meals were slightly dearer than at the Melbourne Sofitel but it was most convenient to use the hotel parking. Our early arrival was not a problem as a room was available, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting quality accommodation in Brisbane.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in October. We were looking for a place that would be quiet but still central to shops, transport etc. We found the King size room to be just as the website depicted and were very pleased with the comfort of the bed. We were a liitle dissapointed in the lack of friendliness we experienced from the staff at check in and check out.

We had a great time, everyone was very kind & pleasant - the room was nice (2623) - probably needs a refurb in the future as we have stayed over the last 15 or so years as original members and it is now getting a little dated , especially the bathrooms.
Great food and Gluten Free - very important for me.
The credit card surcharge needs to be mentioned a little louder at the checkout to remind people that they can use their Eftpos, so as not to endure the extra 1.5% account a couple of days later!! Overall a good stay & we are back for my birthday on 24th Feb - see you soon!!

Paid extra for a club room and it was worthwhile - the lounge was very comfortable and included free drinks and nibblies, as well as breakfast. Compliments to the club lounge staff who really went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The room was also very good: comfortable bed and blockout curtains, had a great sleep there. We were also very happy with the location, as it was literally at the train station where the train from the airport dropped us and a short stroll to the shops. The only glitch was that the room key didn't immediately work and we had to take it back to the front desk, then it also stopped working the next day for some unknown reason. And the room did not get serviced on one day, had to call to have it done while we were out and about.
