Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach
Travel Blogs from Broadbeach
Arrived about midday, picked up my rented Corolla from Avis, and headed for the Sofitel in Broadbeach, which I probably would have found without any problem regardless of the GPS I hired. Great location right in the middle of some very good bars and restaurants including Koi (where I had a late lunch of duck pancakes and Moroccan lamb) and Moo Moos …
I went up to Queensland the other day to escape the cold Melbourne weather. It was raining when we arrived which made me think 'Why did I come here?'. The next two days were nice and sunny.
We stopped by to see the Moores. Steve said Pam wanted for all of us to go out to eat at an Italian restaurant for supper. Pam arranged to pick all of us up with a Maxi Taxi and went to the hotel Soffitel. The Mario restaurant was pretty busy. It must be a very popular restaurant. I ordered Today's special of linguini with shrimps and mushrooms. …

It was fantastic day spent with my boys - wish we could have celebrated with our own moms too!
Monday, brought a mommy and Lucas day - we went to a play "Room on the Broom", based on a book by Julia Donaldson, had a bike ride and went to the library and finished it with gymnastics.
The days are flying by now, can't believe it's already middle of May!

Great location right in the middle of Broadbeach and surrounded by some very good bars and restaurants including Koi (where I had a late lunch of duck pancakes and Moroccan lamb) and Moo Moos which is right across the road from the hotel. Kurrawa Surf Life Savers Club and the beach is just a 5 minute walk away, and the lovely Cascade Park about 10 minutes walk. Rooms are comfortable and my balcony looked south over the beach and the water even though I didn't upgrade to an ocean view.
