Yes, the last day of the Australian part of Hazel and Ted's Excellent Adventure has unfortunately arrived! We have enjoyed everywhere we have been and have begun to realise just how big this continent is! Learning, at this late stage, to order just one fresh fruit platter between two and one portion of toast, had "brekkie", as the say here, at …

... and this one certainly wasn’t an exception. It had a very open layout with one very large, high ceilinged room that made up the kitchen, eating area and 2 separate lounge spaces. We were weary from our travels and gladly accepted the offer of a drink. We met the 2 other sons, a pair of twins called Daniel and Liam who were a fair bit younger than Marcus and the father of the of the family, Scott. We all sat to have a chicken dinner and get to know each other. It had been ...

Day 1 in Paris

Not feeling too tired, we caught the metro up to Sacre Coeur. Great views of Paris but very crowded. We then walked down to Montmartre. Pretty sleazy but a must see. I don't think I would like to walk around there at night.

Stuffed by this time so caught the metro back to near the hotel. Warren and Richard wanted ...

... afternoon in the park, Easter Sunday with a French family as well as attending Hillsong church in it's Aussie home and then Monday walking in the park and meeting some proper Aussies! It is lovely to be back in a home rather than a hostel and with some sad news from home at the end of last week it is nice to have some home comforts! So that has been my rather more relaxed week. I am afraid that it may not make for interesting reading but I ...

    Very plush hotel but wouldn't stay again. Restaurant and bar prices OTT! It's classed as 4 Star but Rooms are standard with everything being a user pay scenario. Room has an older TV with no connections for USB which does not allow guests to watch movies via hard drive etc-in house movies $34.95 for 24 hours!
    Location is fantastic with Central train station and a food court two levels down. Harlequin Jack's one level down great bar and awesome food with a happy hour every day!
    Thirty minutes walk to Southbank which is just fantastic. Noodles night markets every weekend from 5.30 onwards. However, parking there is very expensive $16.00 first three hoursWalk thru gardens as they are lovely.
    Sun crop a 20 minute walk and one must go to Caxton St for pre drinks, more so if Warriors are playing!

    Loved it here at the Sofitel!
    Very comfortable! I don't know why they ask if you want to upgrade on arrival as the only benefit would be the early check-in and breakfast. Our room was perfect. Breakfast is much more economically obtained outside the hotel, although the dining facilities here are superb. We ate dinner in the restaurant the first night, due to the storm raging outside and torrential rain- lovely buffet but very pricey. Perfect pool and sunbathing area outside on the 3 rd floor. Staff all very friendly and helpful and there is complimentary wifi in the lobby for an hour every day. Hotel is in a great position and is intimately attached to Central Station, as in just a doorway away from the lobby!  Very sorry to leave!

    We arrived to reception around 10am to be told we had an upgrade and could check in straight away. What a fabulous welcome! This hotel is centrally located, close to the Mall and shops and situated above the train station (great if coming from the airport). No train noise either, so well sound proofed. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    A bit disappointed


    Had stayed at this hotel 3 times before when it was the Sheraton. The public areas, location and overall ambience is still a very high standard but a few issues spoilt the stay. As I was an early arrival, I expected to have to wait for my room. When I was advised that the room was ready at 2pm the receptionist was exceedingly unfriendly and unwelcoming. The room itself was of a high standard but I dont expect on arrival into my room to see wet patches of carpet, black hair all over the bath, or rubbish left by the previous guest! With a bit more care, this hotel could proudly be a true 5 star but they need to work on these issues. I may now consider an alternative hotel for my next visit to Brisbane.

    Nice Hotel but MyBed not for all


    Stayed overnight in at the Sofitel Brisbane in a Sofitel Club twin bed room and our room rate included access to the Sofitel Club Lounge (their temporary one anyway as they were still building their new one) for canapes and drinks (basic spirits, wine, beer) and buffet breakfast in the Sidewalk Cafe.

    Proudly Supports Our Veterans


    This hotel is great I recently stayed their for a week and will again in the nEw year for the RSL Girl in a Million Quest which raises funds for our war veterans. It had the best service and a wonderful atmosphere. It is so close to the city and to transport and could not be more peaceful. A great place to stay and help support a company that is a major sponsor of the quest and aids in the care and well being of our veterans, Special rates apply to veterans and serving defence members.

    A Good Choice


    Located above Central station in Brisbane, the Sofitel could not be more convenient. The hotel is two blocks from the Queen Street Mall, the main shopping district in the city.

    Pleasant Experience


    The Sofitel Brisbane was a professional establishment, with pleasing decor throughout.

    Now known as the Sofitel Brisbane - Fantastic!


    Just arrived home from a 4 day stint at the Sofitel Brisbane (formerly known as Sheraton Brisbane) and what can I say but Fantastic!

    The service was great, the staff were practically falling over themselves to help us. The accommodation itself was lovely, clean, modern and comfortable. The food was always perfect, and the buffett in the Sidewalk Cafe (located in the lobby) was worth every cent.

    Be careful with staff at Sheraton Brisbane


    My wife and I recently stayed at the Sheraton Brisbane and booked on Expedia. The price included breakfast and yet the hotel argued about the breakfast coverage at the time of checkin, checkout and charged my credit card for two days breakfast after we had checked out of the hotel. Although Expedia said it would take care of the charges, it was a hassle that should not have occurred at a so-called five star hotel.

    By the way, if you complain to Sheraton Worldwide here in the States (Starwood Preferred Hotels) about this Sheraton, they tell you the Sheraton Brisbane is not really part of the Sheraton chain so you will have to take it up with the hotel itself. It is a mystery to them (Sheraton Worldwide) who owns the Sheraton Brisbane?! Go figure.

    Very nice hotel - shame it is leaving the Starwood programme


    I stay at this hotel a lot for work reasons and have chosen to stay there also when I am in Brisbane on holidays. It is well located, and the rooms are always clean and spacious. The decor is a bit on the minimalist side (which is in contrast to the way it used to be some years ago) but fine. Aircon always works well and bathrooms are spacious and clean. Check in is always efficient and the staff are helpful. Room service is always delivered efficiently and I have never had a bad meal. The restaurant downstairs (Sidewalk Cafe) is pretty good, and lots of locals go in for the seafood buffet. It is very good, but perhaps a tad on the expensive side unless you can eat your weight in prawns and smoked salmon (which are both devine!) There is also a more upmarket a la carte restaurant called Carriages that is very good too.

    Excellent Hotel


    We stayed at the Sheraton on our last night in Australia. Our sizeable room had a clean, contemporary design. Large windows took advantage of city views. The bathroom was large and had a speaker in the ceiling that was connected to the T.V. The room's best feature was the luxurious bedding!

    The hotel was located within a five-minute walk away from the outdoor shopping mall/promenade.

    Very High Standard


    We recently stayed at the Sheraton for a bit of a 'weekend away'. For a 5 star hotel it is of a very high standard - as you'd expect for a respected chain hotel.

    The rooms have decent windows affording good views of the city. The TV cable channels, bathroom, and bed are all excellent. There is a supermarket and other stores less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel. And the train station is right below it.

    One thing worth noting is that the restaurant menu is quite expensive and it was cheaper for us to have food delivered to our room.
