We have stayed at Tangalooma many times previously, but sadly this will be our last time. The dolphin feeding remains the most wonderful experience, but the resort is now overpopulated and a bit too much like a holiday camp.
I think this is a great place to go if you have kids as there is plenty to do, much of which is free. Do be wary though that winter travel means that many boat trips including whale watching and the sunset cruises will be cancelled, so you will have to make your own entertainment.
The place is clean and the staff great, but the décor is looking a bit tired (we went for the first time 15 years ago and the interiors are basically the same).
We arrived early and a room was available for us. So that was a good start. I had read some reviews about this hotel and most of them were negative. We had booked a flight/hotel package and were very happy with the price. When we arrived we were very pleased with the look of the hotel. Our room was spacious and clean. Some of the negative comments made were that the windows were dirty. Not in our room. We did not have the greatest view. We looked down on the air conditioning units and across to a brick wall. However, we were not concerned as it is hard in any hotel in the cbd to get a view as it is the city and there are buildings next to each other so what else could you expect?
We stayed at Manor apartments for one night only. Got room on 10th floor, very quiet hotel, wonderful staff, room was very clean and cosy. I'm 8months pregnant and found bed to be very comfortable as well as pillows.. great location, right in the city center. We had breakfast included in the price, it was great - really big choice (fresh eggs, cheese, ham, bread, cereal,yoghurt, jams, juices and of course tea and coffee)

We needed a low cost overnight stay for a conference at the Convention centre. We were able to park at the Hotel from before check in until after check out. The room was not large but not cramped. We didn't need space. The bathroom was clean and functional. The bed was more comfortable than I had expected for a lower price Hotel. It was only a short walk from the Hotel to Southbank and the city. We didn't eat at the restaurant so I have no comment on that. We would definitely return here for our next Brisbane stay.

We recently stayed for a weekend. It was absolutely fantastic. The bed was very comfy. The room was spacious and luxurious. The staff are so helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend staying at the Sofitel Brisbane. One comment though. Parking is quite expensive, I believe it should be included in the price of the hotel stay.
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
