Sofitel Brisbane Central
Sofitel Brisbane Central sits perched high above historic Central Station – a 5 star hotel in a prime CBD location for business travellers or visitors to Brisbane.
With accommodation of 433 rooms ranging from standard to luxury suites, the Sofitel Brisbane also features a rooftop gymnasium, terrace pool and hot tub, day spa (Stephanie’s Spa), 24 hour business centre, champagne bar and 2 restaurants – the more casual Thyme2 and an upmarket French-inspired dining room Prive249.
Rooms have espresso pod machines, luxe amenities, bathtubs and Moet et Chandon in the mini-bar and Sofitel Club members have access to the exclusive Club Lounge on the 30th floor.
Guests at Sofitel will also enjoy one of the best gyms in town with separate cardio and weight areas, with the cardio room offering a line-up of treadmills with a birds eye view across the city.
When it comes to wining and dining, there’s no need to go anywhere else, with the chic sunken champagne bar, the Cuvee Lounge Bar, the perfect place to relax with a glass of vintage or non-vintage champagne from one of the world’s great champagne houses, premium wine, cocktail, coffee and light all day grazing menu or an elegant high tea overlooking Anzac Square and the heritage-listed GPO.
For a fine dining experience, Prive249, an elegant intimate dining room with ceiling to floor windows that also overlooks Anzac Square and the GPO, offers a fine French-inspired menu prepared by the Sofitel’s Executive Chef. On the menu are Entrees such as Duck Carpaccio with celery and foie gras or Queensland Sea Scallops Thermidor with rocket, apple salad and walnut, Mains such as Grilled Beef Filet and Crayfish and Desserts including Bitter Chocolate Fondant or Joel’s Platter for Two (8 petite sweet chef’s samplers).
Thyme2 is the hotel’s massive lobby restaurant where hotel guests can enjoy one of the city’s best buffet breakfasts, as well as signature seafood buffets and exquisite French pastries by the in-house pastry chef.
The buffet breakfast is well laid out with different themed ‘food stations’ to prevent queue build-ups: Fruit; Cereals; Pastries and Bakery; Cheese and Charcuterie; Smoked Fish and bagels; Indian vegetarian and a hot line-up including an Omelette station, as well as help-yourself house made beans, waffles, pancakes, eggs benedict, bacon, roast tomatoes, mushrooms, scrambled eggs and so forth.
Coffee is barista-made and ordered from the waiter and tea drinkers have their own Tea Station with an impressive array of teas, otherwise you can make your own juice or enjoy a pre-made smoothie from the cereal station.
