My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights while completing medical treatment. It offers the most stunning absolute beachfront views second to none. Management are just lovely and caring people. Our apartment (all 3 bedrooms) was lovely, somewhat dated furniture but still tasteful, comfortable and clean. Perfectly situated halfway between Surfers and broadbeach so everything is at your fingertips... More

Our family of 6 stayed for 2 weeks in Jan 2014 and loved it! There were a few things that could be improved but all in all, it was fabulous. We rented a 3 bedroom apartment which had stunning views over the beach and was within easy walking distance to The Esplanade shopping mall (15 min with a pram), the... More

When the door opens to apartment 5 the first thing you notice is the light, and then the space. It is bright and open and absolutely beautiful. My family (2 adults 3 teens) stayed here for 7 nights and did not want to leave - we could live here. It is just so easy and so relaxing. Although only on... More

Stayed for a week recently with guests from the UK & we were very impressed by the facilities, apartment & service. Location was great, walking distance to everything & my 2 yr old son couldn't have been happier with the easy access to the beach & pool. We also had some relatives visit for lunch one day & it was... More

As a family of 4, including 2 teenagers the Dorchester was enjoyed by us all. We were in apartment 29 on the 14th floor and the views from every window and the front and rear balconies were absolutely awesome. The apartment was recently renovated and in addition to a lovely main bathroom the two queen bedrooms both had modern en... More

Hi, my family stayed here but unfortunately we were on the 2nd floor above the pool. The water heating unit sounds like an 747 jet engine...VERY noisy...and of course they only run it at night... Also, the horizontal blinds did little to keep out the building/street lighting at night. I asked the building manager if the pool heating could be... More

We stayed in unit 2 - the views were fantastic and the apartment was clean. However, it was in need of an update or at the very least some maintenance especially in the kitchen. The carpet was quite stained and the windows were dirty. Very uncomfortable lounge suite. No blankets were supplied for the main bedroom and only cotton blankets... More

Only just having returned from our holiday at the Dorchester I felt the need to hop on here and just say what a perfect place the Dorchester is for a family holiday. its so well located that besides the views from every window and door, it is also only a short trip to all theme parks, 20 min or under...

We stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment at 9th floor. The living room and the kitchen faced the sea directly. We could hear the waves constantly bashing onto the coast when the doors to the balcony were open. We had a great time cooking and sipping wine while enjoying the sea view. Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercar Race was on when... More
