Tuesday 18th November 2014 3:25PM (AEST) Since November 2009, I have traveled throughout New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria reviewing and inspecting the quality of accommodation providers from pub hotels with severely poor customer ratings through to superior five star establishments who have missed the mark against a rigorous Quality Assurance model and framework, which is adopted by the Leading...

After reading a few reviews, I had my doubts...but as soon as I opened the door I was amazed at the amount of space I had. My own private balcony, fully decked out kitchen, washing machine, dryer, air-con. O.K so a few things weren't fully functional, but at $69 a night, this is the best I've seen for that price...

Have to tell of our experience of Raffles...we stayed as family for a reunion again in July 2014, having stayed there for 2-3 weeks every year for the past 8 years. Our stay has always been pretty faultless with any request met with ease by on-site management. Great BBQ and pool area for sharing with friends. 5 minute walk to... More

My family was very well looked after and we loved the pool area which our balcony overlooked! It's a bit noisy but hey it's the middle of surfers right? Nice facilities and economical. Easy access shops and all the best attractions of the Gold Coast Thanks!

I had the misfortune of staying here on the weekend of 2nd August and it was the biggest waste of money ever. We had a 2 bedroom unit on the top floor. We climbed the 3 flights of stairs to get there only to open the door on the shabbiest unit I have ever seen. It was dirty and shabby,... More

Basic 1 room apartment. Simple cooking facilities, washing machine and drier. Right on pacific highway. Spotlessly clean but appears to have been decorated by Ikea. The blinds are not light proof so some of the area lighting enters the bedroom all night. The G: tram although not yet open to the public runs until fairly late and is noticeable. I... More

I had read the reviews after I booked and was worried. I had emailed ahead and asked if they could mind our bag until check-in, they said they would, but when we got there our room was ready hours before check-in time. The manager was very friendly throughout the entire week we were there and we had no problem with... More

I tried to cancel my accommodation and was laughed at and told they would not cancel it, even though I was told I could when I booked. Very bad experience and would not recommend to anyone. Even though it seems great value, I would spend the money elsewhere. Very rude staff and very uncooperative
