I and my wife stayed at the Raffles Royale for nearly three weeks in December. After arriving at Brisbane airport we took the train and taxi to our accommodation. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the manager who gave us a low down on the hotel and showed us how to get our bearings. Our room was very commodious... More

Disgusting apartment. My family and O decided to stay for Easter in Goldcoast away from the city, for $150 a night. Molds around the house, broken aircon, stained/dirty carpet and pillows, beds are uncomfortable. The location is the only good thing about this apartment. This is my opinion and experience it varies from person to person.

Had a really great stay with my two children, mum, dad and my brother also stayed in another apartment. Great to come home to a home feel. Especially needed the washer and dryer with the kids. Great prices and rates. Will go back.

Initial impressions were pretty average as many basic things were missing from the room (plug, scrubbing brush, chopping board, hairdryer which was specifically stated would be available) and staff seemed rushed and unorganised. Eventually received basic items after requesting them. However never managed to get "free unlimited wifi" to work. Excuses were made for missing items rather than apologies. We... More

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!
