Having read some of the less complimentary reviews I had some concerns re Soul, but was absolutely blown away as our stay was perfect. The only glitch was arriving after 11pm where getting in was difficult, but this was minor. We were on the 52nd floor, fantastic views, and never had to wait for an elevator. Self parking included which... More

Wow. We stayed 2 nights for a wedding at Soul and it was wonderful. Hotel and rooms are so luxurious and the views from the ocean view rooms are to die for. We stayed on the 7th floor and it felt like the beach was within arm’s reach, just beautiful. So glad we didn’t stay on the higher floors where... More

We had a lovely stay during our holiday for 4 nights. We had high expectations and were not at all disappointed by the outcome. We stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom ocean view apartment. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. There is nothing at all to complain about and the service and welcome we received on the first day was... More

You know it's going to be a great place when your partner calls up and asks "Can you please do something special in the room for my girl when we arrive" and their response is "oh..you won't need to, our hotel is amazing without it"!!! And boy was it! We stayed in a beautiful room with beautiful fixtures, artwork, bedding... More

Just completed a 6 night stay and loved every minute of it. They say you get what you pay for and with the Soul it's all class. The rooms are fantastic and fitted out with all the mod cons and they are of the highest spec. The staff are very friendly and a special mention to Layla at front reception... More

Dear ozziestew1972, We appreciate the fantastic review on Trip Advisor following your recent stay. I could imagine that children that have never been in a lift may find it a little frightening, but I am delighted that our team, in particular Layla, put them at ease to make sure that the whole family could have a memorable holiday.

We couldn't decide between Soul or The Marriott so did a few days at both. This is apartment style rather than resort style, but still with a full service (apartments made up each day). We had a plunge pool apartment but unfortunately it was too cold to use it! However it would have been fantastic in the summer and you... More

Soul hotel did not (mostly) disappoint. We were hoping for a comfortable, luxury mini-break (3 nights) in Surfers Paradise, and Soul met our criteria more than adequately. We had a 1-bedroom, ocean-view apartment on the 25th floor. The apartment was large and extremely well furnished, with two large balconies with uninterrupted views of the glistening Surfers Paradise beach. I don't... More

My husband surprised me for our wedding anniversary with a relaxing 5 days at Soul. I say this is one of the best stays on the GC because of the following reasons: 1. SPACIOUS!!
