Booked two rooms on this return visit. A family room for hubby, my self and teenage daughter as well as a twin room for my two teenage boys. Check in wasn't until 2.30 but arrived on GC early and checked in so we could park car and go for lunch but both rooms were ready and available early (12.20pm!!) yey!... More

Stayed in a few Grand Chancellors in Australia, this one was quite basic compared to others, but well located if you want to be right in the middle of noisy Surfers Paridise. Slow lifts and very young crowd, even in July.

Stayed here with friends for an overnight stay. Check in was a lengthy process. Room was basic, tired and old. Has an 'old motel on a highway' feel about it. Expect no frills. Check out was a debacle - front desk ran out of parking tickets and demanded we pay the full amount in parking even though we were asked... More

Stayed at the Hotel Grand Chancellor for one night. The best thing about this hotel is its location, backing on to Cavill Avenue, near all the shops and a very short walk to the beach. Rooms were clean and comfortable and service was great. Breakfast was a solid buffet. Recommended.

The hotel is pretty huge with a large number of rooms, but that is not a deterrent to the services they provide. Very courteous and helpful staff. The rooms have a view to kill for, with a look out to the surfers paradise beach and the dazzling city as well. The breakfast buffet is very varied and is delicious as... More

We had our wedding ceremony organised there, near the pool... The staff was really helpful.. We also stayed there for 3 nights. This hotel is walking distance to the beach, the shops, the night market, and the Main Street in surfers paradise, as well as the nightclubs. They have a great customer service. Highly recommended

We were looking for a hotel close to Cavil Mall and the Grand Chancellor offered us a great price. Knowing that the hotel was pretty old, we had some doubts about booking, but it turned out to be a very comfortable overnight stay. As expected, the room was a bit tired with wear marks in the bathroom and dated furniture,... More

Good priced mini family holiday, stayed Friday night and Saturday night and all you can hear is the loud screaming and pumping music from the night clubs and people out in the street of Cavil Ave. good ocean view, comfy beds and nice food in the buffet breakfast.

Stayed here with my partner this time last year and still can't get over how amazing grand chancellor was! We came back to surfers last week and stayed at another popular hotel closer to chevrons island which certainly did not come close to meeting hotel grand chancellors standards but yet was rated 4.5 star as well. The building on the... More
