We stayed for 3 nights in the 1 bedroom apartment. Thank you for giving us a high floor, the view of the city was beautiful! Even thou the place is a bit older looking that didn't bothered us, the apartment had everything we needed especially kitchenette with microwave to prepare milk & food for my baby.

We paid $145 for one night's stay including breakfast for two and we were given room 101 on the tenth floor. We purchased internet immediately as we had told them during our booking that this was important. Upon entering our room, we discovered we could not get internet because our room ended with the numeral 1. I explained that we... More

Dear Clint F, Thank you for your constructive criticism, I am deeply sorry for the disruption caused to your sleep due to surrounding guests. The property has 24 hour Reception and Security of an evening, these matters should have been dealt with pro-actively prior to it affecting your stay. However we have investigated your call to Reception and it is... More

Location is great. But apart from that there's not that much more to say. Very average dated rooms. Very loud. The hotel is in the very centre of surfers paradise. Right next to shops and restaurants. And just a few minute walk to the main beach.

Thanks for your feedback Miapod12; we really appreciate your comments. You are correct that being so central to Surfers Paradise the hotel does experience some noise pollution from time to time. If you had of raised this with reception they may have been able to move you to another room higher up or with an alternative aspect to reduce the... More

Pro: 1. Location is excellent. It is just situated opposite Hard Rock Café and Surfers Paradise Mall. The beach is just less than 2-3mins walk away. Everything from cafes, pubs, restaurants and souvenir shops are within walking distance. The tram stop is also nearby. Hotel has a small pool if you dislike swimming in the sea. It has a small...

The location of this hotel is ideal! Shops, pubs, restaurants, the beach, just everything is at walking distance which was great. The room I stayed in, I am not a big fan of. It just seem too old and run down. It could need some renovation. As it appeared to be old and run down, it didnt appear to be... More

We've been to the Islander 6 times over the last 10 years or so, travelling as a young family mostly, sometimes with friends. We generally stay between 3-7 nights at a time. Although the property is clearly dated, we don't mind as a room is used as a place to shower and sleep - so the Islander gets ticks in... More

We booked a room here for $109. We didn't expect much for $109 being Surfers Paradise, but the room we were given at the Islander Resort Hotel was not acceptable. Upon entering the room we were struck with an offensive odour. Moving throughout the room brought an array of unpleasant scents depending on where you stood. The bathroom smelt of... More

Dear Michael B, I do apologise for the disruption and disappointment that you experienced on checking in. We do have a non-smoking room policy throughout the property but guests are permitted to smoke on the external balconies, as a non-smoker I do recognise the discomfort odours can cause. So that I can investigate the problems raised personally and action appropriately,... More

We arrived at the hotel after an hour's drive from Brisbane airport and weren't too impressed with the interiors. Seemed to be about average with a tiny bathroom and no microwave. But a look out of the balcony changed my opinion. Could see the sea from one side and the bustling city on the other. It is located right in... More
