The manage is a pig. Stayed on the ground floor, the dead lock didn't work. Wasn't wanting to assist at all. His comments was what do you want me to do about it, Stand outside your door all night. Considering we were on the ground floor some security would be nice, even for a budget place. Tried to get a... More

Very basic apartment in need of some maintenance and a freshen-up. Somewhat disappointed based on the price. Expected a better setup. No instructions provided regarding check-in on Sunday afternoon, with office closed. Phone there to call for help, but wrong number displayed at phone. Fortunately for me, part time manager came out while I was struggling, and let me in... More

My partner and I stayed at Budds Beach Apartments recently for a short holiday to the Gold Coast. Being on a budget, we were somewhat sceptical about the quality of accommodation we would find, but our expectations were exceeded! On arrival, at about 10am thanks to an early flight, we were pleased to find our room already made and available... More

An excellent value for money place to stay. Clean, neat and everything you need. We weren't sure what to expect as some reviews were not so good. But hey if you want 5 star then expect to pay for it, but if you don't want to spend all your holiday money on accommodation and are happy with a quality budget... More

'twas a good place to stay. Location is great! Not a far walk from Cavill Avenue. It's good for what you pay for. We wouldn't mind coming back here again. Room is decent. In need of a reno but is reasonably clean.

Was in Surfers a while back and stayed at Budd's Beach. Very roomy apartment with nice kitchen setup, however the bed felt sandy like the sheets weren't clean. It is literally walking distance to Surfers so thoroughly enjoyed the 24 hour woolies shopping and restaurants that were nearby. There is a laundry area downstairs and the outdoor pool looked painfully... More

All units have their own washing machine and dryer located inside each apartment. There is no laundry area located downstairs or anywhere else on the property. Apologies for the dirty linen as described, if reception was notified of this during your stay we could have remade the bed for you at no extra cost. We have just finished a reconstruction... More

First of all, the photo which they had on their website did not include the actual building, which is a very unisnpiring low rise - because of the photo I thought I will be in an appartment high up over the river. The whole flat is about 40 sq m and stinks of chemicals, the bedroom is tiny - hard... More

Good location, clean and modern apartment. Terrible shower, uncomfortable sofa, bed wasn't the most comfortable. No toaster in the room. Not worth the amount we paid.

I stayed at Budds for 4 nights after buying a deal from Groupon (4 nights for $275). The Ad was misleading as under the 'Deal' part, 'Wi-Fi' was included as well as late check out, so presumably, I thought I'd have access to the net. Unfortunately, it is a paid connection and the prices are the most expensive I have... More
