Studio apartment, great value for money, well kept, clean and tidy. Only annoying thing is there are renovations going on and our apartment didn't have any railing to the balcony. Hence we couldn't open the doors and use the balcony. It would have been nice if we had known this beforehand. Will be nice once the renovations are completed.

We had to revert to Plan B when friends we were going to visit could not be home at the time. Purchased 2 nights through Groupon Travel selection based on price, location and other positive tripadvisor review comments. We were certainly not disappointed. Building is rather dated but that is where the negatives end. Location is perfect right across the... More

She is old but she is well kept and in the best location possible. I stay here roughly every 6 weeks for business and I enjoy it every time. With 3 spas, Sauna, Pool and on site cafe/restaurant, the facilities cant be beat. The price is even better with off season rates at under $100 Aud per night for a... More

We recently booked a studio room on Bookings.com for the Chateau Beachside, it's a nice 'older' hotel but our studio was extremely spacious with amazing views. Separate ensuite, kitchen with hotplates, microwave, toaster/kettle etc. for food preparation if you are wanting to save some $$ by dining in. A dining area for 4 as well as a sofa bed and... More

In a perfect location for all things in surfers paradise. We stayed 3 nights. We had the 1 bedroom room and was good for us as a couple. Had to dine out for every meal as there were limited facilities. Room was neat and presented well. Overall a good place and would recommend to others.

Big rooms lots of space. Hit water. Flat screen TV and ocean views. Nice place. Only grump is that there is construction happening. Lots of loud drilling and noise from 8am throughout the day. Make sure you get a room high up to avoid the drilling through concrete. Great place otherwise...

Stayed here for 3 nights in June. Nice hotel in a very convenient location, short walk to lots of restaurants and shops and just a hop over the road onto the beach. Our room was large, comfortable but needs a bit of redecorating. Had a lovely beachside view which was a plus. Didn't manage to use the pool as it... More

This is by no means a 4 star hotel but for the price is has to be one of the best options in Surfer's... The room was old and a bit worn but was very large and had a great view over the beach. Hotel is situated right on the beach and close to restaurants and nightlife.
