Great location and the surf right across the road with awesome views toward coolangatta and out to sea. Priced right at $114 for a beachfront hotel room for two. Older building but suitable for a base while exploring the gold coast and surfers paradise. We had room 901 9th floor.

We were on the 16th floor and had an amazing view, so close to Cavill Ave, yet far enough to not hear the noise all night. Rooms are a little run down but it appears renovations are underway. Will definitely stay there again :)

Stayed here with friends early this month. We booked a beach view apartment at $102 per night. The location is easily accessible and close to shops and restaurants. The staff at the reception were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in apartment 701. The apartment has big glass windows all the sides with city and beach views. There is no balcony... More

We had a wedding down the Gold Coast so decided to have a 2 night break after many checks on the net we went and checked out the above hotel, was very centrally located in Surfers one block back from the Mall. Foyer was very clean and well organised, staff more than helpful. We picked a room with a view... More

I booked three nights in the Gold Coast before flying to Cairns. The Gold Coast is quite an expensive place to stay, so for a little bit more I went all out and went Chateau Beachside. There's no hiding the fact it is a little dated and tired, but I was really happy there. On one of the booking sites,... More

Got this stay at a discounted rate on Agoda and I am very pleased with the booking. The location along the beach provided a great view of the sea and it is within walking distance to the shops & eateries on Surfers paradise. The furniture in the room is slightly old but everything you need is provided & in good... More

Great position. Always stay here, probably around 10 times now. The staff are friendly, windows are being replaced and now any client staying more than 1 night can have a free continental breakfast. Will be back.

We have spent a 10 day holiday at Chateau Beachside, in room 1302 (beachfront views)' and could not be happier! We heard that the rooms were a little old, but did not find this to be the case. They were well kept, extremely clean and tidy, and not too expensive. Would recommend to any couples coming to Surfers. Also, everything... More

Though the building is old and a little tired, it is just across from the beach and our 'hotel' room was clean and comfortable. From our corner room, we had panoramic ocean views from both our front and side windows (even from the toilet!) and could hear the waves roaring - fantastic. The staff are friendly and helpful and the... More
