We have a baby and specially requested a room with a bath over a month before our check in date. We were advised to pay extra to make sure we got the bath. They gave away our room, down graded us, and argued with us that we were in the wrong. Got a baby bath in the end...

Positive: Great location. Negative: No housekeeping everyday. Dirt in each and every corner of an apartment. Move the curtains and you will have a cool surfer paradise breezes blended with dirt on curtains as well as you can see lumps of dirt and infectious material on window/door/carpet frames.

After reading other reviews for this hotel, I can only agree wholeheartedly. This hotel has an excellent location, the rooms are clean but dated and the staff are terrible!! The service we received upon check in and during our stay from the front office staff was a joke. We were made to feel like an inconvenience to their day, not... More

Another great stay at Chateau Beachside. View from 10th floor was fabulous as usual. Can't beat the location and amenities, so good. I always tell everyone back here I'm going up to my other home. Love it. Only sad part was short stay because of commitments back home. I'll be back.

This hotel sits in a really nice spot, walking distance to everything you need (public transport, supermarket, restaurants). The hotel shows his age but my room was absolutely CLEAN - well done to staff members and the cleaners (usually left behind in many reviews!). Great views also, just beware that rooms facing the beach could be noisy, but the windows... More

This hotel has a great location. You're paying for the view and the convenience of being across the road from the beach, and a block away from the main cavill strip. We were fortunate enough to grab a room facing the beach which was great. The room quality is fairly dated, and so it the rest of the building. However,... More

We visited Chateau Beachside in Oct 2014 for 4 nights. We have specifically requested Oceanside view room, we were slightly disappointed that the room only had a corner view as oppose to a beach front view. The location of the hotel was excellent, it was very close to the beach. great selection of restaurants and supermarket all within walking distance.... More

The girl on reception was in the middle of checking us in, when she answered a phone call, even though there was another staff member sitting there. She just left us standing there for ten minutes while she answered a list of questions to the customer on the phone. We thought that was very rude. We requested the 'highest floor... More

We spent one night at this hotel in october. We had a room facing north on the 13th floor and had the most wonderful view up the beach-lovely to wake up and see it in the morning. Room was spacious-with seperate sitting area and kitchenette with microwave and plenty of crockery and glasses. It is dated-but as long as its... More

With a great location opposite the beach side along promenade. This is the right hotel/condo to stay with. A short walk to the center of the paradise where all clubs, restaurant and night life are situated. I guess nothing you can ask for more. The condo is spacious and clean but don't have housekeeping services less than 4 days stay,... More
