Dated and in serious need of upgrading. Rooms clean. Lifts broken, small and felt sorry for people on higher levels who had to walk up the stairs or wait 20-30 mins for the lift!! Breakfasts good value and staff in kitchen were helpful. Took a group of young rugby players so was appropriate for our stay but would not stay... More

Hotel desperately needs a huge face lift, external & internal, very old, floor in bedroom uneven, (bit scary) furniture stained, carpet torn. Location is great, wonderful view of ocean, tram stop nearby, nice walk to Cavill Avenue, so it would very beneficial if owners spent some money on their property.

Never before have I been to a resort that didn't replenish towels.. In order to get clean towels you had to pay for the laundry fee... What exactly are we paying for? The bedding is thin and I was freezing! Service on arrival was rude, beach front hotel is extremely loud due to the wind, suggest heavier doors..

Very close to water. Enjoyed the view from the bed at 21st floor. View from balcony. Self contained, we enjoyed cooking our meal. Shower a bit small to fit in. Toilet privacy is an issue if someone sharing other than with partner. Furniture are old and so the carpet. Free wifi at the lobby and expensive in the rooms. Outdoor... More

a great place to stay close to the beach and public . Rooms are clean and neat. Great view of the ocean. Helpful staff at reception. Only 1 lift was working. Great value for money. A good place easy to get to theme parks from here by public transportation.

For one night it was perfect. Price $109 for apartment overlooking the ocean shores. The room was clean, the staff were very welcoming and approachable. 5 minute walk to Cavill Avenue. Note that there is a $200 bond to be paid on arrival. Suited us beautifully and we will return for a week in October.

I have used this hotel before, and it represented economical overnight accommodation so close to the beach and ocean, and it offers secure car parking for no charge. Only paid wi fi and no breakfast when we stayed, but thus is not a big problem in Surfer's.

Terrible place! It is old and run down with broken furniture and crappy room. Only one lift works and fits 4 people so can take 30 mins + to get down. For the price it is not worth it even though location and view good. Pay a little extra and get a better hotel!!!!!
