Absolutely the worst place ever. On arrival only one lift working and the other taking 50 minutes of going up and down continuously before getting to our room. It even stopped completely at one stage. Maintenance was with us and said it's possible that the whole hotel may have to close if lift didn't start back up. Not what you... More

We booked online and missed the reviews-until after I booked!! I have mixed opinions about the hotel and service. The service was always friendly and helpful, wasn't too keen on the $200 deposit. A bit excessive I thought? The room was nothing like we imagined on the pictures and it was very unclean. The curtains were filthy, the chairs stained... More

Before booking International Beach Resort, I read a lot of reviews about it. Many people offered negative ones. But I didn't need to stayed at a luxuries hotel and I just hoped the hotel would be in a convenience area, I made up my mind to book International Beach Resort for two nights. Before starting my journey, I asked the... More

If you like staying in a hotel that was built 100 years ago that is literally falling to pieces, here is the place to be. Only one lift operational (servicing 22 floors, max 6 persons) and the one that was working was in poor shape. Our lovely neighbours thought it would be a great idea to throw a party in... More

Great location, right opposite the beach at Surfers. The rooms are excellent for the rate paid. This is the best hotel in the location and the rate is unbelievable! The hotel staff are happy to call cabs, provide printed directions, call and book reservations, anything you require. The hot tub was amazing at night and the pool so clean and... More

Booked into the resort for four nights in February 2015 and when arrived around 2pm was advised apartment wasn't ready...eventually got into apartment around 3.45. Apartment was clean but had an air of neglect about it. Basic cooking equipment provided, cook top, microwave, kettle, toaster and some crockery and cutlery. Bed comfortable and adequate. Lounge had stains on it and... More

The hotel is in a good location. The beach, tram, bus service, restaurants and nightlife are within a 1.5 km radius. The hotel overlooks Surfers Paradise beach which is a magnificent view. The rooms are clean and service is good. Being a self service apartment they do have extra charges for services called for. Rules such as extra charges levied... More

The place needs major work. Spa was filthy. The lifts were a nightmare with overload issues. Would only carry 2 people at times. The wait to get back to room was ridiculous. Sauna not working. BBQ out of order. Rooms were OK but in need of an update. Would never book here again especially in peak season. Not worth the... More
