When arrived told $200 security deposit was required on top of pay in full the room charge. For price good enough just to sleep noisy rooms no room service offered. We weren't even provided toilet paper and when rang reception were told to go use public toilets as reception has just closed at 6pm. We called reception the next morning... More

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!!!!!

Arrived at the hotel with both lifts not working and no way to get to our room (1 BR apartment with air-conditioning only in the living room). We were told that the lifts would “hopefully” be working by late afternoon. The only saving grace was that the hotel is right across the beach and a 5 – 10 minute walk... More

Was not impressed by the standard of the room. If you want real BUDGET accommodation then this is the place to stay. We only stayed one night and that was enough. The pressure of the shower was a trickle of water, if someone used the cold water at the same time the temperature was ice cold, and if the toilet... More

I love this hotel! It's a little dated (the decor) but the location is perfect! Right on the beach, and only a few blocks to surfers paradise main cbd. It also offers free parking! The hotel staff are friendly and the rooms are spacious. This is our first choice when on the Gold Coast.... And we always ask for the... More

Old hotel, needs updating desperately, not the worst I've stayed in but wouldn't stay there again. Best things about it were the location opposite the beach and close to shops and restaurants and the airconditioning worked well. We had a beachfront room with a balcony. The beds were awful, the lounge was old and grubby. There was a kitchen with... More
