LIKES..The apartments are directly opposite the beach. They are walking distance to Cavill Ave. we stayed in unit 706. DISLIKES...The unit is very old. There was no curtain in the bathroom. The balcony furniture was extremely dirty. The clothes airer was rusted and could not be used. The windows had not be cleaned for a very long time. The cushions... More

An average place to stay with quite small aging rooms. Not spectacular though a good location and somewhat reasonable price, like many others in the area. Service at front desk very mediocre. A little noisy too, despite being on a higher floor.

3rd visit each getting worse. Last stayed in March 2014 into what I was told was a great room with ocean view. Room 812. Great view. Curtains were falling off, tap came off and toilet holder fell off also. The shower frame is riddled with rust and concrete cancer. Very little attempt to maintaining this building. Because I was staying... More

We got a great rate on a basic studio suite, but it was worn out and ratty. After 3 days, we requested a move and they moved us to an updated studio for $10 more a night. This was $10 very well spent. The staff was friendly, and the location is great. The wifi is expensive and the reception was... More

I stayed alone for the 2rd time here and was quite happy with it. I do agree that the renovations didn't do the hotel justice. Yes, most units were renovated but still had their own problems. My recent trip received great service but has had the reception hours trimmed back to general business hours and even less on weekends. My... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to go to the Football at Metricon Stadium. Property is good value for money, nothing fancy, older property. Views from the 11th floor were great. I understand with the location there would be quite a lot of salt spray from the ocean, but windows really need a very good clean. Crockery, glasses etc in poor... More

Expectations were not met. Service was spectacular but rooms were unclean and smelt of smoke. For its price range it is also quite far from cavill ave. (The main street at surfersparadise) Its a 1.5km walk from the hotel to cavill. Pools and gym were small but effective. Overall an average stay due to the rooms which could also definitely... More

Stayed here for just one night to visit family. We had a one bed apartment on the 12th floor overlooking the beach with views to Cooloongatta. A wrap around balcony so views out over the river as well and down onto the pool area. The room was adequate for our needs although very old. The bathroom was a decent size... More

The location is very close to the beach literally 1 to 2 minute walk. The property is a bit dated but very well maintained. The furniture in the room was old but still functional. We got was facing the beach so we got a perfect view from our balcony. It is a self contained unit so you can do cook... More
