Stayed at Viscount Towers in March for a much looked forward to re union/ get together with friends. Called in a day early (as I was staying in another unit on the coast for a couple of days) to see what time we could check in, and I was told we could probably have the unit from around 12 MD....

We have stayed at the Viscount Towers on several occasions and each time we have had a fantastic holiday. The location couldn't be better, walk out the back door and you are on the beach! The location is about half way between Cavell Mall and Broad Beach and both are within easy walking distance, our 4 year had no problems.... More

We stayed for 5 days in a 3 bedroom apartment on 2nd floor. The apartment was spacious, clean, well set out for 6 adults and had fantastic views of the ocean. Having direct access to the beach was a definate plus. The rooftop BBQ and Spa area was a great venue and was definately a draw card for us. The... More

This unit complex is very old and it definatley shows it age. Maybe the other apartments may be ok but ours was out date and unclean. Very poor condition. Location was the only good thing about our stay, just a walk to the beach.

We stayed in apartment number 4 with 4 teenagers, for 10 days over Christmas 2009. The position of the apartments was just FABULOUS. :), although we were on the 1st floor, it was noisey (something we are not used to). The apartment was still being cleaned after 3pm although check in was from 2pm. (and we expressly told them we... More

The Managers can only speculate that this guest is being mischievous toward our establishment. Guests should surely be allowed to make comment once, otherwise the review... More

We booked and stayed here over the Xmas New Year period. Well let me first say the view is amazing the best on the coast l would suggest. Totally uninterrupted ocean view. But the apartment was a run down and grubby horror. We were advised at booking it was cheaper as it was not refurbished and was only 3.5 star.... More

Just returned from my annual stay at Viscount. As usual it was a break with my aussie relatives after a week and a half of business travel and it was just perfect. Just a couple of hours looking at that view and listening to the surf was enough to totally unwind. The incredible rain that nearly washed away the Gold... More

We stayed at the Viscount Towers for four wonderful nights in mid January 2010. Hosts Marion and David made us feel extremely welcome on our arrival and were able to provide excellent advice on local activities, shopping and restaurants. When apartments say they are 'beach front' some are actually across a road or have obstructed views of the beach....this is... More

I agree with some of the other reviewers regarding the parking - we parked out on the street and had no problem. Also, the building is somewhat dated and does not have air conditioning, but these were not important considerations for us. What really mattered to our family was cleanliness, comfort and location and, on all of three criteria, the... More
