Inside we stayed in the one bedroom... More

Was admittedly a little sceptical of some of the reviews of this place but will say now that it was above and beyond my expectations! Upon arrival (1 hour before check in) we were given the keys to one of the 2 apartments we had booked. Very smooth, friendly and welcoming check in with the property managers. Proceeded to the...

I booked a one bedroom Premium room overlooking the pool and stayed for 5 nights with kids. If you are researching places to stay on the Gold Coast, stop now cause our room was perfect and reasonably priced. It's located half way between Broadbeach (supermarkets, good coffee, 3 hour free parking at Oasis Mall) and Surfers, and about 2 minutes... More

I booked the hotel for 5 nights. On the arrival at 13:45 whatever seemed to be the reception was completely shut and only the after hours phone was working(mind you the website tells you that check in is after 2:00). We waited for 20 mins for anyone to bother coming out and when the manager did come out his first... More

Reviews of this nature are disappointing and we are sorry that our hotel did not meet your expectations. The pictures on the website are true and do depict the real vision of the hotel but from the very start not having money on a card and then wanting to see a room is general practice for guests that generally want...

My daughter and I stayed for a weekend, 2 nights. We arrived around 1pm Saturday after reception had closed but found check in very easy after calling the after-hours number. Our keys were waiting in a security box. The apartment had everything we needed and was tidy and spacious. Big bathroom, lovely white thick towels. Even had extra pillows, dishwasher,... More

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by manager and his son. Our apartment was lovely and very clean. We had booked for 7 nights but ended up staying for 11 as we are on holiday visas from the UK and simply didn't want to leave! The pool was lovely and warm and the spa was heaven! The resort was quiet... More

We had a lovely stay. Stayed for 10 nights. Location good walking distance to shops, restaurants etc. Rooms were clean. Bathroom had a bit of mould on the shower. Our fridge kept freezing everything. Self contained units. I feel the price we paid was okay but should have included change of towels and include price for rented pool towels. Good... More

Rooms not really clean and furniture are old. Water leaking somewhere in our room and some area of the carpet was soaking wet. Everything is money for this hotel, very expensive wifi, toilet paper roll, detergent etc. Room sound proof is not good, can hear clearly the car on the main street during midnight.Overall, is not really a good stay...
