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

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 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

I really enjoyed the stay, but there were a few things which could have made it even better. Just little things like the heavy doors, which were quite loud when closed - you could hear the neighbours a mile off!!
