This must be the cheapest private room accommodation on the gold coast. I have stayed at Arrival over the years and have always been happy. The temporary Manager has now moved on..and the new Manager is a relation to the owner, he tells me..he seem very helpful. There are 4 live in cleaners who carry out their duties each day.... More

This place was described as a hotel but it was more like a hostel. i would have enjoyed sleeping in a prison cell more than staying at this piece of wood. The pool was absolutely disgusting it looked like a bath where people would go to wash their dirty feet. It was very disappointing, the positive reviews did not live... More

Honestly the worst I have ever seen. Somewhere between a North Korean prisoner of war camp, a half way house or something from nightmare on elm street. The smell was horrific. The bathroom looked like something out of the 70's but with a lack of quality plumbing as the taps were constantly in a flow. The bed was like sleeping... More

Normally I stay at four star resort style places. Travelled solo so took cheap option. Really better than I expected. Owners friendly. People staying there were friendly in the common tv area. Room was basic - booked single room and got single plus double bed on the top floor. The bed was like what I think I had when I... More

This is more like a halfway house than a hotel. Bare minimum room, think prison. You get nothing but a bed some run down op shop furniture (desk, wardrobe) and that is it, $2.00 charge if you want a towel for your stay. I kid you not.

I recently stayed at the Arrival Accommodation Centre in Southport for nine nights. I booked a single room with a single bed but was given a room with two single beds in it. It's important to note that the Arrival Accommodation is not a hotel or motel, in fact I would not consider it a hostel. It's simply just a... More

This is a fine, safe place to stay but it's not near the beach, or any main attractions in the area, so it's really just a place to sleep. You can walk around the area, but it's not extremely well-lit at night, if that concerns you. Staff is nice, the rooms were a bit bare but clean, with plenty of... More

Unhygienic all I can say. Trouble just to ask for a god damn new pillow case, lady brought it back a week later. Bed bugs ravaged my body at night rudeness from female manager (larger lady, don't even go to ask for a thing) disgusting really.
