This was a November 2013 experience to forget. My booking was mixed up and reception staff where reluctant to resolve problems created by their booking system. The room had not been properly cleaned and apart from probably needing a fresh paint job, there were still items apparently left behind by previous guests. Inquiries I later made, revealed problems here since... More

Beds old and uncomfortable. Room smelt of old cigarette smoke. Have paid for 2 nights but we will not stay the second night... More

We stayed here in early November. When we arrived there was a confusion on the room that was booked, we wanted ground floor and they had us on the 3rd. We were then allocated another room and when we took our luggage noticed that there was still things in the room. We were then given another room which was to... More

Our studio upgrade gave us excellent cooking utensils, airconditioning, towels and other essentials. Sure it could have been cleaner but I wasn't fussy and will definitely come back again if possible.

We recently had a Christmas function on the Gold Coast so were all accommodated at the Harbour Side Resort in Labrador. Giving it a 2 star rating is generous, but on the other hand it wasn't dreadful, just extremely ordinary and lacking in any imagination. We were fortunately allocated a one bedroom apartment so can't comment on the studio rooms.... More

By the website we thought we were going to have a beautiful stay. But it was so not what we thought. The lack of understanding with the management was confusing. We got the wrong room, then got moved. Walking up the stairway, it was filthy! The balcony and the grounds looked like they hadn't been cleaned for weeks. I was... More

I was quite nervous as to how I would find my room after reading other reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and tidy. The bathroom was clean as well. The linen and towels were clean. I had a ground floor room which was good. I did have to go back to reception to get the plastic strip... More

We booked this holiday at a shopping centre promotion. It sounded great and we chose to stay at the Harbour Side Resort. We booked for a 2 bedroom apartment for the 3 of us (husband, myself and 35 year old daughter. When we arrived there was only a 1 bedroom booked. We managed to get a 2 bedroom apartment for... More
