Wow, in this day and age and with the thousands of hotel rooms in Surfers Paradise you would think that this hotel would try, even just a little bit, to improve but No. I always read the Trip Advisor reviews on a place Im about to stay in and most of the time Ill give the place a go and... More

On arrival, found room closed up and smelling very strongly of cigarette smoke (and this was a non-smoking room booking!). Pillows and bed linen also smelled and had stains. Toilet cistern leaked and was constantly refilling. Bathroom blinds were broken so neighbouring units could see in to room. Towels weren't supplied. TV didn't work. Couch fabric was all torn.

I booked a room in this place on-line several weeks before travelling. I was given the standard advice that check-in was available after 2pm. I was involved in some activities through the morning and early afternoon and was literally just on my way to Harbour Side when they called to say that there was a problem with my room and... More

A funny name for some rumes in a unit complex on a busy highway opposite a major building site. Whilst value was ok it is far from a ‘Resort’ and would be better described as a small flat in a block of many without any further facilities.

Okay for the price, but the salesman lied about the location. we didn't stay in the resort much so it catered our needs a place to crash for the night. The staff were friendly and provided advise were to get a good cheap feed. A bit far from the beach though
