Stayed for 5 nights for a conference. Nice and central and very clean. Very helpful staff. Stayed 4 times now for 5 days each year. Bookings and helpfulness have always been their asset and we had numerous changes over a 3 month period for many guests. All ended up fine,

Apartment was everything it said it would be. Super location in Broadbeach. So easy to get places from here. Pool was great fun and kids enjoyed it a lot, no good for swimming when the wind blows though! Great range of movies/ programs on FOXTEL was handy. Had to buy a few small supplies for a whole family to stay... More

Great family accommodation close to the beach. The beach views are amazing. Plenty of local restaurants near by as is the local woolies. The pool on level 4 was heated and a good size, there was a spa on the rooftop. The apartment block was very clean.

Really spacious living rooms and huge balcony. the bedrooms were all lovely and the master was massive. We had balconies on both sides so we had sea views with morning sun and hinterland views with afternoon sun. A real luxury in Queensland. The... More

We booked a 2 bedroom but got lucky and were given a 3 bedroom on the 28th floor with a spectacular view of the beach from the large balcony. The apartment was perfect and it was great to have free parking underneath. The pools are small and I imagine busy in high season. The location is pretty well perfect, close... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights on business . The apartment was very appointed but slightly tired. The location is perfect for restaurants and the beach. Reception hours could be extended and if you bring a car you'll need to find a park outside before you check in. This could be difficult at busy times. That said the... More
