I caught the train there as i didn't want the fuss of driving while on holiday, and there's a bus outside that goes to Surfers and one at the end of... More

Throughout the booking process and my stay all staff I dealt with were kind, helpful and very professional and you really felt that nothing was too much trouble. Our room on the fourth floor was spotlessly clean and very modern with quality fixtures and fittings. We had an undercover carpark although we didn't need to drive much as Tedder Avenue... More

Stayed here in October 2013 - great place to stay, quiet and away from busy Surfers Paradise but still close enough to visit all the attractiobns. Staff, especially Racheal were extremely professional and offered exceptional customer service from assisting with car rentals, arranging hotel transfers from airport and booking theme park tickets. Accommodation was beautiful, we stayed in the penthouse... More

Stayed in a one bedroom for three nights. The apartment was suitable but could do with an update. There fridge needs to be replaced as there was rust/mould around the handle and you were kind of put off every time you went to open the door.
