“Great day out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Had a day at the races today and was great fun. Wouldn't recommend functions in the dome as the service is very poor but highly suggest putting on some comfortable casual clothes and hanging around the main bar, food and bookies area as much better fun.

“Day at the races”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The racecourse was nothing out of the ordinary, reminded me of country Victoria racetracks. Although every was in easy distance.
By staying at Paradise Isles got free entry into the track.

“Great food and fun even though there was no horses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Just our luck the races were abandoned, we had lunch already organised in the Skyline Restaurant and didn't want to cancel so we went anway even though the staff said we could change our booking.
Great food, service, still had a fun time even though there were no horses racing on track
They are in the middle of renovations at the moment, so be patient, it will look great once they finish.

“Great Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

MAGIC MILLIONS RACE DAY Great day out!! We got tickets for The Legends of the Turf Room...great views of the finishing line, TV at the end of table, good service once organised & lovely food. Only draw backs were - to many patrons allowed in making it very hard to get around & AIR-CONDITIONING could not cope at all with that many people in one area.

“Racing in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Love Love Love the GCTC!!! Skyline Restaurant is absolutely fantastic. The food is bordering on 6 Star and the service is unbelievable. Service is really lacking on the Gold Coast so a day of racing in paradise at the Skyline Restaurant restores your confidence in hospitality. The staff were not obtuse but were plentiful and attentive. Could not fault any of them, they could not do enough for us and they had impeccable manners whilst also sharing a joke. Yes the air con was appalling but I'm sure they will get that replaced before the renovations, won't you GCTC!! Lol
