“Our family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

Hotel with a really good location, be it food, the beach, car rental or shopping, is all within walking distance. The rooms are neat & clean with an excellent view of the sea and the coastline. Will be our first choice for my family's next visit.

Great hotel, in a great location, within 1 block of the beach and close to cavill ave. Buffet breakfast has a good variety. Would definately stay again!

this was the 2nd time i stayed in this hotel.
i stayed in a twin room with a friend last year which wasn't a very good experience. the room was old and small yet it's clean, the reception was not friendly. we couldn't get our room after 2pm and we had to wait for about half an hour the staff didn't offer any upgrade or compliments to us. the location was good close to the center of surfers, just 3 streets walk.
very close to the beach. we expected it was a 4 stars hotel but it turned out it's not. i would say i wouldn't stay in this same hotel again.

i came back with my husband last weekend as we had a very great deal for only $99 per night in a studio room including breakfast. i didn't expect too much coz of the previous stay.
we had a very good time unexpectedly, the reception was friendly she let us check in at 11am
the room was much better than the twins, it's bigger and newer looking. there's a mini kitchen which included stove, dishwashing machine, toaster
the bathroom however was the same, it's really small and old.
the buffet breakfast was good except the coffee! it tasted like ashtray.

overall it's a good experience (for the price we paid) and if u expect something more than standard this will not be your choice.

oh i more thing, you need to pay for the parking for $17 a night which was quite rude and very unprofessional.

Dear Kerrie H - thanks for writing about your past stays with us - I am so glad that you found your most recent visit more enjoyable in one of our Studio rooms. It's always great to be able to check-in a little earlier and I am happy that you found the service from the team so friendly. Good that breakfast was also well received although I take your point regarding the coffee served - assuming that this has come from the coffee machine on the buffet I will check this out to ensure that this has been remedied. The parking charge has been in place from some time - I am unsure how you booked with the Hotel however please do accept my apologies if you were not aware of this charge when booking with the Hotel.

Thanks again for staying with us and giving us another go after your disappointing first stay. I hope to welcome you back some time soon.

Kind regards

Our room was large and bright but sadly neglected.The bathroom door was rotting at the bottom while the floor behind the bathroom door was dirty and mouldy. Like many places it appears cleaners concentrate on high traffic areas and neglect the rest because of limited time allowed to do the job.
The continental breakfast delivered to the room was very generous albeit, unimaginative.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Dear Schlepper 1939, thanks for your feedback following your stay with us back in February although sorry for the issues in the room that you have highlighted - no excuse for the standard of the bathroom door & floor behind the door and I will follow through with my Housekeeping Manager accordingly. I am pleased you found the breakfast generous and we will soon be launching a new room service menu which will provide some new options across all meal periods.

Thanks again for your post and I hope to welcome you back to the Hotel at some point in the future.

Kind regards

Ok rooms but the street noise is like every other hotel on the gold coast strip - loud. The price was reasonable and the location ok

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view

Dear Canberra-ites, thanks for posting your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed the location of the Hotel. Sorry you found the room a little noisy - whilst we receive minimal complaints about street noise, your tip regarding booking an Ocean view room is a good idea as they are away from the main street in addition to the great views on offer.

Thanks again and I hope to see you back at the Hotel some time soon.

Kind regards

This hotel was an excellent choice for location and we managed to get a buy 2 nights get 1 free on the price of the rooms.
Very friendly and efficient reception staff and porters, especially with recommendations for restaurants.
Beautiful pool, although a bit too cold to use this stay and sauna and steam room attached to the gym.
Housekeeping was efficient and views from the 13th floor were fab
We did not eat here.
Only criticism the bar seemed to close early....

Room Tip: Higher floor to take advantage of the views..........

Best thing about this hotel was its great location. Just a stone's throw away from Cavill where the main shopping and food areas are located.

Rooms were spacious enough, and quiet too. Kitchen facilities were a definite bonus. Bed was huuuuge and comfy.

The view from our room was not fantastic; we had buildings in front of us blocking the ocean, but we could still see it from our balcony so it wasn't horrible either. We did happen to take a look at the suites on the 20th floor and the view from there was brilliant!

Downside to this place was the lack of free internet. I don't remember how much it was exactly, but it was far more than we were willing to pay.

If you're not willing to pay for their ridiculously priced internet, head over to the coffeshops across the road. Some of them provide free wifi.

Hotel-wise, we paid for two nights and got the third night free, so all in all, it was great value for money.
