“Unfortunate Review for Budds Beach Apartments”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2009

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting my partner who was away on Business down the Gold Coast. We decided to stay in Surfers as my partners hotel was at Varsity lakes. The Budds Beach Apartments have seen better days from what I saw in the inhouse brochure. My check in was stated at 2.00pm however that had not finished servicing the room until 2.30. The reception was of no help and was closed apon my check in. There was one friendly staff member who was very helpful however all the others left a sour taste in my mouth. Another important factor was that the bond for the room took 9 days to refund which was only due to my constant emails and telephone calls. Reception was very tardy and you could never get anyone on the after hours phone.

The rooms were pretty basic and really in need of more attention. The bathroom was quite nice however towls and toiletries could have been more plentiful. There was a pool and BBQ area however the hotels other guests seemed to be a bit shady and like to yahoo around the pool. This was also a non smoking hotel however I did not find this out until I had arrived.

Accommodation ok, basic ......
the vertical blind in the bedroom was broken and all the taps & toilet leaked! Seeing that Queensland was on severe water restrictions, thought this was very irresponsible

We stayed at the Budds Beach Apartments for the Indy 300, and we were only a street back from the race track. The great thing was we were less than 10 minutes walk from all the party atmosphere of the centre of Surfers Paradise, but when we got back it was far enough away to be nice and quiet. Smaller apartment, but good facilities.
