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.
