“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

We spend 8 nights at the Viscount and had a wonderfull time. We were in Apartment 9, must have been recently renovated as the unit was in a very good condition. The facilities were very clean and well looked after. The location was superb and right on the beach. We had a minor issue when the fridge stopped working but the management was very helpfull and we had another fridge within 30minutes-AND THIS WAS AFTER HOURS!!!!!!

We had a awesome time and will defintely call again!

Room Tip: Apartment 9!!

Just luv this place, 2nd visit and won't be our last..Spacious apartments, fantastic ocean front views, like being on the sand,south side also offers you active views (apart from the rolling surf) with all the sportys out on their fitness runs, cycling, and families on their early and evening strolls along the esplanade.. we walked along the beach to the night markets in surfers..had booked for one week and ended up two??..Marion & David are lovely hosts, they went away and Maureen took over the helpful reins.Irene took my initial booking and I met her last time, friendly, bubbly lady. My only downside this visit was that this apartment No:10 (I had been forewarned, it was not like my last one) this one in great need of refurbishment, tired furnishings and appliances totally need replacing as some did not work?? washer,dryer,vacuum?? Spring poked my bum on the couch. It's not about the management, they can only do so much, and they are terrific, It would be a justice if the owner goes to the expense of modernizing this apartment as majority have updated their apartments for guests comforts and conveniences, ensuring that our same dollar can buy the same beautiful memorable holiday experience :-) and that we want to come again and stay in their apartments..Wait there was a plus side (beside the views i got to enjoy) we had the best sleeps..The beds were the most comfy, I have to add..ten out of ten for the beds in apt 10? Tip: call and chat when booking, they don't bite, ask for the best apt available..not like me left it till the last and got the dregss..hehe ..Still a happy camper. As much as i would like to give an excellent, i need to be fair and give a very good cos...Love the Viscount..can't wait to come back, try it..i'm sure you'll love it too..and so central to everything,.yet peaceful

A few days ago we returned home from a wonderful week's stay at Viscount Towers. We stayed in apartment 28 which is on level 9, the only thing above us was the rooftop spa and BBQ area. Marion had recommended this apartment for us after I had spoken to her on the phone about our holiday "needs" and her recommendation could not have been any more spot on. Apartment 28 is a beautifully renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with gorgeous ocean views. It was very well equipped with all self-catering needs.

Viscount Towers itself is in a superb location. It is literally beachfront. No need to even walk across a road to the beach which is always fabulous but for us, with two very small children, it was perfect. The pool has a lovely ambience as it too is practically beachfront which means you can enjoy the sound of those crashing waves as you relax in the pool.

One of my favourite things about the location of this property is that it really is half way between Broadbeach and Surfers. I walked to both abroad each and Surfers a few times during our stay and they were easy and lovely walks. I must note, it is not a 5 minute walk...more like a 10 minute walk to Broadbeach and about 15 to Surfers but that's at a leisurely stroll and let's face it, on holidays, that's perfect!

Marion and David were on holidays during our stay but they had everything perfectly organised for our arrival and we were very well looked after during our stay. On the morning of our departure, our 4 month old little girl decided that she was going to sleep longer than usual. This meant that we would've had to wake her up to meet the check out time of 10am. A quick visit by my husband down to Reception and we were told it wa no trouble for us to stay an extra half an hour. So kind!

All in all, it really was a fabulous holiday. Our four year old had such a great time that she cried when we had to leave. Needless to say, we are already looking at dates for a return visit.

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms. Clean. Nice furniture. Plenty of kitchen utensils. Great beach views. Roomy. The views from the roof top spa and 2 bbq areas are fantastic. Also the pool is virtually on the beach with glass fence to enjoy the beach view. There is a cafe, bottle shop and bowling club just down the road but it's a fair walk to Surfers or Broadbeach. Overall, a great place to stay.

Viscount tower chicked all the boxes: location, confort, outstanding customer service by the managers Marion & David, beautiful facilities and great atmosphere. We first book 5 days and kept extending our stay as it was just faboulous.
We are from Brisbane and always at GC for the weekend or long holidays and have stayed in many many units and so far Viscount is on our top choices.
Can't wait to book again!!

Room Tip: The tower has two side so in one you will overlook surfers paradise and the other you will overlook...

We are a business couple who travel extensively and have high expectations. Viscount Towers has one of the best apartments that we have stayed in. Clean, spacious, well equipped and a fantastic view. We highly recommend apartment 9 and we will return in the future. Tania and Cameron

A very big thank you for a such a beautiful lodging, and which is also strategically located. Viscount trully enhanced our memorable holiday experience to Gold Coast, which by the way is our first trip to GC, and we hope to make many more trips there in the near future, as GC is a truly a beautiful holiday destination, and Viscount will definitely be our lodging of choice. I can see why you guys keep continuously winning the Tripadvisor award.
