“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 11 nights in May in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor
The apartment was very spacious a little dated but fantastic for our family stay
The hosts were wonderful always helpful with any questions and offered great advice on places to go. The views were great from the balcony.
The only negative was the car parking we were lucky to have a small car but if you had a large car it's hard to navigate around the car parks very tight corners.
Roof top was just amazing so well maintained. The weather was a little cold to use the pool but it looked amazing
Would highly recommend especially to families.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with family

We have stayed a couple of times at this property and it is always wonderful. clean and neat units. Spectacular views and a general feeling of relaxation. Booking and check in are so easy with the wonderfully helpful Managers. Great for families and couples. The location is perfect, walking distance to so many areas. It is a true holiday when you can park the car and not use it for a few days.

Room Tip: All rooms have some view so it depends on what price you want to pay.

Stayed recently with a seniors sporting team, 19 in total, and had 4 rooms booked for five nights. Great accommodation right on the beach, shopping facilities close and handy and two great hosts who waited hand and foot on the team. Will be sure and book to stay at the Viscount Towers on the Beach at future carnivals.

Room Tip: All units overlook the ocean. We had a combination of three and two bedroom units.

My family of 5 recently stayed at Beachfront Viscount for 2 weeks over Easter and the school holidays. The views were spectacular from our 9th floor apartment and the rooftop spa and bbq area was great for family dinners. I love how perfectly clean and well kept our apartment was. It was spacious and just what I needed with 3 girls. Loved the pool area and being right on the beach. It was a short stroll to Broadbeach and a little further to Surfers but over all I found it very close to shops and restaurants. I even had a light bulb blow while we stayed and the staff were great about getting it fixed as quick as they could. Well done to Marion, David and their staff who I found to be friendly and very helpful during our stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the future in fact we have just decided we will be booking our next stay soon and are bringing friends with us too.

Room Tip: My only tip is pick Beachfront Viscount for your next holiday because I think its a step above a lot...

We recently stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment on the 7th floor looking south. Views were spectacular, and with 3 small children it was just brilliant to be able to walk straight out onto the beach from the front of the complex. Pool area was lovely and clean and spa and BBQ's the same. Apartment was clean and practical, a bit dated but homely. Broadbeach playground and shops just a little too far for our 2 x 4 year olds and 5 year old to walk there and back but by next year I think we'll be fine. Hosts just lovely people!! We'll be back!

We have now experienced our third stay at this property, & hopefully more to come.
Stayed on 2nd floor Surfers Paradise side this time.
I do prefer higher up and on the Gold Coast side, but this was still good.
Kitchen dated and not very functional, but is to be upgraded soon.
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, very comfy beds and great showers.
Well equipped.
Wi Fi way too expensive & couldnt connect anyway, but a trip to Mc Donalds wasnt too much of a hassle!!
Great location right on the beach with a lovely pool area and rooftop BBQ and Spa.
Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Undercover carparking free and an experience in itself with some slick manouvering required in some spaces.
Hosts very helpful- thanks for the bubbles we received as repeat stayers.
Would recommend to all.

Room Tip: I prefer Gold Coast side, but all have views of the beach. :)

My family and I stayed at Viscount Towers recently for a 10 day vacation in April 2014.
Very nice 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the beachfront on the 6th floor.
Spacious living/dining area and functional kitchen.
The oven was a bit tricky to use and even though we found manuals for every other appliance in the apartment we could not find one for the oven!.
Figured it out eventually.
Comfortable double bed in main bedroom and 2 single beds in 2nd bedroom.
The view from the balcony was amazing!
We even saw a whale one morning and many dolphins swimming past.
My hubby and son used the rooftop spa as well.
And just to be able to walk out from the pool area straight onto the beach was an absolute bonus.
The closest patrolled beach is about 200 metres north from the apartments.
Free underground parking was a bonus but as previously mentioned, quite a lot of to-ing and fro-ing to get our medium rental car into its space :) Thank goodness for power steering :)
The apartments are located in a quiet area north of the main shopping and restaurants of Broadbeach.
There is a small café/restaurant and a bottle shop nearby.
And of course Pacific Fair is a short drive away.
The managers and staff were friendly and approachable.
This was our first visit to the Gold Coast in many years and thanks for our stay at Viscount we can't wait to get back!

Room Tip: Request a room 6th floor and up.
