“Fantastic Resort and Excellent Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We had 7 nights at Markham Court in April. There were 2 adults and 3 adult children. We rented a 3 bedroom apartment No 55. It was absolutely perfect with plenty of room for us all and everything that you would need. The only item missing was a hairdryer. It was a home away from home. The pool area was fantastic and the grounds kept immaculate. You could not get a better location with a 2 minute walk down to the Oasis centre where there was the supermarket and cafes and restaurants galore. The adult children loved the Gelato shop which was their treat each night and was only a 2 minute walk. The beach was only two blocks away and was easy accessible down a walkway that took you straight onto the beach. The morning walk along the walkway along the beach was magic and a great way to start the day. It was a 20 minute walk to Pacific Fair and Draculas. The reception staff were lovely and very helpful, we booked tickets for Wet n WIld and the Australian Outdoor Spectacular show ( totally recommend this show it's truly amazing) through them. Markham Court is a fantastic place to stay and totally worth every cent and it was not an expensive place to stay. Would recommend it to anybody wanting a fantastic holiday on the Gold Coast. Thank you Markham Court we hope to be back one day. :-)

We stayed at Markham Court for a month in Feb. awaiting the arrival of our shipment from NZ. We were moving permanently to the Gold Coast and I can't begin to tell you what a fantastic place Markham was. Within walking distance to the beach and all amenities, shopping centre etc. and the 2 bed apartment was a home away from home with everything provided for.
The highlight of our time there was the lovely welcome we got from the managers Lynn and Wilf as they helped with our transition to a new country and we are very grateful to them. Also, very good value for money for our extended stay. Highly recommended

Hey we stayed here in feb this year was our first time staying here with my mate and his son, staying here was great because we were 2 blocks from beach front and 3 min walk to main street, not far from anything really but far enough to miss the hussel and bussel. I would recommend for familys or couples or even couple of mates. great staff very helpful.

Stayed for 3 nights while on a conference at the convention centre. Great location, easy to walk to a Woolworths, restaurants and cafes and the convention centre. We had a two bedroom apartment which had a spacious living area which would be good with small children. Modern and clean look was throughout the apartment. Free secure parking was great. Reception was unattended on check in and check out, so we had to wait to check in but were able to use the key drop on check out. Overall, a good stay

Many thanks for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our Resort and we thank you for taking time to do this review. We noticed your comments about the reception being unattended. The office opens at 8.00 am and closes at 5.00 pm weekdays but we have an after hour service so guests can check in 24 hours a day. Guests pick up the phone at reception. The person they speak to will, after an identity check give them the code of the safe where they will find the Key to their Unit and with all the instructions necessary. We find that this system works really well. The next day those guests who checked in late can come to reception during office hours and complete the registration, pick up extra keys, ask questions etc..

Our family of 6 stayed in one of the 3 bedroom apartments for 3 nights in January this year, we normally stay at another place close to Markham but after reading the reports and seeing the price was a lil cheaper we decided to give it a go. Our apartment was a split level apartment on the top levels facing Surf parade, it was clean and modern inside with everything we needed for our stay; tv, kitchenette, washing machine and a big fridge. The two rooms downstairs had 2 single beds each and the main upstairs had a queen bed with an ensuite, our room had a great spa inside which we put to good use. The location of the apartments are great, just down the road from broadbeach resteraunts and a 10min bus ride to surfers. The only issue we had was a few hours after we left i received a call from the manager telling me that the cleaners had noticed some damage to a soap dish in the downstairs bathroom and was asking me if we had noticed it. As my teenage sons were using that bathroom i asked them and they told me they didnt notice it and definately didnt cause it. My sons arent the kind to lie to me and i told this to the manager who said she would call the lady who was staying before us who was staying there for a hens party. Of course the lady said she had no idea about the damage so we were left with the bill, which i ended up paying half of. I then had to spend the rest of our trip apologising to my wife for grilling our kids and for paying for damage that wasnt ours, that kind of ruined it for me and would effect my decision of staying there again. At least my kids know to check everything on arrival now.......

Many thanks for your feedback on your recent stay at our resort. We are sorry to hear that the broken soap dish has spoilt it for you. The Units in our resort are independently owned and we look after the Units. All Units are checked before guests checked in and checked again on departure by Management and by the cleaners. Whilst we understand that these matters are very delicate we are responsible for any damages caused to the Units. In this occasion we agreed with you to go 50/50 on the cost.
The group who was in the Unit before you checked in was not a hen party but a group who gather at our Resort on a regular basis.

We stayed at markham court for two weeks in December. We were traveling with 3 children, 4 adults. The room we was given was on the second floor and had 3 bedrooms. The bedrooms were of a good size as was the kitchen and living area.
The pool and BBQ area was great for the kids and a lunch time sizzle.
Markham court is only a five minute walk to shops,restaurants,the beach and a fabulous kids park.

The only down side for us was the stairs as we had three children, but there are apartments on the ground floors

All in all we had a great stay at Markam Court and would go back again

Many thanks for your feedback on your recent stay with us. Our three Bedroom Units are very large indeed and are perfect for families with kids. We will always offer good value for money and give good customer service. Our heated Pool and Spa and the BBQ area's are very popular with our guest. Our Resort is a three Storey walk up but most people who stay with us seem to enjoy this to the high rise resorts with lifts. Hope to see you back again in the near future.
