Have stayed at this property 5 times at least in past 20 years but age is starting to tell. More so than this, the mattress (room 32) was like it had been found on a dumpster ! Horrible ! Also, the back packers in the properties over the road tend to party very late. I think this is the last... More

Booked 3 days prior on a spontaneous whim with some friends, over the ANZAC long weekend as well. Pricing was great, amazing location (about 10 mins stroll from Cavill Ave) and a clean, spacious apartment. We asked for late checkout at the 11th hour and there was no problem and no extra charge. So appreciative! If you're after a decent... More

Me and my workmate stayed days in a 2 bedroom unit for 10 days. No room service at all. We ended up washing the beddings ourselves in such a busy time. Location is good. Walking distance to Woolies, Coles, beach and Surfers Paradise town centre.

Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which had a really strong odour. We had to open all the windows and doors, and occasionally run out of the apartment to have some fresh air. Since our accommodation was right opposite a backpacker's resort, it was hard to fall asleep as there was screaming and booming music. The use of... More
