Had the unfortunate experience of staying in this dodgy joint recently. It was the height of summer and 25 degrees at midnight. Arrived back at the room after dinner etc and the air conditioner would not work. Could only open all windows to get cross flow .....neighbours (permanent tenants) below smoking non stop on their junk filled balcony....Called the reception... More

My husband and I stayed at this place for 5days. You get what you pay for as far as the apartment goes. There was no clothes dryer so I had to hang the washing out, and and to buy pegs as well.Towels were hard to dry and their web site stated that the apartment was equipped with washing machine and...

I booked a room weeks ago and the hotel confirmed the room and took my payment in full. I then find out 1 week out from my work trip that my room is not available as it is booked out. I try to call the hotel 3 times during business hours and after waiting many minutes the phone just cut... More

Raffles Royal is definitely not a 5 star hotel, if you are looking for luxury go elsewhere. However the 2 bedroom apartment was a good place to stay for my friends and I for just a night. It was close to everything we needed. The room was cold, even thought it didn't have any air-con vent, so it made the... More

Pubic hair, body fluids and bugs in bed. Rang to talk to manager or for some clean sheets but was refused. Even after arguing that it should be entitled to a degree of hygiene. Manager refused to even talk to me. I had to buy my own sheets for my family. If you want to get an STD without sleeping... More

Very bad,the shower screen was damaged, they were cockroach, worst of all the sofa in the lounge room was terrible and uncomfortable, clothes line stand was broken ( hurt my finger) and very dirty balcony. I don't recommend for anyone might as well pay $50 or $100 extra for a better stay.

I and my wife stayed at the Raffles Royale for nearly three weeks in December. After arriving at Brisbane airport we took the train and taxi to our accommodation. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the manager who gave us a low down on the hotel and showed us how to get our bearings. Our room was very commodious... More

Disgusting apartment. My family and O decided to stay for Easter in Goldcoast away from the city, for $150 a night. Molds around the house, broken aircon, stained/dirty carpet and pillows, beds are uncomfortable. The location is the only good thing about this apartment. This is my opinion and experience it varies from person to person.
