This hotel is close to Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise, without all the noise and yahooooo. Awesome rooms, very large, awesome views, and excellent staff and management. Pool is great and I cant wait to go again.... More

Literally a penthouse on every floor. Pristine decore, clean and spacious. 180 degree views and within walking distance to pretty much everything. On the beaches doorstep.....what more could you ask for. Old fashioned kind hearted service made our stay even more so memorable. Thank you Carol and Nick you were amazing!!!

They have definitely guaranteed return visits from us. All the apartments were different in layout and decor and we all enjoyed checking each other's out. We were on level 5 with... More

Our stay at The Penthouses was just perfect. From the initial contact in making the booking with Carol, right through to our departure, the service she provided was faultless. She was always available to provide local advice & assist us with any requests, with a happy, calm, considerate and efficient manner. The location was great, a 15min walk to the... More

I stayed at The Penthouses with my school netball team that I coach in July 2015. We stayed for a total of 8 nights and we were more than impressed upon arrival at both our apartment rooms. We booked two 3 bedroom apartments that were beautifully fitted and had spectacular views of the ocean and the city. I mean full... More

The Penthouse Apartments experience was outstanding. Our 3 bedroom apartment was extremely large, with really good facilities. 2 balconies faced directly onto the beach. There was plenty to do with a swimming pool, spa, games room & the beach all together on the property.

The Penthouses offers one of the best ocean view experiences on the Gold Coast. There's no need to even leave the apartment to experience the crashing surf, the magnificent sunrises, the sun sparkling on the water! Our family of six found the apartment comfortable and spacious. Just some minor maintenance is needed, and extra blankets and pillows would be nice.... More

We just spent an excellent long weekend at The Penthouses for our annual autumn/winter escape to watch the Pies v Suns. This year it coincided with the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival - another excellent excuse for a trip up north. We returned to The Penthouses due to the incredible service we received from Carol and her team last year,... More
