Excellent central Gold Coast location , stone throw from the Pacific Fair shopping complex , clean air conditioned rooms with balconies, secure below ground parking , below ground pool, helpful staff and a fitness room containing a rowing machine , treadmill and exercise bike, but there are no elevators so possibaly not the best choice for elderly or infirm

Maybe its the norm for apartments in the area (and have since heard other similar stories) but providing (as an example) just one roll of toilet paper for a 5 night stay and supply our own after that?
