We really enjoyed our stay at Horizons. Room was spacious, comfortable and great value for money. The managers were so kind and helpful, friendly, caring and happy. It is a great location, short walk to delicious food and beaches. Would definitely return.

The place is near to sea world so very easy for us to travel up and down gold coast from there. The room condition is ok . Just the tea pot rusted. Hope next time replace a new one for our next visit.

Was an amazing stay! Room was lovely and the owner was even lovelier! The pool was very nice and we Felt really welcome, it was so close to the beach and shops! Would defiantly stay again, for another occasion or even just for a little holiday.

A clean tidy place, with friendly owners that will do anything for you! Tucked back in, it was relatively quiet and about 2 blocks from the beach. We rented bikes to get around to see the beaches. Excellent way to see the gold coast!

My partner and I stayed at Horizons for one night after booking through their website (which was cheaper than any other offers online). The receptionist was incredibly friendly; the room was much, much larger than we expected. Recently renovated, modern and clean. It's a short walk to the beach and cafes, a 20 minute bus ride to Surfers Paradise. We...

How we made our reservation: We made our booking through the Wotif website. On arrival at the motel reception: When we arrived this motel in the mid afternoon we had trouble raising any reception staff to check us in. After some time we were met by the owners son who had no idea at all as to where our booking...

The room is very basic but it not a problem if you only need a bed. The important factors are that the rooms are clean, comfortable bed, quiet and a good location. Within two blocks there are a number of restaurants, bars and a convenient store.

Accommodation was basic but clean. Excellent value for the price. Service very friendly! Not a room you'd spend a lot of time in but would recommend as a base to explore the Gold Coast from. Easy to get around but away from the craziness of surfers.

Last minute booking, approx $160 for one night when most were booked out. Was pleasantly surprised with lowered expectations. It was clean and had everything we needed, which was mainly just a bed. But had tea and coffee and even a couple of chocolates. Didn't try the pool, but beach was a short walk away. Some restaurants/cafes in walking distance....

This is an older motel well located in Mermaid beach. Only 2 blocks back from the water and with plenty of shops, resturants and bars close by, this place ticked boxs for me. The property has everything we needed for a comfy stay of 3 nights and Benjimin was a perfect host. I would gladly stay here again as it...
