Our stay was Fabulous! My wife booked the "Premium Package" thorough Wotif as a surpise kid free getaway. We had vlate parking on express checkin, stayon on the top 20th floor with Executive Lounge. A bottle of Champaign delivered to our room. It included Canapes and drinks betwnne 6-pm and a lovely choice of cold and hot cooked breakfast the next morning. We had dinner in the tempanyaki resturant across the road which was fun.
The staff were super frinedly and helpfull, the hotel & room was immaculate and fresh, comfy King bed and the "Wotif Premium Package" was fanatastic, great value and exactly what we needed! I can totallly reccomend the Hotel, very quite and central. We will return again! Thank You Watermark for a great Experience!

Room Tip: Go with the "Wotif Premium Exec Floor Package"

As one of the few business travellers with the misfortune of visiting the Gold Coast during Schoolies week, the Watermark is a quiet relief in the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise. Clean, relatively modern, clientele mostly Asian tour groups and business travellers. Central but still quiet, and smooth service overall. Overall I'm satisfied.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on higher floors to get some ocean views.

My partner & I stayed in a Deluxe King Room, on the 20th floor. Upon arrival the concierge/valet were welcoming & remembered us! :) Walking into the hotel, it smelt beautiful, it was bright, immaculately clean & the staff were all smiling. It definitely oozed that holiday/hotel feeling!

The room was perfect! Clean,quiet, and beautiful furnishings. The bed was amazing & I wish I could have taken it home! So comfortable & new. Overall we loved the room,the people & the service. The bathroom is lovely & the little soaps, lotions etc smelt great!

I recommend The Watermark hotel for anyone/couple who would enjoy a luxurious, welcoming & relaxed stay. Ps the pool is beautiful & as we attended the Breast Cancer foundation ball elsewhere, the Elixir Hair Salon downstairs did and amazing job with my hair! A+++

Thank you!

Room Tip: "Definitely get the Buffet Breakfast @ the Waves Restaurant"

We stayed at the Watermark for one night in Room 1701. The ocean view was nice (through the buildings). NB the hotel rooms do not have balconies. Our room was very quiet with no traffic noise and away from the lift. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable.

Check in, and out, was very quick and efficient.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't very good so we didn't make use of the pool areas but they looked nice.

We found the location was central to Surfers but out of the hustle and bustle and away from the noise of nightclubs, just a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops and opposite the Q1 (which is worth a visit to the top).

The breakfast buffet was good and catered for all tastes, although the food wasn't replenished as quickly as it could have been.

Room Tip: Room 1701 had a good ocean view, was quiet - away from lifts with no traffic noise. I think the higher the floor, the better the view.

My family spent 2 nights at this establishment. As a 4.5 star property it lived up to this rating. Rooms were comfortable, and had all you needed. Mini bar was not stocked, but able to get anything via room service, or go to the bar, personally a great idea if you don't have a large budget so you don't get caught spending on unneeded items. Staff were great, we arrived very early, and even though our room wasn't ready, they managed to find something for us, (great as they were booked out). The location was very good, just a stroll to Cavil Ave, and same to the beach, which meant not having to move our car. I was surprised to have to pay for parking, as I think this should be hidden in the rate. Overall, worth the stay. Would recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: They have great eateries, but also a lot available in the streets close by.
