“Extremely handy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

We have stayed here a few times now and we will keep going back. The location of this place cannot be beaten. The price is really reasonable. All the times we have stayed we have had no problems. Each time we have booked we have been able to get the room we have wanted.

Room Tip: We had a corner room the last time we stayed and the views were breathtaking but the traffic noise w...

We loved our stay - first of all they didn't rip us off. I had called to advise them that we would have our 2 and 4 year olds with us but that we would provide their beds and bedding, and we didn't have to pay extra. The views were spectacular and the location couldn't be better. It was clean, the staff were really lovely, the only thing I could possibly nit-pick was the size of the parking spaces - probably ok for most cars but our 4wd squeezed in and I had to climb over the seat to get out of the car. But really - that's not really unusual for a hotel carpark especially given it's location. Will gladly stay again

We were very happy with our stay at the Chateau beachside resort. It's in a perfect location, literally 1 minute walk across the road to the beach. Cafes and a nice bar at your doorstep and the facilities including a spa, steam room, sauna and pool made our stay fantastic. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday!

First up the staff were rude not very helpful it was a shock to see the pics of the rooms on the booking site to really what they were like when we opened the room door run down couldn't see out of the windows our door fell off the list goes on .no sink to wash up in the room or next to the BBQ area . Bathroom had mould growing off the walls

Room Tip: Don't do it there are much better rooms around the Gold Coast area

You cant beat the location, central to everything. We arrived early and staff were accommodating and helpful in letting us store luggage and park the car. Room was spacious, great views of the beach although could have done with another sofa or a chair of some sort. Bar and restaurant downstairs create a little haven to come home to as well

Would we come back - most likely Yes

There was a putrid smell when exiting to the carpark from reception, not sure if it was uncollected rubbish bit it was vile.

A couple with us had a smoke alarm going off at about 0300 and continuing throughout the night with the battery beeps until they took the battery out. These happen but you expect a quiet and comfortable sleep when in a hotel, not to be awoken and continually disturbed by a smoke alarm - reception staff offered a 10% discount for the inconvenience which was pretty disappointing so whilst we may be back the other couple wont.

My daughter, her friend and I stayed for 2 nights couple of days ago and had very nice time. Fantastic location right in Surfers Paradise, right across the road from beach and patrolled area, walking distance to shopping centre (essential for two teenage girls to walk around shops ;-) and for me to buy food). Nice pool area with spa. There were tennis courts and also entertainment room, but we didn't get a chance to do that as we were too tired after beach, pool and walking around. The girls appreciated the free dvds, most of them recent releases. The room ( we had the studio) was very clean, probably the cleanest I have stayed in for that price range and the ladies at reception were very friendly and helpful. We had our own breakfast in hotel and one dinner, our room had kitchen with microwave and stove. Lots of cheap eateries in walking distance where we ate other meals, especially the Surfers Paradise Surf Club. One improvement that could be made would definitely air-conditioning, there was only a cooler and girls got pretty hot first night as they slept on pull out couch in living room and there were no security screens on doors to leave it open for breeze. Other than that Chateau ticked all the right boxes and I have recommended to a lot of friends via facebook.

Room Tip: I had looked at several websites, such as hotel.com and wotif but got best offer by calling the Chat...
