The location, the views, the helpfull staff & it's in walking distance from great experiences in Surfers. Our studio was great & the views were to die for.
First visit for a long, long time to Surfers Paradise and really enjoyed everything we saw and we will be back!!!!
We had perfect weather to see the whales ,magnificent!!!

Room Tip: the corner room with the view from the bathroom is where I'm staying next time

Thank you for your feedback. Our Studio apartments are amazing from spectacular ocean views, to spacious kitchen. I'm so pleased you got to see the whales from your room. Here is some information regarding the Whale season this year. Please note all our rooms have ocean views to witness these amazing creatures.

HUMPBACK whales are already being spotted making their winter migration along our coastline with the biggest pods since pre-whaling days expected to pass Byron Bay and the Gold Coast this year.

Southern Cross University marine ecology research centre director Professor Peter Harrison said up to 17,000 humpbacks would make the northern migration this year as the population continued to recover by about 10 per cent a year after nearly being wiped out during the whaling years.

"This year will be very special; there will be more humpback whales along our coastline for the first time since mid last century.

Please book direct with the Chateau for your free upgrade to a higher level. It will allow a better view of the WHALES......

We booked our stay last minute, our room was small but cozy and was very clean, we also had a great view of the city lights and surfers paradise beach, the rooms were in our budget, fantastic location and the staff were friendly and very welcoming, we will definitely be back.

Thank you Cindy for leaving some lovely feedback regarding the Chateau. We appropriate and value all our reviews from our guests. If you are on the Gold Coast on Tuesday 02 July we would love to invite you and your family for a lovely day by the Chateau Beachside Heated pool. We are having Currumbin Bird Sanctuary visit us with all their fury friends.

We hope to see you back at the Chateau Beachside resort in the near future.

We enjoyed our stay at Chateau Beachside. The apartment was clean and the room was spacious. Elevators worked well and parking was OK (able to park until noon next day, though check out is 10am). Staff were on the ball. When we arrived in the room, we found the TV would not work and we couldn't pull out the sofa bed. Seemed that there was a special technique for the soda bed for this room. Inconveniently, we had to call the main number to ask for sheets for the sofa bed, as they didn't advertise the reception number in the room. We thought the sheets would have been previously prepared - they knew we had two children booked. Also we had previously called directly to specifically request twin king single beds, however the apartment we were given didn't have them - but didn't bother us. They soon got the TV working and the sofa bed able to be pulled out. Despite these very small issues, we were very happy with our stay. PS. Toothbrushes not provided.

Room Tip: Too high = no wifi

This was an excellent location for our needs with a very short walk to the facilities we needed/wanted. The accommodation provides all that you need and we found the room very spacious with a fantastic view of the ocean. If you want a "glamour" room this is not for you but if you want a clean comfortable spacious place to stay in a great location with helpful staff then I would recommend this place !

Can't believe I was wearing a T-shirt in June!!
