“Great location!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

My stay at the Palazzo Colonnades was ok. The location was great as it was close to surfers paradise, only a 10 minute walk to the closest woolworths. The view of the river was as delivered and we had great views of Surfers Paradise. The beach was only a 5 minute walk away. However the shower was not very clean and the bathroom draws had what looked like smudged foundation in them. Overall our stay was enjoyable and good value for the money we paid.

stayed at colonnades Dec 2011, the staff were freindly and helpful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was small but comfortable had everything we needed for our stay.
the balcony had a view of the city and the ocean.
I requiested a high floor and they delivered ... it was a great holiday!
loved the gym and the spa and sauna.
we will be back!

Room Tip: rooms are small but still have everything you will need!

Stayed here with a girlfriend. The room was big and clean and perfect for us. Hotel staff were very nice to us and did not cancel our booking ( we arrived late after being held up with volcanic ash cloud). Nice pool area. Great sauna. Close to all icons of the Glitter strip.. We walked it all but it may not suit older people

I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights and it was a great experience. Only a 10 min walk down to Cavill Avenue and a 3 min stroll down to the beach. The staff were extremelly helpful with anything we needed including recomending some great places to eat. The room was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Overall a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone.

My family and self stayed at the Palazzo and it wasnt very nice at all. The unit was very out dated also the carpets were old and outdated. The hallway carpets are an eyesore. This Hotel needs updating and the carpets in the lift are old another eyesore. The Spa water is warm and the sauna is turned down Wow I wouldnt recommend this place to any of my friends

Room Tip: higher floors have less aircon noise

We recently stayed at Palazzo Colonnades, based largely on the reviews on here. We arrived at 1am (got to love cheap late night flights to/from Brisbane), and the after hours process of getting into our apartment was outstanding and very smooth. Got to our apartment and noticed a couple of minor issues - a dodgy balcony door lock and a blown light bulb in the second room. We reported them when we checked in the following morning and to our delight both were rectified by the end of the day. While we didn't see much of the staff in our time at Palazzo, when we had contact with them they were outstanding - good old fashioned customer service where they'll bend over backwards to make sure your stay is a pleasant and enjoyable stay. As for the apartments themselves, while they don't have the latest and greatest in there, they are clean and comfortable, and certainly serve their purpose very well. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, with a balcony either side, with fantastic views. Having 2 toilets was also handy at times. Being an apartment it has full cooking facilities and a washing machine and dryer, which comes in handy. The location is also outstanding. Walking distance to Cavil Mall and Skypoint, yet still far enough to be the quieter part of Surfers where you can get a decent night's sleep without interruptions from the nightlife outside. Also, Thrifty is next door, so if you want to hire a car at a slightly cheaper rate (or realise you'll need one when you get there), it's easy to do it from Palazzo. Overall, if you're looking for the latest and greatest with daily servicing, this probably isn't the place for you. However, if you're looking for somewhere cheap and comfortable with fantastic service and can wash your own towels, then you'll love this place.
