“Great Time and Great view”
Reviewed September 15, 2007

Stayed here with my family (kids 7 and 3) for 4 nights in August. Booked on line direct with hotel and got what I consider a great deal, 4 nights for £370.00. I requested a 'high apt' and ours was on the 32 floor.

The 2 bed apt was clean, spacious and well equipped. Essentials for my wife include a washer and dryer and the apt had both. Views were fantastic into the Gold Coast hinterland, and being on the West side of the building meant there was sun onto the balcony in the afternoon and evening. We were in North Tower 2.

Check in was easy and there was good safe internal parking. We used the Pools in the Sky and I used the gym and indoor pool. All were excellent and not crowded, ours was a weekend stay.

The apartment had a slightly must smell as though the previous occupants were smokers but this was my only minor issue. The apt also had free Fox tel - essential for the kids.

Location was excellent, very central, at ground level there were a good selection of bars and restaurants and the walk to Surfers Centre was 5 Min's max.

If you are looking for somewhere with a bit of luxury at a reasonable cost right in the heart of Surfers then I would recommend these Apts.

We had two balconies and I will admit to feeling a little nervous when the kids were out on them and they received a solid pep talk on the first day about not going out without one of us.

Overall I was very impressed.

On arrival we were unable to locate our unit.Luckily we came across another couple,similarly lost, who had met another guest who was able to help.This occupied our first hour.Our unit was filthy and it stank.The refrigerator would not work,but was replaced the next day.The location was excellent ;close to beach and restaurants.
We visit the Gold Coast regularly but will not stay at the Chevron again.

Liked : location
Disliked : the accommodation.

Good location, kitchen is ready with all facilities, but we have never stayed at an apartment that was that filthy before. Sheets were not changed before we come and bathroom and toilets were filthy. When we complained about it, all what was offered is new linen that we should go to the reception for pick up. They promised that this will be reported to house-keeping and will be moved to another room. However, none of this happened and house keeping did not visit our room until the 7th day (as per their regular policy, disregarding our complain)

On 7th day, they only swept the floor, arranged beds, and added soap.

The location is wonderful, and if you're welling to clean while on holiday, so the place is good. However, we will never go back to chevron again.

We've just come back from Surfers, and had a wonderful stay at the Chevron Towers.
We stayed for a week in a 2bd, 1 bath apt on the 10th floor. The apartment was modern, well furnished and very comfortable. I sure am going to miss the shower pressure. It was so good that my partner said that if he had one complaint about the room, it would be that the shower had too much pressure! The weather during our first 2 days at Surfers was miserable with rain, but Chevron had an indoor pool, spa, gym and sauna that meant we could still enjoy a swim. Towards the end of our stay when the weather warmed up, more people began to sunbake out by the lagoon pool, which was just a gorgeous sight.
The Surfside buses ran right across the road and that was handy after a days trip out at the theme parks or returning with armfuls of shopping.
The only real complaint I would have would be that even from such a high room, the noise from the people and traffic below on the road could still be heard at night. So if you're a light sleeper then i'd suggest you request a room further from the highway.

  • Liked — the recreation facilities
  • Disliked — the highway noise and the lack of internet in the apartment

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment on the 7th floor (Apt 1072).
The hall way carpet was littered with small white rubbish.
First impression on walking in was "small"
2nd, "Dated"
3rd "scruffy"
The carpet in the main room was an ugly cheap beige colour, covered in stains. The glass door opening onto the balcony was dirty inside and out.
Next we had a look in the bathroom. It looked o.k. at first but when the toilet seat cover was opened, there on the seat was urine splashed all over the seat and excrement in the toilet bowl.
My partner cleaned it straight away because it was so disgusting and also to avoid me going crazy at the reception.
There was no soap dish for the used wet soap and mould on the shower grouting.
The ironing board was bare iron. The kettle is revolting on the inside.
We had all only had 3 hours sleep so all went to sleep.
The next day I complained about the toilet and ironing board to the reception. I was told that an ironing board cover would be delivered and a full service cleaning would be done the next day for free although it would usually cost $140. Obviously what is standard elsewhere is classed as doing you a favour here.
10 hours later and still no ironing board cover so a visit to the reception again and 1 was delivered about 15 minuted later. It was a paper thin cover so still the ironing board was unusable as there was no padding.
On the plus side, the reception was fast and efficient and the location is unbeatable.

Location Location Location.....

If your wanting a hotel apartment style in the Gold Coast then this is a great hotel... We are a family of 5 and booked a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment, fully self serviced with kitchen and laundry.

Living areas are a wee bit on the small side but we didnt mind as we didnt spent most time in the room. The decor was modern and clean lines...

This complex is located above a shopping mall which is very handy as there is a Coles supermarket there so great to stock up the kitchen, also a number of restaurants and cafes so plenty of options...

The pool complex is named Beaches in the sky and is like a man made beach lagoon type pool very stunning, great BBQ area to have a family dinner..

We booked this through a website that private owners who own apartments here list on, i found they offered better rates than the going direct to the hotel.

I can't rate this place highly enough.

Location - just at the end of Cavall Ave, walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants. Bus stop out the front to catch the public bus to theme parks. Coles supermarket on ground floor makes it easy to stock the fridge and pantry.

Facilities - heated indoor pool and spa as well as "beaches in the sky" which is a lagoon with sand around it for the kids to play in and spa. Great BBQ area and heaps of lounge chairs to catch some rays. Private theatre which came in very handy to use a couple of hours after checking out of room and before our flight home.

Apartment - 2 bedrooms with spacious living area All in all, a great place to stay. My only criticism is the water temperature of the outdoor pool/lagoon. It was extremely cold and not able to be enjoyed as much as it should have been.
