“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Staff were very helpful and polite, happy to help with directions and how to get to places.
The room was clean and bed was comfortable, we had two balconies with great views of the ocean.
Also visited the revolving resturant, lots of food on offer for the banquet and all tastes great :-)

What excellent staff - we got upgraded to a suite with a wrap around balcony and a bottle of champagne on ice and box of hand made chocolates each evening on return - Views from bath would make you think you are actually in the surf!

stayed in gold tower's 'ocean king spa deluxe' room.
we had just come from work, and were looking forward to simply relaxing and making the most of enjoying a one night stay, forgetting about the "real world"...
from the minute we arrived, staff at reception were very friendly and welcoming, attending to us the minute we walked in, and checked in without a fuss, within minutes. the guy seemed genuinely interested in how our day had been and wished us a good stay, if we needed anything, to ring or visit reception.
i was a hotel club member, so was informed of free late checkout and a free newspaper to our room in the morning! - an unexpected bonus!
carparking easy and (surprsingly) free! THANKYOU! a refreshing change to other hotels!
the room was on the 11th floor, so unencumbered by other buildings blocking views...and at the opposite end to the lift, so no chance of hearing the lift during the night.
room was amazing! exactly what i expected from photos. everything was clean and neat. very spacious. huge, comfy bed. lovely ocean view, with nice breezes to enjoy from our pivate balcony. bathroom and toilet separate from the bedroom, all very clean and decked out in green marble! spa was clean, and relaxing. fluffy towels and complimentary soaps were much appreciated. good space in robe for clothes and suitcase storage. big tv, comfy sofa.
we were very impressed with the room - just able to relax and enjoy our time. could have easily stayed there longer!
buffet breakfast in Relish was great - a little pricey for full buffet, but made it worth it with the attentive, friendly staff, HUGE selection and all delicious! loved the view into the pool/garden area from the restaurant. added to relaxed atmosphere.
quick, easy checkout, friendly service. pity we only had the one night. would definitely stay there again!

....and haven't even stayed there yet! I always request a room without an interconnecting door in my hotel bookings. Sometimes it can be accommodated, sometimes not. Never before have I been called by the reservation dept to let me know that all room types I booked have interconnecting doors, so that couldn't be accommodated, was that ok?

I am blown away. I used to work in hotels, including intercon who manages the property and am one of those dreaded people "who have traveled all over blah blah blah..." I have never received such attention to detail and brilliant service level.

Crowne Plaza res team - you are awesome. I look forward to my stay!

Great sized room, although it seemed a bit dated.
The view was just amazing. The room had a spa and was very well priced.

The location was a bit in the middle of nowhere.

Revolving restaurant and breakfast buffet were amazing! Good selection of food and nice views.

Dear Vascariz,
Thank you for posting your review of your stay with us in March last year and I am pleased to hear you enjoyed our facilities and services.
In relation to our location, we are situated on the boundary of Surfers Paradise, but we are geographically slightly closer to Broadbeach. There is excellent public transport adjacent to the hotel and we remain one of the few hotels on the Gold Coast who still offer our guests complimentary car parking.
Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and I do hope you have the opportunity to stay with us again sometime.

We arrived in QLD at 8am for a wedding that afternoon. We had requested early checkin to ensure we could prepare and were pleasantly surprised with our room being ready at 930am!! (I had thought if we were in by 1 I'd be satisfied).
The room was a good size with comfy beds, a wonderful view, large bathroom and kitchenette which was a treat! With a child with allergies it was great to be able to prepare & store his food in the full size fridge.
We spent the morning by the gorgeous pool, in the gym & on our balcony... No need to leave! On arriving back in the early hours of the morning after the wedding, the staff were welcoming and seemed genuinely interested in how our night had been. Oh, and they were extremely helpful when we required a shaving kit then a sewing kit as we got ready for the wedding. Every request was quickly seen to and happy dealt with.
I wish we could have stayed longer, but had to return home for work. I'm already planning another trip for a long weekend up to Surfers and will not hesitate to stay at the Crowne Plaza.
The concierge service was faultless also helping with taxis, airport transfers and even a bandaid!!
The room was great but I think the friendliness of the staff really sold me on Crowne.

Room Tip: I think every room would have a great room. We stayed in the Gold Tower.

Big clean rooms. Friendly service. Best breakfast selection I think I've seen. The revolving restaurant is magnificent with the best sea food

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay would stay again definitely. We stayed for a conference & I was pleasantly surprised.
