We stayed here in May 2013. My 71 year old mum, 18 year old son and husband and I. We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. You have locked underground parking and key access is required to go upstairs the security is very good but not so visable u feel locked in.The apartment was quite spacious with lounge with TV and Foxtel, dining room large bedrooms, plenty of hanging space for clothes etc. Five minute walk to Cavill Avenue and the main shopping areas of the Goldcoast. Right near the Highway to get out to the theme parks. The apartments are only three levels and have a great swimming pool BBQ area (to cold for us to use pool lol). The reception staff couldnt be more helpful. Some of the apartments have full time tenants/owners so we found it to be quite quiet but we were there off peak. We would certainy stay here again. The apartments are super affordable and the location makes it just perfect. There are no lifts so if staying with elderly people a ground floor apartment would be best however in saying that mum had no problems going up and down the stairs.

Room Tip: Top floor looking over pool or if older people travelling choose a ground floor unit

Very good location on Gold Coast, very quiet and close to Surfer Paradise center. Common parts of the resort are very clean specially the swimming pool. To be recommended to everyone looking for a quiet stay at the inside of

We stayed as a family of 4 for 6 nights! I have a teenage boy so the extra bathroom came in very handy, as did the tennis court!
The pool area is great, and the location is fantastic!
Great place for a family!

We just spent 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and we have been pleased with the apartment and location.The apartment was big, nice and clean, 2 bathrooms is definitely a plus with 2 kids!The kids enjoyed the pool a lot!Easy access to the theme parks as well!
However , we found it very noisy, the first 2 nights we woke up at 2am, probably by the residents having a late night at the pool and it was very annoying and frustrating.Couldn't find the number for security so we gave up and waited patiently..Thankfully the 3rd night was quiet but that would be a point i would raise with the staff if we had to go back there

Thank you for your review.

We are glad you liked the units and our new pool and spa area. Our units are ideal for an affordable family holiday as you point out.

We apologise for the disturbance, however, we are not sure why you could not find the number for Security. It's shown clearly in the compendium which is in every unit, or you could have reported it to Reception after the first night without having to wait for the second night or a return visit, or reporting it through this report?

We always deal with any issue immediately it is reported, so not sure why you thought it best not to say anything until now.

Our pool area is locked nightly at 9:00pm by Security who patrol the building regularly during the night. We also live on site and have security surveilance monitoring which we check regularly every night so any disturbance could not have been the pool or any other common area, especially at that time of night, but possibly another unit or more likely one of the neighbouring buildings. Disturbances here are rare due to our location and the family type accommodation we offer, as indicated in the vast majority of reviews which comment on our quiet location.

Booked in to the Bay Lodge with our family in October.
We were quite surprised at the standard of accommodation given the price that we paid.
The unit we stayed in was clean, spacious and comfortable for the 4 of us with cable TV and under building car parking.
Close to the centre of Surfers but in a quiet area within walking distance to everything.
Bus stop on the corner of the street.
Pool and spa area great! Staff very helpful including booking all our tickets for day trips.
Would recommend for families who do not want hotel style accommodation.

Room Tip: We stayed in a unit facing the neighbours house. View not great but very quiet which we wanted.

Thank you for your review which we appreciate.

The Bay Lodge offers the best and most affordable Self Catering accommodation for family holidays in the best location in Surfers Paradise, Budds Beach, as you have confirmed.

We are getting very positive feedback about our new pool and spa and it's good to see that they are getting plenty of use.

We are glad that we could assist with your tour bookings. Pre booked tickets are the way to go.

Hope to see you back.
