“Stunning Apart-Hotel, Top Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I should start by saying each apartment has different owners but the one I had was simply magnificent, the quality of the fit out was fantastic, great couch, comfy bed and I loved how the whole side of the glass wall folded back 4 times so it was like bringing the outside in. I loved the in-room cable box which I haven't seen elsewhere in Australia, being able to chose which channel to watch from a wide selection was great instead of the cheap option most hotels in Australia like to take where they use an analogue distribution system to send a couple of cable channels to the rooms. Overall I loved my stay, it was so comfortable it felt like being at home just with a beach and lot's of sunshine!, thanks so much!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a big balcony where the doors fold back so the entire wall opens to th...

We had a great stay during the Surf Lifesaving Carnival. Room was clean & tidy.

The only downers were the extremely uncomfortable bed, the revolting recycle refuse cupboard on our particular floor & the pool area which was very slippery once you were only slightly wet.

I would stay here if travelling to the Gold Coast again.

We needed a two-bedroom apartment at fairly late notice for the Easter weekend and happened across the Tweed Ultima online. For a very reasonable rate of AU$180 per night (direct through their website), we got a spacious and modern two-bedroom apartment with nice balcony overlooking the Tweed River. The location is great, a very short walk to the beach and also the main Coolangatta shopping strip. Underground parking was plentiful and secure and reception staff were always friendly. For the price, this was a great option for us and would recommend highly for the quality on offer and the perfect location.

One thing to note is that the apartment complex is in Tweed Heads so on New South Wales time, whereas just a few metres away you're in Coolangatta on Queensland time, so take care with things like checking into your flight from Coolangatta!

This was the second time my partner and I have stayed here, and we'd go back again. With a lot of research we have determined this apartment / hotel to be the best value in the Coolangatta / Tweed Heads region. You don't have to walk any more than 500 metres before you hit sand, and you are in the heart of the restaurant and shopping district. Both times we've been here we have noticed minor issues of cleanliness or things not working, but all in all the place is modern, spacious (huge apartments!) and very reasonably priced. We have stayed in the 2 bedroom apartments both times and each one has a different floor plan, but you will have more than enough space to unwind and relax.

Room Tip: The wifi is a rip off. I would no plan to be using a lot of internet if you are coming here.

Assumed a picturesque view of the beach or river from an open balcony...silly us they were penthouse photos of the views on the web site! Tariff of $225.00 for a 1-bedroom apartment during the Aussie Surf Life Carnival was we thought too much for the apartment we were given..what do they say 'supply & demand'. However, there was a lot of supply...by comparison - Nirvana by the Sea, vacancies $235.00 two bedroom, beachfront, all rooms have balconies and immaculately clean.
Apartment 2096 - carpet very worn, toilet seat broken, shower rose (could spit faster), holes in linen, pillows hard, mattress flat, old - needs to be upgraded, tiles in bathroom need re-grouting, lounge - you sit in the middle and it basically collapses under your bum, walls are scuffed and dirty (need a repaint).
Hard to cook when the baking dish and oven racks are covered in metres of foil!!
Servicing during a 10-day stay....a lick and a promise, did not smell clean on arrival or when serviced.

Room Tip: Stay at the Nirvana by the Sea.

Stayed several nights in January. Paid slightly more than quotes for a tiny motel room. No comparison, really. Very nice modern unit, convenient to Tweed clubs district. Short walk to Coolangatta cafes, shops and beach or river swimming. Secure undercover parking. Only downside is the street where you exit to walk is just a bit quiet with some seedy looking joints around the corner. A bit unnerving when walking alone at night....which is why We stayed there, for convenience to clubs.
Reception desk is office hours only.
This resort was obviously built to cater for the convention/ conference market with a dining and assembly room. Buffet Breakfast is often available in the dining room, but there is great little cafe just outside weekdays.
Would stay again, if nowhere else in area available......

I stay with the ultima regularly for work. I am usually very pleased with my stay. The apartments are very spacious, and reasonably modern. This stay I moved the lounges to do some exercise and was repulsed by the build up of dirt and rubbish from the ultima clearly NOT moving furniture to clean. There was a water bottle, cotton buds and corn kernals among other filth. Just seeing this made me feel dirty and didn't meet my expectations of what cleaning should be undertaken. The other thing I think is quite rude is for there to be an expectation that YOU as a guest must empty the bins into the rubbish Shute as you leave or 'extra' charges apply. Ultima, if you can't vacuum under lounges regularly why should I have to empty my bins. Strongly considering staying at outrigger next time, which is directly next door.
