Boulevard North Apartments
Reviewed April 6, 2011

Every room has a balcony with a view to the beach. Easy stroll to restaurants and shops. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Stayed here last October and again last month and will definitely return. The Managers where friendly and the pool is sparkling clean and inviting. At approx $100 per night I think Boulevard North's self contained apartments are great value.

Room Tip: A great bus service in the Gold Coast

I paid top dollar upfront and was supplied with the dirtiest place we have ever stayed in. Filthy stained quilts, broken appliances, dirty couches, stained carpets, everything of the poorest quality. Even rusted wire hangers and a rusted clothes horse. Spoke to other guests who were also very disappointed but met with nothing but smart comments by managers. It is criminal to advertise the place with photos indicating a level which it does not meet. Realised there are many cleaner, better value apartment complexes on the Gold Coast. A total disgrace.

We stayed at this accomodation for 5 nights.The room we stayed in was very basic /run down and not clean. I could have overlooked this if it wasn't for the rude / arrogant attitude of the managers - Ray & Margaret. I have never experienced managers like this couple anywhere in the world. My children (4 & 6 ) we "told off" by Ray on our very first day for diving into the pool ! They also said good morning to him each day and he ignored them on each occasion. I could go on and on but what is the point - my message is DON'T STAY HERE !!!!!

We saw this block on our last visit and thought the location looked fantastic. So, this time we booked a short stay in a one bedroom unit.

The location is great, the building while dated is well looked after and has plenty of amenities.

Our unit was however not particularly clean, the furniture worn, old and uncomfortable and the metal parts rusted. The TV was old style and not a flat screen. Still, for what you pay, it is reasonable and, remember, a great location.

The parking is convenient and the lifts work well.

We had a renovated unit but maybe this was a while ago? The stove and appliances seemed quite dated. It seems the standard of the units can be variable, according to the propensity of the owners to spend money and update them.

Our main comment would be that the managers are, at best, off hand and disinterested. In our experience, they did not seem welcoming or helpful. If you need an extra roll of toilet paper you will pay $2 for it! We felt it was all a bit of an imposition on their part.

In the end we simply limited our interaction to the minimum.

In winter our unit was very comfortable but in summer it could be very hot!

We would stay again for the location and the views and the value but make sure we were getting an updated unit.

Certainly with friendly managers, this could be a great experience. Until then?

Good luck!

I was on a girls trip and we weren't looking for anything too expensive. We booked a standard 2 bedroom apartment on the 6th floor with sea views for around $120 AUD per night. The unit came with a queen bed and 2 singles so slept the 3 of us comfortably.

We really didn't have high expectations considering the price and some of the reviews on trip advisor however we were looking for affordable 2 bedroom apartments that had views and close to the beach. Our apartment ticked all those boxes. The views were amazing and you couldn't get closer to the beach if you tried. It was in walking distance to Broadbeach center, the location is perfect. The pool was adequate and the grounds are tidy.

It's not a flashy apartment block by any means but our standard unit came with an adequate kitchen and a nice flat screen tv in the lounge area as well as new table and chairs as well as a new lounge suite. The bedrooms are basic but each one had a balcony. The unit also came with 2 bathrooms. It is the bathrooms that certainly made this unit "standard". Very basic and they have not been upgraded in years. However the water pressure is good and suited our needs. There was also a washing machine and dryer. I understand that there are deluxe units that have been completely refurb so if you're happy to pay the money then that is always an option.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday while staying in the height of luxury i'm not sure that this is for you. However if you are looking for a affordable, comfortable option that has a fantastic location with amazing views then i would recommend this property. I will certainly keep it in mind for my next visit.

If i was to go back tomorrow i would take a couple of extra towels and extra toilet paper. Some towels are provided but we did not receive a towel change and though there was some toilet paper provided there were no extra rolls in the unit.

We found the managers to be very pleasant too.

Ok so I have to say "to each their own" especially with the mixture of negative and positive feedback on Boulevard North.
This is our second visit to Boulevard north and my hubby when he was young used to stay here his family.
My hubby and 2 kids aged 5 and 8yrs old stayed here for 8 nights towards the end of october and I have to say that we absolutely loved it!!!!
After reading a few of the negative reviews, we weren't expecting much and from a previous stay were expecting the traditional cane funiture...lol (not that there's anything wrong with cane furniture) Much to our delighted surprise, our apartment was very modern and clean.
You have to remember that most of these apartments are privately owned and the owners rent it out. If you owned one of these, you wouldn't exactly want new expensive furniture prone to be broken by visitors. Then again we were lucky because we did have a nice plasma tv and new looking couches.
We stayed in a 2bedroom on level 3 and had awesome views of the beach. In regards to the customer service, we had no problems with the managers - they seemed very nice to us.
Boulevard north is GREAT value for money especially for the Broadbeach area. It is in an ideal location with fantastic views. It is about 5-10 mins walk away from the nearest shopping area with a supermarket (i've forgotten the name). The local surf club is ideal for meals, great value (yes i am budget conscious) compared to the other restaurants and the service there is excellent, as soon as you walk through they are practically jumping on you to find a table, which is fantastic because it gets really busy.
But all in all - if you dont have very high expectations - you will not be disappointed!!!

After reading some reviews we were a bit concerned about what we would find on our arrival. We were pleasantly surprised. Our 1 bedroom apartment had recently been renovated and was very clean and functional. The kitchen was well equipped, all new appliances (stainless steel fridge and dish washer) and all in good working order. Great selection of crockery, cutlery and glassware however the wine glasses were thick glass so not terribly aesthetic. Large plasma screen with Foxtel, DVD player, iPod connectivity sound system. Apartment is compact but more than adequate for a couple. No TV or radio in bedroom was a bit of a negative and I had to request a hairdryer as the one that should have been in the bathroom was not there.

Downside in hot humid weather could be lack of air conditioning in some apartments. View up the coast and out to the ocean was great, just across the road from the beach and 10 minutes walk to Broadbeach shopping centre and mall. Managers were friendly and helpful.

Perhaps older reviews should not be given too much weight. Judge for yourself.
