We were staying in a south-east facing unit on the 23rd floors which has the most fantastic beach view I think. The apartment is walking distance (5 minutes) to Boardbeach shopping and dining area. If you want a quiet location than this is the place.

Talisman is a reasonable option for a brief stay. We had a function to attend and needed accommodation for two nights. The apartment (Room 20 - Level 6) we stayed in was due for a refurbish, both in terms furnishing and fixtures. It had dark carpet and heavy curtains which probably retained the odour of the previous guests' meal! The en-suite bathroom was very small. The apartment only had an air conditioning unit in the living area which may not be adequate for the cooling the whole unit. The main bedroom in the unit faced the road, which meant it would have been noisy if the windows were open. For our stay the weather was cool enough to not have to use the air conditioner. Talisman suited our needs for a short stay. Talisman has great views and the beach is just across the road.

So well positioned - beautiful views, simply stunning!
Booked in August but was told that our request for a higher floor than Floor 6, and refurbed room couldn't be granted as had no other rooms. As such got Room 20 - musty smell of arrival, Tired and dated kitchen/dining furnishing - Beds VERY hard!! and Ensuite in much need of revamp (Rusting shower head) so disappointed after reading all the rave reviews of Refurbished apartments. Windows ill fitting and squealed in Wind - very Hard to close tighter!
However room was clean.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful

Room Tip: Book Early if you want to get a Higher Floor, Refurbished room and perhaps call apartments to discus...

Booked in to Talisman based on location and reviews from members of tripadvisor and I was not dissapointed! When I first contacted them by phone and offered my choice of style the manager quickly suggested a certain(unit number withheld so I get a chance to rebook in the future but it's on the top 5 floors :) ) on the upper floors. It was amazing,freshly renovated with some of the best views one could ever expect on the Gold Coast. The bed was very comfortable and the atmosphere was excellent. One suggestion to the owner of the unit though-you have a tv outlet and such in the master bedroom-maybe consider installing a tv there just for insomniacs like me. I'd thoroughly recommend this accommodation. The location is quiet but still very very close to some wonderful eateries(within a few minutes easy walk) and not to mention the patrolled beaches just across the road. Now I guess I'll have more trouble booking in.By the way this is a fully self contained accommodation so if you expect to have you're sheets changed regularly or the room refreshed you'll have to arrange that with management.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room-don't worry about the view-except for the very lower floors, all have s...

We enjoyed our recent stay at Talisman apartments and would definitely stay there again if we return to the Gold Coast. We had a NE facing apartment and the views were AMAZING. Really could see the beach/ocean from every window. We have small children and the pool is great as it's heated very nicely so after a long day out we could all have a swim late in the afternoon and not freeze. The apartment was very spacious and had everything we needed. Was very clean too. Check in staff were friendly and helpful. A few minor points remind you that you are staying in apartments rather then a hotel, e.g. no shampoo/conditioner (only bars of soap), had to pay to hire pool towels ($16), reception closes at noon on weekends (which is just a bit of a pain when you get back and find someone else parked in your carspace and there's no one to work out who and get them to move - there is a phone number but we didn't consider this an 'emergency'). But these are not really complaints as are VERY minor and given the amazing views, location and size of the apartments, you can't go wrong here for the price.

Room Tip: NE facing rooms have views from every window.

Having stayed at Broadbeach many times Talisman has the best position.Staff were very friendly and our check in after hours on a Saturday afternoon was simple using the hotel phone to get instructions for obtaining the key from the key lock safe. We had chosen an apartment on the 14th floor facing south east so we would have a view of the ocean all the way to Coolangatta.SPECTACULAR.
The apartment was very large with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms separated by the entrance hall.Fully renovated and beautifully decorated..Plenty of wardrobe space and drawers in the bedrooms and (for once) enough coat hangers even for all the clothes bought at Pacific Fair. Taxi to Pacific Fair was between $8 and $10 and the Mono Rail was $3.Shuttle bus from Airport to Talisman was $90 return for 3 people.
Will certainly make sure we always stay at Talisman when holidaying at Broadbeach.

We stayed to find that the rooms needed so much maintenance. Do not even change the sheets, or towels we stayed well over a week. Don't have anything good at all to say about the place. The views and location is excellent

Room Tip: If you want service this is definitely not the place to stay

We are disappointed that you did not have a pleasant stay at Talisman. It is diffcult to respond to the maintenance issues without specific details, however we would like to address the complaint mentioned in your review regarding linen.Talisman is a fully self contained high rise apartment complex just like the majority of apartment accommodation on the Gold Coast. We are not a hotel. Being self contained, all of our apartments have a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Because there is a laundry in the apartment, guests can choose to launder their own towels if they desire. We do not provide a linen service every day, although this can be arranged with reception for an additional charge. This is clearly stated on our website and in our compendiums. Guests are given a service clean and new linen during their stay if they stay 9+ days. This happens half way through their stay (day 5). Longer stays have a weekly service and linen change. Hopefully this helps to explain your concerns re linen changes. We appreciate all our reviews and truly try to rectify any complaints so that they do not occur again.
