“The best Hotel we have stayed in on the Gold Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2010

Visting the Gold Coast, approximately once a month, we have stayed in 'some of the best' - but Radisson surpasses them all. We arrived earlier than check in time but Front Office Manager checked us in and gave us a room upgrade; the room was glorious. Evening seafood buffet was somewhat disappointing but morning breakfast buffet was tops. Restaurant Manager very helpful. Free parking was an added bonus. We will definitely check into this Hotel again

My Husband and I decided last minute to spend a night on the Gold Coast for his birthday and got a great deal through Wotif.

When we arrived we were met with a warm smile and quick service. When they found out it was Hubby's birthday they upgraded us to a better room :-)

We decided to go into Broadbeach for dinner but came back to the Radisson for after dinner drinks and by the look of the buffet we were thinking we should've stayed there for tea :-) We did however have an amazing breakfast the next morning. The buffet has plenty of variety.

The room was lovely, the bed and pillows were so comfortable. There was no noise and the curtains kept the room really dark in the morning. We didn't get to use any of the facilities as we were only there for one night but we went for a wander and everything looked great.

Definately planning a return trip.

My partner and I have stayed here twice and will definitely stay here again.
The resort is a short drive inland from the beach and main tourist strip, ideally suited to golfers, those with a vehicle who are touring the area, and those looking for a low key relaxing break. Not suited to those wanting a lively nightlife or a beachside location. The rooms overlooking the golf course are very peaceful, the pool area is beautifully landscaped and the resort has a quiet feel during the day. The restaurant has several outdoor terraces, the small terrace overlooking the fairway is a great spot to watch the golfers over a leisurely breakfast.

Stayed for 1 night and had a great room overlooking the pool, the room was very spacious. Would recommend this hotel if you dont mind being too far from Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise.

Hubby and I disagree on this hotel. For a 5* hotel I just didn't have that wow factor I expected. Still, the check-in and the staff were very good and helped us to our room with bags. Room was a good size, overlooked the tennis courts out back with nice view to mountains. Complementary smellies, tea, coffee, kettle, hairdryer, iron and board, brolly. No bottled water which was a surprise. Had TV but some channels duplicated. Bed was comfortable which was handy as we were ill for 4 days! Room decor a bit out dated and could do with brightening up/modernising. Has two swimming pools but didn't use them. Hubby used the gym and says it's fine. We only had one meal in the restaurant which was a bit pricey but very good. Location is a bit remote so we had to hire a car to get to the strip, Tamborine mountain and beaches and well worth doing. Also recommend driving the 90mins to get to Byron Bay as well as it's an easy drive. My main gripe is that you have to pay for everything. The shuttle bus to take you to Surfer's Paradise had a charge. Wifi was $2.50 an hour. Internet in the room was $16 a day! Just had the feeling we were held to ransom a bit because of the location.

Overall, it was a nice, comfortable stay. Special mention to Lak on reception whose service and help was exceptional, very friendly and polite. If you play golf then this is definitely the place for you.

Radisson is a golf and spa resort located in more quiet Carrara district. It is just a 5 mins drive to broadbeach malls or Jupiter's Casino. Carrara weekend markets are a big draw. Rooms were of good size and hotel facilities were good. Close to the highway entrances to Tamborine Mts etc.

We arrived late at night, were swiftly and politely served then taken in a golf cart to our room. This marked the high quality of service we enjoyed during our whole stay.

The room decor was dated but clean and comfortable. It was equipped for the guest to take only snack meals in the room (fridge and limited plates/cups, kettle etc.). It faced a tennis court on which were held frequent tennis lessons, so during the day was not particularly quiet but acceptable. More disturbing was the occasional vehicle noise from the road nearby.

A few miles from Surfers Paradise and beaches (nice), which easy to get to by car (necessary). The hotel buildings are set in a large and well kept golf course with lovely lakes. Views from everywhere were beautiful, with a distinct tropical Pacific Island feel, thanks to the landscaping plant choices. Good swimming pools, fitness center and lounges made it a pleasant place to just spend time. Didn't visit restaurant.

Best features were the location and quality of hotel. Worst aspect, which would not be shared by all rooms, and was not particularly troubling, was the sporadic noise from road.
