​Stayed here for three nights in the New Year and had an adjoining room with other family. Location was perfect, within walking distance to the tram stop and if one wanted, walking distance to Rundle Mall. Room itself was large. Bathroom was outdated and could do with a spruce up. Housekeeping was, shall we say, slack. Went out day 2...

I stayed at Chifley on South Terrace fro two nights from Monday 20 March and check out on Wednesday 22 March 2017. When I got to the hotel lobby on Monday late afternoon, the foyer was being renovated and I thought I was at a wrong address. A reception staff was very friendly and helpful she assured me that was...

Terrible experience, I think the photos I've attached explain all. The sheets on my bed were blood stained, the reception staff were quick to replace them but didn't seem as shocked as I was. No hot breakfast on site. Rooms, common areas stank and very outdated. Disappointing!

Basic, but clean. Got a good deal, so suited our needs to a tee. Would stay again . Room's are big and airy. Door opens up to a large balcony, which overlooks the South Parklands . Looks like it's going under a revamp. Staff were very helpful and friendly service.

This hotel has many pluses, the location, big comfy rooms and a very nice reception. But you can't seem to escape the sense that it is all being done on the cheap, certainly the carpets in the corridors have seen better days, the breakfast was basic with no frippery and the hotel pool towels are stacked on a trolly rather...

Rather outdated and in need of decoration/upgrade. Large room and comfy bed. Average value. Carry your own bags to room and had to ask for kettle. Reception staff very helpful. Swimming pool a plus. Walking distance to a few restaurants.

We booked a seven night stay at the Chifley through Wotif and had a super deal including flights. Being in the tourist industry on the Gold coast I had read the reviews before booking so was aware that the hotel did not compare to the Marriott in Surfers, saying that we had an extremely comfortable stay, very welcoming staff upon...

My partner and I stayed on a Saturday night using a Groupon voucher. Our room was quite nice and the bed was comfy (plus the aircon worked well), but everything else about the place was a little dated. Sadly for us we didn't get to try out the breakfast as it finished at 10am on the Sunday morning and we...

Stayed here on business for a week. The hotel is in a nice position overlooking the lovely parks along South Terrace. The staff are friendly and the service good. Unfortunately the hotel itself is in need of renovation with tired carpets, furniture, bathrooms and lift. My room had a musty smell, the cold water barely flowed (the hot gushed) but...
