Brisbane, Australia
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Fairly simple and basic in terms of amenities, but it has everything you need. Things I always look for are small things like hair dryers, irons etc. Staff were really helpful and pleasant to talk to and assist whenever I needed something. The location is great, close but not too close and avoided most noise pollution.

Well-equipped kitchen, big bathroom (strong hot showrer with a lovely large cubical) washer and dryer, comfy bed and a big balcony (that can accommodate a load of washing and a couple of people! I hate a small balcony!) The pool area and grounds are nice,...

Melbourne, Australia
Reviewed 30 July 2016

The Broadbeach location is handy to all this area has to offer, but our unit was looking a little worse for wear. The carpet and couch were well worn and stained, as was the crockery. The rooms are not very well appointed with hardly any provisions supplied and these little things can go a long way when saying "welcome" to...
