Hello and thank you for your review. We are sorry that you missed the information on booking platform you used, that clearly states there is a charge for the use of a sofa bed. Because of your situation I cut the rate for it's use by 66% to assist you and thought that to be a very fair offer to...

I have stayed here for work purposes the last few years. It is close to everything in Broadbeach and a very cheap stay. It is a basic apartment but what else do you need. If you want to pay more go elsewhere for the bells and whistles as this is an older style apartment, rooms ,,decor. Walk to beach, shopping,...

We are a 3.5 star property and we like to think you get value for money. There are other accommodations around that are twice the cost of our rates. We are in the process of upgrading rooms and furniture where it is needed and thank you for your continued loyalty and support and also thanks for your review.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and enjoyed our time here. The rooms were clean and the location was great, just a short walk to the beach. The free parking was also really useful. We didn't have a balcony on our room and were round the back of the hotel which was a shame as it meant our...
