“Nice room!”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

We stayed here for a wedding and couldn't have asked for a better time! The room was clean and tidy, shower was hot and room facilities were new and working. Location is great didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked great from out room! King bed was the best part slept well after a long day. Would recommend the buffet breakfast it was awesome!

We stayed in this hotel for full two weeks over the Christmas period. First of all, if you are traveling to the Gold Coast with children, the better places to stay are either Broad Beach or Burleigh Heads. Within Surfers Paradise this did seem to be one of the better hotels. Having said that, it was a constant struggle to get our room cleaned up. As an example, they would call and say "the hotel is not too booked today, so our staff would like to go home early, we need to make your room within the next X minutes". Peculiar. The pools didn't get too many sun hours and they were rather small. Lastly, their approach to internet access is archaic. You need to buy one code per device! We wouldn't plan to come back to this hotel.

Stayed December 2012, travelled with family

Stayed here for 3 nights in mid January. We stayed in one of the Club rooms on the top floors. Was such a lovely place to stay. Location was good, right near the beach and just a short walk to the main strip. Lots of great facilities which were all clean and well kept. We splurged out and had the seafood Buffet on our last night and it was delicious! So much yummy food!
Really enjoyed the stay. Thanks so much!

I haven't stayed here yet, but due to bad weather my flight was cancelled and I thought I'd lose out on accommodation because of it, I booked through a hotel site and the hotel kindly agreed to change my accommodation for me to May when I've rebooked my flight, and I haven't lost or been charged any fees. I'm looking forward to staying in a hotel that offers such amazing service. I was coming up for my birthday so unfortunately the trip has been delayed but the hotel has been great changing dates for me at such short notice

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights this time. The hotel room is not too big, but nice and clean. The bed is a bit soft for me, I do prefer the firm mattress. Hotel location is very good. Just one minute walk to bus stop. You can take bus 702 to airport, it costs $8.50 per adult. Bus 750 to Sea world; bus TX2 to movie world, wet n wild, and dream world. Shopping centre and food courts are just about 5 minutes walk. You don't really need to hire cars. It is very convenient to take the public transportation.

Everything was easy - from check-in to check-out. The pool was sparkling but a bit cold. The concierge was very friendly and knowledgeable. Only downer was the cost of breakfast - a bit steep for what was on offer. Will definitely stay again.

foyer modern but rooms dated, only shower over bath. Kids not supervised at pool or gym. waves resturant only have buffet for $65.00 per head, you would have to be really hungry to get value. Staff friendly but tour desk staff not up to date on local attractions i.e were told seaworld opened at 9 but wasn't till 10. It was ok.

Thank you for your feedback. Your comments have been noted and we wanted to let you know that we are planning a major room refurbishment in the next couple of months which is very exciting. Our full seafood buffet is $65 on Friday and Saturday nights and $55 every other night. However, we also have another restaurant, Amalfi Bistro, which offers single meals ranging from $17 - $29 each. We are glad you found the staff friendly and have advised tour desk of the correct theme park opening times. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel.
