Chateau Beachside
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had to revert to Plan B when friends we were going to visit could not be home at the time. Purchased 2 nights through Groupon Travel selection based on price, location and other positive tripadvisor review comments. We were certainly not disappointed. Building is rather dated but that is where the negatives end. Location is perfect right across the road from the beach with a very short walk to Cavil Avenue and the heartbeat of Surfers Paradise. Our room was on the 15th floor with a lovely view of the beach and pool facilities below. Set up of the room was very much to our liking clean, bright and breezy. Free Internet in the room and Free car parking below ground level were also highlights. Renovations currently underway to lower ground floor apartments so do as we did and ask for as high up as possible prior to your arrival. Value for money accommodation, can't go wrong. Would definately stay there again. In fact we had already booked a week at another Hotel (following on that 2 night stay) and both wondered if Chateau Beachside might just turn out to be better option than the more up market Hotel we were going to be in next; such was our impression of our initial stay.

Room Tip: Go for higher level room north facing - quieter and lovely sunny aspect in the afternoon.

She is old but she is well kept and in the best location possible. I stay here roughly every 6 weeks for business and I enjoy it every time. With 3 spas, Sauna, Pool and on site cafe/restaurant, the facilities cant be beat. The price is even better with off season rates at under $100 Aud per night for a HUGE studio with kitchen. This is by far the best value accommodation right smack bang in the heart of Surfers. You wont find better.

We recently booked a studio room on Bookings.com for the Chateau Beachside, it's a nice 'older' hotel but our studio was extremely spacious with amazing views. Separate ensuite, kitchen with hotplates, microwave, toaster/kettle etc. for food preparation if you are wanting to save some $$ by dining in. A dining area for 4 as well as a sofa bed and flat screen TV.

It's winter in Oz ATM and the unit was extremely warm and comfortable with no need to rug up. May get very hot in Summer. There is a sliding door with a tiny edge as a balcony but you cannot sit on the balcony, just stand and take pix - pity because the view is out of this world.

Central location, a block from Cavill Avenue. Carpark facilities available if driving down during your booking, if you choose to leave your car after checking out or prior to checking in they will charge you :( Restaurant downstairs offering all you can eat breaky for $15 if you require this, but heaps of restaurant within walking distance with fast food outlets less than 5 mins walk.

This resort, is quiet which is a huge bonus for light sleepers. It is a studio so open plan living which was not a problem for our overnight stay, but if staying longer you may want more room. Much better than a hotel room for the same price.

Beautiful pool is available as well as two separate spas - too cold for us to use in Winter.

Some of the lighting did not work which was a pest when we arrived late one night as unable to find our way around - we did report this on checking out - hopefully this has been rectified. Also we could NOT get wifi to work.

Having foreigners at the front desk makes communicating rather difficult.

Room Tip: As for a high floor with ocean views :)

In a perfect location for all things in surfers paradise. We stayed 3 nights. We had the 1 bedroom room and was good for us as a couple. Had to dine out for every meal as there were limited facilities. Room was neat and presented well. Overall a good place and would recommend to others.

great location, in the heart of surfers paradise. great restaurants under the hotel - $15 buffet breakfast or $10 for a big breaky.
although the hotel is old, its extremely clean. the cleaners must do a great job!!
free parking, which is a bonus, alongside, opposite the beach.
the bed was super comfy as well as the pillows. I would stay there as it offers great value for money

We stayed at chateau beachside, for our mini honeymoon. The accommodation is great, well located, clean, great views and doesn't cost the earth. The restaurant food below is awesome, there are plenty to pick from around but we kept going back. Big serves, average price, friendly staff, big menu and tasty food. I would go back just to eat there.

Big rooms lots of space. Hit water. Flat screen TV and ocean views. Nice place. Only grump is that there is construction happening. Lots of loud drilling and noise from 8am throughout the day. Make sure you get a room high up to avoid the drilling through concrete. Great place otherwise...
