“9 nights January 2013”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

I booked the Aristicrat because of the price - I have family on Gold Coast and have been visiting every year for 10 years and there's no question the entire region is becoming ridiculously expensive, the Aristocrat looked decent enough and a 2 bed apartment at a little over £110 a night I thought was reasonable.

The room was extremely spacious, comfortable king bed on one room and twin singles in the other, 2 bathrooms, complimentary toiletries, clean towels, fully fitted kitchen, large lounge area, large balcony, digital TV including premium sports channels, good size outside pool with a number of loungers, well maintained gardens, inside pool with sauna, this place was perfect for us.

Like many developments in Surfers a number of the units are owner occupied with only a few being available as holiday lets and these tend to be tired in appearance and lacking reasonable maintenance, and this was the case with our room.
The carpet had been down for many many years and the curtains carried mould, I also found tiny ants in the kitchen (we were 7th floor) and it is for this reason the rating I've offered is a 3. Parking was also an issue, clearly the occupants (live in) have more than one car which reduces availability for holiday visitors, and it's not always easy to park on the street either.
Had these not existed the rating would have been a 5, but then the cost would surely have been higher so swings and roundabouts.

As the Aristocrat had all the facilities/amenities I needed I would happily stay here again

Our apartment was on 15th floor with magnificent views. Clean and big, very comfortable. Good size pools, our kids enjoyed them. Five stars for Rachelle at the reception. Great service. Very good location, nice walk to Cavill Avenue Mall.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom newly renovated apartment for a weekend with friends. Room was a decent size with lovely views of ocean and mountain. Fully fuctional kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Very old hotel and in need of a serious upgrade. Pool and spa were not inviting. Gym room was tiny. One person at a time could fit. On an up note, 6 blocks to Cavill Ave, beach 4 minute walk. Overall it was ok for a few days.

I stayed here a little while back for nearly 3 months and found it to be quite lovely. The rooms are all slightly different, but good sized with a nice balcony and a kitchen. In our apartment, the master bedroom had floor to ceiling glass doors that opened up onto the balcony. If you are on a higher floor, I would imagine the views to be quite lovely of the ocean and the sun rising!

Our room had laundry in it which was a nice bonus, especially for an extended stay. From the time you walk out of the hotel entrance, your toes are in the sand in less than 5 minutes. Its an easy walk on a non busy road, then you cross into a little park with bbq and some playground equipment for little kids and then your on the beach.

The bus stops about a block and half away from the hotel so it is very convenient for getting down to Burleigh Heads or up to Southport or the theme parks. If you don't feel like walking in the heat, then its a very short ride to Cavil Ave in Surfers or to Broadbeach and Pacific Fair. If you have a car, there is parking in a garage underneath the hotel.

I did not realize I would use the pool area as much as I did. I figured I'd be at the beach all the time. However, the outdoor pool is quite large and a great relaxing change of pace at times. The indoor pool/hot tub are also nice and the sauna was an added bonus. Also, there is an outdoor patio seating area with a grill/bbq that any guests can use which is also nice.

The BMD Northcliffe surf club is a block away and one of the best we found in all of the GC. Great food and great views. Worth checking out for lunch at the very least.

I would recommend staying here if you'd like a little more than the standard hotel room (i.e. kitchen, laundry) and/or if you like a little more quite then if you'd be in the heart of surfers.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up have a better view of the ocean.

We stayed here from the 22nd of october till the 29th of october in a 2 bedroom apartment.
The apartment was great with plenty of room and clean.
The one thing that makes this place stand out from the rest is rochelle who works at the front desk. She always greets you with a smile and goes beyond what is expected from her to help.
We were having trouble booking our spots for Fright nights at movieworld and even though there was nothing in it for her she spent half an hour sorting it out for us even though she was busy.
if you are looking for a good place to stay you should try here.

As locals who live in Brisbane we stay on the Coast a least a couple of times a month for a short break. This has to be one of the nicest places we have stayed. Rachelle who took our booking was delightful, the apartment very clean and well appointed. The outside pool, indoor pool, spa and gardens are well kept. Loved staying there and have already booked for Nov with my family from South Australia. Highly recommend this property.

We spent 4 nights in an apartment on the 10th floor for a very reasonable price. The apartment was spacious albeit quite dated, however it was clean and we found the location suited us perfectly. We walked 2-3klms to the large Pacific Fair shopping centre and also used public transport on a couple of occasions. It was nice just to leave the car in the basement and get some exercise. Of course the beautiful weather encouraged us to get out and about. We had very interesting views from our apartment of the sea and of course other accommodation buildings which provided a pretty view at night with everything lit up. We found a wonderful surf club just around the corner and enjoyed a beautiful breakfast whilst overlooking the beach. I commented that you would have to go a long way to better that vantage point. The apartment is probably between .5 and 1klm to Cavill Avenue which is the centre of Surfers Paradise but we only ventured there once as there is plenty of places to eat and visit outside of Cavill Avenue. We would stay at Aristocrat again if the price was right.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view
