Beachfront Viscount
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Marion and David are lovely and made us feel very welcome.
Viscount is right on the beach,so amazing views from all rooms.
We could not fault our apartment it was perfect and the rooftop is out of this world , so amazing.
This is where we will stay next time back, its easy walking to Oasis and Surfers Paradise, just around the corner is Lolas cafe and takeaway plus a Beer, Wine ans Spirits shop, just along from that is a corner store for grocery items, we found it to be great, and also another eatery.
We really enjoyed the location of our apartment , we had a 2bedroom on the 7th floor.

A group of 6 of us arranged to stay at viscount on the beach for the v8s weekend (as well as one of us attending a work conference at sea world). The track was a decent walk although it was an easy walk. We could have also taken bus or taxi but walking was fine for us. We had a night out at draculas which was a short taxi ride. Bottle shop and takeaway food place was a very short walk and there was also a great Thai food restaurant in easy walking distance. Sea world was also a short bus ride away.
We had great ocean views and spent most evenings on the deck. There was also a spacious living area. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. The great benefit was having car parks for the beach in very close proximity - meant that there could be multiple cars for people to do their own thing and no dramas about parking. The rooms were all very quiet and there were no problems with noise from either inside the apartment or outside (eg traffic, neighbouring apartments etc).
The only real negative was the lack of screens on the balcony doors - meant that there were a lot of insects inside when the door was left open in the evenings.
The hosts were very flexible to make check in as easy as possible and were really friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending viscount on the beach to others.

When our family of 7 were two days away from flying on our long awaited holiday we were advised by Ultra building at Broadbeach that they had double booked our apartment and were sorry to tell us we no longer had a room as they were fully booked. The anger and panic set in, but luckily at the stroke of midnight our saviours David and Marion of Viscount on the beach came to the rescue and provided us with a stunning beachfront apartment at a very reasonable price. Marion was very understanding especially since we were travelling with 5 kids. She and David made our holiday possible when we thought we had lost it! Nothing was ever a problem for them and they always had time for a quick hello. We will definitely be staying with them again. The kids had an absolute ball and can't wait to return. It's like a home away from home with brilliant views and bbq's on the rooftop with spa, showers and toilets. The ground floor has a nice pool with beach views with direct access to the beach via a gate. We stayed in room 22 but all apartments have ocean views! Well done Viscount. This hotel does not have a restaurant or fitness centre but we could not remove the rating for these.

My family and I recently stayed at the Viscount On The Beach and loved every second of our stay. From the day we booked we received fantastic customer service from Marion, which continued throughout our stay.

6 of us (4 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed in a three bedroom apartment which contained everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The apartment was clean, spacious and obviously well looked after. The view from our balcony was beautiful, looking straight onto to beach. We were also lucky enough to see whales every day!

The location was great, just between the centre of Broad Beach and Surfers Paradise. It was a 10-15 minute walk to Broad Beach and 25-30 minute walk to Cavil Ave. Just behind the apartment block there is a fish and chip/pizza shop, super market and restaurant. If we didn't feel like walking, cabs arrived within minutes.

The pool area was lovely, right on the beach with a handy walkway down to the sand. On the top level of the complex a stunning BBQ area with spectacular views up and down the beach and a spa bath.

Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to holiday in the Gold Coast and look forward to visiting again. Thanks to Marion and Husband for such an enjoyable stay.

One weeks stay at Viscount Towers was extremely enjoyable and very relaxing, two would of be better. Great location right on the beach with close proximity to shops, bottle shop and various restaurants and clubs. Very friendly hosts and guests helped make the stay fantastic. Really enjoyed the early morning walks on the beach watching the sensational Sunrise and at the end of the day the beautiful full moon glow on the sea after a magnificent sunset, simply stunning!
We all spent plenty of time swimming in the pool and the surf and the kids loved every minute of it. Great roof top BBQ and entertaining area with amazing views up and town the beach.
Can't wait till we get back again for a another relaxing time.

Our eighth stay at Viscount and it still as great as the first time. Marvellous views.. north south east and west. Pool, spa, BBQ and secure parking all make it worth it. Location is just right and close to shops (Oasis). Apartments are large and allow for plenty of family to be with you for a reasonable cost. AND hopefully we'll be back for many more..............

Room Tip: All are great but we love waking with the sun on us so the east side is our favorite.

Arrived with the family for a short visit to the Gold Coast to be greeted by a spectacular view. Very spacious, quiet apartments with helpful managers. The top floor BBQ and spa are terrific. Perfect location, close enough to Surfer's Paradise but not in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view, it is amazing!
