“Absolute beachfront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2009

One of the better posistions in Surfers.No road to cross ,just walk straight out onto the beach.
Apartment carpark is very small and would be a nightmare to try and park in if the place was very busy.(We had a people mover)
We stayed not long after a storm had been through and none of the windows or balcony glass had been cleaned.A simple job that my husband did in 5 mins and then we had an awesome view.We were in a 3 bedroom apartment which was huge and very comfortable inside for a family.Our friends stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which seemed to definitely have the better views looking straight onto the beach whereas we ended up on the side of the hotel for our view.
This place has a fantastic clean bbq area on the rooftop which we made use of every night we were there.I think overall this place was good value for money.It is defintely an older building but very roomy and with a fantastic location

It was lovely being right on the beach. Not much traffic noise just the lovely sounds of the waves ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! The Viscount Towers had their own Beach Access, so no worries about crossing the road etc.

Greatly reccommend the room we were in (room 25), it was spacious clean and had lovely views of the beach. Bedrooms were also spacious.

A fully equipped kitchen which had a huge fridge, microwave, dishwasher and stove, so if u didn't feel like/afford going out every night this was handy.

Marion and David the managers were friendly, helpful and went out of their way on many occasions.

The reception area is full of info about local attractions, with lots of pamplets

Just got back from a 6 night stay on the Gold Coast.We had booked our apartment online and were in constant contact with the managers,David & Marion in regards to arrival dates etc.They were very helpful.We had a three bedroom, 2 bath apartment right on the beach.Two rooms had a double bed and the third had 2 singles.The couch could have slept another person.The Apartment was modern and spotlessly clean.It came with all mod cons including a dishwasher,washer and dryer and in built hairdryers.It was completely self contained which meant we could cook all our own meals had we wanted to(I was on holidays so that wasnt going to happen!!)You had clean linen and a supply of dishwashing powder for the first night.It was Location,location being in walking distance to Surfers and all that it offered.The theme parks were a short 20 minute drive and there was no shortage of restaurants.The office in the hotel had all the information and pamphlets you needed to find everything to do in Surfers.The views were 180 degrees and you just took the lift down to the ground floor and could walk for miles on the beach.The roof top had BBQ's,a spa and a sauna.The pool was on the ground floor.I couldnt recommend these apartments enough and would suit families with small children,teenagers and couples.There were balconies to every bedroom and running along the front of the living area.Just perfect.You had security parking under the building but this was its only negative point.It was very difficult to park and it was cramped and parking took 3 or 4 times to fit in.I would advise people to buy their own food from the supermarket and to take packed lunches to the Theme Parks as the food is limited and very expensive.Burgers and chips are the go!!!!The apt was $270 a night and was well worth it.

Stayed in apartment #25 this March/April, 3rd stay in this apartment. Views are just fantastic, and being right on the beach it’s so easy to take a swim in the surf. The apartment is in great condition and plenty of space (3 bedrooms). The rooftop BBQ area had been renovated since our previous stay last year and they have done a great job. It’s just a short walk to the shopping and restaurant area of Broadbeach. Try the bistro at nearby Northcliff surf club for a great inexpensive meal. Highly recommend this place and it’s not over-priced given the location.

We spent a couple of days in a south-facing unit on an upper floor. This was our third stay as this place can't be beat for value and proximity to the beach. You literally step out of the building, past the small but very pleasant pool area, on to your own private access path right on to the beach. The units are positioned on the huge, sweeping Surfers Paradise/Broadbeach area - you can walk for a couple of hours in either direction and still not reach the end. There is a patrolled area right near the beach access path, so is great for families.

The unit: an extremely comfortable 3-bedroom set-up with a large wrap-around balcony with amazing views and a second balcony off one of the bedrooms (both are also a bit sheltered so can sit out there even if windy), above-average size bedrooms, big living area with comfortable sofa and full-size dining table. The kitchen had everything we wanted for self-catering including good wine glasses.

Reviewer: Fay from Melbourne
Nothing beats being directly on the beach. The units are spacious, the views to die for and the staff very affable. We had a fabulous holiday and the Gold Coast has so much to offer both oceanside and in the rainforest hinterland.

  • Liked — The size of the rooms and the balconies overlooking the beach
  • Disliked — Nothing really
  • Tips/Secrets — Make sure you spend lots of time in the rooftop barbeque and spa.

We spent a wonderful week at Viscount Towers - enjoyed wonderful views, excellent weather and good facilities. We highly recommend the rooftop spa and BBQ area!

Watching the sunrise over the ocean was spectacular & beach access is direct (no roads to cross).
