Reviewed 4 November 2013

My wife and I stayed here for the month of October. In the run up to our trip I regularly checked this review site and I was confident of a good stay. This expectation was realised and more. We arrived around 0930, well before check in time, but within 30 minutes our room was available. 7th floor with ocean view. It was very clean and comfortable. Well kitted out with appliances. The sun hammered the windows from 0600 in the morning - what a downside!! - but we found that with it getting dark around 1800 we adjusted our body clock to going to bed, and getting up, earlier. Remember that this is self catering. The weekly service is merely a change of bed linen and towels.
The resort is quiet and well situated between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Easy walking distance either way. The No. 750 bus runs straight outside. obtaining a Go Card from 7/11 store entitles you to a 30pc fare reduction. We found that is was just as cheap and often cheaper to use a taxi.
We tended to head into Broadbeach where there is a range of good restaurants, often offering big discounts for early dining. This makes it more affordable for UK visitors. Best $10 I spent was to join the Northcliffe Surf and Lifesaving Club, halfway to Surfers. Visitors are made most welcome and your membership gets you discounted food and drink.
Such was our satisfaction with our accommodation, we had little need to interact with the staff but they were always pleasant and any advice given proved to be good. As we had a mid-afternoon pickup I asked about a late checkout and, as our room was not being re occupied that day, this was not a problem.
What you see on their website is what you get. An excellent value for money resort, right at the magnificent beach and I will have no hesitation in returning.

My partner and I stayed here at the end of October during the weekend of the V8 races. The apartment exceeded all our expectations. Beautiful ocean views and the apartment itself was very clean and had everything we needed including a full kitchen, and washing machine and dryer. You even have an in-room spa! It is also in an ideal location - within walking distance to both broadbeach and surfer's paradise but nice and quiet. If we come back to the Gold Coast this is the only place we will be staying!

Room Tip: Ask for an Ocean view room on a high floor

my husband and i stayed here for our honeymoon, and it was the best experience i could have hoped for. ken helped us out alot even thou we hadnt given him much notice (2 weeks max) and he organised a few room shifts so that we could have hte 1 room over our whole 7 night stay. i loved waking up and being able to watch the sun rise over the water, and the fact that it had secure underground parking made it so easy to be comfortable leaving our car there while we walked into the heart of surfers almost every night, as it is only a 10 minute walk. ken set us up with theme park tickets, and was so friendly to talk to. all in all we both loved the stay and cannot thank ken enough for all his help. we will definitely be back!

Serviced Apartments located between Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise, very close to the beach. Facilities are good - includes a pool, tennis court and underground parking. The apartment itself was a good size, could easily fit four if using the couch. Bathroom includes a spa! Also a washer and dryer and stovetop for cooking.

My Daughter & I stayed here mid October. From the minute we arrived we felt on holiday. Front desk staff were very welcoming,our room was ready (09.30) We were given advice on bus stop & frequency. The room was clean albeit a bit dated but it was comfortable with a sea view.We were on the 4th floor. We enjoyed the pool facilities. Staff were very good at booking our river cruise & nothing seemed a problem to them. Would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Loved the sea view it is a must

We found this hotel to be pleasant, we did find the check in part confusing. The say check in is after 2pm, but don't tell you that reception closes at 1pm on a Saturday nor make aware that you have to do an after hours check in.The decor does need to be updated tho especially in the bathroom. I also suggest that maybe people shouldn't be allowed to cook in the rooms, as we had two early morning emergency evacuations due to people burning their breakfast. I found the bed a tad uncomfortable especially the pillows provided. I did like that you could turn the tv around so you can watch tv in bed.The pool was nice and the spa looked relaxing. The owners are very friendly and easy to get along with.

Booked through travel agent and had no say in the accommodation. Read the reviews and was encouraged by the positive reviews.
Before travelling rang and asked for a hinterland facing apartment. Was more than happy dealing with the manager.
The room was on the 5th floor and was clean and well appointed. The view was pleasant.
While it was a bit of a work to Surfers or Broad beach but was not really an issue later in the say hired a car.
Room was a good size.
The balcony had good afternoon sun which was a real plus has the weather was good for our entire stay.
All in all Surfers Parade was a great place to stay

Nice to see that your agent made a good choice for you and also your request for a Hinterland view. There is a lot to see and quite often guests will request a hinterland view on their return. Cathy
