“Wonderful Spacious Apartments”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

This is my second review of Marriner Views. We have stayed many times at these apartments and have never been disappointed, in fact we would never consider anywhere else. They are located at "The quiet end of Paradise" between Surfers and Broadbeach. We had another very quiet relaxing stay. Please see my previous review for a more comprehensive description of the apartments. I have added some more pics for this review.

Room Tip: A higher floor will give you better all round views.

I wasn't sure what to expect when my friend booked nine of us into two rooms for a bucks weekend, but after the experience I really wanted to write a quick review.

The rooms were great, very clean and modern and the views were brilliant, but the service was what really impressed me; it was absolutely second to none; thanks so much for helping us celebrate our mate's bucks, we had a great time and will certainly be recommending that our friends check you out.

Cheers!

Room Tip: Sit with your back to the window in the morning, the sunrise is blinding!

We booked 2 rooms and both were well equipped and a great size. Was Not like a tacky hotel with cheap fittings. It had a more homely feel than other hotels ive been to. Would def go again. We even had a security incident and the management were very helpful resolving it.

We are very happy to have groups of young men like the eight of you. You had a good time but were not noisy late at night and left the units tidy. We particularly enjoyed your bucks weekend activities with the scooters, fake bikie outfits and pretend girlfriend - all harmless good fun. We will always try our utmost to ensure the enjoyment, safety and security of our guests and are happy to help when they get into any difficulties like you experienced.

The place has potential if it werent for the beligerent management.

We were billed for pre-existing damage to the carpet which had alledgedly just been 'cleaned'
and all our appeals to the manager met with brick wall stubborness.

The manager accosted us the first night (after we'd just been away from the unit for half that day) and aggressively accused us of having just caused loud disturbances in the complex.

It was also concerning to see that the rear door to the complex was smashed in and innaccessible for the duration of our stay.

Bernie - before you bill a potentially returning guest for existing damage to the unit or make them feel persecuted by falsely accusing them of causing disturbance first, please ensure you have your facts straight...and remember that broken shards of glass do not make for a family friendly environment.

Unless you enjoy a gamble, give the place a miss.
If you do enjoy a gamble and accept a realistic possibility of losing more money than you originally intended, just go directly to the broadbeach casino instead.

Thanks for this review, which shows how committed we are to making a stay here as enjoyable as possible for all of our guests. The facts are: The unit had its 6-monthly professional carpet clean, which was inspected by us on completion. The four men in your party were the next guests in the unit. The spillage on the carpet can have come only from your party. On the Saturday night I did ask you which unit you were returning to, as you were noisy in the foyer and I wanted to make sure you were not going to a unit where there had been some earlier noise. On the Sunday night the rear security door was locked just before 9.00pm. At about 10.45pm I returned find a glass panel in the security door kicked in from the outside by someone unknown. Before I had a chance to clean it up your party of four men approached me from within the building, asking me to let you in to your unit as you had all left your keys (including your security keys) behind in your unit earlier in the day. I then cleaned up the broken glass and sealed off the area. Your party left the morning after the glass was broken. The panel was reglazed first thing on Tuesday morning, as Monday was a public holiday. Bernie.

We recently stayed 9 nights there. The managers couldn't have been more helpful. Apartments were very spacious and clean. This is the 3rd apartment we have had in the area over the last 3 years and this is the only one that we are very happy to return to next year. One point when booking - ask for one with a separate balcony. I can definitely recommend the units and if you play bridge, the Gold Coast Bridge Club is just a short walk away.

Room Tip: We preferred the B apartments for the view and the sun. As mentioned before - a separate balcony is...

We have just returned from a one week stay at the Marriner Views in apartment 20B. First of all the apartments are HUGE! Our apartment was spotlessly clean as were all common areas in the building. The view from this apartment was just superb with fantastic views from every room, from extensive sea views all along the coast to uninterrupted hinterland and city views. The balconies at the Marriner Views are huge. Our particular balcony was partially converted to a relaxing, glass walled, casual sitting area off the main room but we still had the remainder of the balcony off this sitting area, so we could sit outside if we wanted to. The weather, while we were there, was very windy so we were grateful to be able to have the views but be out of the elements. The main bedroom has an ensuite. The second bedroom also has a large balcony, again with extensive sea and hinterland views. The laundry room was well equipped with modern appliances. There were large flat screen tv's in the main room and bedroom. The room was very quiet at all times, there are only 2 units per floor with no adjoining walls. There was some traffic noise but not bothersome at all, as the main thing you can hear is the sea which is only a matter of a couple of minutes walk away from the Marriner Views. The beach by the Marriner Views is much less crowded than the beach in the centre of Surfers Paradise. The location is perfect as it's only a 15-20 minute walk into Surfers Paradise or a 20-25 minute walk into the more up-market Broadbeach.

There is a pool, gym, tennis court, spa, sauna, cabana/barbecue area and secure underground parking. There is also a meeting area adjacent to the reception. The pool area is relaxing and pleasantly landscaped.

All the apartments at the Marriner Views are privately owned and most have been renovated and I believe all rooms are required to meet certain standards before they are allowed to enter the holiday rental pool.

My partner and I are from England but live in Brisbane and whenever we holiday on the Gold Coast we always choose the Marriner Views for the spectacular views, location, apartment size, quietness and value for money. We have stayed in many of the apartments in this building over 20 years and have always been happy with our choice. Obviously, the higher floors have the best views but even lower floors have great views. We did stay once in apartment 2A and although views weren't as spectacular as the higher floors, we could still see and hear the sea. Again, 2A had a balcony converted into a pleasant, relaxing sun room.

Although it is an older style building (built in the 1980's), it has always been kept in exceptionally good order. For instance the reception area and all of the common internal areas in the lobby, including the sauna, have recently been completely renovated and refurbished.

The A and B apartments have slightly differing layouts. The A apartments have a balcony off the kitchen instead of the second bedroom.

The apartment managers, Bernie and Margaret are very helpful and conscientious regarding the comfort and needs of guests.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor which has been modernised and renovated
