Reviewed 20 February 2014

We stayed here for a week in august 2012 in a one bedroom apartment, the room was amazing everything was updated new and really clean. the bed was really comfy and we liked having a little walk in robe as we could put all of our luggage in there and not have to look at it. the bedroom was a decent size we were able to get a little kids blow up bed next to our bed with ample room for our 3 year old. the convenience of having the shopping centre under you for groceries was really good as you didn't have to travel far to find a woollies.
The pool was lovely and heated and even when it was slightly chilly it was still nice. the BBQ area on the same level was also good but doesn't have cleaning supplies and it has a sign saying not to bring things down from your room but has nothing there i suppose because they don't own the whole building this makes sense but was a little bit of a pain none the less.
There was only two bad things about the hotel / location the first bad thing about the room we had was the toilet got blocked on our 2nd day there but was fixed by the time we came back from our outing that day. The second was that because you are so central to everything the noise can get a bit loud and we were on the 18th floor and could still hear everything but was mostly the Thursday / Friday night when the late night shopping and clubbing nights were on. other than that i would recommend this hotel to everyone we really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: ask for a renovated room and corner rooms are bigger as well.

Hi Samantha W,

Thank you for your recent review following your holiday with us at Paradise Centre Apartments.
I'm pleased that you enjoyed our Executive Apartments, along with the pools, facilities and the proximity to the Centro shopping centre and Woolworths.

I apologise that you had to report an issue with the apartment, however it was pleasing to read our maintenance department were prompt in rectifying the issue.

I do concur with your comments in booking our recently refurbished executive apartments since they have been fully refurbished to a modern executive style apartment, which are well worth the extra tariff.

Once again, thank you for your review and I do hope to get the chance to welcome you back to the Paradise Centre Apartment soon.

Kind regards
Steve

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Paradise Centre Apartments (Ballah) building. We were well impressed with this apartment. The location directly above the Cavill Ave shopping centre was perfect, great for nipping down to Woolworths and Starbucks.

The apartment itself was clean, air conditioning worked well. The apartment was rather dated in terms of furnishings, but this was not an issue for us at all.

Our apartment had two bathrooms, but no bath. No major issue as our toddler just had showers instead.

We hope to stay here again in April, and while the furnishings were not all that modern, the location, size and pool area is enough to have us return and recommend to others.

Dear Whereismeg,

Thank you for the fabulous review of your short stay with us recently. I greatly appreciate your comments of being impressed with the apartment, facilities, and our location.

I would like to thank you for your comment about the apartment. Even though it was dated, it was still quite comforting for you and your family.

I would like to mention we do have two different room types for our 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, being our Standard and Executive type accommodation. Even though our Standard apartments are individually furnished by our owner and have not being refurbished, our Executive apartments on the other hand have been recently fully refurbished to a modern Executive class, which features modern furnishing and fit out. You’ll find our executive apartments impressive and are well worth the extra tariff.

I appreciated your comments recommending us to other and I look forward to being able to welcome you back again in April, hopefully for a longer experience this time!

Sincerely,
Steve Bickerton - Front Office Manager

What a beautiful apartment!
Stayed here during June 2013 in a one bed apartment. Booked last minute as we were getting fed up of Hostels and decided to treat ourselves. We were welcomed by polite staff who were very helpful! Upon entering our room it was very clean, tidy with all mod cons! Located above a shopping centre with a 'secret' door, this was very handy! Outdoor heated pool was lovely, and the Jacuzzi provided us with many pleasant nights under the stars. You MUST stay here, and whilst you looked outside your window to see beautiful sea views of Surfers Paradise it was like being in heaven. GO GO GO !

This is a lovely apartment block. Stayed here for a week when travelling down the East Coast. It was very clean and had everything we required. Also easy to get to the shops as there was an access door inside the hotel leading directly into the shopping mall which was very handy! The pool was lovely and was heated, which was great because we could go swimming even if it was cold and rainy (which it was during June time!). Would definitely recommend staying here, lovely views, very central, and nice clean, modern apartment!

This place is disgusting, you could not pay us enough to stay there again! The "4 star" rooms need updating & a very good cleaning, I felt more dirty coming out of the shower then I did going in. The manager is arrogant & wouldn't have the room cleaned so we ended up paying another $500 to be upgraded to the 5 star suite as we didn't want to ruin our holiday & couldn't find an appropriate room in another hotel. This suite was newer & would have been nice if it was clean! The only good thing about staying here was the central location.

This hotel offers one of the best locations in the heart of Surfers Paradise.
Located above the Centro Shopping Centre and surrounding restaurants. You can eat out on a budget or spoil yourselves and only a short walk away to everything.
The hotel offers and nice pool area and BBQ area where you can stay in and cook for yourself & the kids.
We loved everything this hotel had to offer and was ideally suited to the needs of our 2 year old.
Our apartment was practical which was tiled throughout, full kitchen, large balcony overlooking the ocean and was fantastic on New Years Eve watching the fireworks.
Thank You Paradise Centre Customer Service for providing us with the hub for a great stay this Christmas/New Year period. We will be back.
Angela & Paull
