Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I love this place, just went for a second time. I've done over ten escape rooms and the ones I've done here have been my favorite. Super nice feel in the bar, there's games all over to play and fun cocktails themed after there rooms. The games themselves are very technical and well made. The spooky ones are a ton of fun and as a bonus If you beat your room you get a special pin themed after the room. Staff are also really great, can't recommend it enough.

    Such a cheap night - we found free entry coupons in a tourist brochure, and paid $10 for uncapped basics throughout the night for ladies night.
    Fun night club, sometimes not really sure whats going on and music was an interesting mix, but overall a good time

    Our large, extended family celebrate our occasions here by choice. Good, inexpensive meals, plenty of room for the children to play outside. The club needs updating but is adequate.

    Stayed here for 3 nights over the Pacific Airshow weekend. Close to Surfers main beach and I walked a couple of times. Easy enough to catch the tram to down to Broadbeach and the Casino. Rooms are nice and spacious, with all the amenities, air con, heater, tv, table and chair. Would have liked a chain on the door as well as the standard lock for security. Pool nice but no-one in due to it being too cold. Pub good too with a sort of house/community feel but I spend most of my time drinking in Surfers with the cheaper drink deals. No real hassles over my stay, only the cleaner/caretaker making a loud ruckus outside the rooms talking away could be done someplace else. Would recommend.

    A fantastic free event we have met so many new friends here over the years it is a fabulous way to connect with like minded people who are ready to relax listen to great music drink eat and party.
    It is so well organised we always appreciate all the effort that goes into putting on one of the best 4 day festivals in this country. The new addition of Twelve Bar Society this year was a winning idea we were excited to be apart of the first one.
    The merchandise we got in our goody bags was terrific. The set up was amazing in the vip marquee although not happy about paying so much for mid strength drinks in the bars. We didn’t spend much time in those areas as it was cheaper to go to a venue to drink and watch the bands. We will definitely do the TBC from now on. although most we spoke to said they wouldn’t bother as there was better spots to view the stages and no one is happy with the mid strength.
    The weather wasn’t kind in 2022 but we still had the best time ever.

    I’m from Newcastle where there are plenty of great beer venues and being a smaller city the prices are much less than tourist hotspots.

    The beer selection is great here, I found it slightly expensive in the context of my first statement (average $10/370ml) however the service was great and being in the middle of surfers I guess that’s to be expected. The focus is domestic brews which I am a big fan of, pretty safe range (lagers, pales and hazes) but enough to wet the whistle.

    We ordered a couple of kids meals and then ordered a medium well steak (not proud of my wife for enjoying burnt steak) and half a rack of ribs. Kids meals were fine, the kids ribs were stuck to the bone and not falling off but figured kids wouldn’t care anyway.

    When the steak arrived it was delicious but closer to medium rare than medium well. The ribs were horrible, same as the kids ribs. I am normally a little reserved however have been into smoking and bbq a lot lately so knew the ribs weren’t up to scratch. $35 for half a rack isn’t cheap so I sent them back. I ate some of the steak and the kids were half way through their meals so when asked I just said a refund would be my preference.

    The manager and wait staff were extremely professional and I have to say they really saved the experience and turned what could have been a very negative review into a very positive review. The manager offered a full refund, a round of drinks which I couldn’t refuse and went as far as offering a garlic bread as he knew I wasn’t eating now. I declined the garlic bread as I felt they had done more than enough to remedy the situation. Honestly - to the team, well done on your customer service.

    I was happy to walk away at this point with absolutely no hard feelings and just not leave a review at all. The manager came back and said the kitchen had redone the meal (a full rack mind you) I said no thanks as I had another 2 beers and wasn’t really hungry (I had initially declined a recook as kids were already eating). He insisted and said there was actually a miscommunication with the kitchen and to please take them as they would just be thrown out. I said I can’t say no to that and took the ribs home.

    I wasn’t particularly hungry but when I opened them up and tried them...wow. We finished the whole rack and they were night and day from the first serve. I don’t know what happened but it went from potentially the worst ribs I’ve had to some of the best ribs I’ve had... well done to the kitchen staff for making it right.

    TLDR - great service, if I could give 4.5/5 I would for the slightly underdone steak but overall a great night out with super friendly and professional staff.

    We booked the grazing brunch. The food menu appeared nice and parts of it were. The squid and chips were served slightly cold which was disappointin and likely nice if they had been warm. Bread platter was nice. We were Asked about drinks every 30 minutes but it could take another 20 minutes to actually get your drink (sometimes we had to request twice). Overall staff were friendly but the system seemed chaotic and when questions were asked the waiting staff assured us they would find out but never actually returned to tell us the answer.
    I hope we can return when it’s a bit more organised and with warmer food.

    Visited Elsewhere for the first time this past weekend. It's more of an underground techno-house club. If this is your music, there IS no other place to get your fix (as far as I know) on the Gold Coast. Bar staff were a little obnoxious but I couldn't care less. It's about the music. Elsewhere is a genuine techno-house scene. Reminiscent of the Berlin Lounge Bar from back in the day. Very few drunken idiots. Many lovers of cutting edge techno and house music scene. I'll be back there as soon as possible!
