We weren't aware check out was at 10am and woke up to a rude knock by their housekeeping with extremely violent knocks.. it was quite frustrating and we were asked to pack up and leave. The rooms were very rugged and toilet was very small. Location wise I'd agree it's prominent and central but I'll pick other hotels over this...

As is standard hotel policy within Australia - check out time at the Beachcomber is 10am. Housekeeping do enter rooms before 10am, but they do assume that after that time all guests have departed. Late check-outs can be arranged prior to departure with reception.

My wife and I stayed here for a week and were not disappointed. For the price you can not get a better location, minutes walk to everything in Surfers Paradise. The room on the 23rd floor though dated had everything required for a comfortable self contained stay, the view was fantastic, and the staff were more than helpful to assist...

This hotel is in the perfect location , mins walk to the beach , woolworths supermarket and places to eat. I had a studio on the 29 Th floor , with amazing views up and down the coast. The hotel room had everything , kitchen , washing machine was great, The only issue was the bed. It was hard.

My husband, son & I stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. The room was airconditioned, close to the beach & comfortable. If you are looking for an upmarket, modern place to stay, then it's not here. We also recommend bringing your own porta cot as another family member of ours used the resorts one & apparently wasn't in...

Our room was a Studio Apartment. While the decor was "dated", it was all clean and tidy. Upon opening the curtains, the magnificent view of the beach was revealed. The resort is within easy walking distance of the beach (200m), many international flavoured restaurants and shopping (both for fun and necessities).

I have never had a worse experience in my life! The room itself wasn't the let down as that was very clean and smelt brilliant, however it was tired and everything was broken! The part that makes my experience the worst ever was the reception staff and the other people staying. I have never been treated so rudely in my...

Beachcomber management only directly manages 30% of the apartments in the building – the rest are private units. Unfortunately, many guests do not realize that resort management has no control over the upkeep, maintenance and cleanliness of the private units. To maximise your experience at the Beachcomber, it is very important to ensure that you are booking directly with the...

Never stayed in a place where the beds were disgusting, furniture dirty/broken and the locks on the doors were broken. Didn't feel secure in the room. Couldn't wait to leave. The rooms (even after changing to another one) were mouldy and smelt bad. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Hated every second at this hotel. Room was disgusting, carpet was stained, the 'pretty blue couch in the deceiving photos' was torn, bad odour & very uncomfortable to sit on. Bathroom is extremely outdated, you get half a roll of toilet paper & have to pay $1 a roll if you're lucky the reception is open. 2 single beds pushed...

I should have read the reviews more carefully. Please listen to othes and avoid this place. It is so run down, the couches were so disgusting and dirty beyond imagination, we could not sit on them and had to place sheets over them. Not a hygiene environment for kids at all, they will get sick. Kitchen utensils are missing with...
