very well appointed property - friendly staff. The property was ideal for the vacations that I had in mind. If I ever return to the Gold Coast I think I would choose to stay again. No need for a car, close to the tram and walkable into the main drag

Good clean apartment, property offers great facilities in an excellent location with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed on the 38th floor and the views were amazing, we could see the whales from our balcony while we ate breakfast. You can't beat that!

Great location with fantastic views. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Just across the road from a patrolled beach.The only negative was that the furniture needs to be cleaned or replaced.

The rooms/ apartment needed a good extensive clean, including windows. There were a pod of whales out the front for 3 days, more good luck/timing so a bonus. Staff pleasant and friendly. Overall a handy place to stay, but there would be better value properties available for $1,200 for 4 nights.,

This is the second time our family have stayed at the Imperial Surf. The location is second to none. Our rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. I don't want to entertain trying another hotel in case it doesn't measure up. Yes, it is not the most modern, but it is very comfortable and clean. The views... well, sublime.

Laying claim to some of the best views on the Gold Coast, BreakFree Imperial Surf offers quality accommodation at a reasonable price. Located in the heart of Surfers Paradise overlooking the beach, all apartments have ocean views, some with sweeping panoramic vistas of the Gold Coast hinterland and surrounds. Perfect for a weekend getaway, mini-break or beachside family holiday, accommodation options include one and two bedroom apartments with large balconies, fully-equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, TV and security access. The resort offers a range of leisure facilities including a full-size tennis court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, BBQ area and tour desk. Only a short walk will have you in Cavill Avenue where you can hit the shops or dine at one of the many cafes or restaurants. When the sun sets the Surfers Paradise nightlife takes over and all the nightclubs are only a short walk away. With the surf-patrolled beach directly opposite and the retail, dining and entertainment hub of the Gold Coast literally on the doorstop, the resort offers choice - whether you want to laze in the sun or party until the sun comes up.
