If we'd skipped the 1st unit (night), this review would be 4 stars. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Room 310A was atrocious! Bird droppings on the carpet, glass doors - filthy, disgusting click clack sofa (extra bed), toilet brush covered in brown?, dust millimetres thick, dried liquid spills all over the place. Even the TV remote was nasty. Every surface was gross, the bed linen seemed very clean though. Arrived around 2pm, were warned about Suncorp security deposits (*note at the end), made a coffee then went out to find food. We didn't complain then, opting to do so on our return, however reception was closed at 4:00-ish. The next morning we made it clear about the state of the unit and were moved to 228A, after we approved it. This unit was perfectly fine. Please see those photos. Such a shame that our stay was already tainted, because the complex overall is quite nice, the location is great and the staff were lovely. Apparently, the units are privately owned, but the cleaning is performed by the body corporate. The $200 charge for losing the key/fob is over the top! *My last (one and only hotel deposit in Australia) was also withheld by Suncorp for over one month, WHICH IS ABSURD. It's their policy. On the bank's advice I contacted the resort, TWICE, by email with their instructions to release the deposit. The resort never replied, but I did get my deposit back, eventurally.

Was a little anxious after reading reviews but was surprised and very happy upon checking in. Not sure what all the bad reviews are about. Lobby area modern and staff welcoming with a little kiosk for basic needs. The hotel grounds and bbq areas etc beautifully maintained with bbq’s overlooking the lake and sitting areas to enjoy the surroundings. The pool area was great ! Nice heated pool with hot spa and another smaller pool as well with waterfalls, all overlooking the river. Beautiful looking at the city lights during an evening swim. Location is perfect ! Right in the middle of surfers paradise but felt nice and quiet as well on “own island”. The room we had (216A) was spacious, clean and comfortable with everything we needed and good sized river view balcony. Felt safe and secure in the hotel. Great value for money. We will definitely be back !

My husband and I like staying here whenever we are in Gold Coast. Good location and value for money. It is not a 5 star accommodation so we pay for what we get. Booked 2 nights recently for only $80/ night and we got upgraded to 1 bedroom Riverview unit upon checking in. The unit has kitchenette, washing machine/dryer and fairly big balcony. The unit looks like it’s been painted not so long ago. Unfortunately the breakfast service in restaurant is no longer available.

My husband and I booked a night here but decided to leave almost immediately after entering our room. The carpet was dirty, the bed linen had lipstick stains, the air conditioning did not work, the walls had marks all over them, the fridge was broken and the outdoor furniture was dirty. The manager seemed genuinely surprised when we explained we were leaving. This would have to be the worst hotel we've (almost) stayed at on the coast, or anywhere to be honest.

Stayed here for one night. The rooms are extremely old and are need for a complete renovation. Bed is completely rock hard! Advised staff members that this was the case and they advised me that there was not much they could do due to limited rooms and each apartment being owned individually. Sleep was horrible and i have a sore back and arms. Carpet was dirty and had marks on it, and the room felt like it was built in the 70's Wifi was terrible quality and i had to pay $29.95 for a private network over 2 days AVOID IF POSSIBLE!
