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.

When we cooked our breakfast on the first day but we can not find any pan in kitchen and all cooking utensils & containers are too oily seems not to be ready for the new guests living. The washroom has some hair on the floor. Our bed sheets were not so clean either. Overall the cleanliness of the room is unacceptable. I think the BnB needs to provide more training for their cleaners. The hot water supply was not stable and used up quickly, so we had to spend a lot of time reheating the water. My body was almost frozen. Only the location is quite good but will not make me stay in next visit to Gold Coast.

Not so sure you are writing this review on the correct property. We are not a BnB. All your concerns are definitely not indicative of any of our apartments here as has been reflected in many other great reviews.

We had not been to the Gold Coast for some time and heard The Breakers resort was a great location , cost effective and the people Lyn and Mick Stephens , who Manager the place, are excellent. In summary; Location outstanding - right on beach. Rooms - great view and rooms well set out and clean. Service - nothing any trouble from management. Facilities - pool and barbecue are right on beach We are so glad we spent 5 days at The Breakers and the trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you Lyn , Mick and Sarah for your service. We Recommend a stay at The Breakers you won’t be disappointed. We will be back.

Absolutely stunning location, rooms are really modern and self contained with full kitchens, washing etc and fast Wi-Fi. Staff, Sarah & Lyn are the best! Only met Lyn on departure and she seemed as lovely as Sarah who’d been our personal tour guide for our week (from the UK). Respect. You guys make the whole experience 👏 Highly recommended. We will definitely return for another stay. Love it.

The Breakers is an older building with individually owned, self-contained apartments. This means that each unit is different and there is no room service etc. It was perfect for our family and the type of holiday we were looking for. 1) Location: it is in the middle of two of the most popular districts on the Gold Coast. Only a 15 minute walk to Cavill Avenue at Surfers Paradise and 15 minutes to The Oasis at Broadbeach. In 5 minutes walk, you get to the tram station that can take you to the Casino and the other major shopping districts. The apartments are right in the beach! You don’t have to cross a busy road. This is such a wonderful safety consideration when you have small children. 2) Views: I recommend that you request and pay a little extra to have a room with the ocean view. It is so beautiful and part of the feeling of being on a relaxing holidays. 3) Friendly and helpful staff: Although it is self-contained, there is still a reception and they always greet us when we are entering and leaving the building. They also gave us good ideas on activities to do with the children. 4) Cleanliness: The cleaners of these apartments have excellent attention to detail. These apartments were the cleanest I have stayed in within the self-contained range. 5) Self-contained: The fact that these are self-contained is an ultra bonus when travelling with a family. We were able to shop and have a fridge full of food and snacks for the kids and us. When we didn’t want to go out for dinner, we were also able to cook. There is also a BBQ area and it was a lovely night being able to have a BBQ in the beach. It is the only accommodation option on the whole area that has this option! Perfect for families and those who love to be so close to the beach. Suggestion: If the building has space, I would recommend adding a games room for the rainy days. The apartments are large but would be great to have some table tennis, pool and good old fashioned pinball. It would suit the era of the building and create a wonderful sense of nostalgia for the guests. I would advertise it like “old-school games room” I’d give each room their own balls for the table tennis. That way people don’t keep destroying them or having people looking for them.

Booked in here for a 2 week break and were astounded with the service provided by Lyn and Sarah. Could not speak highly enough of them and our stay at Breakers. Nothing was too much trouble . The rooms were extremely clean a credit to the staff who do the cleaning. They were always bright and cheerful. These premises are much quieter than staying in central Broadbeach but are only 5 minutes from same. The rooms were spacious , good views of beachfront and no noisy guests. Showers were very good an important point for us . Everything was provided for cooking , foxtel, washing and drier. We have no hesitation recommending this venue for a good holiday.

Perfect spot for the family. Out of surfers but so close to everything. Pool and beach on your doorstep. And the view from our balcony was great. Definitely will be back again and the staff are also so helpful.

We were relocated to these apartments, as the ones we had booked had water damage and couldn't accomodate us. Well I'm glad we stayed here. Lyn made us feel exceptionally welcome from the moment we walked in. We were greeted with a warm smile, followed by some humerous banter mixed with a professional attitude. I felt at home straight away. We had a couple of small issues, if you could call them that. We were notified of a scheduled maintenance that was planned in advance, whilst expecting minumum occupancy. As we weren't meant to be there anyway we completely understood. Post maintenance we had lost power to part of our apartment. Lyn was quick to climb up on a chair in our laundry, to rectify the problem straight away! Now thats service! A pizza we had in the freezer had defrosted and that was offered to be replaced without a fuss... On another occasion our water had stopped working. Again communication and an explanation was relayed very clearly to us. This was rectified quickly and didn't really cause us any problem or inconvenience. For former (or future reviewers) that complain about these kind of issues, please remember 2 things: 1) It is not Lyn's or any other staff members fault that problems arise. There are a lot of apartments there. Do you expect for them all to operate flawlessly and without failure or maintenance??? If you do, ask yourself, has anything in your house/mansion ever broken down??? 2) If you are a reasonable person and do actually understand that point "1)" above happens to us all, be mindful that the people trying to make your stay as comfortable and trouble free as possible, do THE BEST THEY CAN. They are NOT robots, and any kind of accomodation (including fancy hotels) break down. This is an apartment, and advertised as one. If Trip Advisor (or any other www or app) lists it differently (eg: a hotel) this is not their fault. Complain to the 3rd party site listing it, as it is they that have made the mistake. We really enjoyed our time here. We wanted an apartment, not a tiny stuffy hotel room. We had a LOT of room four family of 4 to sprawl out. The apartment was in great condition. If people experienced lesser quality keep in mind most of these are likely privately owned, so consistency across all apartments should not be expected. If you want a shiny one with great views, ASK FOR IT. Highly recommended!

We had a 2 bedroom apartment at the front of the building. The apartment was very spacious and had been well refurbished. We had a problem with the washing machine, which looked nearly new, and the manager was really helpful. When we couldn't get it going she took our washing away and it was done in another machine. Only negative is no bedside tables in the main bedroom and perhaps the bed could do with replacing.

We booked an ocean front 2 bed apartment on 7th floor. Great views and very large accommodation. Very comfortable and great assistance provided by reception; Sarah was a great help and nothing was too much trouble. Pool was great and right on beach with patrolled area pretty much at the rear. Easy access to Broadbeach and Surfers for shops/bars/restaurants etc. It is perfect if you want comfortable, self catering facilities.
