Fun time on the Gold Coast - accommodation kept its promise. Friendly staff Tips for local attractions appreciated. Late check out and good amenities. Very loud neighbours and allergy kept us awake our first night.

Absolutely disgusted by the inattentiveness' of the hotel manager Vanessa. Spoken to with such an abrupt attitude when all I was doing, was making enquires. Room was extremely clean and I had no problems whatsoever with the room i shared with my partner. Lovely view over the pool. Would have given it a 5 if it wasn't for the disgraceful...

When we entered the room, there was a faint smell of cigarette smoke. This became more pronounced with the air conditioner running. The bathroom had a strong smell of bleach but the floor did not appear clean around the edges of the floor tiles. The room we had, was towards the back of the property and we did not hear...

I found this hotel to be exactly what I needed - an affordable, comfortable, clean place to stay. The pool was clean and functional with BBQ. The bed was comfy and clean, could have used a blanket though. The room was basic and not overly equiped but functional and clean. The place was mostly quiet (except for some idiot swimming...

Quite away from the main 'area' but there's are supermarkets near by. A short walk from the beach although the road outside is very busy. The rooms are very clean and basic. The cleaners are noisey in a morning but overall a basic budget hotel

The room it self was not very nice very sparse, was big enough to put a comfortable chair into but all they had was 2 metal type garden chairs. The drapes (two small ones) were covered in dust, one bed side table no bed lights. Worst room we...

Basic, check in out etc was easy. No plates to eat on but microwave, toaster and fridge. Not far from surfers paradise. Fine for a budget trip. Pool is okay but a little bug filled. Bus stops right next to hotel for easy access to town and airport

Looking for a nice place to stay, then stereo clear of sunshine beach resort, miami Queens land. No one on site to check in, apparently the office closes at 5.00 pm. No clear signage as to how to check in after that time. Office phone number has constant message advising that all operators are on other calls. Eventually got through...

We wanted an economic place to stay for a week, and got exactly that. A bonus was the exceptionaly friendly staff at all levels, they could not have done more for us. The room was cleand, airy with a view. Only limitations were the "kitchen" - just a microwave, toaster and fridge, no basin or real bench. Other problem was...
