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.

Reviewing this type of apartment is always difficult as they tend to be individually owned so the apartment reviewed may not be representative of the whole block but some aspects, I think are. Sadly we were disappointed overall with our stay, primarily due to the lack of cleanliness of the apartment. We mentioned this on checkout but were simply told we should have reported it on arrival and housekeeping would have been sent back- but this wasn't just a single clean that hadn't been done correctly, it was long time neglect, the beds clearly aren't moved between lets and I can't guess at how long it is since windows were cleaned internally. Even dishes/cutlery that had been put away were not clean but we soon found that this was due to an absolutely useless dishwasher! Dead batteries in light/fan remote were quickly sorted by reception and a hairdryer given to use when the bathroom one wasn't working - minor problems in their own right but you don't expect to have to keep visiting reception when you've paid a lot of money to stay! Absolutely no way that this is a 4star establishment which is what it bills itself as. On a more positive note, the location is excellent with just a short walk to Maroochydore Beach and a 10 minute stroll to Cotton Tree Beach. Lots of cafés within a very short walk. The pool area is lovely, plenty of shaded areas and and undercover 'couch' set up, the pool itself is very clean and well maintained. I have noticed that all of the 5star reviews are from pre-covid, those since are far,less favourable - I wonder what has changed.

My stay was disappointing this time, Unstable furniture, used roling pin to stabilise outside furniture. Dirty rooms . for a long time it has had a lick and a promise! Inside waterkettle brown powder, also unsafe, steam at the handle. Frayed blanket in maim bedroom, should be used as a dog snuggler. Clock and lampshade rusty. All in all this unit(47 floor 10 ) needs a thorough spring clean, replacement of furniture. I did complain to the management who admitted the cleaning standard was their responsibility but not the furniture standards.I offered to show them my photo's but they were not in the slightest interested. I was offered a discount after complaining , that I accepted. However.... I like to suggest that untill the above is rectified this unit should be downgraded to standard/budget with lower charges, as it is NOT a delux unit as advertised. But to top it off a Departure Letter is issued by management stating:" Apartment left clean and tidy, failure to do so may incur extra cleaning charges to your credit card." Now that really is a bit much!

Response from Chateau Royale, General Manager at Chateau Royale Beach Resort
Responded 12 Nov 2022
Hi Ellie, We offered you three choices on your arrival: - (1) You complained about dust on a table, we asked you if you wanted housekeeping to come and see you to rectify any issues which you declined. (2) We offered you Stay 7 nights pay for 5 nights which you gratefully accepted! (3) We also offered you full refund if you didn't want to stay which you declined. All in all you were unhappy in an apartment that is very well appointed, guests that just departed rebooked for next year saying " We loved our stay and the apartment". I guess you can't please everyone! Wouldn't it be nice if we could rate guests? I reckon 99% of ours would rate very highly, I wonder what rating you would get? Regards, Management

Advertised as beachfront, ocean views - what a joke. We overlooked Memorial avenue, saw bush turkeys, not much else. Master bed was comfortable, worst pillows I've ever slept on. Try purchasing pilows from Tony Colyer textiles, they are truly great quality. Kitchen bench on arrival was covered in sticky coffee stains, so was the outdoor table. Having undercover car parking was great, but there was no fob scanner accessible to get out of the park. I had to get out of the car, scan the fob, get back in the car then drive out. Getting out should not need to scan. Many lights did not work, including bedside lights Worst booking and check in process I have ever encountered. We had to go to a convenience store to pick up the key, then find the apartments. Then we had to scroll through emails to find the instructions on the name of the apartment building, the room number, the floor number. Reception was closed, even during office hours. We had emails from comfy and stayz by the dozen. Will probably never stay on the Sunshine Coast again if this is the process we have to go through.

Apartments are individually owned and decorated. We stayed in a superior 2 bedroom apartment (which was actually a sub penthouse apartment). Beautifully renovated. Amazing view out over the ocean and river mouth. Excellent location. Beach right across the road. Walking distance to little supermarket and cafes etc. 5 minute drive to bigger shopping precinct. Underground parking a bit tight for my liking but there was plenty of street parking right out front so that’s where we parked. Simon and partner were super friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay again.

I stayed here for a couple of nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. I'll start with positives. Bed was very comfy. Kitchen was well equipped. Living area was huge. Close to the beach and there's a supermarket nearby. Now on to the negatives. The bathrooms were extremely out dated. My 'ensuite' which was opposite the bedroom, was appalling. The water pressure was non existent. I couldn't use the shower in there so had to use the other one which was marginally better, but not great. Could definitely use renovating. There was alot of loud noise coming from the upstairs apartment (or dodgy pipes) which sounded like furniture constantly being dragged on hardwood floors. It was rather irritating. And as a light sleeper I didn't sleep well the entire time I was there. If it wasn't noise from upstairs it was the sound of running water from what I presume was from the apartment next door but it could quite easily been coming from the apartment I was staying in. The TV in the master bedroom was temperamental, some channels you cannot get. Foxtel worked fine in there though.

We have been to the Chateau Royale on quite a number of occasions. We paid extra for a “superior” room (#48) on the 10th level. The bedding was very comfortable, although the spare blankets looked and smelt like they needed a good wash. The towels were very basic. The furniture was terrible! The cheapest of uncomfortable metal dining chairs, uncomfortable (and dirty) outdoor furniture, and a cheap uncomfortable lounge suite that is fit for the local op shop. The op shops would probably have nicer utensils....hopelessly old useless kitchen tools, blunt knives, mis-matched cutlery and glasses. No nice serving bowls or platters....just horrible! The bathrooms are quite dated with questionable plumbing. The view and position of the hotel is wonderful....but living with sub-standard furniture was so disappointing, resulting in discomfort and sore backs! There was no air conditioning in the bedrooms, only one in the lounge/dining area. There were ceiling fans but they were filthy! The entry door was faulty and did not lock properly at night or when leaving the room....with no security or safe in the room, a bit of a worry!! The room boasted access for Netflix....this was absolutely impossible to access, and never worked for us! (Yes...we are tech savvy). If the hotel is asking top dollar for their superior rooms, then they need to update the units to suit the expense! This was a special holiday with family who don’t usually get to stay in a nice hotel like the Chateau....we are so disappointed!

These units are in a perfect position at Cotton Tree. Close to shops, cafes and surf club. Heaps of things to do. I have stayed at Chateau Royale a few times over the years. Every stay i am not only blown away by the picturesque view, but the exceptional service provided by the managers. Nothing is too difficult for the managers Sandy and Simon, who provide an efficient, professional, yet homely experience. The friendly, approachable and 'nothing too difficult' attitude makes the decision on where to stay on the Sunshine Coast an easy one.

Sandy and Simon could not have been more helpful, very friendly long term Managers of Chateau Royale. What a location, wow. The large units, big balconies, large lounge, kitchen and dining areas. The views, wow, of the river and ocean. We watched the sun rise and sun set and all the boat activities happening on the waterways. A location that is quiet, yet has so much within walking distance. Didn’t use the car. With a Bakery, an amazing Foodworks and many restaurants, it was a wonderful break. The weather was also on our side, just couldn’t have been better. Highly recommend. Lyn and Martin.

I'll start by saying the location is awesome. Not only right near the beach, but close to bakery, chemist, food works etc which is very handy. The pool is very clean but not huge by any means, and the spa is a little bit too intense when the bubbles are on. The place is great for families, our 3 bed apartment was huge. The kitchen was massive and the balcony was really nice, only complaint would be that the furnishings in our apartment for very outdated. It was clean but very tired. Had no issue with the staff, they were friendly enough and didnt take a huge bond as most hotels do.

We’ve stayed at Cotton Tree many times over the years, and Chateau Royale is a firm favourite. It’s location is perfect - five minutes walk from the beach or the shops of Cotton Tree’s main street (fish n chips, cafes, ice cream, clothing shops). There is also a park along the river 10 min walk away. We stayed in a 2bdrm apartment on the 6th floor, and found the views north over the river and beach just stunning. Our apartment’s balcony is where we spent the majority of our time whenever we weren’t out swimming or playing. Because the apartment faces north, the bedrooms don’t get direct early morning sunlight, which is fantastic if you are travelling with kids and don’t want them awake when the sun is. We had well-equipped kitchen, as well as a washing machine and dryer. The bathrooms were a little dated, but clean and perfectly sufficient - plenty of bench space, slightly small shower. The bedrooms and living area were all equipped with their own air conditioners, and the bedrooms also had ceiling fans. The living area was comfortable, and the general décor of the apartment was modern and tasteful. My only disappointment was the double bed in the master bedroom - I’m used to a king at home ;) The pool area must have been refurbished not too long ago, and is also modern and tasteful. It’s not a large pool, but we were there during school holidays and it was fine to share with lots of other families. There’s lots of sunbeds, a bbq area, a hot tub and also some couches and comfy armchairs in a nicely made up area out of the sun. All in all, we love Chateau Royale!
