The rooms are quite spacious and well equipped. Although the rooms are a little tired it was great for a family with young children as it felt lived in and durable. The carpets need a good steam clean and there were a few minor maintenance issues but nothing so bad that it would put me off staying here again. Our...

My boyfriend and I were so impressed by this place! As two students on a budget, we couldn't believe the value for money we got here! Walking distance from various restaurants, two minute drive from coles + butcher, 20min drive from the theme parks and 20min the other way from the centre of Surfer's Paradise, the parking was included with...

We've stayed here several times. It's a great location, across the road from the river. Close walk to the Grand Hotel and The One where there are plenty of eateries It's about 3 min drive to Harbour Town. I've been here for family stays and I've also been here for girls weekends, suitable for both.

Beautiful setting around the pool, which I loved and it never seemed crowded even though we stayed at a peak period. Nice apartments, rooms large, comfortable lounge & plenty of balconies with tables and chairs. Nice quiet location but near a few restaurants. It just missed the mark unfortunately due to lack of cleanliness. Starting from the staircase. The tiles...

The pros : apartment complex was clean; Handy location to Broadwater, theme parks etc; lovely pool & BBQ area; on site managers were lovely, helpful & obviously working hard to improve things. The cons: our apartment was old & badly in need of an update; balcony furniture & tiles dirty, old & badly stained; negotiating stairs & fire doors when...

What a great little place to stay at, excellent location being 10-15 minutes from theme parks, we purposely stayed just out of surfers because Gold Coast 600 was on so a lot of road closures and slow traffic.. But now we have stayed here will def come again. We had a room looking at the water and was only on...

Ideal for a bit of independence. Secure car parking underground. Quite a lot of stairs if you are on an upper level. All you should need. Washing machine, dryer etc. Very good security. Easy walking to a good hotel for a drink or a meal.

We went with my parents, they had a separate apartment which was very dated & tired compared to ours which was great, it had everything we needed new beds etc. The pool was great for the kids but way too cold for me, didn't feel heated? And the spa was also good but when the bubbles went on the smell...

Warm welcome on arrival. Was sent text message day before saying I could check in at 9am. Personally showed how to access secure carpark. Apartment clean and roomy. Great value for money. Very quiet considering it was fully booked. Will definitely book on my next trip to the Gold Coast.

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. Had a nice big deck upstairs with a nice view. There was plenty of space in the apartment, it was tidy and clean. Be aware it is a self-contained apartment which means you don't get daily servicing (need to wash own towels and supply own toilet paper) which is a bit of a pain...
