Excellent views - nothing between the hotel and the ocean and we caught sight whales while we were there. Right next to the beach, surfers stores and restaurants but also the bars which wasn't so good past midnight (unless of course the bars are why you are there). On the whole, very run down - even the view isn't compensation enough for the poor quality of accommodation considering there are much more up to date properties very close by for a similar rate.

There are many reasons to stay at this hotel. Early check-in, late check-out, lovely pool area, nice restaurant on the ground floor and of course the fabulous views over Main and Surfers Beaches out to the ocean. I would love to give this hotel more than 2 stars, particularly because the staff are so nice but there is just no getting around the terrible condition of the rooms. Think three stars and you're probably doing them a favour. The rooms are in desperate need of renovation. Having said that, if you're just looking for somewhere to get your head down after a good night out this is an option to consider. Having a room that you have to make do with, rather than enjoy probably isn't worth the few dollars you would save going elsewhere.

Room Tip: Call and ask for early check in and late check out - small extra charge but worth

WOW is all you can say when you enter the unit and look at the view.
We just stayed 4 nights in a 1 b/r appt. We will admit after reading some of the reviews , we were slightly worried. Yes, it may be an older complex , however we could not fault it. On arrival the reception was 5 star with the friendliest attitude. The unit was spacious , clean and modern.
Talk about a Loo with a View. This is unbeatable. The cafe / bar downstairs was excellent. Only a short walk to Orchid Ave & Cavill Mall. We could not fault the Chateau.
Our comment is dont hesitate to stay at the Chateau. Not sure what is wrong with those who wrote bad reviews as our experience was 5 Star with the affordability of a 3.
Thank you to all at the Chateau Beachside.

:) We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean views. We were on level 18 and the views were spectacular

Chateau Beachside Apartments is exactly what it says, if i was a little younger i might have been able to throw a rock onto main beach in surfers paridise from my room. I stayed there with my wife in room 1505 a queen studio apartment, i had to have a double take when the very helpfull receptionist told me $89.00 a night (August 27 2012) including security parking, i thought she meant $89.00 each but no it was for the 2 of us, unbelievable value in the heart of surfers.
The Apartments where large, airy and spotlessly clean, full size kitchen, dining and lounge with big lcd tv and dvd player, the television incorporates foxtell with a large range of local tv programes.
the view from our room was east north east and during the day nothing short of sensational and of a night absolutely breathtaking. if you want value for money in the heart of surfers paradise right on the beach i highly recomend Chateau Beachside, follows is a brief account of what Chateau Beachside offers it's guests.

DVD players in all rooms
Complimentary DVD Hire (over 100 titles)
Free WiFi (50mb/day) - hot spots inc reception & public areas
Kindle E-Book Daily Hire
