“NICE BUT TOO CLOSE TO TAVERN”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

We stayed at the Elysium Apartments a couple of years ago and are now returning to Palm Cove so thought I would check their reviews. The majority of people who wrote these reviews must not have had the same apartment as us, as the main bedroom was extremely noisy from the tavern - not patrons but dumping of bottles, dumpmaster etc. Have found other reviews with similar problem so will look elsewhere. Apartments very clean and nice, however the noise did distract for us.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is not on the Tavern side.

Thanks Jrr55 Melbourne for your review, we are sorry to hear that you experienced any noise from the Tavern next door because of the dumping of bottles, dumpmaster etc. This is a very rear experience for our guests as we have not had any other guest mention Bottles being dumped or dumpmaster before in any review, in fact us Managers live on the same side of the Tavern & have only on 1 occasion in 3 1/2 years ever heard this ourselves before. We are sad to hear you say that you will stay elsewhere, and if you would like to stay with us again we will make sure we put you in an apartment on the other side of the building. We are pleased though to see you were happy with the apartment otherwise. Hope to see you in the future.

We have just returned from a stay at the Elysium Apartments in Palm Cove. The 2 bedroom apartment was very clean, with totally up dated appliances and bedding. My family was very comfortable, and my 3 children loved the pool. Our balcony was large and we overlooked a quiet street with beautiful views of the mountains. Roger and Jocelyn were so helpful with advice, bookings and making us feel at home at the Elysium. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment overlooking the quiet street.

Thank you Maxas_12 New Jersey for your nice review.

It was great to have you stay with us and talk about your country etc. We are pleased to see you mention about our apartments being totally updated with appliances and bedding as we have just done a refurbishment even though the apartments are only 6 years old. We are glad to hear that you family loved the pool and that you also loved the apartment you were in. Thank you very much for saying you highly recommend our hotel, and we hope to see you sometime in the future.

We had a fantastic stay in the 2 bedroom apartment. It's just off the main street so not noisy or busy but still a close to walk to cafe and restaurants. The room are very spacious with great facilities. Great value for money. Management is extremely helpful and friendly. Thanks Jocelyn and Roger for a lovely stay and great introduction to FNQ!

This was our first visit to Palm Cove and we were very happy with our choice to stay at Elysium Apartments. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful, even with assisting in our accommodation on the Gold Coast. The apartment was spacious,well equipped and very clean. Located just off the main beach front road meant it was very quiet and private. We often had the pool area to ourselves. We would love to stay there again. Thanks for making our holiday so memorable.

Thank you Janet M Perth for your review. It was great to hear you had a memorable holiday, you don't have to thank you us though as it was a privilege to meet you and help with whatever we could, hope that Gold Coast hotel special was worth it. We also hope to see you again in the near future.
