Great price for the location.

The room itself was comfortable but nothing luxurious. However the location is amazing for anytime nighttime activities in Surfers Paradise as you can walk everywhere and save on taxi's. Staff were wonderful!!!!

Nice couples weekend

Room was clean and comfortable, but a bit small. Accessible outlets for charging electronics were spars. The room doors SLAMMED which became very annoying in the morning especially. The location was fantastic! We were on the 16th floor facing the river. The balcony afforded a beautiful view. It was a great place to sit and have an evening cocktail. Across the street were all types of restaurants and shops, and nighttime entertainment. Two short blocks down and you were on the beach. Lots of lifeguards and designated swimming versus surfing areas. Overall a great place to leave the car in the secure car park and just have fun!

Terrible housekeeping

Probably best if they start planning on installing wifi that can be accessed in rooms . And make it free , it's what's the competition is all about now . The 30 mins free wifi Access per device in the lobby every 24 hours is a joke... I never seen a room cleaning service much terrible than this . They just fold the matress like the way I did when I wake up still drunk. They don't mop the floor . I have no idea , probably , that's their standard . I can't believe such a terrible housekeeping service ..

More than we expected

This hotel was more like a fully-furnished apartment. Had all the amenities we were looking for. Only stayed one quick night, but would definitely return.

Great place to stay with nice views

This is a great place to stay and we had an amazing inland view of Chevron Island and the river. The staff was very friendly and even helped us get a lower rate. The only downside is that there is no wifi in the rooms but there is in the lobby.

I have to say...

After reading some of the reviews I was just hoping for an alright experience with this hotel. After spending 9 days there, I was blown away by the overall friendliness of all the staff. My room was done up everyday and always neat and the location cannot be beat. This hotel was one of the brightest parts of my trip and I do not think you can go wrong booking a room here.

Great value

I was a bit worried booking this hotel as the room rates were very reasonable. Nice surprise on arrival! The room was large and clean with a balcony and river views. Furnishings looking a bit tatty in places, but nothing that bothered me. Walls a bit thin, so somewhat noisy. Friendly helpful staff and a great location near buses and Central Surfers.
