Great place, great location.

Recently stayed with my wife and two small children and found this place to be a little gem. The room had great views and was surprisingly quiet even with facing the busy road. We'll definatly be back again.

Average

Comfortable beds, amenities were not 100 working or available as announced, same as some products. Kids stay for free special is a joke as you have to argue with reception to get extra sheets to make the sofa bed (They were asking for $40 extra to get the sofa bed sheets for us) Good location, very mediocre service.

beautiful spa

We went to surfers for a relaxing getaway. The spa at the hotel certainly lived up to expectations however the supposed recent renovations and upgrade to superior rooms was not so good. New sheets and cushions do brighten the room but the sticky dirty carpet did not make the room feel luxurious. The hotel corridors also need cleaning up, especially the carpets. I would not consider this a four star hotel.

Don't Expect Luxury

Clean, pretty good bed and pillows. Nice pool. Below average gym. Only a small bar fridge in the room. No ice machine in the hotel at all. I thought this was one of the luxury hotels of Surfers Paradise. If you're not expecting that, and you're expecting average, that's exactly what you'll get. Don't overpay!

Great Hotel

We had an amazing stay here. We had been traveling throughout Australia for 2 weeks and this was by far the best one yet. The rooms were very clean along with the bathrooms. They had laundry facilities as well as a good gym for a hotel and we right down the street from the beach and the strip.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Across the street at the Q1 they have an aazing observation floor and bar. It cost $21 to get in but if you go about 30 minutes before sunset you can grab some drinks and watch the sunset behind the mountains with the best view on the gold coast.
