Chateau Beachside

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Adequate for an overnight stay. The staff were not overly friendly, and a $200 deposit on arrival was rather steep. For a longer stay, an extra charge is made for fresh towels, and rooms are only cleaned weekly. Unfortunately, we were on the first floor so couldn't leave sliding doors open overnight to take advantage of sea breeze, as it didn't feel safe to do so. Best thing was waking up in morning, and walking across road to swim in surf.

This hotel is definitely in an awesome location with amazing views, but rooms are very outdated and could do with some work We paid for city view but could see the beach out our hotel windows too which was awesome The room had no aircon and the fan didn’t work very well so it does get hot, tried to open windows at night but it can be very noisy The bathroom also had no fan so get very stuffy in there. free wifi= 100mb a day so don’t go nuts when you login. Very basic but if you want a cheap place for the location this is it I also did enjoy the pool and spa area ! Last thing is, when you pay your $200 deposit (yes that much) it takes 10 days to get back to you so make sure you have extra money on

Great price and location for a quick one or two night stay but I wouldn't stay there for a holiday. The building is very old, the curtains don't block out the bright night time lights, and the street noise is very loud through the night.

Nice hotel that is in a fantastic location. Very close to the beach and in walking distance of lots of nice restaurants and shops. The room was huge and had a great view. The pool and spa were very nice. The only letdown was no air conditioning, and a lot of the things such as beach towel hire, wifi etc they charge extra for. I think with the wifi you get like 100mb free and then have to pay, which is a bit ridiculous.

My partner and I stayed her for 7nights. Staff were friendly upon check in, carpark was easy enough to get into. The views are amazing! We were on the 9th floor and was a beautiful view of the beach and pool. Spas + pool were great.! Good facilities like gym, games room and laundry etc! The room was nice and tidy with everything you need & the bed was super comfy!! Such a great location with everything close by and the beach across the road. The only let downs was no air con - if you open the sliding doors you get a great breeze but air con would have just taken the bite out of the humidity and the wifi would rarely connect and when it did was super slow. Apart from those things, it was a very enjoyable weeks stay. Thank you :)

A very comfy hotel that is just steps away from the BEACH.. and there is plenty of good food nearby. Absolutely lovely and enjoyed my stay. Room was huge with nice view. It was almost a apartment styled room with a large living area where u can just chill and have a drink watching telly after a tiring day on the out side..

Great location, right at the beach. Booked this for a quick and cheap weekend away, and boy did I get what I paid for! Check in desk isn't open late, and it seemed like a bother to get to to complete a late check-in. No instructions on how to do this (anywhere), and when I called they seemed perturbed. I did catch the desk staff, and check in was actually easy..... and then..... Check out is 10am. 10AM. I asked for later check-out options and was told for $10/hr I can check out anytime after. I paid for a room, not an hourly room. I told them no thanks. They offered me popcorn. Yes, they seemed to think this was a big selling point. POPCORN?! There were 2 bags in the room too. I should have eaten it, as it was the ONLY free thing in here. WIFI.... it's a SCAM! They offer 100mg of "free wifi". What can you do with that: Open your Email and check it. Once you open Facebook, you're over and asked to PAY for additional WIFI. This is so that on any website they can say "they offer free WIFI". You've been WARNED. SCAM! No AIR CONDITIONING. I wouldn't stay here during the SUMMER! Melting hot! Laundry $4 to wash, $4 to dry..... OUCH! Oh, and they have an agreement with the next door restaurant for $10 breakfasts. I went and paid the restaurant directly and it was only $0.90 more ($10.90). Yes, you can save a $1! Wooo, a whole $1! Not to deal with this lot, no thanks! My next trip to the Gold Coast I would avoide this place! It's a money pit and you may get a good "rate" but it includes very VERY little!

I selected this place for my honeymoon stay in Goldcoast after lots of research and the best decision so far. We opted for sea view room in was given a ropom in 13th floor. The room has two glass wall and the outside view is fully visble from your bed. Before selecting this place one need to understand that this a service apartment and should not expect hotel like facilities.

Rooms weren't cleaned when we arrived at 2pm. Very basic accommodation but so near to the beach and handy to Cavill Ave. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Not flash but fun for the weekend. Good steam room & communal spa.

We stayed one night here before checking into the Marriott. Of course the two can't compare however this place had the most amazing views of the beach across the road from all rooms including the toilet. It's views compensate for the fact that it's below average and has no air con. Our toddler daughter enjoyed it and loved the free popcorn at the reception. Thank you for a nice stay.
