Awesome will definiteky stay again!

Pros: We loved everything from the welcoming smikes of the reception staff, the pool and the rooms and balcony. Very comfortable chairs in the balcony.
Cons: The parking should be free like most hotels rather than charging $15.
Location: Location was great just a little out from the noisy heart of surfers. Close to the casino where we had dinner.
We stayed on the 12th floor. Beautiful views, very ckean room and the reception staff were excellent and welcoming. Our girls swam in the pool and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We didnt eat dinner there but the buffet breakfast on the revolving restaurant was our highlight. Beautiful breakfast with the best view of the Gold Coast. My only gripe is that we had to pay $15 for the parking whereas most hotels we stay at that is free.

Great Location

Pros: Staff is very friendly and willing to help at anytime. Food of Bar and restaurants inside the hotel are very nice and fair price. love the pool.
Cons: Bed is too soft, as we used to king bed so hopefully in future you have selection of rooms with different bed option. Cleaning needs to be improved.
Location: Location is great, close to tram station and beach
We booked through Wotif and stayed 6 nights in this hotel. We requested firm bed on the booking but it didn't happen. First night we didn't have mush sleep due to the bed problem. Room is clean in general, but needs to be improved as you can find dirt on bedside table and top of bed headboards. However overall we are satisfied with hotel location, facility and staff.

Could be better

Cons: Attention to detail when it comes to cleanliness.
Location: The G tram is located right outside the hotel, and there's one available every 10-15 minutes (max) which takes you north to Cavill Ave.
The photos are deceiving. On approach, the hotel appears to be neglected from outside compared to the other hotels available in Surfers. Room was given to us 3 hours earlier, which was a positive. However, as soon as you step into the room you get hit by an overwhelming stench of old wood and mould. A face towel, provided by the hotel after the room being serviced, did not appear to be washed as it had a pretty nasty stain on it that looked like faeces. The shower head is also rubbish and does not stay in place which makes it incredibly difficult to keep a consistent stream of water running onto you. The hotel pool was pretty dirty and seemed to be poorly maintained. Hotel is definitely far too overpriced for what it is.

Nice Hotel close to beach

Pros: We had twin deluxe Room so my husband and I had our own bed which was a new experience. Very pleased you offered complimentary parking.
Cons: 2 for 1 breakfast buffet deals. In July we stayed in Paradise Centre and we had a gourmet breakfast at Seaduction the Soul every morning for $35 total
Location: Although tram station was available walking to Cavill daily was too difficult 30 minutes each way.
Nice Hotel close to beach but too far to Cavill Mall. First time in a hotel, normally stay in self contained. Bar Fridge far too small and full of hotel drinks.Would like some room for personal drinks and items. Although sheets and pillow cases were freshly changed and clean there was an odour coming from the quilt and pillows. Also there was no top sheet under quilt which was strange and something we have not experienced before in any accommodation. Have stayed in over 12 hotels in recent years. Not many Fox channels were available and 94 LIFE was not even tuned in.

Nice hotel great pool and spa area

Pros: Close to beach, restaurants and shopping.
Cons: Beds need to be updated regularly, staff need to give more information and cleanliness needs to improve
Location: Close to beach and everything iconic to the gold coast
The room was very nice with a balcony overlooking the pool area. The bed in our room was a king size as requested, but it was very uncomfortable, maybe old. Only a short walk to the beach, also the light rail is at the door. The staff were friendly but not enough information given. When we were leaving I saw a sign advertising late check out for an extra fee. I would of gladly done this but nobody told us at check in. Also there was an extra fee for parking with was not explained on the booking site. Overall we had a great time.
