Reasonable quality & priced

Pros: Price paid was good for the high season.
Cons: Room needed to be properly clean and a small removed. Also the toilet seat was loose and noisey air conditioning.
Location: Location ok
The room was ok, but did have a distinct smell that was not great and the air conditioning was noisey. I think breakfast, continental was way over priced.

Great place to stay, will stay again.

Pros: We liked it as it was away from the craziness at Surfers and Broadbeach.
Cons: Great undercover carpark, just need to sort out the sparrows. We noticed the wire put up but need to dispose of them another way..
Location: Location was great for us as we were attending the Magic Millions. Plenty of golf courses in the area...
The rooms were furnished modern and very clean, staff were all friendly especially in the restaurant, meals were great.

Nice place

Booked last minute for overnight stay, conveniently located, a little dated but the rate was excellent. Would recommend. Worth noting is the abundance of birds in the underground car park at night... quite a sight.

Staff very helpful

Although we had the room up graded. The original booking was for Standard Room, 2 Queen Beds The room only had king bed & pullout double which was broken & replaced with single roller bed. Which made the room quite small as there was four people in the room.

Great location and pretty golf course views

Great place to stay with kids, pool area a big hit and happy hour is a lovely touch for the grown ups. The room was comfortable, didn’t dine in the restaurant other than the buffet breakfast which was a little disappointing for the high price. Nevertheless I would stay here again.

Nice family stay

Good overall initial room given was not so great and seemed bit old and plain and parking was an issue even though we had booked two rooms it was a struggle to find a undercover parking spot next night we had an outbreak of ants in our bathtub we called the hotel staff to inspect they were very cooperative and provided a quick replacement in the night and even threw I in a complimentary breakfast which made kids happy overall not too bad even after these stories
