During happy hour, it took just under an hour to find a staff member to serve us. The bar was completely unattended. Reception staff were very helpful.

Spacious family room with shower. No mini bar but there is a vending machine alternative. Buffet breakfast was nice, with a relaxed canteen like feel. No activities/ extras offered for kids unlike mentioned on website. Weather too cold and wet to use facilities. Overall was nice.

The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Location is excellent. There were no problems with parking and I did wonder if it would be the same during school holidays etc.

Was close to Cavil Ave. Room was not clean was built up fur on air conditioning outlets and fire suppression system, air conditioning inlet was mouldy. Holes in the walls in bathroom and tap on sink broken. Overall not what I was expecting but was only looking for a place to sleep after exploring GC with family.

Staff were so rude and not helpful at all. Our room has no safe and when we told reception they laughed in our face. Food was average especially considering how much we paid.

Dear Madeline, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience following your recent stay at Novotel Surfers Paradise, I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations, please allow me to express my apologies. I am sorry that your room did not contain a safe and I have shared your feedback with the Guest Welcome Manager as this is certainly not the response expected from our Team when our guests report an issue and I am very sorry for this occurrence. I am also disappointed that you did not enjoy your dining experience in the Hotel. I appreciate your sharing your comments Madeline and it is my hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the future. Best Regards, Paul Morton General Manager Novotel Surfers Paradise

Our stay was no fuss and room clean and useful. We were very happy but the shower kept leaking out all over the floors and creating a wet mess. Waiting for a lift in the morning was difficult, we waited 20mins before deciding to use the stairs.
