I really enjoyed our stay. I did however recommend my manager to stay here also as we were all heading to our Xmas party and her room was very below average. Her bed was two singles together and the weren’t even the same height. Her carpet was very old and smelt musty. There was cigarette ash everywhere. Patch ups on doors and walls. Looked like a bunch of hooligans had been staying there and you needed to do a quick cover up.

Staff are lovely, the pool area and gym overlooks the canal while higher levels have a sea view and we can't wait to come back to try the new Korean Buffet. Great for families and close to everything.

Really nice, good value apartment right in the middle of surfers paradise. It was close to everything and had free parking which was great since the parking situation in surfers wasn't great - so being able to walk everywhere while leaving the car at the hotel was helpful. Pool was great and the apartments were very nice and spacious - we had the river view one and the balcony was lovely. However the kitchen was a bit low on cooking utensils and they could have done with some new ones as they weren't the cleanest. Free breakfast was great and staff were friendly. Only thing that we were surprised about was that there was a $200 deposit when we got there that we didn't know about prior to. If you gave in cash, you got it back when you left so that was fine. Would recommend.

We arrived at 2pm to check in to be told our room was not ready. We continued to wait and kept being told the room was still being cleaned. We were not given the key to our room until 4:15 pm! We were not offered any compensation for their incompetency. The family room was still dirty, old, cockraches in the kitchen, well used furniture, bathroom old and mouldy tiles in shower. Large window curtains could not be shut a there was one large curtain missisng. I'm glad breakfast was free because it was mediocre. Plastic cutlery only, old fruit and needed to pay extra $1 for a real coffee. Family room was large and shower had good water pressure-best thing about the room. Woman at front desk not friendly and unwavering about price and compensation. Very disappointing

Pool and location of a 5 star resort, 10 min walk from Cavill mall and infinity etc, but poor room conditions. It’s a comfy place to sleep but lacks tv reception, shower head squirts in every other direction, and the carpets were pretty average. 10/10 would stay again, based on location and extremely cheap pricing, great for schoolies or if you aren’t planning on spending much time in your room. Also hotel staff were really friendly and helpful, and the buffet in the lobby had awesome food!!
