It’s a great location if you want to be away from the noise and hussle of Surfer’s but still a convenient walk to the beach. The standard of rooms are extremely poor. Mouldy carpet, popped springs on beds, ripped couch and windows that don’t close properly.

The property was in a great position walking distance to main surfers area cavil Avenue/ beach etc. The “continental breakfast “ was extremely ordinary. Average food, zero service, plastic knives and forks and scape your own plate!!!!! Security in the property was low, anyone off the street could get up to our apartment door. Room was clean and tidy and a great set up for our six people.

Cleanliness standards need to be looked at. Wasn't very clean and we also found a syringe in our apartment down the side of our lounge. We moved to another room and was not very clean. There were things needing to be fixed as well in both apartments. It was disappointing and didnt make our stay pleasant. The on site managers dealt with the situation but it was a bit stressful.

Plastic cutlery used in the restaurant. Breakfast options are very interesting. Front desk doesn’t like to say hello.

I like the location of the property walking distance to surfers paradise and shops. Clean toilet and sheets. Room was comfy. The pillow smells lke sweat. The bed is to single bed combined to make double bed. It is a bit hard in the middle when you can feel the edge of each bed. Other than that we had a nice stay at this place.
