Location was great, front office lady was nice though the end of the hotel we were staying in was extremely noisy from parties held at the venue on the Saturday night and general street noise that echoed up to the 8th floor. There was very little storage space to put personal items, plus no iron. The day we left, the driveway to the hotel foyer was blocked with 2 cars, so got very wet having to run to catch a cab. Bit messy of the hotel.

Such a lovely hotel. Eccentric without being over the top. Such considered and delightful renovations, keeping the charm of the older, retro-style building but bringing a modern edge. Big, clean rooms and great amenities. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Surfers Paradise.
