The place would be nice if they did some work on maintaining it. The cold tap in the bathroom basin didn't work and the towel rail was only connected by one screw so unusable. The ceiling in the bathroom was also covered in mould. The air conditioner appeated to be about 20 years old and held together by sticky tape. It was noisy and not very cold unfortunately. I was working on the Gold Coast for a week and it definitely wasn't worth the money. I wouldn't recommend staying there until the place is renovated or sold.

No availability to amenties - Work commence at 6am on property by contractors - no notification that propert was under construction renovations and also nearby construction - too far from shops and Caville avenue - cigerette burns on floor - fans wobble and make noise - extra furniture in room like two coffee tables in small area - Book elsewhere as no value here.

Rooms smelled musty. My girlfriend has severe asthma. Matress was old with no dustmite cover. One night stay and my girlfriend was in hospital for hours. Unable to stay for the 4 nights booked due medical reasons. Hotel has refused to refund the difference. Will not stay again.

Rooms are very small, in particular the bathroom, where the door can't be closed or opened very easily. Toilet seat cover wouldn't stay up as it was supposed to. The wifi reception was dismal. One of the overhead lights didn't work since the lamp was blown. I wouldn't recommend this place at all.
