Very good 8.0
Had a lovely stay!!
Loved the position and outlook of the hotel and our room. Stunning view over the water and so close to all the amenities of Surfers Paradise. The kitchen was quite outdated but functional. The bathrooms were modern and the beds were comfortable. The indoor pool and spa were great. The outside pool was heated, which was great but it is right next door to a big construction project so we found it not as pleasant out there than we would have liked (noise wise and view). Loved the stunning view from the patio but again, it was a bit noisy, due to the next door construction and some other roadworks going on opposite the hotel. Other than the noise we had a very lovely stay. These negatives comments are not the fault of the Owners & Managers of the Hotel. They can't help someone choosing to build a huge building next door to them!!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS! We stayed here after I had hand surgery following a serious motor vehicle accident. We own a very tall car and after discussion decided that it would not fit under the beam of the car park. After discussing this with reception we arranged to park our car in the visitors car park. As well as being legally blind (I have a white cane) I had my arm in a sling. As I have a disability parking permit we parked in the allocated car space. (Which to our horror was labelled INVALID parking! HAHA)To get into our car I need to use a stool and therefore need a wider than average car space to accomodate my injury. We told reception where we had parked to which she rudely said “this space is for people with a disability, you will need to move your car as other people may want to park there”. Normally I would never use a disabling car space if there was only one however I think we were more than in need. She was EXTREMELY rude and wouldn’t listen to our explanation. We stayed in unit 20C. The unit was quite dirty, the toilets had quite a strong odour of urine and the furniture was falling apart! On top of this, the hotel changes TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS HOLDING DEPOSIT. It took 5 days to get it back. We have travelled extensively both overseas and within Australia and we were horrified with this accomodation. We were informed one morning by a tenant that there had been an evacuation order of the whole building that we knew nothing about.

Overall, not recommended
The location was fantastic, and the ocean views lovely (although not as extensive as in the photos on the website). The apartment was very spacious. While the bathrooms were clean, the rest of the apartment could have been cleaner. Some areas had a lot of built up dust, the couches had old crumbs on them, there were old grapes, dust and dirt under the couches, old empty laundry detergent sachets in the laundry, quite stained bed covers/blankets, turning on the taps to the bath sounded like the pipes were going to come out of the walls and it felt as if the whole apartment could do with a bit of a scrub. The lifts and corridors smelt like cheap toilet spray. The apartment was dated which I didn't mind, but the lack of cleanliness in some areas and the old and stained bed covers was a bit off-putting. The 20 storey apartment block on the north side is currently being pulled down, so there was lots of noise from that from sunrise Monday to Friday (our apartment was on the north side). There is WiFi, but it needs to be purchased. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place, mainly because I would prefer somewhere cleaner.

Poor 2.0
Needs major renovations,
I booked a beach view room well in advance to our stay. We got room 9B which was beach view room, The sliding doors to the long verandah did not close nor lock The ceiling fans looked like they had never been used and had a lot of build up of dust The carpet was very old and also had a lot of dust build up The furniture -lounges and high chairs and table looked like they had been picked up from the side of the road and placed there, My family would not sit on the furniture, it was dirty and disgusting. We go to surfers every year and travelled around the world and this was the worst ever hotel We been to. I called centre management and the manager was helpful and moved us to another room 2 days later.

Unable to use facilities
We were not notified prior to our stay about construction to the indoor pool and spa rendering it completely out of action. Did not get a discount as a result. Had to move rooms due to extreme construction noise. The air conditioners in new room were full of dust and mould and were unable to be used, were slightly cleaned upon complaint but mess left in room for me to clean up.
