Had a lovely stay with my partner, would have liked to stay longer. The room was clean and comfy. We got a really cheap deal on wotif, very affordable. The restaurants were a little expensive but then the food was delicious. The location was perfect, short walk to cavil ave. The only negative was the bathroom looked a little grotty,...

Cant beat the location for the price, I was told parking was extra but wasnt charged for it. Modern, clean, just needs free wifi! I was told there is 2 pools, I only saw 1, but I didnt look for the other 1. The pool area needs an upgrade, but theres nothing wrong with the pool/spa itself. I liked that...

This hotel would have to be one of the best to stay at in Surfers Paradise! So central and such lovely staff! We stayed on level 10 with an excellent view of partial beach but mainly the Q1 tower. My only problem was the lack of noise proofing as we could hear everything the people around us were doing. Also...

Having stayed in hotels all over the world, the watermark is nice and it presents well. However the room fittings and fixtures leave you with a dated feeling. The bathrooms are old style shower over bath. All in all a nice place, but make sure you get it on a special.

On the edge of Surfers Paradise, this great value hotel with better-than-expected bedrooms and wood-floor bathrooms (the Trip Advisor traveller photos don't do it justice) is right beside the tram stop (with access to Broadbeach, currently-being-renovated Pacific Fair shopping centre, and Jupiters casino), a block away from a taxi stop (near Q1 and Skypoint Observation Deck), and is within easy...

Strong sickening smell of air freshener all through the hallways, it was so over powering. Our room smelt like a sewer and our toilet was leaking, the maintenance man tried to fix it on two separate occasions then said it couldn't be fixed. We had to change rooms and there was still sewer smell in our new room even three...

Great position. Walking distance to cavil avenue, shops and restaurants. Best thing was the tram stop was right outside the hotel which made it really easy to arrive to and from the airport. Also having the tram so close made it easy to get casino, pacific fair,and Broadbeach. I had a room facing towards the beach which gave me a...

Great value, central location to the beach and pubs, friendly staff. Rooms are very clean and up to date in decor. Parking is ridiculous, the price for a second car per room is $50 which is unjustifiable
