Stayed here for a quiet weekend and the new managers are so accommodating, they are really trying to turn this place around they just need the help of the owners, the managers can only do so much, it doesn't take much to improve the looks of a unit but the managers can't spend owners money, close to great club for...

My partner and I booked in to stay for 5 nights at the end of January but had to cancel for personal reasons, Katy has been very helpful and understanding throughout the cancelation process. Would definitely stay here if we get another chance to get back to the Gold Coast

My only qualsm being the dish-washer didn't work,but the fact that unlike a lot of other hotels in the area it'd everything you need in the spacious apartment with a number of bedrooms available for people staying alone or not..Also,the bed was a bit small for a double & it'd wheels on it so I think that might be different...

Ok the reviews you may have read are not all truly correct. Yes, this place is not a 5 star. An older apartment which does need improvement, but is worth the stay & money.The swimming pool /BBQ area was clean. I stayed in 7C unit (fan operated, not air con) which faced out towards the sea, great sea breeze while...

Maybe the rest of the place isn't much better, but definitely don't let them put you in apartment 12A. At the time of booking, in October, one of the admittedly few air conditioned apartments was requested and agreed upon- we didn't get one and there was neither an explanation nor an apology. Management seemed genuinely apologetic about the condition of...

Absolutely the most horrible service you have ever had. I was presented with a below standard room which stank to high heaven. Maybe a $50 a night backpacker room would have been better than this. Absolutely NO refund offered and almost immediately became unfriendly when making the complaint. Beware as even if you cancel after booking they will charge your...

We booked the room through bookings.com the picture they used is nothing like the room we were given, room 8A was what we were given. On check in I stupidly paid for our 8 days stay without inspecting the room first, big mistake! As the reception refused to give us a refund. Each apartment is individually owned, we were unlucky...
