Great Location

The Beachcomber Resort is in a great location with a great view, but thats where it stops. The rooms ( we stayed in 2) are badly in need of maintenance, all taps dripping or unable to turn off, shower doors broken, the beds should have been thrown out ten years ago and both rooms we stayed in did not have a full length mirror. These rooms are 2 x star at very best.

Worst hotel we've ever stayed in, disappointed.

The room was not like the pictures at all!!! We were totally misled. It was very old & had an unbearable smell of faeces. There were small, live cockroaches crawling on the towels the towels had hair on them & were unusable. The bed was sunken & uncomfortable the sheets & blankets had stains & hairs on them like they hadn't been washed. The fridge froze all our food even on the lowest setting. The ironing board didn't have a cover on it so we couldn't use it. We ran out of toilet paper at night & no one topped it up in the daytime, we had to run around looking for toilet paper & ended up using our own tissues - there was no tissue box in the room either. Wi-Fi didn't work outside the vicinity of the lobby. To top it up, there was a suspicious character known to the hotel who followed us off the lift. It was worse & most uncomfortable experience ever. Didn't see the need for a $200 holding fee that we were not informed about prior. We eventually had to ask for a different room because we couldn't stand the faeces smell anymore. We were so tempted to go to Soul or the Hilton if we weren't out of the room most of the day.

Disappointed

Having stayed and enjoyed our stays at The Beachcomber 3 times previously in the last 12 months I was very disappointed with the room we were allocated (2904). The bathroom was very poor, the bed and lounge uncomfortable. The kitchen drawers were off their tracks due to water damage. We were required to wash up & pack away dishes, which is ok if a half decent plug, a brush & sufficient dish washing liquid is supplied. A hygiene issue for sure. Damage to the door which made locking difficult. The views as always great, but if you are allocated this room ask for another, if we'd been staying more than 3 nights we certainly would have. The neglect from the owner of this unit reflects poorly on the other owners maintaining their units to good standards. Our experience would probably preclude The Beachcomber from future consideration for our frequent stays on the GC.

Great accommodation

Great friendly and helpful staff in reception! One thing good to know that we knew before hand from reading reviews is that the free wifi is only available down in reception not in rooms. Excellent view from our room of the ocean. Location is so handy to mall which also has a supermarket. Public transport also is close by. All round great experience!!!!

Excellent location

Value for money.A bath tub in a one bedroom apartment is a rare find.Everything we needed for a self contained family holiday was in the apartment.The only down side was the BBQ area could do with a make over.Will be staying there again soon.

Terrible

We were looking online for a hotel that accepted payments from PayPal... Upon arrival we were told we needed to pay $200 deposit for the room...the decor and furniture for the room looked like it had come from the Op shop so we don't know why you would need a $200 deposit. Then after paying the $200 deposit we found out that we needed to check out early, so how would we get our deposit back, the staff told us that other than checking out a day early to get our cash back, they would deposit it into our bank account the day we checked out! It took a phone call and email, 2 days later to Ask where our deposit was for it to be put in our bank account.
