Disappointing stay

Not as expected. Only good point about this hotel is its location. It is located in the heart of surfers paradise and very convenient to all facilities. But facilities in the hotel are good for only 2 stars.

Noisy, poor service

Room was not cleaned throughout the stay, towels and bedding weren't washed, rubbish wasn't taken out. The walls were paper thin, it was very noisy, our neighbours were blasting music until 5am, and trying to drunkedly break into our room, which the staff did nothing about. Location was perfect, right in the centre of surfers paradise. Some rooms had a washing machine, while others had a proper kitchen, it seems that this was not detailed or chosen, but given at random. Shower door was broken, as was the deadbolt on the front door, door bell, and a leaking tap.

Holiday.

The first room we were given was so dirty we were shocked, the curtains were in tatters and the lounge ripped there was still food in the oven on a tray from a very long time ago ,the light didn't work in the bathroom so we had to put the lounge room lamp in there so we could see. The night manager could do nothing so gave me cleaning products so I could clean and we could stay the first night as it was too late to go elsewhere and reception isn't open after 1pm on Sunday. We spoke to the manager the next morning and were given another room....much better but still in disrepair,ill equipped and not totally clean. We have stayed previously in this hotel and were totally shocked that it could be let run down to that extent, it is in one of the best positions on the Gold Coast.

Ok tri6

When I booked I advised that I wanted 2 room apartment. I said there was a child under 12 months, to find no access to reception and the street pram friendly. Corridor very narrow. Lift same. Not user friendly at all

10/10 for location

stayed 3 nights and couldnt of got a better location, walking distance to everything and veiw from room was stunning. pretty dated room but perfect for the price we paid. pool was nice and so was service. claims to have 24 hour reception but really 9-5 . even though we paid months ago they sprung a $200 refundable deposit on us without notice which dug into spending money which sucked. limited car spaces ( twice we parked in the street) wifi was terrible but all in all we would probably stay again

Second visit to the Beachcomber Resort - different to the first time

As our first experience staying at the Beachcomber Resort in 2014 was a somewhat pleasant one, we were hoping for the same experience the second time around - this is what happened with us: For the period of time that we were staying, only 2 out of the 3 lifts were operating and this meant excessive wait times for all using the lift. We were staying on the 19th floor this time. Last time were were even higher on the 29th floor. The room itself was clean and the ocean views were picture perfect. However, seeing things such as two single beds joined together to make a double bed, and then little things such as the cold water tap in the shower not being secure like the hot water tap was, the hot water sometimes going cold (probably due to the neighbouring room using all the hot water prior to us having a chance to), the fact we could hear the noise coming from the neighbouring room late at night (especially with kids making the noise and the parents not doing anything to respect other guests who were trying to sleep) or the shower screen being 'off track' when we first arrived (this was promptly fixed) - and not seeing a washing machine or dryer in the bathroom area (which we did on our first visit) did prove a little disappointing on our second visit but it shouldn't be the main reason why not to stay here. Don't get me wrong but there is shared coin-operated laundry facilities adjacent to the basement car park - but I did not want to use this. I've always taken my own wireless internet (WiFi) on my travels and in regards to staying here, I recommend to do the same as the WiFi only applies to the ground floor and not the higher floors at this location. I was hoping to give the Beachcomber Resort a better review on this occasion - as per the same time last year, but the feeling of sleeping in the centre of the double bed and feeling where the single beds joined up wasn't comfortable at all. Would we stay there a third time? Maybe. Depending on the time of year, I can confirm the value for money and the location of the Beachcomber Resort is the main reasons why we have stayed there on our last 2 trips to the Gold Coast.
