horrible stay

My room and parts of the hotel smelt and was dirty not good if u are staying for more than 3 days there is no room service (room cleaning) with fresh linen and towels so u either have to wash them or buy extra(extra cost) no toilet paper provided only what's in room already (another hidden extra cost) same with basic coffee, tea, sugar and milk that is normally provided...Price for the room was cheap per night but when you add up all the extra little cost your beta of spending that little extra for something nicer and comfortable and clean....Overall the location was the best thing about the whole stay it's not nice when you are sick for most of your holiday rant over

Very enjoyable

Stayed here for a week in a one bedroom, very happy with stay.reception was a bit slow but room was lovely on a high level. Both pools and spa were great. Hotel just up from beach and opposite main shopping centre which was excellent. Would definitely stay again.

Fantastic Family Apartment for 2

The location is awesome just a street across to the shopping mall and supermarket filled with everything you need for long period of stays. Its also next to a long stretch of restaurants and shops. Its just next to the beautiful fantastic beach! 5mins walk! Staff are very pleasent and helpful to provide any information you need. There's a small outdoor pool, a small indoor pool, a Jacuzzi and a suana. You can do your laundry at the basement for a small price. Just get alot of AU$1coins. For its low pricing Gym with multistations and basic treadmill and cycle. Theres aircon/heater supered for warm or cooling. There's a kitchen with microwave, fridge and freezer compartment, stove with oven! Kitchen utensils are available but you will need to clean them or get new ones if you are staying for longer than 3days. Room is fairly clean.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buying everything you need from the supermarket! Cook your own meal and you can save up hundreds of dollars. Use the public buses to get around to all attraction. Its much much cheaper than taxi.

It was supposed to be 5 days of relaxation and quiet

This stay was between 2 conferences in different cities, we thought it would be great to have 5 days at the Gold Coast to relax. On searching for and booking a hotel we had a couple of criteria: ocean view, a spa/hot tub not necessarily in the room just in the hotel, close to Cavill Ave and price friendly. We came across beachcomber and it ticked all the criteria so we booked. We were also realistic and knew for the price it was not going to be the ritz so to speak. On checking in the staff member was lovely and jovial. On entering the room we were really pleased, the room aspect was great and view was awesome. The unit was a little dated but clean. The tiles and fixtures in the bathroom/laundry are really dated but again clean and it took me back to holidays as a kid. The king size bed looked like two singles put together and you could see the sag or indents for the want of a better word in the bed. The bed was fine for an afternoon nanna nap but a whole night sleep and you felt how uncomfortable it was. This was the worst thing about the room, if it had a bed then I would have scored the room comfort higher. The first day we went across to Woolies got a few things then just relaxed. The next day we were woken just before 7 with banging and hammering, then it sounded like a sander. this pretty much went all day until about 6pm. During the day we thought we would go for a spa only to find the spa sitting out of the ground and out of order obviously. So we went for a swim. The next day again more hammering and sanding although I guess we were lucky it was a Sunday and they waited until just after 8. Lucky enough it only lasted about two and a half hours. Monday morning nice and early it all started again. We mentioned it to the guy at reception and he said there are privately owned units and it's the owners prerogative, then tried to tell us the 5th floor was having work done and even though noise travels it would have been minimal to us. We were on the 21st floor and said come and sit in our room and tell us it is minimal or even that it is from the 5th floor. Of course that didn't happen. and this went on in to the evening. The 2nd time we went to use the pool there was a staff member there and we asked about the spa saying it was one of the reasons we booked. We were told it had been like that for a while. A resident of the building was in the pool and said it had been a couple of months. that was disappointing perhaps the website should say when amenities are out of action. By checking out after the 5th night we were over the banging, hammering and sanding sounds all day. The view and location were great.

I stayed here after a death in the family and thought I would just have a nice nightaway and relax however it was really upsetting . The room was dirty with bearly a few of the ocaen the bed had spring which stuck into you and made noise when you moved around. Tv did notwork and they ccouldn't fix it .heated pool was slimy and just felt dirty . Spa is totally out of the ground and when I asked they said it had been out of order for months but this is not told when you book . anyway it was very disappointing and upset me more then before I went away .

Value for price

Location of this hotel was just awesome couldn't have asked for anything better. The room was a little aged but not a concern to us, bed was so comfortable and a view to die for!!!!! Security was great and felt very safe. Was a little saddened that the spa was out of action and that the indoor pool wasn't heated to my liking but I Would definitely stay again and would recommend to others.

Long weekend Gold Coast

Great location with Ocean views, large rooms for 1 Brm apartment, facilities are older but represented by price. Unfortunately we had no hot water for the last 24 hours in our room, we also had the room between the lift wells which can be a bit noisy. Very handy to Surfers main attractions and beach. This is a lower budget level hotel in comparison to other hotels in the area.

Great Hotel

Hotel and staff were very good. I have stayed there before. The room had a few problems fridge did not work the air/con was next to useless and the toilet bowl moved around. Rooms have private owners and it's up to them to fix the problems. I will go back again but not to that room.
