Large Group Hotel - Beware the Individual Traveller

Our recent stay was disappointing. The guest car park was full and even though we were charged $15.00 for overnight parking our car was parked elsewhere (I wasn't advised where so could not be confident it was secure or undercover and if we wanted to access our car we needed to give 15 minutes notice). When we entered the lobby it was apparent this is a group hitel. There were bags lined up everywhere and the lobby full of groups. The 3 coaches at the front of the hotel should have given it away. The reception staff were friendly and efficient but didn't give us any information that on the facilities. The room was clean and comfortable but the windows made a strange noise (not sure if it was wind or expansion from the direct afternoon sun). The biggest disappointment was when we tried to make a booking for 2 at the dinner buffet. There was literally less than a dozen people in the restaurant and we were told they were full. That's it. No explanation, no other suggestions, no altetnative time to come back. This was really strange and disappointing. The only thing I can think of was perhaps they were expecting one of their large groups. Nether less, I'm sure they could have squeezed us in if the wanted to make the effort. We settled for an excellent dinner at another hotel nearby. The next morning we went downstairs and the lobby was full of groups again. We thought we'd try our lives ck to see if they could accommodate us for the breakfast buffet. They could. Not being able to get a table last night was probably a blessing in disguise because the breakfast buffet was awful. The hot food was barely hot. The yoghurt bowl and some of the bakery items were empty. The variety was a disappointment (scrambled eggs or an omelette if you were lucky enough to find a chef to cook you one). The staff were cold and unfriendly. It was awful. Certainly not worth the money. If you just want a clean and comfortable room, this hotel would be sufficient. But look elsewhere if you want somewhere to eat, somewhere to park your car and where you don't have to navigate through hoards of groups. Better options on the coast.

Couples getaway

We stayed at the Watermark for a friend's wedding and it was great for location! We were on the 13th floor which had a great view as well. The staff were pleasant and the deal we received on this site was GREAT for the price. My husband had rung ahead to organise champagne and chocolates to be delivered to our room on arrival, but they didn't deliver the right one for the price!!!! But overall our short visit was pleasant.

Great place to stay Centre of Surfers

Couldnt be better except for ONE THING and they maybe could have improved on that ? If your staying for time that you want to unpack?? where do you put your things ?? Desperatly need a chest of drawers, Tiny drawer beside bed and that was IT ???Was this room 409 the Only one with out drawers ??. IT is in my view worth paying the extra 55 per room to have "free Parking " continental Breakfast tea and coffee when ever you want it ? I think & am till 8 pm?? and some cocktails in the evening........missed those, We are a Mature aged couple no children but can see it would be great for kids as well nice spa and pool rooms just redecorated MORE DRAWERS PLEASE ???? Will stay here next time at the coast and will nag them about the drawers :):):)

Great school holiday break

Met all our expectations, very enjoyable stay. Two pools and nice gym. For the evening relax first off to their bar / lounge, then over to the seafood smorgasbord.

Great for the Solo Traveller

Travelling alone can be daunting, but this hotel is so strategically located with the Gold Coast tram, partying and shopping precinct right at your doorstep. Top that with a comfortable room and friendly, welcoming staff and you have the makings of a fabulous holiday or business trip.

Family trip

Great location, across the road from skypoint, tram stop out the front. A short stroll to beach (2 blocks). Food outlets and mini marts all close by. Undercover parking costs $15 p/night. Our room had a glimpse of the ocean. The only down side is there are no balconies for any of the rooms so you get a compact motel room for families (twin room) to sit in with a TV, tiny bar fridge, a two chair dining set and an armchair. This motel was good for us with only a two night stay, I think a longer stay for families would be a little more difficult.

As a family with 2 young children we found our stay to be very pleasant.

The staff were lovely and very accommodating. Upon checkin we asked for a (paid) upgrade and nothing was a drama. Food was beautiful at the Cliffords Lounge and affordable. It is also positioned with the tram station being at the front and easy walking distance to local restaurants and convenience store.
