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.

Love this place!

A timeless classic which endeavors to keep its clients happy. Great staff, in particular Mila from the W-Lounge (is one of the most friendly staff that went above and beyond to serve our needs who have a 1 year old) Room was great, facilities and of-course location. For the price the offer they are very focused on keeping the traditional customer service a hotel experience should feel like. Great pool and dining options. Well done!

Mother, daughter trip

The hotel reception staff were fine, but I wasn't having much luck with the concierge. The first three days out of a five night stay - they just couldn't seem to get it together. Even though I had paid for five days valet parking this was somehow not being understood by them - even though I had my valet card. I had to remind them every time that I have paid for valet parking and that they have my car keys. After waiting at least 20mins for my car on the 3rd day - I was given the wrong car and when I told him this is not my car - he disappeared for 5mins, then comes back and hands me my car keys and tells me my car is in the basement I can go and get it. That's when I'd had enough - I complained to the front desk and they sorted it out for me. There was no problem after that except with the one guy that absolutely hated me for it....he didn't smile and and at one stage when he got my car he had put the seat right back and just about touching a pole - like he wanted me to hit my car.....I just ignored them after that. I think the best thing I could do was just be nice and ignore the little tricks he kept playing - he obviously hated his job. I was glad to see the back of that service and would never stay there again because of this one very bad service from the concierge. There are a lot of hotels in Surfers and even though reception was good - I couldn't recommend it. I like to have a good time on holidays!
