Relaxing overnight stay

The location of the hotel is great. The new Gold Coast tram system is right outside, almost like it was built for the hotel! Everything is within walking distance, Cavill Ave Mall and all of the hustle and bustle are a few minutes walk from the hotel. Food and coffee is everywhere just outside the doors. Hotel is really easy to find and the beach is a couple of minutes walk. The staff were really friendly and helpful and everything is nice and clean. Just a few little picky things to whinge about, like no wine bottle opener in the room, had to call down to organise one. Even though the hotel advertises ocean views, I am sure some rooms would probably have better views than ours, we mainly had a massive skyscraper blocking the ocean view but still it was not that bad. I hate having to pay extra for parking when staying anywhere, so be prepared to pay for each night you park your car at the hotel. Other than that, I highly recommend this hotel for price, location and convenience. I don't know if all the rooms are the same size, ours was rather small, but ok for the time that we spent there.

Not a bad hotel

Everything about the hotel is quite good. Although when we stayed there the air conditioning in the room was temperamental and was hot in the middle of the night for about an hour. The hotel didn't offer any compensation. We thought $20 for car parking was a bit steep considering we had already paid to stay at the hotel - where else were we going to park the car....!? We ate at the Walrus lounge and the food was great and well priced. Location is really good, walking distance to the middle of surfers and right on the doorstep for the tram.

Disappointing

I stayed at the watermark for two nights.i was exited as it looked nice and had all the little perks. Unfortunately it wasnt a very pleasant experience. Upon check in i stated to the staff that i was staying two nights and i didn't want to be hounded to check out early the next day if they made a mistake, they looked at me like it was a no brainer and assured me it wouldn't happen. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED. I was woken up with countless phone calls and then to a knock on my door asking when i was checking out and that i had to leave asap as it was 20min past check out time. I calmy explained i wasn't checking out but was furious. And also didnt get an apology or anything. Later that evening i proceeded to purchase a movie but because the televisions are operated by Android there was no connectivity and we were unable to watch anything, lucky i had a tablet with me. Room service was also not very nice and very overpriced for portion size. There was no mini bar at all or conditioner in the bathroom. Also paper thin walls and windows. The only positive was the view and the rooms were of ok sizing. Definitely not somewhere i would stay again especially not for more than a night which is unfortunate because i stay in surfers alot.

Very comfortable room and hotel

Overall great time and value for money with 2 kids staying free. Bit annoying the sauna was out of service. Can't take your drinks from the bar to the restaurant or up to your room is a stupid rule.
