The plus : The location is great, just a few steps away from many attractions i.e ripley's believe it or not, indoor maze, hard rock cafe, cafes, restaurant, mall, souvenirs shop, bus stop and the beach. My room is sea view room. Although you can't really see the beach from your room (blocked by other buildings) but you can at...

Booked into islander resort hotel after seeing it advertised at a really good rate for 2 nights. We hoped to have a nice few relaxing days enjoying a hotel after backpacking for the past month. The reason for the lower price was evident as soon as we turned up- a full hotel renovation! The receptionist very brightly informed us that...

Room antiquated although without charm. Mostly used drug bag in hallway. Incredibly loud neighbours - possibly an entire football team - who counted each other's pushups very loudly. Wifi too feeble to reach the rooms. We were apparently the lucky ones because we had to step over a detective dusting for prints and move aside a "queensland police major crime...

I've stayed at the Islander before and it's been fine. On a positive note...it's an amazing location. Pretty much at the end of Cavill Ave and all the GC nightlife. This time, however, it was a construction zone. The pool and BBQ were out of commission and the place was quite run-down. We were really disappointed because we did not...

Have never had a problem whilst staying here. The staff are friendly and the rooms are decent. If you need last minute accommodation or even a reasonably priced hotel for the night I would recommend this hotel. Just make sure you get the rooms with at least one bedroom - they are of a decent size.
