The amount you get charged to stay here and no Free WiFi. The Buffet Breakfast is not value for money and don't forget to empty and reline your bin when you leave. The room and facilities I could not fault.

Great room and location. Was there for work and didnt require such a large room but was nice. The facilities are great for families with great pool. Location to central surfers was also great for eating out.

A large, resort style hotel great for families, not so appealing perhaps for older singles or retirees. Clean and comfortable but our bathroom door was badly water damaged and a replaced door handles had left a hole.

The hotel had great facilities and was in a good location. Close to beach and Surfers Paradise. Our room was spacious. King bed and lounge were both a little worn out and in need of replacement. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were very nice. Staff were friendly and helpful.
