Carlton Apartments
Reviewed 1 September 2010

We have just returned from six weeks in the above accomodation. It is our fifth year in the same apartment block. Our third year in the same unit. We love the central location with easy access to everything. We found the Management extremely helpful and friendly and are always made to feel welcome. If its value for money you are after we can thoroughly recommend it! And we've booked again for next year!

Reviewed 12 May 2010

Ill write in point form as so many things were wrong with this apartment complex. It looekd great on the website but was so poorly described that we were forced to stay elsewhere as it is NOT AS ADVERTISED

2 rooms, one with single beds, not mentioned anywhere or pictured, we had booked for 4 adults (2 couples) and this was not expected

The fan in one of the bedrooms did not work
When the single beds were pushed together it was noted that there was a disgusting pile of dust, dirt and debris around and under the beds. When our friends hopped in their bed the sheets were noted to be dirty (? blood stain).

The showers were made for very short people and there was no effective exhaust fan in the bathrooms which made the mirrors fog up.

The apartments were advertised as spacious, but they were most definately not!! The balcony was also very small. Dining room table for 4 pushed up against wall and very small living space.

Rude manager who tried to tell us that other couples have been happy to sleep in single beds and that this bedding configuration was standard across the gold coast (which it most definately IS NOT!). She then tried to charge us double for our nights accomodation when we wanted to cancel the rest of our stay. After the manager getting quite passive agressive, we got our refund and stayed at an awesome place just up the road 3 times the size of Carlton and it was immaculately cleaned, the fans worked and the beds were great!

You have to pay extra to use the air con as well.
