Alpha Sovereign Hotel
Ranked #17 of 31 Hotels in Surfers Paradise
Reviewed 13 August 2017

So, we booked this stay about four months before we were to travel. The deal was particularly good and was a great start. My initial conversation was with a lovely young lady called Dorothea who tried to get us into a room on a high floor with a good view of the ocean. She said the view of the ocean was obscured and not the best; but when we arrived and went to our room, it was a lovely view and much better than I was expecting - It looks as though Dorothea ensured our preferences was sorted when a room became available - Great Stuff

I have to say that nothing for which we asked appeared to be too much trouble for pretty much all of the people who worked there, including the room service and maintenance folk. I also have to say a big thank you to Hemanth (I hope that's the right spelling) as he went to great lengths to ensure our stay was above expectations

My one issue (and given the hotel was chosen because it boasted this service, it's a biggie) is the pathetic access to WiFi. Seriously, this needs to be addressed. Although I was (kind of) on holidays, I needed to be on line for work every day and the poor connection and continuous drop-outs caused a great deal of frustration and disgruntlement. Yes, there are times where there is a reasonable connection, but far too many times it was dreadful

Overall, our stay was very good and, should I see myself needing another break from the cold, I will certainly consider the Alpha Sovereign Hotel again

Room Tip: Make sure you tell them to fix the internet

Stayed for 2nights whilst attending a conference at Surfers. The hotel is very tired looking all over and in need of a refurbishment inside and out. Having said that though, the staff keep it very clean. The rooms/bathrooms/kitchenette were clean, and so were the restaurant and outdoor areas. The swimming pool and spa looked good even though I didn't get a chance to use them. I stayed one night in a room on a lower floor facing the main road, there was a lot of road noise throughout the night hence I asked to be moved to the other side of the building on a higher floor the next night which was much more pleasant. I recommend asking for a room on higher floor or facing the hinterland (still good views). The restaurant menu was very limited and whilst convenient, you could get much better a short walk away. Front desk staff were very helpful and obliging-changing rooms for me, allowing me to leave luggage post check out. They could however, be more smiley and friendly! Overall, you get what you pay for, it's definitely value for money on the Gold Coast.

Room Tip: higher floors, facing hinterlands are quieter.

Spent a week at this Hotel (Formally Australis) Reception are friendly. Hotel staff park your car for you and when vehicle is required again they will park it outside in the court area.Rooms are spacious and clean.A tip when walking to Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach rather than walk to the front of the hotel, walk through the pool area and exit out the back. Would definitely recommendof appeals for this Hotel. n.b free papers and magazines in the reception area each morning.

The hotel was not very aesthetically pleasing.. Putting that aside, the room was massive, the staff friendly, location very good & amenities excellent. I would happily stay there again.

Amenities included spa, pool, fitness room, games room, bbq area, restaurant, convenience store & valet parking.

As a ultiqa member for the last 20 years I have always been very pleased with the accommodation I have booked.I don't complain easily but I found the alpha sovereign south tower well below the standard I was accustomed to with ultiqa.
The shower was small and hence the water went all over floor and toilet.No room was not attended to the whole time we were there which meant we had the same towels for a week.The bed was soft and very uncomfortable and pillows were awful.The air conditioner didn't work.
On the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful.The buffet breakfast was good.Good size pool and we enjoyed the spa on several occasions.
Will inform ultiqa about our stay.
