I had booked the 3 weeks stay with my 70year father. We were arranged at the ground floor as it would be better for aged guest. However, my father preferred room with fresh air. After talking to the reception, their friendly and considerate assistance helped us to change to 2nd level apartment. Thanks for their thoughtful arrangement. I will definitely...

Have stayed at this property 5 times at least in past 20 years but age is starting to tell. More so than this, the mattress (room 32) was like it had been found on a dumpster ! Horrible ! Also, the back packers in the properties over the road tend to party very late. I think this is the last...

Booked 3 days prior on a spontaneous whim with some friends, over the ANZAC long weekend as well. Pricing was great, amazing location (about 10 mins stroll from Cavill Ave) and a clean, spacious apartment. We asked for late checkout at the 11th hour and there was no problem and no extra charge. So appreciative! If you're after a decent...

Me and my workmate stayed days in a 2 bedroom unit for 10 days. No room service at all. We ended up washing the beddings ourselves in such a busy time. Location is good. Walking distance to Woolies, Coles, beach and Surfers Paradise town centre.

A) a very cheap way to run the apartment. They treated all its customers as theft . The only purposes of stay is to damage the apartment!

3 friends and I rented an apartment for a few weeks and we're working in the are. Just four young girls who were polite and quiet and wanted to save up some money and not cause a fuss. The manager was constantly coming to our apartment, telling us to brush up outside, saying we were messy, blaming us when the...

Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which had a really strong odour. We had to open all the windows and doors, and occasionally run out of the apartment to have some fresh air. Since our accommodation was right opposite a backpacker's resort, it was hard to fall asleep as there was screaming and booming music. The use of...
