I loved my stay at Portobello, we had a family reunion with another family member also staying in the hotel. Both our apartments had a large upstairs balcony with corner spa and a smaller balcony down stairs, both with great views, ideal for a family. The secure parking and visitor parking was really appreciated. You are not allowed to eat... More

We met friends here for the weekend to go to the Suns vs Westcoast Eagles Afl game. We arrived after hours and it was easy to gain entry to our apartment. The rooms were very clean and well appointed, the kitchen was a bonus, although we ate out all the time. For a longer stay it would be ideal. The... More

Location is just diagonally from Broadbeach South station and walking distance from Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. Owner - Gérard was also warm and friendly to recommend other nearby convenience stores & attractions. Apartments are well kept and maintained. Limited free wifi availability though.

Myself and my friends were really surprised by how nice these apartments were for the price we paid during Easter! The apartment was spacious and majority of it was modern including the loungeroom and bedrooms, the bathrooms were a little older but still nothing to complain about! It was within a 10-15 minutes drive to Surfers Paradise and within walking... More

This is a very nice, well kept hotel in the perfect location - near the beach, across the street from public transportation center and a mall and away from the bustle of Surfer's Paradise. The only downside is that the office has very limited hours and there is a minimal fee for wifi after the first day.
