    Great value for money, and the location was just perfect for us to commute back and forth. Access to rooms was easy and check in was literally effortless. Place was easy for taxis to find and we found the self contained kitchen and laundry facilities a god send. Thanks

    Location: Conveniently located a short walk from the main city. Also located close to several bus stops and about a 10 minute walk from the Tram station which can take you north to Helensvale for the theme parks, or south to Broadbeach for Pacific Fair. Also plenty of shopping and nightlife around surfers paradise within walking distance to Karana Palms. Food/Drink: Coles and Woolworths are both about a 6-7 minute walk away just over the bridge, so perfect to stock up on groceries for your stay if you plan to make your own food. Otherwise, UberEats and a couple other places will deliver to the hotel for a reasonable price. There are also hordes of cafes, restaurants and street food outlets located within a 15 minute walk from the resort for those who prefer to dine out. Price: Price was very good for the location and facilities provided, so no complaints about that. I will add that I read reviews before staying here and some people were complaining about the 5$ p/n charge for air conditioning, but honestly most of the time you don’t need it as there are fans in the living room and bedroom that work fine. Even if you do need air conditioning 5$ per night is really inexpensive and given the price of the room, I feel the charge is somewhat justified.) Staff: The lady at the front desk was polite and friendly, and easy to deal with. Check in and check out was quick and convenient. No complaints Room Facilities: This is a self contained apartment so a kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and lounge room are all included. Kitchen comes with fridge, microwave, stove and sink. Bathroom includes shower and toilet, and a laundrette with washing machine, dryer and trough. There is also a clothes airer located on the balcony if you wish to air dry clothes. Bedroom and main bed was tidy and comfortable and had convenient balcony access.

    The only faults we found with the room we were in was: 1)The mattress on the pull-out sofa bed was very worn down and in need of replacement as the bars underneath are wearing through and is uncomfortable on your back. Was useable for the week though wouldn’t recommend for more than a few days if possible. 2) Bathroom light and fan don’t work in room 318, needs repair or replacing as bathroom/laundry is impossible to use without a flash light after sunset. I’d assume this was specific to our room though and they would be working in all other rooms.

    The staff were super helpful with letting us leave our 4 suticases in the room after checkout so that they were safely stored until we got picked up

    The sofa was very uncomfortable
