We travelled in January given the time of year it was extremely humid, we had an upstairs room, the split system is locked on a certain temperature and fan speed, one day there it took 31/2 hours for our room to cool, so we were beside ourselves ! The main part of the room was clean , bit tired and...

We stayed here four days in the executive suite (with King Bed and spa) Although the decor is outdated (90's era) it is still very clean and the spa luxurious (large for 2 big people). Kitchen size is good and has microwave and good cooktop. Only issue found was there were not a great variety of frypans (one small one)...

The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are large, clean and well presented and the grounds are lovely and include a beautiful, large goldfish pond. Staying there reminded me of family holidays I took as a child. It's very close to Harbourtown for the retail-minded, in a very pretty part of the Gold Coast, and pleasantly quiet while...

Good location, rooms spacious, beds comfortable. You get a fair bit of noise from adjoining rooms. We could hear every time the neighbors showered. Prices are up there, maybe jacked up for the marathon weekend.

The unit was large and spacious, clean and tidy. Good location, handy to harbour town and other amenities. Room a little dated. Disappointing there was no free wifi or Foxtel on offer. Although nice overpriced.

Having just stayed in a Gold Coast resort that had a great pool but the room left a lot to be desired, we were very relieved to find our Executive Suite with spa bath was very clean and bright feeling. Lots of space, a useful sparkling kitchen, bathroom very clean indeed. Large comfortable bed. Relaxing clean spa. TV in bedroom...

Booked this room as it had a spa, I wasn't told that it was outdoors and with the hot weather it lost its appeal and so was a waste of the extra money. If you need privacy in the spa you need to lower some blinds which are covered in green mildew. The restaurant has been closed for some time...
