    Regarding service it was really good, no comment on that

    Hotel as five star, i don't think should be rated as that . Rooms are not really satisfied under that rating.Chairs were dirty and hundred years old, what really shocked me ... I would say it would not be any better than 4 star

    The comfort in the room we had was amazing. They had the best bed and the pillows were like clouds! I want to buy them for us at home. Great to have a coffee plunger too.

    The long life milk, fresh is always best.

    Friendly, efficient staff, very clean comfortable rooms, different decor touches like flowers everywhere and candles in foyer.

    Only disappointment was I booked an ocean view room but was given a river view. Didn't say anything as I didn't realise until upstairs and to change rooms would have made me late for event. Also computer system was slow so took a long time to check in and check out.

    Near lots of nice restaurants, very nice room

    Not much that can be done but we thought our ocean view was spoiled by the big yellow building in front of us

    The comfortable and clean spacious room in a great central location of broadbeach. Close to shops casino bars food and the beach. Within walking distance to everything you can leave the car in the parking space!! Quiet and classy atmosphere. The heated pool and decks and the view

    Everything was pretty great. The only thing I didn't like were the bacony chairs which I thought were quite uncomfortable but that's it

    The staff were great. At reception, they offered us $25 pp breakfast - the same breakfast cost $98 at the Sofitel Brisbane. The room was comfortable. We loved the soft bed, doona and pillows.

    On the Sunday we wanted to check-out all four lifts failed. With some very testy customers he staff did their very best under very trying circumstances.

    The reception staff were lovely

    I paid for a King Superior Room, and got a Queen budget room. No Mini bar and after repeated requests still no mini bar. And 2 days after our stay received a phone call regarding cost of paying for items never delivered! Our bed was so old and unsupportive, there was a big padded overlay to disguise this! Only a bottom sheet, no top sheet as you would expect in a 5 star establishment. My husband and i have stayed at your hotel quite often over the past ten years, and never have we found the quality and comfort so poor. We will look for alternate accommodation on our next trip.

    The views are superb. We booked a deluxe sea view room and were upgraded to a suite. Any hotel that offers upgrades will never be marked down in my book!

    Nothing bad, but the design of the suites is odd. The mini-bar and tea/coffee making kit should really be in lounge and not the bedroom.

    Very friendly and helpful staff at reception and the housekeeping staff were extremely pleasant.

    The pillows were far too soft so we brought our own up from the car - we had been away travelling for 2 weeks down south.

    Fabulous

    Clean luxurious suite with ocean view, private and close to amenities, shopping, monorail, casino and beach. Like the later check out time and breakfast in room was very good.

    Car parking overflow next door was long walk to hotel. This was not advised by reception staff on duty.

    Both my wife and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in and around the Hotel. Even with the Blues festival being on the loud side the room was quite enough for a good night sleep. Staff and amenities made the stay most enjoyable. Many Thanks

    Very good

    I thought the room with balcony and sea view was fantastic.

    The service (long wait) for coffee at the buffet could have been a bit more efficient.

    It is a joke that after paying $300 for the night they then want to charge you $15 a day for parking . I have never had to pay for parking at any place I have stayed . I have stayed there before without all the hassles I had this stay and will never be staying there again . Very disappointed and will not recommend to any of my customers .
