Hotel Grand Chancellor Surfers Paradise: Good location, basic facilities

Hotel Grand Chancellor, formerly the Courtyard by Marriott, is located at the corner of Hanlan Street and Surfers Paradise Boulevard and 5 minutes walk from the beach. The location is great if you want convenience because there are plenty to see and do just steps from the hotel. Beach cafes, restaurants and entertainment spots are a plenty. There's even a shopping mall with a well stocked supermarket and pharmacy downstairs.

I stayed in an ocean view room on the 30th floor so I had amazing views from my balcony. My spacious room had plenty of space for a double bed and a single bed plus a vanity & small TV. I would say this is between a 3 star and 4 star hotel. Wifi and breakfast were not free but that's fine because there are plenty of cafes nearby.

There's a simple lobby at the ground floor with the reception area and a tour desk. If you are making trips out of the Gold Coast, eg Brisbane, the bus terminal is a short walk away.

Pros:
Good central location close to the beach, cafes, entertainment & bus terminal
Spacious room

Cons:
No free wifi
Quite expensive for basic facilities

Anacapri Holiday Resort Apartments: Good place with everything U want.

The service of the staffs are very friendly. Recommend this apartment to everyone as it is cheap, cosy and quiet. Just about 10 mins walk to the busy street of Surfers Paradise while just down the road is the Gold coast beach. Bus stop are just around the corner that can take you to shopping malls and theme parks. A full set of kitchen equipment are provided, washing machine, dryer, bathtub. Additional facilities are the swimming pool and the sauna.

Surfers Mayfair Apartments: A Hidden Gem

I am from the Gold Coast and my husband who is American and I stayed in The Surfers Mayfair its great and I can highly recommend it.

The room rates are cheap and easily sleep two to four people its a fully contained apartment with kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, TV with cable.

Its located just back from the beach and close to Surfers resturants a woolworths supermarket circle on cavil supermarket. Also a great fish and chip shop nearby plus near lots of shops a great location to the Q1 (a big tall building to get 360 degree views of surfers) also a perfect location for catching the bus to go to all the theme parks.

You can even book all of your tours close by or pick up information from the front desk.

It actually borders on Broadbeach and Surfers as its located next to the Broadbeach police station.

Its quiet and has views back down the road to the beach.

Its got large balconies and you can look out towards the beach and small attraction area with some crazy rides called the sling shot and vomatron also has a mini golf course.

Oh and the pool area is just great got a pool and spa. Plus a BBQ area. As well just down the road is Budds beach and Mac Intosh Island park with BBQ facilities, playground, beach / river area.

Its actually not too far from Sea world theme park.

Oh and make sure if you want a cheap meal out for the family to check out the surf clubs they always offer great meals at cheap prices and are close by.

Surfers Pacific Tower: Absolute Sea Facing Apartment

This apartment is located in Surfers Paradise. There are 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments in this 6 storeyed apartment. The location of the apartment is unique. It is exactly on the beach. You just come out of the hotel compound wall and you are on the beach.
The lop side is that the swimming pool is a small one and open. Most of the time, the beach side is very breezy, as a result, it becomes difficult to go into the pool. They claimed that the pool is warmend but when we went there, didnt find it warm. Moreever, just next to the hotel, there is a construction of a hotel going on. So if you plan to stay in the room for whole day, be ready for some disturbances.
Overall, I was quite satisfied and would recommend the apartment to anybody.

Sea View from every room. Even when you are working in the kitchen, you get a splendid sea view. The rooms are quite breezy.
