ARRIVAL LODGE BED & BREAKFAST
Good place to stay!”
Very clean and easy going staff but only 1 con and that was that the kitchen was closed after 6pm. So we cooked on the gas bbq on the roof terrace. Also fine haha.
Not worth the money ”
Furniture is bad, cheap and old Facility is poor, just barely usable You can hear the next door No air conditioning If you’re a family who needs two or more rooms, you are better off looking for a holiday house with better privacy, facilities and confort for the same price.
Small place but great value”
It was affordable, clean, self contained. Rooms were a bit Small, and you have to bring your own towel, toiletries etc. Staff were really nice to us. Pool was clean but small. Overall enjoyed my holiday away from my day to day routine and saved a lot of money.
Good value for money”
My friend and I had to stop at the Gold Coast for one night, we were glad to find a last minute place to stay. We arrived to the accommodation centre after the checkin time but the staff was kind enough to let us checkin anyways. The room was clean and tidy with standard furnitures. Shared bathroom area was satisfactory. Nothing to complain.
Cheaper than a caravan park ”
Was going to book a campsite at the nearby caravan park but realised for 3 people, it was cheaper to book a room here than a piece of grass to set my tent. Parking underground costs money but they were full so we found a spot in a nearby side street which had plentiful parking. Its very close to the restaurant areas in southport with many restaurants to choose from.
It's a good place if you're planing NOT TO get crazy, smoke funny things or drink. It's a place to stay with your family or friends, trying to be nice with the staff and having a good attitude. 8 dollars for parking each night.
Observation & Analysis: Walked in to 2nd floor reception to check in during the morning of 04/05/15 and I was greeted by megawatt smiles by Greg and Annette (superbly friendly people). Greg showed me my room on the 1st floor which was facing the pool along with showing me where the toilets and smoking areas were, even gave me pointers on where to go for coffee. Matt who works there was also extremely friendly and approachable, also armed with megawatt smile. Arrival Accommodation offers a homely environment for backpackers that are visiting the gold coast. The place is relatively quiet at night so no worries on the noise pollution part. Southport south is also generally safe at night ( cause I went for a stroll in the middle of the night due to jetlag and it was very safe). Cleanliness & hygiene: 5/5 Whole interior of the house on all levels are swept, mopped, cleaned thoroughly every morning by Greg, Annette and Matt. Toilet: 5/5 > Toilets are mopped, cleaned and maintained very thoroughly every morning without fail. This applies to all toilets. Room: 5/5 > Got to my room and was better then what I had expected to see. Clean beds, floor and not a single trace of anything you might find unpleasant. Kitchen:5/5 > crockery, plates, utensils are all provided. You can store your food and water in the 2 refrigerators. Living room: 5/5 > Flat screen TV with sofa Smoking area:5/5 > very well maintained. Accessibility: > 65 minutes away from Coolangatta Airport( got on the 5am tram at Southport South tram station, change to bus 777 all the way to airport. Alighted at 6.05am) > lodge is only a 1 minute walk to southport south station. Do buy them coffee in the mornings, if you think my review is accurate :) Cheers!!!
First contact was online booking service which was great,location for myself was perfect for business, complex was inviting, very presentable,staff were helpful friendly,price was excellent," HOWEVER THERE WAS A VERY STRESSFUL SITUATION THAT NEED'S TO BE ADDRESSED FOR THE SAFETY OF MYSELF/ GUEST'S WHICH COULD HAVE RESULTED IN SOME VERY BAD PUBLICITY IF I CHOSE TO ENGAGE LEGAL SERVICER'S." Hopefully Customer Support, will contact myself for an explanation before the next step is taken! Regard's Robbie Johnson
great location, lovely hotel”
without air-conditioner, but corridor is very cool kind staff, clean room, good location, beautiful beach park near by, great sight view. near to Sea World,not far away has bus stop, conveniet transpotation.
Accommodation with very basic facility”
overall, the stay at this accommodation was pleasant. the room came with basic facility and clean. location was just ok as it is not close to the beach and need to take a bus to get to the surfers paradise. shopping area is just within walking distance from this hotel and the owner was quite helpful.
Arrival Accommodation Centre is located in the heart of the Gold Coast CBD near Surfers Paradise and walking distance to shopping centres, cinemas, parks, beaches, Southport Hospital, Gold Coast Institute of TAFE and english language schools.
No aircon, dirty SHARED Toilet, Smell cigarette ”
It’s good for a backpacker not for family.
Just a few minutes from Tram Station”
Is convenient as there are buses and tram to travel to places. If you don't mind walking, you can also walk to Southport station for asian food!
Clean and convenient nice owners ”
Great economic clean stay
Everything was good expect the kitchen condition”
Humidity of the toilet and shower area creat strange smell and little flies. Someone left dishes all day and seems no one cleaned for a day.
Chrissie was very helpful and friendly. She made me feel very welcomed and went the extra mile.

I stayed in this place from 2nd to 4th August i checked in at 01:00pm,the place was really filthy and the manager never told me about the check in and check out time and no forms to fill and he took a deposit of 50$,my sheets in my room had filthy stains all over,toilets were disgusting with pooo stains all over.This is the most disgusted place i have ever been in my life never expected such a filthy place in a beautiful country like australia.On friday morning i attend my classes and came back around 2pm back to the place to see all my stuff was missing,when i ask the manager about it he was really rude to me and was swearing and assaulting me,he packed all my stuff in a bag chucked in a store room without even notifying me through email or phne or even a message about it.When i checked my bag i was missing my 150$ perfume Dior Sauvage,he asked me to evacute from the premises when i ask him about it and didnt even give my deposit back.It was shittiest experience i ever had,CAN U PLEASE CHECK FORWARD TO THIS MATTER AS THIS IS ILLEGAL.THANKYOU
on reception old lady started harsh talk with me on arrival due to wrong booking of 2 kids instead of three kids and i was totally stunned that it could happen to me in Australia. Extremely poor hotel, continuous smell, bad hygienic conditions etc etc
You get less than what you pay for”
Not one of the best experiences staying in a so called "hotel". You almost get what you paid for but i doubt i will be going back there again. Here's the pros and cons. Pros: The staff were friendly. Location was close to major attractions and has a tram stop near by (although i didn't use it as I had a car). Cos: -The beds were really dirty. The first room I got was extremely smelly, smells of damp socks, and the blankets were stained. Managed to get another room and staff was apologetic. Again the blankets in the second room were also stained (possibly of human products). But at least the room didn't smell so braved for two nights. -The common rooms were occupied by a number of drunk men, watching TV until about 11pm. They appeared to be regular or long term customers. Rooms are not sound proof so yes you will hear what they are watching. -The facilities are a bit worn down. Toilet without working lights, bathrooms with broken fittings and broken bed side table lamp. -Be warned that this is a budget accommodation and nothing is included. Parking is $8-$10/night, and you need to buy towels and wifi if you haven't got one.
Travellers BEWARE ”
Once checked after falsely saying there was secure parking they charge an extra 10 a day there was a car break in and glass everywhere when I arrived with my children the lock was broken and nothing put in place to secure people's cars a very aggressive older man no where to kids to go and not that safe my children were not allowed to play out the back and have the door ajar so they could come get us in case of emergency and the boss there was very aggressive and told me not to allow them to have door ajar even tho people were coming in and out from the front who didn't live there and was not secure at all there family room was not clean and the hotel taken over by drunks the only thing for anyone to do outside the room is watch TV which was occupied buy two creepy looking men drinking so not worth it do t go there unless ur homeless or have lived in a squat before as this is the place that even rats and cockarochs wouldn't even stay there for free and that's the only upside the young receptionist was pleasant and not aggressive or rude and deserves a raise for even being there DONT GO I WARNED U
