Perfect beachfront location with gorgeous view!”
This hotel blew us away from the moment we arrived. The location was brilliant: literally right on the beachfront! Being on the corner of Esplanade and Elkhorn placed us right in the heart of the shopping, dining and entertainment precinct, which made walking everywhere a breeze! The helpful staff greeted us kindly and we were able to check in 2 hours early! The room was spotless with everything we needed, the temperature was fine and the room spacious enough for 3 adults. The view from our room was breathtaking: an uninterrupted view of Surfers Paradise Beach, we couldn't believe it! Arranging shuttles to the theme parks and cabs was a cinch, the staff were able to book us in easily and pickup was right out the front. The Chateau Beachside Resort is the perfect hotel for an unforgettable Surfers holiday.
Jewel hidden in Gold Coast”
Chateau is nto a 5 stars hotel, but definitely a hidden jewel in Gold Coast which have given us a lot of surprises. The hotel is cleam & simple enough to meet your daily requirements. Nothing can beat a super seaview room sitting right infront of the beach, which makes me relax at night & eager to wake up next morning enjoying the lovely seaview, listening to the waves & feeling the sea breeze. The location is super. Famous Surfer Paradise is right infront the moment you step out. LV, Rolex, etc. are located next to it. Famous nightlife Orchard Avenue is sitting right behind. 5 mins walk to major shopping center Centro with varieties of restaurants & bars. Supermarket is 5 mins walk as well. Beachside night market on every Wed, Fri & Sun is right infront. All major city attractions like Skypoint, Infinity, Jetboat, Ripley, 7D cinemas are all locating nearby. Bus access is 2 block behind. All these show how Chateau is strategically located. The self-claimed best buffet breakfast is not up to the standard, but the 2 cafes across the road are well aclaimed for their food quality & coffees. The most important is all these come with a reasonable price. I won't say is chear, btu with all these features, what else to complain.
Fantastic hotel beachfront view”
I and my brother stayed for 2 nights in chateau studio room beachfront view. I love our stay there.Our room was perfect and the view was great.The staffs was so helpful and friendly. Location was walking distance to all the place and beach.overall I'm satisfied staying in chateau beachside resort. I will recommend this place to all who wans to visit surfer paradise.
The hotel is located in a perfect spot - not to near to the central area of busy Surfer Paradise but right in front of the beach. We simply LOVE the location. The apartment was just a nice size. We cooked most of the time, and the well equipped kitchenette was good for us. The apartment overlooks the ocean - perfect view. Staffs are friendly. We will sure to come back to Chateau Beachside Resort.
An apartment with an excellent location”
My first time in Australia, and having chosen this apartment for my stay was a great choice. Excellent location, just a few metres away from the Surfers Paradise beach. View from room was amazing. Everyday woke up to a beautiful sunny morning. The apartment is just less than 5 mins walk away from the beach. And can also easily walk to all the shopping areas & eateries with ease. They provided free parking all throughout the stay. Heard from another friend she actually paid for parking at the hotel she stayed in just nearby our apartment. So this was definitely worth it. The rooms were neat & clean although it looked pretty old. I had planned to cook some food assuming that the room came with a stove in the kitchenette. But was a little disappointed when I first discovered there was no stove in my room (not sure of the other rooms). But eventually, it was still alright. Everything else (mainly location) more than made up for the small lack. I will definitely stay in Chateau Resort again if I go back to Gold Coast.
Surfers Paradise very own Chaeau ”
The Chateau Beachside is exactly as the name suggests. Beachside whether for a cold beer, a nice fresh meal or a hop to the surf or shops. Everything is so close at hand, and nothing was a problem….. The sound of crashing waves and the nice sea breeze helped soothe you from the every day hustle and bustle of working life. The hotel was central to everything, with not a traffic noise to be heard come retiring to the relaxing room with the moonlight and sounds of crashing waves to help you to sleep. It was a pleasure to stay at the Hotel and I think The Chateau Beachside has helped restore the beautiful memories of a beautiful city once again. Chateau Beachside….. we will return…..
Great location and a big room”
Chateau Beachside Resort Gold coast is a great location and a big room. We stayed there for 3 nights with a sea view apartment. The view was beautiful. We can also cook there and hotel provides sufficient cooking facilities. Last but not least, there is a free wifi service.
Excellent value and location”
The Gold Coast is not my ideal holiday destination but we had to be there for an event. For us, the Chateau Beachside served its purpose, it was reasonably priced and well located to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. The room was very comfortable and quite spacious with a nice view. Plenty of utensils, china, etc in kitchen and enough room to move around. However, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The carpet had stains, the floor in the kitchenette was sticky and there were also black spots (easily removed)on the floor tiles in the bathroom. Grout also needed a good scrub. A layer of thick dust on the AC outlet told me it hadn't been cleaned in a while so I did it for them. The bar across the drinks section in the fridge door had broken away which meant nothing could be placed in that area. Reasonably quiet apart from noisy revellers coming home late one night but I guess that is to be expected in Surfers.
Another fantastic stay”
After staying with them a few years back when I planned another trip to Goldcoast I didn't look for any other hotel. The location of the hotel and price makes it great value for money. Although the hotel is a bit tired and could do with some renovation the price reflects what you should expect. There is no aircon in the hotel only ceiling fan. The fan in our room was making noise but the staff provided a Dyson fan on request. The views of Surfers paradise beach are amazing. You can sleep listening to the waves. Although the hotel is on the main street, the street is not that noisy at night. Book a beachfront apartment (not room) for the best views. I confused the room with apartment and booked the wrong type of room though the room also has some beach views. There used to be a buffet breakfast voucher you can purchase for the restaurent downstairs which is great value for money but they changed it to a cafe across the road with limited options (at least for us vegetarians).
Superb central location yet a quiet place to sleep”
A word of warning: you shouldn’t expect a 5-star apartment as this is a 3.5-star apartment, in a central location in Gold Coast. It’s very easy to navigate around the Surfers’ Paradise area if you’re staying here. But you should NOT expect an experience of total luxury or to be treated like royalty. I’m satisfied with the size and overall cleanliness of the room provided during my stay. I absolutely loved the views of both the city and the sea from my room. The sounds from the waves were really soothing during the nights. All rooms are secured with the traditional key-lock system. The two receptionists were slightly unfriendly at first, but improved much later. I have to admit that the apartment could do better with some refurbishment, but the place is huge and tidy. Though I found a few strands of hair at the bath room and also under one my pillows, but other than that, all is well. There is a small dry kitchen provided in the double-bedroom that I rented. Sachets of coffee, tea and sugar were provided for each guest. An electric kettle is provided, alongside with plates, glasses, cups, spoons, forks and knifes. There’s also a fridge and a microwave to meet your needs for keeping / reheating food. The huge Samsung TV and also DVD player were a big plus for those who opt for staying in when the weather is bad. There’s a nice restaurant located exactly next to the apartment, and food were priced reasonably. I had my first day’s breakfast there upon my arrival, and was delighted to be fully fuelled before embarking on my journeys to the Movie World, Dreamworld and Sea World – truly wonderful memories with Tweety & Sylvester, the handsome Batman, and the playful dolphins! There were a few clothes hangers provided in the huge wardrobe; an iron; ironing board, and an extension wire for guests with many electrical appliances and may not be able to access them from one place during charging due to the sheer size of the room. You need to bring your converter though.
Lovely hotel with great facilities”
For the price you pay, you will getting an entire mini apartment, not just a room. This is extremely worth it. In addition, the hotel's view is just by the beachside. The receptionists are also friendly and they serve with warm hospitality. This is the only hotel i've ever stayed in Gold Coast, but i am pretty sure this would be the one and only!
If u don't want to spend so much on accommodation, the price at Chateau beachside is very competitive. We particularly like the view which is an enormous ocean with the natural sounds of waves. Since the beach is so popular at surfers paradise, you need to be prepared for a bit of noise even at times when most people are sleeping.
Unforgettable moment we have at 1301 Our room type is Hotel Beachfront, which in the corner of the hotel to provide you an endless view of sea view and city view, is a nice view point for those famous landmarks Q1, Soul and Cavil together. Furthermore, it is also endless city view from the bathroom, amazing right? My wife loves the room very much. The room is without air-conditional facilities, only one ceiling fan attach. I have no idea what will happen during the hot weather. The balcony is facing east, we enjoyed sunrise earlier morning, and sunbath in the morning together with the simple breakfast at the dining area in the room. We totally didn’t watch TV in the room, just enjoying “the song from the ocean”. The only thing I am not so satisfied is the WIFI signal wasn’t strong in the room, while have to access in the lobby. And get prepare, the car’s engine sound may insulting you when you sleep (many rich guys like to show off their sport car at the beach side at night). The location is perfect, just next to Surfer Paradise, all the famous landmarks are just within the walking distance. For shopaholic, Gucci, Prada, LV is just along the street. Restaurants is everywhere, we have no worry about the food. Please alert the hotel if you are late check-in, basically the front office counter is close in the evening, will communicate via intercom thru-out the check in process, and you will get the password to open a mailbox in order to get the room key.
Best hotel i've ever met with best price so you can enjoy the beach with the best view and the cheapest price in surfer paradise. I will come back here again when I comeback to gold coast
I am happy with my stay in Chateau. The hotel room with ocean view is value for money. We cook our breakfast and dinner in the room and enjoy it with ocean view. The hotel is also located at surfers paradise which is convenient to get some souvenir. Definitely will go back for my next visit.
great hotel stay! so worth it!!”
first of all, i have to mention that it has the best location along the surf's paradise stretch because it is not too far from the main beach nor too too close to the main shopping areas which means it doesn't get too noisy or to quiet. just nice. the shopping areas and eateries are just a short walk away! the apartment i stayed in is the 1 bedroom studio room with the northside ocean view and we were on the 17th floor! it was perfect! every morning you wake up to the sound of the waves! yes i admit the furnishing is a bit old but it is in perfectly working condition except for just 1 wobbly dining table which we did not use cos we were mostly dining at the many amazing restaurants outside. the most important part is that the room and toilet is clean! not a single ant or cockroach in sight thank goodness. the kitchen is fully functional with dish wash soap and rags and enough cooking utensils and cutlery for a family of 4. sauna, pool and jacuzzi facilities are not exactly 4 star even but it will do for a small establishment like that. there are also a/c and fan options in case it gets too hot during the summer. ive read a few bad reviews about this hotel but i think they are often misunderstood. i think the staff at this hotel are friendly and helpful right from the first hello. check in was a breeze as long as you have got your documents right with the correct safety deposit amount which is $200 during non-peak and $500 during peak in cash. so do make sure that is ready, this is just one basic thing of theirs you gotta follow. i do not recommend this place for fussy and posh people who expect 4-5 star treatment. this is a nice, cosy and quaint establishment which i feel is down-to-earth for the great location it is in. we loved our stay that we extended one more night! we will surely be back again whenever we are in gold coast. what can i say! location, location, location!
Convenient and nice view ”
We had three nights pleasant stay in chateau beachside resort. This is an apartment instead of resort. Had comfortable stay and fully furnished small kicthen here. Definitely will be back here for our next stay!
We booked the 1 bedroom Oceanview apartment. The room is so comfortable and complete with all the cooking utensil. The view of the sea is superb too.. The resort is strategically located in the main spot of surfer paradise and close to the tram station. The Chinese lady staff at the reception is a bit arrogant and annoying. But the old Australian lady is so kind and helpful. So look for her if you need any help. It is advisable to pay the security deposit of AUD200 by cash to avoid delay in refund. But the reception is only open 7.30am till 8 pm. So if you need to check out early to catch an early flight, you have no choice but to pay the deposit by credit card. But my exp, it only take about 1 week plus for the refund.
Great Location & Value for money.”
I have stayed at Chateau Beachside a few times now, I think it is great value for money and the location is perfect, right next to the beach, shops and restaurants. Units are well maintained and the staff are helpful and friendly, would definitely recommend a stay here.
I was welcomed by friendly and attentive staff who made me very comfortable. I had the Ocean Studio and woke up to a wonderful sunrise. My room was clean and had everything I needed with a great shower. All the amenities are on your doorstep. The Greyhound Bus Service is based around the corner, good for travelling all around Australia and offers 1 month deals and discount for students with ID. The Spa is very relaxing and open until 9:30 pm. Although the shops in the area are a little costly due to location, a little walk away and there is a great variety and a Woolworths for everything. As it was a cool season with temperatures up to 25 degrees, my room was comfortable and the fan was enough. The sea provides a cool breeze. All in all I had a very relaxing experience. Thankyou Chateau Beach Resort Ghazala :)
