We had a fantastic stay at Raffles Royale. It wasn't our first time there and it won't be our last. It's situated right in surfers paradise, its about a 2-3 minute walk to Coles. It's not right near the clubs so it stays quiet at night time. The pool is beautiful, blue and heated. We had a one bedroom delux apartment and couldn't be happier. The room had wifi and Foxtel if you just wanted to stay in and chill. Both times we've stayed there and have been very happy with the price we paid.
Value for money”
It's like your own home... remember that these are not serviced apartments.. ie you take out your own trash and keep tidy with your own effort (there is a vacuum machine in each room). There are also washing and dryer machines for your laundry. If cooking is your thing during holidays, there is an electric stove and refrigerator. You can whip up a simple meal to get you going for the day... food can be a bit expensive in GC. Transportation (tram and bus) and supermarkets ( Coles nearest, a 10 min walk away there is Woolworths) are nearby. Even busses to theme parks are just opposite the hotel. Hotel located at cypress ave... had a good stay and rest... thumbs up to the friendly owner....
Great Location, Value For Money”
Pleasant stay, great location because public transports are everywhere like tram and buses. Host is friendly and helpful. Kettle spoilt and provided solution quickly and got to change a new kettle two days later. Due to cold weather during our visit, greater if heater is available. Also, better if there is elevator facility because its a 3 storey building, at least convenient for heavy luggages / items. Overall, satisfied and nice stay. Keep it up! :)
It is quite old hotel but car park was very secure and the pool was cozy and clean. Even though we arrived much earlier than check-in, the staff lady let us park at the car park. The location was the best. Walking distance to CBD and Coles..overall I liked our stay there.
Great location, nice apartment, internet extra ”
Arriving at the hotel, my room key and pass to open the garage door was ready. Check-out was equally fast and efficient. Room standard was good, but it was a pity that internet access was extra and not included in the room rate as it was quite expensive. Apartment was located facing the pool area with the kitchen and front door facing the apartment building next door. For light sleepers, the construction of the Gold Coast Light Rail adjacent to the building might mean noisy nights and equally noisy days during the construction period, which is set to end once the system opens in mid-2014. However, this should only be a concern if you stay on the side facing the construction zone. Request a room facing the north or south if you want to have the quietest rooms.
I got a deal for booking the room for 7 nights so it was rather cheap. Really well equipped, much like a mini apartment. One bedroom with a queen sized bed, a living room with a sofa set and tv. kitchen area with fridge, microwave oven, normal oven, laundry cabinet with both washer and dryer. fully equipped with pots and pans and utensils. and really spacious.
Re: Value for money”
I did not realiease it at first. But I chose the same hotel as I did more than 10 years ago. It is clean and efficent hotel/apartment. Right at Surfer's paradise. Fuss and hassle free stay, with all the necessary that one would need for a stay. The rooms were painted recently and all in white. Meaning that they are sure of cleanliness. No funny smell, no strange markings all well kept. I would definitely be their loyal repeat customer!
An ordinary and very comfortable hotel”
My husband and I lived in the hotel for four nights. It was a nice room. The staff was kind to us. When they knew that we would like to watch the opening ceremony of the Olympic games, they told us the channel in details. In the room, there were lots of facilities for us to use. It was very convenient. Another advantage for the hotel was that it was near to a bus stop.
Should it called apartment rather than hotel”
Very nice location indeed, close to the beach and stores. We're lucky to get the whole apartment all by ourselves instead of sharing with the other. The apartment we stay got 2 room.. and yet, we both get the whole apartment! Shortly.. Good to stay here. And the staff officer there is very helpful! Thank you!
Great apartment with warm service.”
If u choose to stay here, u dun need to hire a car coz the public bus is so convenient.Overall is excellent. We enjoyed the heated jacuzzi so much.The staff are very friendly and informative too!( Ms. Thereese * if I spell it right) you can get a discount card for many attractions at the receptionist counter as well. The apartment was exactly like it was pictured on their websites and it is value for money. We'll definitely comeback here again!
The apartment had more than everything we need: wi-fi, kitchen, cooking and eating tools, hot/cold shower and faucet, microwaveable, washing machine, dryer, hairdryer, towels, shampoo and conditioner, entertainment, warm pool and jacuzzi, and many more. What we would appreciate more is if that there is a warm air conditioner - there is an air conditioner, but maybe we just don't know how to operate to make it produce warm air. Surfer's Paradise beach itself is just 3 or less minute walk and public transportations are 1 minute away. We went in early winter and did not have problems with the slightly cold weather. Would highly consider booking again if we go back to Gold Coast.
Paradise road trip stop #1”
Pros: location, pool, BBQ deck, washer, great price!, generally quiet, aircon, kitchenwares Cons: broken shower head and shower door, broken bathroom tiles, broken clothes dryer, not enough laundry soap or dish soap for 3 days, aircon doesn't circulate
Good clean place”
I stayed there during the Commonwealth Games and stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. I had only booked a one bedroom and was very pleased to find I had been upgraded when I arrived. The apartment was clean and large. It had everything I needed in terms of cooking and only a short walk to the beach and main streets (for restaurants and shopping). Very close to the tram and it was quiet at night. Would stay there again.
You get pretty much what you pay for, perfect for a short stay”
Close to beach, bus, tram, shops, and restaurants. Was clean and tidy, enough resources to use in the room. Pool was unavailable during our stay, was getting fixed, manager was lovely and welcoming. Enjoyed my short stay.
Bed was average, Blinds do not block much at all. Very bright in early morning. Shower head needs to be replaced. Other than that very cheap for New Years Eve. . Kitchen has everything you need. Great location. Not too noisy. Would probably stay there again.
Stayed for 2 nights over New Years. Location is really superb, as it's only about 5mins walk away from the heart of Surfers Paradise, and there is a Coles along the way if you need. From the outside the places looks quite old, but once we were inside our unit it was very clean, cosy and very accommodating with all the small details included as well (involving umbrella, beach bags, extra towels, coffee, cooking oil, foxtel and lots of nice decor that made the place feel more like a home rather than a hotel). Very good price for value, considering we booked quite close to the Christmas period and New Years Eve. Obviously don't compare to your Rydges or Hilton, but for a small unit, I highly recommend. Thankyou!
Only one downfall was finding staff or reception to checkout to get bond back, and asked to leave luggage for a few hours but couldn’t find anyone, and despite numerous calls to which went unanswered I’d suggest this area needs some work! Other than that a great stay and location . Room was well equipped too.
Beautiful apartment, great location”
The property was very clean and well situated in the Gold Coast. It was very close to shops, clubs and the beach. The caretaker was very lovely and helpful and gave us information about how to get to places. Lovely balcony area overlooking the pool. Definitely would stay again.
BEST STAY IN GOLD COAST”
near to everything, facilities very good, clean, spacious apartment, can cook, all kitchen stuffs available, many grocery stores nearby, washing machine and drying machine all have, super convenient, regret to book other hotels with the similar price, should have book Raffles Royals for my entire trip...
Value for Money”
Great location , all though it was quite dated , the rooms where clean and had everything you needed in working conditions, right next to a huge car park which is free parking from 7pm till 6am which was handy right in Surfers for our friends & family who came to visit. Easy access to trams / buses - range of eateries / supermarkets and centre of Surfers with in minutes of walking, all in all if your looking for a reasonable hotel with a reasonable price then definitely recommend this hotel , friendly staff only downfall would be nill access to elevators, so if your on the top floor and have a lot of luggage then you'all have a bit of a challenge on your hands.
