    Excellent location and just mins to places”

    Excellent location - was deciding on The Island Gold Coast vs The Cosmopolitan, and think i made a right choice with The Island. Infact The Island-The Cosmopolitan-Novotel is a triangle - just opposite each other. So comparing the prices, and the facilities, i've made a right choice. Steps to shopping streets & malls - As HRC is just a Novotel, so it's that near. Surfer Paradise beach is also just steps away, say 5mins. It's also near to Sky Observation Deck - within walking mins - around 5-10mins max. Airport drop-off is also just steps away, although not right at the doorsteps of The Island, but it's really steps away only, so not much of an issue of pulling your luggages across the road. If you intend to go whales watching, it's around the corner to the pickup place. The only place it's not so near to is the theme parks as it's located at the other end. But it's still convenient to get the ride over. The tram is down the road Cavill Ave.

    location, clean, cheap parking”

    this is my first trip with family to goldcoast, and I booked a twin suite room which is quite large room, the room is clean, (would be better if you have a bath tub in the room tho), the hotel is very convenient just 5-10 minutes walk to the surfers paradise and if you are travelling with a car, they have a parking space which is only 10$ a day. my wife and kids really enjoyed their stay here. definitely we will come back....thanks to agoda and the island gold coast

    Beds are huge! The furniture still smells fresh so I assume it’s new. It used to be a diff hotel last time but it’s the Island Gold Coast now. Probably some refurbished done. Location is good (surfers paradise). Train is just outside. Will definitely stay if there’s discount. Sometimes the price is high. Hehe

    Perfect location, beautiful hotel and lovely staff ”

    My partner and I stayed at The Island over January. It had the best location, only one minute walk from Cavil Avenue tram stop and less than a 5 minute walk from the beach. The king bed room was very clean, spacious and the sea view was a great touch. The breakfast was great, with many options to choose from. The pool was very clean and had a spacious area to lounge around in. All staff were so nice throughout our stay, particularly Nate who was extremely helpful and very polite. He ensured our holiday was very relaxing and that we were constantly happy with our stay. Despite other reviews complaining about the noise and limited breakfast options, we had no issues with this whatsoever. The Island is a great place for either a quick getaway or long holiday on the Gold Coast and I would highly recommend for others to stay here. We will definitely be returning, thanks!

    The Island Gold Coast was such a pleasant stay. The value of the property was very very very cheap for what it’s worth, I’d pay a lot more to stay here! The location is perfect, all the room amenities are very modern, the staff were super friendly and the buffet breakfast was incredible! I’m a regular traveller in the GC and I can tell you right now this is the only hotel I’ll be staying at from now on. The Island sure beats all the major leading hotels in the Gold Coast. Simply perfect.

    A very enjoyable stay”

    We spent a week at the end of our month's holiday at the Island Gold Coast hotel and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The definite pluses are the location and the staff who went out of their way to accommodate and make our stay a very pleasant one. The only negative point was that our room was exactly above the bar which at weekends gets pretty busy and noisy till the early hours in the morning so if you need to wake up early the next morning it's a problem. Breakfast is a bit limited but again the staff working there go that extra mile to make it satisfactory. The Goldie's restaurant has excellent food as we had an early lunch there and the food was fantastic. Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel as it offers affordable accommodation at a very central location.

    THE Top Modern Hotel in the Gold Cost”

    The hotel itself is very chic, very modern, very woodsy, it's got a beautiful scent. Everything is clean neat and organized. Reception is fantastic and exremely over the top accomodating. They have it all, from one of the best bars/DJs on the gold coast, to a gaming lounge, pool, hot tub and more. Beds are comfy, views are lovely, and it is right in the center of it all. To top it all off, they have an extremely fair price for what they offer , 11/10 would go back.

    Great Value”

    Value for money in heart of Surfers Paradise. Though this was an older building, the rennos are clean, neat, functional & solid. The rooms have very comfy beds with 5 star pillows [that's a win for me]. You can condition the room air using balcony sliding door rather than be locked in to the closed loop air con of the building. Exceptional brekkie included with accomodation and only $15 for underground parking. Friendly casual staff and a funsky fit out of ground floor and level1 deck meant that after walking around town we actually came back and hung out here. There are some continued works going on outside which proved to be a 6am alarm, maybe check the extent of said works prior to booking.
