    Fabulous

    Very good central location with excellent views and good value for money

    Honestly, its not well suited to couples with young children. The rooms are quite basic (no bathtubs, toasters, dining tables) Excellent for backpackers and couples though

    Fabulous

    looks like it hasn't been renovated since the 70s but you can see both the beach and the top of Caville Ave from the balcony so perfect location for people just looking for somewhere to dump their stuff and sleep

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The location was defnetly the most appealing.

    The room was set up lke a backpackers hostel...there were beds everywere which I did not request, there was no room to move because of all the beds it was lke a backpackers hostel not a hotel. The room was dull and depressing for such a buetiful location . I was also very disapointed when I turned the tv on befoe check out and found it didn't work, do you not check your appliances??

    Superb

    We really found the Islander was so convenient and with its no frills policy had everything we needed . Good clean and affordable . Just love the bar downstairs.

    A Bit noisy outside on the Friday night but this has to be expected around Surfers. Did not worry us though

    That it was central to all the things that I needed as we caught the country link to surfers paradise so the islander resort was walking distance from the terminal and another activity we was doing was on couple of metres from islander resort.

    Good

    The location was good and close to the beach and shops

    The bathroom was really tiny and had way tooo much mould in the shower recess and the basin was so old it had way to many cracks in it. The whole bathroom needs to be replaced it was really bad

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    I liked it. I wasnt expecting much so it was a real surprise. The beds were great, the rooms were big and great view from the bolcany. The shower how ever wasnt great, really weak flow of the water but other than that, very good! Very stylish! :D loved it

    The shower.
