  • Superb location, right in the centre of where all the action is, close to beach, surrounded by shops and restaurants with Woolworths supermarket right across the road. Hotel appears quite old but maintenance does a great job keeping everything neat, clean and in working order. Staff are courteous and helpful. The bed mattress in my room has seen better days though and I think it is really time for it to be replaced as the springs are pretty worn out. I stayed there for 5 nights and breakfast served each day was exactly the same throughout with limited choice; so perhaps some variety would be nice.

  • Being a local of the Gold Coast and having visitors staying in Surfers Paradise it was our opportunity to stay overnight in Surfers to attend the New Year Eve Fireworks. Being too difficult to drive in and out for the night I decided to stay and book somewhere close to the action. Hearing comments from the locals and a few Reviews I was doubting my decision of booking with the Islander but it was only for a short one night and still took the booking. Upon arrival and viewed the room I was quite surprised and happy with the room and pleased about the perfect location. We had no problems with Checkin and no problems getting a underground car park. Yes, the hotel is tied and needs a definite refurb but for the price of being totally in the middle of the action I have no issues with this Hotel. In fact we have had worse while travelling in Europe and less amenities. Yes, it is a Budget Hotel and catered for the Budget conscious people so I suggest you take that in mind and just enjoy a great priced Hotel with a clean room, close to everything. If you want a more up market Hotel , look elsewhere.
  • Had an absolute unreal time staying at the islander backpackers. Room was clean and basic, all you need. Facilities were great and the restaurant downstairs is the best. Such cheap food and drinks. Met so many awesome people during my stay and had a ball over New Years. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Highly reccomended
  • We stay here every year for V8s. Friendly staff, clean room and close to everything including the new light rail for easy access to track and casino.

  • This is not a fancy hotel, but found it to be clean, be right in the middle of all the action of Surface Paradise, and have everything you need at the resort.Front Staff very nice and helpful. We had a room on the 10th floor and it had good views, even water views. I can imagine when it is full it would be very noisy, but we found it quiet. The car parking is very limited-not many parks compared to rooms. Very affordable for a quick stop over on the coast-we would revisit again.Pool clean.The rooms are dated but clean and a good size.
