Good to see you actually managed to stick it out in the same bed as me for the whole night. You woke first and made me Weetbix using the Pot Noodle bowl and fork and extra milk from Housekeeping. I ran a bath and read the free newspaper to chill.
Late morning, we walked in to town after checking the south out. Lots of food places on the …
Slept well after all that travelling. We were up later than I predicted because our shuttle wasn't booked until 10.40 – which meant there was even time for a nice bath together too. Checked out fine and the bus turned up on time! Airport was busy-ish but we just sat outside after checking in, under the shade of a tree and eating a ham and …
I woke up at 5-something to a lovely golden light streaming through the window. After turning over and realising you had moved to the other bed because of my cols, I slept a bit longer and woke again to take in the view from our balcony. The noise sounded as loud as a busy road – but in fact was the waves crashing on to the shore.
Before I start with the future plans I need to just let you all know that I, Keli Barnes, actually did a bungee jump on Sunday 26th August... yes you read it right!! What the hell?! Bungee is one of the things that I swore I would NEVER do.. and yet I loved it. What ever next.. spiders as pets??!?! Ok, let's not go too far here... it was merely a …
Travelling from city to city on your own is a mixture of emotions. You leave behind the comforts of newly found colleagues and the familiarisation of where you were for the thrill of seeing somewhere new not knowing what the new experience will hold. I've found that throwing yourself into the challenge, whatever it maybe, seems to have a way of rewarding you. So I've arrived at the Gold Coast and taken a short 40min bus journey from the airport to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise
After reading the reviews here I was unsure whether or not to go ahead and book a few nights at the Crowne Plaza.
My hubby , son & I spent a week at the Gold Coast in Jan 2006 & stayed at the lovely Crown Plaza Hotel, located between Broadbeach & Surfer's Paradise. Our room, located on the 20th floor of the Gold Tower, had magnificent views of both the Nerang River & the beach. We were lucky to get it as it had only been newly refurbished into an apartment style suite. It had a separate bedroom with an ensuite; lovely kitchen with a full sized fridge, microwave, dishwasher, combined washing machine & dryer, glasses, cutlery, plates, etc, all sparkling clean; loungeroom with sofa bed; dining room & 2 balconies.
Stay Away From This Hotel
Old, Dirty and as I like to say, "Worthy of Demolition"
I Booked the Crowne Plaza based on the information provided to me on the phone and internet by Crowne Plaza. Most of which was inaccurate. (i.e. internet access, hotel location, resturants)
The Crowne Plaza is very expensive for what is in my opinion old run down hotel that really is not close to anything. A much better option is the Watermark Hotel or Holiday Inn.
The service is appauling.
I was booked in on a two week vacation, and my partner wanted to leave after the first night, I by no means disagreed!
I booked our getaway from the 30 Dec to 5 Jan, and then called back reservations to get an extra night for the 29th. Upon arrival, we discovered that the lady who booked the extra night, booked us for Jan 29, not Dec 29! Our room wasn't ready and we were told we would be given a call when it was ready. NO apology at all, as if this kind of thing is just normal and we should expect it. In fact, we were made to feel like a nuisance. We came back when we received the call, again no apology for the delay.. just given our key.. no welcome.. no warmth or smile.
Just back to Sydney after 14 days at the Crowne Plaza on the Gold Coast over Christmas and New Year. What a sensational family destination....faultless hotel also. Theme parks were great for our 6 and 8 year old kids. Beach, 2 hotel pools, a million things to keep us all entertained, the number of very tempting local restaurants had us out on a gourmet food fest. Having a car made the variety of things available to us fantastic. Pacific Fair for shopping, Main Beach
Nice Touristy Hotel with Bad Internet Service
As a business traveller, I spend much time trying to ensure that hotels I select can service my needs for broadband when traveling. This Crowne Plaza (part of the Intercontinental Hotel chain) was one of the worst I have experienced for this service. The hotel charged $27.50 per day for extremely slow service, PLUS a charge for data! I stayed only one night of a three night trip, as the hotel insisted that I had racked up over $100 in "data" while there one night, working!
The rooms were clean and comfortable, elevators extremely slow and noisy thruout the building. Nice views, but don't excuse this world-class hotel chain for such unreasonable service charges for what is clearly now a BASIC hotel service.
Just returned from my second stay at the Crown Plaza Surfers Paradise with my husband and I thought I have to write a review as I always check out hotel reviews on trip advisor before I book any hotel world wide.
Have just returned from spending 2 nights at the Crowne Plaza in Surfers Paradise. Whilst it is the destination (i.e. Surfers Paradise) rather than the hotel room that is the attraction for most travellers, our purpose for staying at the Crowne Plaza was to spend a couple of lazy days/nights relaxing in our room - a king deluxe spa room in the Gold Tower.
GOOD BUT COULD BE EXCELLENT
Stayed in this Hotel in the past when it was known as Parkroyal when we enjoyed our stay. This time around not so good. Reception staff were excellent, with check-in done quickly and without fuss. Room size excellent (King room with ocean view). Quiet with no noise penetration form rooms next door. Room and ensuite both clean although bathroon had a broken towel rack. Breakfast was excellent. Disapointingly the food at roof-top revolving restraunt, seafood and asian buffet, was sub-standard for a hotel of this quality. Tasteless prawns, frozen packet spring rolls and luke warm mains due to insufficient heat in bain marees. Good hotel but eat dinner out.
Stayed here for stop over and ended up staying 2 nights, we loved it here and got a fab room. Staff very friendly, easy to find and short walk to the beach. 15 min walk to centre of Surfers Paradise, very busy resort and buzzing. Would go back in a minute.
