Great location right in the middle of Broadbeach and surrounded by some very good bars and restaurants including Koi (where I had a late lunch of duck pancakes and Moroccan lamb) and Moo Moos which is right across the road from the hotel. Kurrawa Surf Life Savers Club and the beach is just a 5 minute walk away, and the lovely Cascade Park about 10 minutes walk. Rooms are comfortable and my balcony looked south over the beach and the water even though I didn't upgrade to an ocean view.

We check out the surf shop, can't believe how huge the stor is every bit of surf and beach wear and accessories you can imagine. Time to head home. Don't get home till 4pm, great day thanks ...
... were going to stay. Byron would be nice but with all the fuss in the morning, was out of the picture.
Christine jumped on the iPhone and within no time we had a Wotif mystery hotel in Surfers Paradise. We knew it would be nice but for $100.00 the Crowne Plaza was a welcome surprise and a big step up from the van.
We had always planned to try to sell the van in Brisbane by the end of July. Tick that ...
... and play some blackjack, around an hour later I'm in the lift looking at 26 buttons with no idea which floor I'm on, I pull out my key card but its blank in our haste to get down to the bar we had thrown our bags in the room and gone, it didn't strike me to look at the room number or even the floor number, oh and my mobile was in my bag. Brain wave, I went back to reception and said to the girl I know this sounds stupid but ...
