Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We just spent a week here with our one year old son and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The managers Chris and Judy are very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area and nothing seems like too much trouble. We had an excellent experience from booking our stay right through to checking out.
The apartment and grounds were immaculate and it was very evident that great pride is taken in maintaining the entire property to a high standard.
We had Excellent views from the apartment, the pool was a good size and temperature, the bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the direct beach access and not having to cross the busy road.
We have stayed in Surfers Paradise many times and can honestly say we will stay at ‘One’ again, we will definitely be back.

The managers are lovely people and easy to talk to. Just had a problem with one of the sliding doors which were fixed as soon as they could arrange tradesmen to fix it. It is in such a good spot. You hardly need the car as you can walk to all the restaurants, Coles, Woolworths, shopping centres, Surfers Paradise attractions and tourist spots and the tram with connections to Brisbane on the train. I was on the 13th floor with fantastic views of the coast and Surfers. It was nicely renovated and the bed was comfortable with everything in the unit to make your holiday stress free. Would definitely stay there again.

In our unit, every room faced Surfers Paradise and it was truly spectacular. It does get bright very early (6:30 am) and they don't have blackout curtains. So if early mornings are not your thing, or you wake up with light, you may want to avoid it. We were staying there for 5 days and they provided only 1 dishwashing tablet, and 1 detergent tablet.
Otherwise, everything is absolutely perfect - from location to the cleanliness as well as the size of the unit.

Thank you Alt_Vjain for your 5 star review. Were happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We are self contained apartments so we do supplier a starter pack until you get the chance to go to the shops. Hopefully we will see you again next time you visit the Gold Coast

Every room has a magnificent view. Stunning apartments. Close to Cavill Avenue.
Staff on the front desk so friendly and accommodating. Private access to the beach, great swimming pool.
We had turned up after moving from another Hotel (very disappointed in our apartment there) and the lady at the counter was super helpful on the phone in getting us a 2 bedroom apartment, explained everything for us clearly. We said we would take it and be there in 5 mins. As soon as we walked in the door, she was chatty, smiling and an absolute joy to deal with. She is very proud of the hotel and it shows in her manner and in the rooms as they were spotless.

After 4 years we were able to book an apartment, it was like coming home again. The location, the views and especially Judy and Chris being back made such a difference. We are looking forward to our next visit all being well. Once again a big thank you to Judy and Chris for looking after us so well.

I stayed here with 2 teens in January 2023. Absolutely loved it. Great views down the beach, warm service from the staff members, well appointed and spacious rooms. We wanted to be close to the action but also right on the beach and this was perfect. Highly recommend.

Answer from Jeanette E

Thank-you for your enquiry, all of our two bedroom apartments have air-conditioning in the lounge, this is a large unit that is capable of pushing the cool air through the entire apartment, both of the bedrooms also have ceiling fans. One of our superior apartments does have the air in the bedrooms as well as the lounge, if you could let me know what dates you are travelling, I could check the availability of this particular apartment for you, please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any further queries. Regards, Judy
