      Good location and friendly staff

      The check in was amazing. The staff was so kind and helpful. The entrance of the hotel is a bit confusing but everything else was good.

      Golden years of the Gold Coast

      The Island is a nice trip back to the golden age of the Gold Coast. It's an old hotel, but rather than try and hide it, they really embrace it with cool retro styling and vibe. Everything has been renovated and is fully modern so don't let the old vibe turn you off. What you may not like. There is a proper pub downstairs complete with TAB. Might not be your thing. Can be noisy on the weekends depending who is staying next to you. But there's a big box of ear plugs sitting on reception if that's anything to go by. I stayed during the week and only had a bit of noise on Friday night, but didn't deter from my stay.

      Parking and checking in was a bit stressful as there was no parking onsite so had to park car in public car park and walk back to hotel but other than that it was a nice stay with friendly staff. Think it was a bit overpriced for the age and state of it but it was comfortable

      Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and had a good aesthetic. Soundproofing worked really well and despite being in the middle of surfers paradise it was quite and easy to sleep. Recommend checking in and would go again.
