    Absolute best value accommodation I've stayed in on the Gold Coast. The manager Wenfu is extremely helpful and accommodating, and exceeded our customer service expectations. The pool is nice and the location is convenient, right next to infinity attraction in surfer's paradise. Would stay again!
