My first solo trip.

Lovely place for me to rest my head each evening after a busy day out. Clean, warm, comfortable,very hospitable. Lovely friendly staff. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a place to stay on Gold Coast. Felt extremely safe and walking distance to shops and Beach, Tram pretty much outside the front door if you wanted it.
