Gold Coast Accommodation:
Hotels Surfers Paradise
The majority of hotels on the Gold Coast are located in Surfers Paradise. But hotels Surfers Paradise are also competing with apartments and resorts for business – and competition is fierce! This means a wide range of pricing and discounts offered.
The average occupancy rate for Gold Coast hotels for the year ended March 2009 was 69%. Therefore, the average 'un-occupancy' rate (if there's such a word?) is 31%, and would be considerably higher in off-peak periods.
And this is good news for visitors.
Why? A high 'unoccupied' rate provides motivation for hotels to offer regular promotions and great accommodation deals during their off-peak times. ie. It is good business for them to reduce the room rate and bring in some revenue, than to have empty rooms and zero revenue.
Hotels have another reason for discounting their rooms, in that they anticipate their guests (ie. you) will use the minibar, and perhaps eat in the hotel's restaurants, and have a couple of drinks in the bar. This all adds extra revenue, and profits.
What can you expect from Surfers Paradise hotels?
Firstly, the location just has to be mentioned, as this is a major plus. You'll be staying in the heart of the Gold Coast, in an area of high energy and constant activity, and within easy walking distance to the beach, shopping centres & boutiques, a huge range of restaurants, and other tourism attractions.
Hotels Surfers Paradise generally have high standards of service. Several international hotel groups, as well as local hotel chains, have a presence on the Gold Coast. If you're happy and satisfied with your accommodation and staff service, there's a chance that you may return, or stay in their other branded properties in other cities.
Also, the larger, higher STAR rated hotels attract international guests, and are likely to have multilingual staff.
Room with a view? Several high-rise hotels have ocean views - unfortunately, this cannot be guaranteed if you're booking a standard room.
However, hotels will generally do their best to meet your request if they're able. When you're booking online, add an appropriate comment in the 'special request' section of the form, and then politely follow up when you check in at reception.
