All about: Gold Coast accommodation

The Gold Coast of Australia is one of the country’s top holiday destinations for both Australians and overseas visitors. The Gold Coast tourism area, with its activities galore, has a sun and fun attitude that includes surfing and bungee jumping. Read the guide below to learn about cheap accommodation on the Gold Coast.

What is included?

Gold Coast holiday accommodation Along the Gold Coast, there are over 600 choices of holiday accommodation available. These choices cover just about every budget from the cheapest hostels to expensive resorts. Air conditioning This is available in most hotels but not necessarily in apartments on the Gold Coast. If it is not listed prominently in the detailed description of the accommodation, then it is usually not included. If it states fans, then that will usually mean a ceiling fan. If air conditioning in the humid conditions is a necessity, then check when making your booking. Beachfront Many apartments are listed as beachfront. However, beachfront apartments may not be actually what you are thinking. Many beachfront apartments can be several minutes walk from the beach. Therefore, it is best to check carefully if beachfront accommodation is important to you.

Extras to be aware of

Car parking Many areas along the Gold Coast have no allocation for car parking and what is available is patrolled-making fines for overstaying a parking space. It is best to check whether parking is available and at what cost. Extra beds Many apartments on the Gold Coast will be listed for up to four people in a one-bed apartment. There is a bed for two people to share but the remaining two have to sleep on a sofa bed. This may be suitable for a night or two but not for longer stays. Location There are some accommodations which do not provide clear information as to where they are located. What is listed as close to the centre should not be a bus ride away. Use something like Google maps to check how far your accommodation really is before booking. Room rates Check carefully the small print for additional guests staying in rooms. The price is usually charged on the basis of two adults sharing a room. Read carefully for surcharges regarding three or four adults sharing an apartment. You may even have to pay additional fees for children in some cases.
