Am I guaranteed to stay in the particular apartment I book?
Yes. On rare occasions, due to circumstances outside our control, it can be necessary to move guests from one apartment to a like apartment (subject to availability). If this is the case, we will notify the Guest as soon as possible and make every reasonable effort to make sure you are satisfied with the alternative accommodation provided. This move more often than not results in a free upgrade for our Guests.
Are the apartment photos taken for the particular apartment?
Yes, apartment photos displayed on GCHR.com.au were taken internally from within the subject apartment.
Are the availability calendars accurate?
Yes, the availability calendars are updated when ever a new booking has been processed.
Check in/ checkout times
Unless prior arrangements have been made, check-in time is after 2.00 pm and checkout time is no later than 10.00 am. On departure, the property should be left in a similar state to its condition on arrival.
At the end of your stay, upon departure please return all keys and FOB sets to our office.
How do we check-in?
What do we do if, after arriving at the resort, we find our FREE car space is taken?
Parking is a valuable commodity in Surfers Paradise! Unfortunately, though our best efforts are made to ensure each guest has access to one (sometimes two) free car parks, on occasion direct guests of the resorts mistakenly park in our car spaces. In these circumstances, please park where you are able to for the interim time. If you are a guest of our Orchid Residences, please feel welcome to park anywhere marked with a red “H”. For all other resorts, please take a photograph of the registration of the car parked in your space and forward this to us via email. This will be forwarded to resort reception for their information and attention as soon as possible.
