Just the Right Spot in Surfers Paradise

Everything Within Walking Distance

Situated in Surfers Paradise right on Surfers Paradise Boulevard, a street full of shops, restaurants, and nightlife, is the Hotel Grand Chancellor. Right next to the hotel is the Cavill Mall, which includes a Hard Rock Cafe, Woolworths, and lots of smaller shops. It only takes a few minutes to walk to the beach. There you'll find specific swimming areas watched by lifeguards, so you can have fun while staying safe. With so many restaurants and attractions nearby, including buses that can transport you to the major theme parks, you can avoid the hotel's parking fee and go carless.

On-site Restaurant and Outdoor Pool

Start the day with the breakfast buffet at Hanlan's Restaurant or order room service and eat in your room. If you'd rather avoid the sand for now, head to the pool where you can take a dip or bask in the sunshine. Rather be more active? Check out the fitness center, which features treadmills, rowing machines, and weights. Bring along a tennis racket and you can work on your game day or night at the hotel's lighted tennis court.

At the end of the day, check out one of the many local restaurants or head back to Hanlan's for dinner. It's known for its seafood buffet with fresh crab, oysters, prawns, and other international cuisine. While the restaurant is only open for breakfast and dinner, the bar is open throughout the day. Here you can get coffee and breakfast, quick snacks and ready-made sandwiches or salad, or order some cocktails.

Budget Rooms With Updated Decor

The rooms range from a standard twin room up to a premium king spa room with an ocean view. All rooms come with an LCD TV, air conditioning, refrigerator, coffee maker, and hair dryer. Choose a room that is on a higher floor and away from the mall side if having a quiet room is essential to you. The side with the mall can get very noisy late into the night because of the music from nightclubs.

The Bottom Line

Because of its location and pricing, many find the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Surfers Paradise a great option for a relaxing vacation to the Gold Coast. Though it's not one of the higher-end hotels found in the area, it's a respectable choice for many travelers and well worth the price.
