The Australis Sovereign Hotel is situated around 200 metres back from Surfers Paradise beach and a little under a kilometre north of Cavill Avenue.
It has 180 reasonably spacious non-smoking rooms, suites and spa suites – all with air conditioning, balcony, cable television & pay-per-view movies, a fridge and internet access.
While the hotel is self-rated at four stars, this is arguably a little over generous and it could perhaps more realistically be considered a three star level of accommodation: a bit of TLC would definitely be beneficial.
Hotel facilities include 24 hour room service, a decent pool, a gymnasium and sauna, a games room and barbeque area. The courtyard area is nice, too. For dining and drinks there is Flavours Restaurant and Bar, which overlooks the pool.
There is indoor and open-air seating, and the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, while you can enjoy a drink at the bar from midday onwards.
If you are looking for a comfortable, no-frills hotel not too far from the beach and walking distance to all the attractions in Cavill Avenue, then the Australis Sovereign Hotel is certainly worth considering. It does have a bit of a seen-slightly-better-days feel, but with the right deal it offers very good value accommodation in a good location.
The Australis Sovereign Hotel is located at 138 Ferny Avenue in Surfers Paradise. Telephone: (07) 5579 3888. Website
