Just a few of our Hope Island Hot Spots:
Hope Island Deli
The Hope Island Deli is one of our residents favourite breakfast and lunch spots here at Hope Island. Serving an amazing range of food and delicious coffee, this restaurant ticks all of our boxes!

The Ramada Hotel Hope Harbour is located across the road from the Anchorage Apartments and receives frequent visits from our current residents and other Hope Island locals.
The Hotel puts on weekly, free events for their guests and for the public to attend. Including live music 1-2 times per week and events such as Christmas in July allowing our residents weekly opportunities to socialise with one another and enjoy some free live music with a view!
“From the time we entered the bobby, to the time we checked out, our entire experience at the Ramada Hope Island was awesome. The staff were both friendly and professional. Check in was quick and easy. The room was clean and comfortable, with a good view of the harbour. The room contained ambient amenities. It had a fridge under the sink with milk (no mini-bar items however).”
“Very friendly and helpful staff from reception to cleaners to cafe wait staff. Clean and spacious, comfortable room. View of pool and onto marina. Cafe lunch in the sun, with marina boardwalk; quiet, relaxing. Very good wheelchair access for cafe/restaurant and toilets; we took an elderly, wheelchair bound family member who is resident in an aged care facility nearby to lunch.”
Links Hope Island Golf Club is one of the Gold Coasts finest Resort Golf Courses and located just 4.3 kilometres from the Anchorage Apartments.
Not only does this resort offer a much sought after golf course, it also has a restaurant, a function room for events, an onsite golf shop as well as playing host to events throughout the year such as The Chinese New Year and Christmas in July. Links also holds special events for days like Mother’s Day, Christmas and other holidays throughout the year.
“Easily the best course I have played on in Australia. Greens were smooth as billiard tables and the fairways pristine. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful surroundings. This is a challenging, but very enjoyable course.”
“Its everything that it says in brochures and on website. It’s a must play if in the area.”
“My daughter and son in law had their wedding at the Links last Friday. It was the Best wedding we’d been to.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was superb. Service amazing. They arranged everything from putting dry ice into the fountain in the reception area to an amazing fireworks display that went on for 15 minutes.
The wedding co ordinator was fantastic and very professional.
Thankyou to all the staff at Links. We were extremely happy and highly recommend your wedding and function venue.”
