Scotland House – Home from Home on the Gold Coast

Back by popular demand, Commonwealth Games Scotland is opening a ‘Scotland House’ alongside the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Scotland House will be hosted at the Mantra on View Hotel, in the heart of the famous Surfers Paradise, just 160m from the beach. The first floor mezzanine level will be transformed into a welcoming home from home, for visiting supporters to watch the action and celebrate Scotland’s sporting success. It will also host a range of events linked to the Games, as well as hosting Team Scotland press conferences and post competition media activity.

Scotland House will also include a tranquil space for Team Scotland athletes and their families and friends to meet in private and relax before and after competition.

Following the official opening on 2 April, Scotland House will open daily until Sunday 15 April inclusive and is being run in conjunction with EventScotland and VisitScotland. There will be an information desk open from 0800hrs to 0930hrs, with Scotland House being fully open from 1000hrs to 2300hrs and later on some evenings where required.

The hotel is close to a G:Link tram stop at Cypress Avenue, only 100m away. This goes to the Athletes Village via a number of Games venues at Broadwater Parklands (Triathlon and Marathon) and Southport (Swimming) or in the opposite direction down to Broadbeach (Lawn Bowls, Netball Preliminaries and the Main Media Centre). Trams will run 24 hours during the Games and can be accessed free of charge with a Games accreditation or event ticket.

Our Scotland House managers Catriona Valentine and Emma Milroy look forward to welcoming you during the Games, along with a team of friendly volunteers.
