The beds and furniture were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with equipment, although the glasses and crockery required a wash before use. The apartment was... More

Handy location to Surfers main arcade - only 5-10 minutes to everywhere in Surfers. Clean apartments - ideal for families. Friendly staff. Parking underneath. Pool popular with kids - well sheltered from wind.

Anchor Down apartments are centrally located within an easy walk to the main area of Surfers Paradise. With undercover secure parking and away from the noise of the clubs etc it is a great place for families. Our family with two small children has stayed here twice without any complaint. The apartments are clean and roomy with excellent facilities. The... More

We stayed here after a last minute change in our holiday plans over the long weekend during the terrible storm. Erika was so accommodating and offered us a great apartment. Rates were very affordable. Apartments were clean and modern. We were very happy here and would definitely stay again. Fantastic location!!!! Loved the pool and spa!!!!
