With two friends visiting from overseas wanting to see the attractions of the Gold Coast a search of Trip Advisor turned up The Shore Beachfront Apartments. As we would be using buses to get around we needed a place to stay that was close to the beach, shops, eateries and public transport access. The Shore Beachfront, in the heart of... More

Stayed there for 5 nights in February. The room looked nice with decorations but no hair dryer, toothbrush or shampoo etc. So be prepared to bring your own for all of those. The location was a bit from the surfers paradise centre, about 1km walk that takes about 15 minutes. So be aware if you mind walking, this is not... More

We stayed at the Shore for 4 nights just before Christmas. It's located in a pretty awesome spot, across the road from the beach in surfers. It's about a 10-15min walk from Cavill Avenue so you're far enough away to escape the business of the city but still close enough to do everything. The apartment was huge which was great.... More

I got this 7 night stay off a Groupon so I can't complain about the price but even if I was to be offered it again, even at half the price I paid, I would not go. The room was fine, spacious, good kitchen, nice views and all that, but what I value more than anything is service. When we... More

Tidy, clean and right on the beach - what more could you want?! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the location is great, directly opposite the beach and so close to the tram stop. Highly recommend - it is great value for money :)

We have just returned from a great week at The Shore. The views were fabulous and the room was fantastic for the price and the staff were friendly. Yes it was a little dated but very comfortable and with all the amenities you need. Nice little pool and spa as well as a BBQ area. You may not worry about... More
