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

Have stayed at The Shore on 3 separate occassions over the past 3 years. Have seen 2 different apartments - large and both looking a bit tired. But nothing a fresh coat of paint and some updated furniture couldn't fix. Kitchens would benefit with some updated items also. Staff have always been very friendly and accommodating.

Good location, beach views, friendly staff. Located across from the beach, tram station at the bottom of the street. Room was a pretty poor, mould on curtains and no lights working in main room. The spa and pool area were kept very tidy. Spa was great to relax in. The cafe down stair was the highlight of our stay the... More

The lady who checked us in was a delight. Friendly and she accommodated for our early arrival. The room is OK, don't expect luxury, but do expect a brilliant view. You don't get much, two towels, a bath mat, one small soap and one roll of toilet paper ( we stayed for 3 days!) The bed isn't the most comfortable,... More

Thank you for your comments. I don't believe we say that we are luxury accommodation but do cater for the 3 star unserviced apartment accommodation market quite well. We always welcome input of course as we want to get better and offer more than expected where we can. Your comments are greatly appreciated - and we offer additional bathroom and... More

Had the nightmare of staying at this hotel during my stay at Surfer's Paradise. I booked an apartment here based on the reviews of this website (doubt I'll be using TripAdvisor again). I didn't expect luxury, but this was beyond disgusting. - holes in the walls - ancient furniture - no heating/ air conditioning - weak lock on doors (safety?)... More

My recent stay at 'the shore' was really wonderful. To be honest it was more than what we expected with clean linen, good facilities and above all fantastic views of the ocean. I would definitely consider staying at 'the shore' for our next holiday in gold coast and also recommend it to others. It is very next to the beach... More

Short walk down to cavill mall. Right on the beach. Cafe next door and a little shop around the block. Nice pool and nice staff.you can catch the bus right from the airport and then it is just a short walk to these apartments.

Thank you for your comments liziecullen. We are very lucky to have such a great location right near the beach and not far from everything. The light rail opening up just outside now also means that you can get from our front door to the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Jupiters Casino without having to drive. You will have to... More
