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

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

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.

This place offers great value for money with million dollar views. The staff were very helpful and we had everything we needed in our very clean and tidy apartment. We particularly loved the views, the constant sound of the sea and the proximity to everything. There is easy access by bus to and from the airport as well. We only... More

Just returned from 12 night stay at Shore. Highly recommend these appartments. Loved waking up to the Sea every morning. Really friendly service from Kay & her staff. Chose here as my son was staying at the hostel opposite. So glad I did! Will see you all again in the near future. Thanks for a lovely stay. Jon.
