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

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

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

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

Thanks Lady_Mergon, so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and our spectacular Surfers Paradise beachside location. Having the restaurant downstairs is indeed a wonderful bonus when staying with us and their roast is worth a try. We hope we see you again, or perhaps some of your family and friends, in the future.

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.
