When I arrived, My first impression was " it wasn't that bad as some reviews described " my room was clean, bed was quite comfy.... More

I have stayed here a few times and in the last year it has undergone a change of management, while I loved being looked after Pete, Jess and little Ari the old management team the new owners take a more professional approach and aren't as laid back, which is not a bad thing I just missed that friendly personal touch...

Ok so the price of the apartment was pretty average. But thats no excuse to leave the apartment unclean. When we arrived we found food that had been left from the previous people who stayed. The washing machine, dryer, showers were disgusting and dusty. Our outdoor furniture was broken. Alot of blinds in the room were missing. Pots and pans... More

Over the weekend of the 4 & 5th July, 2014, spent 2 nights at the Surfers Riverside Apartments staying in Unit 6.

Our family of four stayed here in a two bedroom apartment for 5 nights over Easter and school holidays. We have very mixed feelings about our stay. For the price I wasn't expecting flash but clean and nice. Location is great, a very short walk to Cavill Ave, shops and restaurants, supermarket. Size of the apartment is also good, plenty... More

Just stayed in unit 6 whilst visiting for a conference. It was recommended to me and lived up to all my expectations. This unit has been newly renovated and furnished and has awesome views of the water. It also has a huge outdoor living area and direct access to the pool. Definitely the best unit in the block.

We went into this unit not expecting much, and it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. For the cheap price you are paying its alright. I'm sure there's more expensive places out there that are worse. The 2 bedroom unit itself was decently sized, and was generally clean. The ensuite shower need a good scrub, but the main bath...

We arrived at approximately 2.10pm on the Sunday (5/1/2014). Reception was not open!!! The phone just before the gate was very hard to get working and when it did we had to leave a message for management to find out how do we get in. Guess what: there was no answer: 3 times we tried. We were fortunate that the... More
