Surfers Riverside apartments are very clean, comfortable and only a 5 minute walk to Cavill ave. We booked a two bedroom apartment that far exceeded our expectations. The whole apartment was clean and well serviced. There was a cook top, microwave, large fridge/freezer, plenty of crockery and cutlery and a spacious kitchen. The washing machine and dryer were extremely handy... More

A very centrally located apartment for the families. A neatly and well equipped appartment which is just 5 minutes walking distance from the beach. Has most of the facilities in proximity. Property value for money

We arrived a weekend where we stayed in Surfers Riverside, in a 2 bedroom apartment for 12 days. The apartment was very nice, clean and close to Surfer. Away from noise and that's all we needed for our stay. We were kindly welcomed by the managers of the hotel. Thank you for these unforgettable vacation.

We stayed at Surfers Riverside apartments for 5 days during October 2014. We had a family group of 9 and stayed in 3 separate apartments. The apartments were lovely and clean and quiet and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. Pool area was lovely and looked over the river. They were in a brilliant location - just...

We arrived with a booking of 20 people, from the moment we arrived nothing but disappointment, kids having to sleep on lounges because they didn't have enough beds, the light and fan in the bedroom didn't work at all. The rooms were absolutely disgusting, the showers were filthy and mouldy .TV had no remote. We were asked if we would... More

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. A little piece of paradise a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Sufers Paradise while being close enough to the action. Unit 6 is the pick of the Unit block with a... More
