Quiet spot just far enough from Surfers that you feel totally away from the rat race but then only a short stroll to the shops if you run out of supplies. Accommodation was of a high standard, clean, spacious and comfortable with additional inclusions like surround sound and Ipod docking station. Immaculate gardens and lawns feature all around and then... More

We came to the spectrum to escape the pre Christmas madness and what a wonderful decision that was.. The spectrum is perfectly located, has totally amazing views up the river, a comfortably well decorated apartment, with all the comforts of home and a refreshing pool and BBQ area. To top this off the manger is friendly and was always available... More

We stayed the Spectrum Hotel for a week and the rooms to be clean and the unit well maintained the pool was fantastic and used the BBQ area on many occasions. The Spectrum Hotel was close to everything we used the new trams to get around in and enjoyed our stay, would definitely recommend this Hotel to anyone

Really enjoyed the time at the Spectrum apartments. Great location being tucked away from the traffic noise yet still a quick 5 minute stroll to all the action. Loved the view onto the river, really peaceful. Great facilities and apartments welled equipped and most importantly clean! Nothing was too much trouble and manager most helpful and obliging. A good nights... More

Absolutely beautiful room, very clean and comfortable. Only discrepancy is the curtains not block out curtains so sleeping in on our holiday a little difficult. Excellent position of units, easy access to all facilities on the coast as well as close proximity to tram. Would have no problems rebooking accomodation. Thanks spectrum for an awesome stay.

With the new management at Spectrum the whole experience has been taken up a notch or two. Highly recommend these apartments for quality and service and they are ideally located within walking distance of shops and restaurants.

It was lovely watching all the activities on the river both by day and night. Then it is only a short stroll to the action packed centre and the magnificent beach. The unit had everything that was needed; comfortable beds, easy furniture and a fully equipped kitchen. The management staff was really friendly and helpful and they arranged transport back... More

Under new management the Spectrum is a gem. My husband and I stayed for two weeks in November and it was great. The location at Budds beach is quiet and being on the river you have wonderful views, and spetacular sunsets. The apartment was very comfortable and very well set up. There are only 3 units per floor so it... More
