Beautiful Building Located in a Prime located.. Unfortunately found the Managers let it down. Am appalled by how poorly my Family and I were treated over the GC600 weekend, anyone would think we're schoolies the way we were talked down to, and treated like we did not belong there...If it were a once off occasion then fair enough, but one...

My family have just returned from another fantastic stay at Spectrum apartments - our third in 5 years. Spectrum is in a great location, so peaceful and quiet on the river with beautiful views but so close to everything in Surfers. It's walking distance to supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, takeaways, the beach and Cavill Avenue. The apartment my family stayed in... More

We have just returned from a 3 week stay at the Spectrum Apartments - this has been our 10th year staying at this building. The Apartments just get better and better every year with renovations keeping it modern, clean and tidy. It would be one of the most relaxing spots on the Coast, with tranquil, uninterrupted, panoramic northern views over... More

We have stayed at the Spectrum on two occasions now and never tire of the view, the closeness to Surfers beach itself plus the supermarket and shopping just 2 blocks away. Last time we had the grandchildren with us and Buds Beach just across the road was great, as its a lovely walk to the playground and is across the... More

I have stayed at the Spectrum several years ago and returned for a quick 3 day visit. I chose to stay here because of the central location, views and the quietness. The views over the peaceful Nerang river are always very relaxing. I stayed in apartment 901 on the river end of the building which catches the sun from mid... More

We had a three day break at Spectrum, deliberately chosen to get away from the busyness of Surfers Ocean front. Spectrum was absolutely the right choice. The staff were courteous and helpful. Our two bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was well equipped, clean and of a high standard and the views were excellent. This was one venue that proved to be... More

The building is tucked away at Budds Beach. So you are just a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Surfers Paradise but away from all the noise etc. The view from my apartment just beautiful. There is a coffee shop just down the road a bit. Expensive I thought with a limited menu but looks onto the river. I... More

We stayed here over new years and it was fantastic. We stayed in the 2 bedroom deluxe apartment and we had so much space for ourselves and our 2 boys. The kitchen was well equipped, so had plenty of chances to cook for ourselves. The boys absolutely loved the spa and the pool (my 5 year old actually learnt to... More

Good value - away from the noise and traffic, spacious and comfortable. Large balcony to unwind. Office not always attended, but no problems . Easy parking outside as well as allotted secure car space. Recommended.

Stayed in room 901, a 2 bedroom self contained apartment. Wonderful views and in the perfect location, just a 5 minute walk to the middle of surfers. Quality of the apartments is great! Lots of room for us all to be a family and have our own space when needed. Outdoor pool was a favourite for our little girl. Overall... More
