“a true gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I travel a lot for both work and pleasure, and would place this apartment hotel in the top 10% of places I've stayed over the years.

My wife and I stayed here for a month on a work assignment, and we could not have hoped for a better combination of value, comfort, and hospitality from Liz and Steve Craig.

We had a one bedroom apartment which was perfectly clean when we arrived. We found the space, the furniture, and the appliances all met our needs quite well, and the location was ideally positioned between Surfers and Broadbeach. With the exception of a big family reunion in the BBQ area one night (out of 30), we were never disturbed by any noise from inside or outside the building. Even that party noise died down by 10 pm.

If we ever return to the Gold Coast, I know that Warringa Surf will be our first choice for accommodation.

I stayed here with my father for a conference and we were pleasantly surprised. We paid a very reasonable price for a 2 bedroom apartment which was spacious , well furnished and very very clean. The lawns are well maintained as it everything else. The place is not that new but it is very well kept. we had all we needed close by and the service was impeccable ! We even extended out stay and management even gave use a cheaper rate for doing so. Would def recommend this to anyone looking for affordable accommodation in the Gold Coast. It's just minutes to most attractions

We stayed here for three nights. The room was very spacious and had everything we needed. The living room area was very modern and new. Elizabeth was incredibly helpful in helping us determine how to get to various locations via public transport, and also was happy to help us book transport to the Outback Spectacular.
It was only about a 20 minute walk to Surfers Paradise, or a 5 minute trip by bus, the stop for which is just around the corner from Warringa.
Our only unfortunate issue, at no real fault of the owner, was that when we were there, the wind was *very* strong at night and we were on the top floor. The way the windows are built, the wind made a LOT of noise through the windows, making it difficult to sleep. If this was to be fixed/renovated, this would have been a five-star stay.
In general, however, we had an excellent stay, and for the price, I would highly recommend this place!

Dear Aniashime,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of Warringa Surf. We are so lpeased you enjoyed your stay and found our accommodation suitable for your holidays and our location ideal for your needs.
I note your comment on the noise from the wind through the window. Of course noise will depend on the direct of the wind and how strong it is. I am happy to let you know that we are in the process of having bedroom windows replaced by awning windows, so hopefully noise from wind on the top floors will no longer be an issue.
Hope to see you again soon on your next holiday to the Gold Coast.
Regards
Liz and Steve Craig (Managers).

Dear John,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Warringa Surf. It is great to hear you enjoyed your accommodation and our hospitality. We agree our 2 bedroom Deluxe is a lovely spacious apartment and offers great views from the wrap around balcony .

We hope your next stay with us can be longer so you have time to explore all that the Gold Coast and surrounding Hinterland have to offer.

Situated between Surfers Paradise & Broadbeach gave us convenient access to this two happening places. We were greeted by Elizabeth & Steve upon arrival, which made us felt at home. Their warm hospitality eased our tiredness of a long drive from Rathdowney. Elizabeth's helpful explanation on the areas around the apartment helped us planned our activities. Our standard two bedroom apartment have a great view of the ocean from the balcony & the beach is about 200m from the apartment. The apartment is spacious, tidy & with it fully equipped kitchens - made our stay comfortable, & got us going on our own. The neighborhood is quiet at night time helped us to unwind.

Elizabeth & Steve, we thank you for hosting our family & making our stay at Gold Coast a memorable one.

This is an apartment just like 90% of the Gold Coast accommodations according to some sources. Compared to many hotels this is a luxury place in the ~70e per night range that we paid. The room was very clean and big for two people. It's an apartment where one could live for a longer period of time.
If you want service you better pick up a hotel as there is no daily cleaning etc but we are more than happy not to have those things and be more like at home.
It's 20min walking to Surfer's Paradise center and main beaches. Some people may want to look for something a bit closer from there. If closer to Broad Beach is enough, this is a perfect place.

Dear Tampere,

We would like to thank you for your review of Warringa Surf apartments and are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned, Self contained apartments do run differently from Hotel accommodation as there are no daily services or cleans.
The best thing abour self contained apartments is that you have all your basic needs to cater for yourselves, Unlike hotel rates, we manage to keep our tariffs affordable as guests look after themselves.
We appreciate you also mentioning our location. Being between two cental tourist locations, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, makes Warringa Surf the ideal place to stay.
We hope to see you again when you next holiday on the Gold Coast.

Our first visit in Australia was wonderful in this hotel!! I strongly recommend it! Location, services and the hospitable receptionists! The view of the apartment and the facilities provided are fantastic! We borrowed a voltage converter from the hotel and we left GC and on our way back to the airport we gave it back and they treated respectfully! I appreciate them:) Thank you!
