“Excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Very pleased with the location and service. Just across the road to restaurants and pubs, and a five minute walk to be on the beach. Staff helpful and answered queries re theme parks and attractions.

when we started planning our trip to the Gold Coast we were very cautious when it come to booking our accommodation. Fortunately, everyone that had written a review on this site and others were very helpful. You are never just quite too sure what you are going to end up with. Thankfully we were NOT disappointed at all, from the moment we arrived outside of office hours on a Sunday, to the ease of gaining entry and getting to our room. Once in our room the view was awesome, as too was the room itself. Everything you need and more! Upon meeting Margaret and Erin the next morning it was like catching up with a couple of old friends you hadn't seen for a while, very helpful and always willing to stop for a chat and help come up with ideas on what to do the following days etc. The location was superb, less than 3 minutes to the heart of Surfers and yet far enough away not to hear all the goings on ( this may have been helped by the fact we were on the 14th floor and had double glazing) All the facilities in both the room and the property itself were fantastic..Overall, an excellent location, apartment, facilities and staff. Hopefully we will be back in the not too distant future.

The Moorings has the combination of fabulous service, fabulous position and amenities. From the moment we entered Margaret went out of her way to be helpful. Our apartment was spotless, it had all we needed and views to die for. Our sons were in the pool and spa every morning and evening. We were walking distance to supermarkets and restaurants, and only a short drive to Harbourtown or Pacific Fair.For a real value for money week for the family I highly recommend The Moorings.

Really a well worth it place to stay. Excellent value for money. Perfect for young couples who like to go to the beach and party at night. Just a 5 min walk to the beach, restaurants and clubs. The bus stop was just outside. Parking was also safe since it is locked and allocated per room number. Close to woolworths as well. Room was very clean and bed was really comfortable. Everything was complete from the kitchen to the dining room. We also had an iphone dock speaker in our lounge. The view was great and water pressure in toilet was awesome. I would definitely check in at Moorings everytime im at Surfers Paradise.

My friends and I stayed for 7 nights in the two bedroom, self-serviced apartment which surpassed out wildest dreams - beautifully rennovated and kept, clean, pristine and complete with a washing machine and dryer!

It was perfect for our group, with an unmatched veiw of the river and city skyline. We were able to come and go as we pleased, either eating out at the easily accessible restaurants, pubs and bars or cooking for ourselves in the completely outfitted kitchen.

The location is amazing, a 2 minute work from the theme park bus stops and groceries, gyms, atms and shops all within a five to ten minute walk.

On top of this were the incredible staff - Margaret and Peter the owners are delightful - so incredibly helpful and cheerful, Margaret provided the best service I have had at a hotel internationally in terms of personalised care and interest. Not to mention the impeccable behaved, gorgeous Jackson the dog.

A gem of a place, definitely will be a repeat visitor.

Couldn't speak more highly of the staff that work at the front desk. They always answered my emails about my booking promptly and politely and when I met them, I was not disappointed. They let me keep my hire car on site for the last day of our trip as well, as we did not take off until 7pm. The property is in a great location. Easy to walk up to the hustle and bustle of Cavill Ave, easy access to public transport, great views of the river, but not too noisy. The room we had was on the second to top level, so we enjoyed great views. Didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. Easy access to the car parking area. Certain areas of the room definitely could have used some TLC, but nothing that affected our stay at all. Overall I probably wouldn't stay here again, but that is mostly due to my personal preference of having hotel style service. I would definitely recommend to people who prefer a more homely apartment type accommodation. Would be perfect for young families. Thanks again to the staff there - they were extremely helpful.
