“Roydon apartments, beautiful one day, perfect the next”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Had yet another beautiful stay at the Roydon Beach Front
apartments. Every time we stay, we wish we could stay longer. Everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday across the road from the beautiful Trinity Beach.
Spotless apartments, grounds, pool and barbeque area.
Eddie and Julie are fantastic hosts. No wonder we keep going back.

Great place for a family vacation. Got upgraded to a three bedroom apartment which was perfect for our family of two adults and two kids. The apartment was very clean and HUGE, including a nice big balcony. Two of the bedrooms as well as the living room and balcony had ocean views.

Location is perfect: right across the beach with lots of restaurants nearby.

Service was super friendly, the manager showed us everything we needed to know. Nice and quiet pool area was a favourite place to hang out. There was also a BBQ area which we used one night. The set-up was different from the BBQ we have in Canada but it worked just fine in the end.

a great place - ticked all the boxes! we chose roydon based purely on trip advisor reviews in conjunction with price, and we were not disappointed. unit very spacious, super clean and well appointed. loved how the room was cleaned and the sheets changed after a short while - a lovely surprise. beds were super comfy too! owner eddie was so helpful and friendly, as were the cleaning staff. he deserves all the great reviews this places gets. i'd definitely recommend roydon to anyone and will certainly do so. thank you!

Room Tip: ground floor room great for kids as they open onto spacious lawn.

with the previous reports this was everything as expected, we were give a first floor front triple room room for the 2 of us, great sea views. Everything in the room we required including picnic sets and cooler box.
there was a choice of 2 pools and BBQ areas and with a 3.00 pm checkout the week long stay was spot on.
the location was on the sea front with a 600 mt beach across the road, there was a safe swim area 200 mt away, had to use this because of the stingers. either side of the apartments were the local pub and behind a bottle shop, choice of 8 eateries within 2 minute walk, local store on the corner with a mid sized supermarket and good butchers 10 minutes walk away.
We managed without a car for the week choosing pre booked tours for Karunda and the Reef and used the local bus service . There was a large Mall 10 minutes drive away but the bus service went there anyway, this had Coles and Woolworths

Room Tip: all rooms looked good use Eddie for local info and best prices

If you are looking for a perfect place to stay, in a perfect setting, then stop searching, because you just found it. That's what happened to us, and that's why we recently returned for our second stay at Roydon Apartments. Most mornings found us on the beach at dawn, watching the turtles and talking to the friendly locals. These apartments are beautiful, spacious and they are equipped with everything you could possibly need, but the best thing about them is not what you find inside. Its the location, the view of the Coral Sea beach from your balcony, the accessibility of good shops, good restaurants, local transport, great holiday excursions etc while still being in a small quiet community. The friendly reception and the practical help provided by Eddie and Julie make this a most remarkable place to stay. We will definitely be back, again.

Room Tip: The road between the apartments and the beach is a quiet cul-de-sac, so, if you want a room with a...

Had the most fantastic 18 nights at Royden apartments , Had booked 1 bed apartment but were upgraded to a fabulous 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment facing the beach. The apartment was immaculate and spacious and had everything you could need . The apartment was very comfortable with great air conditioning and several ceiling fans. Eddie was very welcoming and helpful and booked a couple of trips for us.We had the best time ever and this was the favourite part of our trip to Australia, loved the laid back vibe of Trinity Beach. Would love to return some time and would not hesitate to recommend Royden to anyone visiting the area.

We were guests from the UK and had been in Australia for only a week before our daughter and son-in-law whisked us up north from Brisbane to spend a week at the Roydon Beachfront Apartments with our two granddaughters. The apartment was on the top floor overlooking the beach. It was spacious and very well provided with every utensil that we could possibly need. The bedrooms were large and the beds were very comfortable. Eddie and Julie could not have been more welcoming. Eddie helped us to arrange woderful trips We all were regular uses of the lovely swimming pool. It is nearly a year ago that we were staying with them - how we wish were with them now instead of suffering the cold and damp of an English winter!

Room Tip: Top floor with balcony overlooking the ocean.
