“Great value serviced-apartments!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Very well-kept, beautifully-designed spacious apartment hotel. As a family of five, a three-bedroom apartment was perfectly convenient for us. The unit had two bathrooms and included free laundry which was a definite plus. The area is more residential so it was nice and quiet, yet it was still close enough to take a quick taxi ride to Surfer's Paradise. We ended up renting a car for the next day so that we could see more of the Gold Coast. We were pleasantly surprised by the low $5 parking fee when everything else in Australia seemed so expensive. This property is well worth the money. The property does not serve food, however, it included several takeaway menus and there are some nearby restaurants. We ended up having breakfast every morning at the lovely Paris Cafe just around the corner. Consider this an option for the family-oriented.

Good morning hashbrowny,

Thank you for taking the time to complete an online review of Meriton Southport, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The three bedroom apartments are very spacious- perfect for families who want a home away from home rather than small hotel rooms. I will pass on your feedback to Demi owner of Paris cafe that you loved her breakfasts!!
Thank you again for your review.

kind regards,

This is the first time I have stayed here, but I have used Meriton before. As usual, this is a well-maintained property, the service has been excellent, and the 2-room, 2-bathroom apartment is fantastic. The "water views" are probably going to go when they start to build the next tower block....but as a home away from home you are going to be hard pressed to beat these apartments.
The rooms are clean and modern - well-appointed and well-equipped. There is nothing to complain about except.....and I ALWAYS look for this when I stay at any hotel.....there is no steam iron! I would be better off with a hot brick! Really? In this day and age?? Can the owners please spend the extra $20 and provide a steam iron!!!
We secured an online 20% discount that really made it incredibly good value. There is secure parking, there is a swimming pool (for a cooling dip, not laps!), and you are close enough to most of the beaches, restaurants etc to be able to relax.
Overall, this is a really good package and this is a short review because there is nothing bad to say....you can't fault it. I am not a fan of the Gold Coast, but if you have to spend time on the Gold Coast...make the best of a bad deal and stay here.

Good Afternoon N0FixedAb0de,

Thank you very much for the wonderful review of our property. The property is definitely well maintained, the staff and management take much pride in the product we provide for our guests. I would like to mention that although not standard in the apartment, we do have many steam irons at the property. Next visit please leave a note in your booking or advise reception and we would be happy to have one placed in the apartment for you.
Thank you again N0FixedAb0de and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

kind regards,

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment before taking an international flight the next day. The apartment was modern, clean and tidy, overlooking a garden area. I have stayed several times before, and have always been delighted with the outcome. Although, not a beach front property it is centrally located and convenient to public services if required. Excellent value for money in a region where many hotels are tired and outdated, glad to saythe Meriton apartments in Southport is not one of these - it is fairly new and fresh with modern furnishings and equipped kitchens and bathrooms.

Good afternoon 4peopleonthego,

Thank you for your trip advisor review of the property, we certainly appreciate your return business with us. The complex is almost about to have its 2nd birthday in Feb 2013, all credit must go to the staff who keep the apartments and surrounds in excellent condition.
Thank you again for the review and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

We've spend a week in a beautiful one bedroom apartment. The place is new, clean and the staff is very friendly. The bedroom was really big and the kitchen really well equipped - we even had a dishwasher!!!It's in a good location, just 5 minutes walk form the rockpool foreshore and 3 km from noisy and messy Surfers Paradise. We'll definetely stay again!

I was delighted by these apartments, well appointed with everything you could need, great beds and bathrooms. Very good value for money. The location suited us very well, only 15 - 20 mins walk to Marina MIrage and the surf beach and 5 - 10 mins walk to the flat water beach. All the local attractions were easily accessible by car. Stayed there twice on our last trip and would stay again.

We stayed here for 2 nights for our wedding in a 2 bedroom apartment.
Everything was perfect. The rooms were clean, the staff were very helpful.
We had photos in the lobby which was not a problem with the staff.
Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We were on the 11th floor with a waterview which was amazing.

We stayed for 4 nights, and what a comfy 4 nights that was. Our apartment was clean, re-cleaned and restocked everyday and with ample amenities and utensils that enabled us to cook and look after ourselves.
All the staff were friendly and approachable!

Only downside is that the theme park buses are always full at the closest stop (as its the last on the line).

We will be back for sure!

Good morning KellyD1990,

Thank you for taking the time to complete a Trip Advisor review of the property. Its great you found the apartment to be comfortable with everything you needed. Its disappointing to hear the local bus service being so full, the Gold Coast has been very busy with holiday crowds this Christmas/ New Year. In these busy holiday periods i would even suggest booking a seat on the door to door bus services. At least this way you are guaranteed a seat on the bus, these door to door can be a little more restrictive with pick-up and departures times however.
Thank you again for your review.

Kind regards,

Meriton Serviced Apartment Management
