This Meriton was the usual style.
Good things - 10 mins walk to Australia Fair mall, close to hospitals if you have business there, and a stones throw from the new light rail, which should be finished 2014 I think. The apartment was very clean, two lovely balconies, and good quality toaster, kettle etc. crockery etc all in good supply. There was a couple of places to eat and a small convenience store a minutes walk away.
Bad things - no gym on site, no full length mirror, low level lighting in the bathroom, and my bedside table jutted into the doorway, so this meant the door was ajar by about 6 inches. Obviously the king size bed needs to be downgraded to a queen size. This was annoying because if you use the heater or aircon, air disappears right out the door into the lounge.
Wouldn't have a problem staying here again, and I got a fanatic rate online.
A corner room has 2 balconies and more light.

Thank you for your recent stay at Meriton Southport and for providing your feedback for other travelers to read before either staying or deciding on whether to stay. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you will be returning in the future.
Meriton Southport is in a good location as you mentioned and without being right in the middle of everything you can still walk to Australia Fair and the main st in Southport. We are also very excited for when the light rail will be finished as there is a stop within walking distance to us and will make getting around for travelers much easier if you don't have a car. The light rail should be finished and operational in 2014.
I am sorry to hear that you had a few issues with the room. There are only a handful of rooms that don't have a full length mirror on the wardrobe and unfortunately you received one of those rooms. Should you stay again we can definitely allocate a room with one for you.
I have passed onto maintenance the lighting issue in the bathroom so he can ensure that the light bulbs are strong enough to create a bright bathroom as without natural light we rely solely on the lights in there, I apologise they were not to standard for you.
Unfortunately we do not have a gym here at our Southport property as you mentioned, however we do have an affiliation with a gym close by which allows our guests to use at a discounted rate.
Again thank you for taking the time to provide feedback, every piece of feedback we receive helps us to grow and improve on the services and standards we provide.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our property on your next visit.
