Definitely recommended, and would come again. Nice set of renovated apartments. Undercover car park, two lifts, a good sized & well maintained pool, spa, sauna, tennis court (rackets can be hired for small fee), electric barbecues. Friendly manager. We had an apartment quite high up, with a great view up and down the ocean - even saw whales a few times!

Position excellent - just across road from the beach, with a pedestrian crossing with lights. Short walk to Tedder with lots of restaurant choices plus a small grocery.

Drawbacks? Nothing really. The beach had no shade so need to bring something to avoid burning. There was a lifeguard, but definitely a surf beach so not ideal for families. The sound of the surf was quite loud, but you do get used to it!

Room Tip: Try to get a room high up to get the best view!

We stayed here for four nights in a three bed, 2 bath apartment for four nights. Our group comprised three adults and two kids. Have stayed in the GC many times over the past twenty years but this was our first time staying in Main Beach.

The location is very good and as we stayed on level 15, we had great views of the beach and hinterland. The beach is a short walk away and there's a good selection of restaurants and cafes in Tedder Street, also a short walk away.

The unit we rented (46) had been renovated in last twelve months, very neutral, but nice. Particularly impressed by appliances and heaps of utensils, dinner wear, cleaning gear, etc. Generally the place was really well equipped, it's a credit to the owners.

If I had to find fault, the light in the kitchen didn't work, but it was resolved the next day, so more bad luck than bad management. The pool area wasn't very luxurious, OK but not great.

Management / service was great too.

Price was OK, probably could have found something cheaper, but also could easily have spent more for a three b/r unit.

We stayed when the area was preparing for a major race event, so there was a lot of work going on and safety barricades being installed etc.

We recently stayed at the Norfolk for 7 nights in a stunning 3 bedroom apartment, facilities were impeccable, tv and air con in every room, kitchen and lounge facilities in our room and main room with ensuite and king bed! Very reasonable price. One Minute walk to beach and short drive to shopping centre and surfers paradise. Pool and spa facilities located at resort and the temperatures were altered to the weather so you could swim in any weather. Family friendly and the front desk lady was lovely, very welcoming and helpful throughout our whole stay. Would definately stay there again.

Our family of 5 including a 16, 13 and 8 year old recently stayed at Norfolk Luxury apartments and were delighted with our stay. The location is perfect, across the road from a patrolled beach and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of nearby Tedder Avenue.
The 3 bedroom apartment offers great space for everyone and having 2 bathrooms was a blessing, as well as the bonus of the well stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and catching the afternoon sea breeze. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and the bonus of having an on- site tennis court.
The staff at reception were friendly and helpful with any questions we had and made us feel welcome.
This is our go to property when we visit the Gold Coast for future family holidays

We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra night. Our group was 4 adults and 4 children. The apartment allowed plenty of space and privacy for everyone. Kids loved the pool and spa. Great choice for families. Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic stay of six nights on our last leg home after a 9 week trip around Australia on our motorbike.

It was also a chance for our adult children to come up and stay with us for two nights and reminisce on our stay's at Norfolk over the years - our first stay was in 1996.

We have always found Norfolk's accommodation and location fantastic along with Gold Coast weather never disappoints.

We look forward to staying at Norfolk in future.
