we chose Moorings because of its location. we found the apartment to be quite spacious and very clean. Downside, bed was quite uncomfortable, to the point, we woke with sore backs. Room did not keep out noise from street. would only return if could get guarantee bed was better.

Location- very convenient. Everything is within a few minutes walk: the beach, the mall, the supermarket, the tram stop. Traffic comes with the location, but this is a small price to pay for such convenience. View- fantastic. Ours was straight up the river and wide thanks to the low level rooftops of Chevron Island on the far bank. Getting such... More

As soon as we walked through the front door, the apartment took our breath away, the view was amazing. My usual apartment wasn't available for our trip and I was so disapointed, as I had my elderly parents with us and didn't need any complications, however I am very thankful they called the Moorings in for a favour for me....

Stay here for just under a week, and had a lovely apartment on the 10th floor. Clear, spacious and conveniently located. The pool area extended out to a under cover BBQ area which was fantastic for the warm nights of winter. We had a 2 bed apartment with an en suit which was great.

This apartment is not new. Please do not expect new, nice looking rooms, with new furniture. The moment I walked in, I did not quite like the room, as I find that the room was dated, the air-con compressor at the balcony was rusty.
