With a nice unit and good views of the river we were pleasantly surprised. The unit was clean and the staff friendly. This place is in the heart of Surfers Paradise but in a more quiet area near the river. Walk anywhere and the buses to all attractions are less than 100 metres away. Shopping is in abundance and clubs... More

Stayed at The Moorings for the sixth time and once again I won't be looking anywhere else next time. Apartment was on the 13th floor and apart from some crazy people screaming and yelling rather loudly on Saturday night, it was an another amazing experience.

Even though the Unit was a bit tired, was very pleased with Moorings, not too crowded and management very helpful when there was a mix up with guest numbers. The Moorings' location is hard to beat with all amenities around. The only downside is the loud road noise which meant windows had to be kept closed but all in all... More

Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights. Found it very comfortable and in a great location. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend for those wanting to be close to the action in Surfers but don't want the high prices of some of the more we'll know hotels.

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.
