The apartment was great and a perfect location with views across the river and Surfers Paradise. The kitchen and bathrooms were a bit dated and good do with modernising to keep in with the rest of the apartment but nothing to affect our stay. The balcony was great to sit out on in the evening and with only a 10... More

I've just spent 3 nights at Spectrum in apartment 502. I requested this apartment as it faces north and captures the breeze in the afternoon and has a lovely big view over Budds Beach across the road and west to the mountains. Any apartment number ending in 2 will have the same aspect. The apartment was very well equipped and... More

Was great location just a few minutes from the middle of surfers. Staff friendly and very helpful. Had a two bedroom apartment on the 10th floor very clean, had aircon and ceiling fans with a magnificent view over river from balcony . Would definitely stay here again.

This is the best location you can find in Surfers. Located on the west side of Surfers away from the noise and with a cozy local feeling, but still in the heart of Surfers. Wonderful views regardless of what side you are facing. The service and staff is exceptional and they will help you with anything.

Our family would holiday to Surfers Paradise once every year and would always stay at Spectrum Holiday Apartments. When the change in management came along they were not as hospitable and kind as the last managers. When we asked them if we could get an apartment at the same rate as we usually got they said no and wanted an... More

Our room had no air conditioner (our fault at booking) but owners gave us 2 fans (and on 15th floor, we got a good cross breeze). The kitchen is dated, the carpet stained & the mattress in the main bed was too hard and lumpy in some spots. However, at $120 a night with a pool, spa & underground carpark,... More

We stayed here for 6 days the appartments are huge, the view is beautiful the people that run it are lovely! The appartment itself is very outdated as in I thought I stepped into 1970, but that didn't phase us we only slept there as we where so busy everyday. I would defiantly stay here again! Great value for money,... More

Have just stayed here for nine nights with my family and had the best time. The view is absolutely stunning and waking up each morning laying in bed watching the hot air balloons land in the mountains is breathtaking. The gardens and surrounds are beautifully maintained, the pool spa area is crystal clear. The staff from the moment you book... More
