“Great location, shabby apartment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

The apartment is in a great location - close to the centre of Surfers but not right in the middle - and has a great view of the sea. However, it was very shabby, particularly the bathrooms where the fittings were rusty, the plaster was chipped and the paint was peeling from the ceiling.

The Seacrest website also states that it has a 25 metre heated lap pool, but the outdoor pool was more like 15 metres and not heated and the indoor heated pool was not long enough to swim laps. As this was one of the reasons we chose to stay there, we felt that the website misrepresented the facilities.

On first walking through the door, our apartment on the 12th floor seemed a little on the old side, but that was all quickly forgotten upon seeing the amazing view from the balcony, and indeed all around the lounge area. The rooms were great in size and the kitchen was fantastic. We stayed for 9 nights with our 2 year old daughter and had a wonderful time. Used both the indoor and outdoor pools, and the games room was handy as well. The location couldn't have been better! Right across the road from the beach, and a short walk to Cavill Mall, but further enough away to avoid the 'party-goers' which is exactly what we were after. Thank you so much Trudy, Marie and Dave, we loved our stay at Seacrest and would definately recommend it to families looking for somewhere to stay on the Gold Coast!

Room Tip: Higher floors obviously have a better view, and less noise from other guests too

We have been staying at Seacrest for a few years now and we love it. The apartment is great and the view is absolutley magnificent. During our last stay in August we saw the whales playing from the balcony. The staff are wonderful.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny

The apartment was lovely, perfect location and friendly staffs as well as helpful. Will recommend family and friends about this lovely apartment. It was a great place to stay and relax. I have been to many countries around the world and this apartment was really great where all basic facilities were available like washer, dryer, oven, microwaves, stove, dishwasher and fridge. Iron and ironing board also provided. We stayed for 8 days and it was great, great and great...

Just across the road from the beach, Seacrest is a great place to stay. Everything you'll need is in your room, and just in case it isn't, you're not too far from the shops. It's towards the end of the strip, so it's quieter and good to get away and relax.

The staff were always helpful.....I'm not Australian and this was my first visit to the area. They told me everything I needed to know, and gave me a room higher up so it would be quieter. They couldn't do enough to help and make my stay easy.

After a very long flight, I needed a few days to relax and Seacrest turned out to the best place to come.

A friend and I stayed here for 7 nights and really loved the fact that it was a short walk to the town but not right in the middle of it so was lovely and peaceful. View was amazing and rooms were very tidy. Staff were also really lovely, will definitely stay again.
