Margaret, Erin and Peter were really friendly, helpful and accomodating. As apartment managers you will not be able to find anyone better to deal with! Fantastic location with a Woolies opposite and food all within 5mins walking distance. Look forward to coming back again!

Room Tip: Book early!

My husband, 14 month old son and myself stayed at the Moorings on Cavill for 8 nights from 3rd - 11th Oct 2012. We had a one bedroom apartment on the 13th floor overlooking the river. The apartment was really nice. It was spacious, modern, clean and had everything you would need for a self catering holiday. The views out to the river were amazing. We opted to bring our own travel cot as we wanted our son to have his own bed which he is used to but I think you can rent one. The apartment had air conditioning, sky TV and every appliance you would need in the kitchen. We cooked alot of meals in the kitchen. One downside to the apartment is that it is only serviced once a week, so be prepared to have to shop for toilet rolls, washing up liquid, laundry powder (if you want to use the washing machine to wash your towels etc) . There is a woolworths supermarket across the road which we visited nearly every day for essentials and it is brilliant. The apartment is in an awesome location, just 5 minute walk to the beach and a 1 minute walk to the local park, which we took our son too every morning. It is noisey at night time, but after reading reviews that mentioned this we brought our ear plugs and eye masks and the noise and lights were not a problem.

The swimming pool area is a highlight of the apartments. It is really looked after and looks lovely. We spent most of the time in the baby pool which our son loved! The owners are really friendly and take an interest in you and your holiday. Moorings on Cavill is excellent value for money, in a superb location and excellent if you have kids.

We stayed here from Friday 5th - 10th October in Apt 58 on the 11th floor. The apartment itself was lovely and well appointed with great views over the river. The pool, sauna and bbq were fantastic and grounds well kept. We only had one unfortunate incident during our stay and that was getting stuck in the elevator after a long hot day for over an hour.

Kevin Gorton who picked us up from the airport was great and his service exemplary and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone who didn't know their way around and were not hiring their own car.

Everything was very handy..... supermarkets, shopping and buses to theme parks. Make sure you get a Go Card as this saves you money in the long run and any leftover funds can be redeemed at the airport on your departure. In hindsight if we were to stay here again I would not stay over a weekend we found it just way too noisy being right in the middle of Surfers.

All in all a great stay and would be happy to recommend the Moorings to others.

We recently stayed at the Moorings and couldnt have asked for a better holiday. Firstly Margaret, Peter and Erin were so lovely and helpful. The apartment we stayed in (no. 9) was perfect. Very spacious and had everything we needed. The location was also perfect - a little noisy but we were right in the heart so was to be expected. The pool and spa was enjoyed by all. We loved it so much we even looked into purchasing an apartment in the building!! Will definintely and go back and is highly recommended.

Visiting The Moorings after twenty something years, and a past owner of an apartment I was so pleased to see how lovely the building looked and how fantastic our apartment was.The gardens were immaculate, the apartment was modern and clean and our hosts, Marg, Peter & Erin were welcoming and genuine. It was like coming home after many years away, and we had the most fabulous time. We will be back next year, and are considering a property investment! I would never stay anywhere else. Thank you! We loved it!

Room Tip: Rooms on the river or park side are quieter when travelling with children

This was our fourth trip to the Gold Coast but our first stay at Moorings on Cavill. The staff were so friendly and helpful and our apartment was lovely. We had a fantastic view of the river and the pool, spa and sauna were great. Moorings on Cavill was excellent value for money and is so close to the city and public transport. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to my family and friends.
