Moorings on Cavill Avenue

Reviewed November 16, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a 16 day trip up the east coast. Wonderful location in surfers paradise with everything 30 seconds away. Beautiful panoramic views from our room out onto the waterfront. The apartment has everything you should need and a lovely balcony with fantastic views. Made very welcome on arrival by Erin and offered us advice on local attractions, Only downfall was that we would of liked to have stayed longer. Would love to return and definitely recommend it.

Chanced upon Moorings at the recommendation of Tripadvisor. We were glad tat the room was ready for us when we arrived in the morning and greeted by cheerful & smiley Margaret. Location is superb & accessible to all places of interest via public bus at the doorstep. Though we could have wished for a higher floor that is away from the traffic noise. Erin was friendly and very helpful. The 2 bedroom apt served our needs well & our 2 kids simply loved it in our entire 6 nights stay. Will come back again.

Room Tip: Request for high floor and away from main road.

We chose Moorings based on the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor and the lovely correspondence from Margaret and Erin. We booked 4 months in advance for 10 nights early November. On arrival we were almost shocked at the views from our 2 bedroom apartment, they were amazing of the river and Chevron Island. The apartment was spacious, clean, fully equipped and everything worked well, there is a Woolworths across the road and its a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants. Parrots landed on the balcony each morning and we even watched two dolphins swim by up the river one morning. The lovely BBQ area was spotless, we used it twice and made full use of the pool and spa area, which the kids aged 6 & 8 loved. If we were unsure of anything we just asked Margaret or Erin (especially for pizza advice). We parked our hire car in the safe underground car park. Most days we went to the theme parks early and returned back to Moorings at 2pm for a swim and a relax. The apartment was serviced half way through our stay. When we return to the Gold Coast we will definitely book Moorings again.

Room Tip: Our river views were amazing from the 13th floor, the balcony did make us a bit nervous with the kid...

We stayed at Moorings for 3 nights in mid-October. This was our favourite accommodation during our 3 week trip to Australia. Margaret & Erin were very welcoming and helpful. Even though check-in was not officially until 2pm, we arrived late morning having flown from London via Singapore and our room was already available for us.

The beautifully presented 4th floor 2 bed apartment had great views over the Nerang river. The apartment was clean, comfortable and quiet, while the outdoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna room were warm and inviting.

The entry hall is full of brochures for local attractions. We bought MovieWorld theme park tickets at the desk which meant we didn’t have to queue at the theme park and we also obtained the couple of dollars discount per ticket that seems to be available elsewhere. Erin also recommended local restaurants.

If we ever come back to Surfers, we will try to stay here again.

We stayed in a beautiful, clean, modern 2 bedroom apartment at the Moorings in November. It is situated in a perfect location, so close to Cavill Ave, shops, restaurants and the beach. Margaret and Erin are friendly and always willing to help or recommend highlights/activities and generally assist. Highly recommended and wouldn't stay any where else in Surfers Paradise.

We stayed at the Moorings during the September school holidays and were lucky enough to book the last room available. I have not come across a more highly recommended apartment on Trip Advisor and now I have experienced the Moorings myself I can now see what everyone is raving about! The apartment was perfect for our family. Very spacious and ours overlooked the river. From the moment we met Marg I knew she would take good care of us. A real sense of family is what I felt the whole time we were there. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We got ripped off when we first got to Brisbane with hiring a car but Marg recommended Paradise Blue Car Rentals and they had the same approach to business as the Moorings. Great customer service with a smile. Thank you once again Marg, Peter and Erin. We are hoping to return!
