“Great Holiday”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

we had our first family holiday and with the help the guys from Moorings on Cavill - it was fantastic.
we stayed in the "cheap & cheerful" room - it was fantastic, very clean, spacious and exactly what my family needed within our budget - we are saving so we can come back again !
the location is perfect with everything directly across the road and any questions i had were happily answered from the lovely the ladies at the reception, they were so helpful.
Would highly recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: The "cheap & cheerful" room is great value for money- do not overlook if you are on a...

We stayed at Moorings on Cavill for the weekend with our 16 month old daughter. We stayed in apartment 26 which was a one bedroom apartment that overlooked Cavill Ave. it was perfect for us as there was plenty of room for our little girl to run around and it also gave us the added benefit of having the kitchen so we could prepare some of her meals in the hotel before heading out to the beach. The apartment had everything you could want and was very comfortable and fairly modern. Would definitely stay here again. I have to say that I've never met a friendlier person at a hotel reception. Margaret was just wonderful and immediately made us feel welcome.

We stayed on the 13th floor which was lucky for us. Had a beautiful view of the river and hinterland. Located very close to all the shops but far enough away so that the noise wasn't disturbing. The room (2 bedroom apartment) was lovely with plenty of space and views from every room. The reception ladies were lovely and very helpful with answers to any questions. I would recommend this place to my friends.

Had another fabulous stay at the Moorings. All apartments have been great , but this one on the 13 th floor was wonderful, amazing views over the river, and mountain sunsets. A quiet location, yet across the road ,2 mins. you are in the heart of Surfers, Cavill Ave, with all the bustle of the shops , retaurants and entertainment, and of course the beach. Margaret, Peter, Erin and all the staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The pool is in beautiful gardens , but you can also lie watching the boats on the river. The apts. are all fully equiped for cooking and doing laundry, as we have usually been there for long stays. Just love it there, thats why we keep coming back.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the river are best.

We spent 5 days at the Moorings on Cavill.Excellent location close to everything.Parked our car when we arrived and did not use it until we left to return home.Our apartment was on the 13th floor,wonderful views over the river and looking down to the pool area.Enjoyed sitting in the sunshine on the balcony.The weather was very kind to us,not one drop of rain.
Very friendly manager and staff.Made our stay at the Moorings an enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: If possible choose back of building facing the river.

Offered with better rate by early booking (early bird). Arrived to apartment very late at night but they had everything well organized. Got the keys immediately and straight to our apartments. Both apartment we rented are fully equipped with what we needed during our stay. And more important that all the appliances are working.

During our stay, we realized that we've chose the right location. Bus stops are just less than 3 minutes walking distance. Restaurants are everywhere...Woolworth (grocer) just 5 minutes walking distance. We went there like everyday.. we had no problem staying here while we were travelling with 3 little kids..

What can I say about Margeret and Erin, both of these lovely ladies have made our vacation much easier. They are very much helpful in every way. All you need to do is just to ask them.

We'll definitely return there when we got a chance. I love the view of the river in the morning..

Would I recommend this place for others?? Yes without any hesitation.

The Moorings on Cavill is in a brilliant location. With public transport right out the front, shops within walking distance and wonderfully friendly staff, our stay at the Moorings was great. Our room was perfect and had a brilliant view along the river and Mt Tamborine.
