“Fabulous - Moorings deserves its No. 1 rating in Surfers - exemplary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We are currently part way through our 4 night stay at Moorings and LOVING it. The 2 bedroom apartment is huge, the views are genuinely panoramic, the appointments are very clean, thoughtful and spacious. Everything is where it should he and well thought out. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the outdoor pool is heated, the location is perfect for adults and children and we simply could not ask for more. Great value, great time for the whole family.

I stayed at Moorings with my husband for five nights in September. The location is very good as it is right in the middle of Surfers Paradise. Restaurants and shops are just across the road. We requested an apartment on higher floors given the reviews but were given the third floor so it is a bit disappointing here. The request was also made months before our stay. The apartment is individually owned so you can be lucky and get a good one or vice versa. Ours is in a reasonable state but the lounge is terrible. The two armchairs are so small that I feel squashed in it and I am tiny (five two!). They are made of fake suede (?) and are not good for warm weather and saggy. The lounge is important to us because we stay at the apartment quite a bit and that's why we rent an apartment and not a hotel. It is also quite noisy but I kind of expected it as we are right in the middle of surfers paradise. I could sleep with my ear plugs in.
The host, Margaret, is very friendly but I understand she is moving on. All in all, taking into the account what we have paid, I think it is quite OK to stay at Moorings.

Very good location, clean & tidy apartment with excellent view, private carpark, good customer service at the front desk when booking for tours. Shopping, groceries, food & beautiful beach within 10 minutes walk. Fully equip kitchen and laundry area. Feel like I'm at home. Will definitely recommend Moorings on Cavill to my friends & relatives. And to Margaret, you're such a sweet lady.

Kudos to Margaret Fisher, resident manager of Moorings!
Our family arrived at Moorings at 730am, way in advance of our 2pm check-in time, but Margaret jumped out of bed to extend a special hospitality of granting us early check-in.
We booked our theme park tickets (Seaworld / Movie World / Wet N Wild) with the front desk (Erin and Gracie) and was pleasantly surprised that both ladies secured a great deal for us. Read: Cost savings.

Located in the heart of Surfers, it's just a 5 mins walk from Woolworths, 10 mins to the beach, 1 min to the berth where cruises are operated by Wynham cruise and Whales in Paradise.

Our 2-bedroom apartment on 13th Floor faces the river and the views are breathtaking! The apartment is clean, cosy and fully equipped and it's all we could ask.

thank you Margaret and Peter. Our first trip here in Gold Coast is amazing, thanks to you both. It's definitely a pity that you're leaving the place on 1 October 2013. Wishing you the best and have a great time in Bali!

Room Tip: If possible, request for rooms facing the river and on the upper floors because of the spectacular v...

Clean and tidy apartment with beautiful views, it was nice quite and a comfortable stay. The bathroom and kitchen are a bit outdated but clean and did the job they needed to do. The water pressure in the shower was certainly impressive.
It was a comfortable peaceful stay. When ever we passes a staff member we were floats spoken to which was a nice change from other places we have stayed at. The team at reception were very friendly. We would love to stay here again.

Great apartment, excellant location and magnificent views from our apartment. Apartment well equipped and had everything you could wish for. Central Caville Avenue, buses, beach and grocery shopping all within a 10 min walk. Staff were friendly and professional - Erin and of course Peter and the lovely Margaret who we have dealt with for several years. Sorry to see Margaret & Peter moving on and wish them all the best for the future and am sure people taking over will be as good to deal with and look forward to returning again in the future.

Room Tip: North facing room in winter - lots of sun and bright
