“Brilliant”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Room was great. Roomy,& good appliances. Outlook over the river was sensational. Hospitality was very good. Central Position.Close to shops & also close to buses. Could travel to Theme parks by bus. Could go everywhere by bus, so no need for a car. Very close to the beach. Swimming pool & outside seating area really nice many times we went down to the pool there were only a handful of people. Wifi wasn't fantastic it was a bit hit & miss really but it done the job when was connect was easy to purchase & was good value for money for the time we were there.

This was my 4th stay at The Moorings.
I have never been disappointed with this place.
Its quiet, comfortable and immaculately clean.
The outdoor pool, spa and B.B Q areas are fantastic.The gardens and riverside location are a real bonus.
A big positive for this place is that it is not too close to the new light rail track and noise from the light rail is not an issue.
Each apartment is different but all that I have stayed in have been very comfortable and well appointed.
Although there is no bar or restaurant at The Moorings its only a short walk to everything you need and public bus stops are very close.
I agree with another reviewer that Erin at reception is a great asset to this business.
Book a riverside apartment for peace & quiet away from the road and to enjoy the views of the pool and river.

My gf and I spent our weekend at Moorings, as young engaged couple, we don't have much to spend besides saving for our wedding, which is why we choose Moorings, but it's way beyond our expectation.

The location is super convient, like steps away from beach, stores, restaurants......The view from our apartment is stunning, but the frontdesk girl Gracie is the most important asset to the place, every morning a simple 'Hello' and a shinning big smile just make us the day, not even mention her thoughful help throughout our stay.

We would definitely recommend Moorings to our friends and we are pretty sure they would also enjoy their stay here.

Fabulous location, rooms are excellent (make sure you get a west facing one for the best view) I would certainly book it again. Erin the receptionist is brilliant and a real asset to that business. It can be a little noisy from traffic and other city noises but if your right in the central part of a city you have to expect that
Location gets 10/10, cleanliness 9/10, comfort and facilities 9/10 view 10/10
It's really hard to fault without nit picking go there and enjoy

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool area. Don't loose your keys ($150.00 charge). very little suppl...

My family and friednds from overseas stayed at Moorings in May, we had 63 and 36, as we are big group, we picked budget rooms to save our cost. We've been told the room is not newly renovated on booking with Moorings staff, but when we arrived it's out of our expectation, the room was nice and clean, kitchen and laundry stuff all provided. I mean yes the tile and cabin looked old style, but won't affect us at all, it is definitely worthy for that price. Staff was really friendly helping us organise transfers and tours, we arrived around 9pm, the staff even switched on the light for us, how sweet!! Location was super convenient to everywhere, would recommend to others, and stay here again next time.
