“Top Marks All Round”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

We choose The Moorings because of all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. Gracie & Erin were so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We upgraded to a 2 bed apartment because we wanted a river view and we feel it was worth it. The apartment was well furnished, very comfortable and the view was stunning. The Moorings is ideally placed for easy access to all amenities, but this does mean that normal city noise is always in the background. We would certainly go back if we visit the Gold Coast again.
Tip: if you want to hire a car ask Gracie or Erin. They use Paradise Blue Rent a Car and the service is excellent. They deliver and collect the car from The Moorings, are so friendly to deal with and offer great rates.

Stayed August 2014, traveled as a couple

Upon arrival, the receptionist was very friendly and positive. The hotel was clean and close to shops/ activities, situated on the river not beach.

Our apartment was spacious and recently refurbished, with a fully equipped kitchen. Our room unfortunately faced the city street which was noisy at nights, but nothing too major.

The only downfall of the Moorings is that the double bed was two single beds pushed together, which got a little uncomfortable. Other than that, service is spot on and rooms are nice!

Accommodation that is well located with all the facilities you need on site and close by with a fantastic waterfront view. Outside of hotel and foyer would benefit from a bit of updating. Hotel is near a key shuttle drop off/pick up point and close to public transport

Room Tip: Try and get a waterfront view

We stayed for 3 nights in a 2BR apartment. The room is spacious with river view & well equipped kitchen .The only drawback was that the laundry & kitchen washing powder was stocked for only 1 day & for subsequent days you have to manage on your own cost. All shopping centres, activities within walking distance. Staff was friendly and helpful. All water activities depart from just behind the hotel. Overall good value for money & would recommend friends.

I had searched for accommodation with a river view on line and read the previous reviews for the Moorings..We have been to the Gold Coast many times before..I will not waste time again in the future seeking the best accommodation and great value again,,The Moorings is simply the best..
The views of the river and the activities to be seen and enjoyed by just sitting on the balcony was excellent for we 4 senior citizens,,Family that visited us there who actually live close by were blown awayby the view and will plan to use an apartment there for weekends away,,Paradise...

Room Tip: corner unit suited us ,mainly we wanted a view,,

We stayed six nights with our two young children and found it to be an excellent location for a week in surfers paradise. Staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is sparkling clean , the apartment was well stocked for a self catering holiday with children. Some parts of the apartment were slightly dated but for the value we were totally fine with this.
