“great views”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We booked the 3 bedroom penthouse apartment for one night. The apartment had 1 ensuite bathroom a separate bathroom and another separate toilet with wash hand basin - this was good for 3 couples all having their own toilet.
The apartment has a large outdoor area with its own BBQ on the rooftop, with good views over the broadwater/mountains on one side and to the ocean on the other.
There are 2 other balconies but very little furniture.
We really enjoyed our stay and would be nice to stay longer and see more of the area. However the furnishings especially in the lounge and outdoor furniture is getting pretty worn and dated - it really needs a bit of an upgrade. Very clean though, and comfortable beds.
Like most apartments/hotels there are never enough coat hangers in the wardrobes, and only 1 spare blanket between 3 rooms - these simple things make a difference.
For the price $400 for 1 night 3 bed - very good value.
This place could be amazing - just needs a bit more upgrading. We would go back.

Thank you for your response. We agree that the 3 bedroom penthouse apartments are a great size and layout for couples and families. The large rooftop outdoor area offers extensive views and the BBQ area offers the opportunity to entertain privately. Since your stay, this penthouse has undergone refurbishment in the lounge, dining, kitchen and bedrooms. We look forward to welcoming you back for a future visit, confident in the knowledge that your stay would be further enhanced since upgrading the furnishings.

We have stayed at The Crest twice and this time was even better than the last. We asked for a high apartment the view was well worth it. I wish that we stayed for longer than a week to make use of everything that they have to offer. The children loved coming back from being out all day and using the swimming pool and the spa. I will stay at the crest again.

This was our second stay at Crest, and won't be our last. The location is just great - short walk to Tedder Ave and all the coffee shops, and just a short drive to Wet N Wild and Movie World. Surfers is a nightmare at present, with all the roadworks, and we were so glad to be well away from all that. The indoor pool is a great feature for the kids. Good quality apartment at a great price, friendly management, what more could you ask for. See you again guys :)

You are correct, we definitely have one of the best locations along the Surfer's Paradise stretch of beach. We also believe that we are family friendly with our proximity to the theme parks. The Sea World public bus stops just metres from the front of our building. Our staff were so pleased to read in your review that you are coming back to stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Another enjoyable visit to a well maintained and fitted out apartment. The apartment was excellently located to both the beach and Tedder Avenue which has had a refurb of large proportions. A variety of restaurants to satisfy a whole Host of taste buds.
The management at the Crest once again provided excellent service ensuring that all our needs were met. I would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments to fellow travellers

We booked fairly last minute for the Easter weekend, but the price was still quite reasonable. We requested a higher floor w ocean views and even with our last minute booking we still got a view which encompassed ocean, city and hinterland. Room was great,very clean, comfortable and modern, couldn't fault it. Staff were very friendly and accommodating with our late check in and check out, the whole process was extremely easy. Location is great, easy access to restaurants etc on Tedder Street and five minutes from the beach. Very happy with our choice.

My husband and I stayed at Crest Apartments with our young toddler. The apartment was extremely affordable (even during the Easter holiday period) and the apartment complex was packed full of amenities including an indoor and outdoor pool, gym, tennis court and games room. I was greated with a friendly smile by the staff and our room was ready for our arrival (which was before the scheduled 12pm time). Once we saw our 2 bedroom apartment we were extremely happy with the quality of the unit and appliances. Crest Apartments is located within a quiet Main Beach street and has a Lifesaver patrolled beach at the end of the street. Would definitely stay at Crest Apartments again! Two thumbs up (3 if I had them)!

Thank you for your positive review - our staff enjoyed reading it. We are pleased to read that you had such an enjoyable stay. You were a little luckier than you thought with your early check-in, it's actually 2pm! However, our staff are very aware that many people do like to start their holidays before 2pm and at The Crest we like to offer an earlier check-in service when we are able. We look forward to welcoming you back.

After a last minute decision to spend a night at surfers over the Easter break, trawling through internet booking sites looking for a two bedroom apartment for two adults and two teenagers was proving to be a chore. Until I found the crest apartments, reasonabley priced, decent location, 2 pools and a games room, and a couple hundred meters from a patrolled beach.
I had requested an early check in and although our room wasn't ready on our arrival, we were welcomed in by friendly smiles and invited to use the resort facilities in the mean time. Half an hour later our room was ready. What an amazing view! Our rooms had everything we needed. The only thing lacking was an inhouse restaurant, the girls would have enjoyed the novelty of ordering their own room service!
The crest apartments were perfect for our requirements and we would defiantly stay there again.

It's great to read that your stay meet your expectations and that you were happy with the choice you made in selecting The Crest from the many available options on the internet. We have taken on board your comments regarding in-room dining. We have engaged a delivery service company that gives quick and easy access to the menus of over ten nearby restaurants, providing in-room dining after 5pm. We also have many of Queensland's most awarded restaurants and cafe's on our doorstep in Tedder Avenue, with a short one minute stroll having you seated at one of their tables. You will have to sample some of their menus when you next visit us. Thank you for your feedback.
