“Super!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The location, the apartment and the staff were great! Stayed 7 nights, wanted to stay forever. Modest price. the best palce to start from at Gold Coast! Took 5 mins to walk to the Main Beach, 20mins to Surfers with all the shops, and dining on Tedder ave exceeded our expectations. thats not mentioning two pools, gym etc. I'd appreciate some complimentary cleaning though, but I think one gets it when staying longer.. ps stayed in 1-bed apartment in the 3rd floor, didn't see the sea out of the window, but the skyscrapers and trees were great anyway.

Hello Ivan. We really enjoyed reading that you 'stayed 7 nights, wanted to stay forever'. That is an excellent recommendation for future guests. We really appreciate your feedback and were pleased to read that you had a wonderful holiday after traveling such a long way from Russia. We are actually finding that we are getting many more guests from Russia, so thank you if you are helping to spread the good word about Australia and The Crest Apartments in particular. You mentioned complimentary cleaning - we do manage to keep our nightly tariffs down because we do not service our apartments daily. We do offer a complimentary service mid-stay for guests staying for 8 nights or longer. Should any guest wish to have additional cleaning or fresh linen this can easily be arranged. We hope to welcome you back to The Crest Apartments should your future travels include Australia again.

I came down from Brisbane for work and really enjoyed my stay ay The Crest apartments. Views are great, Main Beach is the only place to stay in GC and apartment 57 on the 12th floor was very clean and comfortable. Well appointed with all you need, service was excellent and very welcoming, bed comfortable, undercover parking, 2 pools and a sauna which is hard to find in Queensland. I will return for longer next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high for the view

Hello Richard. Thank you for complimenting our staff on the presentation of the apartment and for the high level of service you received from our front desk staff. We will be sure to pass details of your positive review along to them. All our housekeeping staff take great pride in their jobs and they work hard to ensure clean and comfortable environments for our guests. Our front desk staff are all locals and love nothing more than to assist guests with their plans for dinner or to suggest excellent shows or tours that may be of interest. We were also glad to hear that you took full advantage of our sauna. We have recently refurbished our gymnasium, our games room, indoor pool, spa and sauna - so we hope you have the time to utilise all of our indoor facilities on your next trip, whether that be for business or pleasure.

From a delightfully warm welcome, via well-appointed rooms, to a great pool and easy 24 hour access, The Crest Apartments is THE place to stay on the Gold Coast. I caught the train there as i didn't want the fuss of driving while on holiday, and there's a bus outside that goes to Surfers and one at the end of the street that goes to Southport - so easy access to all the shops when you want them, which means it's an economical stay for self-caterers.
The local beach is world class, has great surf and is not crowded as it's a 15 minute walk north of that busy tourist-trap.
There are great walks along the beach boardwalk - you can go 6.5km north up the Spit and see South Stradbroke Island across the water. The 5 minutes around the corner is Tedder Avenue with its bars and cafes and restaurants.
All in all this is a home away from home, that has everything on your doorstep but is really really quiet too.
As for the apartment, I stayed in a two-bedroom, with a fully stocked kitchen i was able to look aftermyself and my wife on the weekends she was able to get away from work, and during the week i was very happy to sit out on th espacious balcony and watch the world go by as I sipped my drink of choice. I have come home tanned and relaxed and I would have no hesitation about going back.

Room Tip: All the rooms look great although my preference is always for the sea-facing rooms as it's so re...

We loved your comment about The Crest Apartments being "THE place to stay on the Gold Coast". Our staff all feel that it's the place to be, so it is really lovely to read that our guests think so too! We do have an excellent location in terms of proximity to the beach, parks and Tedder Avenue, with the bonus of easily accessible public transport. Thank you for also commenting on the appointment of our apartments and therefore the opportunity for guests to self-cater and save money. We hope to see you and your wife back very soon. It's possibly time to unwind, relax and top up that tan again!

Throughout the booking process and my stay all staff I dealt with were kind, helpful and very professional and you really felt that nothing was too much trouble. Our room on the fourth floor was spotlessly clean and very modern with quality fixtures and fittings. We had an undercover carpark although we didn't need to drive much as Tedder Avenue is just around the corner, and the Southport Surf Club only ten minutes walk away. Australia Fair is only five minutes drive away.The Crest feels like a home from home, and many of the residents live there so it is quiet and very peaceful. I will be staying for a week next time! The reception will also do all your bookings for you as well.

Room Tip: Our room Number 19 was lovely with views over pools and tennis courts.

Thank you Leslie for such a positive review. Apartment 19, like the vast majority of our apartments, has been recently refurbished. With a new bed and linen package, leather lounge suite and gorgeous art work Apartment 19 is not only comfortable but looks a treat. We will be sure to pass your compliments along to our reception staff also. They work really hard to make guest stays enjoyable. Thank you for choosing to stay with The Crest and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

We just came back from a fantastic stay at the Crest apartments, Main Beach.Our apartment was nice and quiet and perfectly set out. We were surrounded by birds and beautiful scenery, including a gorgeous ocean view! The outdoor and indoor pools were really nice places to relax, and the whole atmosphere was just lovely! It was great to be so close to Tedder avenue, and such easy access to Surfers and the theme parks.The staff were so kind and helpful,making our stay here the best gold coast stay yet!

Hello Amy and John. We're pleased to read that you had 'the best Gold Coast stay yet', what a lovely thing to have guests say about a recent stay with us. You mentioned the lovely atmosphere - we believe that Main Beach is a jewel in the Surfer's Paradise crown. We are located North of Surfer's Paradise in a quiet and affluent suburb that boasts a beautiful section of the beach strip, wonderful shopping and award winning restaurants. It really is the perfect beach holiday destination. We look forward to welcoming you back on your future travels.

Stayed here in October 2013 - great place to stay, quiet and away from busy Surfers Paradise but still close enough to visit all the attractiobns. Staff, especially Racheal were extremely professional and offered exceptional customer service from assisting with car rentals, arranging hotel transfers from airport and booking theme park tickets. Accommodation was beautiful, we stayed in the penthouse apartments - absolutely beautiful and well maintained - well worth paying a bit more for. Will be our choice of accommodation on the Gold Coast for future visits.

Room Tip: pay a little more for the 3 bedroom penthouse apartment - well worth the views and the roof balcony...

We look forward to welcoming you back again for your next holiday.

I stayed here with my partner and his family for 5 nights.

Our apartment was clean, fresh, modern & tastefully decorated. We were very impressed and happy with it.

All the facilities were very well maintained and clean. Even the BBQ area was spotless. Loved both the indoor and outdoor pools and spas.

To me it was in a great location. Away from the hustle and bustle of Surfers, but close enough if you wanted to go there and check it out.

It's literally only a 5 minute walk to Tedder Avenue, where you have an array of restaurants, cafés, and bars to choose from. They can be a little on the pricey side however.

The staff at 'Crest' were wonderful & couldn't be more accommodating, friendly and helpful if they tried. There are even small trolleys that you can use (free of charge) to transport your luggage or shopping from your vehicle in the underground carpark to your apartment. They certainly came in handy for us.

Big "Thank You" to the management and staff at The Crest. We will recommend you and come back and stay next time we come up to the Gold Coast.
