Check in was brisk. Good security features. Spacious and comfortable apartment, with easy to operate electrical appliances. Need to bring own soap and shampoo. Walking distance to beach, shopping mall, and eateries. Enjoyed the view and breeze from the balcony. No free WiFi. Internet services available at cavill mall. There's free WiFi outside COLES at Cavill Mall Surfers Paradise.

Great apartment with 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, needs a little makeover but the facilities were great as were the staff, any issues fixed in quick time. Super close to Cavill mall but far enough away to enjoy quiet nights and beautiful views of the river north and south. Will definitely be staying here again and asking for the same room....

Ours was a well appointed spacious two bedroom apartment on the tenth floor with fantastic views up and down river and towards the ocean. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and places of interest, with secure basement parking included. Rooms were all clean and staff were both helpful and friendly. Definitely a place to recommend.
