A nice clean hotel with a great view in the middle of a quiet residential area, but a two minute walk and your in the heart of the city. The staff here are also great, the manager himself can't do enough to help you with info, activity/service bookings etc. highly recommend

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.

Lovely apartments, clean rooms and well stocked, as well as a very good location and good facilities, however the wifi is incredibly expensive and should be free like the rest of the world. Even third world countries like Thailand have free wifi wherever you go.

These apartments are ideally situated in Surfers Paradise right by the Nerang River and a 5 minute walk into the Surfers shops and the beach.Great views of the river from the deck which get sunshine all day. Our apartment was spotless and very well appointed.

Thanks for your lovely feedback. The river views are spectacular, we agree, especially at this time of year with the sunrise and sunsets. Bumbles is one of our favourites too for a great coffee :) We look forward to having you back later on in the year. Cheers!

Its clean, the views were great. The hospitality was fantastic, for the getaway for a family you couldn't ask for better. My kids loved the pool and the spa. Me and my wife enjoyed sitting on the balcony sipping wine and just watching the boats go by. Pete and Maree could not do enough for us, thankyou so much.
