“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

Look no further than this hotel. I chose moorings based on trip advisor reviews and i was not disappointed. It's got everything that you need from a hotel. The owners are some of the most friendly people I've ever met and are always willing to help you out. The rooms are spacious and clean, have foxtel, and have both fans and air conditioners that make you forget about the heat completely. We stayed in a two bedroom on the top floor and the room was just incredible, with a great view. The hotel is in the perfect location, with everything from supermarkets and restaurants, to clubs and shops all within walking distance. The beach is also just a few minutes walk away, otherwise the hotel does have a pool in which case you can just walk downstairs. The bus stop to the theme parks is also directly outside the hotel.

Why pay more for any other hotel when the moorings is luxury accomodation at an affordable price? Stay here and you won't be disappointed. We will definately be staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a river view are definately worth it.

I have one word to describe the Moorings on Cavill Ave and that is PERFECT. The owners Margaret and Peter made us feel like family, and always had a smile on their face. Us three girls were overwhelmed by how helpful and welcoming they were. When we saw our apartment we were speechless! Renovated 2 bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen and aircon that actually cooled down the apartment effortlessly! The views were beautiful, with a large balcony to enjoy the view. The pool is a resort in itself... we would spend the whole day there couldn't get enough of it. Everything was so clean and neat. Most of all Margaret and Peter thank you for all you did for us will never forget our stay at the Moorings. Will never stay at another place when on the Gold Coast. Oh, I forgot to mention the location.. RIGHT ON CAVILL AVE... Perrrrfecccttt!!

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments are so spacious but yet cosy.

Our stay was absolutely amazing! The owners, Margaret and Peter were the most friendly couple and made us feel at home as soon as we walked into the door! The 3 of us stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and the view or the river was amazing! Right in the centre of Surfers Paradise actually located on Cavill avenue, the main street! Very clean and cosy and there was a lot of room to move around. Margaret helped us out so much as we had trouble with our old apartment that we previously stayed at. She made an effort to take us in straight away at an unbelievable price. The pool area was beautiful and the balcony was just great. Definetly staying at the moorings again on my next trip to the Gold Coast!

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments facing the river!!!

The moorings on cavill is a perfect location for your first time in the gold coast, it is a very easy location to to learn and enjoy. Easy access to the beach, all types of shopping, quality reasturants, and cafe's and entertainment. The position of the mooring
apartments is extra special the balcony apartments give you a great river view it is peacefull in the mornings and provides some entertainment with rowing team canoes training. In the mornings on the balcony you will have special visitors two beautiful colored rosella birds very friendly they love raisinbread . All of this is made extra special with the managers, Margaret and peter, with a special service which makes you feel you have moved you own home and placed it on the river, I wish there was more like them , excellent service I wil be going again fully recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: River views

Our stay was incredible we had such a wonderful experience as a family and Marg and Peter were very accommodating to us by their advice and setting up places to see for us each day. The property is lovely and our little one loved the pool area. We definitely will come again and request others to try it out.
