“Will be back for sure.”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

We have only just come back from our holiday and none of us wanted to come home. The Moorings was fantastic, and we will be back for sure. Let's start with the staff - awesome, they were very warm and welcoming, we were made to feel at home. Apartment - beautiful, we have 2 young kids who had plenty of room to spread out in the apartment, with no cane furniture in sight. The kitchen had everything we needed in it. Bedrooms were big, the kids enjoyed sharing their room which had plenty of room for them to play in there too. The views were amazing and very little noise came from the street below, the only noise we did hear was the party goers on the Friday and Saturday nights, this didn't last long and didn't bother us at all.
Overall it's a great place to stay and if you are thinking about staying here then I suggest you book, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Room 68, it looks over the river less noise than the other side of the building. As staff for their...

This is the third year in a row I have stayed at the Moorings on Cavill. Every year myself and a few friends have committed to ourselves to have holiday in the Gold Coast and we will never consider staying anywhere else. The help and service and friendly attitude shown by Margaret is exceptional!.

Highly recommended to all.

Regards Brendon.

We stayed three nights at the Moorings. Staff (only one) were generally pleasant. Free parking if you rent a car. There was a swimming pool, a heated outdoor jacuzzi and a sauna, which were all pretty cool to have around. There was even a games room with a table tennis table at the basement. The 3-bedroom apartment that we rented was excellent (I think it was the 10th floor but I can't remember) - had a washing machine, iron and ironing board, clean rooms (two double beds and two twin beds), big fridge, oven, microwave and dishwasher. Great views from the balcony. Great value if you have a party of 5-6 people.

Room Tip: Good place to stay if you have a large party (the 3-bedroom apartment was excellent, great value and...

We had planned a family holiday trip to the Gold Coast for a few years now. We actually tried to find some friends to help accomodate but it was hard to house 5 persons. However, having stayed at the Moorings on Cavill Avenue was really worth it. The excellent location and the great hosts made the stay there simply wonderful.

Our family had an awesome time in the Gold Coast and we hope to go back again, and will definitely stay at the Moorings on Cavill Avenue again. In fact, I just recommended it to a friend of mine who is planning to holiday in the Gold Coast this coming December.

Looking forward to go back for another holiday soon.

Room Tip: Contact Margaret, Peter or Erin and ask for advice, they are very good hosts!

We have holidayed annually at The Moorings since 1995 and have always enjoyed our stay, the location is so central with lovely river views. In the past 3 years, since Margaret and Peter have been the managers, the change has been amazing. They provide excellent, friendly service and the work they have instigated on the building and facilities has made The Moorings a superb holiday destination.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, but ask for a river view.

It is no secret why Moorings on Cavill gets top reviews in TA.
Managed by the irrepressible hosts Margaret,Erin and Peter, Moorings scores highly for its
A) Great location in surfers paradise with convenience stores,shopping malls,restaurants and bars as well as attractions like Infinity and Q1 at close walking distance.
B) Very spacious 2 bed room apartments with lovely views overlooking the river .
C) Impeccable service provided by Margaret,Erin and Peter.
D) Great price bargains if you book 3 nights and above.
All three of them are seasoned pros in hospitality- very patient in answering the ever curious guests with all information about gold coast, the food, shopping, attractions etc. Ask them about Anything under the sun in gold coast and they have a ready answer!
Margaret generates a buzz around the place with her infectious smile and energy. One of the best people in service industry that we have seen! She can run a management course for aspiring managers in the hospitality industry.
When we got know that it was my birthday the day we checked in, she came up with a nice little b'day card , pronto, within a few minutes! Very touching gesture indeed!
She also was able to get great bargains on the river cruises at a short notice. The charming Erin is the perfect foil and was very resourceful in planning the theme park trips and treating guests with a smile always.
The apartment is modern with all facilities including kitchenette and other amenities like dish washer,microwave, hot plates,washing machine etc.
We got a lovely room on high floor overlooking the river, they have a nice balcony space outside with tables, where one can relax and soak in the views of the river and beyond.
If you are driving into gold coast, they also have nice underground parking facilities in the property.
We probably think the property is a tad old especially the lifts requiring some overhaul. There may be newer modern properties in the vicinity, but i guess they come at a price as well!

On the whole, the experience was very positive - Moorings is great value for money place for families having an action-packed time in gold coast doing a lot of activities, little time to stay in the room. Perfect Gregarious hosts, nice and convenient location bang in the middle of surfers and large, spacious apartment with decent furnishings.

My daughter, my young grandson (6 yrs old) and I stayed at the Moorings for a week this September. We had a penthouse suite and found the accommodation and amenities excellent.The living areas were well furnished and comfortable, the kitchen was extremely well equipped and the bedrooms (each with a bathroom) ensured good night's sleep for all of us.
We did, of course, notice the traffic noise coming up from the street below, but in the bedrooms this was muted by the double glass doors on to the balconies - doubled as in one closely behind the other, forming a sound barrier.
We enjoyed the pool and hot spa and the whole "Moorings experience" was enhanced by the warm friendly welcome from Erin and Margaret, who were always ready to help us. Thank-you.

Room Tip: We chose the penthouse so there would be no-one walking overhead. We also had a very good view alon...
