Moorings on Cavill Avenue
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2008

The moorings is hard to review because each room is owned by different people so they aren't all the same. So my review is just for the room where we stayed. Firstly, our room did not look like the photos on the website. We stayed on the second floor in a one bedroom apartment and had lovely views overlooking the river. The kitchen was nice but the rest of the room was a bit out-dated. The place was fairly spacious with lots of storage cupboards in the bedroom. I did find the traffic and pedestrian noise disrupted my sleep. The pool and bbq area was lovely and the position was great - close to shops and beach.

Stayed: April 2008

We stayed at the Moorings in April 2005 and overall we had a great holiday.

We arrived late on a Sunday night but had no problem getting our apartment key from the safety deposit box and parking the car in the underground carpark.

We were pleased with our 2 bedroom apartment which was comfortable and clean and had lovely views of the river.

The location was great at the end of Cavill Mall and it took a short stroll each day to get to the action. Bus stops are very close by and now with the IGA across the road at the new Circle on Cavill complex you wouldn't have to go far at all for supplies.

The Moorings was quiet with a lot of people living there (retiress) on a peranent basis. We did feel a little unwanted in the pool area with our two children but nothing was said to our faces!!

During our week stay we did not have any interaction with the staff and when we left on a Sunday morning the reception was again unstaffed so we simply left our keys in the safety deposit box.

A smooth problem free trip with nice facilities but would not return as not child friendly enough for us.

After reading 'crushed hopes on cavill' i was left wondering whether we should cancel our booking and find alternative accommodation. Thankfully i decided to stick with it. The 2bedroom apartment we stayed in on the 12th floor had fantastic views over the river and hinterland. It was very spacious, clean and tidy. Bedrooms are of a good size, especially the master bedroom which contains an ensuite. The wrap around balcony also allowed for all day sun. Pools and grounds are well maintained and tidy. We found the location exellent. Just a short stroll up Cavill Av to the main shopping areas. Also there is no need to book a special tour bus to take you to Movie World, Dreamworld or Wet n wild as there is a bustop just meters up the road (Ferny Av). Here Surfside buses will pick you up for a very reasonable fare. Drop off is on the otherside of the road on return. We found the hosts very pleasant to deal with.. I would definitely stay at The Moorings for any further surfers paradise holidays. I guess you need to bear in mind though, that as each apartment is privately owned, furnishings and decor varies. My advice..definitely ask for river/hinterland views on booking. The only negative word i have to say about The Moorings is our room didn't have a cheese grater. But for $105per nite (Aus $) who's complaining! Well worth the money.

I was appalled by the level (or lack there of) of service at this apartment.
The website leaves so much promise, showing lovely apartments, amazing views and close to everything.
Location was perfect, were okay views but the apartments were awful.
Everything was so dirty and dusty, it was near impossible to stay there long periods of time during the day. There was broken glass from the walls of mirrors in the living area.
Nothing seemed to work properly, electical faults as well as having people come in and out of the apartment, allowing no room for genuine privacy.
I was appalled by the lack of assistance and rudeness of the hosts and the way they treated tourists from out of town who were wanting to experience all of Surfers Paradise.
My word of advice, the internet photos and descriptions may seem appealing but for the lack of service, dirty and near unlivable apartments that were provided on arrival, it's definatly not worth a pretty penny.
