Moorings on Cavill Avenue
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2013

The Moorings on Cavill has the most superb location and provides you with everything you could want for a stay longer than a day. A fully equipped kitchen; reception staff with great advice and able to book excursions for you. A swimming pool and games room for the kids. Parking as well those this was a bit confused to start with someone else using our allocated park. Managers went out of their way to sort this for us.

We had an awesome stay!

Room Tip: higher up rooms are better

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment in August 2013. Staff very pleasant and eager to please. Outside facilities very good - (heated) pool, spa, sauna. Apartment (26) was furnished well and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped, laundry OK, bathroom a bit tired but OK.

If there is a criticism it would be to the level of traffic noise, which I understand is only for city facing rooms and I guess gets worse the lower the floor. Hint is to request a river side apt when you book and if you book through an agent, call Moorings.

The location of Moorings is excellent, a short walk to most places in Surfers'. Quiet too, barring road noise.

Stayed in this complex in 2012 and returned again this year to the same unit as last year. This two bedroom, two bathroom unit is very spacious with a large lounge dining area and a very large wrap around balcony which ensures sun ALL day. The unit looks over the Nerang river with NO high rises blocking the western sun. The kitchen is very well stocked with sufficient utensils for more than 4 people. All utilities are provided.
The Pool, Spa, Sauna, BBQ area are spacious and very well maintained. There is ample area for Guests sun bathe.
Margaret, Peter and Erin are all very friendly and helpful.
There were a number of small items that detracted from perfection including two lights not operating, phone out of action, Washing Machine leaking and no ceiling light in the second bedroom. These matters were referred to management and apart from the ceiling light all rectified.
The complex is ideally located at the bottom of Cavil Ave and adjacent to both major bus stops going both North and South.
I have visited Surfers on Numerous occasions over the past 30 years and have finally found the perfect location. Totally recommend.

We stayed for 4-nights based on very high recommendation on the TA.
We were being greeted warmly by Margaret. The unit was ready despite we came early around 1030 am.
However we found some strain of hairs and stains in the bed sheet and pillow also foul odor in the kitchen area. When we reported this to Margaret, she was very apologetic and ensure me that she would rectify the issue immediately with her housekeeping. She was even giving me a half price discount voucher for lunch cruise, which we regretfully unable to utilize until our last day there because of our very full schedule
When we returned in the evening, we found out the room has been re-cleaned up and new bed sheets has been made up. Rollaway bed has been set up as well. In the next morning, I found out that she was nice enough to provide us with a brand new blanket.

Overall, the unit we stayed is quite standard. The bathroom wasn't too clean, some stains and rust in some spots but not so much of problem for us. Only the laundry dryer machine was a bit an issue for us, It stopped every 30 mins and must be reset by cleaning the lint. This was quite annoying. I never had a dryer machine needs lint cleaning every half an hour under normal use. When I addressed the issue to Margaret and Erin, they were explaining that the repair man not available on weekend, so nothing we could do than just to bear with it.

Obviously it wasn't the management mistake and I completely understand that some unit may be better than other. When we booked, this was the last unit available so we had no better choice. Maybe we just not lucky enough to had one with some issues.

However, I would recommend Moorings on Cavill. Margaret and Erin are excellent!! If possible, when reserve, please ask for a nicer unit than Unit 36. Location-wise, it can't go wrong! right on Cavill Ave and 5 mins walk to the central of Surfers. Bus stop to northbound and southbound of GC is only 2 mins walk.

My suggestion, maybe providing some extra pillows will be very nice, ours are too soft and not enough cushion for us to have a very good night sleep.
Probably some free internet would be nice as well. The internet connection is quite expensive but probably most people go to GC for holiday and they wouldn't mind the internet too much.

Room Tip: Ask for river view room, It is worth it!

Stayed here a few months ago adter reading all the reviews and that this place had won top choice awards.
I honestly expected something amazing with the pictures and my friends and I had high expectations but a little let down. I'm not one to complain about trivial things but my friends were constantly in my ear about the place. We stayed for a week and after the first night, they wanted to leave.
The place was a bit run down and had oldish furniture. The couch leather had completely peeled (would explain why a rug was placed over it to sit on). The TV and austar box kept stuffing up and was pretty tiny for the room size.
There were ants everywhere on the first night (we hadn't eaten and food or drink in the apartment as we went out for dinner) and the next morning, even more! I dont mind a few but it started to get a bit much, my friends were whining the entire time as more appeared.
The view was lovely over the river and up north. We were only on a low level so not a sky-high view. Bit of a downside with party cruise dock right outside the window and they were pretty noisy (close balcony door and was all good).
The staff were great, a little over friendly for my liking (asking us where we were going each time we went out and came back) but I do understand some people like that attention.
The pool was lovely and warm, the spa also.
The second bedroom was meant to have a queen/zip bed but two singles were in there. And no light ??? Just a lamp on one side of the room. So couldnt really see at night which was odd.
Attempted to use the vacuum to clean up the dead ants next day but appears people before us used the washing machine and the entire laundry floor was soaked, including the bottom of the vacuum cleaner so it left a great big mess of fluff along the floor and streaks.

Overall I'd say a great place for families but definitely not business/professional couples or adults looking for something to match the high rating.
