This will be the third time i have stayed at the Moorings and i love it. Margaret is a pleasure to deal with when booking and really makes you feel at home once you have arrived. All the rooms i have stayed in have been clean and in great condition, the beds are comfortable and i love all the decor! It is in a perfect location, although there is some noise from cars we found it private and peaceful. I would not stay anywhere else and would highly suggest to others :-)

What a truly wonderful place to stay.

Situated at the base of Cavill Avenue, right next to Tiki Village meant a very short stroll to the centre of Cavill Mall where it all happens. The local bus stop is but a few metres away which made it very handy to explore Surfers in all directions.

Our apartment was a corner unit at the rear of the apartment block. It was a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit on Level 3 with views over the gorgeous swimming pool/bbq area and out over the Nerang river. A wrap around balcony with two seating areas provided gorgeous views.

The apartment was beautifully tiled throughout with modern furnishings, flat screen TV, air conditioning, great workable kitchen with full fridge/freezer and microwave and the beds were super comfy! The unit had it's own laundry room with washing machine and dryer and both bathrooms (1 with bath, shower and toilet and 1 with shower and toilet only) were perfect.

Thankyou so much Margaret for a wonderful stay and we will be sure to recommend the Moorings to anyone looking to stay in Surfers. Guaranteed, if we're ever back, we will definitely stay with you again. Thanks again, you're a gem! Lyn and Kathy xx

Having read the previous reviews on trip advisor we were looking forward to our stay. We were aware of its location and thus the possibility of noise from the road (which there is but what else to expect in this location??) and also looking forward to meeting the owners, who lived up to the reviews, lovely people.

We did get a 'good deal' on the face of things however I have to say anyone who is offered apartment no.40 ask for another apartment. It is very 70's, the carpet is dirty and it is in need of modernisation. If you want a laugh go in and check out the oven(s), must have been installed when the apartment was built - even the maintenance guy that came up to look at it for me when it didnt work properly was laughing at it.

We were made aware at the time of booking that this was a 'non modernised' apartment, but I really did not expect dirty carpets, poor tiles and an archaic oven.

All being said and done we enjoyed our stay, and to repeat the owners are lovely.

Having read the various reviews on TA I confidently booked into the Moorings with my daughters for the weekend so we could catch up with my elderly Mother who was visiting the Gold Coast from NZ. Having visited my Mother at the Azzura which is very modern and chic we booked in at the Moorings.
Our two bedroom unit (no 40) unfortunately was a particularly sad throw back to the 70's. Brown carpet, brown tiles and hideous blue /green curtains. Now to be fair it was clean buts that's about as much praise as I can lavish. Fronting on to Surfers Paradise Road it was particularly noisey both with traffic and people partying. The cream paint work on the doors etc had taken on that aged taint though this matched well with the budget basic pine dining table setting. Yes we only paid $145 per night and luckily we didn't have to spend much time in the unit as to be truthful we really didn't want to. I wish now that I'd spent the extra $50 per night and booked into the Azzura which was far quieter, far newer and very tastefully appointed. We never got to see the famous managers as the day we checked in was a public holiday. I'm sure they were lovely and possibly some of the other units have been refurbished. Unfortunately ours hadn't and if your unit is on the road side as opposed to the riverside then get ready for plenty of traffic noise. Even my 9 & 12 yr olds were dissapointed that we weren't staying somewhere a bit more upmarket and kids aren't supposed to notice these things !!

Booked here last minute as original accom was horrific... managed to score the last room and they informed me it was one of their budget rooms. We were thrilled upon entering the room. For approx $110 per night we had a fully self contained apartment - full kitchen, dining table, lounge room with tv/dvd player and jus off that is a balcony with superb river views, seperate bathroom, seperate laundry, and seperate bedroom.
The staff were absolutely fabulous and were very accomodating to our needs - helped us book theme park tickets, airport transfers and even gave us advice on the best restaurants in the area!! We were also able to store our luggage all day after checking out (as we had a late flight).
Moorings have a beautiful outdoor area with a large rectangular pool, sauna, toddler wading pool, spa and also barbecue facilities.
The worst part (and it didn't really phase me much) would have been the noise, being on the 6th floor we did get a fair bit off street noise- but it didnt bother me all that much to be honest - if it bothers you... request accom on a higher level :)
I will definately be coming back to stay there next time I visit the Gold Coast and will be recommending them to everyone :)
