“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

A wonderful place to stay. Great location. The managers Rachael and Sean are friendly and take pride in making your stay comfortable. Very clean and well maintained rooms and facilities. Only one block from the beach with great views.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views. The north western corners allows for great views of the broad water...

Hello Cathaussie,
We love that you consider The Crest Apartments a "wonderful place to stay". Thank you for your kind words, and for your room tip. Many guests are impressed with the beautiful views of the North West facing apartments - the broad water and hinterland views are amazing and the beautiful sunshine warms the living areas of the apartment. The balconies can also be utilised for the majority of the day and are sheltered from the ocean breezes. We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon.

From the moment I made a phone enquiry before booking until the end of our stay, the Crest was a perfect choice for our family of 4. Racheal and Sean are very friendly and helpful and the apartment we had on the 14th floor had great views and was great for what we needed. The location is great, and the apartment has everything you need for a family holiday (after a quick supermarket visit to the nearby Australia Fair shopping centre). Highly recommended for family holiday accommodation. If you are travelling from overseas, make sure you visit a supermarket first to buy all the basic essentials.

Hello Greg and Family,
Thank you for saying "The Crest was the perfect choice" for your family. We were thrilled to read that you had an enjoyable holiday. Your tip for a supermarket visit on arrival is an excellent one, families can save money by self-catering as each apartment has a full sized fridge, microwave, dishwasher and oven. We also offer Farmer's Market deliveries on a Saturday and Fruit and Vegetable deliveries on a Tuesday and Friday.... these can be ordered through reception once you are in-house. We look forward to having you come back to Australia for another holiday with us in the future.

My son and I stayed at the Crest in July last year and enjoyed it so much that it was a no-brainer in staying there again last week (July 2014).

We stayed on level 3 last year and this time asked for a higher floor so that we could see the waves breaking on the beach; no drama at all. We were put in a room on level 5, giving us the full ocean view but still on a low floor (18 story building).
The rooms are well maintained, clean, large and bright and extremely well appointed.
The kitchen has a gas Smeg stove (VERY rare in high-rise buildings), a full chef's knife set and great appliances, including a full-sized fridge.
The living area has a massive TV with Foxtel (including Fox Footy!) and each of the two bedrooms have their own LCD TVs too.
The laundry has a washing machine and dryer.
The balcony is huge with a table and chairs.
The gardens are beautiful, as is the pool and BBQ area.
The gym is basic but the cardio equipment is top quality, being the TRUE brand; the xtrainer is awesome.
There is also an indoor pool and games room.
The tennis court is mod-grass but could do with flood-lights, especially during the early dusk of the winter months, but even in school holidays, it wasn't in constant use, so perhaps it's not a must to have lights. I think they were actually being consulted on this while we were there.
The complex is located right between Tedder Ave and the patrolled beach with various bus routes close by and the new trams commencing next week, only a 4 minute walk away.

The management team are absolutely lovely too!
Hi guys! ;-)

Room Tip: As stated in the review, if you want an ocean view including the waves breaking on the beach, reques...

Hello Simon,
WOW, what a review! You have just about covered everything that we love about our building. I am pleased to be able to report that the light rail is now up and running. Many guests are taking full advantage of this excellent public transport service, with the location of the tram stop a short stroll away. Across our front desk we are selling tourist full day bus and tram tickets for $15 adults and $10 children. We can also report that the tennis lights have been installed and are functional. So on your next trip up to stay with us you can play tennis with your son up until 9pm! We look forward to welcoming you back next year and thanks for the kind words in your review.

Crest Apartments in Main Beach are modern, well appointed and extremely clean. The high floor apartment had excellent views and was beautifully warm for our Gold Coast Marathon time in the Coast. The managers were extremely friendly, very helpful and added to a pleasurable stay. Car parking was a breeze and the apartments are a stones throw from the beach and the Main beach shopping precinct. Highly recommended and will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: North facing for winter visit.

Hello Samueljohn,
We were pleased to read that you had a lovely stay with us, whilst you competed in the ever-popular Gold Coast Marathon. Thank you for highly recommending us to others, word-of-mouth is a very powerful recommendation. We do look forward to welcoming you back for the 2015 Gold Coast Marathon - don't forget to book early next year if you haven't already done so. The previous two years have seen us completely booked out for the July Marathon, well in advance. We are a very popular accommodation provider, especially because we are so close to the starting line. Thank you for your review.

Had a fabulous 4 night stay while up on Gold Coast for family wedding. Loved the location, the apartment was very clean and comfortable and relaxing. Has great amenities - gym, indoor pool, tennis, outdoor pool. Close to beach and shopping centre and great restaurants. The view was outstanding and weather perfect, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I just wish we had spent more time there, but would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny

Hello Jenny,
We were so pleased to read that you and your family had a wonderful time at The Crest whilst attending a family wedding. We cater for many large wedding parties by offering a multi-booking service. We understand the complexities of coordinating large groups, and we enjoy assisting however we can. Sydney is not too far away.....hopefully you can join us again soon and stay a little longer than the four nights you enjoyed this time around. Thank you for your review, we appreciate the feedback.

Loved staying here - so close to Main beach, which is quieter than some of the other beaches around. It's an easy walk to Surfer's Paradise, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle.

#76 was a clean and relaxing apartment, with great views of the beach and broad water. It's got a great balcony, enough room to relax and dry your towels!

We stayed here with our three year old who loved the two pools and the quick walk to and from the beach. I loved the spa and sauna... We've already booked our next stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in #76, which was fantastic. It's a north facing apartment, so beautiful sun, and view...

I'm glad to read you had a comfortable stay and a wonderful time. The BBQ is an excellent facility for all guests to enjoy - it offers tables and seating for many, is located directly opposite the outdoor pool and is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and lawn...just the perfect size for children to play. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you back at The Crest Apartments soon.
