Moorings On Cavill

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was on Cavill Ave with close walk to shops and transport. Staff were very helpful and even though we arrived early our rooms were ready. The views were spectacular with small glimpses of the beach thru the buildings. The view of the river at night was great. The suite contained everything that we required plus more. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Fantastic views, awesome accommodation, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable management and staff. Had a wonderful experience. Recommend this to all my family and friends, will definitely be back later in the year. Close to everything and away from the hustle and bustle. Great restaurants nearby and walking distance to whatever we wanted to do. Awesome!!!!

Close to everything central location, easy going very knowledgeable staff. Great views & location def. be back in the near future. Huge rooms with all the things you need perfect for families or couples that want a perfect location.

Its my first day here and I just thought that an immediate review is necessary. My husband and I are very happy. The Receptionist was kind enough to let us in our room earlier since it was ready. That was a plus for me. We walked in well furnished. Well organised. Very spacious. Nice and tidy. Close walk to all necessities. Good location. Pool also great and clean and loved the afternoon sun. Deducted only 1 point as the windows and toilet could be better cleaned. But will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic experience with family of 5. Location short walk to main shops/supermarket/beach, no car required. Pool and facilities well maintained. Apartment was clean, spacious and very well equipped, including air-conditioning. Free Wifi and Foxtel which satisfied kids. Incredible river views. Managers Damon and Tracy (and staff) were wonderful. Thanks for such a memorable holiday. We will be back:)

Beautiful Apartment Room in Surfers Paradise. Thanks to the manager for great customer service even though after reception timings. Very clean apartment with everything you need to stay for a holidays. Beautiful views from rooms and balcony. Internet was free and unlimited. Parking was free.

Nice Apartments on Surfers Paradise. Neat and clean. Free Parking. Free Unlimited Wifi. Initially we had some misunderstanding but later it was resolved very professionally by the property manager. Property manager is very helpful and polite. Great views from Balcony and Rooms

My Wife and I stay a few Nights and we had no trouble accessing local Food, Beach and Entertainment. The Pool and amenities were well maintained when extremely help management. With a Woolworth Store nearby we could easily buy food to BBQ beside the Pool.

Must've been built in the mid-80s, apartment still has the original look with no obvious maintenance done to it. So expect dirty curtains, mould in the showers, broken taps, rotten soap holders (and these were made out of metal!!!), smelly apartment, stinking dishwasher, cracked bathroom vanity, broken window locks (NOT great for safety with small children). Whilst the location is central, apartment facing the City is very noisy. So, who gave it a 4-star rating???? Should be more like a 2 star with the corresponding price reduction. PS No need for the Management to reply to this, will NEVER stay there again!!!

It was our second visit to Moorings, and overall I was quite happy with everything. It's not a 5 star hotel so don't expect the apartment to be spotless - in our case the dishwasher had some buttons missing so it took time to get it going, shower had some shelves missing, bathtubs plug wasn't matching the bath (reception staff kindly provided another one next morning) and the Foxtel was working intermittently. However everything was tidy and presented well, the location is amazing and the views were breathtaking. We stayed 5 nights at Moorings, and just like our first visit, we would not hesitate to recommend the place.The place is mostly quiet, staff are polite and helpful, apartment spacious and air-conditioned. However, on the morning of our departure, we went to the beach for a morning swim. This was when I got the call from the bank - apparently, my cards were stolen and used in few places already - in the sum of about $500. I returned to the hotel and went to my vehicle straight away - it was parked in the allocated spot in the "secure" undercover parking. Surprise - the car was broken into and lots of our stuff stolen, including $1500 tablet, GPS, bags, clothing and my wallet with all of my cards. We went to the hotel reception and the hotel managers quickly checked the CCTV's - the offender accessed the garage through the garage door apparently using an electronic FOB and was going from car to car taking stuff and apparently he also broke to the apartment right next to the one we were staying in (he took a couple of TV's from that apartment)! The manager also mentioned herself that her car was in the same carpark and unlocked (this will be relevant later) Not sure how it was possible since the manager told us that every fob key has is accounted for and has to be activated by the management. My wife contacted the hotel once we got back home and the reply was polite but the management blamed us for not locking our car (although we do remember locking it). According to the management, the hotel attracts various, not always good people so based on that statement 0I guess be prepared for the car or the apartment to be broken into. Based on all that I am not sure I can recommend Moorings to anyone who considers safety high on their list of priorities during their holiday. As we were staying with small children, I was honestly shocked that this sort of thing can happen in the secure carpark of an expensive apartment hotel and also lack of empathy concerned us too. The reception staff were very polite and empathetic. For the record, no compensation was offered or provided by the hotel (at the very least, later check out would be nice since we spent 2 hours on the phone with police and banks).
