Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed here from Dec 30 2012 - Jan3 2013. On arrival we found our one bed apartment freshly cleaned, very spacious with great view over the river. As other reviews have said the apartment is very tired, out of the seventies,but serviceable . We were however disappointed having booked a queen bed only to be given double. We also found the lack of wine glasses, champagne glasses , no ironing board, broken towel rail in the bathroom and no main light in the bedroom( only a side lamp)along with only 2 out of seven light globes working in the main living area a problem. On reporting to management, it took two days to receive glassware( but only 2 champagne, bad luck if we wanted to have our friends over for a drink! Promise of wine glasses soon never happened) when an ironing board was reluctantly supplied it was old rusty and fell apart as soon as I went to use it. We won't stay here again.

Thornton Towers may be 20 plus years old. However is located on the Southern end of Surfers Paradise 2 blocks from Beach just off the GC Highway right beside the Light Rail, it is an affordable stay with very Large rooms in a first class condition. the grounds are well cared for, just finishing off Pool and BBQ Reno Oct 2016. Friendly faces . Nice place to enjoy Sauna,Spa and Pool after a big day out.

I was in a 1 bdrm apartment and I was very surprised on the room size it was excellent, very spacious loved it and I also had a beautiful view of the lake, was awesome. Motel is very clean and also enjoyed th great facilities, pool & spa. There was only one minor fault I found it was the noisey traffic, but it was bearable will recommend to others and will return again in the near future. Thankyou

These apartments are looking very dated, but are massive - huge living area, large bedrooms, a laundry bigger than most hotel ensuites (great for storing pool noodles etc). The decor was retro, terrible artworks etc, but all comfortable and in good working order, and with 3 children, it was a great place to be able to relax and not be precious about the things in the room. The kitchen is quite workable, and stocked reasonably with enough cooking gear to service all our needs. The views across the river and mountains was gorgeous - I think it would be a better side than the "ocean" side. Close to everything you need, walking distance to surfers and beach. The biggest disadvantage was the noise of the traffic - you get a constant hum of traffic when the balcony doors are open. We were also disappointed to miss out on the indoor heated pool, but my kids still braved the chilly outdoor pools - a separate wading pool is always a bonus with little ones!

Stayed here for a week with family, the apartments are a little dated however the rooms are massive....must be the biggest on the coast. Good facilities and easy walk to all attractions. Overall great value for money, and will be returning.

Pools were great Great location in surfers and quite reasonable rates for the apartment we rented. Room was quiet, well appointed and had aircon. Good views towards the river and the hinterland on the side we were on.

Very spacious apartments, some more dated than others. Situated in between Surfers & Broadbeach on excellent bus routes, walk to shops, restaurants, beach etc. Great views from river side, but road is noisy. Brilliant pools inside & out, plus spa & sauna, & BBQ area. Ask for air conditioning when booking as not all rooms have it, same for dishwashers. Currently (2012) building repairs are being done, & road works are ongoing for a long job of building a light-rail system. These jobs will create extra noise around the building for some time. Overall great value for money.

"Ask for what you need when you book ie. air conditioning, dishwasher, comfy furniture, as all apartments are different. The "D" apartments have an extra large wrap-around balcony with brilliant river views and are bright & sunny."
