Ours was a well appointed spacious two bedroom apartment on the tenth floor with fantastic views up and down river and towards the ocean. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and places of interest, with secure basement parking included. Rooms were all clean and staff were both helpful and friendly.

Lovely apartments, clean rooms and well stocked, as well as a very good location and good facilities, however the wifi is incredibly expensive and should be free like the rest of the world. Even third world countries like Thailand have free wifi wherever you go.

These apartments are ideally situated in Surfers Paradise right by the Nerang River and a 5 minute walk into the Surfers shops and the beach.Great views of the river from the deck which get sunshine all day. Our apartment was spotless and very well appointed.

My husband and I just love Spectrum Apartments, we highly recommend them & stay here whenever we are in the Gold Coast. The apartment complex is located close to Cavill Mall and surfers beach and overlooks the river. The views are breathtaking and very peaceful to wake up to. Just sit back on your balcony and watch the water activities...

Thanks for your lovely feedback. The river views are spectacular, we agree, especially at this time of year with the sunrise and sunsets. Bumbles is one of our favourites too for a great coffee :) We look forward to having you back later on in the year. Cheers!
