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.

We have just spent four nights at the apartments and we could not be more satisfied. The accommodation was brilliant, beds were so comfortable and the whole place spotless and so well equipped, you couldn't ask for more, so many little extras that make such a difference. Plenty of housekeeping items, washing powder and dish washing liquid and even tissues in the bathroom and towels that would be worthy of a five star hotel. The pool area was also perfect and well maintained, we didn't use the barbeques but they also looked great. So close to Kings Beach, easily accessed via the lane at the back of the apartments, just a short three minute walk and from there you could head into the main Street of Caloundra via the boardwalk. Deb and Dave were extremely friendly and helpful. All in all an excellent place to stay whilst in beautful Caloundra.

Well where do I start. We have been staying with Deb and Dave for years and treat us like family. We always stay for two weeks every year just after Xmas. They have seen our children grow up during this time and we have seen Sam grow from a young baby to an energetic school boy.
Our unit is always neat and clean for when we arrive. We are always made feel welcome. Deb and Dave can never do enough for us.
They start by helping us bring up our bags each year. If I need a book to read, Deb is at the door with some novels. If there is a huge storm and all of Caloundra loses power, Dave comes out with a torch to help us to our unit.
The heated huge pool is fantastic. We always do the swim after the beach each day (part of our ritual). The bbq is always clean and ready to use.
Cheltenham is in the best location behind the Kings Beach Tavern and walking distance to the beach, surf club, coffee shops, restaurants and to the main street of Caloundra.
We have wonderful views of the water. Cheltenham is THE place for your holidays.
We are fortunate enough to be able to say that Deb and Dave have become our friends. We respect their opinion and their work ethics. There is never enough that they can do for us. We will be moving up to the Sunny Coast at the end of this year because of work commitments and unfortunately will not be heading back to our favourite holiday destination at Cheltenham.
We cannot recommend Cheltenham enough. Thank you.
Mick & Sandra Madden

We stayed at Cheltenham Apartments on a family holiday in September 2011. We were disappointed - that we couldn't stay longer!

The location of the apartments is excellent, only about 200m from the beach and the views of Kings Beach from our rooms on the 3rd floor were fabulous. You could hear the waves washing on the sand in the evenings.

We found everything we needed in the well equiped kitchen and thought the cleanliness was excellent. Dave showed us around on our arrival and explained what we needed to know about the rooms/equipment/keys etc. At night we found the apartment to be very quiet which is always helpful when you have two small children.

The office is not always manned but this presents absolutely no problem as you're able to speak to Dave or Deb easily by calling from the phone in your room or pressing the call bell at the office door - and our requests were always dealt with promptly, efficiently and with a smile.

We dealt mostly with Dave, apartment manager, and have only positive things to say. He went out of his way to look after us particularly when we arrived earlier than check in time, as well as after we had checked out. We had a couple of hours after checking out before our airport transfer arrived and Dave took pity on us lurking in the pergola and not only invited us up to his own apartment to get out of the rain, but put on the TV for the kids and made us a cup of tea and offered us one of Deb's fantastic chocolate chippie biscuits (hope I'm not getting you in trouble with Deb here Dave).

Unfortunately the heater for the pool was broken until our second to last day but I understand this was the first time in six years this has happened and I know Dave was doing his best to get it fixed quickly, which he did - well done!. When it was we spent hours in the water, the pool is larger than most, and certainly something that sets Cheltenham apart from the rest I would think.

Thanks for making our holiday comfortable and relaxing.

The problems began on our arrival.

They made a mistake with our quoted price (confirmed by letter) with their records and tried to charge us more. When this was pointed out (showing David the letter). There was no apology for their mistake, which made us feel quite awkward having just arrived. We were also offered a complimentary bottle on wine on arrival – we eventually had to ask them for it and again were made to feel VERY awkward.

The Units are dusty and poorly maintained – for example:

The Mosquito netting to the main bedroom was FULL of dust.
The ceiling fans in every room were coated in dust.
Generally the apartment had not be cleaned properly before they checked us in.
The toilet ran
The dishwasher leaked
The TV reception was poor (Pay TV & Free to air).
The single car space is a tight fit and hard to fit larger cars (4WD or Ute's).

The Resident managers were VERY uptight and unapproachable. The office was never attended during our stay. They also put their personal life above the guests, during office hours.

If you want to have a great holiday... ?

DON”T STAY AT CHELTENHAM APARTMENTS !

Response from CheltenhamCaloundra, Manager at Cheltenham Apartments
Responded 27 Apr 2011
In reply to this review, we wish to outline some facts from Management. Firstly, you were offered an extremely good price for your stay to the point that you contacted us requesting a quote for two apartments for a holiday in 2012. 1) The tariff mix up was due to the tariff for 2012 being noted by accident. Simple mistake made and an apology was given. 2) Wine was not in the apartment as we had not confirmed your preference. White or Red. Once the next Guest had been completely checked in, a call would have been made to you in your apartment confirming your choice. This option was short circuited by your wife coming down and demanding it. Remembering you had just checked in. 3) We accepted the Mosquito net did have some dust around the top, and agreed it should be removed. However, the fans were not dusty as they had been cleaned by us after the last Guest. The blades however, are timber, and are marked along the leading edge which could be mistaken quickly for dirt. 4) Was not made aware the toilet ran on. It has recently been replaced and no one mentioned the problem or a plumber would have been called. 5) Again, the leaky dishwasher – this was not mentioned either, and the first we knew was reading this review. 6) Poor TV Reception – again this was not mentioned during your stay and no other Guest had mentioned this either. With digital TV, reception can vary depending on weather and cloud cover. 7) We provide a Standard, single lock up Garage for each Apartment. It is not our fault when a Guest arrives with an extra large 4WD, twin cab, complete with tow bar. We do have outdoor car parking available which can be used if necessary. Your car was in the Garage most of the time and once again, you never mentioned any issue you had with car parking. 8) Upon check in, we advise all Guests that our Office is not always manned, as we are small and there are other duties/tasks that we need to attend to. We are always contactable by either using the telephone in each apartment or Intercom at Reception. 9) Putting our Personal lives ahead of the Guest – after eight (8) years in this Building we have a large percentage of repeat Guests. Many of whom have become friends and yes, we can been seen chatting / socializing with them either by the Pool or local restaurants and it is some of these Guests who have contacted us after reading this review telling us not to be put off by it, to carry on doing what we are doing as it is always a pleasure to stay at Cheltenham – their words, not ours. Our visitor books mention none of your issues, and appear full of compliments regarding how much is done by us beyond the call and how clean the place is. Perhaps you should have taken the time to read the Visitors book in your Unit. If any issues are not brought to our attention, then we are not able to rectify them and the first we heard from you, was when you demanded we clean the Unit immediately, after already staying three (3) days. This could not be done immediately. As it was School holidays, we were unable to offer an alternative Unit to you, although if brought to our attention the previous day, then this would have been an option. It was decided from our point of view that we could not have pleased you, so best to refund the balance of your stay, which you took without question. (Later in a further email to us, you intimated that we should refund the balance of monies). This we could not do as you had already stayed three (3) days at a heavily reduced tariff. Enough said, we move on and are extremely motivated by our regular loyal guests who appreciate what we do for them with a smile and time spent with them is time enjoyed by all.

We stayed at Cheltenham over New Years and can't fault the place. Dave and Deb were great, super friendly and helpful. The place has a great vibe and it's easy to see why they have guests returning each year.

We stayed in Apartment 16 which had great views over Kings Beach and towards Shelly Beach - roof top bbq's are a must and each night we would watch the bats fly in - which the (British) other half couldn't get enough of! The unit is spacious, modern, bright and well equipped, we couldn't have asked for more.

We loved our stay here and hopefully will be adding to their list of happy, returning customers.

Thanks again Dave and Deb!

This was our 4th year staying at this venue for a week - and I'll be back again next year! Deb and Dave the managers are fabulous and always go out of their way to accommodate their guests! The apartments are a good size with a well stocked kitchen, your own laundry and a balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean (unit 11) where I had breakfast every morning. The stairs ensured my daily exercise but it would not be suited for persons with mobility issues. The pool and grounds are well maintained. It's a short walk to Kings Beach.

We had a fabulous holiday staying here. Right from the beginning Deb and Dave made us feel welcome and Dave even helped take our luggage up 3 flights of stairs (the stairs kept us fit and healthy during our stay!).
We stayed in Unit 18 and had fabulous sea views and it was very relaxing looking at the water while sitting on the balcony. Kings Beach is so close and we were up every morning going for a walk along the board walk and watched the stunning sunrise.
While the carpet etc looks a little dated we were aware of this from the reviews and this certainly never detracted from having the most wonderful holiday and we will definitely be back to stay.

We stayed at Cheltenham Appartments for 8 days and didnt want to leave. It was our fourth visit there and each time its consistently great. We stayed in a two bedroom appartment on the second floor giving a great view of kings beach. The cleanliness can not be faulted and the facilities are all of a good quality. The managers Dave and Deb go out of there way to make you feel welcome. The heated pool was fantastic and we spent many hours there relaxing. I absolutley recommend staying here especially for families. My family and I will definitely be back!!!
