Stunning views, spacious, great family spot

The Waterford was a fantastic place to stay. The views are breathtaking and as they are from every room you are always connected to the outdoors. The apartment was spacious and provided my husband and I enough space away from our three children, who had enough space to play. The kitchen was fully equipped. The spa bath was great, a beautiful view, especially at nighttime over the canal. The reception was lovely with lots of useful information. The pool and spa were a great place to relax and we used the tennis court several times. Walking distance to cafes and directly opposite the beach with uninterrupted views.

Lovely apartment with beachfront views

Pros: Very spacious and well equipped rooms
Location: Very close to Surfers Paradise. Central to shopping and the Theme Parks.
The apartment was very spacious and with gorgeous ocean views. Location was very close to the heart of Surfers Paradise but far enough away to be out of the busyness. Well appointed rooms, very comfortable.

Sensational views away from the hustle and bustle

Absolutely loved our time at the Waterford. Facilities and accommodation were all great, whilst everything you needed was just minutes from your doorstep. Would love to return one day.

Nice and close to beach

Pros: Overall, clean and close to beaches.
Cons: Room shouldn't have been rented out with that smell and the managers should have made that decision, don't put it on the guest upon check in.
Location: Lovely location
It was a great weekend away and we didn't let the smelly room hamper our stay. The owners did warn us of a smell to the carpet (apparently it had just been cleaned) and we did get the opportunity to check the room before paying but when you have 3 excited kids, we thought with a bit of airing the carpets would dry and it would be fine. The smell didn't go away. The location was great, plenty to do and overall the premises was clean and presentable.

Great location right on the beach

Pros: The location, the views, the easy access to motorways and theme parks, the pool, spa and other amenities
Cons: The bathrooms were a little dated, but were clean and serviceable.
Location: Sea world and Tedder Avenue within walking distance, good access to trams and motorways. Very close to surfers paradise.
The Waterford is in a great location, close enough to Surfers Paradise for when you want it, but far enough away to be quiet. The views are stunning and the apartments are lovely, very roomy with fabulous wrap around balconies.
