    I stayed at the Crest Apartments as I had to be on the Gold Coast for a conference. I found the staff to be very welcoming, the room clean and tidy, and it was in a great location with many restaurants and cafes only a short walk away.

  • Fourth Testimonial

    Our stay at The Crest Apartments was wonderful! With 2 young kids we were in the outdoor and indoor pool everyday during our 5 night stay. The location was perfect - short walk to the beach, short drive to Cavill Ave but quiet enough for us to relax and enjoy our holiday. The apartment was clean and provided everything we needed. We will be back!

    We have stayed at many apartments on the GC and after 2 nights at the Crest, it is my favourite. The staff are lovely and helpful and very efficient. Great location and facilities for all ages. This may sound weird to mention but I couldn't believe how fast the lifts were. Can't wait to come back for a longer stay!
