We took a 1 x bedroom apartment which had three floors to walk up as there was no elevator. there are three blocks and we were very aware of this. The Manager made it clear before we booked.

Moorings is in a great location and the apartments are very spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. As regular visitors to Golden Beach we will continue to book in to Moorings. Good rates available off peak and mid week! New managers are doing a great job.

Stunning views from our 5th floor apartment. Very spacious - 2 bed 2 bath and great kitchen lounge and secure parking. Quiet part of the town. Close to all the amenities we needed. Beach right in front of hotel. Great Cafe restaurant on-site. Short walk to rent bikes, canoes, boats. Loved it. We'll be back 😃
