Are you excited to visit Surfers Paradise or perhaps planning to come here? Either way, we are so waiting for you! In fact, your accommodation is already prepared. But what are your choices really?
When I travel, one of my major considerations is accommodation. I do not know about you, maybe it’s just because of the industry I’m in, but I always want to get value for money. Whether I am in town for business or leisure, it is important that I get to retire to an apartment or hotel suite that is comfortable, safe and private, where I can be with myself and I can reflect on the things that I have done for the day. It helps me appreciate the time I spent for traveling so much more.
If you feel the same way with me, then I have the best recommendation for you: Circle on Cavill.
Of course, you are looking for proof. Well how about this; is currently ranked #15 of 58 hotels in Surfers Paradise on TripAdvisor! This is ranked by the reviews and ratings or real people, so I’m confident when I say that Circle on Cavill is one of the best choices you will ever make when it comes to booking accommodation for your Gold Coast holiday.
But before we get into details about it, let us look at the history of the Circle on Cavill and where they name derived from.
If you are in Surfers Paradise, one of the names that you will see frequently is Cavill. An avenue is named after James Cavill who can be considered as the founder of Surfers Paradise, although back then, it was first called Elston. He bought no less than 25 acres of land. That was in 1920. About 3 years after, he paid a sum of £40 to buy a block and build a hotel; being a hotelier in Brisbane it is an industry he is familiar with. In the following years, he continued to build much of what is now Surfers Paradise which is why Cavill Avenue was named in James’ honor.
Circle on Cavill, being located at the head of Cavill Avenue kept the namesake. Circle on Cavill itself offers resort style apartments made up of 2 towers that were constructed at different times although in the same year, which was 2007. A bridge then connected both on level four—a perfect look-back to how the hotel industry started in Surfers Paradise.
Now that you know something about the hotel let me tell you about the hotel and why it’s well loved by many…
If you’ll check our profile in TripAdvisor, you’ll immediately find out the first thing they like about Circle on Cavill is the location.

Cavill Avenue, where you can find a shopping district and several choices of entertainment and dining are only 50 metres away still. Woolworths is also just next door, so you won’t have any problem buying stuff that you need. If you’re using a public transport, you’ll surely like the idea that the bus stop is merely across.
