“Winter with a Warm Welcome”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

I had never been to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast before and having looked at various places to stay on Tripadvisor, I found Wolngaren Resort which was the only place I had yet come across with no ratings below very good. The owner was looking after a child when we arrived, so gave me the key and directions and said that we could sort out the formalities later, which suited me. Our place was next to a half sized tennis court which I never tried, and was very close to the heated pool and spa.
I had been keen to try out the spa, but it was closed for repair. The heated pool did look inviting, but it was rather exposed to the cold winds which were blowing that weekend, so discretion became the better part of valour.
The unit that we stayed in was very nice. I could have comfortably lived there on a permanent basis. Downstairs was a well appointed kitchen which a microwave, stove, dish washer and plenty of plates, cups, saucers, knives, forks, pots, pans, well you get the picture.
There was a small dining area next to the kitchen and further in was a lounge area with a tv, foxtel and a dvd player. Not all foxtel channels were enabled, but enough to be interesting.
Upstairs was the bathroom/toilet/laundry, and also a bedroom with a good sized and comfortable bed.
We used the unit as a base and stayed there for three nights. At $130 per night off season is pretty good for what you get.
One drawback was that the free Wi-Fi offered was a bit on the flaky side. My iPad worked ok, but neither of our iPhones were able to establish a reliable connection.
Also, for older travellers with mobility problems, the stairs may cause you trouble, so a single storey unit would be advised.
All in all, a nice place reasonably priced with friendly staff.

Spent a long weekend at the Wolngarin Resort with my two kids. Our two bedroom townhouse was spacious, quiet, well equipped, and modern. (Well, maybe too modern -- the fancy computerised washing machine took all the bath towels hostage and had to be replaced, but that didn't detract from our enjoyment.) The public facilities at the place are excellent. My kids loved the pool and spa, and there's a place right by the pool to cook up a barbecue. The location is fine -- close to Gympie Terrace shops and restaurants, but a bit too far to be walkable to Main Beach and Hastings St. That wasn't a problem for us because it wasn't too busy (early June), but I imagine it might be an issue in summer. On the plus side, it's very quiet and private. If the location were "better" -- i.e. if it were right on the beach -- it would cost five times as much.

In fact, I sort of can't figure the price. It really should be a lot more expensive, but I'm certainly not complaining! Thank goodness for TripAdvisor, or I never would have found this place otherwise.

As others have noted, the best feature of the Wolgnarin is Jim, the on-site manager, who is incredibly friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I had some questions at booking and we emailed back and forth and got everything sorted. He helped us with a few minor problems and was a great source of information about things to do in the area.

Loved our stay there, great place and will definitely go back to Wolngarin again.

Great sized units, everything was very very clean. Loads of kitchen utensils to use for cooking. Great pool, cannot fault the place at all. It was our first family trip to Queensland and staying at Wolngarin definitely helped make it memorable :-)

We stayed here for 5 nights just before Easter, and we were really impressed.

We stayed in unit 10, a 1 storey villa by the road. There was no road noise at all as it is in a quiet cul-de-sac. The unit was very well equipped, everything we could possibly need, plus some things we didn't know we needed, but ended up using anyway (sandwich toaster!). Jim the manager even loaned us a wifi booster so we could use our iPad in the unit for no extra charge.

Jim and Tracy are very helpful and friendly, very willing to book tours & provide directions etc. They have loads of books, games and DVDs you can borrow for a rainy day or to relax after a day out. Nothing appear to be too much trouble!

It's an easy walk to Gympie Terrace where there are loads of restaurants, boat hire and kayak places. We didn't make it to Hastings Street (parking was a nightmare and the walk was a bit far for the kids) but we were very happy with the facilities nearby.

All in all, highly recommended!

We are just back from an Easter Vacation at Wolngarin in Noosaville. This is a fantastic resort that has everything that a family needs. The units are spacious, clean and have everything that you will need for your holiday. You can do as little or as much as you like. You can use the tennis court, swim in the pools, have a spa, borrow books or board games from their extensive range of free to loan books and games and finish off with a BBQ. Jim is an onsite Manager who ensures your holiday is a success. He can advise you on places to eat, fish and the best spots on where to drop your crab pots in. The resort is located only minutes away from the river and the long stretch of cafes and restaurants. Jim and Tracy are great down to earth people who will ensure your holiday is hassle free. We will definitely stay here again. True value for money. Our kids loved it and so did we!

Very good value resort for the family, we had a long week-end in October and found the property very well located between Hastings Street and the Noosa River, both could be walked to. We found the staff friendly and helpfull, the rooms were clean and appeared to be well serviced. With a toddler we found the pool to be very good, which he could manage with light supervision.

We would recommend this place to any family's looking for a good value location in Noosa, that is quiet and reasonably located.

BUT: When booking it is not the Versace, so do not complain when your 5 & 6 star taste can only afford 3 star prices and it does not have direct waterfront access.

Room Tip: Tip: Large vechiles may have difficuly some of the car parking is quite tight.

Just back from a week holiday at Wolngarin in Noosaville and we had a fantastic time. we would really recommend the place!!

The location was ideal as it was a short (5minute) walk to the river at Noosaville and all of teh cafes and restaurants along the strip. The river is perfect for young kids as it is really safe for swimming and had good fishing. We walked into Noosa (Hastings street) on one day which took about 25 minutes but it was a great day and the walk home allowed us to burn off the extrat calories from an indulgent lunch at Bistro C.

The accomodation was great. We stayed in one of the townhouses that was set back from the pool (unit 23) and overlooked the half court tennis court. This turned out to be a great location as it was close to all facilities but just far enough away to have that extra bit of privacy. The unit was well presented and really well suited for families (we have young kids -7 and 9 and they loved it). Our kids loved the pool and we even had the first game of tennis (half court) in what must be many years!!

The resort manager (Jim) was excellent with lots of great ideas and only too happy to help out if you needed it.

All, up, we think it was great value for money. As the resort isnt right on the water, it doesnt have "stunning" views but nor does it have the stunning price tag either!! This meant that we could get out and enjoy all that noosa had to offer without comming home with a horrendous credit card debt.

Highly recommended
