Reviewed 25 March 2014

We have now stayed at Raffles Mooloolaba two times now for extended weekends and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. Even taking our now 18 month old twins wasn't a problem as Bob provided 2 high chairs that were ready to go in the rooms prior to our check in. Plus the second bedroom was still big enough to accommodate 2 porta-cots for our boys, even with the two single beds that are in there. We were lucky enough to be in room 505 which has nice views of the ocean. We love the location of Raffles as its so close to Coles, chemists, bottle shop, hotel, etc. And on both of our stays we have been to Underwater World which is only a 10-15min walk down the esplanade. We'll be back again!!

We were seeking a place to relax and unwind. This was just the ticket. Bed and furniture very comfortable and terrace ideal in the afternoon shade. This is the fifth different place we have stayed in Mooloolaba and it generally ranks up with the best in this price range.
Close to supermarket, cafes, restaurants and beach.
Bob is a friendly and helpful host.

Room Tip: Front rooms provide partial sea view and get afternoon shade. Back rooms may be a little quieter as...

Location can't be beat--5 minutes to the beach, with free parking and shops and cafes just across the road. The 2 bedroom spa apartment was comfortable and clean, with full kitchen facilities and plenty of space for 4 adults and a child. Loved having a fully equipped kitchen, but could use some non-stick cookware!

Reasonably priced, and easy, hassle free check in and out. Would recommend!

Room Tip: Balcony facing the beach had a bit of road noise, but worth it for the views and breeze!

A big thank you to Raffles Mooloolaba, hubby, three boys and I (mum) had a awesome time of 7 day stay. Our boys were either on the beach, swimming, eating or sleeping not one complaint/argument from them so from that, a well deserved excellent result. So impressed with our accommodation and Bob......thank you again for your friendliness and help. It is the perfect location for my holiday and we will see you again, that's for sure !
P.S
Keep the boards Bob :)

My partner and I spent two nights at Raffles in late October 2013.

We were impressed with our room. It was very spacious and clean with modern furniture in the living room. The bed was great - nice and comfy and there was minimal noise from outside which is good for those sleep ins.

We found the location perfect as it only a 1 min walk to the beach and esplanade strip of shops and cafes. 5 min walk to patrolled part of the beach.

Would gladly stay here again. Thanks Bob for a good stay.

Thanks for a fantastic week - a quick walk to the beach for NYE the friendly atmosphere of Mooloolaba. The room was spacious close to Coles and clean and tidy. Aircon fox movies pool and free wifi just topped it off. See you again soon and thanks for a great family holiday

We always review each hotel we stay out, and I must say from our first arrival to our last day was absolutely fantastic, Bob was very ffriendly and helpful, and I would most definitely recomend this accomodation to stay at, we had a 2 bedroom spa unit which was very close to shops and the main drag, public transport was not a problem if needed, and we were so close to the fire works no need to even leave the room, grear stay and will be staying here again. Room was very clean and is fantastic for families. We stayed their for New Years which as really really good, great fireworks and atmosphere. Thanks Bob, will be comming back.
