We stayed here for our honeymoon after finding a nice little package on discoveraustralia.com for six nights and breakfast included.
The place is obviously a little old but they've made the best of what is available. Check-in was without fuss and that's pretty much the last we saw of anyone unless we had to approach reception to ask for something. We had a garden suite which is the basic suite but all of them come with large spa baths in the bedroom.
It is very much a self contained unit with kitchenette which is the sort of thing we like. There's a room service booklet which is a local service that can pick-up and deliver dishes from local restaurants or take-away places to your door. The one flaw I found was with some of the printed information. The little pamphlet in the room said that the resort cafe 'Ebb Bar & Bistro' was open until 10.30 daily for breakfast. On our first morning it was approaching 10am and we received a phone call from the cafe asking if we'd be coming for our included breakfast as they close at 10. But in the info it said 10.30. It turned out that was on weekends and during the week it's 10am. Also on the room service booklets we tried to order from once place to be told by them that they no longer use the restaurant we wanted to order from.
Other than that minor flaw, there wasn't really much else to complain about. The TV and stereo in the suite is rather basic, no wide screen plasmas or whiz bang iPod compatible sound systems. My wife did however find the bed rather uncomfortable. It is noticeably quiet around the place and we didn't really run into any other guests in our travels other than breakfast in the cafe. The pool area is quite big but was quiet during our stay possibly due to it being winter.
The breakfast dishes in the cafe include either your choice of a continental buffet (fruit, cereal) or some plated dishes. They were all delicious. Help yourself to toast and juice is included.
The location is quite good. 'The Reef' hotel is right across the road and has a bottle shop open until 10pm weeknights and midnight Friday/Saturday. Hastings Street is about a 10 minute walk down the hill where you'll find a heap of swanky restaurants, a few takeaway places and a range of boutique specialty shops. Also of course down this way is the main beach of Noosa Heads which is patrolled for people to swim with access to the Noosa Heads national park.
About a five minute walk the other way you'll come across Noosa Junction which is a small little shopping village that you'll find all your mainstream stores. There's a Coles supermarket, pharmacy and a Target for you to grab any supplies etc. you may need for your stay.
Another fault was that our room was missed for servicing. Rooms are serviced for every three days for any stay of about a week or more. It didn't matter too much as anything we needed to grab like washing detergent or toilet paper was available at reception. There's also a washing machine and dryer in the suites.
