“Ok if you don't mind a dirty room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2011

I stayed for six nights in a deluxe one bedroom apartment the last week of Aug / beginning of Sep.

Positives:

The location is great, lovely pool and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Negatives:

- I had to ask for my 'refresh package' .... teas, water, skin care gift
- No hand towels
- Dishwasher had dishes in it and there was a half eaten ice-cream cup in the freezer
- The apartment needed a thorough clean ... dusty tables, internal sliding door cavity full of dirt and dust, dirty smudges on bathroom doors, marks on carpet, stained blankets that didn't smell clean and dirty cutlery.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been thoroughly cleaned.

Right on Hastings street, refurbished rooms, we stayed in room 240 which was a 2 bedroom apartment, overlooking the pool and spa, with spa to main bathroom. Close to beach, National park, shopping and restaurants. Plenty of things to keep everyone occupied and room to just sit back and relax. Check in and out was a breeze, rates were very reasonable - we picked up a 3 night stay deal! Rooms were clean and had everything you needed to make your stay enjoyable.

We booked a two bedroom appartment which had great facilites. These are not serviced appartments so you need to think about this when using the kithcen facilites (which is well appointed) and towels but there is a cloths rack and lot of room on the deck. While we did not swim in the pool it looked very well presented. The location is what realy sells this place. A very short walk to Hastings Streeet and Main Beach. Great for a weekend away where you dont want to use the car and enjoy the sea and sun.

Room Tip: Two bedroom was probably too much for couples - but make sure you get one with a full kitchen if tha...

Great great great position. Opposite the beach and great for us because it was the closest hotel on the main street to enable us to walk to the point to surf!! I'd say average for service because the rooms do not get cleaned everyday.. Unless u r staying for longer than 8 days! The room when we arrived was dirty! Hair on my pillow, food crumbs all through the draws! I had to wash all the dishes provided because u could tell it was really roughly cleaned! Some of the lights in the room didn't work either! Overall it was quite a modern room in a good position in noosa :)

We stayed here in August. Stayed in a two bedroom deluxe apartment on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool. Modern apartment, light and airy. Enjoying swimming in the pool and having a spa. Great location right on Hastings Street. Would highly recommend to couples or families.

Stayed here for three nights (Tue-Fri) in Aug 11 with my wife. 2nd floor 1 bedroom apartment facing Hasting street. Stayed in a refurbished room. The location of the apartments is outstanding. Shops on the doorstep, beach about 30m away, restaurants and bars nearby too. The national park is a short stroll away.
The apartment is light, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The living area is combined with the kitchen and offers excellent air con, flat screen LCD TV, dishwasher, two ring cooker, microwave, plenty of cutlery and dishes. and has a comfortable two seater setee which folds out to give an extra bed. Balcony overlooking Hastings street is good for people watching and gets the sun as well, there is a table with 4 chairs on the balcony and a sun lounger.
The bathroom is well appointed with shower/spa bath, a roller shutter hides the washing machine and dryer from the bathroom. Hairdryer is supplied.
The bedroom sits between the bathroom and the kitchen/living area and can be completely closed off using sliding doors. The bed is comfortable.
Secure underground parking is available, and there are vending machines in the complex for juice and snacks. We never used the pool area but looks lovely and well maintained.
Noosa Heads is gorgeous and we found the apartment location to be outstanding. we can also recommend the Surf Club on the beach which serves reasonably priced excellent quality meals all day, cheap drinks as well with entertainment most nights. It has a fantastic view of the ocean and it is easy to just sit there and relax. Try walking round the National Park walks with stunning coastal views. Hell's Gate along the walk is worth the trek!
We thourghly enjoyed our time there and would go back without hesitation. I would probably ask for the same room as it was perfect for us. If anyone has any questions that i can help with just ask....
