“Comfortable - would stay there again.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2010

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the third floor for 7 nights.

We arrived early and none of the 3 couples could get into our rooms before the 2 o'clock check in.

Our room overlooked the pool and spas. It was a comfortable room with a small balcony. The bathroom was fine....nothing elaborate but fine and the shower was good. The bed was comfortable. There is air conditioning and also fans in the bedroom and living area. The kitchen was good with microwave, hot plates and dishwasher. The living area is adequate but not huge.

There are in house movies along with some cable tv channels.

We loved the position of the property - across the road from the surf club and beach. Terrific walks along the board walk. Lots of restaurants and shops within very easy walking distance.

When we stayed here it was not school holidays but there were loads of kids - and being above the pool it was quite noisy for most of the day.

French Quarter is a great place to stay, best location 2 steps to the beach, long boards rental just outside the gate on Hastings street. the swimming pool is perfect for families.
The renovated Deluxe apartements are great. Reception staff very helpful.

Some reviewers gave this place a very poor rating. They must either have impossibly high standards or they were very unlucky. Sure, they are renovating the resort at the moment and it is taking longer than planned, but there was very little noise or disruption and the new (deluxe) rooms are a great improvement. We stayed in an un-renovated two bed apt on the middle floor which is probably the least desirable combination. Even so it was well appointed and great value. Paying $250 a night for two rooms on Hastings Street is fantastic value. You can easily pay 4 times this amount for a similar space in a more modern block only metres away. The pool is great for kids (a little too much chlorine maybe) and the whole atmosphere is very relaxing. Get an apt in the back of the resort and you are away from any noise on Hastings Street. Staff were unobtrusive and very helpful. They replaced our washing machine the same day because it was not working very well and did it without question. For us, Noosa is all about a beachside Hastings St location and this place delivers in spades.

I booked and paid for my family and I to stay. It was advertised as having been recently upgraded with perfect and bright new modenised rooms. we stayed two years ago, and guess what? They were not modernised. Rang reception straight away absolutely gutted. Room we asked for was over looing pool, we were put in room over looking busy street. Told they were full and message would be left for morning staff. Guess what, no return call to ask of we were okay and happy. Woken every morning at 5.30am by rubbish truck. Here is a list of everything that we experienced. Snail pace lifts, hot water that takes 5 to 7 minutes to come through, no room service for 4 days at a time. Wet towels that we couldnt dry because dryer keeps breaking down. It was repaired, but still did not function. worst was when we came back to our room after a day at the beach, and it was wedged open by room service and left open without anyone there!! I complained and was given a bottle of wine. Rubbish bins in garage ALWAYS FULL, sometimes parking non exsistant. I paid over $2800 AUS for this fiasco. Take my warning, do not stay here!

Booked and paid a month in advance with Discover Queensland for 14 days in Noosa at the French Quarter. Was assured of a large sunny 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen as one of our party has food allergies and can't eat commercial food. Have this in writing. Arrived to find small, shabby 1.5 bedroom apartment with 2 hot plates and tiny little fridge. The room was on the south side, below road level. The second bedroom had no natural light, the beds were uncomfortable and not enough furniture for 3 of us to all sit at the same time.
The complex was dirty and our apartment was unacceptably grimy. Complained immediately to management but couldn't be shifted as they claimed to be full. Immediately rang Discover Queensland who wouldn't refund our money, or transfer to another resort.
We left and found a lovely apartment in Little Cove for less than we had paid for the French Quarter. Also, while we were complaining at reception we were approached by two other couples who were leaving in disgust - and they had paid $100.00 per night. 'Discover Queensland' claimed never to have had a complaint about the French Quarter before and refused to refund the money paid.
My advice, avoid having anything to do with 'Discover Queensland' and stay well away from the French Quarter. Also, we arrived home with bed bugs which I think we picked up there.

We have just returned from a four day stay in Noosa at the Breakfree French Quarter.We were pleasantly surprised at the rooms after reading some of the reviews.Our one bedroom deluxe was on the second floor with a small balcony almost looking at the pool :) The location of the French Quarter is indeed fabulous,parking great and pool area and gardens tidy and lush.We all loved our stay and would rebook there anytime.The only niggle would be to get the cleaning staff to pay more attention to the details such as cleaning the mould out of the shower door bifolds (eww) and out of the bath area in general.Thankyou Reception staff you were all pleasant and courteous.

This was the weekend from hell, not at all relaxing or enjoyable. With a 1yr old and 3 yr old there wasn't a car park available and the lift was broken. We carted kids up three flights of stairs to a room that was very tired and stank. The fridge had been turned off, the reverse cycle a/c didn't work in the kids room (they cried all night because they were cold) and there was NO hot water at anytime we tried to shower. Unacceptable! The best thing about the resort was leaving to come home to a comfortable bed. Oh and the location was good. The service was below average and when we offered feedback they didn't care.
