Reviewed 6 October 2012

We stayed at MacQuarie Lodge in Sept '12 for 6 nights with our kids and 1 year old grandchild. The 3 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor was very clean, spacious and well equipped. Management were very obliging with providing a cot and highchair, and when we advised the vacuum cleaner was broken, it was replaced the same day with a brand new one. The apartment was reasonably modern with a great view. We had free internet usage which was fantastic and the pool was perfect for relaxing and chilling out. Management were very friendly, the only note we would make is that reception is not open long enough, closing late afternoon. The complex was within walking distance of shops and restaurants but we needed to use the car a lot to do anything else. There were 2 nights where sleep was a little elusive due to apartments either side of us having parties. I am sure if we had rung reception we would have had this sorted. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a nice relaxing holiday with children.

Stayed for 2 nights in 3b/r apartment with 7 people. Spacious and everyone had a great time. Clean, neat, quiet and relaxing. Great pool/spa & bbq area. River in the backyard, great fishing for kids. Near to shops & walking distance to Hastings Street. Good value for money and a great place for a family holiday. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Definately would go back.

We stayed at Macquarie Lodge over Xmas and New Year 2011/12 with our extended family and had a 3 brm apt on the ground floor. Our apartment was nicely appointed and very spacious and the location is great - you can walk to Hastings St in 10 minutes or thereabouts.
However, there are unfortunately a few too many buts:
- the apartment's private deck area & outside furniture was neglected and dirty.
- the pool water was unhygenic and the pool area appeared generally unkempt
- the spa pool didn't work during our entire 10-day stay.
- the manager is spectacularly ill-suited for this type of business; he was persistently grumpy and made us feel exceptionally uncomfortable and unwelcome (à la Fawlty Towers, but without the entertainment value)
- the building itself has a distinct institutional feel akin to a council housing estate, and is not at all in line with the "luxury" promise
- in the small reception area there is a stairway to the manager's private quarters; it was literally chained off. We felt that chain perfectly illustrated the general vibe of the place: guests aren't welcome but rather endured.
I wish I could have provided a more positive review ...

We stayed at 3 bedroom apartment with wonderful views of the river and the surrounding area. Quiet location very close to the town center and 10 - 15 minutes walk to Hastings street. Lovely management, very clean rooms, elegant furnishing. The main bedroom and the living room had cooling/heating. Very pleasant stay on overall.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best views, of course. And there is a lift!

My wife and I stayed in a 2 bed apartment with a 10 month old baby for 3 weeks and had a brilliant stay. Quiet spot, hidden away from the immediate bustle of the main streets, but only short walks to the main parts of Noosa Heads which suited us perfectly. Beautiful 10 minute walk to Hastings street but as we had a hire car we chose to drive there most times (call us lazy!). Very clean, very spacious apartment, secure undercover parking, lift access to our building with was handy with a baby, well maintained gardens, spa is doubly heated (takes a little while to warm up), significantly good value for a long term stay. Stayed on 3rd floor with views of river, tree canopies and ocean. When an outside light bulb started flickering management fixed it immediately upon request. Would move there in a heartbeat.

We had a most relaxing long weekend staying here. The apartment was spacious and well appointed and the view across Laguna Bay and Noosa Sound from the kitchenb of this top floor apartment was really special.

Room Tip: Pick a top floor unit at the rear of the complex as you can see the view from inside the unit and do...
