“Just Don't”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and deeply regretted it. The room we stayed in had over 20 different squashed insects on the walls and ceiling and mold on the ceiling. We were disgusted at the sight of large cream-colored marks on the bed sheets!

To make matters worse there were over 15 mosquitoes in our room because the woman who 'ran' the place would leave the doors, and screens, wide open all night long and all day letting just about every insect imaginable in. We arrived to them wide open. You had to always watch to make sure none would land... It was worse at night.

After shutting everything up, including the main door into our apartment building (which, I believe required a key to open, if I'm not mistaken) we awoke day after day to the door magically left wide open. We were the only ones staying in this one-upstairs, one-downstairs building. Why would the management continually do this, when we obviously didn't like it?

Just when you thought you could at least get some sleep in this hell hole, a large tree resting against the apartment building scrapes and scratches against a window and building in the wind. I truly mean the tree was propped up by the building, I'm not talking about a few little branches. It was a bloody pine tree.

When my husband and I had finally had enough we politely let the 'management' know how terrible our stay was. We were surprisingly answered with, "Yeah, the rooms are pretty [--], huh?".

This from the woman who was the one responsible for all the 'cleaning' and care taking of this establishment. For god sake, she even LIVED THERE JUST IN BACK OF RECEPTION! I suppose she was too busy doing her own laundry to bother getting someone to clean ours.

The motel we convenient for us as we had friends living a short walk from the motel. Parking was an adventure and we were only aware of the interesting method of entry to the hotel due to local knowledge. The rooms were nothing special but for the price we didn't really expect much.

upon arrival, in the low of the low season, the receptionist/owner, was as miserable as sin, as if I was disturbing her, no attempt to welcome, or even exchange basis pleasantries, no attempt to explain the complex route to get to the room, upon which, the air con did not work ( middle of winter, needed heat, ) the fuse boxes were switched off, the bedroom and bathroom stank..... tiny tv, horrendous internet charges at 256k dial up..... can it get worse..... it can... every time you phone reception the dragon cannot even say good morning... and just slams the phone down, at the end of every call..., needed to use the hob for heating.. told no chance of cleaning as I had booked for a week, even if a offered to pay..... yet day before leaving the dragon called and demanded I was out before 10am, otherwise she would charge me per hour overstay.... ( during which, I had no proper TV, aircon, and heating, let alone cleaning, ) dont worry i was out by 8!!... to be fair relatively good location for noosa junction, but very complex to drive in and out of....no security and an owner who hates guests.... be warned.... ps the shower only gives 4 mins of hot water..

I have been here twice as a solo get away in Winter. The price is very reasonable. It is opposite the National Park Entrance for great walks and there is a bus stop just metres away. The spa is great and there is lots of room to relax in the unit and in the grounds. The staff were helpful and friendly.

There were two things we found good about this motel, first was the spa pool looked very inviting and clean, the bbq was the cleanest thing about the whole motel.
Reception was polite but not too helpful, car park was good but the lights only came on when the car came and left not when you walk down the stairs into park.( not to good for woman)
The room smelt musty and damp, dust was hanging off ceiling fans, cob webs behind sofa bed and sliding doors, stove elements were all rusted and very dated,
There was also no room service, so had to use wet towels the second day.
As my wife has been a cleaner in motels for many years it was a big surprise to see a motel room in this state.
Had we not paid in advance we would have gone elsewhere.

Reviewed 11 January 2010

Stayed in Jan 2010 paid around $130 a night cos it was peak season, only stayed here as its the only cheap place that doesnt have minimum nights in Noosa. It is not worth the price that i paid - the rooms are spacious but they are old and cheap. The location is Ok if you have a car but not if you are on foot. The main thing I was not happy abut was the lady reception - she was very unhelpful and not friendly at all. Wireless internet is also very expensive. I was impressed with the the amount of TV channels and parking was pretty good. I think there are much better places to stay in Noosa with better locations but if only there for a short time in peak season then you do not have much choice.

A basic motel with a decent resort surrounding.

Rooms have good cooking / kitchen area which would be great for a family on a budget summer holiday. Pool / spa untested due to wether but would be very tempting in the summer.

Linen seemed a little damp but then it was the very quiet time for them.

Easy access to Noosa Junction for food etc and with the heads only 10 mins away not a bad base to enjoy the area from.
