Terrible mould! Dont stay in this apartment . Booked through Wotif. Arrived to find what looked like a lovely furnished apartment. Until the smell! The main bedroom ceiling is covered with mould. Its disgusting. Add to a shocking experience was the smoke alarm that went off several times during the night from 2am, and the one pin (not 2) hairdryer... More

I booked my accommodation through Wotif and requested easy access due to a disability I have. When I arrived I was informed over the phone by the receptionist that my apartment was on the top floor which was three filights up from the undercover parking. I reminded her that i had requested easy access and all she could say was... More

The rooms and apartment were very clean and comfortable. They were spacious and well equipped for a long stay in the area. The area was quiet but close to the main area of town. We did not ever meet the proprietors but were still able to get answers to our questions.

On first impressions this is a wonderful apartment (we stayed in number 3) It is very big and well equipped with quite nice furniture in a good position close to the river.

Good convenient location in the heart of Noosaville 100 metres from the river frontage. The room smelt a little musty or damp but was well decked out with cooking and cleaning equipment. Good televisions in the lounge and main bedroom. The white fluro lighting however made the night time ambiance a little harsh. It was hard to get a good... More

“unknown as didn't end up staying. I didn't realise there was no reception to book into when I arrived. There is a phone on the wall in the undercover parking area to call reception and they let you know what room number you are and that they left the key under the mat”

“Try to have the main apartment at the first level with its own lawn and situated right next to the pool. It has two exits and the terrace side allows you to cross directly to the esplanade, it is amazing! Might cost a few extra bucks but it is worth every penny!!!”
