When looking for the best deal..remember to contact the resort directly as you may be able to secure an even better deal. We changed from a single to a double room and the staff could not do more to help us even though it was at the last minute. Staff are great! view was good, position was perfect. We were... More

We stayed here on a 3 night package in a studio room. This is the budget accommodation and we knew exactly what we were getting for the money we paid. It is possible to pay more and get a bigger unit in the high rise with water views off the balcony. Our unit had a separate bedroom with a modern... More

There is little to fault about The Moorings. We had the most wonderful 5 nights there and are planning to return in July to escape at least a couple of weeks of winter in NZ. My husband and I stayed in unit 408. This is a very spacious 2 bedroom unit facing the most beautiful view over the Pumice Stone... More

Loved our apartment on the 7th floor. Stunning views that change with the tide. I could never get tired of just staring out the window. Kids loved the pool. Right across the road from the beach. Great little cafe onsite. We only had 3 nights , a week would've been better. We went to Australia zoo and the markets on... More

My husband and I recently went for a three night stay at Golden Beach. After one night at our accommodation elsewhere, we decided we couldn't stay there any longer and dropped in to The Moorings to see if they had a nice room available. We were greeted by a lovely gentleman (unfortunately I did not get his name) who was... More

This Resort is right on the water. The views are wonderful with many different birds to be seen and photographed, also there are large ships on there way into and coming out of the Brisbane Harbour. Views to Caloundra across the passage are great especially at night. Shops are only 75m away with a great selection of cafes and restaurants,... More

The Moorings is a great place to stay and enjoy a holiday on the idyllic Sunshine Coast of Australia. The staff are friendly and efficient, always keen to assist with any requirements. It has been a pleasure to stay at the Moorings.

We've just come home after our 3rd stay at the Moorings, and this time we were lucky to have a long weekend to rest and unwind. We are so happy with the quality of our unit, and we have found Stan and Elizabeth to be fantastic hosts who always make us feel very welcome. We have booked again for next... More

We actually booked Unit 105 at the Moorings Beach Resort through Accom. Caloundra. Although linen is not supplied with the unit booking you are able to hire it at a reasonable price. In comparison to the charges you pay if you book through the resort itself what we paid was excellent. The unit is a large ground floor 3 bedroom,... More

Thank you for you lovely review. Just please note that UNIT 105 is not managed by us and therefore linen etc is not supplied by them. ALL our other units are managed on-site and are fully self contained with linen. Thanks More
