I stayed here with my family & like every hotel had its pros & cons. Pros: quick & easy payment & sign in, walking distance to the beach & shops, friendly staff. Spacious rooms. Cons: although were on the river view theres trees in the way so we just see trees & the road, the room was not cleaned very... More

The kitchen had. Everything we needed and the place was spotless. It was an easy check in with the gentleman at reception being very... More

The location is great. A short walk away from the main strip on a quiet cul-de-sac next to the river. That is where it ends the room was outdated and had a very unpleasant smell of urine. Freezer on the fridge was totally frosted over. Furniture was old and sagging. With an update it would be a good stay but... More

The apartments are close to all amenities but sadly they are not cleaned properly and the management need to improve this because I would rate this as a 2* hotel at present and I would not want to stay there in the future.

I spent two nights in this hotel and found it to be filthy dirty with mould in some places, the worst hotel that I have stayed in Australia I won't be returning here and won't reccomend anyone of my friends to its a disgusting place.

The apartment was a short walk to the beach and restaurants. The unit provided the basic appliances. There was a bathroom/laundry (together) which was not suitable for elderly or disabled, as the shower/bath was difficult to get into with a large step (slippery when wet) to step up into. There is a handrail, however when stepping out of shower, this... More

We have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, close to everything but away from any noise. The price has always been very reasonable. Would certainly recommend.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Excellsior at Mooloolaba and it was the best weekend. The first thing we noticed was the quick and easy check in, even though we arrived after 6pm. We were given an upgrade to a totally refurbished 1 bedroom apartment for free and we were not disappointed as the place was spotless... More

We booked this apartment at the last minute and we were not disappointed. It was spacious and clean with a view to die for. It was within walking distance to Mooloolaba cafes and shops. We would definitely stay here again.
