6th Floor, ocean view .. amazing. Nice clean apartment. Raffles is handy to all the Cafes, Coles Supermarket right across the road, as well as a pharmacy and newsagent. It is also a stones throw to the Mooloolaba Surf Club and a 2 minute walk to the beach. We were a late check in but our key and instructions for... More

Perfect location, one street back from the water, these great apartments catch the ocean breeze, just on the edge of the Moolooba action. Nearby are plenty of restaurants, and supermarkets. Apartments are clean, well presented.

Hi taycon0 Interestingly, neither myself nor my three cleaners and the next incoming guests was able to detect any bad odour in your first apartment. Common policy for the majority of self contained apartments is that a mid stay service clean only applies if the booking is longer than seven nights. As the balance of your booking in the replacement... More

There is also some great coffee spots within 500m. Cafe104, and the Healthy Juice/ Cafe. The apartments were clean on arrival , the 2 bed room spa apartment has a little... More

Hi pentacles22 Many thanks for posting a review of your experience at Raffles Mooloolaba. I'm pleased to learn that the apartment and facilities met your expectations. I agree that Lot104, a minutes walk from Raffles, serves the best coffee in Mooloolaba. Hopefully, we will again be your choice for accommodation should you return for next years 70.3 ironman.

Had a lovely stay at Raffles, well fitted out, great views and very relaxed vibe. Bob at reception was extremely helpful and welcoming. We stayed 4 nights and found it was not long enough. Dinner at Surf Club was enjoyable and great with kids. We will be back.
