Well priced clean modern and very close to the Main Street and very quite. You don't need to walk far at all. The manager bob is a lovely gentleman. So impressed we have booked a weeks holiday for 2016.

We have stayed in Mooloolaba many times usually down the other end of the village. Raffles was well priced and we were not disappointed. Very clean apartment on the 5th floor had great views.

We stayed 2 nights in November. The hotel is excellently appointed. We had a great room with a balcony and sea view, for which we paid a bit more. Mooloolaba is a great place to visit with long sandy beaches. Raffles isn't cheap, but it is good.

It is around the corner from the main road and so you are away from the busy tourist strip (it can get noisy late at night).
