We are a family of 4 and we stayed in a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment with courtyard. Bob was very helpful and left our room key and a welcome note in the lock box outside of reception and text me all of the information we needed to access it as we weren't going to make the 5pm reception closing...

Well managed apartments in a very good position. Close to everything you would need. 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). Our room was 504 and we had a nice view from the balcony to the sea despite over looking the... More

Great motel with comfy beds and very nice decor throughout, swimming pool was good too as it was heated. everything you could need in the rooms. I would stay there again any time I am down that way again. Security parking too so you don't have to worry about your car getting broken into etc.

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

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.
