Best location, close to beach, restaurants, esplanade, Coles. A short drive to Sunshine Plaza and airport, Eumundi Markets and Australia Zoo. Raffles apartments are well set out and very comfortable. Bbq and pool area is well set up, secure parking and secure entry to the building. Raffles Mooloolaba will be our first choice next visit.

Excellent presentation, very comfortable, 2 air conditioners and TVs, kitchen great. Love 2nd floor and stay in same unit each time. Stay as couple regularly also with adult children on occasion and still very comfortable. Love the location, short walk to everything.

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. Close to shops which is very handy if you have kids and like to cook in occasionally. Our host Bob was a most accomodating gentleman who... More

Hi Marshall Many thanks for your compliments. I am pleased that you enjoyed your first experience at Raffles. Unfortunately, our excellent locality does come with some unwelcomed noise at times. I hope that Raffles will again be your choice for accommodation should you return to this lovely part of the Sunshine Coast. Regards Bob James Resident Manager More

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.
