“great motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

We only stayed one night but it was a great stay. We had one king bed and one double seperated by the bathroom. Great for 2 couples or 2 guys as you were not sleeping right next to the other bed. My daughter enjoyed the lovely heated pool even though it was june.Hotel looks out to the noosa river and grassed area with bbqs and kids play area directly opposite the motel. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and one directly opposite with a fish and chip takeaway bar with great food.Grounds are well kept.

Thanks for your recent comments regarding your stay at Noosa Sun Motel. I am glad you found the grounds well kept. We have just recently had the entire motel landscaped. All the new plants are looking better everyday. Your spot on about the Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Takeaway opp the Motel. The food there is excelent. It's also a great place to grab a morning coffee.

We stayed for 13 days in unit 3, on the ground floor unit. It was very basic but clean and tidy. We needed a unit with easy access to shower and doors without sills designed to trip older folk with poor balance and coordination, and this unit served our purpose. Tariif was about right for the amenities. Good location.

Only one huge pot for cooking on the hot plates and we weren’t sure if the plastic bowls were microwave safe, So we ate out mostly.

Darren and Jackie were friendly and obliging hosts. Cheerfully supplied extra sheets after a nose bleed and replaced a dodgy tin opener. Weekly servicing good.

Took a while to get my mac running on the free web access. Got in by going to System preferences > network. Then entered “automatic” location, clicked “Assist me” and it led me in.

Thank-you for your recent comments regarding your stay at Noosa Sun Motel. I can assure you all the plastic bowles in our rooms are microwave safe. My appologies that you experienced some issues with the WiFi. I checked it from our end and spoke to 5 other guest and they were not having any issues at all. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.

Noosa Sun Motel is a great place to stay in such an idyllic setting. Noosaville is beautiful and the motel is a very short walk from the restaurants and shops that look over the river.
The motel room was very spacious and clean and we felt very relaxed here. There is a comfortable king sized bed, kitchenette, TV and use of the pool.
Darren was very helpful. He even booked us a trip to Australia Zoo.
The main township is Noosa this a bus ride away but we had bus passes so it was very easy to get to Noosa shops and the main beach. The only downside is the buses do not run late into the evening so we had to get a taxi, not cheap!

I can highly recommend the Noosa Sun apartments - We were upgraded on arrival and enjoyed our 5 nights which were very reasonably priced. Rooms were larger than average, with excellent facilities and we found the managers very friendly and helpful. The kitchen and dining table were larger than we'd expected, parking was convenient and we enjoyed a relaxing view over the park beside Noosa river. The hotel is in a convenient spot, near many excellent restaurants and was quiet at night. What a treat!

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs, which has a view over the river.

The unit was Very Clean, light and Bright.
The service was excellent, we only stayed 2 days but would love to have stayed more.
The layout was very comfortable, The towels fluffy, the linen fresh smelling, the unit fresh smelling.
The view from the front windows was excellent.
Everywhere around the Motel was clean and you can see that a lot of work is done to keep it that way.
The heated pool was very inviting, also sparkling clean. It was a pity it was middle of winter.
I would recommend this motel to anyone. I have stayed in 5 star resorts that dont have this standard. 5 star with a lower star price. WONDERFUL.

Room Tip: Ring and ask.

Superb location on the banks of the tranquil and beautiful Noosa River. Wonderful restaurants and cafes are literally seconds away.

Terrific walks by the river for those wanting to keep fit.

Marvelous hosts as they simply go out of their way to make the guests feel so at home, always smiling and hospitable. Pricing is great value..
Rooms are incredibly well maintained and serviced. The rooms are self contained and everything is catered and planned for. Delightful bedrooms ensure a cosy nights sleep..
The pleasant water views provide a lovely, peaceful and relaxing mode.

Simply put, there is absolutely no need to look anywhere else as Sun Motel provides for the perfect holiday. .
Repeat holiday visits To Noosa Sun Motel is assured.

We stayed for 4 nights. Clean rooms and bathroom, spacious apartment. (We got a free upgrade) The hotel is situated at the street next to the shore, there is some traffic in the morning, but there was just minimal noise-disturbance. Great bed, actually a real queen bed and not the twins which are normally put together in these kind of apartments. Basic kitchen equipment with microwave and cooking plate. Free WiFi and decent flat screen TV with DVD player. Warmed outside pool which was great.
There are heaps of restaurants and coffees just 5-10 min walk away. We went and ate breakfast and dinner at a different place every day. There is a convenient ferry just outside the Motel going to Noosa Heads. It is worth the trip! The staff was very friendly and helpful always open for a chat or some advice about what to do. Got some very good advices about where to eat.

Thank-you for your kind words regarding your stay at Noosa Sun Motel. It's deeply satisfying that you were happy to hear about the cleanliness of the room. I have also passed this on to my housekeepers and it made her day. I am also glad that you were happy with the free wifi. We are the only motel in Noosa to offer this and it has proven very popular. Once again thanks for your comments and we hope to see you again someday.
