“Top Pick for Noosaville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I was up at Noosaville on business and needed a base for 3 nights. The best part of this Motel is they have free unlimited WIFI, this is a huge plus for when you are sending large emails back and forward and I actually had good reception for once. The room was in a great location, easy to find, the view was awesome. The room was modern and spacious and you could tell it had been recently updated. Everything I needed was there. The only feedback I could give was the pillows were flat and old. I am staying again A+++

Thank-you for your great review regarding the motel. I'm glad you enjoyed the free unlimited WiFi. We are still the only accommodation house in Noosa to offer free & unlimited wireless internet. Thank-you for your feedback regarding the pillows, we will look into this.

I find Noosa Sun Motel value for money.

The apartment was spacious with a big living and dining area. Kitchen was a little small but well equiped with refrigerator, microwave, hot plate, cutlery and utensils. The aircon comes with both cooling and heating functions and the bed was comfortable.

Free WIFI was available!

After hours self check-in was a breeze and there was ample parking spaces within the compound. Opposite the motel is a park with a children's playground. Great if you have children with you. The location is quiet and it is about 10mins drive away from Sunshine Beach Road where food and some shopping are located.

There is 1 thing which I disliked. The design of the shower/toilet is less than ideal.

1) There was no ledge inside the shower to put your own shower foam, shampoo etc (though a dispenser with universal shower cum shampoo cum conditioner was provided). So there was no where to put your own necessary toiletries.

2) The shower screen comes with a door that opens out. Hence, after a shower and you open the door, water will drip all over the place. The floor mat given was a little too thick and the door will not open if you leave the mat on the floor directly at the opening.

3) The towel rack is too far away from the shower. Hence, after shower, you will have to step out and grab your towel to dry yourself. Water will drip all over the floor. Hence the floor is constantly wet. Not ideal if you have kids. And I have to constantly wipe the floor dry myself with the floor mat given.

Ok, let's end on a good note.

Did I mentioned that I was woken up in the morning by birds singing? =)

I would give a 3.5 star to the motel. If not for the shower problem, this place would easily be a 4.5 star.

Thank-you for staying with us and your great review. I was pleased to hear your comments about the self check-in machine. It's a wonderful tool for not only us but for our guest as you don't have to check-in at a set time. Please be aware that the shower door can be open both ways. I do however agree with your comments regarding the shower. This is something we are working on. Thanks again.

If you are on a tight budget, this motel is a hidden gem. Newly renovated and well designed/thought out rooms. We stayed on ground floor closest to road. Received a welcome SMS from Darren & Jackie the day before with a map on how to get there! Great location right opposite Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar and Chaplin Park with fantastic kids play equipment. Our two girls swam in the heated pool (which actually WAS beautifully heated) and played at park - didn't get bored which was a plus for us. Tea, coffee & milk provided. Kitchen adequate for our needs and well-designed with stone benchtop, fridge, microwave, portable cooktop, toaster, jug and plunger + plunger coffee! etc. It looked out onto garden. Free fast & unlimited Wi-fi so I was able to do some work while I was there while kids watched Pay TV. Comfy couch, comfy beds. Unit was spotless on arrival. Bathroom small but well designed and modern. Good shower. Extra bed in lounge was useful. The process of collecting and returning key via secure machine was fantastic as we arrived late and left early. Car parks narrow, but close to units. Well stocked, modern and clean laundry near the carpark - which included extra towels if you needed them. Only gripe is that a door on the bedroom would be a good addition, but the bedroom is around the corner and still semi-private.

I disagree with Goferit that this motel is just 'OK'. You'd be hard pressed to find another clean and modern unit in this location for the same price!!! We will definitely be back.

I think if you contact Contact Darren & Jackie you can get a cheaper rate.

Thank-you for your wonderful review and for staying with us once again. It was great to hear that the children enjoyed the heated pool and pay TV. The motel is situated in a great spot for families with the park opp and children's playground. Thanks for your great comments and for coming to our defense regarding comments made by " Goferit". Hope to see you again soon.

After reading good reviews on TA we booked into the Noosa sun motel. Further noting that it is located on the Noosa River we elected to pay extra for a “view room” expecting that we would have a view of the Noosa River. In fact the view is overlooking a canal off the river (see photo) & is certainly not worth paying extra for. It is a renovated motel room but the kitchenette is barely adequate. There is no dishwasher, inadequate lighting & a portable electric hot plate is not adequate to cook on. There is no door on the bedroom so privacy is comprised if you have others in the lounge. Location is good being a 5 minute walk to shops & restaurants in Noosaville. Bed is large & comfortable & free in room wifi. If you are looking for a motel room it is OK. If you are after an apartment for self catering you will be disappointed. Rooms are only serviced every 3 days if you have a longer stay.

Thank-you for staying with us and your review. We promote our View rooms as having a water view which they do as seen in your photo. No were do we promote our rooms as having a River View. The motel is located on a corner block. One block overlooks the river the other the canal. I found your comments strange. Your complaining about everything that is typical with a motel room . It sounds like you may have been expecting more of a self contained apartment. I would have thought the fact that the property is called Noosa Sun Motel would have been a good indication that we are providing motel style accommodation.

Lovely welcome from Jackie was really appreciated after a stressful journey. Stayed 3 nights at end March/beginning April 2014. Ideal location for travelling with small person (4y.o.) as right opposite childrens play park. Walkable to everything in Noosaville. Rooms large, heated pool was great. Will definitely be on (very) short list if ever in Noosa again - have recommended to friends and family.

Thank-you for your great review and for recommending us to your family and friends. Most of our guest find out about us via recommendations, as being a small motel we only have a small marketing budget. I'm glad that you and your 4 year old enjoyed the heated pool and the park children's playground opp. Thanks for staying with us.

Only stayed one night. Was comfortable and clean and met our needs.

Covered parking spaces very tight but manageable if you are careful. Tea, coffee, milk provided and a wall mounted DVD/TV. Heated pool - small but clean.

Good location directly opposite the yacht club, which had lovely meals, and the riverfront with beautiful setting, paths and BBQ's.

We booked through a third party website, but found out afterwards it would have been cheaper to have contgacted the motel directly for a cheaper rate.

Thank-you for staying with us and your review. We have to offer our prices on our website at the same rate that we offer on 3rd party websites. If you like and book via our Facebook page, however we will take $5.00 of the nightly tariff. Also we have a program that booking made directly get the best rooms, we are also more lenient with booking changes and or cancellations and we try harder to fulfill special request with direct bookings. Thanks again.

Stayed for a Saturday night and this motel is simply great value for money. The rooms are large and similar to a 1 bedroom apartment and immaculately clean. The bathroom is modern and again immaculately clean. Free unlimited WIFI caps off a great value package.

The location is right on the river and a short stroll to nearby shops.

While we had a unit fronting the road, it didn't bother us and the main bedroom is at the rear of the unit negating any noise at night

You get an impression of the great management of this place also with the little things they do, for example they texted us as soon as the room was available (I assume this was after cleaning) which was before midday.
Even though we didn't need it this time, it certainly is a great idea if you have ever travelled with young children who might need a nap.

We will certainly be staying here again.

Thank-you for your review. I will be sure to pass on your positive feedback regarding the standard of cleanliness to our housekeepers. I was glad to hear that you enjoyed the free unlimited wifi. We are the only accommodation house in Noosa to not only offer free but free unlimited wifi. I know this is an important thing as when I travel with the family I think we are currently up to 7 devices. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.
