“Away from it all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We stayed here for a couple of weeks recently and just loved it. The two bedroom units are modern and both bedrooms have en suites. Noosaville and Hastings street are minuets away, It is so tranquil that it had all the peace of being far away. You do need a car, especially for longer stays.
If your after a resort pool, it is not large and was used constantly by locals for swim school and,water aerobics. It also has midges (sand flys, they bite) in the sand next to the lounges.
If you are older like us, then the golf, Terrace Restaurant and walks were lovely. I do not recommend the breakfast. Very poor and expensive. The Units are excellent and with a full kitchen and many local eaterys await, so breakfast isn't a problem.
The onsite spa is to die for...................Simply the BEST

We were invited to celebrate a good friend's wedding at the Noosa Springs Resort. We stayed two nights and attended the ceremony and reception on site. We had a fantastic time. The staff were all incredibly attentive and looked after us brilliantly. The wine flowed generously, the food was of the highest calibre, and the musicians were skilled and entertained us all evening. We were very impressed with the evening and would recommend this resort to anyone either considering staying for a holiday or planning a wedding.

Just stayed four nights with four friends and played four days of golf. We had two upstairs rooms, which are light, airy and reasonably appointed
.
I would describe the service as friendly, obliging and not slick. If that style of service suits you, which it did for us, it works well.

Breakfast is an “ok” buffet, but again it does the job.

The golf course is a good challenging course, with enough interesting aspects to play a few times. If people are familiar with Coolum Golf course, then Noosa Springs is a little easier and therefore less memorable, but for average club golfer probably more enjoyable.

The only criticism would be we arrived a 1pm on the first day to play golf at 1:30, and there were no sandwiches.

Overall, I would recommend it to people who are golfers, we had four great days!

As a group of eight golfers we stayed and played and we had an outstanding time. The apartments are well appointed and the service was excellent. We were greeted with big welcoming smiles and made sure our needs were met. The golf course was in tip top condition and a great day was had by all. We all enjoyed the hospitality at the restaurant and the meals were of a high standard. Even non golfers are well catered for as they have a world class Spa. Would recommend this as a destination for golfers and and non golfers alike. Well done Noosa Springs.

Room Tip: Any room is okay as they are all quiet and nestled in the trees.

I have just spent a weekend at Noosa Springs Resort for a friends wedding and have left feeling relaxed, refreshed and did I say relaxed. We shared a 2 bedroom apartment with friends that was very spacious and comfortable set right in the bushland adjacent to the golf course. What had really made my weekend is the amazing hydromassage experience at the resort spa. This is a sensory experience like no other - just imagine an abundance of underwater jets that can massage every muscle of your body to your liking and at your own pace. I left feeling so relaxed all over and the staff made for a great experience from start to finish. Don't hold back on this one, it's too good.

My husband and I were booked into the Noosa Springs for a weeks golf holiday with another couple. We were originally allotted an upstairs unit, which we wanted, as we knew it would be lighter and warmer than a lower unit that would get less sun. We were disappointed on arrival to be given a lower unit and told that no upper units were available as they were full. There was some kind of function on over the weekend, but I would have thought people staying for 7 nights should have been given preference over those staying 2 or 3 nights. We weren't.

The unit, as feared, was dark, cold and damp. It was nicely furnished and well set out with plenty of space. But it was unfortunately filthy. There was a very large layer of dust over most things in the bedrooms, and the bathroom floors had not been cleaned around the edges, just in the middle. The clothes dryer did not work, the hair dryer in our bathroom had no heat and there were only 3 pillows per room for 2 people. The staff were quick to bring more. Also, one of the chairs in our lounge was broken, my husband got quite a surprise when he sat in it and the legs came off one side!

The breakfast buffet was another matter. On our first morning we suffered through the stone cold scrambled eggs and bacon, until on the second morning we were inspired to request fresh poached eggs and were cheerfully given them. We enjoyed those eggs every morning thereafter. The bacon was still cold though. The fruit and yoghurt selection is very good, lovely fresh fruit and a choice of toppings. The toast situation was quite perplexing. While the resort was full, with lots of people having breakfast every morning, the large commercial toaster was never turned on, only a small 4 slice toaster that took an unbelievable amount of time to make toast. There was queue for toast most mornings, many mornings the toast ran out, and one morning there was no bread at all!

I must say the staff were all willing and friendly, so I'm not sure where these lapses spring from. We found them all to be very pleasant in complying with any request we made, but we had to make so many.

We played several rounds of golf and found the pro shop and golfing part of the property to be excellent. The course was in good condition and everything seemed well run.

We also managed to have a spa while we were there and our spa experience was excellent. My husband and I each had a massage, both very good, then had a session in the flotation pool, which was an amazing experience. The whole spa has a wonderful ambiance, we were both very relaxed and felt pampered when we left. Unfortunately our traveling companions were not so lucky, they were unable to get appointments, so maybe there is a shortage of staff there?

The property could be excellent, it certainly has the facilities, with the pool, gym, spa, golf and spacious apartments, but needs to work on cleanliness, checking the room facilities to make sure they are all in working order, and upgrade the breakfast buffet with proper steam tables to keep it hot, get the commercial toaster going and lay in a better supply of bread!

Room Tip: Get an upstairs unit when traveling in colder months, otherwise you will freeze in the dark lower un...

Initial impact on arrival at the resort was great and our check-in was flawless. The resort is beautifully presented and landscaped. However our experience went somewhat downhill from then on. The room was cold and dark even though daytime temperatures approached 27⁰c. Breakfast (provided) was scarce with the bread basket being empty and remaining so even though we were there for at least 30 minutes. A few traces of tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, etc were left in the warmers and rapidly going cold. Again stocks were not refilled and it was only 8.30am. Breakfast the following day was an improvement but what was there was cold. Based on the standard of breakfast, we decided to avoid the restaurant for dinner. Their loss.
The golf course was magnificent but if you don't play golf - don't stay there. The hire clubs were a mismatch of models (and ladies & men’s) and not up to the prices charged. A complaint brought the "mirror" response - "I will look into it"! The resort offers excellent but pricey spa facilities, quite a good gym and an inviting swimming pool. However, expect a horde of schoolchildren, not staying in-house to invade the pool at 3.00pm. Definitely the time to retreat. Overall a disappointing experience.
