“Great spot to stay in Noosa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We spent the weekend in Noosa for the food and wine festival.
We loved our stay at Noosa blue as it was very convenient to everything and affordable.
The rooms and communal areas were clean and the staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The roof top spa area gives great views over the beautiful surrounds.
The pool area is a great place to enjoy the fine weather that Noosa has to offer before heading down to the beach. We look forward to going back next year!

Pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Noosa Food and Wine Festival is a world class event and a great time to visit us. We hosted some of the world-class chefs and media as well so you were in good company. We are in the perfect location for all the festivals, with a quick walk down the hill and a slower walk home. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Booked through Accom Noosa who were absolutely shocking to deal with. Room was incredibly dirty inside and out. We found hairs in bed and fold out couch, dusty surfaces everywhere, overfrosted freezer, rust and mould in various places. We have a room with a roof terrace and spa which was very dirty also with fish scales across all foor surfaces, broken furniture, very dirty and rusty bbq facilities and dirty spa bath. Had to argue with Noosa Accom to come and clean the room the next day (had to sleep one night in the filth) and the cleaner appeared to be drunk when she turned up. Complained again, requesting a refund for the night we had to stay in dirty room and were refused any compensation because they had 'cleaned the room at our request.' At almost $300 per night it was definitely NOT worth it!!!

As the manager of Noosa Blue Resort I was disappointed to read your review of your stay back in December 2012.
When we took over the resort in October a couple of the rooms, including your room, were managed by a third party and not under our control.

With the support of our owners we have now pulled those units back under our own management and renovated them. I am happy to report that the feedback from guests has improved out of sight. Next time you are up this way I do hope we can change your mind about Noosa Blue Resort.

I have read some revues about this place and was in two minds about booking it. We booked a penthouse and it was fairly cheap. I wasn't too impressed with the penthouse we received. It was located in amoungst other units that were either side and towering over the rooftop spa area.
The room was very stuffy and had that wet carpet musky smell that lingered for a few days.
The place wasn't very clean either. There were food scraps on the dining table. Lounge had some stains on it. Fridge was warm. Cobwebs evident around some windows.
The breakfast service every day seemed slow. Food was good though.
Staff here were helpful especially the manager on duty.

Room Tip: Ask for a penthouse on levels 3 or 4 and with a view.

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your room allocation.
We have lots of different rooms, each with its unique features. We do try to ensure that the room meets your expectations and on this occasion it seems we could have done better. We have processes in place to ensure that each and every room is checked prior to check-in and I am monitoring this regularly to ensure this does not happen again.
In closing I am so glad that you found our staff helpful and that the food met your expectations. We look forward to having you come and stay with us again soon.

5 star stay for an affordable price. We recently had a great 4 night stay. The staff were very friendly including the resort manager who was happy to chat and the chef who was fantastic looking after us each day. Our stay included breakfast from a great selection menu including a barrista made coffee. We noticed the whole resort was undergoing an upgrade to its facilites and room. Our room had recently undergone an upgrade including the addition of a large spa in the bedroom (which we enjoyed on every night of our stay). The room also contained a large Samsung LED TV (we watched our HD movies on USB) and the general amenities and cleanliness of our room was top rate. The heated pool was large and also contained a heated spa at one end. The only problem with our stay was that it was not long enough. We wished we had more time to enjoy this gem of a resort. It is centrally located to both Hastings St and Sunshine Beach Rd (Shops and Restaurants). The only caveat is that room service is not part of the stay if the booking is less that 5 days. This means that towels need to be washed and dried using the inroom provided washer and dryer. Not really a big deal though. Highly recommended. We will be back.

I would highly recommend noosa blue as a place to stay, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was only a short walk to Hastings street - less than 10 minutes. My boyfriend and I stayed in a premium penthouse with an amazing view and rooftop jacquizie BBQ area. The staff were very helpful once again and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Amazing spot . Will definitely be returning soon.

Fantastic place to enjoy a Noosa experience, the premium penthouse was great and i would recommend rooms 407 & 408 for privacy. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming (inc. gardeners & painters on-site) and a massive wrap to Chris and Raff in the cafe, breakfast and coffees were great and i can guarantee the only place you will find $5 Coronas and $10 cocktails in Noosa is at there poolside party which was great fun also.

Well done to everyone
Mark & Nikki.
