I've stayed in Noosa Heads a few time but always on the main street. Unfortunately I'd forgotten how steep the hill is between Noosa Blue and Hastings Street. Some ads for this place says "it's just a 450 metre walk". They don't say that you have to be fit enough to climb the hill for 0 minutes on the way back to the hotel !
Noosa Blue has comfortable rooms, covering all the basics, including a galley kitchen complete with microwave and stove, dishwasher. There's a washing machine and clothes dryer in the bathroom. And a spa bath in the corner of your bedroom. Couple of things to note: make sure the vents to the spa are covered in water before you turn the spa on, or you get a fountain effect across the tiled bedroom floor; the spa simply turns on and off manually, there's no timer). Worryingly, the hotel's front desk didn't know how the spas worked. The smoke detector was hanging open and one light bulb of the three above my bed-head did not work.
The rooms have plenty of louvred doors and windows, so there's a lot of filtered light in the rooms. There was a single sofa and small TV. The sofa could have been opened out as bedding for two more people, though the rooms was suited to 2 adults not four.
The rooms seemed to be in pairs,w ith tropical greenery in between. Each appeared to have it's own garden and BBQ area at the back. As the resort is built on the side of a hill, my room was on the floor below reception and the pool.
The hotel has an oasis style pool and kids area, complete with water slide. Other than a steam room and gym (at cost) there were no other facilities.
The Ebb Bar and Cafe was opened only for breakfast, with a limited buffet (full breakfast A$24) which was nice enough, though your choice was limited.
Reception was open 7am-7pm Mon to Thursday. 7am to 8pm on Fri and Sat and 7.30 to 7pm Sundays. The reception area is self-contained, so anyone could walk in and out of the hotel without any security measures.
There is a pub across the road and Noosa Junction is down the other side of the hill.
I chose Noosa Blue because I only booked this holiday a day or two before I travelled and they had a $110 a night (for 5 night minimum) package. The hotel provided a comfortable base, with staff eager to please..
