“Noosa - Breakfree French Quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

I know it is some time ago, but we went there in 2004 (please ignore "When did you travel? date" it would not let me go further back) and loved it. Excellent siting of accommodation, a short stroll to the beach and Hastings Street. Accommodation was ideal for the two of us. We went first week in September before the school holidays, ideal time to go.

When we arrived we asked to change our room to one that had a spa bath, this was no problem at all and the reception staff allowed us to view the room first.
Both rooms were clean and modern.
The staff were very helpful throughout our 4 days stay and the location at the end of Hastings street is great.
We found this very good value for money and would go back if in Noosa again.

We spent three nights at Breakfree French Quarter Resort over this month's long weekend. The location was great, right on Hastings St but the room was VERY average for the price we paid. There also seemed to be some construction in the resort and we found it very loud in the mornings. There was a strange kitchen in the living room (no table or coffee table) and the bathroom had a washing machine, dryer and tub, as well as a broom. The towels were thin and when we called down for fresh towels we were told it would be a two hour wait, or we could come and get them ourselves. There was also only one champagne glass (and three wine glasses), we spoke to another couple and they had similar issues with their set up. It rained the whole time we were there so we didn't use the pool but the area looked nice.

Room Tip: Ask if they have refurbished rooms, my parents stayed there a month or so before we did and it sound...

Thank you for your constructive feedback from your recent stay with us. It is a pity it was raining the whole time while here, we hope your next visit to Noosa Heads will have the sunshine to make for a more enjoyable experience.
We appreciate the comments regarding your room missing a champagne glass, and the fresh towel request. Although evening requests can be difficult for reception staff to deliver straight away (2 hours is obviously not acceptable), please be assured we will follow up with the staff regarding your feedback.
We are not aware of any construction onsite during your visit, possibly from a neighbouring property, but our apologies if this inconvenienced you in any way.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any further detailed information regarding your stay with us, as we would like to welcome you back to Breakfree French Quarter Resort for a more positive experience.
Kind Regards,
Paul Davis

The French Quarter is in a great location at the National Park end of Hastings Street. Just accross the road from the beautifully protected beach and close to the cafes and restaurants of Hastings Steet. Also great for a 'must do' walk along the coastline through the national park.
Stayed in a 2 bedroom deluxe unit. Note that the complex has a combunation of fully renovated units and original condition units. That is why you will get some reviews saying the unit is 'tired looking'. The new units are great, large flat screen TV, full kitchen with dishwasher and ovens, full sized fridge. There is also a laundry area with washing machine and dryer. Comfy lounge area for kicking back.
Decent sized balcony overlooks the great pool area with separate kiddies pool, two hot spas and sauna. The main bedroom is separated from the living area by a screen wall so it can be opened up or closed off for privacy.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe room for a newly renovated one. North quarter is closer to Hastings Street. It h...

This is a fab location on Hastings Street, close to beach and easy stroll to lots of wining and dining options. The room is well set up for a few days stay, and probably very good for families. However, nothing special in terms of decor etc. The pool looked inviting and very family friendly too, however with the beautiful beach so close by, I didn't try it! Very helpful staff on check-in.

we stayed here for 2 nights last weekend as i was up for a conference with my family.
first impressions of the room was it looked very tired for the rate we had paid per nite.
There was no oven in the kitchenette neither a dishwasher.on querying we were told that that for an extra $20 per nite we could upgrade to a modern room.there was no dvd player in the room which is almost a standard in quite a few apartments we have stayed in before.
on checking out the lift to the apartment stopped working.
The Plus point is that the staff at the reception are fantastic and you get 24hr check in and they allowed us to check out a bit later too so thank you for that.
i booked this hotel as it was breakfree and was on Hastings street but i think i paid the premium for the name and location as opposed to the quality of the apartment.
My personal observation is that i will look for value for money in what i book next time as opposed to brand recognition.
For $215 a night i expected good quality accomodation.

Room Tip: it just depends what your individual requirements are.

We stayed in a 1 bed apt for 3 nights and found it lovely. Located at the headland end of Hastings st meant we were close to everything but not right in the middle of the action. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Loved the spa bath! They probably need a new lift sometime soon, but not a huge issue.
