Our apartment was to the rear of the building, was quiet and very good. The kitchen utensils, crockery, glasses and appliances all excellent. A washing machine and drier also excellent. No problems with the layout, comfort or ambience of the apartment. Parking below the building with a lift to all floors. Raffles is close to all of the waterfront restaurants... More

Hi John Many thanks for your comprehensive review of your time at Raffles Mooloolaba. Your comments are very much appreciated. Unfortunately, because of the apartment entry doors being fire doors we are unable to change the automatic closures. Where the design allows I have installed magnetic door holders in a number of apartments. I can assure you that the rubbish... More

We have stayed at Raffles on four occasions over recent years. Each time we have enjoyed the facilities, including spacious apartments and the swimming pool. Convenient car parking on site and being close to Mooloolaba's attractions make Raffles a logical choice for our family.
