I recently stayed here with my partner & friends for New Years Eve celebrations. I booked it way in advance, but it was still expensive due to the holiday season. In saying that though, we essentially had 2 full rooms for $310 for one night. The two rooms were joined by a kitchen & it suited our needs perfectly as we were two couples holidaying together.
The rooms were beautifully presented, clean & spacious with their own bathrooms & balconies. In the main room (Room 205) there was also a lounge room & full kitchen & the adjacent room (Room 206) was another bedroom, small sitting area with bar fridge & bathroom. The bathrooms were nice & spacious too, but the 1/2 glass screen on the shower did not prevent water from going everywhere when you showered. The beds were very, very comfortable. Had an excellent night's sleep! The air con also worked really well to keep such a large space cool.
The staff were pleasant to deal with & even called me to say the room was ready early.
The location of the hotel was good, but it's not right on the water. Its situated back on the main street of Caloundra which makes it central to everything (beach/shops/restaurants). There was a view of the ocean from the balconies, but it was slight. Could have been cause we were only on the 2nd floor though.
The rooms came with free parking, so that was good.
Our only real disappointment came from discovering the bottle opener on top of the little bar fridge in the 2nd room the day after! We were hunting for it the night before in the kitchen & thought the room didn't have one!! There was one bottle of wine that didn't get drunk due to this!! It would be nice if the bottle opener was in the kitchen where it should be.
We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. Very close to the rooms we had.
All in all, I would definitely return to OVR when visiting Caloundra again.
