“Good location. Average attention to detail”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

On the beach is in a terrific location and is indeed very close to the beach. We booked a corner apartment and got exactly that. Although we mentioned it was our honeymoon no upgrade or extras were forthcoming. This was in contrast to our prior accommodation who, unprompted and without hesitation upgraded us.
The room was nice and again as advertised but attention to detail was not there. One round bar of soap for two hand basins and a shower? No shower gel for the spa requesting a charge for laundry power and WiFi, accidentally leaving a different room checkout notice under our door took the shine off a generally well kept and boutique venue. W expected a little better. Hopefully our experience was just an anomaly in the low season.

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and it proved to be a fantastic choice. We got a room upgrade to the open penthouse which was amazing. Everything was very clean and tidy and the spa bath above was great. The swimming pool is good as it is heated and nice and deep. Would recommend for couples as it is a nice romantic location.

We stayed in a penthouse apartment that had stunning ocean views from both floors. The whole place is really fresh and immaculately clean. The rooftop area was a real suntrap, with comfortable sun loungers and that view to die for. There is also a balcony with table and chairs on the floor below. Rooms are a good size and include bedroom plus a lounge and kitchen area. The location could not be better. Beach is just a few steps to the front of the apartment and behind you have Hastings Street with all its lovely restaurants and shops. We dined at a restaurant called Noosa Beach House, which had opened 2 days before and it was superb. During the day I recommend a walk along the coastal path through Noosa National Park. The picture postcard views are endless. We will come back here again and again.....

The location is excellent and view awesome - the pool is very good.

The accommodation is small and not comfortable, somewhat "tired" and "shabby". The all glass shower is awkwardly positioned between the kitchen and the bed. There is no bathroom - just an area off the bedroom. The toilet room is more like a wardrobe. This is effectively one room with - bed, shower, loo, kitchen and sofa.

I would not recommend this place or stay again.

Thank you for your feedback.

The room type you have described is one of our open plan rooms.
The glass shower in the middle of the room is a feature of this room type and is very popular with our guests as you will read in may of our reviews.

As for the size they are designed for 2 people they are comfortable and certainly not shabby.
Our housekeeping staff are constantly being commended on the cleanliness of our property.

As you have commented on your review that you would not stay with us again we hope you find accommodation that you will be happy with for your future holidays.

Kind Regards
Management

Hard to find a better location in Noosa! If you don't stay on Hastings Street then you really are missing out! These apartments are gorgeous, right in the heart of town, beachfront and absolutely gorgeous! It was a real treat to stay here, my husband and I didn't want to leave. Of course the price is high but what do you expect when everything is this perfect! We were spoilt for choice by fantastic restaurants and boutique shops up and down the road. No kids on the premises was the part we loved the best! Make sure you grab an ice cream from Massimos Gelateria while you are in Noosa!

We stayed in a one bedroom open plan penthouse for 3 nights in March 2013. The penthouse has a terrace off the main lounge, with an additional rooftop patio, complete with fridge and sink, plus a spa tub.

The room is well laid out, with a king size bed, ensuite with separate shower, fully equipped kitchen and lounge area. The room was very clean and the kitchen dishes were in really good shape. The bathroom had good lighting and ample storage and vanity space for two toiletry bags. The room included robes, which was a nice touch. There is a heated swimming pool, sauna and spa area, with direct access to the beachfront boardwalk. The main Noosa beach is about a 3 minute walk along the boardwalk. The gym is basic but adequate, with one treadmill, one bike and some free weights.

The location of the hotel can’t be beat. The hotel entrance is off of Hastings Street, with all the restaurants and cafes. The rooms face the beach, so they are nice and quiet. We didn’t hear any traffic noise or “party” noise, at all. There are a number of restaurants within a 5 minute walk and we even walked to Ricky’s in Quamby Place in about 30 minutes.

There is room for improvement here. The sauna isn’t sealed properly and we couldn’t get it steamy. The spa tub control is a little fussy and only worked sporadically, and the water in the spa tub is the same as that of the pool, rather than warmer as one would expect. Coming in from the ocean the water felt really warm, but it wouldn’t feel quite so nice if all you wanted was a warm spa at the end of the day.

Regardless of the few weaknesses, this is a great place to stay. The price reflects the location, but it really can’t be beat for a beachfront stay right in the heart of Noosa.

Absolute beach frontage beautiful great position we stayed in room 30 with spa on rooftop. Great restaurants everything so close in walking distance. Bistro C, Seasons and Aromas across the road. Staff could be a bit friendlier, sorry girl with long blondish curly hair not pleasant at all. It was all too much effort for her and the money we paid to stay here we expect much more in that regard. We had our special wedding anniversary and it fantastic. Noosa overall is very geard to tourism very very friendly.
