“Large apts with room to move about on Hasting St”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Stayed 5 nights while it rained heavily for 4 days. Thank goodness we were in an apt rather than a hotel room elsewhere. Thank you for the free movies. So convenient to cafes, bakeries, restaurants and beach.

Stayed with teenaged kids towards the end of the school holidays. Lots of families with very young kids there. Don't expected a romantic stay at this time of the year.

We booked a 2 bedroom standard apartment on wotif.com for a great price. The location was brilliant. The staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated and had a leafy outlook. All in all, we found it to be very comfortable and pleasant. It should be noted that we didn't explore the facilities of the hotel like the pool so I can't pass judgement on these- we took advantage of the location instead and made the most of the beach and Hastings street.

This place would be relatively expensive and maybe not very good value for money if you were a solo traveller or a couple, however we went with a group of friends and between us, the rooms were a reasonable rate. They were a bit run-down in places, but clean and comfortable. The room we had was two bedrooms with a queen and two singles, plus a double sofa bed. There was a small kitchen which was very useable - even a dishwasher! Staff were friendly but service was not great (repeatedly asking for extra bed to be made up, promises it had been, then finally having to go downstairs to reception at 11 at night to collect extra sheets etc). Location is unbeatable right on Hastings street, can walk everywhere.

I was a little worried about my stay at breakfree French quarter after I read some pretty negative reviews, but I had a great holiday staying here. The location is fantastic, right near the national park entry and a 50m stroll to the beach. The room I stayed in was the deluxe 1 bedroom and we were on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool. It was peak season but I didn't think the pool area was noisy unlike some other reviews I read. The outlook from the balcony was lovely and use of undercover parking outside checkout time was wonderful. Definitely will be back

When I read the trip advisor reviews and then was told after the booking that they were going to be renovating when I was staying there I nearly did not stay. It was an excellent position in Noosa right on the main drag.. near to the tourist information. Free wifi at local cafe - I was very surprised as I was expecting a not well maintained resort and complex from the feedback. I am glad I did not listen my apartment was beautiful, it came with its own washing machine and tumble drier, The staff could not have been more helpful. The furnishings were in excellent condition and the pool was beautiful. I really enjoyed my stay there and would and have recommended it to friends in Australia.

Rates itself as a four star resort although apart from having a pool
I think to call it a resort is pushing it ! There is no restaurant or bar etc.. And there is very limited area around the pool. I stayed here with my daughter, We had what was classified a '1 bedroom apartment' which was really no more than a room with the bed behind sliding louvre doors ! The kitchen area allowed for not much more than boiling a kettle! We found our room to be tired although i did read they were refurbishing and looking through the windows into other rooms we do seem to be unfortunate in what we were allocated. Having said that the only real difference was that furnishing had been updated (we had no flat screen tv , couch etc old and tired). Bathroom is also the laundry and was 'nasty' - you had to climb up into the shower which would not suit everyone !
Some of the staff on reception were unhelpful and when you spoke with them they gave you the impression that you were an inconvenience.
I would not stay here again nor recommend to anyone.

I stayed here with a couple of friends and several of our teenagers who are into surfing for a mid winter break. What a great place so handy to the beach and while the boys were out surfing, the girls always had something to do like go for a walk through the National Park (so handy) then coffee and a bit of shopping. There are also great restaurants to eat out if you feel like it. But we made use of the kitchen facilities in the apartment to save on the cost of eating out all the time. Although most of the boutiques charge top level prices there were a few bargins to be had in the sales if you looked hard enough. For a change of scenery there's always the Eumundi markets. Communal barbeque facilities would have been good by the pool although something I thought was lacking. All round a good experience and would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Not somewhere facing Hastings Street as can be too noisy.
