“Good value excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Regular visitors to Noosa but never stayed here before . Was tempted by great price rooms- booked two rooms- one modernized - one not. $30 per night difference- bth rooms same layout but better decor, sofa and appliances in modernized room. Perfect location for Hastings and the beach. Not a luxury hotel but good value for price. Would stay again.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family

Hi Janeymcp,

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on your recent stay. As you mention we have 2 x room categories available, a 'Standard' and a 'Deluxe' with the only difference being that the 'Deluxe' apartments have been renovated in recent years where as the 'Standard' apartments have not. The 'deluxe' apartments are definetly a more popular choice with our customers, offering a nice modern room, in a great location at a great price. We are working with our owners to continue to refurbish our 'standard' apartments this year and hope to have a few more 'deluxe' apartments to offer soon.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards
Matthew Knight

Husband and I stayed at the Mantra French Quarter, Noosa for 3 nights commencing Saturday 9th November. Check-in was good with a very helpful receptionist with whom we arranged an early morning call for the next morning as we were doing a Fraser Island day tour. She actually rang us with this the next day and I was surprised to hear a human voice and not a machine. One receptionist was a bit off-hand to us but the second time we had dealings with her she had mellowed; probably had had a bad day. Must remember to take note of people’s names when thinking about reviews. Most of the staff we had dealings with were helpful. Arranged a shuttle bus for our journey to Brisbane Airport.

We stayed in a ground floor (No. 122) standard apartment ie not a refurbished one. We were very pleased with the apartment as I was dubious after reading some reports about the state of this type of accommodation. Everything was clean and had all we needed for a 3 night stay. Great to have a washing machine and tumble dryer although it was a bit strange that it was in the bathroom area but this was no problem. There was a bath with shower overhead. The only problem with this was that because I am quite small and this unit had a very high side to it I did find it a bit difficult to get into.

Pool area is very nice although we didn’t have time to use it.

The apartments are very well situated for everything; beach, shops and National Park.

Noosa itself is a lovely place and I really wished when I was planning our Australia trip that I had factored in a couple of more days stay there.

We visited two good restaurants. The first being Laguna Jack’s having “Jack’s Catch of the Day” and the second the La Vida Restaurant where we had the lamb shanks which were gorgeous.

As stated above we did a Fraser Island tour with Adventure Tours. Rob was our guide who was very informative but without being too over the top. God luck Rob with your future plans.

If we were very visiting Noosa again we would certainly have no hesitation in staying at the Mantra.

Hi Ban49,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Mantra French Quarter in November 2013. As you mention our front desk staff are very helpful and more than happy to arrange a transfer or tour for you and have this charged to y our unit account.
It is also good to hear that you enjoyed the standard 1 bedroom apartment #122. This apartment is in a great location on ground floor near the pool and is often requested. Most rooms have a shower over a spa bath and this can be a bit of step into them. We have installed grab rails in most apartments to assist with this and will be scheduling more as we come into a quieter period.
As you say, Noosa is a beautiful part of Australia and we are all very privaliged to call ourselves residents here. With so many beautiful attractions and great restaurants who would want to travel anywhere else?
Thank you again for your review and we hope you can find more time to return to beautiful Noosa and Mantra French Quarter Resort.

Kind regards

Great location-right on Hastings St! Clean spacious rooms with nice balconies. Awesome pool that's great for kids! The staff were also very friendly and helpful, we arrived early and got into our room at 11am, we didn't get a late checkout but got given a key so we could still use the undercover parking and pool for the rest of the day. We really enjoyed it and will be back!

Hi Belgray,

Thank you for your kind review of Mantra French Quarter. We often recieve positive feedback on our great location, right on Hastings st and also ourclean, spacious rooms and balconies. I am glad you also found our staff to be freindly and helpful as being 'Friendly' and 'Pssionate' are part of our core values at Mantra. It is unfortunate we were unable to offer you a let check out as we needed to get the room prepared for another guest however it is good to hear you found the use of a common key to access the facilties until you had to departed a plus. This is something we offer all our guests who may not be departing the area by 10am.

Once again thank you Belgray and we hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

The location is Perfect - pool is great - only thing that could have been improved is having a room service mid week with sand on the floor and then in the beds this got a bit much by the end of the week - although didn't have an ocean
View the view of the pool was lovely - and 2 spas.

Hi RobynSA,

Thank you for recent review of Mantra French Quarter. We are very fortunate to have a great location right on famous Hastings st with shopping, dining and beaches only a walk away. If a booking is for 8 nights or more we do a service in the middle of the stay however for anything shorter we are unserviced. That said, we can arrange extra servicing for you at any time for a small fee.
Although we are so close to the beach we unfortunately do not boast Ocean views however I am happy to hear you enjoyed the view of the central pool area.

Once again thank you Robyn and we hope to welcome you back to Mantra French Quarter some time soon.

Kind regards

Just spent two nights here. We requested a quiet apartment & got great one on the 3rd floor. Only one adjoining apartment & we never heard our neighbours. Apartment was very clean though a little dated but we did get a great deal for the two bedroom so didn't matter at all. Reception service was excellent; very friendly & professional so a big Thank You to the manager & staff for your service. Mantra is right on Hastings st. so you can walk out of the resort with the beach across the road & shops & restaurants all along Hasting street. Loved the location & accessibility to beach & hastings street!! We ate at the Noosa Surf Club for dinner both nights which is on the beach a short stroll from Mantra. Didn't need the car at all with complimentary parking so you can drink & stroll back to your room at Mantra. We will be back to stay at the French Quarter.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms are on the top floor so no one above you. Pay a bit extra & get the updated room...

Spent the weekend relaxing in the chilled out atmosphere of Noosa. Our room overlooked Hastings St, 'the' street in Noosa, so was a fantastic location to walk to all the foodie places. We arrived early and asked if we were able to park the car here, not necessarily check in, but the lovely receptionist welcomed us and checked us straight in. The room was clean, with everything we needed for a break away from the children. They had the most delicious smelling lemongrass soap, a wide range of teas, dishwasher, microwave and full laundry facilities in the bathroom (which could be closed off). The bed was massive as it was two beds pushed together, but there was no problem with falling in the crack! Pillows were perfect for me--loved them. Everyone was so friendly in Noosa, we thoroughly enjoyed our break and "I will" go back to the Mantra (their "Mantra").

We initially booked to stay at the Mantra French Quarter for two nights but after spending a wonderful first day in Noosa we booked for a third night, and the reception staff were great in accommodating our last minute request and we were able to stay in the same room the whole time.

The room we were in overlooked the lagoon pool, it was very spacious and had a large balcony which was great to spend time on in the evening. We spent most of the day out and about at the beach, which is conveniently close.

The main bedroom opened up completely with shuttered doors to the lounge area and maintained a good air flow into that room. The second bedroom had no windows, but the whole apartment had good air conditioning so this wasn't an issue.

Without a doubt we will stay there again the next time we visit Noosa.
