“Great Location, good price”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We have stayed at Mantra French Quarter several times over the past few years with our last being January 2014. The location is very handy to the beach and fine restaurants. We stayed in a 2 brm superior suite which was lovely overlooking Hastings Street with street noise not being a problem. Rooms could do with a little more cleaning and remote control batteries replaced more often (a problem we seem to encounter on most visits). Nice pool area with a small shallow pool for the little ones. Staff always very helpful and friendly. Very good value for money, even in the peak season. North wing best for quicker access to street frontage and beach. All self-contained apartments and perfect for families of all ages. You will need to book well in advance for peak season (Dec/Jan).

Room Tip: North wing for easier, quicker access to Hastings St and beach- 3rd floor for views of Hastings Stre...

I have stayed at this venue many times over the years, beautifully located, although I have never stayed in school holidays before ( our first school holiday adventure) I was a little shocked the first day we arrived as the pool area was complete chaos, full of toys and large family groups ( all having a marvelous time mind you ) !! Not as I had fondly remembered.
Upon viewing our room , very clean and newly renovated, (note:not serviced in the cost ) I was a little disappointed that we did not have a pool view, a fact I was quickly grateful for given the pool noise, and turned into a blessing come evening when to our wonderful surprise the street fairy lights in the trees on Hastings was our pretty view :) just don't walk around in your birthday best !!
One day in we trudged on down to the pool with our two children ( weapons in hand / ready to fight ourselves a clear patch) and again to our surprise the place was cleared out !! Being mid week we had timed this well, and with just enough left over shrapnel in the pool my children were delighted, having wonderful adventures with other smaller children and families "the evil troll bridge" and bubbling cauldrons (two spa pools) and played very safely and happily aside from over chlorination, pack the kids goggles, a fact I'm sure is unavoidable at this time of year.
A run around the point every morning great shopping and a variety of restaurants later, what a wonderful, relaxing, holiday was had and aside from a few exuberant dinners ( baby sitting service provided was excellent ) it didn't really break the bank. So I know that Hastings may not be the very most trendy ' in the know ' place to stay in Noosa anymore but I think it's still got IT !!

We have just returned from a two night stay at the French Quarter, so impressed with the one bedroom deluxe apartment that we booked, it was perfect in every way, modern and very clean with a beautiful leafy outlook over the pool. The resort is in a perfect position at the quiet end of Hastings Street, so close to everything you need and just across the road from the beach. The resort has a fabulous pool and spa area and lovely landscaped gardens. Everyone at reception was very helpful and kindly met our requests for the location of the apartment overlooking the pool. Having looked at other complexes on Hastings Street, we believe that the French Quarter offers the best value for money and a truly relaxing holiday ambience. It will be our first choice always!

Stayed for two nights in a standard two bedroom apartment with my daughter and her girl friend after getting a great rate on the Internet. The location on Hastings St was awesome enabling us to walk everywhere. Although the apartment was a little run down in some areas (in need of refurbishment), it was very comfortable (particularly the bed), clean, neat and tidy. We were on an upper level at the back of the complex so it was very quiet with beautiful views over the pool area and small glimpses of the ocean. No complaints and would stay again.

Right in the centre of Hastings St Noosa, the location is great, for two people the unit is small but comfortable. However the very high bath/spa/shower, makes getting into and out of the shower very difficult. The only thing we felt that was missing was a BBQ area with tables.

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.

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

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
