We stayed in a deluxe 2 bedroom apartment. It was clean, spacious, air-conditioned with a full fridge, oven, microwave, hotplates, washing machine and drier and a very usable balcony. While no beach views, it is in a very convenient location as the beach is across the road and the cafes and shops are within walking distance, so no need to use your car, which is a major advantage in Noosa as parking is impossible. The staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely a great place to have a holiday.

Room Tip: worth paying the extra for a deluxe apartment as this means they have been refurbished.

Stayed in the Mantra French Quarter resort in Noosa over the new year period, with my mother (80's) and my daughter (12). We had a two bedroom apartment which worked out perfectly. The location is fabulous, a short walk to the beach, the shops, restaurants. We originally were given a very nice apartment but on the 4th floor and the lift only went to the 3rd floor. I felt that this would be a problem for my mother coming and going all the time, so asked at reception if we could change rooms. Even though it was a very busy period, they very graciously moved us around and we then had an apartment in a perfect location for us, no steps and close to the front of the complex. From reading various reviews it seems some apartments have been refurbished, and others have not. Ours was basic but clean and it had everything we needed. I do agree the positioning of the TV is a bit weird though. Nathan on reception was very helpful and helped me with lots of restaurant bookings and recommended a trip on the Everglades which was a lovely day out. Thanks Nathan!!

Stayed in a 'standard' room looking NE out over a tropical garden and found it in great condition and excellent value. Kitchen is compact but unit was fitted with washer and dryer. Good flat screen TV. Good beds and soft furnishings. Location is superb, lovely grounds, friendly and helpful staff. Only downside was the noisy restaurant below and a whine noise apparently from the restaurant aircoditioning in the basement. Complaints to the restaurant about the noise met with a rather unpleasant response

Room Tip: Stay away from the restaurant-noisy and unpleasant people

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment that was tiny and very dated, especially for the price we paid!! The kitchen has only a small bar fridge (no milk in fridge for a cup of tea) and the TV is shoved in under the kitchen cupboard. If you're travelling with kids, it's very cosy in the living room and almost impossible to see the TV. Not that you go to Noosa to watch TV, but again with kids the TV is important. The air con unit in the living room was so noisy it was like there was a car engine running all night in the lounge room!! On a positive, the location is great, so close to Main Beach and good restaurants nearby. Receptionist and her manager were lovely, very helpful and friendly, thank you!!

Unfortunately, this hotel has seen better days, rooms are now old fashioned and beyond updating. Jack hammers in the floor below every morning, lifts that are used by trades people and cleaning staff making transition between floors tiresome and time consuming.

The view from my apartment was onto the tin roof of another building - not satisfactory. Apart from the location, which many other hotels in Hastings Street also have, this hotel needs to be knocked down and rebuilt to todays standards.

Not good enough Mantra!

Room Tip: Good luck! I tried and failed.

Thanks for your review of Mantra French Quarter Noosa. We are sorry our resort was not to your liking. We do acknowledge that a very few rooms in the resort require upgrading and we are pro-actively seeking the unit owners consent to action where appropriate. In saying that, over 90% of our units are of the deluxe standard and conststently meet our guests high standards. We also apologise about any noise experienced during your stay. Unfortunately that is a necessity when working on constantly upgrading our offering and the hours of such work is kept to a minimum during the day.

Unfortunately we can not promise any demolition in the near future.

Kind regards

If Hastings St is where you want to be, this hotel is a good option. It's super close to the beach and sits at the National Park end of Noosa's famous strip.

It's a very family friendly place and, even though school holidays were nowhere in sight, the kids were sadly very noticeable from the early hours. That's a typical comment from somebody with no kids (apologies) however fair warning to those people searching for a nice place with quiet mornings: perhaps keep searching.

The pool is good fun. The facilities are decent. Rooms could use an iPod dock or equivalent. Our room (East Quarter) could use a refurb but it was clean. The air-con works well and our balcony was a good size.

If you can lock in a good deal, this is a good place to stay - particularly for young families.
