We stayed in a ground floor riverfront apartment which was fantastic.Not sure I'd stay in this complex unless I had a riverfront room. Ground floor was ideal for our family with primary school-aged children as they had direct access to the grass, beach, river and jetty, and we could watch them from our apartment.

It was a shame there were so many kayaks on the beach and boats anchored as on some days it hindered access to the narrow beach and the shallow bits of the river, which became deep not far from the beach. (Guests from all apartments can anchor their boats on the beach so there can end up being quite a few boats with lots of ropes and anchors). It would be good if there was an area designated as boat/kayak free, for playing, paddling and swimming.

The pool area was really good, with a large heated pool (warm some days, cooler on others but always pleasant if you kept moving), a shallow toddler's pool, an outside heated spa and a sauna.

The apartments are individually owned, so I think the quality and inclusions can vary. Ours was nice quality and clean (with the exception of the fleece blankets which were pretty dirty - presumably just folded between guests, not washed). Our apartment didn't have a hairdryer even though it was supposed to have one (I was brought one within 48 hours of requesting it), or a large saucepan (only a small one), and only 4 bread knives, no tissue box, 8 coathangers for 4 people. We were only given one sachet of dishwashing liquid and one of dishwasher powder which isn't enough for an 8 day visit (we asked for another sachet and were given it). Many of the visitors drive from Brisbane or other places, so bring a lot of what they need. If certain things are important to you, you should ask when booking (or bring them with you or buy them from the local shops).

The rooms can get hot in the sunlight. Most of the apartments have a roof/awning, but ours didn't, so we had to close the curtains in the heat of the day to keep out the hot sun (thereby spoiling our view). The air con is in the living room only, but we hardly used it. We mostly opened the windows to let the breeze cool the apartment, and used the ceiling fans (in our apartment they were noisy and clicked and made other funny sounds which was annoying).

Overall it was pretty quiet, although on some nights groups of teenagers used the pool and shouted a lot (and the riverfront bedrooms open to the pool area).

The property was very clean and well maintained. There are three barbecues in the common area and these were really clean.

Room Tip: Riverfront. Ground floor for direct beach access. If going in hot weather ask for an apartment with...

We loved this resort! I have been going to Noosa for holidays for the last 12 years, and this is by far the best place we have stayed at.
The location is perfect, the cleanliness is superior, decor is modern, and the hosts were so hospitable!
We can't wait to get back!

My family of 5 stayed in a 3 bedroom for 4 nights. Wished we stayed longer even though we had torrential rain for 3 nights. Great, well equipped apartment. Kids loved swimming in the river and the pool was lovely too. Perfect location, just a few minutes drive from Noosa and Noosaville. Would have been great to be able to rent/use fishing rods for the kids. Free use of the kayaks would have been nice. Beds and pillows are really hard. We would definitely be back and would recommend to friends. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!!

As a return visitor to Noosa Harbour resort ( this was my third stay) I knew what a pleasant stay we were in for. Our unit #38 a three bedroom unit with two queen and two singles tucked away on the beach side was ideal for what out group wanted,a full self contained unit on the beach near shops, restaurants with a pleasant surroundings pool spa and sauna. The free wifi was a bonus with gardens and BBQ are cleaned pristine every morning. This complex is unaffected from beach erosion (Christmas saw extreme weather wash many beach areas away) and I was able to walk every morning along the beach to access great fishing opposite the Noosa Coast guard to chase trevally on light spin gear. A charter boat operator dropped me off at the private mooring just 15m from our unit what service. There is secure access parking and all stair wells have sensor lights. I will be returning but perhaps to another unit. Our cloths dryer wasn't working ( reported to staff) and perhaps a unit vac cleaner to collect the sand from our frequent trips to the beach and pool would be our only fault. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

Stayed 5 nights, very good location between Noosaville and Noosa, units well appointed but did get hot in afternoon with northwest aspect and no A/C to the bedroom, Bathrooms good, but tiny shower with no screen so water splashes everywhere. Washing Machine and Clothes dryer came in handy. Great riverfront location and nice grassed area. Would stay again.

We always enjoy our stay at NHR on beautiful Noosa Sound in Quamby Place The gardens and amenities are always first class and the ambience of the resort with the river and the sandy beach for the children to play and the pool area with spa and sauna and the half tennis court make for a most pleasurable stay. The rooms are always maintained in excellent condition and well appointed from the kitchen lounge and bedrooms We cannot speak highly enough of the staff from Craig and his wife and Mal on the front desk they certainly make your stay a memorable one We have been returning to Noosa Harbour Resort for the past 12 years and can recommend it ( was hesitant to do so as we see it as the jewell in the crown of Noosa) Lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance Don & June
