“Convenient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

My partner and I stayed here with two other couples from the end of December to the start of January. It is a great location only 10 minuets walk to the main streets and beach and very close drive to the boat hire. We came down to celebrate the new year spending the days at the beach and doing out door activities and spending the night playing cards (as we do a lot). On our first night we got a bang on our door from a guest staying in the room next to telling us we have 2 minuets to keep the noise down or she would call the police and she started rattling off her rights and was yelling at us. It was 5 minuets past 10 pm when we got the knock. we apologised to the guest and said we didn't realise what time time was and we would keep the noise down (even though we were not really making to much noise) After that we went to bed and realised how thin the walls were as we could here the same people watching TV in their room. After we went to bed we got another know at our door. it was the on site manger who very rudely asked us what the problem was. we told her the situation and told her we were already in bed. The location and rooms were very good no complaints but when it comes to the people that were in the room next to us and the on site manager they could have been a nicer considering we did nothing wrong being 10 pm. The rooms could be a bit cleaner when we looked under the bed there was a lot of dust and the toilet brush was rusty and the cupboards in the bathroom were dusty. other then those faults we had a good stay and would go back.

Room Tip: Don't make any noise after 10PM

We (6 of us) stayed 4 nights over Christmas in a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment, number 20. The apartment is well appointed, has great views over the river and across to the ocean. At night we could hear the ocean waves. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment and its size. All bedrooms are very large as is the living area. It is well appointed with everything you need including seating and cutlery etc for 8 persons to sit at the table. It is convenient to Noosa Junction (for grocery shopping etc) and its easy to get to Hastings Street. The staff are great and we would stay again.

My Wfie and I stayed for six nights. The staff were brilliant, we arrived late and they made all the arrangements for us to get into the apartment. The apartment was number 32 a two bed roomed apartment which was very well appointed. It has large rooms every facility for cooking and eating in.

There are two outdoor balconies an entrance area and a balcony which over looked the pool.

Our only problem was the poor wifi connectivity, it didn't work. As we are travelling business people we need good wifi support. We over came the problem by using the Cafe opposite the Surf Club which worked well.

We would return because we were impressed by the quality and location of the apartment.

Room Tip: No advice, all the apartments are equally well situated.

We have just returned after six nights at Macquarie Lodge and found it ideally suited to our needs. The receptionist was cheerful and very helpful and our apartment was very clean and well equipped. We stayed in apartment 21 which had a lovely view over the river. Close to Noosa Junction that has everything you could possibly need without having the impossible parking problems of Hastings Street.

Room Tip: Apartment 21 is great, Pictures are available on their website.

My partner and I have just gotten back from macquarie lodge on Wednesday after staying 4 days. We had such a wonderful holiday and are still feeling relaxed. Our apartment #5 was a one bedroom, 2 bathroom with large living area, laundry and opened out onto the lawn area and noosa river. The boardwalk steps to the river were only 10 metres from our door. The apartment was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Two flat screens (one of which had the clearest picture I've ever seen and put my own to shame) the couple running the resort were lovely and helpful and even let us borrow towels for the pool after we had checked out as our flight wasn't until the evening. It's situated on a quiet road about 1km from noosa junction where there are some restaurants, tourist shops, iga supermarket, bottle shop etc
and about 1.5 km from Hastings street and noosa beach. The walk is a beautiful one and perfect walking weather at the moment too. The only negative was that the iga was a bit of a walk if you wanted anything more than coffee and tea (supplied) and you dont have transport so you had to do daily trips but if you take advantage of noosas great restaurants it wont be a problem. Will stay here again and already planning our trip back. Thank you

We stayed in Macquarie lodge for a 3 day weekend in a 3 bedroom apartment. The rooms were big and very well kept. The location was ideal, just few km away from Hastings Street. Free undercover parking also provided. Will surely recommend.

We enjoyed a stay for a week with friends in a three bedroom apartment. Our apartment was on the third floor and had a beautiful view over the trees to the Ocean. It was extremely well maintained, quiet and relaxing. We loved the balcony which had a great view and which we sat on most mornings with a coffee and had a lovely array of tropical birds as visitors. Beds were comfortable and the apartment had everything we needed. Great location to Noosa, Noosa Junction and Noosaville. Only downside was the TV needed replacement and at times felt like we had entered Fort Knox. We needed keys to unlock so many doors that sometimes, when juggling bags or shopping it was a bit inconvenient. Would definitely recommend and would stay again, staff very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Try for a third storey apartment as views are sensational
