In the first week of June my family rented a 2 bedroom deluxe apartment at Trafalgar Towers. The newly refurbished apartment and the complexes facilities were great. We were able to bring our 4.5m fishing boat and tie up at Trafalgar's Marina. We were blessed with fine weather so had a great time fishing, catching crabs, relaxing and playing tennis. We looked out over the very attractive Maroochy river towards the mouth and in the near distance could even see the sailing boats and tankers going past. As there is a nature reserve on the other side of the river the view is tranquil and pristine. Close by are plenty of shops, supermarkets and dinning options. I can recommend a small BYO restaurant called Yabbies at Cotton Tree. With secure parking underneath the helpful staff went out of their way to find a spot for our trailer as well. If the complex was full we would have had to have found a spot outside on the road.

This is about the third time we have been to Trafalgar and have had a great time each year. I would highly recommend Trafalgar Towers.

Room Tip: I would recommend choosing a refurbished unit (deluxe) positioned in the centre of the complex which...

Trafalgar Towers is situated on the maroochy river and is a very tranquil setting for those who want to get away from it all. It also is next to great facilities such as takeaway restaurants and not far at all from Sunshine Plaza. It is very clean and the service is excellent and friendly.

We have been going here over the years, not often enough but I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in May. The apartment was very spacious and my husband enjoyed us having a bathroom each. Having a kitchen was a bonus for preparing breakfasts and snacks. Afternoons sitting on the balcony watching the tide come in and the pelicans swimming about were very relaxing.
The location is also excellent and a very nice stroll to shops and cafes. The pool and spa were lovely and clean and a perfect temperature. We didn't get a chance to use the kayaks but will make sure next time we are there to use them.
The staff were excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble.
Thanks for a wonderful stay.

We spent 10 days here on a very reasonable rate in May. The facilities are great and the location is perfect. We could walk to the local enormous shopping centre (7 minutes) with your pick of eateries or you could call a courtesy bus to one of the surf lifesaving clubs for lunch or dinner which was perfect for us as we didnt have a car
The hosts are lovely and there is a range of things to do there or you can go out and explore maroochy, it was all good. We stayed in 9d and it was perfect for us. We travelled as 3 adults and 1 child and they were able to accomodate us with an extra bed for the child and even though it was only a 2 bed they had a bed in the (since build) enclosed balcony so we all got our own space.
The apartment was clean and well maintained and the beds and pillows were really comfortable especially the main bed. The decor is dated but everything else was spot on, perfect for a family or couple on a budget but wanting a little bit of room, I have paid a lot more for a lot less
I only have one very minor complaint and that is there doesnt seem to be any exhaust in the bathrooms so if you are having a hot shower then you might need another one once you are finished as it got quite warm but having said that its Queensland and it was humid when we were there so I only ever had tepid showers anyway (victorian here :))
Oh and no wifi I dont think, didnt think to ask but it wasnt in the information we were given so we assumed there was none, which would have been nice

My son played to his heart content in the pool and on the pool table and had a ball.

If you are looking for space and comfort at a great price and dont need the high end uncomfortable furnishings then this is the place, we would all come back in a heartbeat

Room Tip: we were in a great room as we got the north sun all day with west (facing the river) and east (facin...

We had 8 days here in May, and got a very good special, paid for 5 days with extra 3 days for free. We paid a little more for a refurbed deluxe 2 bedroom unit on the 12th floor which was worth the extra. Lillian made the check in hassle free and gave us good suggestions for our stay. The view from Unit 12A stretched from Twin Waters around the ocean, down the river to the town, including a further balcony stretching the entire length of the Buderim side of the building, giving us 180 deg. views of the town, shopping centre, Buderim, and distant hinterland heights. The swimming pool was heated so we had some good swims and the spa was hot. The deck chairs and amenities were very modern and clean. There is a full size tennis court, and games room with a pool table and table tennis. Kayaks can also be hired for river use. The unit needed a few little things done to it, but overall we had a great relaxing holiday with restaurants and town within walking distance.

Room Tip: 12A, a corner unit, gives you great views of ocean, river, town and hinterland. This is a refurbed...

Upon enquiring as to what type of apartments were on offer the manageress Britt was very helpful despite been under a barrage of other issues to deal with at that time. She was more than happy to explain the room layouts and even produced a floor layout of the building to assist in what was on offer. She was also obliging in letting us see several rooms so we could chose the best suitable – the first few we viewed did look very outdated & were thinking of else ware to stay- But 4B a- refurbished apartment changed our minds.
The apartment was clean, well maintained and the large multi-fold glass doors certainly brought the outdoors indoors. The update undertaken to this apartment was well worth the cost & effort by the owners & I hope this continues, as I am sure it will reap the rewards they outlay. My admission at this point would be to say that I work as contractor undertaking garden/building maintenance at a resort on the East coast of Tasmania- so to that point can truly understand what is involved in undertaking & achieving what has been done.
The kitchen was large and had just about everything (apart from a sharp knife), lounge/bedrooms were large and air with nice views.
A few small issues with a blocked vanity basin and a smelly kitchen sink- were written on a maintenance sheet when checking out by lady on reception- with a feeling of faith that they would be dealt with and not just a ok, yes, mmm – response.
As it was apparently school holidays when we stayed I should point out to non children staying guests that the pool noise travels a long way up the building- and adults doing ‘laps’ can be even worse... at 6 am I was awoken be the sound of what sounded like someone throwing bricks into the river from the top floor- caplunck- caplunck over and over... then I saw an adult trying to do laps in the pool- suppose they didn’t realise their swimming skills would wake people up at daybreak.
Otherwise all good and congratulations on winning the Travellers' Choice 2013.

Room Tip: 4B was great!
