We stay here quite regularly. Perfect location if you love the sound of the waves crashing on the shore at night. It's getting dated but still clean & comfortable. Last time we stayed they now require a deposit for the carpark key. Which took weeks to get back. For a customer that has been visiting for many years I felt...

Located right across the road from the ocean this place is great, tidy rooms and excellent service plus amenities too. They are close to cafes and restaurants and you can catch the sunrise of you are up early enough! Recommend to all and very well priced for a seaside location.

Been looking forward to this getaway for two months. It was short lived I am very disappointed in the cleanliness of our room. The carpet was stained and dirty, the screen door was dirty there was dust throughout the room. Next to the small fridge was filthy. The views are beautiful but we wont be returning or recommending this place...

Happy with accommodation. Good price and spectacular view. Shame to see glass sliding doors hadn't been cleaned and we're covered with children's finger marks. Reception staff not very friendly Would still stay again as central, comfortable, affordable and great view

We stayed two nights over the long weekend and although the location and view from balcony is perfect it totally lacked cleanliness. Apartment 50A was in need of a a refurbishment however if it was clean it would not have mattered. We paid $420.00 for 2 nights for a one bedroom apartment which is acceptable but we were very disappointed...

4 nights rooms clean, great positioning across the road from the beach. Good deal with breakfast next door. Ask for a room with a view, family friendly, limited Foxtel channels, DVD player, a cabs fans, pools and spas.

This hotel was clean, roomy and very comfortable. It's just across the road from Coolum Beach which is a wonderful place to walk of a morning or evening. Secure parking is provided for guests underneath the hotel. There is a great little cafe and bar next door which is perfect for dinners and drinks. And it's just up the road...

This was a nice enough place to stay for a couple of days, but nothing to particularly recommend it. The location was really good but the general area of Coolum Beach was disappointing, with many places closed or closing early due to it being out of season.

we only stayed a night but it was a nice night Bed was really comfortable, bathroom needs a update but waking up and opening up the curtain and getting a view of the beach and surf was fantastic . free secured underground parking and free WiFi was a plus
