Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were looking for peace and quiet, so this was perfect. Not close to the beach, but we knew this and didn't care. Set in a clean, green and modern area, I enjoyed exercising, walking around the well maintained water ways.

The one bedroom apartment was obviously intended for long stays. Extremely well equipped. The bedroom can be separated by a 3 panel sliding frosted glass door. Not light or sound proof.

Too many items in the cupboards to list, please see my photos. The kithen was more than adequate. Great TV and comfortable lounge. Even a laundry.

Very roomy and storage space everywhere.

Wifi and hot water 10 out of 10.

A few nice eating places just around the corner. Decent size shopping mall across the canal bridge.

Check in was a bit daunting for *me* lol...this button does this, then do that in the lift. All good. Reception is a small separate building and their physical hours are limited, unlike a normal hotel.

An unexpected credit card charge (I booked using Agoda) was eventually refunded, and be aware that a security bond ($150) on your debit/credit card is kept in limbo land for up to 10 days after check out.

I'd definitely stay again.

Thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We love being away from the hustle and bustle, but still central to all the Sunshine Coast has to offer! For security purposes, we do have button and FOB access to our garages, foyer door and elevator, and we understand there is few steps to remember. Please always feel free to ask us if you need assistance, we'll be more than happy to help. Our security bond proceedure is outlined in our booking terms, but thank you for letting us know this caught you by surprise. We will look into how this information is communicated through Agoda and make sure it's easily found. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you next time!

Located right behind the sunshine coast university hospital, and a quick drive to a handful of shops - this place suited our needs in lines of location.
We booked a 2 bedroom apartment as my husband was having surgery on the coast both his mother and I were staying with him in the motel, we specifically chose this one because the main bedroom had it's own private bathroom and the second bedroom had the main bathroom.
We had a full sized kitchen with a full sized Fridge and Freezer as well as microwave and cooktop and oven. Not the usual bar fridge and microwave that I have had at other hotels!
The balcony was massive, and you felt you had privacy inside and outside.
Ducted air con also was an amazing feature!
Best feature of all though, the king bed was unbelievably comfortable!

If you're not used to the sunshine coast, this is not located close to the amazing beaches everyone loves and they are a short drive away. And due to the close proximity of the hospital literally a stone throw away, you may hear the emergency helicopter arriving, I only heard it once at about 5.30pm - but when the tv was on quietly and the balcony door was closed I didn't hear it at all.

100% recommend, value for money, better than 90% of the places I've stayed.

We usually book into a Suite and although small that is all we need for one or two nights.
It is very conveniently positioned with Lake Kawana on one side, University hospital and Private hospitals, close walking distance. Shops are also situated close by, with access to a restaurant and other eateries and good food
Check in is fast and efficient, Suite clean
Couldn't ask for any more.

We only needed to stay one night but would be happy to stay here again if need be. From the time we booked we were kept informed. Because of Covid our check in was contactless but the communications from the hotel was detailed and very well written. We did go to the incorrect garage but soon realised our mistake and from then on we had no problems. The room was small but well appointed, comfortable and quiet. This hotel is very convenient if you are in need of some accommodation close to the Sunshine Coast University hospitals.

The apartment wasn’t cleaned properly, air conditioning vents were dirty. Tracks on floors had dead insects and cockroaches. Bathroom has mould. The chair for the desk has the seat sunk in and needs replacing. I advised reception and got back that night to nothing being resolved. They can take bonds off you and take money but not repair or fix things. Appalling service. The girl said they had new cleaners (well that’s scary to hear)
