Review is solely based on the room we were allocated. Access to room is via stairs only, the room is very outdated and old and requires maintenance. The shower screen was unable to be opened fully and water pressure poor. The room appeared to have only been wiped down and not professionally cleaned, rubbish had been left in the bin from previous occupants. The lounge was marked and the curtains dirty and appeared the room had not been dusted for a number of months. The bed consisted of sheets and an old cover. Noise from other apartments and pool area could be easily heard even when doors and windows closed. This room was disappointing.
We stayed here after a few lovely nights at The Noosa blue. Big step down although the recommendation had been that this place was fabulous! Sadly it was a bit plain, outdated & could do with a renovation. Seems many rooms are different so pot luck if it’s a good one. Kitchen & bathroom tired & old. Extra bathroom was locked which was weird. Suitable for a business trip or the like but we wouldn’t book for holiday. Pool by the bar not quite as advertised but a novelty. Liked the walking track down to the beach/shops but it’s a reasonable walk if you’re not into that kind of thing. We had a nice view down to the beach.
Brilliant stay at Noosa International Resort. We were able to check in early. Rooms were spacious and we had an amazing view of the pool. Hotel location is very central and only 10 min walk to Hastings Street. Pool was heated and good size, lots of kids around the pool though. It would have been nice to have received fresh towels as we were staying for 3 nights. Also somewhere to buy food / snacks / drinks in the hotel. Overall lovely stay definitely recommend.
I had a lovely stay here for my 40th birthday. The room was clean and spacious and had a nice view (although the bathrooms and kitchen were a bit outdated). The pool area was great, and it was conveniently located to both Hastings Street and Noosa Junction. The only downside was discovering a sundries charge automatically added to my credit card without explanation. When I phoned up later to enquire about it, I was told it was a credit card surcharge. I wish this had been explained to me at check-in, because I reserved the room through booking.com and assumed that the amount on the booking is what I would pay. (I have made 11 other bookings through that site in the past, and have only ever paid the amount listed on the reservation.)
We stayed here as a family for 1 night in May 2019. The reception staff were very friendly, but it's interesting to note that reception closes at 2pm on a Saturday. I suspect the Noosa International is one of those resorts where each unit is individually owned at the resort manages the rentals on behalf of the owners. This means you take pot luck on how your room is decorated and furnished. Ours looked like it could do with a thorough renovation and tart up. As others have mentioned, the rooms are very basic and a bit dingy with low ceilings and bad lighting in the bathroom, which has no external windows. We had a small balcony overlooking the back pool with a great view along the Noosa River towards Noosaville. The resort is at the top of the hill between Noosa Heads and Noosa Junction. There's a walking track with steps that takes you to Hastings Street through the bushland, which is pleasant, but going uphill is not for the unfit! This wasn't any problem for us as we were there to go hiking in the National Park, but others may find it hard work. Another thing we had been looking forward to was spending the afternoon soaking in the spa. However, it was so hot we couldn't sit in it for more than a couple of minutes and came out looking like boiled lobsters. That was very disappointing - don't they know about he guidelines for spa use? It was way hotter than the recommended 36-37 degrees! In saying all this, we got a good price for the room, so I suppose we got what we paid for. I remember when the Noosa International used to be the height of sophistication and luxury (I'm talking the late-80s/early 90s here) but now it's very tired and hasn't kept up with accepted standards. Great place to base yourself for a budget trip to Noosa, but if you want a luxurious getaway, I'd give this one a miss.…
