Night at Sheraton Noosa

I spent the night at Sheraton Noosa on Saturday night as some friends and I went to a 30th birthday party in Tewantin.

I shared a twin room with a couple of friends and another couple had the interconnecting room next door. Due to "connections", we got an extremely good rate and somehow we got upgraded to a pool view room.

I haven't been to Sheraton Noosa for a number of years so it was interesting to note the refurbishing they've done since. The lobby has been done up and they have redone the bedding package in all the rooms.

What struck me most about the rooms is their size ... they are huge (especially compared to many city/corporate hotels)! The first thing I noticed that they haven't worked on since I was last there is the bathrooms. They really don't need that much work done to them, they are still in good condition, but the tiles look quite dated and overall it could use some TLC or freshening up. Bathrooms are usually the most expensive part of a room to refurbish so its no great surprise that these are yet to be done.

We had a discount to the hotel restaurant but since a few of my friends were feeling the effects from the night before, we decided a buffet might not be the best idea. We instead had breakfast at Bistro C on the beach. Despite being busy, the service was good and all the meals were excellent. One of the girls even went as far as to call it "the best breakfast experience she's had".

  1. Yeah it's a pretty cool place hey? I loved the size of the rooms and that they had spa baths in them and those little kitchenette things as well as balcony's - like mini apartments. But yeah, just a bit tired on the overall 'finish' in terms of look and feel. Still, the beds were comfy and the vibe of the place is great. Very handy to everything in Noosa too. I was there a few years back now for a conference and we had a ball.
