Thanks for your great review. We do have a small carpark so that we charge $20 for the parking. Hope to see you again soon in Sunshine Coast.

Check in staff were rude, refused to provide an additional key as the staff split over two floors. Manager gave additional key but carried on about security despite the booking being paid by the same company. Room was very small with twin beds, barely enough room to walk luggage in. Bathroom weird and filthy - last guests hair in shower sling with accumulated dust. No door to bathroom/shower - just weird. Breakfast was cold and awful eggs, sausage and garlic filled beans. Coffee machine tapes 47 seconds to make a long black (the machine timed it not me) Will not stay here again

Hi April, Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear that your stay wasn't up to your expectation. For our guest privacy and safety, we always double check the identifications and guest details before we issue any extra keys. The room you booked in was a stand room with two queen beds in it. This is our biggest room type which can fit 4 people. Lots of guests love the size and configuration of this room type. About the shower door, it is shared with the bathroom door. It is designed to maximize the bathroom space. I have passed this feedback onto our management team, and they will contact you for further information. We do hope that we can welcome you back in the near future. A better stay will be guaranteed for you.

Everything is fine except for the parking it's an extra cost.

This is a great addition to the Sunshine Coast hotel scene. While the area around the hotel in the new Maroochydore CBD is still something of a building site, the hotel itself is excellent. The rooms are really well designed, the fitness room is small but adequate, the rooftop swimming pool looked fantastic (though I didn't use it) and there are a couple of excellent restaurants - Market Bistro and Giddy Geisha next door - making the lack of F&B at the hotel largely irrelevant. A few problems with reconciling the Wotif booking with an available room, but otherwise it was a very good experience.

We had a fantastic stay snd the staff were super nice and helpful. We loved that breakfast was free, what a bonus….. The only thing that was inconvenient was the lack of carparks.
