Our welcome experience at the Sofitel Noosa…
Being Platinum Accor Plus members, we were able to go straight to the priority check-in counter. We arrived early but the staff were fantastic and were able to change our room to one that was immediately available so we could check in straight away. Being platinum members, we were able to enjoy the early check-in.
Our room was incredibly spacious. As you walk in, it is hard not to notice the beautiful view down the river. We specifically picked this room because of the view, sunset and we read from several reviews it is quite peaceful and the birds in the nearby tree add to the experience!
The main room is equipped with a king bed, dining table and lounge. There is plenty of room to sit back and relax.
Something to remember is that you can order pillows off their pillow menu and for Jenna, she was able to order a body pillow to make sleeping a little more comfortable given she is pregnant.
The bathroom is neat and tidy and has a nice little spa bath to relax in.
Noosa Beach House Restaurant: Buffet Breakfast was served in the restaurant. The variety of what’s on offer is pretty good as well. There is a crepe station with made to order crepes, an egg station with made to order eggs as well as the usual buffet style breakfast.
Being a platinum member, we enjoyed breakfast for the both of us complimentary! If you’re not a Platinum member but are an Accor Plus member, you will enjoy 50% off the cost of breakfast!
Water’s Edge Pool Bar: We enjoyed lunch by the pool on our first day. It was that good that we didn’t even stop for a photo before we ate it! Jenna ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the crab roll. The food was fresh and delivered right to our pool chair!
What’s even better is that because we have an Accor Plus membership, the food was 50% off!

The pool area is fantastic. There are heaps of pool chairs and umbrellas available and the best part about the area is, of course, the swim up pool bar! There is something great about holidays and being able to get yourself a cold beverage while sitting in the pool!
Health and Fitness…
For those who like to stay active on holidays, there is a fully equipped gym located on the grounds in the pool area.
Good to know…
Parking is available at the hotel and self-parking is $25 and valet parking $35. There is plenty of parking available and you can come and go as much as you like for the same charge.
*Prices current as at July 2018.
There was also a laundry available on our floor so if you’re travelling and haven’t had a chance to catch up on your washing, you’ll be able to do that here!
Quick, simple and easy.
Above and beyond…
The staff were so kind to us celebrating our babymoon. They placed two rubber duckies in our room with handwritten notes, together with a fruit platter and some sparkling water.
The not so good…
I have nothing to report here.
It is definitely a great place to unwind and relax. Would definitely recommend if you’re planning a trip to Noosa.
