I recently stayed at Peppers and thoroughly enjoyed it. I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (ground floor) which comfortably fit 4 adults. It had a lovely spa bath and rain shower in the master room and the beds were very comfortable!
My only negatives about the room is that I expected a view (probably based on hotel photos), and that I was placed in an "Eco" room and therefore had no daily room service. We tried calling twice about it but our phone didn't seem to work... I guess I expected just a little more for spending $1200 for 3 nights (but I also realize I probably spent a lot less than people with amazing apartments with the views). Looking back now it would have been a better idea to book a place for half the price.
Other than that, the heated pool was nice but wasn't overly big so quite crowded. The free breakfast daily was delicious. The happy hour had good prices and runs from 4.30-6 but I always seemed to be busy and never got around to actually going.
The staff were lovely and accommodating. Probably the most friendly hotel staff I've ever encounter.
The entry/exit roads can get confusing but I received a courtesy call before my stay advising me how this works. I'm assuming they block the roads off to stop the hotel becoming a thoroughfare for road traffic.
I can't comment on the walking distances. However it didn't look like a big walk down to Hastings, just hilly on the way back.
I'd recommend a stay here but probably check the room you are getting.
We recently stayed for two nights. The unit was beautiful and had everything we needed. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. It is close to all the restaurants on Gympie Terrace and only a few minutes drive to Noosa. The only problem we had was that the shower leaked water. The managers were very helpful and tried to fix the problem for us. Would recommend to everyone.
Had an extremely enjoyable one week stay at the Riverside Retreat off the holiday season.
While the hotel was somewhat out of the way from the main attractions of Noosa, such as the main beach or the main areas of the riverside, it was a comfortable distance from both.
The staff were extremely polite and attentive in regards to booking tours and arranging our way to and from attractions.
Beds and living rooms were very comfortable, and the bathroom was serviceable. The living area is nothing special, but is a well maintained and simple garden and pool.
, once a quiet cove and now a lively resort, has beaches that range from north-facing Noosa Main Beach, where beginners surf gentle waves, to Alexandria Bay with its blowhole and big waves (accessible only by footpath), to east-facing Sunshine Beach, which extends south for several km towards Coolum Beach. Laguna Lookout, at Noosa National Park, features panoramic views.
