The Anchor Motel Noosa is a good clean motel close to markets and other facilities. It is right on Lake Weyba and in a nice quiet area of Noosa.
Only a few minutes drive from Noosa National Park and Noosa beaches, the Motel is about 6 minutes drive from the famous Hastings Street shops and restaurants.
The beauty of this Motel is actually its locality. Anyone who has spent any time in Noosa knows that the traffic is the worst part of the area. It takes double time to get anywhere during peak periods, and the parking is a nightmare. The Anchor Motel Noosa is far enough away from this traffic bedlam to allow for pleasant driving, but close enough to allow visitors to get to the tourist areas within minutes.
Undercover parking is on site for one car per unit.
There are some fantastic restaurants and cafes within walking distance to enjoy a lovely breakfast. We chose the renowned Little Cove Coffee Co which is less than 2 minutes walk from the Motel.
The units are very spacious and neat with a queen size bed and a single bed in our room. I would assume most of them are the same as they all looked of a similar size. There is a bar fridge and a microwave, as well as a table for two people inside, and a television. The bathroom is separate and very adequate with a large shower and good vanity area. If there was one downside I would say it is that there is no sink in the little kitchen area, we had to use the bathroom sink. But this is a manageable problem when you look at the value you get with the large size of the units.
There is a pool on site which overlooks Weyba Road and the Noosa River. The Motel offers free wifi for guests and 25 Foxtel channels.
Each apartment has a little outdoor area with a table and two chairs overlooking the pool area.
The Noosa Farmers Markets are within walking distance. These markets are held at the local AFL club on Weyba Road. Concerts and festivals are also held at the AFL club grounds although while close enough to walk you cannot hear the concert noise from the Motel.
This is a good quality budget motel on Lake Weyba, close to markets, and within easy driving distance to the well known Noosa tourist sites.
