QT Gold Coast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2012 via mobile

I stayed at QT for 3 days, for a work-related conference. The hotel has a neat '1950's Miami' surf theme - all the way from decorations and fittings to staff uniforms.

The hotel was refurbished in 2011 and is like new. The accommodation and conference facilities are first class - a light breezy atmosphere.

The hotel is one block back from the beach, and just a short walk to the Cavill Avenue shops.

The bar/bistro has an excellent menu - loved the Mexican stuff.

I'll be back here to stay with my family.

Warm welcome. I stayed for 3 nights and found the staff ordinary. The room was not cleaned during the day - the bed was made and the bin emptied but that was all. No cups were cleaned, benches wiped or breakfast menus replaced. Items in the mini bar section look old (wrapping torn and faded, lollipop broken) and uninviting - that maybe a good thing as it certainly does not tempt you to buy them. I spend a lot of time in motels and this is the worst in respect to the service of the rooms that I have experienced.

One of the best hotel experiences I have had was staying at the QT on the Gold Coast. The decor was quirky, but the service and quality were amazing.

All the staff did everything they could to ensure we had a great stay and they were all quite happy to stop and have a chat. The food at the buffet breakfast was brilliant and we constantly ate more than we could fit because it tasted so great.

The dinner we had in the restaurant was also fantastic and besides struggling to walk up the stairs from eating too much, we couldn't possibly complain.

The rooms were lovely, the beds amazingly comfy and it was nice heading out to the balcony for a bit of fresh air.

The location is good in that you are just outside the noisy nightclub strip, but are also close enough to Cavill Ave to walk there in just a few minutes.

Can't recommend this hotel highly enough for anyone heading to the Gold Coast and will be back this summer, for sure.

We stayed here in August 2012 for a conference and holiday, we had a great time there its a real funky hotel with great atmosphere, the beach front balcony rooms are excellent the views are spectatcular worth the little bit extra cost.
The breakfast is unreal it would be one of the best breakfast buffets I have had and for $25 per person you cant loose.
Short stroll to the best beaches and a 5 min walk to centre of Gold Coast shops, we had a hire car and you can get free street parking out the front no damage or undercover parking real cheap.
This is more a couples place as the pool area isnt huge for kids but nice.
The rooms were really nice and very clean we give it a 5 star
The bar there goes off on a Thursday and Friday with a DJ
Approx $30 cab ride to the casino but we only went there once and the local resturants are very good and street entertainment everywhere

Room Tip: Take a beachside balcony room its worth the little bit extra and makes the stay

It's not often that being away for work can feel like a holiday, but the QT experience made it so! So much attention to details has gone into the place, from the concierge & reception retro outfits, to the homemade lemonade & quirky room decor. The real test was whether the great style could be matched by real substance, and it was - The staff had just the right balance of friendly professionalism. The QT made me want to return to the GC.

I stayed here for one night to attend a reunion and I almost didn't book it due to being put off by the bizarre colour scheme in the photos on their website.
I am glad I did book because the rooms were OK and not too retro, but very Gold Coast.
Service was excellent and I ate in the Stingray, Bazaar and the coffee shop downstairs.
Breakfast was well worth the cost with a huge selection and all of it very fresh and tasty.
The Stingray lounge served a huge meal and it was hot, fresh and delicious as well.
The bed was a little soft and there was no pillow menu, but it is a sold 3.5-4* hotel so I was not expecting this anyway really.
The fresh lemonade is a great touch!
I would come back here if I had to stay in the vicinity, well worth the cost.

I would just like to say from the moment we were meet at the door by concierge to leaving the next day it was just perfect in every way.
The Staff were impeccable in every way & we will be back sometime very soon.
The room 1305 was just so inviting & the bed omg I want 1 for home.

Thank you QT for a wonderful night away.
