This hotel has it all with a superb bar , great pool , outstanding restaurant and beautiful décor
Its staff are switched on and very helpful and your location is excellent . Room service is another big plus as you can actually order a snack at the right price !

Room Tip: Go for the King room with the ocean view its well worth the extra

Heya Mull1964,

So wonderful to hear that you love the hotel and got to make use of all the services and amenities.

Amen to the room service comment! When every room has a balcony like this property does, there's nothing better than checking out the sunset with a basket of spicy buffalo wings!

Hope you see you again soonest,

Sas

We arrived at the QT hotel to find a funky, quirky atmosphere. The staff at check in were efficient and friendly and we were given a beautifully styled room on level 21. The hotel offers everything you need if you just want to get away for a short relaxing holiday.

The highlights were SpaQT where we were treated to a relaxing massage and the restaurants on offer. Standouts were Bazaar and Yamagen. Bazaar not only has a wonderful buffet breakfast with a 'market place' feel but the dinner also offers a wonderful selection of different cuisines which are offered by way of a tasting plate if requested.

If you are looking for the full hotel experience then you can't go past QT Gold Coast!

Room Tip: Try and get a higher floor, morning lift traffic means you will always get in first and not be force...

As locals, we were after a little night away, and QT was amazing. We stayed on the 7th floor right next to the elevators but didn't notice any kind of internal noise at all - just the general stuff from outside. The staff were amazing, actually comped us free parking and free drinks thanks to having to listen to some guest having a whinge at the desk on check in. From free lemonade and iced tea in the lobby to a great team at the spa for an unreal massage, and an unbelievable breakfast at Bazaar, we will definitely be pointing visitors to the QT.

Room Tip: Room 701 - Paid for a mountain view but able to see the sea as well!

My partner and I booked a 2 night stay in the King Mountain River View with the QT hotel at Surfer paradise. The booking included 2 buffet breakfast meals and a 45 minute SpaQ treatment of either a massage or facial.

We were allocated a room above the 15th floor which had pleasant views of the gold coast skyline. The room was large, clean, tidy, well equipped, and the bed was super comfortable. The room also contained a mini bar (with drinks), a Nespresso machine, snacks, and other goodies. All of which was clearly priced on a pricing menu. During our stay housekeeping was great. Thank you =).

The buffet breakfast was spectacular and catered to my every desire. Dinner at Bazaar restaurant was spectacular! It was very busy luckily we booked a few days ahead of time. The staff were very polite, organised, and helpful. We were shown around and seated very quickly for both the breakfast and dinner services.

Additionally, our package included a SpaQ which was very professional and the 45 minutes flew by quickly. My partner and I really enjoyed this brief time of our trip and both felt very relaxed by the end of the treatment. Thank you =)

Ultimately we really enjoyed our stay at the QT.

Extra info – Priority guest member receive extra benefits so sign up (its free) you will not regret it. Finding parking was difficult on a Saturday night but we still managed to find a car park. Parking was $8 per day which was paid at the end of the stay.

I was so looking forward to my stay. But the traffic noise goes all night and construction work going at 9pm still. I wish I shopped around before jumping into staying here. Disappointed also too many mirrors! According to feng shui mirrors are not advised to be in bedrooms . Also see through curtains. Just not as exciting as the web site would have you believe

Stayed 2 nights in a King Ocean View room on Level 15, thanks to a trip I won through the Cancer Council Australia. On arrival we received complimentary sparkling wine & a welcome board made of chocolate...a delicious way to start our holiday. The room was bright, clean & welcoming, with the most comfy King bed I've ever slept in! The lighting in the room wasn't really sufficient at night but that is only a minor complaint. The view from our room was amazing & the location of the Hotel is perfect - right on the Esplanade, within easy walking distance of the foreshore & Cavill Mall. There's a little convenience store nearby (Pit Stop) which was handy for a mad dash before catching our plane early Sunday morning! There is a large mini-bar selection in the room, although we didn't buy anything. Most things in the room are also for sale in the Hotel shop on the lower level, which was a nice touch. It was lovely to have cabs parked right over the road from the front entrance - no waiting around required & there are also complimentary retro bikes for hire.
Friday night was unfortunately noisy until after midnight, as construction work was going on nearby for the new tram line (we could also hear a few screams here & there from the sling shot attraction next door until late) but thankfully Saturday night was quiet.
The Hotel staff were all very friendly & helpful, especially at the amazing Bazaar restaurant on Level 1. We enquired about dinner Saturday night & were advised that although they were booked out, if we came back down around 7-7.30 for a drink in the bar they would find us a table when one was available. We eventually headed down for dinner around 8.30pm & were greeted by a friendly waiter who welcomed us & explained to us how service works. It's a beautiful buffet set-up, much like a street market where you can talk to the chefs & they tell you all about the food & answer any questions you might have. From Mexican, to Asian, to bread & salad, to an amazing dessert buffet - even if not staying in house I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone on the Gold Coast! The complimentary breakfast was just as amazing. Pastries, cereals, juices & flavoured milks, eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, huge selections of fruit & yoghurt - the list goes on and on. Definitely give this restaurant a try, you won't regret it.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & I would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up, as the Nightclub on the ground floor is particularly loud!

What an amazing getaway! From the moment we walked in the doors of QT we got involved in the fun retro atmosphere they have created and were impressed by the professionalism of the concierge staff. The room was tidy and well equipped and the bed was amazingly comfy. We decided to stay in and order room service for dinner, which was better than restaurant food enjoyed eaten in the comfy bath robes they supply. We will definitely be back!
