My husband and I stayed at the QT for our wedding anniversary, opulent room, thick white towels, deep bath, fabulous view of the ocean at Surfers. Staff dressed in bright beach gear, and the food was so unbelievably great. We are going to be regulars

Room Tip: Just ask for an ocean view the staff are all so helpful and the free fresh made lemonade is refreshi...

Stayed here for 3 nights, great view of the ocean from my room and the bed was really comfy. The bathroom was ok but the vanity is really small, no-where to put your stuff and the faucet is really awkward. The funky retro update of the hotel is cool but I think if you were coming here to relax you might find it a bit full on, there is stuff everywhere. Staff seemed helpful and friendly and location was good, close to the boardwalk.

One of our favorite places to stay on the Gold Coast. The rooms have such a funky vibe and whether your in the ocean view or mountain view they both offer great scenery. The breakfast is awesome! (Mostly why we chose to stay here) overall fantastic!

Without doubt this was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at.

From its quirky retro Gold Coast feel and décor to great-looking staff members with superb customer service skills, this place has it all.

Perfect place for a couple’s weekend away without kids.

You have to try the buffet breakfast! It is to die for!

We booked into this hotel for 12 days for our honeymoon. I wish I had done more research before I booked this. They have little to no customer service. We booked a package deal, room with ocean view, breakfast and parking, along with welcome drinks. (which we are still waiting for). The disaster started from check in, and got worse from there. In room 1 toilet leaked, airconditioner broke, water pipe banged all night. Room 2, airconditioner broke, TV broke, bathroom dirty. Room service appalling, had to ask for a face cloth every day. Manager said he would sort this out but did not do so. Their bar turns into a nightclub on weekends, so very loud base till early hours of morning, lots of drunks in lobby and out the front, were guests have to go to smoke, also have to fight your way through them when you come back from a night out. Manager did nothing about complaints. Did offer if we came back a free night, which we politely turned down, also gave us a voucher for free drink, but them closed the bar for private function, so could not use voucher. King bed is two single mattress put together, not a comfortable place to cuddle while on your honeymoon. Also there is a hum that you can hear all night, and with the new trams you can hear the bell they ring at the station within the rooms. They do have balcony's but if you are not a fan of sitting amongst months odd bird poop you are forced to stay inside. I have photo's of everything stated here but I don't seem to be able to upload them here. Just DONT DO IT. Katie in the breakfast restaurant is outstanding :)

Room Tip: None that I am aware of

Hi ReneeLisa BT,

Thanks kindly for your review.

There a lot for us to digest in there as you really did not enjoy your stay, so we will comb through it with the team and make any changes that are necessary to reconcile your points.

I stayed at the QT hotel for a week, I have stayed here in the past but never reviewed it on trip advisor.
It’s a very funky/trendy sort of place and very popular but not really geared towards families. The hotel had an upgrade about 5 years ago so the rooms are reasonably clean and tidy. The bathrooms aren’t big and there is no bench space by the sink which is a pain but this is the only annoyance.
The breakfast restaurant is very popular and the buffet choices are never ending.
There is a bar that turns into a night club in the foyer which is nice for a drink but it does get very busy from people not staying in the hotel and on our last night when returning from a meal out, there were police all over the foyer as there had been fitting in the busy club. It reminds me of a Vegas set up really.
Overall a trendy place to enjoy without any kids and have fun time.

Certainly the way to re-invigorate an older hotel. This place sets a new level of cool for the coast.

As soon as you drive in the front entrance and see the old car with mounted surfboard - and the concierge and receptionist decked out in pseudo-60's hostess outfits - you know you've come to somewhere different.

The rooms are great - large and bright. Even the hallways have funky touches on each floor with funky couches and carpets.

If you can - make sure you visit the ground floor bar - it does get crowded at times. another must is the buffet in the restaurant - it has a lot of the usual fare - but then a lot of "wow" items not usually found at the usual SEQ all-in affairs.

Only a couple of streets back from the beach - and with the new tram now in place the transport situation for the car-less interstate visitors is much improved.
