“Breath of Fresh Air”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Well worth staying just for the breakfast and the margarita's. Spunky staff! The Kardashian theme in the rooms had mixed reactions - but then I just had another tequila and it all looked grey anyway! Japanese Restaurant - great food. Great views! Far enough away from centre of Surfers to avoid any trash!

I am not a reviewer in any sense of the word but feel obligated to give a big shout out to the QT Gold Coast.

I booked a weekend stay with my partner. We tried to book a suit however the suit was booked and we ere not able to. As a kind gesture the hotel had a bottle of champagne send to our room upon our arrival. It was a nice touch.

The hotel itself is nothing short of brilliant! i could not say a bad thing, great rooms, nice views, VERY clean, and the whole place has a unique vibe! As someone who has holidayed at the Gold coast for many years, it was unexpectedly breathtaking.

On my 2nd day in the hotel i received unfortunate news that A family member was very sick and i was called away. The hotel without hesitating refunded my final nights stay. It was very appreciated.

If you are planing a trip to the Gold Coast, Plan a trip to the QT.
It is fantastic.

Working travellers best avoid resting here as it's party central 24/7 with music loud enough to attract party goers and police alike. The dress "attitude" towards business attire , despite being a GHA/QT member, makes that drink at the end of the day unappealing and unwelcoming. Membership profiles and services weren't honoured and whilst the rooms were clean and comfortable with modern amenities, it's no use to you if you can't get a good nights sleep resulting in my relocation to another hotel.

Just got back from a weekend getaway with my partner. Straight up I have to say that the style and attention to detail at this place is amazing.
The hotel bills itself as a 5 star, but it's definitely not. The staff and style make this place stand out, but it could definitely use some love when it comes to maintenance. Balconies are in rough shape, baseboards in the room and around the minibar were a mess (in need of painting). A fresh coat of paint around the place would definitely freshen it up.
The restaurant bazaar is fantastic, food is diverse and delicious.
We were very disappointed with the Japanese restaurant on site, but we were told do just do the sushi nest time. The set menu was a definite let down.

Overall impressed by the place. Be sure to take the bikes out for a spin!

We were on level 10 with mountain and river views, as described we got good views of both.

Pros - close to the beach, easy check in/out process, clean rooms, good size, comfy king size bed, big tv, next to the new trams, very good full size mirror

Con - thin walls, no security on the lifts and with a busy resort with a few restaurants it would make the guest feel safer.

We will visit again.

Bright, colourful. Friendly staff. Really comfortable bed. Room was great, light and airy. Had room service and ordered pizza, with no great expectations. Probably the best pizza I have ever had and the drinks were ice cold. This hotel has a really 'happy' vibe and I would come back in a heart beat.

Stayed here for two nights and wish it was one. The reception staff on arrival was more interested in their conversation than helping us. Gen whatever's
The room was filthy within a strange smell between sweat or wet dog and vomit
At Bazzars the buffet was tired and needed replenishing so we asked for an omelette which arrived after 20 minutes. To be fair it was nice.
This is an old hotel with a face lift that has gone wrong
