“18th Birthday”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I stayed last weekend for my 18th birthday and it was the most amazing night ever! The bedroom looked just like the pictures on the website. The view was amazing. We had heating, tv, minibar. We had our music loud and it wasn't a problem. We went out to go have some drinks and when we came back they had a plate of macaroons with 'happy 18th birthday' written in chocolate! I will definitely be returning. Thank you qt for an amazing place to stay for my special night.

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner suite on the 9th floor room 908. When we woke up, beautiful daylight was shini...

Loved our stay at QT!
Friendly & accommodating staff. Comfy bed, quirky decorating in rooms.
Loved the staff uniforms too.
Excellent touch with complimentary lemonade in room and foyer also.
We will definitely be staying at QT again!!

The entrance is funky with lots of colour & sets the tone for the whole hotel. The staff are cool & dressed to suit the hotel. Enjoyed the whole vibe of the hotel, it's colourful, cheeky & fun. Bed was really comfortable & the shower was large with good water pressure. Would be happy to return.

From the moment you arrive, you immediately are welcomed by friendly, well dressed staff. The hotel has been decorated to fit into the surfers paradise environment, and has a certain style.
Check in was painless, the rooms are comfortable, well maintained, and the amenities are more than acceptable. Nearby beaches, tram station, and walking distance to Cavill Avenue.
Breakfast at Bazaar provides a wide selection within a wonderful setting. The bar service was a little slow due to the high custom by the guests.
The group dined at night for dinner at the Yamagen Teppenyaki which is located on site, and was well catered for during the day on Level 22 for the conference.
All in all an enjoyable stay, and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms with a beach view are in demand, although mountain view rooms would not dissappoint

Such a unique hotel with it's own retro style. Rooms are well made up and clean, lovely ocean views. Reasonably quiet in room considering how busy the hotel was, even with the bar on the ground floor which was full all night. The buffet breakfast at Bazaar is one of the best... should not be missed! Looking forward to visiting again.

I booked this hotel for tonight. I paid 332 dollars as a member for the room. I was very excited as It was my birthday and I absolutely loved QT Sydney, but from word go the Gold Coast QT was a disappointment. The staff service was at best minimal the car park was in major need of TLC the lift made horrible clacking noises and then when I asked for a room away from the lift we got the room closest to the lift. The room had the worst paint job I've ever seen in a hotel the paint was also peeling off and the furniture looked like it came from the salvos (not that I have a problem with the salvos, but when your paying 332 dollars a night you expect better.) I tried to get to like it so I decided to pour a bath and when I got to the bath there was still hair in the bath and when I told my partner he advised me there was also hair in the sink and that then nespressos milk frother was damp and smelt mouldy. Within 15 minutes we went to reception and asked for a full refund I would never go back! This hotel would have been fine if I paid 100 dollars or less but it's price was far more.

We stayed at the QT recently after getting a pretty good deal on the hotels website. Loved the style and atmosphere, felt very relaxed. Great position, easy walk into Cavill Ave or the tram stop is just over the road if you want to go a little further. The rooms were nice and clean. Loved the big shower, so much better than the shower over bath you get in even the 5 star hotels. The only thing we found a bit disappointing was the cleanliness of the lounge area outside the bar. We wanted to have a quiet drink the afternoon we arrived and all the couches and carpets looked pretty grubby, obviously lots of split drinks from the bar patrons but it put us off relaxing there for more than one drink. Overall great hotel. Would recommend if you want something nice but not stuck up!

Room Tip: We didn't think we would be around much to enjoy an ocean view room so didn't spend the extr...
