“Spacious, Clean & Tidy”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

After having 4 night stay at Q1 we'd have no hesitation to recommend it to others. While we were only on floor 9, the views were still nice and no road noise.

The apartment was clean, tidy and very spacious.

We stayed at the Q1 for 9 nights and are leaving this morning. The hotel room feels so homely and we don't want to leave! We got a 1 bedroom ocean view and it was a great deal. Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful hotel, lovely pool areas, spacious and modern room with an amazing view and incredible day spa. There is a beach about 50 meters down the road, a short stroll to Cavil Ave and delicious restaurants all within 50 meters (Longboards Cafe, the teppanyaki restaurant downstairs, Alfresco across the road). We have no complaints, love the Q1!

My parents came to Australia almost a year ago and I googled where to stay at the Gold Coast and by chance happened to come across the Q1. It had good reviews and was really reasonably priced for all of us to stay (4 adults, 1 child, 1 infant). The view from the ~53th was spectacular and our 2 night stay was wonderful. The location is the greatest part and the beach is just right there. My mother said that was the nicest place she has stayed in her life.

My mother-in-law recently came to Australia (5/14) and we decided to go back to the Gold Coast and stay. Since there were fewer people this time, I thought it would be too expensive. Surprisingly, the Q1 had a special with no room service and this $20 Tuesday package, so the deal was too good to be true and we went back with no hesitation.

The indoor pool was great since it is cooling down this time of year, the beach is always spectacular, the room was on the 13 level and still didn’t disappoint. There is always enough room in the 2 bedroom apartments for us (3 adults, 2 children). Parking is always available and all amenities are there or very close. My mother-in-law was very impressed and she was happy to stay on the 13th floor as she is scared of heights. She said that she wants to bring a group of her friends from Japan to stay there.

On checkout, we didn’t have a VIP room or VIP service, but we were given a complimentary bottle of red wine. I couldn’t believe how nice that was and how nice everyone there is.

On our recent trip to the Goldcoast my husband and I were so impressed by our surrounds it is now the only place on the Goldcoast we would stay. The Q1 is impressive and stunning and the décor was beautiful, we felt so relaxed and comfortable in our surroundings it made our time away from our busy lives so enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and everything we could possibly need was at our fingertips!

Room Tip: Choose an ocean view and the higher up you are the quieter it is.

Last minute decision but the perfect one, what a spectacular view. It was like I was in a bubble on top of the world looking down on our busy world! But most of all I was with my amazing hubby who always plans the most romantic get always, who makes sure I feel like a queen. The Q1 is the ultimate staying adventure not only can you relax in the comfort of a self contained high rise apartment you can experience the most unimaginable views across our never ending horizon. But to beat all the odds it's everyone's individual experience that make this pleasurable stay an unforgettable 1 every time. It's the place to be when visiting the Gold Coast, experience it for yourself just once and you wont be disappointed believe me.

Room Tip: Ocean View no matter what!!!

q1 has become one of our favourite places in AUS! We were here last year and stayed at 41st floor (from memory) - loved it soo much back then, we went back this year. This time around though, we booked the sub-penthouse and that was an awesome choice.
If in GC, you have to stay at q1. If you're not staying here, might as well not go at all.
We were here for 5 nights and every day/night was fantastic. Now, since we've been here before, we know this place. Lunch was always outsite - dinner and drinks always in the apartment. The views are quite easily one of the best in AUS. Only minutes to the beach by foot, this place is perfect for - 'have a heavy brekky, run to the beach, come back, jump in the pool (heated was heated and the spa was pumping as well), have a juice at the longboards, go do the theme parks, come home - grab some dinner and wine (BWS downstairs) and feel awesome about your life!). In short, we had a great time!
Can't wait to come back guys!

Room Tip: Go as high as possible. There's a woolworths close by, grab all your eggs and stuff from there...
