I stayed at the QT for two nights with a friend on the $500 for two nights deal which included breakfast for two on both days and a dinner for two at Bazzare. The hotel itself has been renovated really well, very unique design compared with other gold coast hotels - it has a very uplifting feel to it and... More

Stayed here for a conference this week. Staff were wonderful, room was lovely, the bed and pillows and extra blankets were the softest I have ever had in any hotel! And the towels were so clean, they squeaked! The facilities were excellent, food - wonderful. I will definitely be back, it really was an experience!

I stayed here for a conference. The hotel is so well decorated and has a really great theme. The rooms were gorgeous and immaculate (the whole hotel was immaculate) and I have never slept in such a comfortable bed!! The staff service across all areas (concierge, bar, coffee lounge etc) was of an excellent standard - friendly and helpful. The... More

Lovely stay, QT is really at home in Surfers Paradise. Great to have so many unique touches which make this a destination hotel. Wonderfully presented, clean rooms (bathroom could have been better attended to), cute bathroom with wonderful huge shower. Fantastic to have a twin room with 2 queen size beds (not doubles). Staff were exceptionally busy at the times... More

"If you're gonna compare a Hanzo sword, you compare it to every other sword ever made... that wasn't made by Hattori Hanzo." - Kill Bill Volume 2 Pretty much an accurate way to describe the QT brand as a whole after staying in my 2nd hotel now (after Sydney). Again the QT has managed to re-invent itself and stands both... More

This is an excellent hotel. Funky, modern décor. Clean, friendly, well priced, with very comfortable beds. Large screen TVs in rooms, great mini bar and fantastic views (ask for ocean view room). Great coffee machine in room. Excellent in house restaurant (Bazaar) and a walk from other great surfers paradise restaurants. Cant go wrong. Will definitely go back again.

This was my first stay with the QT Hotel Chain. Overall, the experience of the hotel itself was good - lovely surroundings and decor. I attended the spa and the treatments I had there were also fantastic. However, most of the reception staff were an absolute nightmare (and I say most, as there were a couple of really nice people...
