While we loved the restaurant experience at both Bazaar and Yamagen, there were some parts of our experience that were disappointing and unfortunately out-weighed the good. Like I said great restaurant experience - except for our first breakfast when we waited for some time to get a table, only to not be able to find anyone to take a coffee... More

3rd time back to QT on the Gold Coast and still love it. This time we were in town for a friends 40th Birthday that was held in the very cool bar "Stingrays", which is without date the best bar on the Gold Coast. We had a blast at the party, food and service devine. We met the Venue Manager,... More

This is one fun, funky place to stay. My wife and I have stayed here several times over the past few years and the buffet breakfast is the best. Lemonade on arrival is a nice touch. The only criticism; and we'd made this comment for our last two stays: the mattress is like a big lumpy marshmallow, and not in... More

Everything about this hotel makes me want to come back. The retro fit out gives off a very fun and welcoming vibe. We checked in and got a free upgrade to an ocean view room. It was awesome waking up to that sunrise. The venues downstairs were also great. Breakfast at the restaurant was quite unique and I loved every... More

Really great hotel! Everything about it is cool and easy. My room was amazing. The food in the stingray bar is delicious. I wouldn't bother with the dinner buffet but the breakfast is great! Good location and fab pool, spa and facilities. I'll be back!

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

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... More

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!
