Very nice hotel. Rooms were lovely with a great view serviced daily. Having parking making a weekend away so much easier as we did a few day trips by car. And also had a late check out with no extra charge. Only disappointment was the skypoint breakfast as it was a very long wait for average food but the rest... More

Our visit was during the busy Easter season but you would never have known. Staff/Reception always available and easily accessible, facilities such as BBQ area and pools were never overcrowded and a wonderful area to finish the day. Housekeeping friendly and discrete, much appreciated. Highly recommend for a fantastic family break - spectacular views just top it all off.

Beautiful, sleek, spacious rooms with the very best view in town. The split queen bed into singles can be a little thin. I especially love staying here for the easy access to the beach close enough to the main drag and the amazing food at Longboards laidback eatery, the burgers here are simply amazing.

stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it, the rooms were amazing, spacious, comfortable, felt like a home away from home. I stay in a lot of hotels including most of the large chains and I would highly reccommend Q1 to everyone for all occassions.

Overpriced for the quality on offer. Upkeep on some rooms not to standard of a 4+ star property. Ours had a blue/green scum on the shower which i tried to clean but wouldn't come off. Also the shower head was not in proper functioning order, would not stay locked into place, water spat out in all directions, and was leaking... More

We were at the Q1 for Easter this year for my nana's 96th birthday. We paid a premium price I'm guessing for the time of year for a 2 bedroom ocean view. We did get a two bedroom but at the wrong end of the hotel so we had one window with a side view of the ocean. My reason... More
