From the moment I entered QI the staff were friendly and offered superb customer service. My one bedroom ocean view apartment was magnificent - clean, modern spacious and views beyond belief. Great location - walk to everywhere in Surfers. I have told everyone about my experience. Will come again!

Finding out I paid so much for the 13th floor didn't make me too happy considering there were buildings in the way of the ocean view. But still could see it through the buildings. Everything was so clean and well presented. Being 6 months pregnant I was extremely happy to see there were plenty of pillows on the bed and... More

My partner and I travel A LOT for work and are used to certain standards in hotels, Q1 does not live up to these standards. To start we were greeted by a grumpy receptionist and checked in listening to another receptionist argue with a hotel guest. Room was nice and spacious. However, the only bedding supplied was an old camping... More

Dear Aaclittle, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor about your Q1 stay. I was concerned to read that your check-in experience was not a positive one and I apologise that the extra blanket that you requested was not delivered. Skypoint is a seperately managed business to the Resort and your suggestion that our... More

My boyfriend & I stayed here for 10 nights, in a one bedroom spa room. The room is spacious, gorgeous views of both the city and ocean very close to shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again!

After having paid for a room with an ocean view and specifically requesting an apartment on a higher floor with a good ocean view, we got a room with a city view (with a glimpse of ocean if you tilted your neck to the far left from the indoor balcony. We then called reception prior to unpacking and told them... More

This was a great place to stay. The room was very clean and spacious. Fantastic views from the 27th floor. It was great to have an enclosed balcony. The pools were fantastic. My 8-year old son and I just love our stay.

My daughters and I had a beautiful week at the Gold Coast. The weather was amazing. We had a two bedroom apartment at the Q1 resort. It was modern, spacious, clean and well equipped with all the modern appliances we needed. The view from our 13th floor ocean room was wonderful and we even got to see whales playing out... More

I travelled here on a last minute holiday with my 4 year old son. His request for his birthday was to stay in a big high tower to which we found Q1. Our request was met on the 43rd floor with an ocean view for a great price. Location is not noisy and our bed was almost as comfy as... More

My family and I stayed at Q1 for 15 nights. We loved it. Pool was excellent. Rooms were great. Parking was included in the price which was a nice surprise. Wifi was too expensive so we didn't use that. Overall it was good value and a good experience and we would stay there again.
