Me and my partner stayed for the 3 nights as a surprise holiday away to the Gold Coast, Q1 has perfect location really close to the main precinct of Surfers Paradise, views from level 11 were very good despite facing inland. Two outdoor pools which were quite warm, and then a spa and indoor pool was very nice as well.... More

Amazing views! And very accommodations for a newborn baby with great size apartments and great kitchen facilities! The only thing was it was quote was quite windy so a bit noisy in the room , but would not have cared if I didn't have a baby. Great teppanyaki restaurant next door, wish it had a bigger more private spa though.

I stayed at Q1 along with four other families as we were there for a wedding. The Bride and Groom had a lovely spacious 2 bedroomed apartment with breath taking views. They had used a Groupon voucher but were not given the promised wine on arrival. The floor hadn't been vacuumed very well and the couch was broken. The Bride's... More

Dear habbie200, Thankyou for your review. Unfortunately, you did not stay at Q1 Resort and Spa as we do not use Groupon vouchers. You checked in and stayed with a private agent who does not represent Q1 Resort in any capacity whatsoever and frankly, I am not surprised that you received substandard service. Next time you stay in Surfers Paradise,... More

Great location, rooms are all lovely, views all spectacular! The staff are what makes this place wonderful too though, always cheerful and helpful, always! Now, the price, well if you want value for money then you get OVER and above VALUE.

The modern rooms are gorgeous. I definitely would recommend to anyone wanting an amazing stay on the coast. Close to everything including transport, beaches. Eatery' s and tourist attractions. Great value for money. Loved that the balconies are closed for extra safety.
