We stayed for three nights and had a lovely view from our apartment. It was very spacious and clean. Huge bathroom. The enclosed balcony is a bit weird tho. The location was awesome, so close to the beach and shops. Would stayed there again.

The 2 bedroom apartments where very clean and spacious! They have two bathrooms which was a life saver..having our 2 12 year old girls with us! The rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels daily! The balcony was enclosed which made us feel at ease with the girls! Perfect location..close to everything! Will be back again. Hopefully soon! Phil... More

Overall was pretty happy with our stay at Q1- the rooms were very spacious and included spa baths. The hotel itself had good facilities including 2 outdoor pools and an indoor pool with spa. We also went up to the observation deck and had a nice high tea up there looking over all of surfers paradise :) was very nice

My partner and I went away for our anniversary and we were very excited to be staying at what we believed to be the well regarded Q1. However, we were very disappointed at how tired and unclean our apartment was for our stay. When we saw the frayed curtains, stained and torn couch and the Peninsula building right in the... More
