Overall we had a fabulous time. The room was amazing & comfortable & spacious. Serviced daily which was great. There were a couple of things for improvement. We weren't orientated to the facilities available to us in the motel - we just had to figure it out in our own. This was disappointing & frustrating. The toilets in the lower... More

The room was a good size with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom was too small. Excellent views. Onsite bars were good, especially the bar with an amazing variety of coffee. A bit pedantic in their early morning cafe - they wouldn't let us sit down if we just bought a coffee (had to buy a breakfast), even though the place... More

Dear Doghouse_Reilly, Thanks for your recent review and I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. I was concerned to read that your perception of value for money was not as you expected, Q1 Resort often advertise specials on our website and actively compete on price with simillar properties. The cafe is a seperately managed business to the Resort... More

Absolutely beautiful hotel. Wanted to book another holiday there as soon as I returned. Service was fantastic, security was top class, it was a home away from home - only better!!!! Loved it! Views were out of this world. We stayed on the 43rd floor in a corner apartment and had gorgeous views from every room. Definitely a hotel to... More

I was here on the weekend just for the 1 night and was a bit disapointed. You would think for such a popular, expensive and a hotel that prides itself on being the tallest in Australia you would think they would have immaculate rooms. We got a spa package which included the 1 night stay, chocolate and wine on arrival,... More

Beautiful apartment on a 20+ floor with "ocean view" was spoilt by the fact that the windows were so filthy you couldn't see out of them properly. Obviously the glass hasn't been cleaned in several months. Very frustrating and it spoilt what would have otherwise been a memorable stay.
