We stayed at the Q1 for five nights in a 1BR Spa with hinterland views. Our experience was mixed, so I'll start with the good parts. The room was large and spacious, quite nice for the extended time we were there for. The spa bath was brilliant and the spa downstairs by the lap pool was even better (we weren't... More

Best views on the Gold Coast. Close to everything in surfers paradise. Well equipped, clean apartment. Our aircon had a smell when we first arrived but was quickly fixed once staff were aware. Decent on site recreation facilities, tram stops right out the front. Beach is a stone throw away. Staff were professional and welcoming, I'd recommend anyone to stay... More

Where to start! The room was spectacular!!! It was very surreal being able to wake up to the sun on your face and the view of the ocean being the first thing you see! Very spacious bathrooms, great open kitchen and enough room for our family of 4 + our baby. Even you can even bring yourself to leave the... More

We took our 3 children to Surfers Paradise for a family holiday. Q1 was great, pool, spa, sauna, gym, restaurant and views to the ocean, hills and town. A quick walk to the malls was another bonus. Would definatly recommend this to family and friends.

I don't think I would ever pay that amount of money to stay there again. It's more of a residential building the a holiday place. Dishwasher didn't work, took 3 days for housekeeping to do the dishes, shower was broken, bed sounded like it was going to break every time we rolled over. Bedrooms need seperate blinds to the rest... More

Being a group of 5 independent adults, our combined budget allowed for us to splash out on a sub penthouse suite at the "luxury" Q1 resort. But it was far from luxury. The views were amazing. We were on the 50-something-th floor in a side facing apartment. The views went forever!!! And you were so high up there was very... More

I loved this place, we were on the 38th floor looking out onto the ocean, it's so high up just on that floor, the apartment was very large for the 4 of us, I could be picky and complain about a few small things but they had no effect on my trip, overall location is great, the cold rock ice... More

This is the fifth time staying at Q1. It is hard to find affordable accommodation for a family of seven close to Surfers Paradise.
