First l would like to say, this is NOT a reflection of the Q1 building, BUT of the apartment 2701 we stayed in which we rented from a private owner and has his own staff. We decided to rent an apartment at the Q1, given its reputation of a 4* the one we needed was privately owned, didn't think it... More

We stayed at Q1 while my daughter was recovering from surgery. We requested an early check in as we were checking out of another hotel in Surfers & into Q1. We were most surprised we when we arrived that we got our request. We booked a 1 bedroom ocean view apartment. I was a little disappointed that we were only... More

My family got there on time, but was told to wait for 20mins. No wine was given, dishwasher didn't work the whole time (stayed for 5 days), didn't receive the best service, but great view, excellent location.

The one bed apts were offered unserviced and it was not an issue to throw the towels in washing machine and dryer daily and run the vacuum over the floor.. We moved from a one bed sea... More

I was so anxious about our stay here, after reading so many below-par reviews on TA.. but I really think those people must have been staying in rooms not owned by the resort part of Q1... everything was flawless. The check-in was great, and staff continued to be super friendly and helpful the entire time (except for 1 chick on... More

The best thing about this Hotel is definately the view. Breakfast for $19 was not worth the money. Buffet breakfast at the Surf Club was better ! Food & service at Teppinyaki Restaurant was fantastic. In room spa was basically a big bath. You can get better value for money in other Surfers Paradise Hotels.

We stayed at Q1 for two nights as a weekend getaway on the Gold Coast and had a fantastic stay. It's easy to drive into the driveway and hop out quickly to check-in. Check-in was easy and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Parking under the building was also a breeze. Our one bedroom apartment was spacious and modern,... More
