This place is great. The pool area is fantastic with heaps of vibe. The views are truly incredible, we stayed in a penthouse and it was absolutely massive and very well appointed and the fit out is very new being a new building and all. I love the location, it's just near the beach. It's more unit style than hotel,... More

If the Gold Coast is your thing then Q1 is your place. Beaches, pools, cafes, restaurants, and attractions at Cavill Ave are all within walking distance. For the Casino, Pacific Fair shopping center & Gold Coast adrenaline attractions the light rail is at your doorstep. For other activities up and down the coast and the Hinterland region, Q1 provides free... More

We booked Q1 last minute after deciding to add a few Gold Coast days to our itinerary and were very satisfied with our choice. We stayed in a 3BR Executive on the 54th floor, which provided both great views and nice proximity to the beach, which was complemented by Q1's nice pool area. One should not compare Q1 to a...

After being told at 1330 that we were unable to check in until 1400, we parked our car and sat in pool area for the 30mins. At 1400 went back to reception to be told to take a seat and somebody will bring keys to you. It was well after the guaranteed check in time by the time we were... More

Dear Rebecca J, Thank you for your comments. Q1 Management advertises a 2pm check in time, I'm sorry that this was not available for you at this time which is a rarity as our Housekeeping department strives for efficiency and quality in terms of apartment cleanliness and presentation.

The apartment was contemporary and fabulous, had my first bath in years because of the view! Well appointed kitchen, bathrooms and laundry. Did I mention the view!, didn't want to go to bed at night as the Surfers' lights were so spectacular, could see the beach during the day. Staff were friendly and helpful, pool was excellent with plenty of... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights, we had a room on the 13th floor which still had great views. We loved the accommodation. We used the pool everyday and went to the gym which was clean and air conditioned. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. There was no issue with noise from surrounding... More

I will happily forgive tired and dated if the quality of service at an establishment is of a high standard. I'm no snob - I've enjoyed everything from 5 star glamour to dingy backpackers, but the one thing I always look for (irrespective of what I'm spending) is staff who are willing, friendly and take the time to offer the...

This was an ideal place to stay if you are after a bit of luxury. The rooms were clean and tidy, spacious with 360 degree great views of Surfers Paradise in a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment. Walking distance to everything that you need with great restaurants around the hotel.

We stayed on the 47th floor (two adults and three kids), after never staying at Q1 before, and we were VERY happy!!! It was on the expensive side, however it was well worth it!!! Huge rooms, comfortable, amazing view and so close to everything!!! We loved our stay and will definitely be going back!
