Room was very nice and modern. They accommodated our bedding needs with 4 single beds. Staff at the desk were helpful and the rooms were kept very clean. Bathrooms were spacious. The balcony was a decent size with a large table and chairs, great place for relaxing. The location was great, right in the heart of surfers but just far... More

The bathroom and whole apartment had really nice lighting. It didn't feel dark and gloomy or too bright as everything was white! Location was great. Stayed then when schoolies was on but you...

Dear Livvya230, Thank you for your review, I 'm pleased that you had a wholly positive experience at Q1 and that the Schoolies didn't trouble you. They were a pretty good bunch this year. Two TVs can certainly help to avoid some arguments over what to watch and I'm glad you found this to be convenient too. I look forward... More

Q1 oozes luxury from the moment you step into the foyer, The pool's are fabulous and the rooms are spacious and beautifully clean cut. The room have everything you might need (With the exception of Free WiFi, I am puzzled as to why an ~$200/night accommodation cant afford to provide WiFi, but anyway...) Our stay was very pleasant with the... More

I recently stayed at Q1 with my boyfriend during schoolies week and to our surprise it was all VERY well organised! As we were not with schoolies the front counter were nice enough to give us residence wrist bands to allow us to bypass any unneccissary schoolies security. The room we had was amazing, even though it was only a... More

Schoolies week was slightly ruined because I stayed at Q1. The rules of no visitors and no excessive amounts of alcohol for even an 18 year old such as myself were just ridiculous. Other hotels were allowing visitors and alcohol for everybody at all hours of the day while Q1 security were just being uptight. All because some people can't... More

I enjoyed my stay there. Very beautiful hotel inside your room and downstairs facilities and shops. The staff provide high quality service and are very kind and outgoing people. My advice however is to not go during schoolies :)
