“Will be coming back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Everything about this hotel makes me want to come back. The retro fit out gives off a very fun and welcoming vibe. We checked in and got a free upgrade to an ocean view room. It was awesome waking up to that sunrise. The venues downstairs were also great. Breakfast at the restaurant was quite unique and I loved every bit of it. Dinner is served in the same style - just make sure you come on an empty stomach! The bar on the ground floor is a great way to unwind after a day out exploring. The hotel is a short walk away from the life of GC, the beach, bus stops and car hire. Looking forward to coming back.

Really great hotel! Everything about it is cool and easy. My room was amazing. The food in the stingray bar is delicious. I wouldn't bother with the dinner buffet but the breakfast is great! Good location and fab pool, spa and facilities. I'll be back!

My husband and I stayed at the QT for our wedding anniversary, opulent room, thick white towels, deep bath, fabulous view of the ocean at Surfers. Staff dressed in bright beach gear, and the food was so unbelievably great. We are going to be regulars

Stayed here for 3 nights, great view of the ocean from my room and the bed was really comfy. The bathroom was ok but the vanity is really small, no-where to put your stuff and the faucet is really awkward. The funky retro update of the hotel is cool but I think if you were coming here to relax you might find it a bit full on, there is stuff everywhere. Staff seemed helpful and friendly and location was good, close to the boardwalk.

One of our favorite places to stay on the Gold Coast. The rooms have such a funky vibe and whether your in the ocean view or mountain view they both offer great scenery. The breakfast is awesome! (Mostly why we chose to stay here) overall fantastic!

Without doubt this was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at.

From its quirky retro Gold Coast feel and décor to great-looking staff members with superb customer service skills, this place has it all.

Perfect place for a couple’s weekend away without kids.

You have to try the buffet breakfast! It is to die for!

We booked into this hotel for 12 days for our honeymoon. I wish I had done more research before I booked this. They have little to no customer service. We booked a package deal, room with ocean view, breakfast and parking, along with welcome drinks. (which we are still waiting for). The disaster started from check in, and got worse from there. In room 1 toilet leaked, airconditioner broke, water pipe banged all night. Room 2, airconditioner broke, TV broke, bathroom dirty. Room service appalling, had to ask for a face cloth every day. Manager said he would sort this out but did not do so. Their bar turns into a nightclub on weekends, so very loud base till early hours of morning, lots of drunks in lobby and out the front, were guests have to go to smoke, also have to fight your way through them when you come back from a night out. Manager did nothing about complaints. Did offer if we came back a free night, which we politely turned down, also gave us a voucher for free drink, but them closed the bar for private function, so could not use voucher. King bed is two single mattress put together, not a comfortable place to cuddle while on your honeymoon. Also there is a hum that you can hear all night, and with the new trams you can hear the bell they ring at the station within the rooms. They do have balcony's but if you are not a fan of sitting amongst months odd bird poop you are forced to stay inside. I have photo's of everything stated here but I don't seem to be able to upload them here. Just DONT DO IT. Katie in the breakfast restaurant is outstanding :)

Room Tip: None that I am aware of

Hi ReneeLisa BT,

Thanks kindly for your review.

There a lot for us to digest in there as you really did not enjoy your stay, so we will comb through it with the team and make any changes that are necessary to reconcile your points.
