We booked this hotel with no real knowledge of the property. To our delight we discovered a slick hotel with amazing staff and a great sense of fun. If you want a cookie cutter hotel experience this is not the place for you. The entire place is whimsical and a touch gothic with enormous attention to detail. The rooms are very comfortable with their own nespresso machines.
WiFi is FREE and fast. - about time Australian hotels caught up with the rest of the world. Well done QT. The bathroom is decadent and funky - deep bath and dumper shower included.
Breakfast was included in our package and apart from a lot order one morning of our stay was superb. No shrivelled up bacon and dry scrambled eggs in sight here. The food was all prepared to order. Fantastic.
The bar was lively and fun with great bar staff. It really felt like it was the place to be with many non - guests in attendance.
Ok so there is no opera house out the window - personally I don't spend a lot of time staring out the window of my hotel - go for a walk if you need to see the harbour. The location is brilliant if shopping is on the agenda. Myer, DJs , Westfield and QVB are all abou 2 minutes away.
Overall a great experience despite challenging my stereotype of a 5 star hotel.
