“Brekky”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Can only comment on the breakfast, in essence, unlike many hotels that charge an absolute fortune for an average start to the day this place was very well priced and put the quality into the meal and not the trimmings.
Attentive staff and so easy to stay in house instead of wandering the street to find something

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

I ended up here for dinner with a friend after being too late to get a quick bite to eat elsewhere, and what a find. The bar and restaurant were buzzing at around 9am and had to wait for a table - which was very easy to do as the bar is a great place to people watch. We both had the tuna steak and a dessert and we both thought it was certainly the best tuna we had ever had, and one of the best meals we have both had for a long time. A great find for a hotel restaurant - but would suggest booking if you are going later in the week.

“Great meal, but very loud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

The food is great, the service good but don't try and talk to your companions as the restaurant is so loud you can't hear the person next to you.

Have the franchise doughnuts for dessert - unbelievable! Be warned what they say is for one person will feed 2-4 people.

“A gem at the QT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is the onsite restaurant at QT, very convenient location, trendy and has a great feeling. Menu and beverage selection is first class and the breakfast is also quick and gourmet.

“Rubbish overpriced food ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Sadly although ambience wonderful .. The Food could have come from a roadhouse and tasted better .. Fish pie with floury tasting prawns and cheese .. $42 for the pleasure .. $14 for bowl of iceberg and pepper .. Really disappointing food .. Great service though !
Qt definitely a place to stay but not to dine !
