Well done to the QT in Surfers, you saved our holiday!
After having the misfortune of staying at the Coolamon Apartments, and leaving 2 nights early due to the excessively rude Manager and the place being so dirty, we found the QT - what a relief.
Explained our predicament to the staff on Front Desk, and she quickly gave us a very good rate and let us view the room before committing.
The place is very clean and tidy, has brilliant, attentive staff, who are friendly and are only to willing to help with any questions we had.
The Stingray bar was great, and although we didn't eat at the restaurant, we had a look and kicked ourselves for not trying it - definitely will next time!

Room Tip: We had a room looking towards the mountains, so cannot comment on any others. Ours was great, with nice, unobstructed views.

Hi Peter C,

Oh no! Boo to the mean (I assume) man. There is nothing worse than a grumpy bum when you are trying to have a blast on the coast!

Thanks for letting ups know that we gave you the right launch pad for a successful holiday. we really appreciate you letting us know. Oh god, how hideous would it have been coming all the way from Wellington to have a shocker of a place to stay on your holiday.

QT certainly lived up to my expectations. I read the great reviews on Tripadvisor and had a good look at their website before I decided to book the "2 night special" with breakfast for 2 and dinner 1 night at Bazzar which was great value for money! I don't know where to start as we loved everything about this place - the amazing decor and attention to detail, the retro yet current contemporary feel, the beachy theme. The homemade lemonade stand and treats on display at Fixx cafe were a great touch. I loved the vibe at Stingray and the great casual menu. The staff were all very helpful friendly and looked great in there uniforms. Bazzar was amazing and definately the best buffet I've ever had! The place was vast yet the attention to detail in all of the common areas, restaurants, day spa, cafe, lobby, lifts & the rooms never ceased to amaze me.The other thing which I noticed was how I felt at home after returning from a day out. We ended up staying an extra 2 days we loved it so much!

Hi Sandra T,

We love the Two night stand package! That's an absolute favourite amongst our staff members too when they are looking to getaway from QT Sydney or QT Port Douglas. Such great value!

Oh another beautiful review about the staff. It is such a happy place! Andrew, our General Manager, is one of the happiest men alive so it really filters down through the staff.

We would love to take care of you again.

My partner DJ and I had the good fortune to stay at QT's for my birthday and Valentine's on the 16th February...we were greeted by a lovely young man Tom who organised our reservation... he had only been working for QT's for 6 weeks but he was very informative and enthusiastic...Well done QT for your staff
Unfortunately the weather was not the best but we had ocean views which was wonderful and we loved the little meringues.....nice touch

We couldn't go to the night buffet cos we had a prior engagement but we did pop into Stingrays at the end of our night and had a G&T for moi and a beer for Darren... loved our bed.... the next morning we went down to the brekky buffet which is always such a treat

You can't go past QT's.....the location and service is just fantastic but all good things must come to an end and we had to get in our car and drive 10 mins up the road

We will be back soon QT and a big Thank You for our wonderful stay

PS Just loved those green velvet high backed chairs in the foyer

Room Tip: Try Bazaars for dinner and brekky you will not be disappointed

Stayed here over the xmas/new yrs break and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! QT has hit the mark on every aspect - location, service and quality. I booked it as a priority member (free to sign up!) and got a 10% discount plus extra perks such as late check out.

Location is fantastic - about a 3 minute walk to the beach and less than 10 mins to walk to surfers paradise bvld and Chevron Renaissance centre (where you'll find all your shopping and restaurant needs). The bus station that has bus services direct to the theme parks is also a 5 min walk away, very convenient! A very friendly and safe area around at night as well - the strip along the beach to and from the hotel is always busy with tourists and families.

Unlike most big chain hotels that has the same bland corporate décor and colours - QT has a 1940's beach theme which resonates perfectly with the surfer's paradise beach area. The bright colours, funky decor and furniture (some which can be purchased directly from the hotel gift shop) always put me in a festive mood no matter how tired I got from a big day out.

The rooms are spacious and clean with a super comfortable bed. Room has very useful amenities (such as the complimentary beach thongs and bag that I forgot to pack!), and a very tempting mini bar that was overflowing with goodies! There's always fresh homemade lemonade at the reception area which you can sip by the pool (which also has a bar that's open in the afternoon). There is a great buffet restaurant Bazaar which has an amazing variety of seafood, Asian and modern Australian. On a Friday/Saturday night the stingray bar is filled with a lively (and ridiculously good looking!) crowd. There's also a Teppanyaki restaurant and cafe located near the pool which I unfortunately didn't get a chance to try.

Super friendly staff who not only dress the part (love the uniforms!), but also provide fantastic service. Very knowledgeable about the area and they go out of their way to help and engage in conversation! Right down to the housekeeping and restaurant staff - they're all just lovely people :)

Thanks for a great stay! Already planning our next stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level for some great balcony views Sign up as a free member to get discount, drink vouchers and complimentary late check out Must have dinner at Bazaar!

Hi Sandy D,

Yay! Another 5 star getaway. Thanks so much for taking the time to review the property, and especially taking so much time to run through your stay and share with travellers where we hit the right marks!

I want to say a big thanks for your kind notes to our staff. We really appreciate it. They work their little behinds off and it's awesome to get feedback directly for them.

We were there in one the newly renovated king rooms with a sea view and were truly lovely. The entire hotel is very modern looking. The breakfast every morning had a vast spread and was lovely. The location also is good , within walking distance to all the pubs and eateries. Overall a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Choose a See view room, its worth it
