A good quality hotel at a reasonable price.Close to the beach.It will be good when the light rail project is finished though.The beach needs more work in order to fix the erosion.The waterways are fantastic and the food is brilliant on the Gold Coast.

Loved this Hotel. Loved the concept / design. Very modern and clean. Staff were very friendly and attentive. It was quite noisy trying to sleep on a Friday night with the music levels in the bar still pumping until early hours although expected that in Surfers. Quite dis-appointed with the pre-authorisation policy of the hotel. I had booked and paid in advance online, on arrival to the hotel I was asked for a credit card to take a pre-authorisation (security deposit) of the full amount of my accommodation plus an additional $100.00, although quite steep..understandable for the Gold Coast. On depart I was quite upset to learn that I would now have to settle my account in full seperately than from the hotel doing a completion of my pre-authorisation money. When I questioned this (as I work in the industry) I was informed that they could send a letter to my bank to have my funds released...this never happened. I had to wait a further 10 days to have my pre authorised funds released back to my account. Quite dissappointing. Best breakfast I have ever had. Would stay again although will make sure I am more cashed up so I am not left short of spending money with the strict pre-authorisation policy at the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for your free lemonade!!

Great Hotel and a buffet on steroids. Fantastic choice and quality was good too. Need to go back sometime so I can get to try the dishes i missed. Just too full to try it all.
Also like to congratulate the bar staff on their honesty. It was my daughters birthday and she left her present sitting in the bar when we left. Some hours later she realised what had happened and rang the hotel. They had found her gift after we had left, logged all the items which included some jewellery left to her by her grandmother who had recently passed away, and we were able to collect it that night. Companies with a good culture instill pride in their employees and good things happen. Well done

A little on the expensive side....but very clean....service was great and the location was fabulous. Fabulous convention venue. A shame that most of Surfers looks like a war zone with the tram works in progress!!!!
(PS Didn't have spa or try breakfast....but had to put something before I could submit!!!)

Bright quirky hotel, staff friendly, interesting decor, comfortable beds, great location near beach.
Staff member Shana even swapped her own booking for Bazar so my family and I could go earlier or we would have missed out. If you are going to the coast Bazar for blast or dinner is not to be missed. Special orders were made to order, staff eager to please it was a real treat thank you.

Great location. Cool hotel with a very funky feel. Friendly staff, great service. Stingray bar very popular. Good coffee from the barista by reception. One block from the beach and 10 minutes walk from central Surfers. Underground parking ok at $8 per night.

Stayed here last week for a conference and travelling alone can be hit and miss. This place is a hit. Super-modern decor, spotlessly clean, 2 mins from the beach and 5 mins from centre of town. Room was spacious, bed was super-comfy, bathroom clean with great shower, bathrobes are fab - I want one! I didn't eat at any of the restaurants but the food provided at the conference was very impressive. Food-cart type style in several different locations, freshly cooked by friendly, engaging chefs made a real change to the norm. Pool area was really impressive, lots of loungers. Loved the complimentary lemonade in reception. Really nice touch and very tasty. Staff were all very helpful and just seemed to appear out of nowhere just when you need something which is my test of excellent service. Only criticism was that you have to pay for everything in the room. Even the bottled water by the bed! Still, I'd definitely spend my own $$ here and will certainly look at some of QTs other locations. Very impressed.
