QT was a great weekend away..Food was awesome in the Japanese & Bazzar.
Rory Switzer our host @ Bazzar was fantastic... Great service hard to find! Room was nice. Beds very comfy. Drinks at Stinray were very good. Lunch in Reception was well priced healthy & tasty.

Room Tip: Don't miss Bazzar!

I stayed overnight with two friends for a fashion week show. Three in a room was not cramped. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Loved the early 60s surf theme and quirky but useful design. Food was good and reasonably priced. One street from beach unfortunately hemmed in by light rail construction at present.

Love the QT hotels, and this one does not disappoint. It's got the trendy über cool feel about it, but it also has a gold coast beach feel. Lots of colour, model looking staff in beach style uniforms and they are very friendly and helpful. Our mountain view room on the 20th floor was amazing, the rooms are spacious and the decor ties in to the rest of the hotel trendy beach theme. Beds were very comfortable, especially the pillows. Breakfast is excellent, so much to choose from and we also ate at the Japanese restaurant one night which we all gave the thumbs up. The location is excellent, an easy walk to cavil avenue, but far enough away to feel like you are in the 'nicer' part of surfers. We used some of the hotel cruise bikes to ride to fisherman's wharf, played tennis on the courts and swam in the beach, less than a 5 minute walk away. This is a great place to stay, new, local, all the facilities are very good, secure parking down stairs and it just feels and looks different from the other high rises in the area. Definitely worth it.

Stayed at the QT for an anniversary. The entrance with its retro fashion wearing staff, fresh welcoming lemonade or iced tea and great decor made us feel like we had entered a special place. We tried out two of the restaurants, including the acclaimed Bazaar, and throughly enjoyed both. Staff were very attentive and fun and ensured our experience was memorable. The room, a suite, was spacious, gorgeously decorated and with the most amazing views from all rooms of the coast and the glittering lights of the Surfers Paradise strip. An entertaining bathroom scene! Attention to detail (loved those satin bathrobes!) and a fresh and funky approach to nostalgia ensures our passing on our recommendations for this hotel for both couples and family stays. (Now who designed those gorgeous uniforms?????)

We stayed at the QT for our holidays for only one night (King Suite Ocean View) on our way from SYD to BRN and then off to Hamilton Island. We came with our kids this time to show them this great Hotel where we stayed before (Nov 2012). It was great to be back at the QT/ Great views, great rooms and very clean and pleasing. We love the design and the funky twist of the whole hotel design. I will def come back and already booked out next weekend getaway for SYD at the QT in SYD. Highly recommend this hotel to others. Love this place!!!

Stayed here for a week with a large golfing group. Very obliging staff, nice rooms, GREAT beds and as good a breakfast as I have had anywhere in the world. Australia must be the last country on the planet that charges for Wi Fi, sadly, QT is no exception. This is also the only hotel in the world I have stayed at that does not provide complimentary coffe in the kitchenette. All to try and sell you a pod at $1.50 a pop. They also blotted their copybook by trying to sell warm beer at a private function. If not for these 3 issues I would have rated the place 5 stars instead of 4.

Room Tip: Lifts are noisy, ask for a room away from the lifts.

I went here for a work related conference and it was a lot of fun. The whole feel of the motel, from the moment we drove into the driveway was pretty fantastic. I stayed here for 5 days, and I think the only gripe I really had was the initial check in where the girl that checked me in was a bit narky. After that all the other staff I met were awesome, happy and friendly - the bar/cafe/restaurant all served amazingly great looking and tasting food and the spa was freaking amazing, as were the lovely ladies there. I really enjoyed my time here and loved all the little quirks that made it a different and fun place to 'work' for a few days.
