“Don't stay here for more than 2 days”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

At arrival I did find the staff clothing/attire very young and trendy. We stayed here for 5 nights over the Christmas period. Firstly, at check in no one was at the door to help us with our luggage, certainly not what I would expect for a 5 star hotel. We had an ocean view room, so the sea breeze at night was very night. I find the air conditioning in our room wasn't working too well for us. Our linen was not changed until the 3rd nights, which I find really annoying especially with the hot weather. The gift shop was very tiny. All the hotel staff all looked like young teenagers, I think the hotel is targeting younger guests. Location is close to the beach, nice 1.5 block stroll to the beach and a mini supermarket.

I find this hotel swimming facility a little bit too small in comparison to other hotels we've stayed at in the GC. Overall, I would not recommend staying here for more than just 2 nights, beyond that you would get sick of the breakfast buffet and poor hotel facilities to keep you entertained.
A nice trendy, very young & hip hotel.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room. Don't stay here for more than 2 nights if you have children with you - n...

Whenever I talk about this QT hotel, I always rave about the beautifully decorated rooms, great views from your room, wonderful staff, free fresh lemonade upon arrival (nice little touch!), and above all: Bazaar. The food at Bazaar was fantastic and the petit dessert selection was beyond amazing. The hotel oozes with warmth and modernity. It even boasts a cute little store on the ground floor. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Gold Coast!

I've stayed at the QT a couple times and had a great experience both times. The hotel has a fun, modern, yet 50's burlesque feel. The outfits are exceptionally cute. And I liked that it wasn't your standard hotel. Views were exceptional. Room was quiet. Amenities carried forward their fun, sexy theme, even with the chocolate bars in the room looking like something from a red light district vending machine (in a good way). The buffet breakfast at the Bazaar is definitely worth doing. Tons of options and all quite good (and I am rarely a fan of buffets). And I love the vintage car and moped parked outside. QT has done well with their theme, and that's why I loved it so much.

I stayed here for 3 nights during a conference and had a very pleasant experience. The atmosphere for the conference was brilliant - the best we've had in the 4 years it's been running. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was on the eighth floor and saw a beautiful sunset.

I wish all travel was this relaxing and carefree

The bazaar interactive restaurant was amazing. The staff were all fantastic, especially Shannon and Cara who directed to the amazing head chef Trent who created an phenomenal feast that met our vegan diet needs with excitement - we have never experience such an positive response to our dietary requirements.
Trent was more than happy to do all again.
We had the most amazing time at QT and will defiantly be returning.
Thanks for the wonderful time :)

It was an absolute delight to stay here. We visited when it was very busy and from the first point of contact with concierge, through to check-in, it was all amazingly simple and easy process. All staff gave the impression that they were actually there to serve. All staff were very polite and professional. The furnishings in the foyer and the rooms decor was just amazing and this hotel re-sets the benchmark as far as what to expect in a resort/hotel on the Gold Coast. Position is everything and it is three blocks from teh Caville Aveneue rat race and only a block to a patrolled beach. I can't speak highly enought about QT Gold Coast as it exceeded all of my expectations.

Room Tip: For sea views, ask for a room facing the Pacific Ocean - having said that the views to the west and...
