I stayed at the QT hotel for a week, I have stayed here in the past but never reviewed it on trip advisor.
It’s a very funky/trendy sort of place and very popular but not really geared towards families. The hotel had an upgrade about 5 years ago so the rooms are reasonably clean and tidy. The bathrooms aren’t big and there is no bench space by the sink which is a pain but this is the only annoyance.
The breakfast restaurant is very popular and the buffet choices are never ending.
There is a bar that turns into a night club in the foyer which is nice for a drink but it does get very busy from people not staying in the hotel and on our last night when returning from a meal out, there were police all over the foyer as there had been fitting in the busy club. It reminds me of a Vegas set up really.
Overall a trendy place to enjoy without any kids and have fun time.

Certainly the way to re-invigorate an older hotel. This place sets a new level of cool for the coast.

As soon as you drive in the front entrance and see the old car with mounted surfboard - and the concierge and receptionist decked out in pseudo-60's hostess outfits - you know you've come to somewhere different.

The rooms are great - large and bright. Even the hallways have funky touches on each floor with funky couches and carpets.

If you can - make sure you visit the ground floor bar - it does get crowded at times. another must is the buffet in the restaurant - it has a lot of the usual fare - but then a lot of "wow" items not usually found at the usual SEQ all-in affairs.

Only a couple of streets back from the beach - and with the new tram now in place the transport situation for the car-less interstate visitors is much improved.

Stayed here recently for two nights. The rooms were nice and funky with a real beach vibe. Decor was different but nice and the overall feel was upbeat and fun. Overall I found it nice and it had free WiFI.

The restaurant is good and has a great buffet breakfast although it's not cheap.

Coffee was ok.

Stylish and chic. Not your average hotel.

Beautiful room with view to die for. Friendly and helpful staff. Really interesting hotel restaurant and bar. Unfortunately we only had one night on the Gold Coast, would love to have been able to truly chill out in the room for longer. All good!

Room Tip: a sea view is the only way to go!

I was expecting the average old hotel , well I soon changed that way of thinking. A staff member full of energy and dressed to match , welcomed us thus the door . Just offered to take our bags , but I was wowed . The theme of the hotel is bright and fun feeling . Check in was fast and also full of energy . Off to our room we went and enjoyed the decor along the way . I felt like I really was staying the beach with a sixties modern feel .
We had a standard room , and it was perfect . Clean , modern had very thing you need for a stay .
I normally avoid the Gold Coast for a stay away .changed my way of thinking now .all of the staff we came in contact with did 10 out 10 job . Please times my review by 8 , as this is how many rooms we had amongst our group. Room service spot on , thanks to the valet . I will be Also writing a review of bazaar restaurant . Stingray bar , before dinner drinks and after dinner drinks perfect service , heaps of staff on hand . Very Polite security staff advised us they were closing. Well priced . Management please thank your staff and keep up,the good work .
