You used to be cool QT

We have always loved the QT until this stay. Staff don't have the energetic vibe they used to, the bed actually sunk in the middle and squeaked when we moved, facilities are getting tired, our room wasn't even ready by 2pm when we rung at 10am asking for an earlier check in which they put us on priority for. Such a shame, our stay was for a very special occasion and we thought we could count on QT not to disappoint.

Nice enough hotel close to the beach.

Great location. Excellent dining and drinking options on premises. Rooms and facilities were pleasantly as expected. Some mould found in the bathrooms how ever and a little aesthetic wear and tear. Checking in was dreadful. Could definitely do with some attention. No concierge in site. Room was late. Completely drinks were offered how ever, drinks are pointless if No one wants to help with all your luggage. No orientation of the hotel was given and we were left to ask directions. Disappointing service. Messy and disorganized staff communications. Stay was pleasant besides first impressions

Great hotel, light rail is a short stroll away and is otherwise only 5 minutes from the heart of Surfers. Rooms are in really great condition and the foyer / pool / restaurant area is nice and relaxing.

Quirky modern adult comfort

Pros: I loved the modern quirkiness and decor. I didn't feel like I was in a hotel that could be in any state, it was unique & wasn't solely about families
Cons: Upgrade the 10 year old furnishings
Location: I loved location because it was not far to walk to main strip of Surfers and was away from the noise
I loved staying in this hotel because all the other Surfers Hotels made me feel like another number and catered more for families. I felt I could relax without noisy children. There were children at the pool but i didn't mind because I didn't feel like It was about families I could still relax. I enjoyed the modern food and bar were diffidently a highlight and on a par with Melbourne.

4 out of 5
Pros: Different Spa Staff room
Cons: Very average food at The Bazaar buffet, not good value for the price
Location: Close to the beach
Great hotel for a weekend away. Loved my room on level 20, great room with a mountain view. The bed was really comfortable but pillows a little sad. Staff friendly and service was great. Probably only area that could do with some work was The Bazaar buffet was was less than ordinary for the price although the dining area was pleasant. I had a very enjoyable stay and loved the spa as well
