We spend 820$ for 2 night for 3 adult and there was only one king side bed in room. How can this possible that 3 adult in one bed. I think it’s too expensive and not worth it.

A step back in time

Pros: Everything....
Location: Close to Surfers Paradise. Enjoyed beach views from our room. Close walk to all that SP has to offer.
This stylish hotel close to Surfers Paradise with a Retro appeal has good old-fashioned service with pleasant, smiling, happy staff working in a beautiful environment. The food was wholesome and well presented at all of our meals. Room service was efficient and my compliments to the team on the amazing food, served piping hot and delicious. Will definitely be returning for another experience like this one. Well done to the Management and team.

What a fantastic hotel. A real suprise. A hidden gem of sorts. I hadn’t been to the Gold Coast in over 10 years. Loved the retro theme of QT. Loved the art work displayed at the foyer. Loved the in-house entertainment facilities and restaurants. Very comfy bed, slept like a baby. Thank you!

great option

This is a great location - close to everything you need but Just outside the chaos of surfers. The room was big, lots of nice touches but some misses (bird lamp we couldn’t turn off easily so had to dig around and switch off at the wall at night, telephone receiver didn’t work so we needed to make calls on speaker phone. Bed seemed a bit old, too spongy and squeaky (.....). Nice staff. I would come back just for the location and nice interior. Felt a lot better than most Surfers hotels.

Pros: The pool and pool bar
Cons: Staff willingness to provide good customer service
We enjoyed the hotel atmosphere but he staff were helpful but only on request, which was disappointing as we paid more than we would usually pay for a 2 night stay. The mini bar obviously not checked with half full drinks still in the fridge from previous guests. We just hoped for a higher standard overall as we had heard such good things about QT.

Fabulous Hotel

Great hotel, staff all fantastic, room service and other food options great too. Would have liked room especially bathroom to be a bit cleaner and stains in curtains to be removed for a 5 star hotel and the nightly rate. Although I would stay again and enjoyed my stay throughly.
