Stayed here for two nights while visiting family on the gold coast. Our room was the perfect size for me, my husband and our little girl. We were on the 10th floor and although we weren't at the top we had excellent views still. The room was immaculately clean and the staff were beyond helpful. Despite not being the biggest...

We surprised our kids with a two night stay here - they were so so excited. The apartment was massive - perfect for family stays and very clean which is great. Loved the spa in the room. Pools were ice cold so unable to enjoy them at all which was disappointing for the kids. Even the heated pool wasn't that...

I stayed here with my ex husband and the children for a couple of nights earlier this year. I had heard people rave about the Q1 and how amazing it was, but I beg to differ. Whilst the building itself is a masterpiece, and the foyer, rooms all modern, I felt it lacked so many things for families. The fact...

Hi Unique Monique73, Thanks for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. When you book a reduced room rate that's un-serviced you get all the arrival amenities and stock but if you choose an un-serviced rate then yes you have to pay for towels, same as all self-contained apartments offering this, if you want fresh clean towels...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment facing the beach and looking north, amazing view from the 51st floor! Apartment was roomy and comfortable but very basic. Kitchen was problematic making cooking a little difficult. Being high we had a howling wind noise in the background all the time and a breeze that we couldn't figure where it was coming from......

Rooms are nicely appointed and are pefect if you are after a small apartment either with family or travelling on business with work colleagues. The team line is located very close to the hotel so even though it's not right in the middle of everywhere it's only a short cheap trip away. Great views from rooms high up.

This was my second time staying at the Q1 and I have been recommending it to everyone I know! From the beautiful modern rooms, the insane level of service from the amazing staff and the location - you simply cannot go past the Q1 when you are looking for the best accomodation in Surfers Paradise. I cannot wait to return!

This hotel is a good place to have holiday, with good view and good service. The room is pretty good, and the staff is very nice. Our little ones really love there, and we enjoyed a couple of days over there.

We had a 2 bed apt on 17th floor. View was good but obviously would have been better the higher up you are. Apartment was large and clean. Bit of wear and tear noted around the apartment. Perfect set up for a stay In gold coast. Plenty of kitchen utensils and great having washing machine . Great base to discover...

This is a must when visiting the Gold Coast. The views are incredible. We went up late afternoon and saw the Gold Coast skyline both in daylight and in twilight - amazing! The lift was so quick - 45 seconds for 71 floors.
