4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For my 21st birthday myself and my two friends stayed at the Q1 hotel, Spa and Resort. The service was amazing and I was greeted on arrival by balloons, flowers and platers of treats. This had been an amazing and unforgettable experience provided by the hotel staff, incredible ocean views and my own spa bath in my room. During our stay we also travelled down to the spa for a treatment and facial - staff were just beautiful. Just a perfect experience and we were incredibly impressed with the service and immaculatly kept rooms.

Cant recommend Q1 enough. The service, the rooms, amenities and location are without doubt best we've experienced at Gold Coast over a 17 year period. When quoted for the 1 week stay at a very affordable price, it made me think 'what's the catch' as in the past with these type of apartment buildings I have ended up getting less than desirable accommodation, accommodation no where near to the level advertised, and one where its obvious that 'schoolies' have been using with no real cleaning / renovating being taken place. The Q1 was the opposite, it exceeded expectations as the website and other forms of advertisement do not truly display the excellence of this accommodation. BIG Thumbs up

Such a lovely experience at this spa today. Perfect atmosphere and perfect treatment with great staff. Quality and price was just right. Would come back here in a heartbeat. The products used are excellent quality and they have a great local vegan range of product including tanning products.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 46th floor, huge apartment plenty of room for anything, the view was amazing could see everything over the west and could also see up and down the beach/coast line! Was very happy with my stay and wish I didn’t have to leave! Only downfall and it’s a little one was the enclosed balcony, but I guess that’s done for the look of the overall building ! Need to come back ASAP

We stayed 4 nights at Q1 in 140sqm Ocean View apartment on the 57th floor. The views are spectacular and our 2 daughters aged 11 and 14 were very happy with the pool & beach area and burgers at the pool bar.

We decided to stay at Q1 for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment. 2 adults with 2 kids. A short family holiday before the schools go back. Great location and lovely swimming pools. The views from our apartment were stunning and, whilst this was a major attraction, we were disappointed to find the service levels barely adequate at best. The check in & check out experience was robotic and our interactions with all front desk service staff during our stay felt clerical rather than hospitable. We tried the buffet breakfast one morning. To be fair, we understand that the restaurant may be managed separately, but again the service and quality of food didn't fit the price tag. Once was enough. Furnishing in the apartment was quite basic and the beds/mattresses past their best days. On the way to the airport on our return home we ordered some snacks at McDonald's. We felt we received better customer service at McDonald's than our stay Q1. There are plenty of options with views at surfers. Service & hospitality still matters to us, so next time we will stay somewhere else.

There is a reason everyone knows about this place. Large pool area, great sized rooms and lounging areas. Ideal location, Amazing views in each room. There are quite a few lifts which make the trips up and down fast. We had a really relaxing time. Would recommend - I can’t think of anything I’d change.

The hotel is situated 5 minutes from Surfers Paradise beach. We rented a 2 bedrom apartment. Nice kitchen. 2 bathrooms 2 kingsize beds Huge livingroom with 2 sofas Nice balcony. Not so good free wifi, after 18:00 it more or less was not usable. Very fast elevators. Our apartment was at level 20, with a nice view. Worth every dollars :)

We had the two bedroom apartment with a stunning beach and green view. Kitchen was perfectly equipped, actually ir had it all that it felt like home. Great facilities too. Convenient location( beach, restaurants, transport and cavill). Can't wait for my next trip.

This was our 2nd trip to Q1 and stayed in a 3 bedroom suite on level 44. This room, hotel, staff and facilities and simply superb. Where do I begin. From Day 1, you are made to feel welcome. Staff are friendly and welcome you with a smile. We arrived early and could use the facilities until the room became available - which was earlier than expected. The room was spotless and the view is breath-taking - truly world class. The hotel is well positioned and close to everything Surfers has to offer. Facilities are second to none in Surfers. We particularly like the BBQ amenities and cabana's. With any review, I try to add value and outline any opportunities for improvement. These are:- # more pool chairs as gets quite crowded around lunchtime. # gym could use some fresh equipment # would be great if Longboards offered a swim up drink facility
