Stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment at the Q1 for 5 nights. Location was great - 200m from a patrolled beach, tram stop right in front and a 10 min walk to Cavill Ave - far enough away from the nightclubs but easy enough to get to for dinner. Staff were friendly and helpful. There seemed to be a lot of...

Out of all the hotels I've visited, the Q1 was the best by far. We stayed at the Mantra, Crowne plaza, Soul, Hilton and more but for some odd reason, I was never sure about booking the Q1. Their price was simply too good to pass so we did. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, for 4 nights and...

The scenery from my room was terrific! l am very satisfied with their facilities like swimming pool, fitness. Also the service was great. As the building is near from the surfer's paradise, you can easily enjoy the beach and marine sports. I strongly recomend you to choose Q1 if staying at Goldcoast!!! Too good to visit!! 수영장, 피트니스 시설이 깔끔해서...

Booked at Q1 for 3 nights having never stayed here before. The price was inviting as we normally stay at Soul and it was 3 times the price. My initial thoughts on arrival were positive, the Staff were friendly even after 3 failed attempts to program my room keys. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 11th floor,...

Great location, excellent service and amazing view. Staff friendly, we only stayed a week the other 11days we booked at another resort and if we knew early on that we will enjoy our stay we would have rather stay the whole period at the Q1 Resort.

if you are in the gold coast then this tower elevates 78 floors for viewing and also does outside climbing further up. Amazing views, amazing experience, 12pm is not too busy but sunset is an unforgettable experience.

Stayed at the Q1 for 3 days. Friendly staff at the reception and told us that our room was ready. Went up the 21st floor and as the elevator door opened, an oil/grease stench was in the air. Poor ventilation I suppose. Unlocked the door to our apartment and there was a similar stench. Probably the people before us did...
