QT Gold Coast Hotel Review

QT Gold Coast Hotel Review
By admin


First impressions 9/10

I haven’t even made it through the doors when I’m accosted by a beaming Hawaiian-shirted kid. “What name is it you’re checking in under?” he asks halfway up the marble steps. It takes me a minute to realise he works there. I know I’m on holiday as soon as I enter the lobby – a stylish atrium brightened up with a few splashes of kitsch and colour that wouldn’t look out of place in Miami.

Accommodation 8/10

The room is simply furnished but small touches like the cockatoo lamps, satin bathrobes and his n hers thongs make all the difference.  Funky monochrome tiling in the bathroom gives it a touch of old school glamour. And then there’s the bed – truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Ambience 8/10

It’s cool, there’s no doubt about it. But not so cool that you’ll feel out of place. That said, it’s probably not one for your older clients unless they’re hell bent on reliving their glory days. It’s definitely a lively spot – from ‘interactive” restaurant Bazaar to the partygoers queuing in the lobby to get into popular bar Stingray,

Service 9/10

I only come across one slightly disgruntled member of staff, but he’s just ticked off with the kooky uniform he’s been put in. Everyone else has been hit with the happy stick and literally can’t do enough to help. Details like the tray of petit fours, and complimentary lemonade awaiting you on arrival make additional nice touches.

Facilities 7/10

Complete with pool, spa facilities, a bar that throbs at the weekend and restaurants you’ll actually want to return to, you could come for the weekend and never set foot outside. However, if you decide you want to venture outside, the perky concierges will be more than happy to help. The only area that lacks the same slick gleam is the gym, which is small with equipment that’s a little tired.

Overall 82%

One of the newcomers to the coast, QT’s quirky retro with a modern twist is a welcome contrast to many other tired properties in the area. Although not beachfront, it’s located close to the ocean with views available. Its location, bang in the heart of Surfers Paradise combined with its reasonable room rates make it a great option for a frivolous weekend on the Goldie.

Rates start from $179 for a Garden View Double. For more information visit www.qthotels.com.au
