Reviewed 15 January 2018 via mobile

We are from England and stayed here as a treat for two nights with our son and family who live in Brisbane. We stayed on the 63rd floor in a three bed apartment and it was fabulous! The views were breathtaking - the privacy and space we all had was excellent. The only down side to our stay was a blonde resident - she said she lived there as she fft and blinded at some kids who were trying to get their ball out of one of the palms...yes they were shaking it and no she shouldn't have been so potty mouthed about it especially in front of guests and their children.
The hotel is well placed for all amenities and the views are amazing in the evening too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...except for the blonde potty princess and her mouth.
Would certainly recommend.

The building is obviously known and it sounds good on paper that you are staying there .... HOWEVER

Here are the positives:
- the apartments are very large and you have plenty of space everywhere.
- the pool area is nice
- is close to everything
- the amenities in the apartments are good enough and relatively standard anywhere for a 4star apartment in Australia.

The negatives:
- forget about sleeping, the beds are concrete hard, the bedding are the lowest quality you can get, and there is literally ZERO Black out, so be prepared to scream with anger and frustration when the sun comes out at 5am
- the apartments are fairly empty. They scattered around the cheapest pieces of furniture.
- it’s packed with people and in true surfers paradise style, the wrong type of people
- the give you the minimum amount of everything that includes just 2 towels for your entire stay. You need to wash it daily although there is a good washing machine and dryer in the apartment.
- the whole building lacks luxury for the money they ask
- the reception is just plain with barely anyone smiling at you. It’s very very basic
- there is a serious lack of loungers so don’t even try to find out in the pool! Think 3000 people and 15 loungers scénario.

Peppers if you can get a good deal is literally Day and night compare to Q1

Dear Jason A,

Thank you for your recent stay and providing a comprehensive review of our resort. It is important to us that we provide the best in customer service and ensure a comfortable getaway experience for all hotel guests. It is upsetting to read that your expectations were not met on this occasion. I am pleased that you enjoyed the spaciousness of your apartment and our central location in Surfers Paradise. We are always looking to improve guest experience with hotel staff and bedding and your feedback has been duly noted. Although the view is magnificent, the morning sun rising over the ocean can be quite bright throughout summer. Thank you once again for your feedback.

We booked an apartment style room that had an enclosed balcony.
The room was immaculate. Clean and sophisticated.
The pools were warm and the hot tub was even warmer.
At night you can take a trip to the beach and do a night walk there or go into Surfers Paradise for dinner and entertainment.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Ocean

Qi is excellently located in Surfers Paradise. I booked it to celebrate with some friends, so there were actually 9 of us I 4 bedrooms. The apartment is huge with fantastic views everywhere and very clean.
Staff was just brilliant and so eager to make our Holiday the best they can. Lifts are fast and we were blown away every time we came back. You almost do not want to leave the apartment and enjoy everything around. Highly recommended even for larger groups.

Room Tip: looking at the position of the Hotel, I could not imagine getting a bad view... every side is attara...

I stayed in this hotel in June that was the winter in Gold Coast
The location of the Q1 is perfect
I was with my family and we booked 3 bedroom apartment which was very spacious
The view was really amazing
The only negative thing is the cleaning service wich is paid for and it wasn’t good
