QT Gold Coast

stylish accommodation in Surfers Paradise at QT Gold CoastQT is a relatively new – and very welcome – addition to the already extensive Gold Coast accommodation options. While many of the mid-range to high end hotels tend towards the generic and lack any real “personality”, that’s certainly not the case with QT Gold Coast.

The hotel has almost 300 rooms, with a choice of mountain view or ocean view. They are furnished in a very stylish manner: colourful, quirky and manage to be both contemporary and slightly retro at the same time. It really does make a refreshing change, and even though it is considered “trendy” it remains a very family-friendly option.

Rooms are spacious and feature queen or king sized beds, flat screen televisions, a private balcony, iPod docks – you can really tell that they have been designed and furnished with an attention to detail. Clean, bright, colourful with a sense of fun, and the views out can be spectacular.

The hotel itself is close to the beach, and while it is located a little away from the main Cavill Mall precinct, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing and everything is still within walking distance. QT facilities include an outdoor pool and spa, a gym, two tennis courts – even free bicycle hire. Dining options are excellent with two well-regarded restaurants and the rather cool bar Stingray Lounge.

QT provides a welcome alternative with it’s stylish design, funky vibe and friendly service: with a bit of looking around online you can find some very reasonable deals, too. Highly recommended.

QT Gold Coast is located at 7 Staghorn Avenue in Surfers Paradise. Telephone (07) 5584 1200.
