Are you looking for a relaxing getaway with lots of variety to choose from? If you are you’re in luck, because i have the perfect place for you. Q1! Q1 is 322m tall and has 78 floors with 526 modern apartments. Q1 is located in the most beautiful place on earth, the Gold Coast Queensland, Australia. The construction of Q1 started in 2002 and Q1 opened in November 2005. Wow that’s not too long ago. Q1 is an hour and seven minutes away from Brisbane.
Q1 has many amazing purposes and your Q1 stay includes many. An indoor and outdoor pool, a games room, a spa and access to a restaurant named Longboards next to the outdoor pool. Q1 includes the best breakfast place ever, SkyPoint! SkyPoint is open almost every day and the food such as bacon, eggs, toast, cereal, soft chocolate muffins, flaky pastries, fluffy pancakes and a variety of delicious drinks are all cooked and prepared in the morning.
Q1 is the tallest building in Australia and reaches up to 322m high. The Q1 building all together is $255 million dollars. The Q1 resort & Spa apartments can range from $200 – $4,000 per night in cost. At the Q1 you can get provided with a view of other amazing things like the beach, peninsula, and people. Q1 was designed by the clever architect Kent Elliot. The Q1 is currently “20 years of age”
Q1 is the best place ever and if you haven’t been there already get your bags and start packing because you need to Q1 or else you might wast your life on cheap hotels, i would recommend Q1 from zero to infinity because the hotel rooms are not dangerous at all. I rate the Q1 10/10 because Q1 has the best activities like the pools and the spa and don’t forget SkyPoint. Q1 is the best holiday place you will ever visit.

Best place on the GC to stay Great place to stay Staff are so nice and friendly, would recommend this place to any family wanting great location and good size rooms. Full kitchens and the view is amazing highly recommend ocean view rooms for the little extra dollars Loved it so much on holidays I bought an apartment in Q1 and moved here from Sydney – Stayed April 2022
Great location and fantastic views Q1 is in a quiet location a couple of blocks from all the action. Good to be able to see the beach and great to have good views across to the mountains. Unit was clean and everything was provided. It was quite large and modern. A coffee station in the foyer each morning and having restaurants and food/convenience stores in the immediate area is a plus. The Longboards Eatery and Bar on site is a good place to while away the hours. The resort has a great range of swimming options as well as steam room and spa. – Stayed April 2022
Dazzling views – executive spa haven Me and my friends celebrated my big 40 in Q1 at the 4 bedroom executive spa suite. While the weather was a downer all 3 days, the location, view, the space, location and amenities of Q1 well made up for it. I even rang them to say its my birthday and they gave me a nice bottle of champagne and birthday card and a box of belgian chocs!!! The staff are friendly and helpful. What a great service and would definitely come back! Thanks Q1 team! – Stayed January 2022
The best hotel / resorts experience you will ever have !!! First of all, I would like to start with the Ql hotel and there Facilities which were amazing… the room we got were so clean and the view was beautiful. The reception and staff are very helpful and tendered to our enquires and needs. Cathy on the front desk was the most helpful receptionist, she went beyond her services just to give us the best hotel experience. Such a nice beautiful lovely woman she is. Cut to the chase, Qlis the hotel to enjoy your Gold Coast / surface paradise experience… it’s a no brainer. – Stayed January 2022
Great time!!! This is the second time we’ve stayed at Q1 and once again it didn’t disappoint. Unfortunately Skypoint wasn’t open on a day we wanted to go do breakfast but that’s not the Q1’s fault. It’s very clean, convenient, spacious and all staff we encountered were helpful. I’d highly recommend to anyone – Stayed February 2022
Living in the Clouds Stayed in a 2 bedroom spa apartment on floor 50. the views were absolutely amazing and I would return just to live in the clouds again. Great location, all amenities close by and great restaurants on the doorstep. My only minor issue was the steam room was pretty weak and had no steam. Would definitely stay here again when returning to the Gold Coast the views are just too good to pass up. rooms were clean and well furnished and not dated. Pricing was very reasonable – Guest Stayed May 2022
Another terrific stay, nothing has changed First time back at Q1 since the pandemic. Staff greated us with a smile on arrival and it was so nice to see the familiar faces at reception. We had storms there all week but the stay was really comfortable and it was a lovely week away. As always, the ‘no party’ policy is a great one and keeps the place quiet. They now have a little cafe in the foyer called Q1 Wave which seves awesome coffee!! A great place to have a breaky snack before heading out! – Booked Direct Guest Stayed May 2022
Amazing Resort!!!! We absolutely loved our stay. The kids had a ball. We had a view of the ocean out of every single window. We miss it already. The rooms were very clean and the 2 Bedroom Ocean View Apartment was huge. Heaps of room for 4 people. The pools were amazing. Close to everything. We walked everywhere, we booked transfers to the Theme parks through the hotel. Everything was just easy. The only downfall is that it is very bright in the morning by 5:30 am the kids were partying lol – Booked Direct Guest Stayed May 2021
Huge apartments, incredible service, best value! “I absolutely loved my stay at Q1!! Had the 3 bedroom spa apartment at NYE and it was huge with the most incredible ocean view! It was soooo much better than I expected and the rooms are so much bigger than the other hotels I’ve stayed in on the GC (I’ve stayed at many!). My friends and I even extended our stay a further 2 nights we loved it so much. The other impressive thing is they don’t charge guests for car parking!! Can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been sprung with a car park fee of $20+ a night at other hotels. The people at front desk were 5 star service and I’m just so happy with the whole experience. Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived (we even were allowed earlier check in!) Will definitely be booking Q1 every time on the Gold Coast. LOVED IT, THANK YOU” – Stayed January 2021
Short break away with my daughters “The Apartment that we were given for our stay was perfect. There were two bedrooms, the main bedroom had its own ensuite with spa and my daughters also had a bathroom for their own use. The Apartment was on the 45th floor with views to the beach and the mountains into the distance” – Stayed February 2021
Perfect family escape “Our family of 4 spent 6 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was huge and well appointed. Having the 2 bathrooms, 2 TV’s and a full laundry was perfect with our 2 teenage children. Our apartment was serviced daily and that was wonderful as it made it feel like a real holiday for me. The reception staff were very friendly & helpful. Stephanie’s Spa is well worth a visit & remember to book in early, if you wait until you arrive you may miss out. Having Longboards Bar, Sushi, Teppanyaki, Subway, BWS & the shops right downstairs is so convenient. Make sure you get to Longboards, Sushi & the Teppanyaki for a meal & up to Sky Point. Again you may have to book early for the Teppanyaki. There are dozens of restaurants within easy walking distance or you can jump on the tram that is right outside. Car parking downstairs is easy and the wait time on the lifts wasn’t ever too long. We would definitely return” – Stayed February 2021
Relaxing stay in 5* Accommodation “Big rooms, great pools, fantastic burgers and drinks by the pool…. We got a 2 bed, 2 bath ocean view room, and we couldn’t be happier with the size and quality of our room. On the 42nd floor, meant we occasionally had to wait for lifts due to COVID restrictions, but it was a small price to pay. The location is perfect, with a 5 minute walk landing you on Cavil, and the tram out the front. We’ll definitely be back” – Stayed February 2021
Room was Amazing! “We booked for 7 nights to visit theme parks. Received an amazing room. Had recently undergone total renovation. We didn’t pay for housekeeping but could get extra soap, toilet paper and garbage bags from reception if needed. Room was great, parking great. It’s a great distance walk to Cavill for an active family. We had a great stay”- Stayed February 2021
Q1 Three Bedroom Ocean Spa Apartment “Stayed on 64th fl 3br ocean view apartment. Great apartment 3 bathrooms 2 with spa bath. Big lounge and kitchen. Great views, close to beach, shopping, transport(light rail station out front). Everything AAA+++” – Stayed February 2021

Great Location “Excellent room, and about the best hotel bed I have ever had. Everything was spotless and worked as expected. Great views and helpful staff. Parking was great, Enjoyed the pool area.

Everything I Needed “I booked a 2 day stay at Q1 on a whim as I needed a rest. I didn’t really see all it had to offer until I arrived and was more then surprised by the extent of their facilities and of the room I had booked. I couldn’t of asked for anything better, the resort is fabulous”- Stayed January 2021
Superb “This place is amazing, the apartment was just beautiful, the grandkids stayed every night plus had a friend then our daughter stayed a couple of nights, so whos holiday was it!!

Wow “Are the first words that have come to mind about our stay. We booked 5 nights with you guys and honestly have never been more impressed with a stay. The facilities and room are immaculate and we especially loved the views. The Q1 staff from reception to your cleaners are the friendliest I have come across ever at a hotel! Truely amazing and we just wanted to say Thankyou for making my partners birthday truely a special one. Cannot wait till we get to return to this beautiful place.” – Stayed December 2020
A belated thank you “All the boys enjoyed themselves and it was great being all in one room. Your reception staff were wonderful – even taking the time to take an interest in what we were doing each day (what golf courses we were off to etc) – a very nice touch. I am pleased to advise they’re all keen to come back in 2020” – Stayed December 2020

Back for another stay “Have been staying here one to two times a year for the past 6 years. Don’t bother looking elsewhere. Location and eateries are fantastic. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with an extra TV in the bedroom. All are fully self contained and come with a view. The pools are absolutely fantastic, couldn’t ask for any more. Lots of secure onsite parking as we drive up from Melbourne. Just a great experience every time. Staff are lovely and nothing is to much trouble. Can’t wait for our next trip and can’t think of any negatives” Stayed April 2020 – Melbourne
Best holiday “It was our first holiday in 29 years. We stayed at the Q1 Resort and spa in surfers paradise. When we arrived it was so much better than we expected. When we walked into our room the views were amazing. The room was so big .the room was very clean could not fault it.we would recommend Q1 to everyone we will definitely be coming back” Stayed March 2020 – Australia
Family Holiday “We took our 3 kids for a 5 day stay in a 3 bedroom apartment. Check in is very easy as well as parking beneath Q1. The apartment was modern, clean and spacious. Kitchen, lounge and dining were all open plan.It had a lovely large functional kitchen with dishwasher, plenty on coffee, tea and sugar, my only complaint would be the fridge it looked like it belonged in someones garage holding their beer. The lounge room had a comfortable lounge suite as well as coffee table and tv. There was a closed in verandah with table and chairs. On one side of apartment was the main room it had a king comfortable bed, a Tv, large ensuite bathroom and walk in robe. Ensuite has a toilet, shower, large vanity and large spa bath with a window that looked into the bedroom. Second bedroom was off lounge room, it had a double bed with built ins. Off the kitchen there was a little corridor with a toilet room mid way down then at the end to the left was the 3rd large bedroom with 3 single beds and built ins, to the right of corridor was a laundry with washer, dryer, ironing board and iron. A bathroom with a shower, vanity and toilet. Bathrooms had plenty of lovely smelling complimentary toiletries, plenty of towels, power sockets. The Q1 has a couple of large outdoor pools, one indoor pool and spa and a gaming room. Staff were lovely and helpful. Q1 is a short walk to the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again” Stayed march 2020 – Broadwater Australia.
360 degree views “We went to Q1 to spend my wife’s birthday and it was really value for money with breathtaking 360 degree views of Gold coast. Apartments are spacious with pretty much everything you can want.Highly recommend” Stayed March 2020 – Brisbane Australia.
Excellent Location “Very clean and quiet apartments. The property shares the same building with the Skytower, and the train station is just right in front of the hotel. The gold coast airport shuttle stops by the roadside of the hotel. Short walking distance to the Surfers Paradise Beach area” Stayed February 2020 – Singapore
Thought i was in Heaven “I was lucky enough to be given a room on the 35 th floor. The view was outstanding both day and night. The room was HUGE, quiet, comfortable, modern, and fully self contained. When I invited friends up for a look they were soo jealous, and felt somewhat dissatisfied with the room they had booked in an adjacent Hotel for a similar price! Staff were courteous and the travel desk very helpful. Pools looked beautiful especially at night. Lots of choices for dinner out nearby. As a female, the only small complaint I had was that the internal bathroom in the particular room I was in needed better lighting above the mirror for ladies to apply their makeup, and also a full length mirror somewhere would have been helpful. Otherwise Q1 Resort & Spa certainly delivered & I would not hesitate to stay there again” Stayed Janurary 2020
Quality accommodation, great location “Stayed for the second time with my teenagers. Hired a car from the airport as we wanted to go places during stay. Apartments are spacious, modern and well equipped with full kitchen. Easy walking distance to beach and downtown Surfers” Stayed September 2020 – Melbourne Australia
Delightful Stay Romantic Anniversary Getaway “My husband and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary in the luxury of Q1 with a spa indulgence package and enjoyed our first couples massage treatment. The amenities and location of the Q1 at Surfers Paradise were fantastic we walked on the beach in the mornings dined in the Japanese restaurants and grabbed a fantastic coffee in the morning right out the front of the Hotel and relaxed the entire weekend. Cant praise the Q1 enough for their service” Stayed September 2020 – Brisbane Australia
Amazing! “We have just spent 5 nights in a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment on the 47th floor. The unit was lovely, large and very clean. The view from our apartment was amazing! It was exactly what we were hoping for when we booked. Had great meals at Longboards, Alfresco and Northcliffe Surf Club which are all close by. Also had breakfast at SkyPoint Observation Deck. General admission is $24 (adult) but if you buy the breakfast deal through Q1 you get admission and buffet breakfast for $29. We loved Q1 and can’t wait to come back!” Stayed October 2020 – Brisbane Australia
Number one for Quality “We recently had the privilege of staying at Q1 Resort and Spa whilst on a family holiday to Queensland. Upon arrival, we realised we had one of the best locations along Surfers Paradise, in walking distance from beach, shops and restaurants. Traveling with three children, we knew we needed space and comfort, Q1 delivered this. Our Apartment offered a modern three bedroom, two bathroom, full kitchen, plus so much more for a very affordable price. The Staff were very helpful. We made our way from the Gold Coast up to Cairns and we would recommend Q1, as the best accommodation experience of our holiday! We will definitely return to Q1 Thank you” Stayed October 2020 – Cairns Australia
Good times at Q1 “We stayed at Q1 for 3 nights and couldn’t be happier! We travelled as two friends and booked a room that accommodated 3 people so we could be sure we’d have separate beds. Thinking we’d have 1 bedroom and maybe the sofa bed, we were really surprised and happy to find our apartment (on the 24th floor, no 2406) had two separate bedrooms, and although the smaller room had two single beds, it was more than we were expecting. The view was also spectacular with both ocean and river views. The unit itself is large and light and bright, with modern furniture, a dining area, and an enclosed balcony. The bathroom was spacious and clean had duel entrances which meant we didn’t have to walk through a bedroom to use the facilities. The pool area is really beautiful with two pools to choose from, plenty of sun loungers, two day beds, some BBQ tables and chairs and BBQ’s. The on-site eatery/bar, Longboards (will review this separately), does a tasty cocktail in a plastic cup so you can drink by the pool – a must do in the hot QLD sun! The beach is only a 2 minute walk away, the tram is just across the road, there’s a convenience store 5m away, and it’s only a quick walk into the heart of Surfers to all the restaurants and bars. Q1 really lives us to its well-earned reputation and I can’t wait to go back!” Stayed August 2020 – Sydney Australia
Happy holiday “Stayed there for a week and it is one of the best apartments we have stayed in spacious rooms views that take your breath away. Pools are great for everyone as are all the facilities. Restaurants easy walking distance from apartment and short stroll to beach.loved it so much booked for next year.” Stayed August 2020 – Gorokan Australia
One of the best “The view and the bar on the top floor is incredible, you can sit and watch the sunset/sunrise from there, you don’t need to book a room to enjoy the view, you only need to buy a ticket to go the top floor where the bar is located with amazing city/sea view. August – Saudi Arabia
Fantastic “The apartments are fantastic, come with everything you need, full kitchen and appliances, washer and dryer. Only 5-10 min walk to Cavill Ave. Close to just about everything on surfers paradise. Car parking is a little tight but manageable” Stayed August 2019 – Melbourne Australia
One word… Amazing “We just checked out from Q1 and immediately miss it already. The apartment unit was clean and amenities/facilities all well thought through. Amenities replenished daily. Space is comfortable for six persons. Needless to say, the view is amazing. Oh and not to forget, the hotel team members are all friendly. If I ever visit GC again, I’ll definitely stay in this beautiful landmark” Stayed August 2019 – Brunei
Such an incredible success! It was incredible.
Joseph and Mona, as well as family on both sides were there to witness the magical event! There was a lot of styling time, but we were really happy with the result. On the night, Mona through Joseph was overseas. He even posted a fake picture on instagram to sell the story! Mona was coming to dinner with her family on level 74, thinking it was your restaurant. Upon leaving the elevator, she was greeted with dimmed lights, the candle pathway, roses, photos, styling and within the middle, her man she though was overseas. It was so amazing. Thank you for all of your support to make this happen. In particular, the service elevator made everything so much more effective. The couple and family could not have been happier with their stay and experience at Q1. Please forward the couples and our appreciation to your team.
Again, thank you for your energy and time over the past weeks

We feel extremely confident and satisfied with the service your team has provided and it never hurts to acknowledge good work. October 2018 – Q1 Apartment Owner
Thought we should pass on our appreciation to yourselves for the great work you have done in securing almost 100% occupancy for almost 2 years for us now. Every month we’re amazed by how the occupancy at our unit has increased. Obviously the initial recommendations to upgrade the Unit have worked in our favour both through peak and off peak periods. Also a big “thank you” for understanding the number of times we’ve rented the property to our staff for either holidays or business trips. Every one of them have enjoyed the experience. We are about to use the apartment for the first time in several years next week for 4 nights and look forward to our stay. October – Q1 Apartment Owner
Very impressive, the rates are excellent, I can’t believe these apartments were so cheap to buy when I did. I will be putting into your holiday let next time I move out. I did permanent rental through an agent last time and it wasn’t very good. I only took home 2k after agent fees per month. The place was filthy when I moved back in too. I will not be doing again. This apartment has proven to be quite a good hold investment and will serve me well in years to come. It was so cheap to buy when I did. Very impressed with the improvements around the place too… the pool area coffee shop, intercoms and carpet in the lifts etc. place is looking very good.
Thanks for your assistance, much appreciated. November – Q1 Apartment Owner
Thank you very much for your kind words. Indeed considering high standard of Q1 and the new refurbishment of my apartment,I could get a good sales price for it. I thank you and your team, once again and and would like to express again, all 17 years long that I was one of the owner in Q1 building always received first class services and I will come visit you and your team when I am next time in Australia and Gold Coast. Kind and warmest regards till then – Q1 Apartment Owner
