Where else can you get stunning views from your balcony, lounge, kitchen, bedroom and even the toilet. Q1 is our go to holiday destination. Fantastic, clean and large apartments. Close to fabulous restaurants, shopping and the beach. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Wonderful stay for 7 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. Large well appointed and decorated apartment. Tallest building in Aust. The views on top sky deck amazing so have a drink or a meal there. Lots of restaurants near by. Nice enclosed deck. Would be very safe for children.

Rude staff, "ocean view room" was on the third floor. Staff were very rude, which is what made everything else a lot worse. I wouldnt attend ever again. The money you pay to stay somewhere with highly regarded views, i was appalled in all honesty.

Dear Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are disheartened to read that your time with us was not the experience we are striving for. As much as we would like to get everyone an apartment on a higher floor and the best view, there are a number of variables involved and we are unable to meet all requests we receive. For example, the apartment that you reserved was a 1 Bedroom Spa Apartment, this is only a city view apartment and starts at level 3 and only goes up to 40. This is not our Ocean View apartment, and this is one of the reasons why you were unable to see the ocean from your room. In addition to this, we also upgraded your room free of charge to the next apartment type, 1 Bedroom Family. Although, upgraded, it still was not an ocean view apartment, it is only situated between certain levels and offers city views. In saying that, our 1 Bedroom Ocean View apartments are anywhere between level 10 and 40, and like you have mentioned requesting a higher floor is something we would recommend, as everyone has a different expectation of floor levels. However, all requests are subject to availability. It seems there has been some miscommunication regarding requests and apartments, we are sorry to hear that it impacted your stay and our team were not approachable to discuss this further. Nonetheless, we take reviews seriously and all your feedback will be passed back to our team. We can confirm there was no mention of a high floor request on your reservation paperwork that we received. If you decide to return and give us a second chance, we would recommend booking direct at the property, or if booked through another agent, feel free to call up to confirm the request is on your reservation. This enables us to try our hardest to get you the apartment, level, view you are expecting. We do hope we are able to welcome you back and improve on your experience. Cassandra N-Duty Manager

My apartment was lovely and pretty big too. I also had great views of the pool and the beach. I loved how my balcony was enclosed as It was less of a worry with the kids around. The resort is situated in a great location. I would definitely recommend staying here!

It was pretty awesome. The rooms were enormous, It had a washer and dryer. The view was good. I was thinking to give it 4 stars as it feels a bit huge as a building, there wasn't a good feeling, it felt like being in Bladerunner a bit where one is a number. It doesn't deserve just 4 stars though and the front desk staff were lovely.
