The Kitsch and Cuteness of QT Gold Coast
A stay at QT Gold Coast was as if we just stepped out of a Gidget movie and into a surf side vacation rental with a lot of class and personality. Long gone are the days of mis-matched wicker furniture, well loved carpeting and not-cool-vintage design. This place is done right.
Here is a peak inside the super-quirky beach side property known for fantastic views and even better brews. From the vintage station-wagon sporting a few surfboards to StingRay Lounge and to the in-room squeeze-your-own lemonade, this place screams vacation. Even the Sunday brunch at the interactive Marketplace goes on our list of favorite hotel brunches.
With large comfy rooms, that are decked out in mid-century modern decor it was easy to settle in to staying just blocks from the beach. The modern bathrooms are the furthest from overused beach house that we could imagine and with a few splashes of bright colors; they have summer written all over them.
In the ways of filling your belly QT has you covered. The funky StingRay Lounge is a happening hot-spot when the sun goes down and for their lobby coffee shop is perfect way to get the caffeine and cake fix in preparation for a long day catching waves. Think of Grandma's kitchen with better coffee.
A quirky hotel boutique is stocked with unique items, room decor and even the free bikes to wander around the local streets or head to the sand. Even if you forget your own toiletries, a fully stocked first-aid kit turned medicine cabinet is at guests fingers.
Rates right now begin at $189 AUD ($196).
