The hotel was clean and very spacious We really enjoyed the breakfast and the bar area We had wonderful service from Lachie on Monday 15th August - we had some drinks and dinner in the bar area and were looked after all night and the service and friendliness was excellent - he is an absolute asset to your business.

QT is a good hotel.
It is a good stay - always. The room service menu is disappointing but I guess that is because we can order Uber eats and menulog.
