Booked in with our 4 month old baby for a 1 week stay while working in town. Apartment was clean and well equiped with everything we needed. Bed was extremely comfortable and a portacot was already set up with bedding upon our arrival. The staff are great - very helpful and attentive and friendly. Thank you for a great stay.... More

The gardens are well kept with a lawn area and small pool. The two bedroom apartment was spacious and well equipped but in need of refurbishing. There was an air-con in the lounge but only ceiling fans in the bedrooms. A portable water cooler was provided for the main bedroom but it was very noisy. The second bedroom was small... More

This was about the 5th or 6th time we have stayed here. Great location not far from the city and the rooms are spacious. We have 3 kids and the 2 bedroom units are fantastic. Will be staying again in the future

Simple enough, needs a paint job, bathroom was dated. Staff were wonderful. Simply though not worth the $600 for two nights. The staff is its saving grace, so friendly and helpful. Plenty of places to eat close buy, a bit of a hike to the city to walk, trams not far though. I would stay there again if a special... More

We stayed 5 nights while attending Brickvention at the Royal Exhibition Building. We stayed in a lovely third floor 2-bedroom apartment with a nice view over Fitzroy and the church next door. The location is great. Very quiet (except for some loud guests that arrived back at their apartment after a night out on the Saturday) with no traffic or... More

This place has lot of potential - good location, gardens, low rise etc. But the apartments are very tired - ours needed complete overhaul - especially bathrooms! Beds were comfortable so no complaints about sleep quality. Price is reasonable so you get what you pay for but feeling remains that there is missed potential here. It is very Fitzroy

We stayed at the Quest Royal Gardens for 3 nights in late October and found the location wonderful & super convenient. So close to the city by foot but also to numerous trams so we easily got around without a car, visiting Southbank, the theatre district, shopping, the Museum (which is right across the road), more shopping, Parliament, the Library,...

Overall a very comfortable and convenient location with great ambiance for the units overlooking the gardens and pool. I would strongly recommend requesting an apartment on an above ground level overlooking these. Initially we were located on a ground floor unit with bedrooms upstairs facing Marion Lane behind the units. There were 2 main problems with these. Firstly the air... More

This is a great location as it's opposite the Melbourne Museum. Many of the rooms are in a square facing the pool and BBQ area. It's a real oasis in the city. They need hair dryers in the bathrooms and some device for playing music like an ipod dock. Small issues compared to the location asset and greenery of gardens.
