I've stayed a few times now and have been happy with the Quest experience. Parking is available behind the building which is a benefit as street or public car parking is tough to find. Rooms on the front of the building are the best as you balcony gets a view. Rooms at the back can loud when garbage trucks come... More

We just got back from our stay at quest Canberra. This was my first time staying in a serviced apartment rather than a hotel. The quest had the service you expect from the hotel but with a lounge room, your own kitchen, separate bedroom, a huge balcony and a cheaper pricetag. It is five minutes walk from anything you need... More

I stay here regularly for work, the location is central, rather than a formal hotel, these are serviced appartments, but the experience is typically better than most hotels in Canberra. The place has a low key, intimate feel without an impersonal large lobby like most Hotels. Rooms are large and often feature generous balconies, rooms are modern and stylish. There... More

I recently spent 6 nights here for work purposes. After reading previous reviews on Trip Advisor warning about the noise from the nearby Irish Murphy's pub, I asked for a quiet room away from the hotel noise. I was given room 18 which is at the back overlooking a deceptively quiet lane - with lots of rubbish bins. I was... More

Dear Campbells05, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback for Quest Canberra. Being a hotel in the central CBD city of Canberra, we face the obstacles of outside noise such as street noise from cars as well as people passing and the truck noises from the emptying of the bins for the corresponding shops in our building. Unfortunately... More

The apartments are very centrally located in a lovely old building. My apartment was clean, well equipped and relatively spacious with a nice private balcony. Front desk staff were very helpful and lent me an umbrella when I was going out for the evening and it was raining. There was a problem with the hot water for the whole building... More

I booked here because of it's location and because it is in the Melbourne building. I was alone in a one bedroom apartment. Unfortunately I was in Canberra for a funeral and was very preoccupied with that so I missed out on the opportunity to capitalise on the central location. The Parking system was awkward being in a back lane... More

Stayed here recently for a work trip to Canberra as I wanted to prepare my own meals and the Quest offered a small kitchenette. There was a pub located behind my room and it was pretty noisy when they were loading empty kegs out. It was also a happy hour night of the week for students so business was roaring.... More

The band downstairs started at 9 pm and stopped at 2 am and was so loud the bass notes were lifting me off my bed! The next morning the receptionist told us that that they knew all about the noise and quite often get bad reviews about it! promised the manager would ring us and of course he didn't. It... More

We stayed a couple of nights on our regular pilgrimage to the NGA. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. A slightly annoying detail was that the small table and two chairs were placed just inside the door, so it was a bit of a squeeze to get in and out. We had a bit of trouble sussing out... More

My apartment was well presented, spacious and comfortable. However, the pillows need replacing immediately. My room was generally quite noisy and was in fact right above P J O'Reillys, the irish bar. On Thursday night they had a live band playing and my bed was right above the stage. Reception was not manned at 9.50pm, so I rang the after... More
