My husband and I were very happy with our recent stay at Quest. The front desk team were all exceptionally polite and welcoming (and are onsite 24 hours which is great for late check ins and early check outs), the room was clean and comfortable (clearly a lot of care has been taken in choosing the decor and maintaining the...

The room staff and premises were of a high standard. The staff were as friendly and as helpful as they could be. We had a two bedroom apartment, which was roomy and comfortable. The location is fantastic as you are able to walk to the pubs, clubs and restaurants easily. With Brandys just downstairs, it is a must stay location.... More

Was in town for a few nights with work and enjoyed our stay. It was close enough to walk to the nearby restaurants, but far enough away that it was quiet at night. rooms were clean and comfortable, although it is an older hotel and it is starting to get tired. Overall, a good choice and I would stay here... More

Our room was a studio but it was still large enough to be comfortable. Nice to sit out on the balcony that over looks the marina. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is nice and close to all the restaurants on Palmer st. They are currently renovating and I was a little surprised that the noise started... More

I spent 3 weeks here pending other accommodation for work, the rooms are clean and convenient just like living in an apartment, well situated and everything you need is close by, also very close to the nightlife.

Quest Townsville is currently undergoing renovation works, but this did not have any real impact on my stay, except that some of the parking was a bit restricted, but I still had an off street parking spot. Room was clean and airy. Staff friendly and helpful. Room is the quietest of any of the hotels I have stayed at in... More

Stayed at the Quest for five nights. Fantastic location as Palmer St is just at your fingertips. Asked for an apartment away from Palmer St and was promptly given one. Found the hotel very quiet and staff helpful. Secure parking was excellent and would definitely stay again.

Quest is in a great location and the staff are very friendly. Only downside is the old fashioned set up of the bedroom being on the external walkway side of the building, so everyone passes your bedroom as your sleeping when they come home from a late night. Great views over the marina and would've been a great bonus if... More
