Was here for a weeks stay after staying at another hotel for a couple of weeks - comparisons were stark. The room though had decent space, has old fittings worn out carpet and rusty kitchen utensils. The room key was lousy, took an average of four passes before opening the doors. On my first day I had to get the... More

Wow..what to say. Starting with the positive. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were kept very clean. I stayed for 4 nights in order to be central to town and the location is great of course walking distance to most things. Now for the not so great...The place is in need of renovation. Whilst there was a sign... More

We booked a basic room for two people and were upgraded upon arrival to a room with a balcony over Lonsdale St. The staff were most helpful with directions and explaining how to use the discount parking voucher. The lift seemed a little slow the first time we used it, but was OK on subsequent uses. Initially had trouble using... More

Stayed here on business & needed to get to the car during the night. No after hours access to the car unless you pay a fee. Burn marks on the kitchen laminate. Lift has more squeaks and rattles than a 1940's railcar. Shower over bath. Really. This is 2014 people!

When we arrived at Quest we were quite happy by the look of the building upon entering, checking in was very quick with staff there. The rooms were pretty good with a kitchen and clean-ish bathroom. The room that we were staying in was looking in a side street so we didn't really have much of a view. There was... More

This place was booked for me for a night through work so I didn't know much about it before I arrived. The check-in was very slow as there was some mix up with the days of my booking, but I found it very annoying to have the reception person staring at the computer screen for ages rather than telling me...

Was a great location so close to Chinatown and where we needed to be, next time i would choose a corner suite. We didn't eat the restaurant as we ate in Chinatown each night. The bathroom was a little shabby, tiles off the wall and the shower lacked pressure but not too bad.

Stayed in for 2 nights over the Anzac Day weekend. After spending the last 8 nights in different hotels in NSW, SA and VIC this one was the most disappointing. We paid $192.00 for the first night and $215.00 for the second and it just was not worth it. The bed was uncomfortable, the shower head was terrible and didn't... More
