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

Checked in on Good Friday late and was left the code to get our key out of the safe as no staff on duty.

Really disappointed in this hotel, particularly after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor. There were good points, the location is good and gets even better when you work out the Trams system which is just great. The sole staff member who was on duty over the Easter weekend was also very good and tried exceptionally hard to be of assistance. The... More
