My sister and I recently travelled to Melbourne for work the staff were extremely helpful and offered us all the assistance they could, particularly the girl (sorry I didn't get her name) who worked Sunday afternoon (12/4). The rooms were spacious, well appointed and the location was perfect for the convention centre and town. A 10 - 15 minute walk... More

The apartment felt small after the very spacious pent house apartment we enjoyed in Sydney before coming to Melbourne but the location was absolutely fantastic. We did not have to hire taxi even for a day... everything was at walking distance, whether it was the MCG, botanical garden, china street, yarra river bank, federation square. We enjoyed walking along yarra... More

The staff were friendly and check in was efficient, also got upgraded on my first visit which was nice! Self car parking was available for $25 per night, which is pretty decent for Melbourne. The room was large with living area and dining area plus desk and couches. You can order room service from a few local hotels which was... More

Dear Jasoneen, Thank you for writing your review. I am pleased to read that you found our apartments to be large and well appointed and that the staff were friendly and efficient. One minor note - our car parking is actually $22 and not $25, which we agree is very well priced for this area. We look forward to welcoming... More

This was our second time staying at Quest Southbank for our girls weekend and it's safe to say we're 4 happy guests. Great location for shopping, coffee, dining, nightlife and more shopping! The accommodation is clean and comfortable, the options for single beds is great.

Stayed 5 nights In one bedroom appt while performing in a nearby show, so position was great. Gallery doesn't show that bedroom has no window, just a door way into a hall. It also has no mirror and no TV, despite the antenna connection. All very grey, beige and depressing, especially as south-facing. The carpet was stained. The blankets needed... More

We are a family of 4. Really liked this apartment. It has 24hr check-in and the counter staffs are all very friendly. Clean rooms and they make your bed everyday and clean towels are changed too. The rooms are quite clean and you have everything that you need in the room. Very quiet and very relax. Proximity to the city... More

We certainly look forward to welcoming you all back in the future!... More

We stayed in a 15th floor 2 BR Executive Apartment recently for one night. I have stayed at this Quest before and was impressed, however this apartment was not nearly as good a quality as previously. The shower was the aspect which swayed my review to the negative side. For an expensive night's accommodation I would at the very least... More

Stayed at the Quest Southbank on a recent very busy weekend in Melbourne so the rates for this hotel were ridiculously inflated which I found very annoying for the state of the room. The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment on the 14th floor was very spacious but it needs an upgrade desperately. The bathroom needed regrouting, the showerhead produced a... More

Dear Cin06, Thanks for posting your review. Please accept my apologies that a few things in the apartment detracted from your overall enjoyment. As I mentioned in my previous post, we are in the process of re-grouting bathrooms to remedy the problem you mention. As for the air-conditioner, we will have our Maintenance people check to ensure it is operating... More
