Visited this room when in town for a conference. Paid $450 a night for a two bedroom. Disappointed with what we got for the price. The worst water saving showerhead ever but the dishwasher has been running for two days now. Goodness knows how much water it has used. They would be better off giving us normal showerheads and fixing... More

Excellent location for Melbourne CBD and Southbank. About a 15 min brisk walk from the convention centre. Staff are lovely. Rooms are a little compact - quite typical for CBD location.

Apartments were very small indeed , but kitchen is what you would expect. Living area very small. There were 2 sets of couples in our apartments and the bedrooms were right beside each other so you could hear each other. We had the 2 singles beds in our room and they were very small beds and not King Singles as... More

Quest southbank is well located a few streets behind southbank itself, easy walking to the city centre and there's a supermarket nearby for supplies. BUT it's NOISY if you get a room on the city view side of the building As you look straight down on a major road. I'm a good sleeper so it wasn't an issue for me... More

We stayed at Quest Southbank for two nights in March, after an early evening flight into Tullarmarine. It has got to be one of the easiest places to find from the airport ever - really well signposted if you don't have a map or GPS. It literally backs on to the Melbourne Arts& Entertainment Centre, giving you immediate access on... More

This was a very secure hotel & well located with a short walk to Federation Square, the river and shopping areas. The apartment was spacious & cleaned daily. We had two bedrooms, one with en-suite. The apartment had a good sized kitchen area with all the accessories you would need. The hotel is located close to the Southgate food hall... More

The rooms are large, our two-bedroom apartment had two good sized bathrooms, a dining table, room to move in the kitchen, a desk, and some lounge suites. Not bad at all. The location is very convenient to southbank's restaurants, the casino, arts centre, St Kilda road, and just across the bridge to the CBD. Parking was not too difficult, although... More

I stayed in a Quest Southbank serviced apartment on a recent business trip to Melbourne and found it to be good quality accommodation at a great location for a reasonable price. The apartments are well located a few blocks back from the river in the Southbank area, across the river from the central city. There is easy access to the... More
