Stayed here in Feb 2012 for 2 nights. We booked a 1 bedroom appartment and when we opened the door there was a smell that greated us that wasn't pleasant (smelled like off food or vomit). Went back to reception, came with me to check and gave us a 2 bedroom appartment without any hassle. The place was clean, good... More

A family group of 5 stayed here for 2 nights in January 2012 to attend a wedding. The location of the apartments is really good, a few minutes walk from the restaurants and shops in Southgate. It was relatively expensive but the stay was in the school holidays and adjacent to the Australian Tennis Open. The apartment was reasonably compact,... More

The two bedroom apartment is fabulous, just what four friends on a long Melbourne Cup weekend holiday needed. Everything that opened and closed, the location so convenient to all things southbank and the city. Staff were extremely helpful, especially when one of us lost our wallet (luckily was returned by a passerby). Would definitely stay again.

This hotel has wonderfully helpful staff. Thank goodness because the rooms were anything but clean, the beds hard as rocks and ugly acrylic blankets. Location is good for the arts centre but why do all southbank hotels think they can get away with being second rate because of where they are?

My boyfriend and I stayed here over the Christmas period, December 2011. The location is great- so close to Crown Casino, Southbank shops and eateries and the aquarium. It's about a ten minute walk. You would choose the apartments for their fantastic location above anything else. The apartment we stayed in was quite dirty however, and I was really dissapointed... More

The hotel is very close to the arts centre, but a bit of a walk from the river bank. I would not choose to return to this hotel if I was sightseeing again. Unfortunately it rained the weekend I was there and the walk was not pleasant in the rain. There is no public transport close at hand, no tram... More

Stayed at Quest on Southbank for 3 nights in a two bedroom executive apartment. The location is excellent, quick walking distance to Flinders Street and Southbank. The view facing the city and the yarra was also pretty good. The apartment was a great size and generally i was pretty happy with my stay. I was on level 12 and i... More

The service was great and the rooms were fantastic! For what I paid I will definately recommend and stay again for the next function we have... More

We stayed at Quest Southbank for a week in September with three adults and two children in a two bedroom executive apartment. We decided to stay at Quest based on recommendations from friends who have previously spent time there. Check-in was friendly and efficient; the room was modern and very clean with a balcony overlooking parts of the Yarra and... More
