This place is like a cheap airport hotel but in the city, poor service, carpet is filthy, rooms tiny, in our room there was a hole in the shower ceiling from mould from the shower above, shower rail loose, shower hose split and shooting out water, shower head broken and water flying out every where. Next door in a new... More

This hotel is located in the Ponsonby area, with many shops and a park right outside the door. We enjoyed the half hour walk to the harbour. The suite we reserved was perfect for two couples, each bedroom having its own bathroom, then a shared living room and kitchen area. We stayed a year ago - at that time you... More

I booked this on expedia, said 4.5 stars, I really don't know where they get these numbers from but certainly not accurate. The property is located on noisy main road, it is not clean and looks run down, even around reception entrance there is building leftovers and so on. I asked for another room and was given a ground floor... More

Terrible Customer Service, not helpful & rude. The the "daily clean" consisted of tucking in the bed sheets & giving the bench a wipe - meant the apartment was grime filled from the start. Wifi was ridiculously expensive. Plenty of better options at this price.

Very hard beds with terrible pillows. Noisy neighbors kept us up all night with banging doors (poorly sound insulated) Considering this was rated at 4.5 Stars by hotwire I was not impressed. Also wifi is $15 per 400Mb or $60 for 1G. Seems hotels think its the early 90's and you can't get mobile data for cheaper than that.

A well laid out apartment, with good kitchen facilities. Has Sky with some relevant channels. The main issue is to do with Internet access. Paid $10 for 1GB for 24 hours but could not access even for half an hour on one gadget. Initially we could not access at all. When contacted, received very arrogant service with the attitude that...

We have used Quest rooms for overnight stops elsewhere, although they are clearly aimed at a business market. This one was not as good as our previous experiences. The room was fine - spacious, well equipped, great bed. The location is great, ideal for Ponsonby restaurants and bars and a $2 bus ride to the city centre. However it was... More

I recently booked 6 nights and requested a room away from the road as we had our 11 week old son with us. Unbeknown to us, there was a massive construction site right out side our window. Its in the very early stages and won't be completed until 2016 sometime. Obviously there was no mention that this was taking place.... More

I'm currently staying here for a week. I like the size of the room and the fact that I have a balcony. However, I find the room a bit dirty (black hair in the shower,dirty shower, dirty whiteware, tiny bit of blood on the blanket, lots of dust everywhere etc..). Overall, the whole room needs a very good cleaning....you can... More

Our stay at the Quest was to avoid taxi fare or drink driving after a long dinner at our favourite restaurant in Ponsonby so we really only spent time in the room sleeping. This is an average property, no frills and our room had a view of a large pit where lots of construction was going on. So a good... More
