I am glad to have only booked for one night. The staff were minimally hospitable. Unlike most accommodation this day and age, the WiFi was not free. The room took hours to warm up to a level that one could work on my computer in without blanket/coat etc. It was a clean, pleasant and amenities of a good standard.

We loved this place. HUGE ROOMS and made to feel welcome straight away. Parking was hard later in the night, but other than that, I can't fault it! Clean and comfy beds. The location is great and you can walk to all the great restaurants Wonderful honeymoon stop ... should have stayed longer than two nights

My husband and I stayed here with another couple in a 2 bedroom apartment to break up a trip between Adelaide and Bright. We had an enormous 2 bed apartment that provided good privacy for both couples - each had their own bathroom. The apartment was nicely decorated and clean with good kitchen facilities and a shared lounge area. The... More

Stayed here for business in a One Bedroom, was very clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed. Staff were very friendly, professional and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Have stayed at other places in town but this is the best by far and one of the better Quest around too.....was very impressed and will be back.

Our last stop before heading home, we chose the studio room on the ground floor and it had all the things you need and was clean and very comfortable. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and answered a few questions with expertise.

We stayed here because we couldn't get home due to fires. Michelle, the manager in duty was fantastic and went out of her way to make sure that we had everything we needed, including dinner waiting when we arrived!
