The apartments are well located near the main shops and the beach, with various brochures available in the reception area. Overall the ladies in reception were friendly and helpful. Our apartment was quite spacious with two bedrooms, with all the facilities expected.We stayed two nights with the first night (Saturday) being kept awake until 1.30am with loud music and noise...

We stayed one night in a two bed apartment with our three year old grandaughter as part of our trip to see the Penguin Parade. On my online booking I requested an apartment on the ground floor as I thought it would be easier with the little one in tow and my request was honoured. We didn't hear any noise... More

We stayed at Quest Apartments Phillip Island for the weekend and had a wonderful time. Firstly, the location of the apartments are just a moments walk from the main street which is full of shops and restaurants. Our apartment was a 2 bedroom apartment which was incredibly spacious, very clean and offered everything we needed (including a great kitchen to... More

Researched a lot on where to stay for a nice weekend away and based on photos and reviews this seemed like a good place(I did notice some of the negative comments but thought nothing of it). The apartments are certainly dated, despite discovering they are not that old (apparently). There were cracks in the skirting, marks on all the walls,... More

Thank you for posting your review.

The location is excellent, being reasonably quiet but within 150 metres of the main street and also the foreshore with its pier, beach, treed picnic area and children's playground. We had two ground floor double bedroom serviced apartments and the remarks for both apartments are the same. The living room, kitchen and bedrooms were clean, of a good standard and... More

I like the location of the apartments as it is near many restaurants and also 2 groceries stores. The room is of a good size for the 2 adults and 2 children in our party.

The location of these Quest apartments is excellent, a 3 minute walk to whatever you want to do in Cowes, you can basically ditch the car. Check in was swift but not overly friendly which was identical to my experience when I rang to confirm the day before. The list of house rules when you arrive are not that welcoming... More

We had always wanted to see the penguin parade on Phillip Island and somehow, the Quest in Cowes seemed well-placed for a 3-night stay. We were generally happy with what we expect of a serviced apartment, just don't ask for a daily towel service :-( The apartment we booked had in-unit washer & dryer, which was very convenient, except that...

Stayed there for one night so we could see the penguins without busting a gut travelling. Ideal for two couples - apartment was comfortable and well equipped with shops five minutes away.
