a bit old and tired in places, but clean and functional with plenty of space. We chose this due to sporting committments which were about 2 minutes away. Just down the road towards melbourne we found some shops and cafes which were great, and it was only a 15min drive into the city on a saturday night. we had rooms... More

We stayed here because we had a wedding to attend in the area. I never did work out where we were in relation to the CBD. However our apartment was very comfortable. There were 2 bedrooms upstairs plus a sofa bed and 2 spare mattresses in a Harry Potter cupboard under the stairs. There was also a bathroom with shower... More

We had room 19 which is one of a long row of two-storey units that run alongside one of the busiest roads I've ever slept near. If you are a car-racing fan and love the sound of screeching tryes all night, you'll love this place.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We liked the space and the beds, which were really comfortable. But we could hardly sit on the couches, which were all bent through. The bathroom and some of the furniture could do with a renovation or renewal.

Pleasantly appointed facilities. Spacious and light. Friendly & thoughtful service. Good location; everything we needed was within a 30 minute drive. Value for money. Clean and neat. Reasonably easy to find. Good parking. Great accommodation for families or small groups.

We spent seven days at the Alphington Quest. There were ten of us in our group spread over four apartments. Each one was riddled with problems. My first two nights were spent on a mattress on the floor, with the family of ants from the kitchen. The pillows were like lumps of cement, and there were short, dark hairs inside... More

Friends had recommended Quest apartments for when we visited Melbourne - but I don't think they had the Alphington property in mind. As other reviewers have pointed out, these apartments are tired, shabby, over-priced and located next to a busy freeway (don't be fooled by the approach drive which gives the impression of seclusion - the freeway's at the back!)....

This property was a bit of a disappointment. Photos on web site looked much better than the actual property. Apartments look great on the outside, but inside they are tired and in need of refurbishment. Beds very uncomfortable and pillows hard as a rock. I had 2 pillows stuffed into one slip. However, the rooms were at least clean. Staff... More

The apartment was large and had good facilities, but the traffic noise made it almost impossible to sleep. The place needs doubIe glazing, as apart from the noise the windows were drafty. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. We wished we'd stayed in the city.

This property was a huge disappointment. Despite being advertised as being on a "quiet street", our apartment was on the side of a major road with 24 hour noise and trucks. Truly horrible. Everything was broken, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, all the windows and doors downstairs. One window was wedged open and about 50 mosquitoes came in when the sun... More
