Our family group had 2 apartments for 2 nights. Facilities, cleanliness and front desk assistance all excellent. Great location for exploring on foot, many good eating/drinking options in immediate area. Easy walk to CBD, parks and theatres/galleries. Overall, a great experience as long as you don't select Quest for stunning views from your room.

We had a great 3 day getaway staying at Quest as a group of 8. We had 2 x 2 bedroom apartments which were well equipped. We all found the beds comfy but the pillows were a little flat, nothing to complain about though. The girls at reception were more than helpful with advice on where to eat, how to... More

The room at first Site looked tiny but once you open the curtains to the windows it opened up the place.. The Melbourne light where beautiful at night.. We had TV in the bedroom and lounge which was good but only limited Foxtel channels...overall great apartment to stay out and ideal location to the Cbd From Billy and Nato

Great value and top quality, good facilities. location is just outside the city centre. Limited car parks but there is another parking lot just outside. Very large and spacious rooms. The only thing I would criticise is that they take 500 dollars from your bank account for about a week for a bond I would say, but I think a... More
