Stayed here for a week. Found the location good with plenty of cafés and restaurants near by, also a tram stop at the top of the road so was quick to travel around. The apartment contained everything we needed and the cleaners came daily if required. The gym was well equipped and always quiet when I visited which was a... More

stayed here for a weekend away in Melbourne, staff were very friendly and accommodating. Executive 1 bedroom Room was clean and spacious. Didn't like the added costs associated to requests such as an hour later checkout ($10) and room with a view ($20/per night), usually find that sort of request is granted if a hotel can accommodate at the time....

We loved our stay. Our apartment was very clean and comfortable. We had a two bedroom for 2 adults and 4 children and there was more than enough room for all of us ( 2 bathrooms). Easy tram ride into the city off St Kilda Rd. Fantastic views of city and botanical gardens. Parking. Beds comfortable. Quiet. Supermarkets near by.... More

I can't agree more that this hotel has very clean rooms. I stayed several times here during my trip to Melbourne and each time, the room given is very clean. The staff are really friendly and helpful, from recommending places for breakfasts to even in assisting refunds. As we returned several times, the staff even remembered our names. Thumbs up... More

I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on a trip to Melbourne with a few friends in June 2014. I can not recommend Quest on Dorcas more highly. The location is fantastic - opposite the Botanic Gardens and with a tram stop at the end of the street the CBD is only minutes away. A close walk to shops and... More

When you are visit Melbourne, this is my number 1 recommendation. This property has it all, location, spacious clean rooms, views, welcoming and extremely friendly staff. Overall a 10/10! Walk out of the property straight onto a tram and you are in the CBD within minutes, feel like an early morning walk around the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, they... More

Stayed in the one bedroom and it was perfectly sized. It had a little kitchen which is very well equipped, a living hall and a nice one bedroom with a toilet that has laundry services.

Had a marvelous stay at the Quest on Dorcas. The location could not have been better -- just two blocks from our local office. My room was enormous and clean, with all the amenities I could ask for.

Stayed here based on a good price through one of the accommodation websites. Being familiar with Melbourne I knew it was near to public transport and not too far from the CBD. I also had a couple of places in South Melbourne I wanted to explore. This place was perfect and our room looked out on the Shrine of Remembrance... More
