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. And after some thirty hours of travel, I so appreciated how patient and helpful the staff were. I had problems with the... More

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

I stayed in the Quest on Dorcas for 3 nights on a business trip. Main reason for me was to be close to the business area in South Melbourne where I needed to go.

Stayed for three nights as part of a road trip. Prepaid through Quest website and got parking included in the building on our floor level (usually $15 per day extra) and a great price. Even got upgraded to a 2 bed executive apartment when we booked a 1 bedroom executive. Cleanliness, comfort and level of appointments was excellent. Friendly staff.... More

Chance booking for Oz Tennis Open - not a lot available at a reasonable price. Apartment suited our needs perfectly - clean, ample size with separate bedroom and was fully self contained meaning that we could choose to eat in.

Stayed here as everything else in Melbourne seemed booked out. Lucky choice as the hotel was clean, comfortable and cheap. Modern decor and the apartment was spacious. All staff seemed friendly and it's only a couple of minutes from the central area of Melbourne. Would stay again.
