Just a short stroll to flinders street, local cafes and trams. If you are lucky to have a room with the view of the war memorial is amazing! I recommend heading over for a look the view form the top is amazing. Rooms are nicely fitted out. I would recommend including moisturiser in your complimentary items though.

We were a family group travelling to Melbourne for a family wedding. We booked 2 X 2 B/R apartments (with 2 bathrooms) and 1 X 1 B/R apartment to accommodate the 9 adults and 1 child. All apartments were situated on the same floor, next door and across from one another so it made getting togther so much easier. All... More

Apartments are really good well maintained. Clean and everything you need. Loads of room and all the facility's Required supplied. Within easy reach of shops bars and local town. Will certainly use again. On down side couple of noisy neighbours doing DIY 6 pm until 12 😡 but no fault of quest

We have stayed here many times. The location is great. Couple of small supermarkets close by. Right opposite are the Botanical gardens, great for the kids to run off energy! A five minute walk and you reach the National Gallery of Victoria, which is free admission. You do need to pay for some of the exhibitions but most are free.... More

We arranged to meet our two sons and their families (a total of 6 adults and 5 children aged 9 to 14)in Melbourne and choose to stay at Quest on Dorcas because of its proximity to the CBD and the tram line. We booked three apartments to accommodate the two families plus grandparents and requested that all apartments were on... More

Good, modern, clean rooms. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and while the bedrooms are relatively small, the 2 bathrooms and generous living & kitchenette space more than made up for this. Its only about 4 tram stops from the cbd and there are plenty of trams routes going past so getting about Melbourne from the Dorcas is easy. I'd... More

Visited Melbourne for the AFL Grand Final. Could have booked hotel rooms in the CBD but chose Quest On Dorcas in South Melbourne as they are full size apartments at a reasonable cost. The apartment # 1112 was a one bedder with kitchen, lounge room, office nook with desk, kitchen and bathroom. The apartment was clean and modern. The location... More

I normally stay around the corner but it was fully booked so I got put here. The accomodation was clean and had modern interior however the bed was rock hard and very uncomfortable and sorrounded streets very loud with trucks/cleaning cars in the morning. Would not stay here again unless there were no other options.

Our 2 bedroom unit was small but adequate. No privacy as lounge windows were extremely close to building next door where you could easily see what office workers were doing and they could see you. Next time would request a different room outlook. Units were extremely clean. Bedding was very comfortable, although tram noise was considerable as we had our... More
