“Good quality suites at excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

This is a very good Hotel suite at premium location by the Southgate at Melbourne’s South Bank. It is closed to all the attractions within short walking distance.
We had a one bedroom suite facing the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) with a good view to the Art Centre. There were 3 small balconies around the Suite providing good open-air view of Melbourne. it was very well decorated and furnished to a high standard, there was a very well equipped Kitchen with a washer/dryer for the laundrette. Service was good and the staffs were friendly, helpful and provided prompt service especially the valet parking service.
The Southgate Food Court and shopping complex is right next door, so very convenient.
The breakfast was somewhat disappointing with very limited choice of fresh fruit and other items that you would normally expect for such high quality hotel, but the service was good, they were quiet happy to provide freshly made omelette for us.
We enjoyed the stay at the Quay West, it was very comfortable with very good service.

This was a family weekend for my daughter's 40th. We had 2 suites. I booked them months ahead and was disappointed that they were not on the same floor. I had requested this, and had booked so far ahead, I could not see why it was not possible. The staff were great, very helpful, and our suites were huge, pretty good. We had great views, although far superior in one of the suites. The location was sujperb. We had dinner at Southgate and walked into the city the next morning.
We had been able to leave our car there, so this was great. I would recommend it for overseas visitors, as you would not need a car to see Melbourne city if you were staying here.
It was very expensive though, and this would certainly put me off booking there again.

Room Tip: Try to book a suite, as they are the best. Ours overlooked the river and city and views were great.

What a nice place to stay in central Melbourne and so close to everything. There is a nice pool and sauna on the 5th floor. The room was comfortable and there are larger rooms/appartments for those with children or groups of friends. The room was also set up for eating in and getting your own breakfast. There is a 7 11 store around the corner for food stuff and a grog shop close by.

We stayed 2 nights at Quay West in a 1 bedroom suite. We originally paid for a premium city view suite after calling them and being told they look directly over the river and city. Upon entering the room We realised our city view was of St Kilda rd. We rang reception straight away and after calm but stern words (from both sides) with the reception we were moved to the room we organised to stay in. The girl was not very apologetic but did organise the change of rooms for us and was polite through the conversation.
Rooms are well furnished (lounge suit not very comfortable as is the case in most apartments so we are used to it) Bed comfortable and everything clean. View is awesome form living area and bedroom but due to the position/shape of the building not all rooms would have these views. Make sure you spell that out very clearly that you want direct city views and ask them to make a note in the booking.
Breakfast was good, they will make you fresh cooked eggs so dont be afaid to ask. Parking not cheap but sometimes you can get a package deal with parking, breakfast and late checkout.
Over all great experience and we would go back again.

Room Tip: Direct City Views are great but limited. Higher floors also quieter.

We had difficulty finding the apartments so rang reception and they guided us through the area. The front end staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We chose a City View apartment and although only on the 3rd floor, had a great view of Flinders Street Station and Yarra River. We were just a short 2-3 min wander along Southbank from the Casino. The room was very well appointed with a large bath. Everything you could want was in the apartment for a stay from 1 day to 1 month. If you have to pay for the breakfast, it's not worth anythong more than $15 and the staff are lazy so I suggest take a stroll along Southbank and find some amazing places to eat. The apartments are right next to the street market at the Art Gallery which operates on Sundays. You can find some beautiful things there that are made by the stall holders. Alternatively take a boat ride along the Yarra or catch the free tourist tram around Melbourne.

Room Tip: The one bedroom apartments have a pull out couch in the lounge room catering for another 2 people.

As repeat guests, our family finds this hotel extremely pleasing. We stay several times throughout the year during the football season. The wonderful staff are welcoming and professional who are always making our stay enjoyable.
The fantastic central location is perfect, so close to all major attractions. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well maintained suiting our family of four. Our two young boys find the indoor pool a must every time we stay. The customer service is one of the main reasons we chose to stay at the lovely Quay West Suites.
