“Nice end of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We have stayed at Gordon Place , when in Melbourne for over thirty tears. Over time different chains have had it. It is a National Trust building, so is very old. The rooms are being re-furbished at the moment...they really need it as they are very "used". We were upgraded to a suite on this trip, and that was much appreciated. Gordon Place is very close to a lot of very good resturaunts in the"top end of town" Studio rooms are very small, but we find they are adequate

Dear Pinehart,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences at Quest Gordon Place. It is very rewarding to have such loyal guests coming back time and time again and go through all the changes with us. As you stated before, we are moving through the process of refurbishing this property - last month we have completed re-painting all of the apartments. Our next step is new furnishings.
It has been a long process for us but we are excited and certainly believe this property is moving in the right direction. We look forward to welcoming you back to Quest Gordon Place again very soon.
Do feel free to contact us prior to your next arrival if you prefer a certain room type or location within the property and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.

Quest Gordon was interesting old building and lovely layout of courtyards with pool in one of them. Cafe was located in hotel. Quiet location but close to Princess Theatre and Chinatown. Free city tram and free city bus nearby. The two bedroom apartment was spacious and had everything we needed.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 43 which was nice and quiet.

I stayed here recently for a weekend in a one bedroom apartment away from the street. The best thing about the apartments is the building, being a renovated apartment building from the 19th century with a central courtyard and great original features.
The apartment was spacious and quiet but a little worn in some areas, the kitchen is well set up with appliances but then hardly any kitchenware is supplied. Internet up to 300mb/day is available by cable but not wi-fi.
The location is great, being at one end of Little Bourke St so close to some great places to eat and drink.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the street if you want a sleep in.

Charming architecture, full of history and great location. Service over Easter was non-existent and state of room was really poor. Carpet was feral and state of bathroom left a lot to be desired. Sauna wasn't working properly and gym facilities do not constitute a gym. Location and look of building only saving grace. Very creaky floors above and below - do don't expect a quiet and tranquil place

Charming place. Old architecture in the city center. Loved it. Room is very comfortable. Ideally located at the end of Chinatown. Clean. Quiet. Good value for money. Only problem was the sauna out of order. Nice swimming pool.

The apartment we got was grubby and careworn -bench tops were tacky; taps in the bathroom and kitchen were leaking; the kitchen one leaked behind the bench causing a mouldy smell through the kitchen area; a small pile of dust and hair was collected behind the toilet door; the halogen downlight in the bathroom was hanging down by the wire; there was no extractor fan in the toilet and the window wouldn't open; all the windows were dirty. The dishwasher came out of the cabinet when you tried to open the door, but this is not a concern because they only give you two plates, two cups, two knives etc - you're not going to use the dishwasher everytime you have a snack. Service is not a strong point: I asked if I could check in for my return flight - sorry not possible. Listen up management - you have a wonderful building, spacious apartments, convenient location and pleasant outlook - make the most of it with upgrading, bright decor and staff training.

Room Tip: Check the room first for cleanliness and things like leaky taps.

Check in quick and easy, as was checkout! Location was great, with in walking distance to everything we needed to visit. We had a two bedroom apartment which was roomy enough but most rooms needed a good clean.. Also outside our room, someone uses it as an ashtray..Overall this place has everything you need but housekeeping lets it down!
