“Great place stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We requested last minute accommodation at Quest after a hiccup with our pre-booked accommodation. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and our apartment was fabulous. Location, parking, apartment, staff - all wonderful. Thanks for a comfortable stay.

This was the second time that we stayed at the Quest Phillip Island. It is a good reliable apartment hotel and the staff are really good. However it is starting to show its age. Good location, good pool, good parking. Good place for kids. Time for a renovation inside though.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool.

I booked this accomodation last minute, and the family and I are so happy we did. The room needed a bit of freshening, but activity wise it was perfect for us. Close enough to the beach and to the town. It was quiet enough for us too. Only problem was that only access to floors was via stairs, and the TV picture was pixelating alot (the kids complaint). I dont think it was expensive for a 3 bedroom apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This accommodation is spacious and well located in the town of Cowes. The general ambiance of the two bedroom apartment we had was fine and although a little wear and tear is showing we were quite comfortable.
The downfall here is the kitchen. There was not the basic kitchen utensils, pots and pans etc. we have come to expect in serviced apartments. This meant we were not able to prepare the meal we had planned and needed to go to a restaurant for dinner.Mind you it was a good restaurant.
Phillip Is is a fabulous place to visit even in the stormy weather that we experienced for the two days we were there. Make sure you visit the A Maze 'N Things, it is great.

Room Tip: Take your own kitchen stuff

We have a gift voucher which expired six months ago so i called to see if they would be kind enough to extend the voucher so that we could redeem it and was told after many calls back and forth (the franchisee was away) that "they would meet me half way" by me having to pay an additional $285.00 for one of the nights. The two nights voucher was already paid for at $430.00, making the total two night stay $715.00! Wotif is showing the property at $570.00 for two nights...........

Spent a fabulous weekend getaway at quest cowes. Had a two bedroom apartment for three people which was fabulous. Loved everything about this place, it was clean, quiet, comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was perfect being a two minute walk to the beach and shops but tucked away from noise. We were there on schoolies weekend and had no issue with noise whatsoever. The manager was very helpful and we loved the outdoor hot spa and pool. Will definitely be going back for another weekend. Thank you quest cowes!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for a one night stay on Phillip Island because of the Penguin Parade viewing which would end late. A 2 hour drive back to melbourne was not desirable.
The location was right in Cowes, within walking distance to the main shopping and dining street. Close but not noisy.

It was good value for a 2 bedroom apartment, but note that there was only one toilet / shower.

The apartment was clean and tastefully furnished with a nice basic kitchen. We had asked for a ground floor apartment as this property is all stairs - no elevator. So families with accessibility issues please make a request for a ground floor unit.

Appliances seem to be slightly worn - the dryer unit timing dial was stuck at 150min. It still functioned but no way to set the timer - just turn off the power at the mains when you are done. The stove control dials had all icons scrubbed off by the enthusiastic cleaning staff. No biggie, just trial and error to get it going.....Probably just an issue with that particular unit....

Note to bird watchers: There were plenty of wild parakeets and lories in the surrounding trees on the property, so its nice to see these birds in their natural environment.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor unit if you have accessibility issues. All stairs and no lifts.
