I always find the staff so helpful and will try to accommodate our special requests each time we stay. It is close to the gardens and only 10 minutes walk from South Melbourne markets so a great location.

Comfortable, clean and friendly staff. I would stay at the Quest again. The room has good heating and the room is easy to relax in with little outside noise. Well located and not to far from restaurants.

This is a great place to stay, and within walking distance to the trams. If you stay there more than once the staff get to know you and treat you as part of the Quest Family. I have stayed there more than once and always stay there when I'm in Melbourne.

Very comfortable apartment just out of the CBD. Close to all facilities and a great base to explore Melbourne. Staff are eager to please and are helpful. I didn't want to drive through the CBD but still wanted to be close to enjoy the city offerings. Makes travelling around Melbourne quicker if you want to explore and touch base throughout... More

Great place to stay! Excellent position - walking distance to city and sporting areas. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were quiet and well appointed. I will definitely stay here again. So much better to have a suite than a suite than a single room.

When we arrived there we were an hour early and the apartment was ready and we were able to access it straight away, as it was a little chilly we were pleasantly surprised to find the room was already pre heated and was...
