The Quest on Dorcas is like a home away from home. Spacious, elegantly modern, and well appointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the neighborhood perfect. For anyone going to the Australian Open it is a great location. Just a short walk past the botanical gardens and across the river.

The company I work for always use Quest properties, the Quest on Dorcas would have to be up there as 1 of the best, the girls on front desk are always so helpful and the position at south Melbourne is perfect. I know I will be staying here again.

The view from our apartment was beautiful both morning and night. We were overlooking the Shrine of Rememberance - just lovely! The apartment was spotless, very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The location is great - I love the walk into Melbourne CBD along tree-lined St Kilda Road. I highly recommend Quest on Dorcas!

We stayed at quest on Dorcas on NYE for one night. We were happy with it! Comfy Beds, good aircon and a nice space! We didnt spend that much time there as we were out and about. It was pricey but that happens as it was NYE.

I trave a fair bit with work and Melbourne is a regular. Have been to a couple of Quest's and not disappointed yet. Clean, modern, well positioned and friendly. The Quests are fast becoming a favorite as I can cook my own meals and feel a little settled. This place had a gym and was spacious. A great work stay.
