“Nicest way to bring in New Years '10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2010

I booked this hotel at the last mintue before NYE with not much on offer, I am totally glad I did. Quay West is beautiful hotel in a central location right on Southbank alongside Melbourne's famous river the yarra. It's just one step out the door close to a plethora of great restuarants, shops, arts centre and casino.

As for the hotel itself, it sports a grand indoor heated pool, spa and gym. The bedroom is spacious with crisp linen. If you are a woman who likes to spread out when getting ready you will adore the bathroom. It has a standing shower (Yes! I dislike standing in baths), a bath (if you do want one) ample bench space for all your cosmetics and huge bath fluffy towels! We had the room with the nice mini kitchenette, plasma & a balcony with terrific views of Melbourne. Yeah, it's a few $$$, but you get what you pay for.

Great experience in the Quay West. The rooms are spacious and clean. Most of them feature a kitchen and dining area. However each day I woke up thanks to loud demolition work in front of the hotel. I would recommend to call the reception to check how the construction has progressed.

An excellent stay. Possibly the very best location in Melbourne. Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable, and a small problem with the washing machine was fixed promptly with a smile. A noticeable feature was how well equipped the rooms were. Recommended unhesitatingly.

I had an absolutely wonderful time here! I pulled up about 11:00 A.M., and someone leapt to my aid with all my heavy bags. I was planning on storing them while I dropped off the rental car, but they arranged for it to be picked up right there. Even though I was very early, they found me a room - and upgraded me - to a fantastic suite overlooking the city and just steps away from the Southgate entrance. Dish washer, clothes washer, microwave, fridge, etc. etc. Soooo nice. I sat on my balcony, sipping wine, and people-watching as the sun set and the city lights came up. Spectacular. Then, I strolled over to an exquisite pre-theater meal special at the Edge (before 7:00!) in Southgate. I booked my stay through Mileage Plus - costly number of miles - (about 35,000) - but it was my last day and I wanted something special. They sure came through! Highly recommend!

We recently stayed in Quay West in Brisbane and Melbourne so can compare. The apartments in Melbourne are very good as expected - well decorated, good location, friendly staff. Some glitches (faulty dishwasher). Room service very mediocre (overcooked hamburger) and breakfast OK but not as good as at the Brisbane Quay West. Husband not happy as did not have FoxSports 3 in Melbourne (but did in Brisbane). Also unlike Brisbane no public access computer for quick internet checks e.g. for flights etc. So overall a very good experience and would definitely stay there again but could be abetter particularly in relation to the food.
