Quest Gordon Place was a bit of a surprise on entering. Didn't quite expect the long walk to reception. It is an old building so don't go expecting a modern building. Staff were very welcoming and helpful at all times. Lovely pool area, although I didn't get to use the pool. It is in a central place, with a short walk to Chinatown with a huge selection of good food and also a couple of good restaurants over the road. Also close to the free circular tram and other trams to get around. When I asked about a lift to go down to our room, I was told there was no lift, so they offered to take the suitcases down the 2 flight of stairs, but only need to ask the reception staff for help. Although I don't think we should have to ask, it should be an automatic service. My mother is 87, so it took a while for her to go up and down the stairs and she did comment on the dark carpet, dark bricks and poor lighting which made it difficult going up and down.
The people in the room above us walked very heavily on the floor, so we could hear them up until 11 pm some nights. The shower screeched until the hot water tap was turned on fully.
Apart from some negatives, our room, no 33 in the basement had easy access to the pool area and was very cool.
