I stayed here for 5 months and it became a home not just a rented apartment. The staff were always smiling and friendly. The apartment was roomy, always cleaned beautifully and it was quiet - a must for me. Terrific position by Flemington racecourse and with the tram to the city on the doorstep. Would recommend it for short or long-term stays.

We've just had a wonderful five days at Quest Flemington in a very spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. We had views to the track at Flemington. A very exciting place to stay during the Carnival or at anytime. Lovely and peaceful with lovely lovely staff. Great place for a family, the business traveller or friends get together. Close to Zoos, Tram and Train and small strip shopping. Absolutely ideal for the races with a leisurely stroll to the track. Thanks to Theresa and her wonderful staff for our excellent stay and for her insight goss on all things Flemington, especially the Race course info. Very happy to recommend again.

Room Tip: As there is no lift, book ground floor if you have mobility issues. Some of the upper storey accomm...

While this property may lack an on-site restaurant (it is an apartment complex not a hotel) it makes up for that in every other way. The three (queen) bedroom apartment I occupied had every comfort required. Furnishings were excellent + two bathrooms. Staff were very efficient and friendly and all queries were dealt with promptly. It is a 5 minute walk from the very frequent No. 57 tram (about 15 minute ride to city) and perhaps just a few more minutes to shopping centre, coffee, food etc. Wi-fi is free. It is convenient to race track and showgrounds and quiet, despite being on a busy road.

I recently spent 5 nights at this property after attending a function at Melbourne Showgrounds.

Having stayed here before I knew what to expect and found the apartment to be very comfortable and thankfully despite being on a busy road, very quiet at night.

Overall the apartment was well fitted out, despite a couple of minor things (such as the soaptray in the shower that sticks out so far you can't bend or move without hitting it) but those aside it suited my needs and found the staff to be very accommodating to any requests.

My only real gripe was in the way staff handled our exit, calling and letting us know we had 15 minutes to vacate or would fine us $100, not even budging by 5 minutes (yes I was probably told checkout time when checking in, but after 5 x 14 hour days I'd long forgotten that information)....personally I'd have preferred a courtesy call an hour or 30 minutes before, at least I wouldn't have run out the door in a disheveled state and it wouldn't have ended my stay on a sour note.

That aside I'd highly recommend this property to anyone with any need to be in the area close to Flemington Racecourse or the Melbourne Showgrounds.

I chose to stay at this Quest as I was speaking at a business conference on site the next morning. The suite I had was very comfortable though it is starting to show signs of age and budget build quality.

With no restaurant on site, it's a 5min walk around to the local Woolies where I was able to stock up on the basics for dinner and breakfast.

The hotel is right on Flemington race course and seems convenient for anyone needing to be in the western suburbs for business. It's a ways out of the city...

Overall it was pretty good - if I'm in that area again I'd probably choose this hotel.

This week I had to do some Training at Flemington with Amaze (Autism Australia) and so I stayed at Quest because of the location. It was a great place to stay. Reasonably priced, and lots of room. There was a washing machine, dryer, full size fridge and stove and everything you need. They even left a Ravioli in the fridge compiments of the management. I would recommend this place, as it was very comfortable. They even left orange juice, and plunger coffee and biscuits. A very nice change, and I was able to walk to supermarket and Training easily. Free parking too.
