Carlton Clocktower Apartments
Ranked #154 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed July 29, 2008

We stayed at the Quest Clocktower for 5 nights in June and really enjoyed the size of the apartment - it is as large as ours at home. It is very well located among many restaurants and although it is older than other places it is clean and large.

Stayed: June 2008

A few years ago we stayed at Quest on Lygon up the road from the Clocktower and so we were looking forward to similar experience. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. This property is incredibly run down and in dire need of refurbishment. The rooms are fenced in by corigated iron and the room service is basically non-existent.
To its credit, Lygon Street is fantastic and so the location is perfect.

I have stayed at these apartments many times over a number of years and I continue to go back to them because they are roomy and well located.
I have given them an Average rating for the following reason. While the current managers of the property are very keen to make improvements, they are up against individual apartment owners who do not see the need to spend money on refurbishments owing to the fact they have almost a 100% occupancy rate. As a consequence, some of the apartments are in desperate need of new furnishings.
Even so, the apartments are clean and serviced daily (with the exception of Sunday), are 100% non-smoking (with $$ penalty applied for cleaning purposes should a guest ignore the rule), and best of all, are independent of the main office thus enhancing privacy and freedom of entry / departure without constant surveillance of the front desk. In saying that, I should add that the property managers offer good quality service should you require it.
The apartment kitchens are well equipped with crockery, cooking items, dishwasher etc, etc , as are their laundries with washing, drying and ironing facilities. Starter packs for both dishwasher and washing machines are provided.

I stayed here for 9 nights May 3-12. An early check-in was no problem at 9:30am.

I had a 1 bedroom apartment (#9) and can't find anything to complain about. It is pretty big. Great kitchen facilities, large living area with dining room table, separate bedroom with en suite bathroom. There is even laundary facilities in the room! Very convenient for longer trips.

They don't service the rooms on Sunday, but that isn't a big deal. It's actually nice to be able to sleep in without anyone bugging you to get in to change the towels or make the bed.

The rooms are clean, well kept, and comfortable to spend time in. It's pretty basic, but that's all I really needed. It met all my requirements. Great location. Very quiet. Would stay here again.
