“All you need from a short stay apartment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stayed here 10 days at the beginning of December and returned late December for another two nights. The rooms are good size, we had twice a great balcony and the kitchens are equiped with the basics that you need. We received great service on check in and the rooms are serviced very well.

What I really appreciated were the emphasis that the staff put on the fact that these are apartment hotels with many guests, so no party, no loud noise late at night and no big groups with sleeping bags in a small apartment. We heard one lady explaining this over the phone to someone enquiring and it was also explained to a group of young people checking in.

Excellent location behind Southern Cross if you come from Tullamarine with the Skybus.

Room Tip: We had a room towards the stadium both times and that was fine, but I can imagine that the rooms fac...

I attended a conference in Melbourne and the Quest Apartments, Docklands was very handy. The location is superb, the rooms are clean and spacious. The staff were friendly, professional and very helpful and had superior knowledge of travel arrangements within the city. I would highly recommend the use of this hotel.

This was my first stay at the Quest Apartments but it won't be my last! The customer service provided on our arrival was amazing, nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was fantastic, unfortunately we did stay long enough to enjoy all of the hotel's facilities, but will definitely be back.

Spent just the one night in a studio room as we had a function near by. Found the room very clean, bed was comfortable and the staff were very friendly and efficient. Would stay again in the future.

Only consideration - our studio room was very small and did get traffic noise from Bourke St.

Quest Docklands has quite a lot going for it but probably # 1 is its excellent location, right next to key transport nodes like Southern Cross station, tram lines, airport bus station as well as Etihad Stadium. (Note that rates can go through roof when there is a big game on at Etihad). There are plenty of restaurants, bars and a supermarket close by.
Apartments are spacious - studios as well as one-bedders - and come with a well-equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer, a proper dining table, etc - all the mod cons you could reasonably expect.
On-site parking also available for a relatively small additional fee. It is certainly not bargain basement territory, but reasonable value considering all the inclusions.

Dear JElliot32,

Thank you for your wonderful review and recommendation, it was great to read that you are a regular guest at Quest Docklands.

Our newly refurbished One Bedroom Apartments are wonderful rooms, ideal for extended stays or anyone who values space and convenience when travelling to Melbourne. Featuring a full kitchen, separate spacious open plan living and dining area that extends out to a balcony, master bedroom with king or queen bed and bathroom with private laundry facilities. If you need to get down to business, the full sized writing desk with high speed internet access will ensure you stay connected. Or if you want to simply relax the 42” HD LED TV with Foxtel, DVD player and iPod dock are sure to keep you entertained.

The Studio Apartments have all been refurbished as well and now included a lounge chair and improved bedside lighting, I agree that these apartments are spacious when compare to a hotel room.

We would like to thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at Quest Docklands and for letting fellow travellers know about the great facilities and services we have to offer, as well as our fantastic location.

Once again thanks for your recommendation, we look forward to welcoming you back to Quest Docklands!

Was there for a week from Oct 19 to 26 for business. Had a one bedroom apartment. Perfect location, near the office. About 5 minutes walk to The Goods Shed tram station which can get you straight to the CBD.
Room was clean and equipped with all facilities of a serviced apartment. Microwave, fridge, cooking stove, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, and anyting else that you can think of.
Shower and tub comes together, which might be a hassle to some. One thing that caught my attention was the mugs that I left on the coffee table were not washed by the housekeeper. Apparently they only wash whats inside the sink.
They also had this DVD rental service for free. Also 1 hour free wifi, but limited at the foyer area only. No wifi available in room, only wired access with a fee.
Room was $209 a night. Will definitely choose this hotel again on my future trip to Docklands.

The studio room was comfortable and allowed us to do our own cooking and laundering. Room was immaculately clean when serviced (we stayed for 10 days, full sevicing occurred 3 times) Location was very convenient as it was on the same concourse as Etihad Stadium. Fantastic for events held there. Close to Southern Cross Station, restaurants and hotels/taverns. Service was excellent and we were not disturbed. A little on the pricy side; ~$245 per night. I suppose to be expected as it was during AFL season and WA school holidays.
