Quest Newmarket Serviced Apartments

Reviewed May 5, 2009

I had two nights here. The front desk people were accommodating. There are some decent shops in the area but maybe not if you come from the States or Europe. All very middle-of-the road. They told me that DOWNTOWN was a 45 minute walk or $7 in a taxi. I took a taxi as it was raining and it was $25. I doubt I could walk it in the allotted time (and I do fast walks). It's ok but I find it hard to be enthusiastic, I'm afraid. Certainly no night life in this area. I reckon I'd stay at one of the Downtown hotels next time.

Good location, surrounded by small bars, cafes and restaurants. Cinema and swimming if that's your thing across the road. No restaurant in the hotel but you have the kitchenette and plenty of supermarkets around, or you can order a breakfast pack (I didn't so cannot comment on the service) but the much better option is to wander across the road to Mecca coffeeshop for the Eggs Benedict.

The room was clean, decent size, comfortable bed and so on. Washing machine included, so had I felt so inclined I could have amused myself with my laundry, however on balance I decided on the pub and bring the dirty kit home.

My only reservation would be the very close proximity to Newmarket train station and if, as mine did, your room was overlooking the platform, the noise could be intrusive.

We had booked a two night stay at a four star? hotel in nearby Parnell. However on arrival were not impressed by the outdated and tired appearance of the rooms. This meant we had to find alternative accommodation in a hurry. We decided to try the Quest Apartments in Newmarket. When we opened the door to the one bedroom apartment we knew we had made a good choice. The living room was clean and furnished to a high standard. The bedroom was small but nicely presented with good linen and drapes. The bathroom contained a washer and dryer and the kitchen was well appointed and included a dishwasher. Overall we were impressed and would stay here again. The link bus into the city stops around the corner and plenty of good restraunts nearby. Also within walking distance of the museum.

This place was immaculate! A wonderful place to stay, beautifully kept and presented. Would recommend this to anyone! Nice quiet apartments. Close to shops and would recommend eating at Rika.

Quest is a chain of Serviced apartments - they are all over the place - this one is in Newmarket just off the main street (broadway) at the city end. It is located behind a large complex of cinemas which are ontop a large swimming complex. The location is good, walking distance to plenty of great resturants and shops - and being the city end very close to areas like Parnell and the CBD. If you want to be in newmarket then this is a good choice location wise and gives easy access to surrounding suburbs and motorways.

The apartments are modern as the building is very new and are apointed to a good standard. The studio i was in has everything one would need for a stay including - own aircon, small kitchen and washer and dryer. The studio had the worlds smallest deck - literall 1 tile width but no matter as the views are of carparks and other office buildings

The biggest downside to this place is its actual location - it is right next to a main railway line and near a point where cars cross that line. As such every train that passes is extemely noisy and activates warning bells at the barrier arms - these all start at 5.30 am and go on till late - at peak time expect a train every 10mins or so. If your into trains then this could be heaven - if your into sleeping in then maybe not.

The hotel has no resturant etc which is no big deal - and parking is not free and you need to book it - approx 15 per day.

Service is fine - but being a serviced apt block is one person behind a desk during work hours and a phone for after that.

All in all could be excellent but runied by the trains.

PS Trip advisor currently lists this as Waiheke Island - its definately not - or anywhere close ( you have to take a boat to waiheke for a start) - check out a map before booking if unsure.
