“Best apartment I have ever stayed in!!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Quest east stkilda very good value for money.... Best one bedroom apartment I have ever had the pleasure of staying in .... Well presented spacious rooms two televisions, comfortable temperatures and clean... The pool and spa were wonderful ... We ordered a nice pizza delivered from a local restaurant was 8/10 taste but took 2 hours to be delivered... The continental breakfast at quest east stkilda was definantely not value for money and quite disappointing.

Stayed on Thursday 1st of May and Friday 2nd of May 2014 for a business trip. The entrance to the hotel was a bit hidden away, but signposted well. Parking was free and close to the entrance of the hotel. Reception staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions about local eateries and convenience shops.

I stayed in a 1 bedroom spa apartment. The cleanliness was outstanding. Hotel was well appointed, I could have cooked a meal in the room had I chosen to, everything to hand. Only a bar-sized fridge in the kitchen, but it was adequate.

The bed was comfortable - my only complaint would be that there was no electric blanket. There were spare pillows and a blanket in the closet, though, and the room temperature was easily controllable.

Best of all, it was quiet and - rare in a hotel - had awesome drapes. I sleep poorly in lit rooms, but slept until my alarm went off both mornings.

Overall, happy with the hotel and I would definitely stay again for either business or pleasure.

First impression enhanced by Stephanie's friendly demeanour at the desk. Pleasant grounds, ample free parking for guests and pleasant interior decor. Our standard suite was roomy, clean and quiet at night. Only three problems; Their wifi was not strong enough, the printer didn't work on the guest's computers in the lobby and we had noisy water pipes when the taps were turned full on. Despite this it is reasonably priced and handy to where we want to be in Melbourne.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you experience at Quest East St Kilda was a positive one and enjoyed our spacious Standard Suites.

Regarding the guest printer, this was temporarily out of order, which has now been rectified. We apologize if this caused you any inconvenience.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Quest East St Kilda.

Stayed here for a night at the end of March. Had a spa room which was very roomy. The bed was very comfortable and had a great sleep.
Nice and quiet - did not hear other guests or any road traffic as it is well situated off the street. Lots of cafes and restaurants within walking distance.
Would stay again.

Stayed here for one night in February, before journeying the next morning on the Spirit of Tasmania - an easy drive to the ferry with no hassles of checking out early.

Enjoyed staying here - the reception staff were lovely and so helpful with all my questions - parking was free and close to the main doors (so, secure - important to me with all my worldly possessions in my car!) once the restaurant had closed for the night. We ordered Italian food from a partnering restaurant nearby - they offered free delivery to the apartments, so that was a lovely touch. The room was big, comfortable and quiet, out of the city but with public transport nearby for those wanting to go into the city. ~$60 taxi ride from here to the airport in case anyone is wondering. My only negative was that the air conditioning unit was very loud in the room (it was a hot weekend when I was there, so it had to be on). Unfortunately didn't get a chance to try out the spa!
I would stay here again if I am wanting to stay out of the CBD in a clean apartment.

Room Tip: We were in a spa suite (one room + bathroom) on the ground floor near the entrance. Room was big en...

Stayed here in January on the long weekend. Good location with trams to heart of St Kilda close by or a 25 min walk if your keen. Good restaurants, cafes close by. The hotel has nice grounds. The room we had was a spa room which was good, the pool and spa is indoors so was a bit cool but would be good in winter as it can be heated. The restaurant wasnt opened on the Sunday night due to a private function so parking wasnt available onsite but street parking was easy close by. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, bar fridge isnt stocked so plenty of room for your BYO and I thought all in all good value for money

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and were impressed overall. The room was a good size and the hotel is in a quiet area away from the hustle & bustle of the main city. We were slightly apprehensive having read some of the other reviews but we got a great deal for 3 nights so though we would give it a go.
On the downside the hotel is quite far from the main tourist area of St Kilda and also Melbourne city itself however as we had a car and free parking is included this was not a problem to us. The tram stops nearby so its not really an issue without a car either!
The rooms are clean and of a good size and the pool was a nice bonus too.

Room Tip: The spa bath room was a nice bonus and not too much extra
