“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Like other reviewers I had a couple of minor issues - a badly stained carpet and the lack of a plug for the sink, but the added extras that come with a studio apartment - like a DVD player, toaster etc more than made up for this in a three day stay.
Staff at reception were friendly and professional both on the phone and in person. The location for anyone doing business near Richmond is terrific. The room was quiet at night. Cafes nearby, and of course, if you are that way inclined - lots of factory outlets.

We were met with very polite friendly staff, the rooms are clean, modern and very spacious, we had a room with a balcony facing Lennox St, the balcony with its table and two chairs was a great place to relax and unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine. If you like shopping apart from being a 10 minute tram ride from the city, the hotel is right next to Bridge Rd a very lengthy shopping area to suit all needs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on Lennox St with a balcony.

Booked a studio apartment for 3 nights Arrived Friday night and was given a room facing Lennox St on the ground floor. Room was small but adequate. A few small issues firstly the tap in the kitchen was very loose needed tightening The fridge did not close properly as the small freezer was full of ice and would not allow the door to close (husband had to chip a lot of ice off to allow the door to close) and thirdly it had privacy and block out blinds in the room the only problem was that obviously one of the privacy blinds had broken sometime previously and had not been replaced so that we had to keep the block out blind down all the time otherwise people walking past could see into the room Also there was 2 blinds going across the window but there was a 4 cm gap between the blinds so early in the morning the light would stream directly onto the bed The room was only serviced once during our stay so we had to go to reception to get fresh towels which was a bit average The location is fantastic so close to everything just leave your car in the car park (dont forget to book a space) and catch public transport or just walk to most places Staff were not overly friendly but because of the location even though we had these issues I would stay again

stayed here for work mid week and parked underneath the only negative i have was the crpark was tight. That said, it was quite ok & I was very happy to have parking available as there was none on the street when i arrived.
The room was clean, quiet & modern and in a great location.
Doesn't have a restaurant or bar, but there are plenty very close by.

Clean rooms and quiet but nothing special. I found the rooms dark and a bit small. I didnt like that the bedroom has no windows. For the price, there is other Motels better.
Great location, 30m off Bridge Road, the shopping outlet precint, and trams. Walking distance to Epworth Hospital.

Room Tip: Rooms not near the lift.

Love staying here as very convenient. Having kitchenette and laundry in the rooms is wonderful with a supermarket a short stroll away. Stay away from room 224 as the signage from the business next door is lit all night and could be annoying.

Hi,

Great to hear that you like our location and in-room kitchen and laundry! Thanks for your feedback regarding room 224 and we haven taken on board your comments. With our upcoming refurbishment, we will be changing the blinds in that room so that the light from the signage can be blocked out.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcome you back again!

Thank you.

Stayed here for one night. Rooms are basic but quite clean. Check in service not that friendly and car parking can be a real problem if you are not early. This hotel has no restaurants and be prepared for a good walk to find something decent. There are better accommodations available in the city for a similar price

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback on our clean rooms. We are sorry to hear that your check-in experience has not been up to your expectation and the challenges you had to deal with for carpark and restaurants.

At Quest Richmond, we strive to provide you with exceptional services. If you can contact Renee or Sharine at Tel: 03 9267 1000, we will definitely love the opportunity to discuss with you on how we can further improve our front office services.

With carpark, we do have limited spots available on site so they do get booked out in advance. However, there are alternatives off the street carpark and within 200m, the Epworth hospital has a huge carpark that you may consider using.

Unfortunately, we do not have restaurants on-site. With our exclusive arrangements with several chargeback restaurants located within 250m from the property, there's option to dine at these restaurants and enjoy the convenience of having your meals chargeback to your room. Some of these chargeback restaurants also do food delivery to Quest Richmond. In addition, our spacious kitchen also comes with full crockery and utensiles to allow you to whip up a nice. simple meal if you like.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and we will love to hear from you again.

Kind Regards,
Renee / Sharine
