I stayed at the Quest Richmond for 1 night during a recent trip to Melbourne, and I'm thankful that it was for only 1 night.
The property is in a great location just off Bridge Rd, so is close to trains and trams. You have all sorts of options for eating/drinking on Bridge Rd, with the CBD, Swan St and Victoria St also just short trips away.
What is disappointing is the state of the property. The only way I can describe the room I was in is dirty. Mould around the window frames and in some of the kitchen cupboards, balls of hair and dust in the corners of the bathroom, the back of the bathroom door looked like it had not been cleaned in a very long time, some of the cups had not been properly cleaned and the oven tray had to be washed before I could use it.
In addition there was not a full set of coat hangers, dishes left in the dishwasher and a compendium that told guests how to buy a metcard (a system that has not been in operation for over 6 months) and gave tips of things to do in 2009.
Overall a very disappointing stay, and in no way up to the normal Quest standards
