We regularly stay at quest Southbank and other quest properties. The location is excellent facilities of a very good Standard, and it is easy to get around to all of the Melbourne sports of interest to us. The housekeeping is of a very high standard and our apartments are always fresh and clean thank you

Great location, a hidden gem! So close to the city but tucked away as well. Great views to the city, especially with the city lights at night. A very nice surprise with an upgrade and we will be back next year!

Small rooms, disappointed compared to other quests I've stayed at. Traffic noise was very loud, like a window was open. Difficult to park in the car parking area if you have a large vehicle. Service was great and staff were lovely.

We stayed at Quest recently because of its convenience to the NGV in order to see the David Hockney exhibition. Our two bedroom apartment was comfortable, but not luxurious. What I did not like was having to pay a bond in case we broke anything. I find this insulting and rarely encounter such a practice. Our bed was comfortable, but...

Great location, apartment ready when we arrived, which was early, friendly and efficient staff. Walking distance to city. Great to have two bathrooms. Traffic noise can take a bit to get used to but that is to be expected because I live in the country where there is no traffic noise.

Dear Fiona M, Thank you for sharing your experience. Great to hear that you enjoyed the location on our apartments and staff friendly. In regards to the noise, we are always happy to try to allocate a higher apartment so the noise isn't as loud. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Warm Regards,

Poor start with perfunctory reception but game lifted with subsequent staff interactions. room was well equipped but hard to keep cool and then keep warm as Melbourne weather chopped and changed. Alarm clock was replaced and the drier needed fixing but was fixed quickly. Don't like shower over bath with no none slip mat or surface. I bought my own...

Clean and tidy, spacious two bedroom apartment was perfect for our stay. Easy walk to the city and excellent places to eat. The apartment was much bigger than expected and was perfect for us. The kitchen and laundry was also very useful.
