Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great location, excellent apartment, outstanding staff. Would highly recommend Quest to anyone needing a serviced apartment in Melbourne. Easy access to St Kilda, the city or Chapel St. The botanical gardens are across the road and it’s an easy walk to the MCG.

We stayed here because it was close to a function other members of the family were attending (and we were babysitting!). We discovered that it was much nicer staying here than in the CBD, and found the apartment to be roomy and comfortable, and the staff to be friendly and efficient. Additionally, the stay was excellent value for money. We feel lucky to have found it, and will certainly stay here in the future.

Can't fault the stay. Everything as described in listing and as expected. We do have a big car but parking spaces were pretty tight for any sized car. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks for making us welcome Melbourne :)

Would highly recommend this place. Clean very functional you could very easily live in these apartments full time fantastic. We had a large balcony on 9th floor gave us great place to relax and bathe. Close enough to south bank 20 minute slow walk and further 10 minutes to city centre. Don’t use the taxis instead you se Uber far cheaper and quicker. Loved our 3 week family holiday. Thankyou
