We booked Quest on Dorcas after reading positive reviews. Have stayed in many apartments in the CBD which were convenient but most were sadly lacking, cleanliness wise. Quest was perfect for us with a spacious two bedroom apartment at a reasonable cost, welcoming and informative staff, and in a fabulous location. Great cafes nearby and the tram stop a two minute walk.

From our first email, Renee was first to respond and provided the most accurate and concise answers. She remembered us and gave us a warm welcome upon arrival. Zoe responded within 2 minutes to an online enquiry after departure, found our left behind item, and had it waiting for us at reception the next morning. The 1 bed apartment was perfect for our month long stay and could not have been cleaner or better equipped. The onsite, secure parking was excellent. The location is convenient no matter the direction you need to go. Restaurants (cheap and better) are close by, convenience stores are close. Trams are close. If you want to be near the action but not bombarded by it, this is the place to stay - and the nightly rate was absolutely reasonable. We couldn’t fault our apartment in any way.

Thankyou for providing such a detailed review Miked005. I am gratified to read that communication with our property was easy and efficient. We greatly appreciate the positive feedback and will endeavour to let Zoe know. I am glad the 1 bedroom apartment was perfect for your stay. Our location is great for all needs but is situated on a quiet street, I am pleased you found it convenient too. We hope to welcome you back to Quest on Dorcas in the near future. Kind Regards Renee Crotty (General Manager)

Very helpful and friendly staff makes the stay enjoyable. Apartment was okay with 2 bedrooms and 2 toilets which is essential for large groups travelling . Location next to Botanic Gardens was good esp if you plan to visit it more than once to explore and the jog around the area. Building has a nice coffee joint that serves great coffee and pastries. A supermarket is right next to building and very convenient.

Hi Albyross Thankyou for booking with Quest on Dorcas. I am glad you found our two bedroom superior apartment comfortable and well suited. The view over The Shrine of Remembrance and Royal Botanical Gardens is beautiful.

Apartments good, 2 rooms booked for 2pm check in but 1 not available until 4pm, possibly due to staff shortages so don't want to be too harsh. Parking may also be an issue if you have a larger car, very small parking spots

Thank you Hlh215 for taking the time to review Quest on Dorcas. We have had a shortage (as many industries have experienced) and we do appreciate your understanding with this. We have introduced new team members over the past few weeks and hope to not have a repeat of this. Thank you once again and hopefully we will see you soon.
