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.

We were greeted on arrival by a friendly receptionist, we then went up to the room, which was clean and nicely set out, kitchen had basics which we used. The hotel is easy to get to either by car or train and it's located within easy reach of the town. Its also very quiet even on a Friday night. This was our first visit to the hotel and we will use it again.

We have stayed in a lot of Quests before but being quite new this one was beautiful. It is in a very good location to the new renovated Goods Shed for dining. Our room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. The only problem is the train at all hours. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room facing the street. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. Also, the customer service was very good on reception.

I stayed overnight with my son. Had some trouble with an outside service but was given wonderful customer service afterward when speaking to receptionist. Then the following morning my son had left behind a sentimental toy of his and when I went back after checking out a very kind lady accompanied me back up to the room where the cleaner had found his toy and we got it back. All staff members I ran into were kind, warm and overall friendly. It made us feel very welcome and comfortable.

Very clean, comfortable and modern rooms. Well equipped gym with cardio machines and a multi weight machine, full range of dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells. Secure undercover parking. TV infotainment system could use a little work, as I couldn't get the casting to operate.

Ideal location and terrific room. We paid the extra $15pn for secure parking but plenty of free parking available nearby. Really liked the layout of the room and this would make it ideal for two couples to share if the price is putting you off. Main room has own ensuite, living area in the middle and other room the other side so easy to have your own privacy. Beds made on the following morning which was a nice surprise. Poor cleaners having to try and clean the tables though as they were a white mesh type design, these did look a bit grubby in spots but could understand why. Kitchen well appointed, bathrooms good and include a laundry. We had a nice balcony overlooking the Goods Shed and train station. Thanks for a terrific couple of nights.

Super friendly staff, spotlessly clean room with loads of space, and very comfortable beds. The pool is *so* great for families, with jacuzzi and sauna for the grownups. Throw in indoor tennis, games room and gym and you have the complete package. Brilliant!
