Quest Newmarket Serviced Apartments

Reviewed 28 April 2012

We have stayed in Quest apartments (Dorcas St & Hawthorn in Melbourne) previously and found this one on the small side - we were in the disabled suite where there is a lack of storage especially in the main bathroom. Ultimately we were in need of something bigger as we were a family of 4 relocating back to Akld and between us had 4 large suitcases that we simply couldn't unpack. On the positive side its in a great spot, had Sky tv and Wi-Fi, friendly and helpful staff and was nice and clean. I did have to resort to the complimentary earplugs a couple of times - the trains running alongside seemed especially loud at 3am!!

Nicky E, thanks for your feedback. I wish you had told me of the probelme while you were here. You would have been very comfortable in our 3 bedroom apartment I'm sure.

Dear Greg,
I guess the comparison of noise levels between Tonga and central Auckland must be quite extreme! Sorry this troubled you.
Just a reminder - the best prices are always on our web site. You can go to the web site direct from this page.
Pleased you enjoyed the bath!

Stayed here one night with a friend for a shopping trip. Nice tidy accommodation, I was a little underwhelmed as had read fantastic reviews, and while it was perfectly nice it wasn't spectacular. We had a 1 bdrm apartment twin share, so a single bed each. They seemed to be true singles too, not King singles! The location is hard to beat though as right across from good restaurants and a 2 minute walk to the main shopping areas. Apartment wasn't ready when we arrived (although to be fair we were a little early), came back an hour and a half later and the room was still 20 mins away from being ready, so a little annoying. I had read that the apartments closest to the trains could be very noisy, so ensure you ask for a room on the other side. We did so and had no noise issues at all. Overall a good place to stay if you want to be in Newmarket, but better deals to be had in the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side furthest away from the trains.

Coleenapieri 1. We have been really busy lately and so not always had apartments ready for the 2pm check in we advertise. Sorry this affected you.
If its "deals" you want then there are better than we offer. But if you want location, convenience and cleanliness then its hard to go past us.

This has to be one of the noisiest hotels I've stayed in. The other reviews said how quite it was but the trian and sourounding noise is unbelivable.

The hotel is ok but over priced for what you pay. Service was not great but to be fair was tired and grumpy.

Don't stay here if you want to sleep,,

Room Tip: Very noisey and far to exspensive

Ed S. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you arrived feeling grumpy. I guess one's ability to sleep in a new environment has a lot to do with how light we sleep and how quiet it is at home.

The hush glass when the windows are tightly shut is very effective. The fact that our windows open can lead guests to ignore the recommendation to close them tight when one goes to bed and rely on the air con.

Whilst the Quest in Newmarket is well looked after and the rooms are very comfortable and spacious, with a full bath in the bathroom, all of this is totally destroyed by the horrendous noise levels around the hotel.

One side of the hotel is around 10 metres away from the railway line to West Auckland, Trains rattle by here from 5am to midnight. At peak times there are two every 10-15 minutes. Unfortunately Auckland still uses extremely loud diesel engines on commuter trains

The other side of the hotel is no better, opening onto central Newmarket, with various bars and pubs that play music until 2.00am. Local traffic also starts around 5.30am, and unfortunately during my stay, nearby roadworks started at 6.00am.

I was a bit puzzled on arrival to find ear plugs in the bathroom, but soon discovered why they were there.

Unbelievably you can pay $210 a night plus for all of this. Even sleeping with the air con on all night to try and get some fresh air didn't make the experience beareable.

Although this was a business trip, I have to say that I would never stay here ever again. It is by far the worst hotel experience I have had to date.

Room Tip: Find another hotel, away from the noise...........

aginnz. I am sorry you found the city noise so loud you couldn't sleep. Newmarket is close to the CBD and well served by restaurants and cafes, as well as public transport.
When the windows are tight shut, as we recommend on the notices posted, the hush glass works miracles!
Fortunately a lot of your fellow travellers listed here found the secret.
