“Great value - Clean and top location!”
Reviewed 9 October 2009

I stayed in these apartments for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the value for money. The studio room was extremely clean and modern and had a kitchen, large bathroom with washer/dryer cupboard, flatscreen TV with SKY and internet cable access (charged). The kitchen even had a small dishwasher.
The apartments are very central to Hamilton, with heaps of shopping and cafes right on your doorstep.
Reception is closes in the evening and unfortunately the guests below me were very loud during the night. The staff were very apologetic when I informed them the next day and apparently there is a phone number you can ring and they will deal immediately with noisy neighbours.
My room also looked out onto a multi-level car park so you may want to ask for a room with a view of the street if one is available. Parking is in the alley behind the hotel and you need to pre-book this at a cost of $10 or your wheels may get clamped.
Overall, the rooms were great value, clean and modern.

Reviewed 19 February 2009

We stayed one night in 1 bedroom suite. Nice and large, clean, well equipped. Loved the washer/dryer.

Starbucks is just 5 steps round the corner, big mall right across the road, bars and restaurants & casino 1 minute walk. A great place to stay if you want to be in the middle of things.

Despite being inner city, night noise was not a problem....BUT....the curtains failed to black out inner city lighting...which made for a not so great sleep. Otherwise I'd reccomend.

Reviewed 13 April 2008

we stayed one night in a 1 bedroom unit, hotel is right in the heart of the CBD with a mall, cinema, shops and 3 coffee chains (Esquires, Starbucks and Robert Harris) all within 50 metres, hotel only opened Dec 07, rooms are well appointed, clean and spacious, with flat screen tvs (small/mid size in lounge and small in bedroom). Full size kichen also.

Ward Street is a thoroughfare between 2 main streets but there was not a lot of night time noise.

Unfortunately reception did not appear to have any brochures on the area other than on other hotels within the Quest chain, would have been good to be able to pick up brochures or maps at reception.

The only downside to the hotel is parking, the hotel has secure car parking for an additional $10 per night which you need to arrange in advance, this is recommended as I dont think I would like to leave my car parked on the streets overnight.

Be careful where you park when checking in, there is an area behind the hotel with allocated parking for the hotel and other businesses however in the time we took to check in (literally 5 minutes) our car was clamped, which can incur a $60 fee, the boy in charge of the clamping loiters around the area but does not advise you not to park there and is very zealous and a little power crazy, although we managed to avoid the charge as we were staying at the hotel.

Overall aside from parking issues would definitely recommend staying at quest.
