The upkeep of this apartment was not impressive. The Kitchen benchtop was damaged and on first impression you thought you may have just walked into the slums. Otherwise the kitchen was well self-contained for your own cooking. If the owners can not repair the similar laminated benchtop it's incorrectly priced for value. The apartment had overall accessibility to the street and walk out to the pool was very handy for a quick dip, and relaxation. Apartment did not have air-conditioning in the bedrooms however a reverse cycle air con was available in the lounge/living area. Laundry and bathrooms well maintained and clean.
It was within walking 50 -100 metres near the RPA hospital, Sydney University Colleges and a short stroll to King Street Newtown where many cafe's and restaurants can be found. good coffee outlets and Deuss cafe nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms (2 br apartments) near the pool are very accessible to the outdoor area.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback for our property to work and continue to improve.

It’s great that you mentioned how conveniently located we are in relation to the Royal Price Albert Hospital, universities and King Street. (Also within a ten minute drive to the Sydney CBD) We are very lucky to be surrounded by such an array of coffee shops, nightclubs and the hustle and bustle that Sydney has to offer. I hope that you were able to find the time to enjoy some of this during your stay.

You have also highlighted a few other areas that we will pass on to be actioned by our housekeeping team. We do appreciate you bringing this to our attention, as feedback is one of the best way in us to continue to strive for excellence. In addition, Quest Camperdown is also undergoing its next round of refurbishment to the Missenden Road site and we will be excited to have you back once refurbishment is complete.

Meanwhile, please feel free to contact myself or Robert Alam, our new property manager at 02 9028 7900 when you next stay stay with us at Quest Camperdown as we will ensure that you will be well taken care of.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,

It was not clear from the booking site that we would be staying across Paramatta road and not opposite the hospital. Our room on the second floor at the back was tiny; it smelled of smoke; there was a 'click/clack' sofa but you really had to sit on the bed to see the TV; the kitchenette comprised a sink, microwave, toaster, jug and small fridge; the bathroom was adequate. We had expected the usual one bedroom apartment we had enjoyed previously in other Quest apartments around Australia. Parking was back at the other property and was extremely limited. Our room lost power for about 90 minutes as did the rest of our floor. No explanation was given nor any apology. Staff were friendly but this experience left us disappointed and possibly a little less tolerant than usual - hence this review. The bed was clean and comfortable and the banging of pipes or doors only an intermittent annoyance. Lighting was dreadful and this appears to be a trend with economical low voltage globes - only a problem when natural light is limited I guess!

Room Tip: maybe inspect the room first

Have recently had two stays at this property. The rooms are a good size, are generally clean and are in a good location near Sydney Uni and RPA Hospital.
Our main concerns were the cost squeezing measures they have put in place. These include very poor lighting so that it is not possible to read at night (they have 13watt flouro bulbs behind diffusers in all lights), the use of queen size bed sheets on king size beds and quite dated bathrooms.

I don't understand why all the bad reviews. I stayed in the Paramatta Road property and initially there was some confusion because my booking said Missendon Road, but otherwise the place was great. The room was nice and big, bed comfortable, free WiFi (included in corporate deal) nice and clean. Especially the Q-Lounge facility was fantastic, with computer printer and fax machine, I could check-in and PRINT my boarding pass before flying on to the next stop. Super close to hospital and uni. Bus stop right out front to city. Lots of little pubs and stuff in the area to have dinner. Friendly staff. Will stay again, thanks. Usually have good experiences staying in the 4-5 QUEST hotels I've been in Australia.

The paint was peeling with mold growing in the baseboards. Dark lighting. King suite is really a double bed. I prepaid for internet and they wanted to charge me again. I immediately checked out and looked for another place to stay. Don't waste your money.

We stayed at the Quest Apartments Camperdown on the Australia Day long weekend, checked in Sat and out Monday. The apartment was a good size and well equiped, however we had to wash all of the plates and cutlery we used as all were dirty as was the kitchen floor. For the one full day we had in Sydney, we had no hot water, we wasted most of the day waiting for it to be fixed and eventually had to have freezing cold showers at about 1.30pm so we could go out and keep some of the arrangements to see people we had made! NOT a nice experience at all. No one kept us informed and there was no mention, let alone apology when we checked out. I have worked in a hotel and I was shocked that there was not even a "we are so sorry for messing up your day yesterday etc".

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Quest Camperdown. I'm sorry that you found some areas lacking during your stay.

Your comments have also been passed onto the housekeeping department regarding the cleanliness you mentioned as this is certainly not the standard we aim for in our rooms.

I understand how frustrating it must have been as a guest when we had problems with our hot water system. Unfortunately the issue did take some hours to fix. Staff did their best to keep guests informed, when they had information to give. I'm sorry if you felt that the issue was not acknowledged on checkout and I hope that you accept my apology for this now.

Thank you again for your feedback and I hope that you choose to stay with Quest Camperdown again so that we can show you the true standard of our property.
