It's very difficult to book a room for 5 adults in Wollongong and Quest was one of the 2-3 locations that could get 5 into one apartment.
Size wise the apartment was good - we had a 2 bedroom which had a kind bed and 2 singles. A decent roll out bed was also set up for us for our fifth.
The furniture seemed cheap, which is fine for a chain motel, except considering it's cheap - there shouldn't really be an excuse for it to seem so dated, tired and dirty.
Thus why it seems overpriced - 2 bedroom apartment for one night $330!!
Cleanliness was less than average. There was gunk in the dishwasher and the fridge smelt funny. The bathrooms were the worst which wasn't helped by the fact that they seemed a bit dated. I went to brush my teeth and had a huge cockroach crawl out from my under my towel. Yuck!! There were 2 other dead cockroaches near the couch in the living area.
Bedding would have been adequate for summer but not enough blankets were in the room for 5 people during a cold winter night - reception closed so no opportunity to get more. Bed and pillows were also hard and uncomfortable.
Bathroom fan was noisy and we could hear noise from the street all night.
I hate sounding like I'm whinging but the only decent thing I can think of for this hotel was it's central location. Otherwise - it seems like Quest are taking advantage of the lack of accomodation choices in Wollongong and charging premium prices for sub standard rooms.
The apartment was adequate for a group for the one night but I would be very unlikely to stay here again.
