Stayed here for business in a One Bedroom, was very clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed. Staff were very friendly, professional and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Have stayed at other places in town but this is the best by far and one of the better Quest around too.....was very impressed and will be back.

Our last stop before heading home, we chose the studio room on the ground floor and it had all the things you need and was clean and very comfortable.
The lady at the front desk was very helpful and answered a few questions with expertise.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with my fiance and 5 week old daughter. We had a room on the second which apparently was one of the biggest rooms there. When I got in the room it was huge. Nice big kitchen/lounge area, comfy seats and couches with heaps of space. Tv and dvd player worked well. The bedrooms king bed was clean and very comfy with nice dim lamps. The bathroom was clean and big. Would have liked if the bath was a bit bigger and deeper.

ONLY downside is that there are NO lifts. You have to walk up flights of stairs...I didnt like this because we had heaps of my daughtera things to carry up and then having to walk up while holding her I didnt really like. However I would come back again.

We stayed here because we couldn't get home due to fires. Michelle, the manager in duty was fantastic and went out of her way to make sure that we had everything we needed, including dinner waiting when we arrived!

This property follows the Quest formula, so you know what you are getting. A clean modern room, comfortable king sized bed, good sized bathroom and kitchenette. The location is great - just a few steps from the main street, with plenty of places to eat within a short walk. There is free parking, although on a busy night you may struggle to get a spot, although there seemed to be plenty of well lit street parking. If you have trouble with stairs ask for a room on the ground floor, as the property has no lift. If there was a lift and free internet it would rate 5 stars from us.

Room Tip: As there is no lift, rooms away from the stairs are quieter.

We recently stayed 4 nights in a studio room on the 2nd floor. The room was so quiet - usually you here some noise from other guests, but we heard nothing during our 4 night stay which included new year's eve. The bed was extremely comfortable and the rooms were spotlessly clean. It was easy to walk into Sturt street for dinner etc. Be aware that there is no lift. I had booked a room for my elderly parents without realising, but it was no trouble for the staff to change the room to one on the ground floor on check in.

Stayed for one night business trip. Good central location, free parking. No lift is an issue so ask for lower floor.
Pub bistro on the corner was excellent for dinner and breakfast.
Quest have very good rooms and standards.

Room Tip: Ask for lower level room.
