We stayed for 1 night last weekend & could not have been happier. Nicely located, secure parking, friendly staff, clean & spacious enough for 3 of us, in a 1 bedroom apartment. We had a room on the 2nd floor which overlooked the park & water. Was so peaceful at night. We would have no hesitation in staying here again or recommending it to others. Will book in for longer next time.

Room Tip: 2nd Floor overlooking the park & water was wonderful.

Kate and her helpful staff really try hard here with the Quest Williamstown apartments. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and although not luxury, the accommodation is clean, spacious and comfortable. Some of the equipment in the kitchen is getting to its sell by date, but functions. The lighting is low energy, which although may be good for the planet, makes the atmosphere a bit dingy at night. Complimentary underground parking is given (a bonus for Williamstown), but the internet is still charged for, which I find unnecessary in these more enlightened times.
The location is a big plus point, being right on the Gem Pier in Williamstown, close to many restaurants (some surprisingly good). The local tourist floatplane and cruise / ferry boat are just outside. The station for the regular service to Melbourne is a 5 minute walk, with Williamstown Beach 15 minutes away.
Williamstown has a holiday seaside town atmosphere (and is a great place to watch the Melbourne New Year fireworks from). It certainly makes a great alternative to Central Melbourne.

Room Tip: Floor 2 overlooking the park was good. Best to be a few doors down to avoid function room noise.

Stayed one night only - Williamstown is a lovely spot and the Quest is in a good located. The room was clean and of a good size, but the TV was the smallest I have seen in a hotel for a long time and the bed was the hardest that I have slept on. Our room was next to the keyed entry and all night we were woken by people coming home. I could not recommend this hotel for a good night’s sleep.

This was a last minute booking and the preceding trip advisor reviews made us a bit wary. Overall we were very happy with the Quest at Williamstown. As all the previous reviews stated the location is fantastic. The pier, boats and view to the city is spectacular but there is also a park at the front door with a great kids playground and its surrounded by plenty of great restaurants and cafes.

Its a very popular area and there is no free or unmetered street parking. We had a luggage "pod" on our station wagon roof rack that was to tall for the basement car park that has a very low head clearance. We had a 2 bedroom family room on the 1st (top) floor and it was very roomy except for the odd bathroom, laundry combination. The old style shower head is in the small bath and had a cheap wonky screen.

The staff were courteous and helpful but I wouldn't say friendly. There was a huge noisy wedding party in the adjoining function room and I thought it might have made it hard to get the kids to sleep, but it was very quiet in the room and we couldn't hear a thing. Like many hotels you have to waste an enormous amount of time trying to work out how the reverse cycle air conditioner and TV remotes work. I would stay here again and recommend these apartments for familys but I would not call them luxury or even 4 star. Cost $325 plus CC surcharge per night.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor have views but the first floor on the east side looks at a fence.

Beautiful location near the Gem Pier. Beautiful sights over the water to Perth City. Not the most luxurious, but comfortable, clean and basic facilities to prepare your own (healthy) food. Good value for money and a good start to the Great Ocean Road.
