Quest Canberra

4.0 out of 5.0

Really enjoyed our stay - very close walk to restaurants in Civic and the apartment/rooms had everything we needed, very clean and friendly staff. We would definitely go back. Easy on-site parking too.

I had the best 2 week stay at Quest Canberra. All staff members were extremely friendly and very helpful. The noise level was none-existent for a place in the City and around so many restaurants. I would most certainly recommend it to any Business travelling person looking for a self catering hotel, it's very ideal.

The Quest apartment hotel is well located in Civic. If you have work in the parliamentary triangle it may be better on the other side of the lake. It is cold in Canberra in winter and the unseated hallways and public spaces of the property are uninviting. My room was small, compact if you like, relatively recently renovated but bland. My major complaint which isn't the hotel's fault is being woken by a garbage truck and the crash of garbage tipping into the crusher sometime during the wee hours. The fact that the front desk isn't staffed until 7 am is a real nuisance, particularly if you have early appointments. The place seems to run on a minimal service model.

Staying at Quest Canberra was an absolute pleasure. No complaints to be had at all. We found the friendliness of staff and the overall cleanliness of the entire apartment and complex outstanding. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again next time we're in town.

Lovely heritage building, tastefully converted. Spacious, well appointed rooms and good service. Located in the heart of Canberra, close to ANU and bars, restaurants and shops. Definitely recommended.

Good, convenient hotel and very central to Canberra city. Clean hotel with all amenities. Downfalls: no in-house restaurant however there are cafe and eateries close by; very noisy really early in the morning - the night I stayed it was like the garbage truck had come to empty bins at about 4 in the morning which wake me up. Has car parking.

Chosen for its location in the beautiful old Melbourne building; room comfortable enough and reasonably well equipped, but dreadful noise through wall every time lift machinery operated, terrible water pressure and temperature control in shower, possibly easily fixed... but needs some thought and building modification.

This property is central, yet quiet with dining options close by. The apartment was clean, staff friendly and helpful. Kitchen was simple, yet adequate for our stay. Rear lane parking was handy too. Would definietly recommend

Absolute pleasure staying at Quest. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful - making the Check-in/out process a breeze. Rooms were clean and had everything stated in information prior to booking. Great location too!

The Quest's studio apartments are more than adequate for a comfortable stay for a few days in Canberra. Apartments facing over West Row have a lovely large covered balcony. Location is excellent for dining in the city area.
