Recent guest reviews

Excellent location to restaurants and clubs, coffee or whatever...... nice clean rooms. fairly comfortable bed. did not have a view but room was quiet. After hours Duty Manager was very helpful. Would stay again.

pleasantly surprised to find such a good value hotel with friendly staff in Carlton. Room was clean and spacious and the desk staff were very helpful, especially since I had actually booked and paid for a different night than the one I showed up on...

A great location. Entry to car park is not off Finlay st. Ring ahead for directions to the lane that leads to the undercover parking. Parking costs extra to room rates. Easy walk to plenty of restaurants. Also visited friends near the university. Cheerful and helpful staff.

Have access key cards that actually work please! The cards were replaced with new cards which also didn't work, these got replaced yet again, and only one worked half the time. Otherwise, the kitchen facilities in the room was adequate, with fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, stove, and a dishwasher!

Really surprised by how comfortable our stay was with the Quest Carlton. Everything we needed was supplied and great location. Staff were professional, friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

Good location and perfectly fine apartment. The apartment itself was clean enough, however the hallway and reception area are tired looking and could use a better clean. Our key cards didn't work, which seemed to be a common problem with guests. Overall, reasonably good value for what it is.

We are a family with three young kids and the two bed apartment was perfect size and price in a great location. The staff were very helpful,welcoming and friendly. We will be back on our next Melbourne trip.

Great location next to all restaurants in the heart of Carlton. The rooms were clean however beds and pillows were not comfortable. Staff were very helpful and assisted us when needed. Ample on street parking.

Stayed at this hotel from 12th Jan to 14 Jan 2018. The staff is friendly and efficient. The room was lovely, spacious and very clean. The strange thing was that there was no pen or paper in the room. Neither was there any complimentary drinking water. The shower took a bit of working - not enough pressure but it was okay.

Pros: Great location on Lygon Street in Carlton which is where all the amazing restaurants are! Friendly and helpful staff. Especially loved Rhondelyn's humor! Cons: There were ants in my room. Carpet looked dirty.
