Quest on Dorcas was a great choice for our recent Melbourne trip. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on floor 13, which overlooked The Shrine and Botanical Gardens. It was great to just walk over the road and into the gardens. It was also close enough to walk into the city, although you can jump on a tram. The apartment...

Great location with coffee spots and eateries downstairs and around the corner. Well appointed rooms and comfortable bed. Would have preferred a walk in shower but a lot of older apartments still have the shower over the bath. A bit hard to get in and our of if you have mobility problems but a rubber mat was provided for me...

Loved my apartment. It was very large and comfortable, very clean and very quiet with all mod cons. It is located walking distance to South Bank Which is great. Close to supermarkets and cafes. I have nothing bad to say! I loved staying here and would highly recommend.

Clean, well appointed updated rooms, central to everything & the most helpful staff I have ever come across on the reception desk. Great kitchen to keep the costs low with food shopping a short walk away. Amazing value considering you are a short walking distance to CBD, and the top tourist things and straight on the Tram Line.

Great place to stay with family. My niece was competing at the Australian National syronised swimming champs. Easy aces to the pool, town, markets. Good coffee and wine shop next door. Good clean modern rooms.

Stayed in a one bed unit for six days, quiet comfortable room. Just over 30mins walk from the CBD, plenty of nice place to eat nearby with a nice wee cafe opposite where you can sit down later at night and also enjoy a good selection of beer and wine. Had a well appointed gym on level 7 as an...

The place is clean, simple and neat. On arrival, I was told that there is no service over Easter weekend. While I understand the situation, I cannot help but compare that to a hotel property where service will be given regardless of holiday. However, I have nothing negative to say about the property at all, the staff or the place....

I stayed the Quest on Dorcas for 3 months for a business trip. Overall it was a great stay. The location is great,close to the CBD and tram line, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were generally quiet, there is a building site next door, but that noise was mostly during working hours.
