Quest Newcastle Apartments
Ranked #6 of 24 Hotels in Newcastle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 January 2017

We stayed here for three nights, here is a summary:
Pros: good location, good sized apartments, excellent cafe/bar downstairs (Happy Wombat), indoor pool to keep the kids happy, easy access parking (although mostly open-air), friendly reception staff, comfy beds.
Cons:we stayed in summer and there is only an A/C unit in the main living area - bedrooms were quite hot - fans didn't quite cut it. Also, our hotel room was a bit "stale" smelling, I think previous travellers didn't obey the no smoking rule, even after three days with lots of windows opened it still was smelly, a bit of street noise, but it was holiday time so probably more rev-heads out that usual. Overall, after staying at many Quest's before, I would say this one was not my favourite, but was still adequate enough.

Room Tip: Choose a room high up to avoid street noise.

We stayed at Quest Newcastle for 5 nights in January '17 no complaints - very clean and spacious apartment., would suggest pre book parking due to busy streets and metered parking - Lovely place to stay very friendly and obliging staff and good location central to cafes and places to eat.

I stayed at Quest Newcastle for 1 night, great location, good facilities, fantastic restaurant/bar downstairs. Short walk to the waterside, where there are plenty of great restaurants and cafes to choose from.

When walking through the front door, we saw the whole unit and were completely satisfied, having two bathrooms, cupboards well stocked with ever thing to what we would have needed, the biggest surprised was the front verandah, very very big

Overall the Quest was a pleasing stay for our purpose - the staff can't be faulted. They couldn't do enough to help out and assist making our stay memorable. The location was great
If I need to fault anything it's that the balconies were very clean and air conditioning wasn't in the bedrooms - but everything else was great!

Great location, but a strong smell of cigarette in the kitchen, as a non smoker was off putting. Clean and tidy with plenty of room in the apartment. Close to many facilities. Short walk to foreshore and a longer walk but pleasant to Newcastle famous beaches.
