    Value: stayed in mantra St Kilda rd the night before and after and came here as they were full in between ( booked 1 hr before checkin as I had a flight cancelled last minute)... quest was about 70 more expensive for comparable quality Location : quiet and safe suburb , opposite yacht club / beach.., 5 min drive to shops , cinema , restaurants so great location if you have a car, probably not the best choice if you don’t ( St Kilda would be the better option here as more facilities in walking distance). Staff: great, polite , checkin was seamless despite 1 hour notice. Amenities: very good, gym facilities were across the road, didn’t have time to go but I imagined a tiny hotel style gym but it was a nice surprise to see that they had access to the proper gym across the road. Wish I had time to use this Cleanliness: all ok Overall, great for a last minute booking, location was peaceful and street parking overnight/ on the weekend is accessible ( 17 for their carpark)

    Staff training needed”

    As a consistent traveller and having stayed at the Quest accomodation in Sydney and Mackay before, we found the service we received from the concierge at the Quest was lacking the word service. Having travelled for over eight hours and arriving at the Quest in Brighton at 12 midday, we were rudely turned away and told not to return until 2pm. We went and parked the car in a shady spot, trying to have a sleep in the car until the allotted time. This is the first time we have ever been turned away upon arrival at any accomodation before. At the Marriott in Sydney they offer to take your luggage and let you use their guest lounge. There is a family function in October that we were requiring accomodation for 13 people and I know I won’t be booking with The Quest. This was a disappointing event, in what otherwise was a lovely weekend.

    Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay and I’m sorry we did not meet your expectations on your recent stay. We take guest feedback seriously. We always try to accommodate guest’s early check-in requests, on this occasion we were at 100% occupancy. We do offer luggage storage and suggest a leisurely stroll along the beach, which is located across the road or enjoy a coffee whilst we prioritise your request and call you as soon your apartment is ready. We receive a lot of positive commentary regarding the friendliness of our staff and assure you this would have been portrayed to you as a guest. Thank you for your review.

    Location great. Parking facilities appalling with no signage and no disabled parking. Cost of $17. The room was one of the smallest I have stayed in. Be prepared with some rooms with stairs. We weren't prepared for this, so were moved to a very small room. Very basic

We offer a larger more spacious apartment types which offers full kitchen facilities and separate living area, perhaps this room type would have been more suited to your stay. I’m sorry if the direction of car parking were not explained correctly upon checkin, however we do offer 2 level of car parking. Thank you for your feedback.

    Disappointing ”

    No one at reception when I arrived. Called the office phone number on my mobile and still no one picked up. Horrible start to the trip. Tried to charge me $17 for parking on checkout despite the fact I parked on the street. They agreed to a late check out when I checked in and then called me the next day saying there were no notes in the system. Advertised as free WiFi on the Agoda site then I find out only a paltry 200mb is given. Are you having a laugh - 200mb? Wanted to listen to the radio and find out there isn’t one in the room. Phoned reception and they said to stream the radio. But I only get 200mb remember and then what? I am billed? No pool. No discount to Brighton baths. This was the worst l stay in a long time for me

    TMs Opinion”

    My return visit after 7 years. The key cards didnt work well 7 years ago and this time the same. Very frustrating late on Public Holiday early reception closure - front door waited till someone else came along. And just trying to get into the room door. Apart from that the staff were excellent and my request for a specific type of room with balcony was allocated. The previous day my sister (who does not have the same surname as I ) tried to book that room and was told no. We ended up My sister in 01, myself in 02 and my niece in 03. All in a row with balconies. Attending a Memorial opposite at Royal Brighton Yacht Club was perfect place for me to stay.

    Thank you for your review on your recent stay. It is wonderful to hear that this was the perfect place to stay during your trip and that you were happy that we were able to allocated all of your party to the same floor close to each other and provide you with the room type that you requested, as sometimes this is a challenge due to occupancy. Your encouraging comment of staff service will be passed onto the team who appreciate such remarks. We have limited front office reception hours during public holidays, however the after hours contact number is located at the entry to the hotel with an onsite property manager to assist. Again thank you for providing your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you to Quest Brighton on the Bay during your next stay.
