Great stopover
One night stay. So was a comfortable sleep over. Used the washing machine and a nice walk to restaurants in vicinity. It’s a quest so don’t expect the usual hotel service but a great place to stay. No parking, street parking only. Can be difficult.

Lovely accommodation
Our whole stay was excellent. Chris on reception was professional, polite and very helpful as were all the house staff. Our main requirement was to relax and be close to the railway station ready for an early morning departure and the Quest exceeded all expectations. Thank you so much to everyone.

Dark Living Room
The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of Parliament and historic buildings in Thorndon. Unfortunately our room was not as shown in the pictures as the living room was a dark cave with no natural light before the bedroom. Check that you are getting the one bedroom apartment layout in the picture

Excellent stay
Excellent, really beautiful apartment and very close to what we needed. The gentleman at the front stayed late to allow us to check in and they even emailed us about late checkin protocols. Excellent value, would stay again.

Great place
Amazing apartment, had everything including a washer and dryer. Brilliant to be able to do laundry in the room. Great location, handy for the ferry which is the main reason I booked it. Easy walking distance to attractions etc. So clean and the bed was super comfy.
