Quay West Suites Melbourne
Travel Blogs from Melbourne
You will never believe where I just was! I'll give you some hints. It was hot, dry, and FULL of wildlife! It's also known as "The Outback"! Thats right! Australia! And boy, was I wrong to bring any jeans or long sleeves. Of course, I had read in my folktales at school how dry and hot that it was, but I didn't know if they were really telling the …
The minute I stepped off the plane it was beautiful and somewhat chilly. The air smelt like fresh barbecues and children were running around everywhere. A kind gentleman walked up to me and said G'day Mate. I replied with a simple "G'day...?" I stayed at the hotel Quay West Suites where the service was amazing!
The first day I was there I …

After hanging around for some night shots of the city I headed back to the hostel for a well earned sleep!The next day I was booked onto a tour to see the penguin parade at Philip Island - every day at dusk the colony of fairy penguins crosses Summerland Beach on their return home for the night.

The evening was supposed to be a quiet one as I was flying to Sydney on Thursday morning, but a few of the guys suggested we go to the pier where a penguin colony lives. We only managed to spot one penguin, but we met a couple who suggested we go for a few drinks and I got to bed at 2am. ...

This gives you a pretty good indication that the home owners must get paid nice little sums for their houses appearing on TV seeing as only 3 have moved in that time and one guy actually purchased a second house on the street when it went up for sale! Not only do they get paid for their houses being shown on TV, they also have their own gardener and 24/7 security on the street, and the only have to put up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quay West Suites Melbourne
We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were large and well fitted, it was great to have a seperate lounge and kitchen. It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Quay West Suites Melbourne and we will be booking again next time we are in Melbourone.
We have just recently stayed at Quay West to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary
1) We were greeted to this wonderful night stay by excellent staff that were very friendly and made us feel welcomed.
2) Our suite was second to none with every amenity at our disposal and the balcony was lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy the view over the river.
3) The swimming pool/spa were great.
4) Proximity to the Southgate Shopping & Restaurants precinct was fabulous.
5) The bed was comfortable and gave us both a well-needed sleep.
6) Breakfast was delicious at Jarrah Restaurant.
We hope to return for our 26th Anniversary.
Loved the Quay West Suites
The Quay West Suites were excellent!! Wonderful location, indoor pool and a great suite with a balcony. Melbourne had lots of great sightseeing. Don't miss the Great Ocean Drive and Soverign Hill which is a mining town from the gold rush days.
We had a great time at this fantastic hotel. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We had an amazing large suite with modern kitchen and all the mod cons. The location is excellent on the South Bank - very central for the city - and loads of restaurants along the river. Would definitely recommed.
My husband checked in the day before I arrived checked in and was most impressed with the room. He easily found a convenience supermarket to purchase necessities for the next mornings breakfast. There are two within a 3 minute walk...five minutes gets you to Coles across the yarra which has a greater range of goods.
Poor Service, doesn't worth the money!
I stayed at QW suite for 2 nights and were totally disappointed because of...
1. Horrible housekeeping - eventhough they have madup your room, but the bathroom was not cleaned and with wasted papers left behind.
2. Staff at reception desk were not friendly and they just don't know what they were doing. Wrong calculations, impolitness are their norms.
Great for travelling through OZ
These apartment hotels are great if you are travelling through Australia and need somewhere which doesn't feel like a hotel and has laundry facilities in the room! The suite we had was spacious(by UK standards anyway), good decor and well cleaned. Room service was just OK, but you are better going either to the in-house restaurant or out...
The location of this hotel is perfect - very central and all you need to explore the city.
What is it with this Hotel? I have stayed here three times (all while on work assignment in Melbourne) and have yet to have a good experience. One time, the room had an air vent which went to the liftwell, and all I heard all night in the bedroom was the CLUNK, CLUNK of the lift moving up and down all night. It was painful. The next time, the room was overlooking the air vent coming up from the carpark and so the room was noisy as well. What is it with the air vents in this building? The next time, however, was a really shocker. I was there for five days, but working for three different client through that time, so the bill had to be charged to three different client accounts. That was WAY too much for the hotel reception staff to get their heads around, and it took numerous explaintations to get this settled and a total TWO HOURS for me to check out and settle the bill! After the two hours, I swore NEVER, EVER again would I stay at Quay West, a noisy hotel which does not make a stay an easy experience. Since then, have stayed at both Hyatt Grand, and Sofitel for work, both of which, for the same price as Quay West, offered a much better, more relaxing stay in the great city of Melbourne.
My wife and I went here in April, we were very lucky and managed to get a large room with a balcony overlooking the Promenade/ Yarra River and bridge. Perfect to watch the world go by. We could even watch the parade go by on the bridge on Anzac Day. The staff were lovely and polite and gave us a free upgrade.
Great Location! The suites are nice inside. The people working were very professional and nice. It's right on the river with restaurants and arts center nearby. The Botanic Gardens are in walking distance. It was a good choice.
