What did we love about Quest Apartments Bayside?
Accommodation can sometimes make or break a weekend getaway. The right location and accommodation facilities can help make a weekend successful. Some people want accommodation with cooking and laundry facilities, and some just want to relax. Quest Apartments Bayside has the facilities for both of these and more!
1. The location of Quest St Kilda Bayside
First off, calling the location St Kilda Bayside is a little stretch. The apartment is not on the beach, nor does it have a view of the bay or any water. The best you get is a view from your balcony of the car park and swimming pool in the car park.
In saying that, the Quest St Kilda is still a top location for visitors looking to explore St Kilda or looking for hotels near Palais Theatre St Kilda. It is close to all the best parts of St Kilda, Acland Street, Fitzroy Street, and The Esplanade.
Pack a pair of comfortable shoes. Fitzroy Street and the Esplanade are only a few hundred metres away, while Acland St and Luna Park are around 500 metres away. I would say this makes St Kilda Quest Bayside one of the most convenient places to stay in St Kilda.
2. The rooms at Bayside St Kilda Quest
During our stay at Quest Hotels St Kilda stayed in the Twin Room Studio apartment, which is perfect for families. The room has kitchen facilities, including an oven and hotplate.
We found frying pans, pots, a grater, a colander, and more in the cupboards. Everything you would need to whip up your own meals at Quest Apartments in St Kilda The main bedroom had a large king-sized bed, while the open room in the studio apartment had two singles.
Some people love Quest apartments because of the full laundry in the apartments. Our Quest Apartments St Kilda had a washing machine, dryer, ironing board, and clothes drying rack. This is perfect if you plan on staying a little longer than a few days.
There was a couch and a small dining table that sat four people. The bayside accommodation easily accommodates four people without a stretch. Two people can even sit outside on the balcony. The flatscreen and TV ensure that the apartments are comfortable and entertaining for the whole family when not seeing St Kilda.
Other types of rooms at Quest Bayside:
- Studio Apartment for two people
