In every location, our network delivers what can only be defined as a best-in-class experience for guests, and that’s why business and leisure travellers choose us time and time again.
“Quest NewQuay in Melbourne is no exception.

Quest NewQuay is a very worthy recipient of Oceania's Leading Serviced Apartments and we are incredibly proud of the property’s accomplishment”.
