There’s a new accommodation destination in Melbourne with locally owned and operated Quest Collingwood now welcoming guests to its 46 spacious serviced apartments.

Centrally located on Wellington Street, every stylishly appointed room at the 6-level aparthotel features balconies and incorporates bespoke local photography, art and modern finishings that capture the suburb’s industrial heritage and local appetite for forward thinking design.

Quest Collingwood also incorporates a 50 person-conference room, business suite, café, and gym, with accessible and pet friendly rooms also available.

Stephanie and Kane Robertson work closely with their team to connect guests with the best experiences Collingwood has to offer.

“Quest Collingwood brings local heritage to life through a ‘redbrick reborn’ accommodation offering. Every apartment combines exposed brickwork, local art and modern finishes with fully equipped kitchens,” said Kane. “We also weave scent, music and lighting together to ensure our guests feel right at home here in the heart of the design and dining hub of Collingwood.”

“Our goal in welcoming every guest is to turn them into a regular,” said Stephanie. “That’s why we work hard to get to know our guests and why they’re staying with us, so we can recommend authentic local experiences we know they’ll love.”

Quest Collingwood is located just 100 metres from Johnston St restaurants, and Stephanie and Kane have also handpicked three local eateries as room chargeback options for guests:

  • Lemon Middle and Orange is a unique bakery housed in an old paint factory, Irish brown soda bread is baked on site every morning and served with traditional black pudding.
  • Sook Thai transports diners to the street markets of Thailand and is perfect for groups.
  • Bar Rosella fuses traditional and modern Italian cuisine in an intimate setting. Specialty seafood and pasta dishes reflect the Puglian roots of the owners.

Throughout the reception, apartments, and conference area reused and recycled carpet tiles have been installed. A rooftop solar array is also contributing to Quest’s 2024 target of 100% network uptake of solar and/or green energy throughout the network.

Capturing and reflecting Collingwood’s rich cultural and industrial history in the property was key to the approach of interior designer and Director at ZUNICA DESIGN, Andrew Zunica.

“Our approach to Quest Collingwood represents an exciting evolution in the brand’s accommodation offering which is particularly evident in the new studio apartments and common areas. We’ve tapped into the vibrant local appetite for contemporary design through a rich materials and colour palette layered with modern lighting solutions, custom furniture and bespoke local photography.”

“Collingwood has over 150 years of heritage and red brick is the predominant built material. We integrated this finish by wrapping interior and exterior walls to encase a minimalist common area at entry level. Guests are greeted by a custom designed circular reception, extensive interior planting and a solid metal open stairwell that nods to Collingwood’s industrial past.”

“This unique blend of elements elevates the guest experience at Quest Collingwood.”
