Quest Apartment Hotels announced the opening of the new Quest Palmerston North in New Zealand. The property is a joint venture between local iwi, Rangitāne o Manawatū and Wallace Development.
The brand-new, 40-apartment hotel, which replaces the former Quest Apartment Hotel in Palmerston North, is conveniently located in the Palmerston North CBD, just a short walk from Palmerston City Library, Jetts gym, and the Manawatu River Walkway, Victoria Esplanade and Lido Aquatic Centre.
Adrian Turner, Group General Manager of Quest New Zealand, says the achievement marks an exciting milestone for Quest New Zealand, with a total of 35 properties now servicing the short and extended stay business traveller in the country.
The new hotel will include studios, one and two-bedroom apartments, with the consistent and well- considered Quest Apartment Hotels amenity creating the home away from home experience which underpins the brand.
Each studio features a fully equipped kitchenette while the one and two-bedroom apartments are perfect for families, colleagues or larger groups, with full kitchens, laundry facilities and internet access on- demand. Guests will also enjoy access to local restaurant chargeback and the Quest Pantry Shopping service, which delivers groceries right to the guest's door.
The opening comes ahead of a busy year for Quest Apartment Hotels globally. In Australia Quest is set to open Quest Perth Ascot (WA), Quest Preston (VIC), Quest Ballarat Station (VIC) and Quest Wangaratta (VIC) in the coming months. Quest Apartment Hotels also opened its first Gold Coast property in April 2020, Quest Robina.
Quest Palmerston North will be owned and operated by Delia and Ben Goodall. Both started their journeys with Quest as front office staff and are currently managers at the existing Quest Palmerston North, holding the pair in great stead for a successful first foray as franchisees.
