The AUD$2 million refurbishment of Quest Docklands Serviced Apartments has been completed including the launch of 133 newly restyled apartments, the renewal and restyling of the property’s reception, lobby and common areas, a new business centre with upgraded meeting facilities and a property wide upgrade to faster Wi-Fi internet connections.
According to Quest, the refurbishment was undertaken to “better cater for corporate travellers by improving the business services available at the property and maximising the spaciousness and functionality of the apartment layouts and self-contained facilities”.
“We are thrilled to announce the completion of the property’s 18 month refurbishment,” said Quest Docklands General Manager, Brendan du Kamp.
“The newly restyled apartments with enhanced business facilities will further strengthen our position as a premium accommodation provider in the precinct at a time when demand is increasing.
“The majority of our guests are travelling for business and our offering needs to provide a balance between offering a comfortable ‘home away from home’ as well as providing the facilities they require to work productively and efficiently,” he said.
Quest Docklands donated all of the replaced furniture, bedding and electrical equipment including TVs and audio visual equipment to the St Vincent de Paul Society.
The St Vincent de Paul Society will use the items to meet requests for welfare assistance and any surplus items will be sold through Vinnies Centres with the profits being used to fund local welfare work.
“We were delighted when Brendan came to us with this offer. A donation this size of goods that are great quality is something that doesn’t come along very often and something we can put to excellent use,” said St Vincent de Paul Society State President Tony Tome.
