Quest Apartment Hotels has unveiled a major AUD$1.5 million upgrade to Quest Geelong as construction continues on a second location in the Bellarine Peninsula city outside Melbourne.
Each of the 35 serviced apartments at Quest Geelong, which opened in 2005, have received around AUD$40,000 worth of work, with new kitchens and bathrooms installed, new carpeting and paint schemes to deliver a contemporary, modern look.
Work at the site began in January with blocks of five apartments completed at a time over seven stages to keep the property operational throughout.
Quest’s General Manager of Growth and Capital Strategy, James Shields, said Geelong was a key location for the brand.
“With Quest Geelong now refurbished, by 2023 we will have a total 122 high-quality serviced apartments to service our corporate and leisure guests in the CBD,” he said.
Quest Geelong Property Manager, Paris Sears, said she believes the new-look property will significantly improve the guest experience.
“At Quest we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional guest service, so it’s important that our guests arrive to a space which is bright, modern and most importantly functional, and the renovation has delivered that in spaces, with a beach-inspired design which nods to Geelong’s charm.”
Long-term Quest partner developer, Pellicano, recently shared details on an AUD$70 million project to open a second location for the brand, with construction now underway and due to open to guests in early 2023. The 87-key property will be known as Quest Geelong Central.
