Quest Geelong has completed a major upgrade to its 35 apartments.

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.

A new paint scheme has been rolled out across the property.

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.

New carpets, bathrooms and kitchens have also been installed.

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.
