Quest Queenstown features 40 apartments.

Serviced apartment operator, Quest Apartment Hotels, has given itself an early Christmas present, unwrapping its third new property to open in the past 15 months with the debut of Quest Queenstown.

The company’s newest South Island location continues its strong run of growth in New Zealand despite the pandemic, with Quest Queenstown following recent new openings in Takapuna and Mt Eden. Queenstown is the third of seven new locations coming to the company’s New Zealand portfolio, with the remaining three located in Cambridge, Lambton, Hastings and Mt Maunganui and all opening in 2022.

Apartments feature unlimited WiFi, separate living and dining, kitchen and laundry facilities.

Quest Queenstown features 40 self-contained apartments configured across studio, one and two-bedrooms, each with a kitchen and laundry facilities and guest amenities including free WiFi, local restaurant chargeback, electric car charging and pantry shopping service.

Quest Apartment Hotels (NZ) Group General Manager, Adrian Turner, said New Zealand travellers had expressed their confidence in the Quest style of accommodation, especially its decision not to participate in the government’s managed quarantine and isolation (MIQ) program.

“Quest has worked incredibly hard managing the relationships with our landlords, supporting local partners, and focusing on the needs of the corporate travel market to keep our boutique apartment hotels running efficiently during what has been a very trying time,” Turner said.

The hotel offers great views over the scenic Queenstown mountains.

“Our decision not to convert any of our properties into MIQ facilities and making our customers aware of this decision led to a record number of bookings in FY21 and the start of FY22 with five record months in succession before this latest lockdown.

“This stance along with our model of providing spacious modern rooms with all the facilities you need and without any that you don’t, has helped to survive a very challenging couple of years,” Turner said.
