Ascott’s Quest Apartment Hotels has opened a new property in New Zealand.

The Quest Palmerston North is a 40-apartment hotel located in the Palmerston North CBD.

The hotel company says the new property is a short walk from Palmerston City Library, Jetts gym, and the Manawatu River Walkway, Victoria Esplanade and Lido Aquatic Centre.

The new hotel will include studios, one and two-bedroom apartments. According to Quest, 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 apartment.

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.

“Quest first entered the New Zealand market in 1998 and has steadily grown to be one of the largest and most well-recognised serviced apartment operators in the nation”, said Turner.

“Quest New Zealand single-handedly hosted 560,000 guests for 750,000 room nights last year, so we are confident that there is room for continued expansion, and Quest Palmerston North responds to that with a more premium accommodation offering, more rooms and better amenity, all delivered with the same service excellence people have come to revere of Quest”.

Quest is an apartment hotel operator in Australasia with more than 170 properties located across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Quest Apartment Hotels is part of Singapore-based company The Ascott Limited (Ascott).
