In the face of today’s economic challenges, Quest Apartment Hotels defies the odds once again with the recent unveiling of their newest property, Quest Hastings. As an independently owned and operated accommodation group, Quest continues to expand its presence, making Quest Hastings their 41st property in New Zealand. This strategic growth plan includes the opening of three properties in 2023, with the Hastings location being the second.
Adrian Turner, the Chief Operating Officer for Quest Apartment Hotels (NZ), emphasizes the dedication and effort put into building strong relationships with landlords, supporting local partners, and catering to the corporate travel market. With the opening of Quest Hastings, the group aims to not only serve their existing corporate clients but also attract new clients who can now experience the unique offerings of Quest’s boutique apartment hotels.
Situated at 304 Eastbourne Street East in Hastings, Quest Hastings enjoys a prime location just behind the Hawkes Bay Arts & Events Centre, known as Toitoi. The property is conveniently positioned approximately three kilometers from the hospital and a mere 300 meters from the library. Whether visitors are in Hawkes Bay for business or leisure, Quest Hastings provides a central and accessible base.
Scott and Sonia Belingham will oversee the operations of the new establishment. Scott, who has previously worked in various Quest properties in Australia and New Zealand, is excited to embrace this challenge. Drawing from his experience as a property manager, he aspires to deliver exceptional service to guests while utilizing his business acumen to ensure the property’s success.
Quest’s expansion plans for 2023 also include the opening of their third property in November. The upcoming Quest on Cambridge Terrace will mark the group’s third presence in Christchurch, further solidifying their commitment to serving travelers in the region.
