quest serviced apartmentThe Quest Serviced Apartments network continues to expand into the growing regional hubs and suburban growth corridors across Australia, with the company today opening its second Frankston property, Quest Frankston on the Bay.

The 82 apartment Quest Studios property occupies four floors within the new 10 story Peninsula on the Bay complex located in Frankston at 435 – 437 Nepean Highway. Quest Serviced Apartments Chairman, Paul Constantinou said the opening is in line with the company’s growth strategy, which seeks out locations that will support a successful accommodation business for the long term.

“Frankston’s foothold as an industrial hub is predicted to grow, with the Port of Hastings slated as a key future transport and shipping hub. In the interim, sustained investment is driving demand for quality accommodation such as ours from health facilities, business parks and the increased tourism offering along the peninsula,” Mr Constantinou said.
The property is the sixth under the Quest Studios brand, a sub-brand developed in response to research that extended-stay business travellers value absolute flexibility.

Also housed within the complex will be restaurants run by the likes of Paul Mathis (Taxi Dining Room, Blue Train, Soul Mama), Ella Bache, a gym, commercial space and residential apartments. Will Deague, CEO, Asian Pacific Group said, “We have owned the former Peninsula Centre since 2008 and have just undertaken a $28 million redevelopment.

“We are proud to be part of the rejuvenation of the Frankston area and delighted to partner with Australia’s leading serviced apartment accommodation operator in the process. This is the 5th development Asian Pacific Group has completed with Quest,” Mr Deague added.

The studios and one bedroom apartments offer guests a hotel-style room with the facilities and flexibility of an apartment, including a kitchenette, dedicated work area, complimentary WiFi and multi-device charging station.
Guests have access to conference facilities and Quest services such as pantry shopping, dry cleaning, restaurant charge-back, baby-sitting booking and business administration.

In 2013, Quest Serviced Apartments is also opening another five Australian properties in Adelaide’s CBD, Rockhampton (QLD), Wodonga (VIC), Mackay (QLD) and Albury (NSW). Three New Zealand properties will also open this year in Highbrook, Christchurch and Beaumont.
