Opening of Quest Geelong Central by Ascott Limited

The Ascott Limited, Australia (Ascott Australia) is pleased to announce the opening of Quest Geelong Central, its newest apartment hotel located in the center of the gateway city.

Richard Marles, Australia’s deputy prime minister, performed the official ribbon-cutting.

To take advantage of significant local investments in tourism, healthcare, and events, such as the $500 million Geelong women’s and children’s hospital that will be constructed on Barwon Health’s CBD site and the $294 million Nyaal Banyul Geelong Convention and Event Centre precinct on the waterfront, Ascott Australia has invested in a second property in Geelong.

Ascott Australia’s dedication to supporting the continuing growth of the regional tourism industry, which is anticipated to reach $1.2 billion in value by 2025, is shown by Quest Geelong Central. The Greenfield Hotel has 87 roomy, independent apartments with fully functional kitchens.

Modern studios, 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments with balconies and views of Corio Bay are provided, along with accessible and pet-friendly accommodations, to offer each visitor a truly home away from home experience.

Guests will enjoy cozy serviced apartments with access to amenities including a rooftop gym, business lounge, 40-person conference room, BBQ areas, and secure on-site parking as part of Pellicano’s $70 million mixed-use Pivot House development.

James Shields, GM of Growth and Capital Strategy at Ascott Australia, claims that Quest Geelong Central is in a great location to draw both leisure and business travelers.

In order to maximize revenues for Quest business owners and provide visitors with a seamless experience, Ascott continues to prioritize investments in strategically positioned sites and forging cooperative connections with reliable development partners like Pellicano, according to James. Given the developing Geelong Convention and Exhibition Centre neighborhood and the rising local healthcare industry, Geelong has both appealing short-term and long-term demand drivers in place for a second Quest facility.

The ninth collaborative development endeavor with Pellicano is Quest Geelong Central. Nando Pellicano, managing director of Pellicano, expressed his pride in the long-standing partnership with Quest.

This newest property in Geelong, which is the fifth apartment hotel building we’ve kept in our portfolio, “reflects the ongoing success of our partnership with Quest. We’re happy to give Geelong this much-needed asset and we wish the Quest team the best of luck, said Nando.

The launch of Quest Geelong Central in the area, according to Brendan Sanders, Acting Executive Director, Tourism Greater Geelong and The Bellarine, is yet another exciting development in the diversity of room stock in Geelong and The Bellarine and expansion of the local tourism industry more generally.

Our region’s objective of being a regional hub for domestic and international tourism is strengthened by the addition of this internationally branded hotel to Geelong’s inventory of lodging. More guests will explore more of the region’s extraordinary experiences by staying longer thanks to the installation of the 87 self-contained flats.

Greg O’Shea and Linda Murray, seasoned professionals in the hospitality sector, are the proprietors of Quest Geelong Central. Mark and Ky O’Shea and Daniel and Jennifer Wilson are also current Quest franchisees.

Greg remarked, “Geelong was always my weekend getaway growing up in Camperdown. I adore the locals, the culture, and the sense of belonging. After 35 years in the hospitality industry, I’m honored to open Quest Geelong Central, especially as Quest marks 35 years of franchising.

“I’m a proud Rotarian, and Quest appealed to my sense of civic duty. I want my visitors to think they are staying in a tiny town. Local companies are incredibly helpful, and we’re collaborating to improve the guest experience so they may live locally in Geelong to the extent they prefer. At the moment, there is a lot of investment and a wonderful vibe across the city.

We’re in a strong position as Geelong continues to grow because of The Ascott Limited’s global renown and the respect and confidence business and leisure travelers have in the Quest brand. Due to approaching big events and concerts, booking inquiries are substantially greater than we anticipated for the summer.

“I am aware that providing consistently high-caliber customer service is the key to fulfilling our mission of making visitor stays effortless. I can’t wait for our visitors to get to know our brilliant and devoted crew, who will help them discover the finest of Geelong.
