Quest opens Whyalla property
The latest accomodation venue in the Quest Serviced Apartments portfolio has opened in Whyalla, South Australia.
The $11 million property is close to the airport, Westlands Shopping Centre and Civic Park, and is the second site for franchisees Jennifer McDonnell and Daniel Wilson.
McDonell said “We have seen the ongoing rise in demand from extended stay business travellers through our time as franchisees at Quest Whyalla Playford. More and more people are coming to Whyalla to work and base themselves here for extended periods.
"The support from the local community for our second venture, catering to this growth, has been exceptional," she said.
The 4.5 star property has 56 studio, one and two bedroom apartments.
Andrew Weisz, general manager – locations, Quest Serviced Apartments, highlighted the partnership with the South Australian Tourism Commission as key to getting the project off the ground.
“We worked closely with the South Australian Tourism Commission from the project’s inception – looking at the area, the current market and the future growth.
"There is a large, undersupplied market here, drawn by the long term development of the resource industry, and the subsequent significant infrastructure investment,” Weisz said.
