Quest’s latest property in the regional New South Wales town of Goulburn has opened its doors, adding 63 premium serviced apartments to the Southern Tablelands accommodation market.
Valued at approximately $20 million, Quest Goulburn is located on the Canberra-Sydney growth corridor, raising the network’s regional NSW portfolio to 14 properties, following last month’s opening of Quest Orange.
Quest Apartment Hotels General Manager – Franchise Operations, David Ridgeway said the new hotel continues the brand’s legacy as a leader in regional Australia’s premium accommodation market.
“Quest has been an early mover in regional centres since its first hotel launched in Melbourne more than thirty years ago.
“Goulburn is a major destination for industry and new renewable energy projects are attracting more residents and business travellers to the area.
“As towns like Goulburn grow, so too do our services. We’re pleased to introduce our premium range of serviced apartments to Goulburn, led by one of our most experienced hospitality professionals,” Mr Ridgeway said.
Quest Goulburn Franchisee, Jason Travers started his career 20 years ago at the Four Seasons Hotel and worked his way up to a franchise management role at Quest’s Corporate Office.
“It’s taught me how to both run a successful business and accommodate the needs of guests,” Mr Travers said.
Since arriving in Goulburn, Jason has received a warm welcome from local businesses who’ve tipped the accommodation sector as a winner in the town’s economic growth.
“Land values are going up, businesses are coming in and people want to come to this stunning part of regional NSW.”
“Our apartments are designed to provide a home-away-from-home experience for short and extended-stay travellers. We’re pleased to lead serviced apartments in the local accommodation market,” Mr Travers said.
Located on Clinton Street, Quest Goulburn is a two-hour drive south west of Sydney’s CBD and an hour north of Canberra. The property features a mix of self-contained studio, one and two bedroom apartments containing kitchen facilities, highspeed Wi-Fi, modern décor and the latest technology and appliances.

Upcoming properties include Ballarat Station (VIC), Wangaratta (WA), Robina (QLD), Preston (VIC), Perth Ascot (WA), Quest Tauranga Central (NZ), Takapuna (NZ), Hastings (NZ), Christchurch – Cambridge Terrace (NZ) and Mt Maunganui (NZ).
