Quest opens in Penrith as the region transitions to third major city in Sydney

30 July 2018 – The doors have opened at Quest Penrith, 83 Lord Sheffield Circuit, increasing the brand’s offering in New South Wales by 115 rooms.

Quest Penrith is positioned to capitalise on Sydney’s transforming economic landscape, with Penrith transitioning from a regional centre to the state’s third major city. Greater Western Sydney is Australia’s third-largest economy and has been identified by the State Government as a key corridor for future economic development, urban renewal and infrastructure. 

Quest Apartment Hotels General Manager – Growth, James Shields said Penrith was a centre with strong potential and ambitions for growth.

“Opening Quest Penrith provides an opportunity for strong business growth, with the region’s target of creating 25,000 new dwellings and 40,000 new jobs by 2031. 

“Penrith is set to be a major beneficiary of the $59 billion Western Sydney Airport development, with the project expected to create long term employment opportunities for the wider region.” 

Quest Penrith franchisee Phil Willey said he was looking forward to welcoming the first guests after months of preparation.

“Quest Penrith is my third franchised business under the Quest Apartment Hotels banner. I can’t thank Quest corporate office enough for the tremendous support in the running of my businesses on a day to day basis,” said Mr Willey.

“In the past five years, overnight visitation to Western Sydney has grown by 59 per cent, so the Quest Penrith team and I have great confidence that the property will be a valuable addition to Quest’s NSW portfolio.”

The property features 115 apartments over seven levels, comprising studio, one and two-bedroom configurations, and includes on-site parking, a conference room and gym. The hotel is located adjacent to Penrith railway station within walking distance of Westfield Penrith.

The broad pipeline of 12 new property openings over the next 18 months across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, shows substantial growth for Quest. In addition to Penrith, this includes properties in St Kilda Road, Notting Hill, Burwood East and NewQuay (VIC); Canberra City Walk (ACT); South Perth foreshore (WA); Orange (NSW); Quest on Manchester, Quest Tauranga Central, Quest on Tuam and Quest Mount Eden (NZ) and Liverpool (UK).
