Thursday 23 April: Quest Apartment Hotels is proceeding with the opening of its first property on the Gold Coast, confident the region’s economic boom will continue post lockdown.
The $32-million Quest Robina, due to open on Monday 4th May 2020, will fill an increasing need for business and leisure activity in the area and features 80 serviced apartments, a gym, lap pool and conference facilities.
Quest Robina is located near the train station, within walking distance of CBUS Stadium precinct and next door to Robina Hospital.
Experienced franchisees Josh and Fleur Nadzielski, former owners of Quest Griffith in New South Wales, will open and run the property, and the pair have already recognised a way to help the community.
According to Fleur Nadzielski, “Using the new Quest Healthcare Assist booking platform, during the Covid-19 emergency we plan to ensure some of our rooms are available to front line health professionals, giving them a chance to rest and recover from the long hours they are putting in.”
Quest COO David Mansfield is confident Quest Robina will be a great success with the Gold Coast’s population expected to hit 1.5 million people by 2050.
“When domestic travel is reinstated, we will undeniably see a surge in both corporate bookings, and as the newest hotel on the Gold Coast located in a key business precinct of Robina, we anticipate Quest Robina will be the pick of places to stay”, said Quest Chief Operations Officer, David Mansfield.
“We have already secured long-term bookings of three months plus for business professionals later in the year, and are also taking bookings from leisure travellers locking in their winter getaways in the Sunshine State”, added Josh Nadzielski.
Quest Robina’s new owners say they will also be looking to help support the local job market, aiming to employ approximately 15 staff across management, front of house and housekeeping.
“We know that great employees offering excellent service are the lifeblood of our business. We want the best people working with us so that our guests always get the best experience possible”, says Josh Nadzielski.
Quest Robina’s interiors embrace the relaxed Gold Coast spirit, with a sunset colour palette of navy, dusty blue, peach and flecks of pink, while organic shaped timber stools, woven wicker lamps shades and linen look fabrics create an inviting connection to nature.
Diversified property group Pellicano completed the $32-million Quest Robina development, one of three new Quest offerings by Pellicano which are slated to open in 2020.
According to Pellicano managing director Nando Pellicano, “We seek to build quality amenities in locations that are likely to need them in coming years. Robina is an example of a thriving hub that’s going to grow more and more as residents identify this growth area as an attainable suburb of the Gold Coast.”
Robina, designed to support the Gold Coast’s expansion, is becoming a hive of business and economic activity with $600-million worth of major projects underway.
Quest Robina is located at: 3 Centreline Place, Robina QLD 4226.
