Quest Apartment Hotels Unveils Ambitious UK Expansion Plans

Date: November 2017

Location: Liverpool, UK – Church Street, City Centre

Name: Quest Liverpool City Centre (opening 2019)

No. of keys: 100 apartments

Landlord: Vabeld UK

Tenant: Quest Apartment Hotels (HQ Australia)

Price: £10m redevelopment. Existing retail premises on the ground and first floors and vacant offices above. The landlord will convert the vacant office space on levels two, three and four and construct additional levels five and six, creating 100 serviced apartments, reception, conference room, gym and back-of-house facilities.

THPT Comment: Quest is the largest and fastest growing apartment hotel operator in Australasia with 160 properties located across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Quest was established by entrepreneur Paul Constantinou nearly 30 years ago in Melbourne. In July 2017, Quest Apartment hotels announced an extension of its partnership with one of the world’s leading serviced residence networks, following an increased investment of 60% in the Quest business by Singapore-based Ascott (CapitaLand), in itself the largest service apartment operators globally, with brands such as Citadines, Somerset, Ascott, Crest and owners of the Cavendish Hotel in London. This will be Quest’s first venture outside of Australasia…and we believe the first of many for the UK.
