Australia: Quest Echuca, an aparthotel in northern Victoria, has undergone a major refurbishment, with an investment just shy of AUD$1 million.

Work at the 60-key property included full recarpeting, new furniture fit-out, bedding, bathroom modifications, new in-room kitchen appliances, updated in-room entertainment facilities and more.

Franchise business operator of Quest Echuca, Brendan Du Kamp, said: “There’s no denying that the past 12 months have been challenging and whilst necessary, border closures have taken a toll on local operators such as myself. However, what is telling is the level of enthusiasm and appetite we’ve seen among the domestic corporate and leisure markets who, when safe to do so, have been eager to come to town and experience all that Echuca has to offer."

“We are seeing a consistent uplift, particularly among business travellers mirroring the resumption of more standardised business operations nationally, which is wonderful. When people stay at Quest Echuca, they will now experience a world-class apartment hotel product, while gaining an appreciation for the heritage of the area. We worked with the Echuca Historical Society (EHS) to create a series of photographic artworks which tell our story as Australia’s paddle boat capital and largest inland port," he added.

The property's original furniture has been donated to the Salvation Army Echuca Moama, with sales proceeds going towards helping vulnerable members of the community.

“The pre-existing furniture was still in great condition, so we’re glad it’s gone to a worthy cause, people will continue enjoying it for many years to come, and funds raised will help people in need. It’s a win-win," said Du Kamp.
