New Zealand: Quest Apartment Hotels is to open a property in Palmerston North on New Zealand's North Island next month.

A joint venture between local Maori group Rangitāne o Manawatū and Wallace Development, Quest Palmerston North includes studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments and features amenities for long and short term guests.

The 40-apartment building replaces the existing Quest hotel in Palmerston North and is positioned in the city's CBD with proximity to Palmerston City Library, Jetts gym, and the Manawatu River Walkway, Victoria Esplanade and Lido Aquatic Centre.

Quest group general manager Adrian Turner said: "We decided to do a new property in Palmerston North because we saw the economic growth that was happening in the region. We felt that the existing product that has served us so well needed to be at the standard of properties we have opened recently at Quest on Manchester in Christchurch and Quest Tauranga Central."

Quest New Zealand CEO Stephen Mansfield added: "We expect Quest Palmerston North to attract more business and leisure travellers to the area, and the serviced apartments we offer encourage guests to patronise local businesses for groceries, meals and to experience local attractions, so it’s an exciting development for the whole area around Palmerston North. Of course, a busy hotel also means jobs, and hiring locals helps our guests have the best possible experience with us - they get the inside information on what to do in their free time while they’re staying at the property."
