GC Hotel opens in Covid-19
When choosing to open a brand new 4.5 star apartment hotel on the Gold Coast, the Covid-19 pandemic was certainly not in the sights for the grand opening, but experienced franchisees Joshua and Fleur Nadzielski are very optimistic.The pair have gone full steam ahead launching Quest Apartment Hotel's first Gold Coast property in the heart of Robina, with confidence the region's pre-covid economic boom will continue post lockdown.
The $32-million Quest Robina opened on Monday 4th May 2020 and aims to fulfill an increasing need for business and leisure accommodation in the Robina and Varsity Lakes area. The property features 80 modern serviced apartments, a spacious business lounge, gym, outdoor lap pool and conference event facilities.Robina is a thriving hub of medical and educational facilities, and Quest Robina is perfectly positioned at the heart of it all.
The hotel is just footsteps from Robina Hospital and Bond University as well as the Gold Coast Titans' new home stadium, CBUS Super. Guests of Quest Robina will also enjoy shopping and dining at Robina Town Centre, all easily accessible by foot or Quest Shuttle Service.In fact, Robina is one of the most walkable and convenient locations on the Gold Coast, with specific dog friendly parks and walking tracks, and $15M New York inspired Robina City Parklands development breaking ground. However, a wide variety of public transport is also available, with the train station nearby and a trial soon commencing for an electric bus service with connections to Nobby Beach and G:Link.
Experienced franchisees Josh and Fleur, former owners of Quest Griffith in New South Wales, have opened the property recognising the important need accommodation continues to play for our essential workers.Quest's support program specifically for the healthcare fraternity, Quest Healthcare Assist, has helped ensure an allotment of rooms are available to front line health professionals, giving them a chance to rest and recover while self-isolating between shifts.
With bookings of three months plus being made, the need and importance of opening the doors of Quest Robina, even in this challenging period, has been apparent."It's been wonderful to be able to be there for members of the local community and accommodate those who need it most", said Josh.
Quest Robina is also helping support the Robina economy by employing 15 staff across management, front of house and housekeeping. In the midst of the lockdown, the commitment to ensuring the team are supported with employment has been the highest priority for the owners Josh and Fleur."A lot of energy has been undertaken to prepare Quest Robina, including the hand-picked team chosen to look after our guests. Supporting such wonderful hospitality professionals with employment stability will enable the business to push through this tougher time in turn we will be ready to serve our guests when the lockdown ends with the best experience possible."
Quest Robina's interiors embraces 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 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.
