Second Quest development opens in city
Quest on Manchester is the second Quest location in Christchurch. A third, Quest on Tuam is due to open in April 2019.

The newly opened and purpose built Quest on Manchester offers guests a relaxed and comfortable accommodation experience in the vibrant east side of Christchurch’s central business district, while giving Quest New Zealand some excellent leverage into its next round of proposed development.
Quest on Manchester is the second Quest location in Christchurch and brings 46 serviced apartment style hotel rooms, including studio, one, and two bedroom apartments, to the central city.
Quest Christchurch is the existing Quest location in Worcester Street within the CBD, which has 67 serviced studio, one, two, and three bedroom apartments.
Quest’s third Christchurch location Quest on Tuam, another purpose built building, was originally due for completion in 2011 ready for the Rugby World Cup until the earthquakes slowed central city growth and development. Queston Tuam will now open in April 2019.
“We feel there is more capacity for Questlocations in Christchurch, and we’re excited to be opening our second location there,” says Quest Group General Manager, Adrian Turner. “Quest on Manchester is our first Quest location in Christchurch built specifically for us.”
Quest on Manchester is a $15 million investment and has been developed by Canterbury Property Investments principals Miles Yeoman and Craig Newbury on the site of the former Coker’s Hotel, which was demolished after the 2011 earthquakes.
“We have engaged experienced and capable development partners who have an understanding of the locations they work in,” Adrian says.
Quest is very much an outcomes-based accommodation group. Property is part of what we do, but we’re not a property group so we rely on our development partners to get us those outcomes.”
The outcome here is a purpose-built accommodation facility with all the modern facilities business and domestic travellers can expect from Quest Apartment Hotels all around New Zealand, especially in its new locations, including climate controlled rooms, bring you own device capable TVs, and fully equipped kitchenettes in studio apartments.
Adrian says Quest on Manchester’s location meets the demand of Quest’s corporate and domestic clientele, and links in with its plans for future development.
Quest Apartment Hotels has more than 160 properties across New Zealand, Fiji and Australia, all located in central business districts, suburban, and regional areas with close proximity to business centres and key tourist destinations.
Quest Apartment Hotels offers an alternative for travellers to a hotel or motel, where business travellers would have to work, sleep, and eat in one cramped space, and families and groups needed multiple rooms at high expense.
“That’s what makes apartment hotels an excellent option for travellers,” Adrian says.
“A Quest Apartment Hotel is your home away from home, complete with separate living, dining, and sleeping areas, work stations, and fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Our regular housekeeping, valet laundry and dry cleaning services, baby sitting booking service and selected local restaurant chargeback arrangements are options our guests find invaluable.”
Quest was born from humble beginnings in 1988, with one property in Fitzroy on the fringe of Melbourne’s central business district.
30 years later, Quest has emerged to become the largest and most successful apartment hotels brand in Australasia.
