A team of Mason Owen, WYG, and contrcator Graham has handed over the £10m aparthotel to operator Quest, the Australian company’s first site in the UK.
The building at 58-72 Church Street has been let to the Australian operator and includes 100 serviced apartments, reception, conference room and gym, and is next to Liverpool One. Vabeld owns the building.
Quest has a portfolio of 170 hotels in its native Australia, but the Church Street site is its first venture in the UK.
Simon Bland, managing director, Mason Owen said: “Quest is a brilliant addition to the Liverpool hotel stock – it offers design-led, comfortable accommodation at an accessible price in arguably the best location in the city for both corporate and leisure visitors.
“The city continues to enjoy a consistently strong hotel demand – just one of the many reasons Quest chose Liverpool to open its inaugural UK hotel.
“The trend for the aparthotel model is propagating quickly globally as hotel users are looking for something that sits in between a traditional hotel offering, with onsite service and facilities, combined with the self-catering nature and privacy of an Airbnb or traditional apartment let. We expect to see operators like Quest enjoy strong occupancy levels.”
