Mt Eden’s brand new accommodation offering

Quest Mt Eden is conveniently located between Mt Eden Village and Eden Terrace, tucked back from the main road on Edwin Street. It is within easy walking distance to the shopping and entertainment precinct at Mt Eden Village, and the new City Rail terminal.
Quest welcomes a new franchisee to the team, with Nikita Seth stepping into the role.
Nikita is currently working at Quest on Queen where she has been for the past four and a half years, and also works for St John’s as a Payroll Officer. A Bachelor of Business graduate majoring in employment relations and human resources, she is looking forward to putting her skills into practice at Quest Mt Eden.
“I am extremely grateful to have this opportunity, I’m looking forward to providing a really hospitable experience for everyone who comes through the doors.” says Nikita.
At 23 years old, Nikita will be the youngest franchisee in the history of Quest Apartment Hotels New Zealand. She has grown up around the brand; her father is Kamal Seth, franchisee of Quest on Queen.
“I know my father will make a great mentor during the first few months, but he has also helped impart the knowledge for me to be able to work autonomously,” says Nikita.
“One piece of advice he gave me is that goodwill is the most important factor for running a business. Practice goodwill, and success will follow.”
This is just one of six new openings for Quest Apartment Hotels New Zealand in the next 12 months, including Queenstown, Cambridge Terrace in Christchurch, Lambton Quay in Wellington, Mt Maunganui, and Hastings.
Despite COVID-19 obstacles, business continues to stay strong as the country’s largest accommodation network remains a popular choice among professionals travelling domestically for work.
Group General Manager, Adrian Turner, says: “Quest Apartment Hotels New Zealand’s strong market position means growth to meet demand is a logical progression for the brand. The openings in the next year reflect locations which will benefit from the presence of a new accommodation provider.
“Mt Eden is a prime example of an up-and-coming business hub with increasing demand for serviced apartment-style accommodation. We’re thrilled to have a brand new offering in the area for corporate and non-corporate travellers.”
Quest established in New Zealand in 1998. The company prides itself on a local focus and local ownership in each of its regions.
