Quest com­plete for Mid­land ho­tel

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS - Justin Bian­chini

SWAN Mayor David Lu­cas was quick to bounce back af­ter Mon­day night’s al­ter­ca­tion at the Mid­land Town Hall.

The next night he of­fi­cially opened the Quest Ho­tel Mid­land be­fore of­fi­ci­at­ing at a cit­i­zen­ship cer­e­mony in the town hall.

He was also quick to wit when he ad­dressed guests at the apart­ment’s ho­tel open­ing.

“I’m just go­ing to check this mi­cro­phone. I did ask for one with a big fluffy bit of foam around it,” he said.

He told the Gazette he was thank­ful for mes­sages of sup­port from peo­ple for and against Swan’s plans for Mid­land.

“I just want to put it be­hind me and move on,” he said.

“The City of Swan is a great place to live, work and play, so busi­ness as usual.”

SWAN Mayor David Lu­cas of­fi­cially opened Mid­land’s tallest build­ing at a booked- out func­tion on Tues­day night.

The seven- storey Quest Ho­tel Mid­land has been open since March and Cr Lu­cas said he had al­ready had the priv­i­lege of stay­ing in it.

“Quest stands out from the crowd,” he told the joint Quest- Swan Cham­ber of Com­merce func­tion.

“Not only is it the tallest build­ing in Mid­land, but the mod­ern apart­ments that are an as­set to our com­mu­nity pro­vide bet­ter and more choice for busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers.

“I be­lieve Quest has made a smart choice in in­vest­ing in Mid­land be­cause so many ex­cit­ing new projects have just hap­pened or are about to hap­pen into the near fu­ture.”

Quest Apart­ment Ho­tels op­er­a­tions man­ager Roger Law said the comp­nay was very proud and ex­cited about the pro­ject.

“For us it’s about of­fer­ing a unique ac­com­mo­da­tion of­fer­ing in an area that re­ally needs it. We be­lieve the City of Swan has lots of op­por­tu­ni­ties… so we’re look­ing for­ward to be­ing a big part of the com­mu­nity,” he said.

Cr Lu­cas spoke about the Swan Val­ley’s ap­peal and said the new ac­com­mo­da­tion for do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional visi­tors would be a “cru­cial ele­ment to our tourism suc­cess”.

“Quest apart­ments add a high- qual­ity, flex­i­ble and ap­peal­ing op­tion,” he said.
