Matt Luscombe, chief executive officer of Cycas Hospitality, added, “Living in Australia for the last two years, I’ve seen first-hand how impressive Quest Apartment Hotels are in action. They offer business travellers a fantastic extended-stay accommodation service in an incredible network of locations.“I’m delighted Quest has chosen to partner with Cycas to launch Quest Apartment Hotels into the UK; a strong endorsement of our track record for excellence and growth momentum across the region’s fast-growing extended-stay sector.
