Nestled amidst ‘The Mends Street Precinct’ and positioned off the South Perth Esplanade with access to a wide selection of upmarket cafes, retailers and a 24 hour supermarket, making it an ideal location for business travellers and tourists visiting Perth.
Featuring postcard views of the Perth skyline Quest South Perth Foreshore is located just 6 minutes by car or 10 minutes by ferry from the city’s major corporate offices while being within walking distance from the Perth Zoo and the Royal Perth Golf Club. The apartment hotel is also close to Curtin University and the Bentley Technology Park.

The main conference room comes with the latest interactive audio-visual equipment, designed to make professional meetings, team building activities, training sessions and product launches an effortless task.
Quest Apartment Hotels General Manager – Growth, James Shields, said that South Perth is seeing a growing number of business travellers and tourists enter the area, drawn by the suburb’s combination of strong economic activity in construction, logistics and health care services.
“Business and leisure travellers at Quest South Perth Foreshore in this fantastic location will be able to enjoy a modern and premium apartment hotel experience featuring contemporary interior design and architecture which we’re proud to lead in the Australian market,” Mr Shields said
Quest South Perth Foreshore is part of a larger development by Silverleaf including the Millstream Retail Arcade forming an extension of the existing retail outlets on Mends Street. The development is part of the Mends Street Connect South project, a $7.5 million major project to enhance and invigorate the Mends Street precinct and foreshore area by creating a thriving business and leisure environment.
Sue Doherty, Mayor for the City of South Perth said: “Connect South is an exciting major project that will transform the Mends Street precinct and improve public amenity through place activation, wayfinding, access to transport and greater economic opportunity,”
“The project will create an attractive pedestrian-friendly piazza, improve lighting in the area, and create active and passive spaces for visitors. Additionally, Connect South will build a strong connection between the South Perth Foreshore and Mends Street, creating a gateway to South Perth and the Perth Zoo, improving the visitor experience and reinforcing the links between South Perth, Elizabeth Quay and the Perth Central Business District.”
Quest Apartment Hotels Chief Commercial Officer, Craig Ryan, said that South Perth’s economic development will continue to attract relocation and business travellers to the area.
“Quest remains committed to the needs of its corporate customers. South Perth is one of the state’s fastest growing urban areas with thousands of small and medium sized businesses, government departments, universities and residents calling it home. We are proud to now accommodate extended-stay and relocating business travellers in the area with South Perth’s leading apartment hotel,” Mr Ryan said.
