Refurbishment pays dividends for Quality Hotel Parnell

Multi-million dollar refurbishment pays dividends for Quality Hotel Parnell

Quality Hotel Parnell is celebrating a new Qualmark rating increase to become a Hotel Four Star Plus after a five-year refurbishment programme costing in excess of $3.5 million.

Significant improvements have been made to all areas of the property, with extensive renovations and upgrades to its 102 hotel rooms and eight purpose built conference venues.

The refurbishment programme has also included the renovation of Gladstone’s Restaurant & Bar, the property’s onsite restaurant, which is open seven days a week for breakfast lunch and dinner for hotel guests and the public.

Quality Hotel Parnell Ltd chairman, John Smith, is delighted the property has achieved this superior rating after the extensive refurbishment programme and years of hard work.

“This is a well-deserved achievement for Quality Hotel Parnell and everyone involved in the refurbishment,” says Smith. “We are expecting that this will reflect in an increase in hotel revenues which will result in a significant boost for the organisations we support.”

Quality Hotel Parnell is owned by the Norman F. B. Barry Foundation and operated as a charitable trust that supports the local community and various charitable organisations including the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind and St John Ambulance.

Choice Hotels Australasia’s CEO, Trent Fraser, is equally pleased with the property’s success and congratulates Quality Hotel Parnell on the effort made to attain this new rating.

“We applaud the entire team on the new rating and look forward to seeing them reap the benefits of the hard work and money invested,” says Fraser.

The property is conveniently located within walking distance of the historic Parnell village, Auckland CBD, Auckland Domain and Museum, Newmarket shopping precinct and is close to the Auckland Hospital, Auckland University and Vector Arena.

Quality Hotel Parnell offers free onsite parking, wireless internet, complimentary morning newspaper, 24-hour reception, room service and porters, and a coffee shop/café.
