Eyes on Penrith Hotels


The Thornton Estate in Penrith is attracting attention following the recent sale of the completed Quest Hotel for $30.25M.

The Thornton apartment precinct is a joint venture development between St Hilliers, and First Point Projects retail and community developers

The Quest Hotel project was delivered by St Hilliers and features 115 apartments over seven levels, comprising studio, one and two-bedroom configurations, and includes on-site parking, a conference room and gym. The hotel is located adjacent to Penrith railway station within walking distance of Westfield Penrith.
