Dream of building hotel in Hastings comes to fruition after ten years in the making
A new 35-room apartment-style hotel is going to be built in central Hastings late next year.
The $8million hotel will be built in a vacant building behind the Hawke's Bay Opera House, Municipal Building and Plaza.
Wallace Development Company Ltd will construct the hotel, which will be operated by Quest Apartment Hotels – NZ.
Mayor Sandra Hazlehurst said the prospect of establishing a new hotel in the Hastings CBD had been a long-term aspiration for the council, and "it is really exciting to finally be able to announce this development".
"The council has been working to get a hotel into the central city for 10 years, and I need to acknowledge the work of previous councils who have helped with this journey."
