'Quite all' cannot be used together.

Either 'quite right' or 'all right' should be used.

The correct sentence should be: He said it was quite right to reject the offer.

Difference between 'Quite' and 'Very'

'Quite' denotes 'perfectly, completely'. It cannot be used to replace 'very'.
Don't say: She is quite lovely.
Say: She is very lovely.

Don't say: He is quite handsome.
Say: He is very handsome.

Note: 'Quite' is used with positive degree as follows -

quite chilly, quite cool, quite warm, quite rift, quite wrong, quite alone, quite well.
