Do not stay here! You will be more comfortable under a tree or in the boot of a parked car. The Colonial Lodge is NOT a motel, it is a flea-pit. The owner is exceptionally rude. The rooms are fitted with ancient, broken furniture that has been repaired with electrical tape. The staff will invade your privacy. Nothing functions as... More

Im glad I never continued with my booking and cancelled my booking as the guy who answered the phone was absolutely APALLING, disgustingly rude and did not attempt to help me with my query re: cost for a 2 year old and basically yelling.." I dont care.. I charge, you not like..CANCEL".."You not happy, CANCEL..". This guy was absolutely rude... More

Stayed two nights for a workshop, was cheap and you get what you pay for. Room was tidy and quiet, beds were comfortable and linen clean. Lack of wi-fi in this day and age is a bit of a downer but otherwise, an ok stay.

This is exactly as it looks, cheap and nasty. It was dirty, smelly and just horrible. We were desperate for a room and this was one of last available in Geelong on a busy weekend and now know why it was not booked. We now wish we hadn't bothered. The owner upon checking in was rude and felt he needed... More

No matter how desperate you are. I stayed here when I was. The owner demanded I pay a key deposit of $10 which he never refunded. When I complained he insisted he had paid me at the same time as insisting he didn't have to refund it unless I came back to the hotel. Other guests spat and smoked outside... More

The owner/manager is loud, whining, snivelling, blinking, abusive and a bully.There was enough material here for a thirteenth episode of Fawlty Towers as the owner ranted and raved at 10.30 on a Saturday night after one of his guests broke off his key in a dodgy lock. Because I had secured the room with my credit card for my friend... More

Dirty, horrible hotel, even though I had booked online the owner demanded my credit card details and would not let me stay unless I gave it to him, he then wrote them down by hand in a diary, I have reported this practice to the bank. Rooms are old and dirty, car park is not big enough, very expensive for... More

Terrible hotel. The owner is creepy and perverse. I was asked to give all my personal details and when I questioned the owner about that, he held my hand saying that I shouldn't worry. I am a female and told him to not touch me. He said that I should trust him and that the hotel is safe. Anyway, the... More
