We stayed here just the other night and had a great stay. We were in room 4 - a spa room- and we were very happy :) the room was huge, immaculately clean, nicely decorated, and the bed and pillows were comfy. The spa was really deep and definitely comfortable for two, and never ran out of hot water, which... More

Stayed for 2 nights, with family, room lay out great, stayed in a family room, had separate bedroom for kids. Very clean and tidy, though showing its age, BUT amenities in the room and linen etc were lovely. Even had a small cook top, microwave, dishes etc. Nice and quite area and located next to a pub and a safeway... More

New management as of 6 months ago. They have done an excellent job cleaning up the rooms and were particularly friendly and helpful in getting us a last minute room. Tidy layout, comfortable beds, complimentary breakfast, and more facilities than most in this price range (toaster and microwave as well as usual kettle, hairdryer and tv). Exceeded our expectations for... More

Stayed for 2 nights, first night was kept awake by noisy neighbours but second night was very quiet for a peaceful sleep. Great location with an excellent pub right next door with great meals and pokies. Woolworths supermarket just across the road. 5 minutes drive down the road and your in the heart of Geelong. Friendly and helpful owners. Only... More

We stayed at the back of the complex, so there was no road noise. You're located across the road from a supermarket that also serves liquor, next door to a pub, and on the corner are a couple of nice restaurants which we tried in the course of our visit. The hotel is looking a little old but the new... More

The unobtrusive entrance to the motel is tiny and can be very easily missed so drive slowly as you approach it. The tricky turning lanes opposite can be busy so you may may even have to do a U-turn to get to it. it was our first time at the Shannon. We weren't expecting too much but the Shannon did... More

Thank you for your review we appreciate the negative and positive points of your review as we only took over the Motel 4 months ago and are constantly investigating ways to improve all aspects of the Motel. We will shortly have Flags out the front to highlight our entrance which hopefully assist guests in identifying the... More

3 of us stayed here for one night on a trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. The proprietor was friendly and welcoming and we were able to check in early with no hassle. The hotel has Woolies across the road, a hotel/bistro next door, pizzeria and thai restaurant across the road making its location ideal if you need to stock up... More

Maree and Kieran are making such a difference to this motel. The rooms are so welcoming and comfortable. My choice for accommodation in Geelong. The hotel next door is so handy for meals and drinks. A supermarket across the road kept me happy for snacks.
