Paul is a great and funny guy and also a good host! The place has a beautiful location and the house has a great character. Bathrooms are clean and good showers. The bed in room 2 is maybe a little bit old/soft. There are a lot and I mean a lot of dvds so u are never bored. The price... More

I just wanted to start by saying that I am writing this review from the comfort of room 5 at Gatehouse on Ryrie. Decided on a surprise weekend getaway with my fiancée for her birthday and decided to spend the night in Geelong. I normally look for budget accommodation as we don't often spend long in the rooms other than... More

Thanks again to Paul for being so accommodating. What a fabulous place for groups. Central location, gorgeous rooms, great breakfast, spotlessly clean and exceptional value for money. We will be back next year!

Thank you to Paul, who was warm, friendly and inviting - to the point where we joined a gathering of his friends for the night - Excellent evening The house is tastefully decorated reflecting the period charm, clean and has a welcoming feel. Great location - within walking distance from South Geelong railway station, but far enough away so there... More

We stayed at the Gatehouse on Ryrie for a night whilst travelling through Geelong. Such a lovely place. Beautiful piece of history. Paul was a lovely host! Such a great price which was inclusive of parking & breakfast!!! Room was lovely & keeping with the theme of the building in regards to furniture & decor.

Paul was the perfect host, helpful and accommodating it really did feel like we were coming back home after our trip. The road is very busy outside but the location and personal feel to the place more than made... More

We stayed for an overnight and the place met all our requirements. Basic breakfast in the morning was easy and as we had a late night was great to stumble in at 10am without agro. Paul is great and very accommodating - we had no issues with noise (although it was a Saturday night), and yes the street lights did... More

I liked this place. Very old fashion, but in a good shape, and comfortable beds. Bad wifi. Average breakfast, nice staff and excellent location. Easy to park, easy to find. Go for a night or two, but don't stay too long, as Ocean Grove, Queenscliff etc are nicer.

The location was very central and within walking distance to the main shopping area and waterfront. We were warmly greeted by the host and shown where to park and escorted to the one bedroom apartment we had booked. The accommodation was in period style from the time of the original building with modern day extras like TV & central heating.... More
