My husband and I have been coming to the waterfront apartments now for 5 consecutive years and I would not dream of staying anywhere else in Geelong. We come from England for around 3 months each year over the Christmas period as my daughter and family live nearby. I book the apartment with Kate (we always have the same apartment)... More

My family (2 Adults & 3 Children) have just stayed at The Waterfront Apartments Geelong last weekend. We don't get away very often, so wanted a little luxury & good ocean view. WOW, we certainly got that! When 1st booking accomodation, I went through trip advisor to see other reviews. I was a bit wary after reading lots of dreadful... More

I have stayed at the waterfront appts in Geelong on 3 occasions between 5-30 nights. The location is great... Close to very central to town, shopping, a gym, waterfront etc. The first time was an appt run / operated by an organisation called waterfront appts. Putting it bluntly, it was average at best. Variable communication, appt had marked carpet, not... More

The one bedroom apartment we were assigned was poorly maintained. It had an odd, musty smell, somewhat reminiscent of student lodgings (the apartment manager denies any smell). The carpet was dirty (with an odd smell in parts), even though the apartment manager claimed they had been very recently cleaned (and recently replaced). Toilet paper was down to a quarter of...

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights over the weekend. We read the instructions on the booking website regarding the off site office for key pick up. We managed to find our way there after going round in a few circles only to find it is unattended. We rang the number on the door and was relieved to... More

We recently stayed in a one bedroom executive apartment for 5 nights on the 7th floor .One bedroom apartments apparently do not have bayside views but are offered as city views which includes views of the shopping complex car park directly across the road. The apartment was spacious and comfortable but showing signs of wear and tear. We were pleased... More

My family from interstate recently stayed here for a family get together. We found the customer service from booking to check in excellent. The apartments are very well located, clean and spacious. We had a gorgeous corner suite overlooking Fishmen's basin. The staff could have not been more helpful on our check in. However, dont expect you are checking in... More

From the complicated, inconvenient way of collecting the keys (having to first go to a dingy office tucked away in a back street, virtually impossible to find), to the all too small carpark (my car would not fit), to the maze of underground concrete pathways to hidden lifts, the whole experience bordered on the ridiculous. Nothing worked in the apartment... More
