Amazing. We were lucky enough to stay in the best of the best here. Nicely furnished, complete with everything you need for a break away. Clean and tidy. Walking distance to Westfield or for a Stroll around the park. Don't miss out in staying at the next location in Geelong.

We've stayed here twice now, and will continue to do so when we visit Geelong. Greg is always helpful and accommodating. The apartments are in a great location, within walking distance to everything, and they're clean and comfortable. Truly a home away from home. Thanks Greg, always a great host!!

We had an excellent stay at the Waterfront apartments - A few management companies look after some of the waterfront apartments - we were fortunate enough to be in the hands of Greg and Jenni. Greg met us out the front at the time agreed on and showed us everything - walked us through step by step and the apartment... More

Kate & Jenny at 'Geelong Bay Escapes' made our booking for a 2 bedroom Waterfront Apartment and it didn't disappoint.The view was spectacular, the amenities were brilliant, it was so close to Westfield (please note we are shopaholics and were able to feed our babies and leave them to nap in the apartment with their dads so we could shop...

Geelong has been a stopping place much in need of better accommodation. Over the years the well know resting places like the Four Points Shetaton have lost any sense of customer services so we have been looking for services apartments without much success. Some of them have been a horror !! This was a good find. Great location spoiled only... More

Great apartment location, BUT very tired and worn. Mattresses old and lumpy, furniture old and stained but with good kitchen, bathroom and laundry amenities. Manager Greg quite abrupt and curt on check-in early afternoon. Well rehearsed welcome dialogue but no customer service. We do corporate business in Geelong on a regular basis but won't be returning to this accommodation. Get... More
