Waterfront Apartments are just what I have been looking for in Geelong ! The position is awesome, close to everything ! Just what you need for a shopping weekend away ! The Apartments are clean and have everything we needed and the Supervisors are terrific, so happy to help with anything while we stayed there !

Right from the start of our stay the level of service was appalling. Room was untidy (pair of jocks still in room!) Trying to communicate with Greg was hard work, he was incredibly rude and short with us every time we spoke with him. The cleaners had entered our room before we had checked out and once again we were... More

I stayed there for 2 nights for a family holiday. The location is the "ONLY" benefit of living there; close to Geelong Westfield, Coles and a few Waterfront restaurants and bars. The room is indeed spacious but furnitures are quite outdated; shaky chair legs and old sofas. Pluses (+) They share an indoor pool and gym with Novotel Geelong Free... More

The apartment was very spacious with great sized rooms. The beds were comfortable and the bonus ensuite bathroom was great. Very clean and lovely view. The kids loved the pool despite it being very deep. Close to Restaurants and shopping. Fantastic location to waterfront activities. Friendly staff welcomed us.

Booked our holiday with Kate, and could not be happier with the service provided. Everything promised was provide and more. The apartment was absolutely beautifully furnished and the location was perfect for our family holiday. Would truly recommend this apartment/location to anyone, even had two under cover car parks, which was fantastic. Kate and Jenny were very professional and were... More

We just stayed with my family, place is run down, holes in doors, not very clean. Car park very tight if you have 4WD. Would not recommend, pay and extra $20 and stay next door. Lady who we dealt with was very quick to take your money and unprofessional. Not happy customer at all.

We stayed for 2 nights with our 5 month old baby. The lift was broken for our whole stay meaning we had to carry a pram/shopping/baby up the stairs which proved to be quiet difficult. Paid for a waterview apartment but could barely see any water due to trees being in the way and being on the first floor. Location... More

Location is key and the waterfront apartments are close to everything! Once we parked the car (which is included) we walked everywhere. It's unfortunate that we couldn't get an ocean view but otherwise the room was big with lots of space. Wifi needs to be improved to reach all rooms. Greg was great, he was so welcoming and when we...

Thank you for taking the time to review us here.

The location of these apartments is superb, 30 seconds walk to the beach, another 30 seconds to the pier, 10 minute walk to the eastern beach with the famous swimming enclosure which is awesome for both kids and adults. Our apartment was very clean, spacious (2.5 bedrooms, but big), big TV, short walk to the very good swimming pool, gym... More
