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

I always book via Geelong Bay Escapes and hosts Jenny and Kate have always accommodated to my preferences. The apartments which vary have always been of high standard. I highly recommend... 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

Stayed there just after Easter 2015. We were greeted at the front by the managers and given access to the car park. We were then given a comprehensive introduction to Geelong and some of it's features. This was very handy as we had never stayed there before. We were given keys to our room and assisted with our luggage. The... More
