Rooms ok a little aged bit most have that cosy feel to them. Slightly away from main cbd but a lovely walk to work. Friendly helpful staff. Nice views from the restaurant and really lovely food at the black salt restaurant.

Good quality room, convenient location.. Our biggest problem/frustration was that we were charged our room cost ($400) plus $100 bond on arrival and then had to pay the room cost again on check out due to the first payment only being a 'pre-authorisation fee'.. Regardless of this we had to have enough money in our account to pay twice.. Has... More

We stayed a Saturday night and found the hotel room clean and well presented. The staff were friendly and our booking was efficient. it was an easy 10 minutes walk along the water into central Geelong. The one comment was that the bed wasn't as comfortable as it could be, but they also took that on board. Recommended

It's almost very easy to overlook this venue as you pass-by, as it is quite discreet in appearance and directly across the street from stunning Bay views that tend to grab your attention. However, the rooms are great, the staff very helpful and attentive and the restaurant and bar has a great selection of quality meals and drinks. The buffet... More

It was an extravagant decision to stay at the Quality Bayside as we only live a short distance away but after a night out it was nice to come back to a hotel room; and it was very nice to be able to relax in it during the day. We had a great balcony room overlooking the bay. It was... More

Stayed during the Cadel Evans ride weekend, good central location and walking distance to town center. Staff willing to open cafe early for caffeine fix and breakfast. The rooms where of a good size, clean and quite. Would stay again when next in Geelong.
