we recently stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, the size was fantastic! very spacious and the bathroom had a amazing huge spa bath. It did awhile for the rooms to heat up but once they were running was great place to stay.

We booked one night through a mystery deal having landed at 7pm at Geelong airport before the start of our Great Ocean Road adventure! It was a wet and miserable night when we arrived so this was actually an excellent choice. Very friendly, clean and comfortable room that was actually quite spacious. I stayed with my partner, neither of us... More

I choose Quality Bayside for each trip I make to Geelong. The rooms are comfortable and very well presented. The furnishings may not be the latest but everything you need is there. Free off-street undercover parking underneath your room is a bonus and breakfast (when I don't leave too early) is delicious. I especially love the personal touch of the... More

Clean and spacious rooms, handy to Central Geelong. Pleasant walk along the beach. Nice restaurant if you don't want to go far to eat. Pleasant and accommodating staff. Heating on and room warm on arrival. Thanks, appreciated.

It was a spur of the moment decision to go for a long weekend when we saw the Wotif deal which promised "others will be envious of the deal you're getting". So we were excited about going to the Bayside and (foolishly) expected water views. Got there to find the deal was nothing "special" at all - standard rates! Plus... More

We had booked into this hotel for 2 nights but decided to stay for 1 night only. Upon entering the room our first impressions was that it was very old and dated. The fridge looked like it was from decades ago and all furnishings were old and run down. The bathroom felt dirty despite being cleaned. The bed itself was... More

I called reception (while out for dinner) and were told they would move us to another room and when we arrive back at the... More

By far the cleanest and best hotel in Geelong, and with excellent service and views of the bay. The restaurant at the front serves some of the better steaks here, and as a bonus, it's next to the current (2014) mayor's house (I believe he used to be a paparazzi in the UK?).

Super easy to find right on the bay. Check-in & check-out was quick with very friendly staff. Room & bathroom was super clean & well equipped. However, the main living area was a little cramped for a family of 4. Kids bedroom with 2 single beds was a little sparse. Just the 2 single beds with bedside tabel between. Nowhere... More
