Booked thru bookings.com.au and were shown only the delux executive rooms obviously. When we arrived, we had to carry our heavy suitcases up a flight of stairs. There was no lift up to the second floor! There wasn't any sea views like in the picture. The rooms were passable...but no what we thought we were getting. The website should have... More

The rooms were well very clean and modern. Impressed by what I got for the price. Huge spa bath. Right on the waterfront. Walking distance to city centre (along the waterfront) and bus stop right out the front with buses running til 10 or 11pm. Great service. Full kitchen.

I stayed at the back of the hotel in an Executive room.I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel room that is so quiet. Great staff. Clean, comfortable rooms and very spacious. Breakfast was nice and dinner, although pricey was delicious! It was a bit of a walk into town and there are no other restaurants around so... More

I needed to spend the night somewhere clean and quiet, having flown in early in the morning and way before check in time. The staff were very nice and accommodating, allowing me an early check in. I then had to be out all day and returned late, again it was in an easy part of Geelong to get to from... More

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

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
