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

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

The hotel is good and very clean. There is a nice restaurant with view of sea side and green park in front. It takes 5 minutes by taxi to the city centre. It is very comfortable to stay and relax during holidays or business trip.

Rooms are excellent, very spacious, modern and clean rooms. Great location very close to CBD and beach. We stayed the night before an early flight out of Avalon, we had a great night sleep and 24 hour reception made an early check out easy and convenient.
