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.

There was also a connecting room with two singles for our son! Large glass doors led out to a courtyard with table and chairs. Everything about this... More

Our room was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is in a good quiet location opposite the bayside walk and close to foreshore cafes/restaurants and the city. Handy good quality onsite restaurant for breakfast or dinner. Only negative was having to carry our luggage upstairs to our room - use of an elevator would have... More

We had the one bedroom Bayview apartment situated right on the Esplanade with its own balcony, complete with table and chairs. Don't mess around, if you can possibly afford to splash out it is well worth it. The view out across the bay is to die for, especially when the moon is romantically rising over the bay (as it did...

This Hotel has gone through several name and ownership changes through the years. The latest management seems to have it right. Nice modern rooms and a great location with easy parking. The staff we polite and I would stay again.

Very close to Geelong CBD, good rooms with a comfortable bed. Situated right on the bay with views from the restaurant while enjoying a nice drink. We had an upstairs room with a small balcony, very tidy. There are many food choices in Geelong and it's about a 1.5km walk.

The location is lovely on the esplanade. I booked by phone and the staff were lovely. They were just as nice when I arrived. The room was clean, neat and the bed was the best I have slept on in accommodation for a long time. Would highly recommend.

Expected more of a motel experience but was pleasantly surprised with more Hotel than Motel. Staff at breakfast were extremely obliging helping out with anything we were after and with a muffin/cake and candle for my daughter's 10th Birthday. The bed sheets were definitely Hotel standard - crisp, fresh, and lush! More than happy and recommend.

Great hotel with a a restaurant. Rooms have been updated, so are clean, fresh and comfortable. Slept well. Breakfast was very good. Room has plenty of space to work and prepare for a meeting and then relax at the end of the day. There is only stairs so if you struggle with stairs...you need to request a ground floor room......
