“Great Motel close to Geelong and Surf Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We booked this motel for one night recently and after taking the wrong turn eventually found our way back to the motel. Upon arriving we were given a room that the TV didn't work so were given an upgrade which was very comfortable indeed. The room and ensuite were spacious and the motel itself is on a very quiet road so if you want a peaceful sleep this is the motel for you.
The owner was very friendly and could have not been more helpful.
I would recommend this motel to anybody visiting the Surf Coast region.

Me and my wife stood there for one day and night in February.
Because the supermarkets are very close ,we bought some meat and prepared a BBQ. The owner is very friendly and kind and she gave us the ketchup and plates for free. Even more , she gave us the possibility to wash our clothes for free (we were coming from a 4 day trip on The Ocean Road ). The pool is behind the motel and is clean.
The price was very competitive with the other hotels and motels in Geelong. We took a room without air conditioning and it was ok. The position is great, in just a few minutes you can get everywhere in Geelong.
We recomand it to everybody and we would like to enjoy another stay in this unforgettable place.
Thanks.

The aristocrat is nothing spectacular, but its clean, quiet and very inexpensive. It had a hair dryer, which is unusual for 3*. There are tea and coffee facilities and good tv. We only stayed one night, our room was ready despite arriving before check in.

The Aristocrat is similar to many establishments of its age (30-40 years I would imagine; OK for an overnight stop or a base for attendance a conference or function). The rooms are compact and, unusually in 2013, there is no air-conditioning. Cooling is by ceiling fan or opening the windows! The television is an older style. The Aristocrat is on the surf coast edge of the Geelong urban area and very convenient to the relatively new Geelong bypass.

Room Tip: There is no fitness centre or restaurant.

Stayed here for one night while going to the football in melb (from south west vic), have driven past many times and wondered what it was like, good clean rooms, good value and while it is on the edge of geelong it is great location from the bypass and all of geelong is there if you want it, also would be good base for surf coast . will stay again here unlike some other overpriced places in geelong
