Good value Hotel just a short walk from Geelong CBD. Rooms are clean and well serviced. If you want a room with a view it's best to see what's available because most most rooms do not have views of the bay. I had an issue, on departure, with the breakfast option - so it would be best to make sure... More

Not only have I stayed here once in the past four years, but a few times a year. I will always be glad to stay at The Chifley, as I have known it. I have experienced a few different rooms, the ocean views is far by the best for me. A brisk walk down to Eastern Beach along the water... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during the cadel Evans great ocean ride event. Room was clean and large. We didn't have water views from our room and parking was very scarce as it was all unallocated so when we got in late at night due to flight delays we had to park on the street. Bed was massive and very... More

Lovely big hotel room, with a very comfy king size bed. Great amenities - free Wi-Fi, coffee and tea making facilities, well positioned T.V. Great position, just a very short car ride (or nice walk) from the centre of Geelong.

A wonderful place to relax and explore Geelong , there is lots to see from the water to the arts and crafts. Also with a short drive you can visit the zoo and the RAAF Museum at Point Cook. A visit to Gold Class movies after dinner at the Black Salt Restaurant which is part of the motel, well worth... More

Had two perfect nights here in a two bed room apartment overlooking the bay from the lounge and a large private terrace. Clean, well appointed suite with a great big spa bath. Kitchen was well kitted out and full laundry facilities in the suite. Blackout curtains helped to provide an excellent nights sleep for kids and us. Great, helpful staff.... More

Stayed here for a short break. Very comfortable room with great views over Corio Bay and a reasonable walk to the city centre. Enjoyed walking along The Esplanade each morning to soak in the sights and enjoy the variety of cafes and restaurants this great city has to offer. Enjoyed one evening meal in my room which was very nice... More

I was a walk up the night I stayed. Not many rooms left to choose from so I ended up in a disabled room on ground floor. Room was okay but lots of noise from neighbours banging doors and talking outside. Parking is a premium here. Restaurant food nice but a little pricey I thought. $70 for an entree, main,... More
