We stayed at the Bayside late Dec last year in a two bedroom apartment, the rooms were a great size especially with a two year old. Very clean, plenty of parking, friendly staff and a great location close to the beach and the city, will definitely be coming back.

We stayed here for two nights over the NYE weekend. It was a last minute trip, and we were pleased that rooms were still semi affordable. However, the hotel has two types of rooms: older and refurbished. Yet the website doesn't make this clear at all, and advertises rooms showing the refurbished rooms only. Slightly disingenuous but not a big...

We have stayed at the Quality Hotel Bayside Geelong on several occasions. Most recently in December 2016 to attend a wedding on the Bellarine Peninsula. The hotel is conveniently located close to the city centre and is directly opposite Port Phillip Bay, affording some rooms water views. The rooms are clean and comfortable, however some rooms are older than others....

Our bed/sitting room for 2 nights was very large (in the brick building at the rear) and the bathroom was enormous. There were two armchairs and a desk chair, tea and coffee (but water was charged for), lots of power points - great for charging phones and other devices - and the bed was comfortable. Plenty of clothes hanging and...

We stayed in Geelong to break up a journey from Robe to Melbourne and this hotel was ideal for a 1 night stay. Our rooms were in a separate blocks a few minutes walk from the main reception. The rooms are a bit dated/tired, but clean. We were exhausted after a long drive, so opted to eat in the hotel...

My husband decided to bring us along for a business trip recently. Originally we planned to stay for just 4 nights but we had to extend our stay which was no issue at all. Originally I had booked a 2 bedroom suite with a grass area for my two young kids to be able to have an area to play...
