2 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We stayed here for the weekend to relax but instead had sleepless nights. The pillows were so soft and uncomfortable; woke up with a sore neck. Room keys would not work on the lifts. There were cobwebs in the bathroom. Restaurant managers for dinner and breakfast lacked customer skills (Arsenio was very good). During dinner I didn't like the baby... More

Went to stay at the Novotel in Geelong for 4-5 days but after the first night in the superior bay view suite, we were not impressed. The superior room was really small and only a queen size bed. The bathroom was also pokey with shower over the small bath. The view was great, but the road below was really noisy.... More

We had the upgraded room on the 7th floor which had wonderful views over Corio Bay. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous.The rooms have a little balcony for the ones along the side but the full frontal view has a spacious balcony. The breakfast service is sumptuous with a wide variety.

Enjoyed a couple of days at a conference at this hotel recently. It's a sensational location - walking distance to everything. The staff are friendly; accommodating. For buffet is sensational. Evening meals and bar are good. Good place for a conference – moderate size. When I'm back in Geelong, I'll stay here.

Visited Geelong with my Son out of season for a week. This was listed as one of the best local venues and also recommended by friends locally. I have stayed at other Novotels over the years and, to be honest, my expectations were not particularly high. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the location and the hotel. Well designed, clean,... More

We where lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite on the 7th floor with fantastic views over Corio Bay. Rooms where huge and spotlessly clean, fantastic breakfast and considerate staff. Nice touch with the rose petal love heart on the bed but would have been better with real roses, fake pedals being a little corny.

We stopped here for an overnighter on the way to The Great Ocean Road. Fantastic friendly service, clean, quiet and central location. Very easy enjoyable stay. Have nothing bad to say about it at all. Highly recommend.

Check in and out very quick, all staff were exceptionally nice! Room on 6th floor was average size but clean. Bed was very comfortable. Pool looked lovely and warm - didn't end up using it though! Although room on side we could still see the sea front!

We recently were married at the Pier in Geelong and had a pleasant walk back to the Novotel for our first night of marriage. I had booked in early and the staff were very considerate in letting me check in at 11 am so that I could get changed for the wedding in the early afternoon. I was very pleasantly... More
