“could be better”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

My wife and i stayed in the motel for 3 nights ,the rooms are fine .but if you want wi.fi forget it as it never works and you will get no help trying to fix it, the food is shockingly over priced and poor
quality $64 for one cooked and 2 continental ,the pool area is not usable because off the mosquitoes ,and you dont get to park your car in front off your room

Dear Knight7
Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience of Quality Hotel Bayside Geelong (Formerly Chifley Hotel and Apartments Geelong).

I am sorry to learn you were disappointed with some elements of your stay. It is true that we have experienced some difficulties with our Wifi service over the past couple of weeks. This was due to infrastructure works in order to improve the overall service. Although this did, regrettably, incur some issues, it was for the overall improvement of the service for the future.

Breakfast is available in Black Salt restaurant, either as Full Buffet, Continental Buffet, or a la carte. If pre-booked as part of your accommodation package, a reduced rate of $20.00 per person, rather than $27.50 is available on the full buffet. A la carte options start from $12.00.

Having checked with our Maintenance team, we are unaware of any issue with mosquitoes in the pool area. It is certainly not an issue currently. My apologies that they were present when you attempted to use the pool - weather can be an influencing factor.

The multi-level nature of the building does mean that car parking cannot necessarily be assigned outside of your room. However, car parking is plentiful, with undercover options available.

I am pleased to note that you found your room to be satisfactory and hope you will return to stay with us again soon.
