“Great stop over”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

My wife and I made a last minute decision to stay in Geelong on a magnificent Sunday afternoon. This property presented as a really well priced option with views of the ocean. Reception staff were helpful and we received an upgrade. The bar provided a relaxing atmosphere for a restful afternoon. Free Wi-Fi is always appreciated and room service for our evening meal was efficient and tasty.

Would recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade.

We just had one night here and were pretty pleased that this place was close to the waterfront.

Room very good. Bed comfortable. Bathroom good. Noise level during the night NOT good - maybe something to do with the design of the place? Cars park underneath some rooms and also in the courtyard which is in the middle of the complex. During the night talking, cars leaving - woke us up. Front desk not all that welcoming. And why did they want to check our room prior to departure? Did they think we had stolen their towels, tv??

All in all we think we should have gone to Queenscliff!

Dear QE2Melbourne,
Thank you for your feedback.
We welcome all feedback, some of which may not be complimentary and highlights areas we need to improve whilst positive guest comments help inspire the team to excel in customer service.
I am disappointed your night was interrupted by overly noisy neighbours and would remind you that we offer 24 hour reception to action any issues especially noise from other guests.
We are required to check the room and Mini Bar upon departure for guests who have provided a cash or EFTPOS payment requiring a refund of the bond for incidentals. I am sorry if this was not fully explained on check-in.
Thank you once again for your comments.
Yours sincerely

We stayed here over summer (Jan 14) for one night. This was the most affordable option given that we were a last minute booking on the pier to pub weekend - and didn't want to stay in a cheap motel. We requested a view - and got one! Lovely ocean view from our room (No.65) Room was very clean and tidy - bed comfortable (although I don't like 2 singles being pushed together to make a queen/king). Bathroom very spacious - and aside from needing a spray of mould remover here and there - also very clean. Although we were on the main road side (hence the view) - the traffic noise was not a problem - however guests arriving back from festivities during the early hours of the morning were disruptive as our room was directly over the taxi drop off area. Would be better if cab's could drop patrons off on the main road. Front desk staff very friendly, helpful and accommodating - and nice to have parking close to rooms. Hotel is a pleasant 10 minute stroll to the pier and restaurants etc. Or the restaurant downstairs seemed like a good option (we just wanted the walk). Overall - a very positive stay - and a lovely night away from kids. Thanks ... we'll be back.

Room Tip: Nice to have the sea view - however if staying on a Friday/Saturday night - beware of drunken guests...

Friendly and professional staff attended to my every requirement with no fuss. Highly recommend the breakfast for $19 it was delicious. Free WI-FI and several Foxtel movie channels. This hotel has thought of EVERYTHING. (Even a range of newspapers for reading at breakfast). BEST VALUE for your dollar.

Room Tip: Smokers should request a balcony. You may pay a little extra but the bay views are amazing. I would...

Stayed in the 2 bedroom family room. with Bay-side views. Immaculately presented and the staff were extremely pleasant & helpful. Pretty comfortable for 3 adults & 1 child.

The room faces the bay & a major road but with the door closed at night noise was not an issue

Parking was a bit tight but I drive a Mitsubishi Triton which is quite long but a hint there a few individual spots under the car park to the right as you enter which should avoid those inadvertent knocks to your car.

Internet was free but we seemed to have problem with all our devices picking up the signal, but as we were staying 1 night we didn't bother following it up.

We plan to visit more Geelong more often and it we will definitely stay here again

Room Tip: We had a Bayside View room which faced the road. The view is stunning.

This is a great hotel for families. We had a great stay. Facilities were fantastic, pool, family room (with separate bedroom for kids), wifi availability, parking on site, service was great no matter who we spoke to. We also had tickets included to Adventure Park which was a great bonus. Buffet breakfast was also great. We won’t hesitate to come back next time we are in town.

Booked the executive room on a wotif unknown special at the same price as a normal room. Room very spacious with updated fittings, nice balcony overlooking pool, very clean. Work desk with decent comfortable chair. Comfy lounge chair to watch tv. Restaurant is tops, with fine dining, not cheap but you get what you pay for. Checking efficient and with a greeting and smile.
