“not one photo dipicted what the unit was like”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

booked online as all the photo's shown made the one bedroom unit look fresh, even though it advertised as an older style unit. Original kitchen with outdated carpet tweed old style couch, all other photo's showed were nothing like the unit we are in Hippy style with purple wallss and horrible brown bricks. toilet squeezed into corner in large bathroom but almost hitting the shower wall. Homelea rates this as 4 star lucky to be 3 Star. Keep in mind Homelea has other occommodation just down from it on separate block. Sorry we booked 2 nights.

The 1 Bedroom Apartment is our Cheapest Apartment catering for Guests who are travelling on a Budget as the refurbished Apartments are a slightly higher price but not by much. Comments from our Guest Book are as following: 23rd-24th Feb.from Qld. Comfortable, Clean & V Good Condition 14-15th Feb, from Vic Great Stay, Great Rest, Very Happy with our Room.. 26th-27th Feb From Germany Very friendly welcome and a nice and very quiet place 2nd March from Vic very nice area, will be back in 12 months, slept well, very peaceful, recommend to all, keep up the good work,if you come to Geelong, hope you find the same good work, 3rd March From S.A Very Welcoming and friendly, so roomy, & Comfortable & colourful (loved our stay) 6th March from Qld, very comfortable, quiet and nicely kept. 8th March from Vic Great room, great night.
The 4 Star advertised was our Private Cottage not the Apartments as this guest thought and both are self rated now but still kept to the AAA Star Ratings high standards. The pictures we show on the web site are our refurbished Apartments and the 1 bedroom is advertised as Older style. This Room is kept spotlessly clean and as for the colours.. I have had many comments from Guests that its nice to stay in a room that isnt a boring cream coloured Motel and it feels Homeley... The Colours may not be everyone's cup of tea but if the Guests who stayed in this Apartment had of told me they wernt happy, I would have accommodated them with an upgrade to a refurbished room... unfortunately we were not to know they wernt happy until now. We have not refurbished this room as after 13 Years in the Business we are leaving this room for future owners to put their own special touch on them and that way we can rent it out cheaper... Its unfortunate that this Guest was unhappy with their Stay but as you can see from the Visitors Book comments, all guests staying after.. were very happy with their room. We are through the Budget Chain and adhere to their very strict standards always and we are more than happy to explain what is in any of our rooms. At Homelea Accommodation you will always stay in a Spotlessly clean and maintained Room with Friendly staff to assist you always.

Parking outside your door. Spacious self-catering accommodation for disabled people - a rarity. Bathroom had rails and freestanding shower chair. Host was very friendly and knowledgeable.

A nice little place right on the waterfront in St Helen's just as you enter town. A little ways from main street, but very well kept. We were given the un-refurbished unit with some apology, as that was the last unit available, but were pleasantly surprised to find it very neatly kept and more than adequate. Fully furnished with a heater in the toilet (very important!), laundry on site, and fully equipped kitchen. Very friendly front desk, and very good value for money. Parking right in front of your unit.

This accomodation is pleasant for one or two nights. If booking online with Homelea or booking site always comfirm the price beforehand. In fine print there was an extra change for children or extra guests..Besides that okay.
