Positive Reviews

Steps from the beach...

Few guests fail to mention the hotel's prime location within a short walk of both Eastern Beach and all of the shops, restaurants, museums, and businesses of Geelong CBD. The train station is also close by, and offers an easy commute to Melbourne; the trip takes about 50 minutes.

Clean, comfortable rooms with a view...

Guests generally describe the rooms as very clean and spacious, with comfortable beds, well stocked minibars, and simple, modern decor. For many the real highlight is the view of the foreshore from the balcony, particularly from the upper floors. The views from the terrace and the restaurant are also widely described as beautiful.

The most important meal of the day...

Guests often rave about the extensive variety of dishes on offer at the breakfast buffet, and many send their compliments to the chef on the eggs cooked to order. The wait staff and reception team have also received high marks for cheerful, professional service.

Negative Reviews

Pricey parking...

Drivers are generally unimpressed with the high price for parking (valet only) and note that there is free street parking overnight in the area.

A bit of wear and tear...

Recent travellers are describing the room decor as somewhat dated, with some visible wear in the carpets, walls, and furnishings. The very "basic" bathrooms are also a downer for guests expecting something more luxurious, given the price.

Hits and misses...

Reviews of the staff seem to be a bit uneven, with many very positive reviews balanced out with accounts of long waits in the restaurant, unpleasant exchanges at the front desk, and unfortunate housekeeping oversights.
