Great location. Accommodation upgraded to apartment style. Bedroom and bathroom excellent and kitchen with everything needed. Building works in progress but ear plugs provided if needed! Continental breakfast only but very good. This hotel will be amazing when all building works completed but meanwhile still worth a stay.

We were really fortunate to receive a room upgrade on this trip - THANK YOU!!!

The room itself was excellent - a fully self contained apartment with cooking facilities, dining table, lounge area and a balcony that overlooked the water. There was also an ensuite in addition to the regular bathroom.

Location was a huge feature of this motel - walking distance to downtown Geelong. They also had free bike use for anyone who likes a cycle.

The venue is undergoing some major renovations so parking was at a premium. I can also see noise being an issue if you were staying midweek - this wasn’t an issue for us.

Our only ‘drama’ (which is super trivial) was the intermittent wifi connection which impacted the ability to stream onto the TV - the streaming capability was advertised in the room but unfortunately worked sparingly.

Looking forward to staying here again.

Nice and adequate motel only a five minute drive from the centre of town or the Spirit of Tasmania (which we used the stay for prior to boarding). There are standard motel rooms but also apartment style with full kitchens and separate rooms. We were fortunate to get a room upgrade and it was sensational with a couple balconies, large living and dining area, main bedroom and huge bathroom. Appliances modern and even a washer/dryer in room. Big congratulations to Tamara on front desk for her great advice and also getting us upgraded. Professional and friendly service.

A huge apartment with a nice view. In spite of their warnings about onsite construction, I found that it was behind the building and not a problem. I didn’t hear any construction noise at all. The only noise was from traffic along The Esplanade and that was to be expected. It was just a short distance away from the town center so it was perfectly walkable yet sheltered from the noise and crowds of holiday makers.

The pillows were pretty hard, and I must mention that I missed out on proper and good quality Tea bags like Dilmah or Liptons, being a Tea Grower. The room was large Clean and Tidy and was very spacious.
