Bed was good size and clean. For the price I would have expected our room to be cleaned and new towels daily but it was not. We arrived at 5pm and were checked in by the cleaner as the manager was out. The next night our cards didn’t work. No manager in site. Called best western. The manager appeared from somewhere and spoke to my teenage sons(not nicely), swapped out the cards and took off. He went past me still outside on the hotel phone waiting for head office and didn’t say a word. Would I stay again? Probably not. Could only assume manager is not the owner

Dear Debamo, thank you for the gift of your feedback. We sincerely regret to read that you were not fully content with your stay. Our guest rooms would normally be serviced daily with towels changed in accordance with the in-room environmental care notice. I am sorry that due to the passing of time we are now at a loss to offer explanation as to why yours was missed on that day. Please kindly rest assured that you were checked-in by one of our fully-trained Receptionists who was simply been doing some public area cleaning tasks at the time your arrived. Our team member who assisted your sons with room re-entry is not known for any aloofness traits and we sincerely regret any misperceptions and misunderstandings with regards this.

Reasonably close to town, however not walking distance to anything. Restaurant not open for dinner. No compendium so no suggestions of local places. Worst pillows and mattress ever had in accommodation. Room was clean & apartment like. Kids charged as adults so for the price I will stay more in town next time

Dear Kristyg499, thank you for your review comments. We are sorry to learn you did not enjoy a fully satisfying stay. Whilst an onsite dinner restaurant is not one of our service offerings we can assist with delivery ordering from upwards of 50 restaurants who can deliver meals within 30 - 60 minutes. Please kindly note we promote an in-room digital compendium that lists nearby dining options and regret you seem to have missed reading it. We are sorry and sincerely regret that the pillows and mattress were not to your personal preference, guest comfort is important to us and we can often find solutions when made aware. Please note that children under 12 can stay free in existing bedding according to room type booked. If choosing to again stay in Geelong please do not hesitate to contact us so we can provide a personalised stay in accordance with your wants.

Reviewed 4 July 2023 via mobile

We stayed here during the school holidays as a family to take the kids to the Winter Glow show that was on in Geelong. Room was pretty good. We had room 27. Was upstairs. Had everything we needed. Beds were comfy. The heater control was quite hard to use as in the control buttons were hard to push to get the temp setting to move up and down. The heater is self was super loud! You’d be asleep and all of a sudden it would kick in and would wake everyone. Apart from that was a great stay. Lady at reception was quite nice and the guy we passed a couple times was very friendly also. We would coke back. Thanks for a great stay!

Staff were amazing. Big rooms, clean, comfy bed. Perfect location for our conference and accessible for all. Our booking was complex for a few reasons but staff managed it wonderfully. Nothing was too much effort.
