The location was great - close to restaurants and the beach. My main complaint was that the air-conditioning in the master bedroom didn't work. Also it was quite noisy during the night - we could hear the pedestrian crossing noises and motorbikes and cars travelling fast along the esplanade.

Thanks for your review. As these apartments are all privately owned, they all have individual air conditioning systems. We endeavour to take this into consideration and provide fans for each of the bedrooms if fully ducted is not available. The noise factor is out of our control especially during the summer nights when the waterfront area is busy, and the proximity is in the central Geelong area. Our location is second to none on the waterfront, with everything within walking distance. Thanks again.

Thanks for your response, the access to the Novotel's pool and gym area is a definite plus for us. Secure parking is part of the accommodation package , which in some central areas isn't included.

It was all excellent , other than when we booked we were under the impression we were getting a water view room of the bay.

Listed as The Waterfront Apartments, and located in the waterfront precinct. However, not all of our apartments have a view of the ocean. We have tried to clearly state views available, both on our website and any other literature available. Anyway glad you enjoyed your stay.

Jenni was so lovely, helpful and accomodating of our last minite requests. Location was perfect... hop skip and jump from everything. Only negatives were balcony floor was quite dusty on arrival and being on the first floor it was a bit noisy as we could hear every conversation as people walked past. Overall..pleasant and comfortable accomodation.

Thanks for your review - always hard staying on the lower levels with street and people noise, especially on beautiful weekend weather days. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Department was nice roomie better than expected but I was very disappointed not to get oceanview what I got was a brick wall however it did state they couldn’t guarantee the room so I would’ve expected some ocean views regardless because wotif already paid up front I didn’t have any bargaining chips, so seven days looking at a brick wall oh there was a couple of trees and a power pole

Thanks for your feedback. On all of our room information we give an overview of the room and its location in relation to views. We are located in the Geelong Waterfront precinct and unfortunately all of the rooms do not have ocean views, we try our best to convey this information on any of our booking sites.

Appartments was spacious but in need of a few repairs. The lift was out of order for some of our stay meaning a climb of 5 flights of stairs. Ok if you want to keep fit. Comfy bed and very quiet considering the appartments faced a busy intersection. Great location to CDB meant we were able to leave the car in the secure underground parking our entire stay and walk everywhere..

Thanks - yes the issues of the lifts was a problem, however we are working with the Building Manager to have this rectified asap. We appreciate having to traverse stairs. We have airtight apartments, so the noise level is very minimul considering the CBD location, so we are very lucky in that aspect. Appreciate you comments & thanks.

Beautiful waterfront apartment.

Location: Close to restaurants, shopping, beach and parks. Only a 20 minute walk to the footy. Didn't need the car all weekend.
We had a great weekend. Great view across the bay and the night view with the lights was spectacular. Loved our stay.

Really pleased you enjoyed the bay views and Geelong CBD. The footy ground is an easy walk, no stress - so the car stays safe at the Apartment Building. Great for Cats & AFL supporters. Beautiful vista of the bay day and night. Thanks for your comments - come again to visit our beautiful city.
