Went for a work function in geelong. We called 2 weeks prior and spoke about early check in then the day before we called to confirm and we’re told there was no such thing as early check in. The man from the office was never there,so the reception was closed most of the time.

Property is close to the water and restuarants, location is great. Its a basic motel, could do we a bit of an update but comfortable and clean. Shower runs cold if you don't get in first thing in the morning, and smoking is allowed on the balcony which gets into your room if your neighbour smokes

Good location and the staff were friendly helpful and welcoming. The room was very small. It was also full of mosquitoes. The shower pressure was pretty ordinary. External areas of the property are very old. Don’t feel we got value for what we paid.
