We r njoyed our stay again at R Hotel Geelong. Our one bedroom apartment was well located and easily accessed. Well appointed with everything required for a self catering accommodation. The apartment was quiet and very comfortable. Parking available on site for small fee or on the street. We can highly recommend the R Hotel for a short or long stay.

Good Afternoon Thank you for your recent review. It is disappointing that we did not meet your expectations.

The property is excellent, reception staff more than helpful - however, advertised as a serviced apartment... we only seen the cleaning staff once in 4 days, no fresh towels in this time - had to get our own toilet paper, milk and tea from reception, as we ran out and as there was no visit from the housekeeping staff to restock.

Good Afternoon Greg, Thank you for your review which we greatly appreciate. Please accept our apologies for the cleaning issue, rest assured we a fully service apartment and it seems the standard was dropped during your stay. We would appreciate if you could contact the manager to discuss so that we can understand which apartment you where in so that we can investigate the issue with the Executive Housekeeper.

Staffs are welcoming at checkin. The rooms are also very neat and tidy. The rooms are fully furnished with everything you need. Even My 5 years old daughter love the room and didn’t wanted to go home.
