It was ok. The light fittings over the bed was dangerous as the switch was almost falling out. The bed cover had a large stain on it. Generally a little rundown some basic maintenance could be performed, e.g. a touch of paint around the room. Not really worth the rate they charge.

Room was spacious with ample storage space. Found a dead huntsman in the room. Bathroom was smaller than expected. Room also smelt dusty and caused hay fever to flare up. Overall was fine for one night stay.

The rooms are very dusty. No windows in the room for some ventilation which made us keep the door open most of the time. Due to this our privacy was very much disturbed. I ended up sneezing all the time due to dust in the room. Not very happy about this place

We found this hotel fantastic for the price over easter. The bar and bistro is 50 meters from your room which is really convenient. We had one too many $10 cocktails & a delicious pizza while we watched the footy on the big screen. The room was very basic but the bed was super comfy. Please invest in an exhaust fan for the bathroom. The bar fridge wasn't cold. They also have a pool on site. Probably not a great place for kids as the noise travels between rooms and the pokie venue is open until 4am, so you hear cars coming at all hours. Staff were super lovley. We enjoyed out time in Geelong.

I liked the interconnecting room, but didn’t like that I had to call to get the in between door unlocked, they didn’t offer when I checked in. The spa had no water and the pool wasn’t a great space, thought I was invading someone’s back yard. The noisy emptying of bottles into a bin before 7am and paper thin walls - I could hear my neighbour use the toilet. The restaurant was good, but a bit $$$
