    A lovely place. Very convenient to the CBD of Geelong and about a 10 minute walk from the train station, even with luggage and it's an almost entirely flat walk. Comfortable rooms. Clean bathrooms and soft towels. Occasionally the heating was a bit cool and at other times a bit too warm but still okay. Extra pillows available in the rooms. A comfortable lounge with lots of DVD's if you want to stay in and relax. There is a lovely sheltered garden with tables and chairs. Parking is available on-site. It is also possible to do laundry on-site.

    Best place to B&B in Geelong”

    The building and surrounds - the location - the staff (not necessarily in that order!)

    We initially booked as a couple, then needed an extra bed. The owner Paul was more than obliging and updated our room to accommodate the extra person. The house was so beautiful. We felt so comfortable and at home and the breakfast was leisurely. We will definitely stay there if we return to Geelong.

    Overnight in Geelong's Gatehouse on Ryrie.”

    This is a beautiful old house in a very central location, however the age of the house was the reason for the creaking sounds throughout the night and the location meant the the nearby nightclub could be heard. Unfortunately the description of the breakfast was more elaborate than what was available. These points aside we still had a lovely overnight stay in Geelong.

    The size of the rooms, the comfortable homelike quality, the location

    We spent a couple of nights recently at the Gatehouse and it was great, we were upgraded immediately although we thought the original room was fine and great value so we were very happy to receive the new situation which included an equipped kitchen and our own bathroom. This was all excellent. The hotel also has an immense collection of DVDs if you don't feel like going out and even a lounge with some guitars books and an organ! Definitely an excellent stay and will be happy to return.

    The Gatehouse was very good value for the money. My room was huge and the bed was really comfortable. The shared bathroom didn't bother me as there was only one other guest on the top floor and we didn't cross paths during my stay so I always had the bathroom to myself. It was a great bathroom too!

    Different to what I expected”

    Central location, clean & a beautiful building

    Whilst I was happy with the accommodation, it was not at all as Agoda advertised. The beautiful room at a B & B was just a bed. The glimpse of the ensuite was not at all what I experienced! There was a bathroom down the hall and the first room shown to me was not the double I had signed up for but two single beds. The man was very helpful and moved me to a room with a double bed, however I fell the Gatehouse was totally misrepresented by Agoda and I found myself wishing I had booked with the hotel on wotif instead. It ws cheaper & I know I can trust them!!

    Pro’s were it was very central to the beach and attractions. We came by train and could walk easily to the address in 10 minutes. Beach was only 10 minutes away walking as was the pier and wool museum. Our room shared a bathroom with other guests but it was never a problem. Breakfast was nice and not rushed. Lovely place.

    Very conveniently located to CBD, restaurants and shopping - tourist attractions as well. More important for me than most is a comfortable bed and pillows - in this case the bed was quite hard so had a few restless nights. Had the mattress been of a higher quality and softer I would have given an "excellent" review and highly recommended because everything else was near perfect.

    Staying in a museum ”

    A lovely place, looking like somewhere out of the early 20th century with most of the original settings. Sadly the bathroom had been modernised. Sadder still, the mattresses had not. I really loved it though. So much better than a dreary motel room. There's a gorgeous dinning room and a well stocked living room that would have been perfect for an extended stay. My stay was short so I did not meet the manager but he was very helpful and my room was set up to welcome me when I arrived. A great place and great value if there's a special on.
