    Comfortable room in convenient location”

    Comfortable & clean

    this hotel is not going to win any awards. the exterior is rather drab and it has no "welcoming" features like garden, pool, bar, restaurant, etc. but the location is good (if you don't want to stay in the centre of geelong) and the beds are comfortable. also surprisingly quiet for a motel on a main road. staff were pleasant and welcoming. one downside was the excessive use of deodoriser in the room which took quite a while to clear. a very basic motel but could suit someone who wants a triple room or just needs somewhere to sleep.

    Position, to where we needed to go. Friendliness of staff. Room comfort.

    Really enjoyed our stay. Staff were very friendly. Room was very clean, a credit to the cleaners. Although it was on a main road, it was still quiet to the road noise. It was only a one night stay but slept like a baby. Very happy with our stay and would definitely return if we are ever in the area.
