« Excellent Novotel »

As always the Novotel Geelong lived up to our expectations.Situated within walking distance of the CBD and across the street from the famous Geelong waterfront and close to many great eateries. The staff are the best of any hotel we have ever stayed at.

« Early Start »

We live 35 kms out of Geelong and had an early flight to Sydney. We had to pick up a person at 7.00am in Geelong. Hence the overnight stay at Novotel Geelong. When we arrived at 6.25am in the Foyer our car was waiting for us, and the Dining Room doors swung open punctually at 6.30 am. An adequate and calm breakfast set the tone for the day. Thank You, Novotel Staff.

« Quite nice, even for family - superior balcony room »

Decided to stay the long weekend in Geelong, mainly to catch up with family, but also to then check out the footy in Melbourne without dealing with Melb traffic. A very nice motel room with plenty of space for the rollaway required when you have 2 boys of age where both sleeping in a sofa bed is not feasible. Breakfast was the highlight of the stay, so make sure it is included in your room tariff. Pool is quite nice also, warm even in the beginning of winter.

Well positioned for visiting Geelong, good meals and accomodation at reasonless rates, staff were very pleasant and easy to deal with. Staff made our stay enjoyable. We were given an extended time for checking out that made it quite comfortable to achieve our objectives.

« NOVOTEL GEELONG WATERFRONT »

No Parking was a big issue. Was led to believe the hotel has secure parking, they don't. Valet parking elsewhere was offered @$25.00 per day!! Won't use that service had Cars damaged elsewhere, impossible to hold them responsible. Hotel was originally "The Sheraton" and purpose built without a car park, GCC should be condemned. Tried to make direct booking but reception person had poor English, booked online through commission agent, same price ($265 a night) and Hotel pays them 10%

« Relaxo Rancho by the Bay »

Great place to get away for a few days. Shame the weather wasn't good but at least the hotel made up for it. Breakfast was good, shame they would't brew me a cup of coffer from their coffee machine. They said it was extra cost on top of the $30.00 per head, so we used the instant coffee machine in the breakfast area. Aside from that the place was good.

« Only Accor Hotel in the Geelong Area now! »

Great bed, great food and nice view. Service friendly in all areas and quick room service. Had to call for many things which are usually supplied in other hotels " Accor member " related. Valet parking a bonus although $$. Too noisy near the street .Motorbikes, cars, horns, yelling. Woke up to my neighbors talking on their balcony .The hotel room doors need softer closing.The Eastern Beach Road at that end should be pedestrians only. Over all good .

« Good, but needs a little polish »

Located on the Geelong Waterfront, this hotel has a prime position and offers all of the services that you would expect from a Novotel hotel, however, the 'special' experience offered by this hotel did not live up to my expectations, and were not in line with the special offerings of this beautiful location. Some of the views from the rooms are spectacular, overlooking the Geelong Waterfront Marina and Eastern Beach, and there are several great restaurants, cafes, and bars right on the hotel's doorstep. The staff were very attentive and everything is in its place, however, this hotel has the opportunity to become a showcase hotel in the Novotel chain with a little polish and some thought put into providing an extra special experience for its guests.

« Extremely overpriced and tired. »

Stayed one night at a cost of $400 - in Geelong!!! Room was tired and very noisy. Carpet had major stain in it and the safe did not work. Outrageous cost for a room that would be lucky to be 3 star - can stay 5 star in centre most major metropolitan cities for that price. Then had to pay an additional $25 to park the car overnight (and $5 if you wanted a biscuit with your cup of tea). Won't be back and won't be going to any other Accor hotel after that experience.

Lovely hotel in a great location on the foreshore in Geelong which is just buzzing with cafes etc and amazing views across the bay, very good amenities and the rooms are spacious, bright and well equiped. The staff at the hotel reception friendly and efficient and the restaurant offering full breakfast buffet very good. Evening meals good variety and again very good and good service Will I stay there again yes

« Improved »

Staff attentiveness has improved since my last stay in August. Also, the rooms were much cleaner apart from under the bed. A nice touch from the hotel general manager was a personal welcome back. Unfortunately when we did stay there was construction occurring in a nearby street that began at about 1am in the morning.

« Very pleasantly surprised »

Extremely pleased with our three night stay at the Novotel Geelong. All the staff were particularly friendly and obliging especially in the restaurant. The delivery of our vehicle was prompt and courteous. The motel is situated in a great location and our room had an excellent view over the bay. The manager went out of his way to answer a query we raised ringing after we returned home with a favourable outcome.

« Friday night stay in Geelong »

Room booked direct noting anniversary and request good view of waterfront. Got a call offering an upgrade to front but at extra cost ( which we could have selected anyway on booking - so declined.) But we had also mentioned we had a friend who was also staying at the hotel and they were an Accor club member. When we arrived we ( like them) had been given the highest floor and room right near front if hotel with a lovely welcome card acknowledging our anniversary surrounded by rose petals. Nice touch. Very accommodating too with allowing us to park for a few hours near entrance in the Saturday after checkout. Good brekkie included.

« Perfect Base for Geelong and Melbourne »

Staying here was a delight. Views of the sea, access from the 3rd floor to shopping mall, excellent breakfast, and the kids enjoyed the pool. Just a short train ride to Melbourne, no need for a car and wonderful to return to such a relaxing location from Melbourne. Staff were attentive and looked for ways to help not waiting to be asked. Another Accor Winner, that ensures we will continue our membership for years to come.

« Novotel Geelong »

We arrived just after 3 pm, there was a small queue, but check in was quick and we were warmly welcomed and, as Accor Silver members, offered a welcoming drink at the bar. The room was spacious and very clean with a partial view over Corio Bay. The king bed was excellent, close to the best we have experienced in a hotel. The bathroom showed its age with shower over a very narrow bath, difficult to get into for people of my age, but we managed. There was a bit of noise from the adjacent balcony about 8 pm but it did not last long and we slept very well. Breakfast was good, although not quite as good as other Novotel properties we have visited, fresh fruit rather than canned peaches and apricots would be an improvement, eggs were great. The location of this hotel is simply superb, so much is within walking distance and the area is so civilized in every way. Overall a very good experience, great bed, friendly and efficient staff and a superb location.
