What Our Clients say…

Great location, across the road from a supermarket, close to family bistro next door. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Room was very clean and had everything you need overnight. Would recommend to friends or anyone looking for an overnight stop for the friendly staff alone who were happy to help in any way and for the location with a few shops so close by. Nice walk into Geelong CBD and to Geelong train station. Will definitely stay there again. Thanks Darren and the rest of the staff!

Lovely clean motel with very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are spacious enough and well equipped with hair dryer, iron & ironing board, tea & coffee. Lovely fresh milk for our cuppa on arrival. Also a very quiet motel. Hotel next door with great meals and supermarket across the road. Highly recommended.

The bed was the best so comfortable, the owners were so friendly and helpful. I would stay at this motel anytime again in the future and would recommend it to anyone for a relaxing stay, it is located at the back of the Great Western Hotel who have a varied menu and it is accessible from a gateway in the motel no need walk around the perimeter of the grounds, the 4 of us were in Geelong attending a bowling Country Week for ladies and the atmosphere at the motel made for a very pleasant stay

Loved kids separate room with own TV , cooking facilities, separate toilet from bathroom.
