I stayed here overnight and was satisfied with the room and service. I found the location a little strange ( as it is an older hotel, but it is not really close to the main shopping or the bay) but I guess it was built there for a reason. All staff were welcoming and friendly (whether in the bar or...

Needed a place to stay after car issues was able to check in after 11 less than 20 minutes after booking on expedia. Large, comfortable rooms, $18 a night for parking is a bit much but there is free on street parking if you're lucky. In room entertainment system a little clunky to use but overall good service.

We travelled to Geelong to watch the might Cats play and whilst we were there we stayed 2 nights at the Mercure Geelong. It was fantastic, would recommend it to anyone. We originally booked one room with two queen beds via wotif.com. We got an absolute bargin! During the quick check in process, one of the kids asked the man...

Very old dated hotel. Our room was extremely gloomy and musty smelling. We would not return to this hotel, it needs a lot of work and money spent at it to bring it up to standard. We would not recommend.

We enjoyed our stay here, if only the weather was as good. Great location a few minutes walk from the centre of Geelong with its restaurants, shops, cinema etc perfect for a short or long stay. Open air car parking at $18 is in line with most big city hotels but if you are happy to take a chance there...
