Fantastic location right on the front and easy walking to restaurants and shops. Apartment has everything you need and ours was in reasonable condition although we would not rate it as delux, furnishings and carpet a little run-down and in need of attention, carpet well stained but otherwise clean and tidy. No where near as luxurious as the website pictures....

Waterfront apartments were perfect for what I needed - self contained, clean, very well presented, spacious, quiet, free on-site parking, well appointed and close to everything including the water, restaurants, supermarket, local gyms and Deakin uni where I was working for the duration of my stay. Greg made my check in and out super easy and gave me a great...

The Waterfront Apartments are located in central Geelong, close to everything you want. The water front is great, plenty of restaurants and shopping. The views from the rooms are great and off street car park a bonus. I stayed there when the Cadell Evans cycling race was on, Greg & Jenni went out of their way to ensure my stay...

After an ominous start (we had an issue during our booking process, and I was unhappy with the response but had already made plans to stay for the long weekend) we were hesitant as to how our stay would be, given the booking experience and recent reviews. Luckily everything from check in onwards was great! Jenny was fantastic and showed...

In the time between booking our apartment, and actually commencing our stay, I re-checked the TripAdvisor reviews for Waterfront, and started to get alarmed at the recent trend of negative feedback. So when we landed at Waterfront I was honestly on higher alert. Well I needn't have been, and in fact, our stay was just excellent. The facility does not...

Just spend two weeks staying at The Waterfront Apartments Geelong. The business owners Kate and Jenny were fabulous to deal with. My apartment was clean, modern and was equipped with everything I needed. Highly recommend Geelong Bay Escapes, I will be back for another visit. Thank You Kate and Jenny for your great customer service.

“All size rooms available advise if you want views or quiet location.”
  • View from the balcony, being at the back the room was quiet and I could still see the bay.
