Nice rooms and helpful staff in not the only positive elements of staying in Novotel hotels. It’s about the support and standard of care, no matter where in the world I travel.

Anonymous Friends - 20/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Upon check in, we were not told about booking for the pool, or that we needed to call down to ask for the room to be cleaned. The staff at breakfast, aside from Wednesday when we were checking out, staff seemed a little rude. Food was amazing. Would have been nice if the car was parked under a cover or shelter, considering it was $27 a night for parking. The room was lovely and we did request a corner room with bay view and the staff were very friendly and helpful to make this happen. Overall was a great trip just a few little issues which could have made it amazing

Helpful staff. Great hotel.

Aussie-go 18/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

With a warm, efficient and friendly welcome, we found our room. It was just as requested. All COVID safe precautions were taken and we felt very secure. We had a 2 night stay which gave us plenty of time to explore the town and surrounding attractions. It is such a convenient location. Having meals overlooking the beach was a highlight. The bed was so comfortable and amenities well catered. All staff were very helpful and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

Jennifer B. Couples - 17/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our room was very nice but we were dissapointed with the restaurant and meal we had on the Friday night. It was a very poor menu and the decor was not as advertised as it looked lovely on the website but in fact it was a very plain and uninviting. The meal was very average. I was dissapointed because it was our 20th wedding anniversary and I was looking forward to a nice stay. The decor of the restaurant needs a major facelift with some plants and table settings to enhance the experience . The staff were very nice we could not fault the service

Jo W. Couples - 17/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Felt safe with good hygiene practices and social distancing adhered to by all staff. Check in was more onerous bust staff are well versed in protocols and requirements My recommendation is to book the restaurant if you want to eat there in advance of your stay. We were unable to eat in the restaurant due to being booked out at check in. Apart from that we had a comfortable stay overnight

The hotel was well run and front of house were excellent.

Daniel Families - 17/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The experience was good with the exception that we weren’t aware that due to COVID, we needed to inform reception when house keeping could clean our room. We should have been informed of this requirement during check in. I was only informed of this when I went down to reception at 5pm following our first night in Novotel to ask why our room wasn’t cleaned during the day.

Reaps 17/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

Upon arrival we were greeted with smiling faces with a fairly simple check-in with Covid in mind. The foyer area was well presented with the bar and restaurant located just off to the left. Our room was ideal and had views of the Ferris wheel along with bay view across to Melbourne. The room was comfortable as well as the bed. Bathroom had been well maintained. We had breakfast at the restaurant which was excellent. Check-out was a bit hectic, though once again I put a lot of those issues on the Covid situation. Highly recommend with such great views and location along with the friendly staff whom do what they can to make your stay ideal. Looking forward to returning when chance arises again

josepedroscarpa Family - 17/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

the staff was excellent they really went above and beyond to make us fell confortable and safe. everything was very clean and all the safety measures were in place. As platinum accor plus member, usually we receive a welcome gift (chocolates or cookies) it didn't happen that time but was a good surprise to have complementary valet parking during the stay. About the hotel is very clean great location. fitness center needs some attention (more machines and upgrading) open earlier in my opinion. generally was fantastic

Very friendly and great hotel to stay in Geelong

Terence G. Couples - 16/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

After lockdown for months in Melbourne and once the rings of steel in Regional Victoria were opened, we decided to make a trip to Geelong and stayed at Novotel Geelong. It was a very positive experience for us as the staff were very friendly and the hotel is located in the best part of Geelong, right on the waterfront. We have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to everyone, and we will certainly stay in Novotel again in our future visit.

T &. K. L. Couples - 16/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had previously seen the Novotel on other trips to Geelong, so this time we thought we'd give it a go. It was well worth it with easy check-in and nice and spacious room. The view from the room was great and had views of the wheel and Melbourne skyline. We had breakfast and the staff were again great and attentive, no issues and always inquiring if anything further was needed. Highly recommend and we will be staying again when able.

Most staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant. The fridges in the rooms are not good enough and don't get things cold even after 24 hours of trying. Reception eventually found us an Esky and provided plenty of ice.

The Geelong Novotel is a terrific place to stay. It is well located overlooking the ocean bay near Eastern beach and is short walk to the general shopping area and cafes around that precinct. Great staff who are all very warm and inviting and very accommodating to the needs of their visitors and hotel guests. Rooms are fabulous, well payed out with just the right amount of flair and fashion with everything you need and expect in a nice room. The food was excellent and a good amount of choice of food on the menu. I can’t fault any part of my stay whilst at the Novotel Geelong.
