The Novotel Geelong would have the be one of the better hotels in Geelong CBD.
The hotel is located at the bottom of Geelong CBD, opposite the waterfront, and surrounded by cafes, restaurants, and the Geelong Yacht Club.
The Port Phillip ferry (Geelong/Melbourne bound ferry) is located across the road, and the hotel is also close to the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast and other attractions.
We booked a standard king-size room with a balcony, and had quite nice views of the waterfront, although our room wasn't looking directly at the waterfront! Our room was spacious considering it was a standard size room.
Given the hotel's location, there was minimal noise at night, the bed and pillows were comfortable, the room was fresh and clean, and customer service was very good, and check-out was very quick. Valet parking is available and overnight parking is around $27 per night (at least at the time of our reservation)!
If it necessitated us staying at a hotel in Geelong again, we would definitely return to the Novotel Geelong.More
