Sabine KayJanuary 2023

Incredible experience! Lovely, spacious rooms with excellent coffee/tea selections. Very clean and service was impeccable.

Samantha HinkleApril 2023

Staying for work and what a great experience. A large group of the company were staying for a conference and they were so ready for us. We had a very limited time in the morning to park and walk to the conference. The reception team was prepared, not only had parking ready to go but had my room ready for early check in. Great shower pressure, clean and trendy. Would stay again for work or leisure

Caitlin Clifton August 2023

Excellent location. The apartment was clean, modern and well appointed. Easy check in and out. Great location. Highly recommended.

Michael PhippsOctober 2023

Made a last-minute direct booking. From my first contact over the phone to our last contact, checking out, the staff were fantastic. Very helpful, great price. Very clean rooms and so comfortable, beds, linen, pillows, we're amazing. Quiet rooms, views of the city, free parking, and a late checkout when booking direct. On-site coffee shop with good coffee. Close to all amenities within walking distance (5 minutes). Highly recommend and definitely will stay again when we are next in Geelong. Thank you to all the staff.

Michelle MidgleyFebruary 2024

We had a lovely stay at R Hotel. We spent 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment and we couldn't fault our stay. The apartment was modern, clean and spacious. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and dryer. We were spoilt with 2 TVs in our room, with Foxtel included.Central location, walking distance to restaurants, the beach and the local Westfield. We look forward to coming back!

AmandaAugust 2022

Absolutely terrific. Both Rebecca and Melissa displayed service on par with some of the top 5 star hotels in the world. They were so accommodating and helpful, providing service alongside a friendly smile the whole stay. I am so pleased and wanted to say a huge thank you. Room was spacious, car-parking was excellent, and cafe was also good. Clean and modern. Again Melissa and Rebecca am very grateful for your level of service and care.

Sam StraussNovember 2022

Really friendly and helpful staff that were very knowledgeable of the local area offering advice on a variety of food options nearby. Ended up going out for Indian which was walking distance and amazing. The hotel has a very city meets country feel with people remembering who you were that makes you feel special. Oh, last point… the bottle shop is literally across the road which was a huge bonus.

David JudgeOctober 2022

Our family recently had such a beautiful experience staying at the R Hotel. We stayed under very difficult circumstances to be close to Geelong Hospital and the staff could not have been more accommodating and kind. The rooms are also beautiful, perfectly appointed with great views of Geelong. We are so grateful to Eve and the whole team for their warmth and hospitality

Paul & Kate DunstoneNovember 2022

The R Hotel is a must stay in Geelong. The hotel is extremely well presented with excellent staff. Rooms are well appointed & spacious with great bathrooms. First class beds ensure a great nights sleep. Cafe in the morning is a must with excellent offerings and exceptional staff. Highly recommend!

David PrattJanuary 2023

So impressed! Great atmosphere and amazing friendly staff. Love this hotel can’t wait to tell friends

Gail VolfsbergsAugust 2022

Great location. Our room was on 6th floor, spotlessly clean with a balcony and a view of the sea. Secure parking. Check in and out was efficient. No complaints at all - quiet overnight. Lovely to stroll along the beach - everything is easily walkable.

Sue JFebruary 2022

R Hotel is quite new, giving it an easy advantage over competitors. We booked three rooms (2 x queen, 1 x 1br apartment - all on Level 5) and all three parties were impressed. My room was spacious and comfortable, the bed was exquisite, lovely view from the patio and all the expected hotel room offerings at hand.

KstarMelbourneApril 2022

I stayed here for 7 days. Well-designed apartment/hotel. Very comfortable bed. I love the espressotoria machine. One of the best accommodation I stayed at.

Helena DavisFebruary 2022

Clean, modern and a comfortable bed! The one bedroom apartment we got was VERY spacious and our 18 months old loved running around. We ended up extending our stay 😀 Kudos to the ladies at the cafe for managing everything well on the busy Melbourne Cup day! Great food too A huge thank you to all the wonderful staff!

Buddhini MendisNovember 2022

 From the lovely receptionists who checked me in, gave me suggestions for amazing local restaurants and answered my questions, to the spacious rooms, comfortable beds and the incredible view, R Hotel has a customer for life! Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Mark GravinaApril 2022

We recently stayed at the R Hotel for our mini Baby-moon and could not fault the room, views, facilities, location or friendly staff. We have stayed at many places in Geelong and this was by far the best experience we have had. Highly recommended and will be back.

Sean MaplebackFebruary 2022

It really exceeded my expectations. The room was lovely and comfortable, very well-equipped with all the utilities you may need (cooking utensils, microwave, oven, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer etc). Got a room with the view overlooking the park, definitely worth it and super happy with our choice to stay there. Will return whenever in Geelong for sure!

ShaffiraFebruary 2022

Had a fabulous 2 night stay in a water front apartment on the 9th floor. Quality accommodation from comfort, convenience, standard of fittings and staff. The breakfast on the go was a nice touch and certainly enjoyed by us. Would highly recommend and love to stay again!

Rhonda BassettFebruary 2022

We have just come home from our 2 day stay away and can’t praise the R Hotel enough. In a good location overlooking the beach if you are on the right side of the building. Close to shops, eateries, pubs and the beach. We stayed in a 2 Bedroom Apartment and were extremely happy with the layout and furniture. At night the Ferris wheel and boats light were our view whilst enjoying drinks on our balcony. Well done and we hope to be back!

Rose ConnartyFebruary 2022

We booked a 2 Bedroom Apartment and we were blown away by the standard of fittings, the size, the view of Corio Bay and the amenitie. A 10 out of 10 score from multi round the world travellers. Well done R!

Benito AndersoniFebruary 2022

Great stay with fantastic rooms, welcoming and helpful staff, convenient location. Definitely one of the best hotels in Geelong.

Dan TobyDecember 2021

Fabulous staff are so helpful, nothing is to much trouble, best customer service, we are here for 6 nights for our 45th wedding anniversary, we will be back.

Sally CarwoodNovember 2021

My husband and I had a delightful two night stay at the R Hotel recently. From the moment we walked in all the staff were so friendly and attentive. The hotel is immaculately presented, and the rooms are beautiful. The hotel is in the perfect position, a very short walk to Eastern Beach and Westfield shopping centre just around the corner. This will be our ‘go to’ accommodation every time we visit Geelong from now on. We loved it!

GloriaNovember 2021

We stayed for the weekend and found the property very clean, professionally run and with good amenities. Would recommend this property especially if you need to be centrally located. Undercover parking was a bonus.

Tripadvisor ReviewOctober 2021

Well this is what a hotel is supposed to be like! Friendly staff, who are there to help make your stay more enjoyable. Fresh rooms; nice and clean. We will be back!

NicholasApril 2021

Geelong’s best accommodation I’d say. Brand new hotel & they’ve done a great job. Professional staff, very comfy king bed, great sofa & all the Foxtel channels! Had breakfast downstairs in the cafe & it was buzzing, again with very good staff & nice food & coffee. We will stay again for sure!

SteveMay 2021

Truly gorgeous staff and rooms. Magnificent hotel with large, new rooms, big bathrooms, great showers, big comfortable beds, lovely furniture & great amenities. Coffee, fridge, stove etc all you could need. Staff are so willing to help & go well & truly above & beyond.

PerchanceMay 2021

We were so impressed with the hotel and the quality of the rooms and furnishings and were even more blown away by the level of service you and your team showed us. We stay at a lot of hotels around Australia and your team were a 10/10. They are refined, friendly, knowledgable and made us feel so at home every time we walked in and out of the property. We have come back raving to our team and friends about the whole experience and we will definitely be back soon for another stay. Thanks so much again, you are incredible at what you do!
