I absolutely enjoyed my stay at the Devlin Apartments. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. The Executive Spa room was amazing. There was an incredible spa bath in the room, a very comfy king sized bed and great amenities. Had a beautiful view and was located in such a good part of Geelong. ...
Hotel was nice with friendly staff. Bed was horrible one side had a lean that felt like I’d roll out and room was only superficially clean. Very dusty on things and grubby floor in areas that may be harder to reach. Overall though was ok.
Much nicer than a hotel with plenty of room for 2 people. The kitchen was small but all you need for a short stay
