Once a haven for gold rush prospectors and sailors searching for repose and entertainment, this 168 year old heritage hotel, now known as the The R Hotel commences a new journey as an elegant respectful, luxury apartment hotel development.


This heritage hotel has been carefully rejuvenated and modernised to compliment a contemporary yet elegant nine level addition. It has been designed to allow the historical hotel the prominence it deserves, whilst offering a luxury destination in Geelong.


The R Hotel comprises 110 individually owned and managed residential apartments consisting of 1 and 2 bedrooms as well as dog friendly loft apartments. A ground floor café, reception and lobby with car parking and 2 lifts provides excellent access and security.


Great effort was taken in designing the building for energy efficiency, achieving a 6-7 Energy Star Rating, with extensive solar panel roofing
and treated glazing for insulation and sound proofing.  EV Charging stations feature.  In an unparalleled location on the edge Geelong’s CBD, the R Hotel is a short stroll to the Waterfront Cafes and Eastern Beach
