Awesome owners booked us in late and we ended up staying 2 nights because of wonderfulness of the place. Pool out the back and a beautiful garden to relax in the well. The unit was modern and clean and great. Also a great feature is the sphinx pub over the road which is in walking distance.

Stayed here only one night. We had a room with a queen bed and a single bed. Very comfortable. The room seemed like it could do with an update in the wardrobe but apart from that it was clean and nice.

We stayed at Parkwoord for 2 nights. Just needed a cheap couple of days away. It was great. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable. They serviced our room daily. The best part of the stay was the pool and outdoor area. I had my two children with me and it was good especially in the evening...

It is always a pleasure to stay at this great little hideaway: Geoff and Katrina are lovely welcoming hosts. The ground-floor motel rooms have a door directly out into a lovely garden, where if you've packed your own makings, Geoff will crank up the pool-side BBQ for you. We have stayed here several times when in Geelong and wouldn't think...

We stayed for one night in a 3 bedroom house at the start of our Great Ocean Road drive. Check in was super fast! The house is cozy, very clean and my kids enjoyed our stay there. We parked out rented vehicles right in front of the house. It is about 5 mins drive to restaurants and shops. Our flight...

A warm welcome and helpful advice re local attractions and dining options nearby. Our room was clean and comfortable but a little tired in some respects i.e. the cracked hand basin in the bathroom. However for one or two nights and for the price it was just fine and served us well. Breakfast was included and simple but adequate especially...
