Better than a hotel - a home away from home! ”

Spa bath, serenity, staff

I searched high and low for accommodation that was going to be affordable but slightly high end for our short stay in Geelong and I'm pleased to have found just that. On a previous trip we had stayed at a beautiful apartment in the centre of town, but which cost us double than a stay at the tourist park. I booked one of the spa units and it was so much better than I had imagined it would be. The cabin was neat, tidy and modern looking and had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare our own meals. The spa itself was huge so we took advantage of that and had a beautiful spa every night of our stay (may not be an ideal set up for the elderly due to the height of it and having to get in it to use the shower also, but for a young couple it was perfect). Staff kept to themselves but were extremely helpful when we needed them. The location of the park was also good, only a short drive to the centre of town and set back far enough away from the road which made for a peaceful night sleep. The only thing I would fault it on was the bed, it was quite lumpy and uncomfortable, but this was minor and although not my ideal bed it may be alright for some. I will definitely rebook one of the cabins in the park when I return to Geelong. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Impressed”

I am really pleased with booking this place. I like the layout and is surprise to find heating pad on the queen bed too. All kitchen utensils are new and clean and you have everything that you need. The only complain is I can't find it on google map. When I use the google gps, it leads me to another location nearby. The name "Discovery Park" is also not clearly displayed. I think it was shown as Kiewa View and then you see a little vertical banner that has the name Discovery Park, but when there's no wind blowing and when the banner collapse, there's no way to see it clearly. I hope the management can improve on that. Other than that, I like this place and it's definitely value for money.

Had a great time staying”

I stayed in the spa cabin and it was a great experience! I was running late with schedule for the check in time, and they actually contacted me before check in closing time to let me know that they will store the key in safe place. It was great that I did not have to rush to check in. The whole cabin was very clean, had all the utilities and utencils that you would need for the stay. The whole bathtub was clean, spa was working beautifully. Bed had electric blanket working well. Gas stove, oven and fridges all working in good condition. Washing machine and dryer in the easy walking distance was working well. Would happily stay again if I get to come to Geelong again!

Clean, good quality materials, good location for multiple interests

expecting to be a little later then 19.00 (reception closing time) we called and heard about the 'after hours' arrangement - which runs very smoothly. in our small but cosy cabin everything needed was available for cooking our late diner; with surprisingly good quality pans! it was nice and quiet during the nights and the days we were away to the coast; also a stroll along the river in front of the park and geelong are worth it though! overall we had a great stay in a clean cosy cabin with everthing you need.

Geelong Stopover”

We were travelling and stayed in Geelong for 10 days. The cabin we had was very spacious and very clean. Overall it was very comfortable although the bed was not that great. The only down side was visiting tradies during the week. On our second week there were a bunch in the next cabin who sat on the patio and got drunk and the more they drunk the louder they got, so be warned if staying for a week and you have young kids.

Our visit was out of season but there were many cabins in use testifying to the site's popularity. It is a convenient drive from the centre and main attractions of Geelong.

Great Little Holiday Park~ Would like to stay here again ~”

When we arrived at the park 5 minutes after 5 p.m. & the staffs had already off work, but they kindly leave our cabin keys in an envelope in front of the reception entrance. The cabin we booked was a 2 room unit which can accommodate 6 persons in it, and the laundry room is just next door so i think it's great for travelers who enjoy DIY everything during trip. It's a nice little holiday park which my wife likes the home feel ambience, we drove by to the Coles Supermarket which is just 5 minutes away to buy some foods & cook for dinner, kitchen facilities were complete enough, just that the knife was quite blunt. Also the A/C in the living room can act as heater but it was still cold in the bedroom. Overall very satisfied to this venue, Great Location facing a river park, Great Cleanliness, Great Warm Smile from the reception staffs during checkout. Would definitely stay here again in future !!
