    Pro’s were it was very central to the beach and attractions. We came by train and could walk easily to the address in 10 minutes. Beach was only 10 minutes away walking as was the pier and wool museum. Our room shared a bathroom with other guests but it was never a problem. Breakfast was nice and not rushed. Lovely place.

    A lovely place. Very convenient to the CBD of Geelong and about a 10 minute walk from the train station, even with luggage and it's an almost entirely flat walk. Comfortable rooms. Clean bathrooms and soft towels. Occasionally the heating was a bit cool and at other times a bit too warm but still okay. Extra pillows available in the rooms. A comfortable lounge with lots of DVD's if you want to stay in and relax. There is a lovely sheltered garden with tables and chairs. Parking is available on-site. It is also possible to do laundry on-site.

    The building and surrounds - the location - the staff (not necessarily in that order!)

    We initially booked as a couple, then needed an extra bed. The owner Paul was more than obliging and updated our room to accommodate the extra person. The house was so beautiful. We felt so comfortable and at home and the breakfast was leisurely. We will definitely stay there if we return to Geelong.
