        Great Location - No Frills Accomodation”

        I live an hour away from this property and was headed down to Kardinia Park for a game. Thought instead of catching the Vline up on a 42 degree day i could head down to the beach for the day before hand, check in and walk 200m to the ground when ready. Hassle free, no frills accommodation. Staff are very friendly. No fuss, get you to your room in a timely manner and non-intrusive.

        bit of a hike from the station (South Geelong), but a peaceful friendly place with 2 pubs nearby, an excellent fish and chip shop, a 7/11 and various eateries. facilities include a microwave, a toaster plates, cutlery and a separate toilet from bathroom.

        Great staff, Great facilities and Great prices.

        On arrival at the hotel I was greeted by the female owner who was FANTASTIC! I had previously spoken to family members who were working at the hotel that were also great. When arriving cheaking in was simple and her attitude was so postive and inviting! Straight away she directed us to the closest food outlets and filled us in on events happening in the town as it was new years eve.

        Overflowing with disappointment”

        Great location and super friendly staff, sadly that's where our good experience ended. The room was very dated, furniture in desperate need of replacement. TV had no remote, couch was torn to shreds, tiles coming off bathroom wall, spiders and spider webs everywhere, shower didn't work and we had to get it replaced to shower. Was told hair dryer was available in rooms, must have been invisible. Cold night, no electric blanket or extra blankets in room, only the heater which we had to put on after being at a cold outdoor concert. Beds only had a threadbare blanket & coverlet. Car parking was ridiculous, was told to park outside a different room as ours had a rubbish skip in it, when we got back, 2 4wd vehicles were over the lines of our park so had to park on the side of a 4 lane highway which we were not impressed about as bays just too small. Room very very noisy. Majorly overpriced for how run down it was. Unfortunately have zero intentions of ever going back.

        Old appliances and the fridge was tiny and hadn’t been defrosted in months! Very very poor lighting. Definitely not a place for a stay longer than 1 night. 30 years ago it would have been passable, but now it’s old and tired. Look elsewhere for more dollars more and get into this decade.

        Not bad, expected a little more”

        Overall the place was neat and tidy, yet at over $100 per night I personally had a slightly higher expectation. The facilities, though clean, are definitely dated. There was a jacket hanging on the back of the front door from a previous guest, which suggests the door is not closed when the room is cleaned, even between guests. If this is missed, what else is missed? The airconditioning unit is not well placed to suitably warm the room, and it was indeed quite cold on the first night though it ran on high and as warm as possible. After that I used the extra blanket and more clothing.

        comfort of bed, location, strong shower head.

        Overall sufficient. The bed was super comfortable and queen suitable for heavier couples (no dip in middle). Facilities VERY outdated. TV, aircon, heater, at least 20 years old. Shower very retro but very well fitted and in good condition (think Nonna's house). The remainder of the room felt small and dark. Towels smelt of bleach (not in a good way). Ashtrays directly under signs that say "thank you for not smoking". Overall it was good enough for a brief stay but definitely not fancy if that's what you are looking for. Friendly staff and good location. Close to town and the "Paris" end of Packington so plenty options for dining and coffee.
