            Arrived at 10.30am realising it was way too early to get into our room,wrong,a no show meant we were able to move our belongings into our room straight away.Asked if they could organise a cab for us for our appointment no way,they dropped us into the centre of Geelong.What a start to our stay.Nothing was a problem.Our room was very comfortable and well equipped, would definitely stay at the Parkwood Motel again.A good value for money stay.

            The Parkwood Motel suited our needs for an overnight stay - it was disappointing to discover it would have been less expensive to book direct rather than through an agency.

            We had a very nice stay at this motel, it was very good value for money for the price. The only thing maybe they could have a toaster in the room and perhaps some cutlery but a very minor issue. Overall glad I chose to stay at the Parkwood.

            It was a nice location for me, although it is not in Geelong city centre (because I drove a car). The next best thing is Katherine, the owner there that makes me feel like I am welcomed there. She even wrote/suggests me a few restaurants nearby (Thai food and Asia food that might interest me). It was a nice stay because of her. Thanks Katherine!

            service, friendliness of staff, free laundry facilities

            Our stay was without any problems. The willingness of owners Katrina & Geoff to tend to any requests was beyond any we have encountered in all our travels. Nothing was too much trouble, from running us to the local shops, checking out dining facilities and hotel/clubs in the area and many other things made our stay so very enjoyable. The rooms were clean & comfortable and the surroundings pleasant. I would recommend this motel to all.

            Was surprised how huge the house was for the 3 bedroom apartment. Comes with own garden, porch for the car, outside dining and big living room/kitchen. Was a joy to stay in and we did some cooking ourselves. Lovely place and definitely will come back again to this lovely house.

            Well situated, close to The Sphinx hotel which has good meals which are reasonably priced. Rooms comfortable and clean, good service at the Motel. Nice pool, pity it was to cool for a swim. Close to shops in Shannon Avenue. Would like to rent one of there units which looked quite large and comfortable.

            Good basic motel for an overnight stay”

            Friendly staff, clean room, parking

            We arrived at the motel after 8pm following a short drive from Melbourne. Checked in was a breeze. We stayed in Apartment 3 which is located on the ground floor. If you have a lot of luggage, try asking for a unit on the ground floor as units on the first floor can only be reached via staircase. Room is basic but well maintained and clean. A microwave is also provided in the room but crockery is not provided. As the motel is located at a busy intersection, there was traffic noise. So for light sleeper, this might be a problem. For those who are driving, adequate parking facilities are available. The next day, we checked out before 7am and the reception was already open!

            Big and clean (3 bed rooms) and an extra bed at the living room area. The house has a big front yard which allows kids to run around. Since its a stand alone house you dun have to worry about disburting the neighbors. The kids enjoy the big space. Allowing them to run around without much restriction. The rooms also have good heating system.

            Good value for money

            My fiancee's parents were very impressed with this accommodation (visitors from the UK). We were made very welcome and given helpful advice for somewhere to eat when we arrived. The rooms were large and very clean, while the living room also contained a small bookshelf with some useful content on things to see and do in Australia - a nice touch! The rooms were a little cold (visited in October) but electric blankets were on all beds to combat that. Would definitely recommend as good value stop in the area.
