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 parked out rented vehicles right in front of the house. It is about 5 mins drive to restaurants and shops. Our flight...
