We stayed in apartment 1 and were extremely pleased with our stay. Super comfy bed, electric blankets, spacious, very clean and linen was very good quality. Everything we needed for a quick stay. Good location.

We stayed for one night over the weekend. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We booked online, paid a deposit and there was no mentioned of credit card fees until we arrived to pay the full amount.
The heater in the room appeared not to work. The electric blanket only worked on one side of the double bed. As it was late in the night, we did not want to trouble the proprietors. It was also one coldest nights of the year.
The soap dispenser at the bathroom sink was so stiff that we could not squeeze anything out.
The room was clean and a good size for 3 people.

I have stayed at the Parkwood motel on two occasions lately rooms 11 and 1 and I am more than happy, on both occasions I was able to leave my luggage in the room early as I had luncheon appointments. Rooms I have stayed in are spacious and very clean free wifi and amenities.
Beds are comfortable and a good nights sleep I have had on both occasions.
I will defiant eek stay at the Parkwood again.

We stayed her just the one night as we were passing through. The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful!! The free wifi was a great bonus for the kids, enabling them to calm down from a full day. Breakfast was delicious and still hot! Great, clean room and not noisy at all (and I am a light sleeper!)
Thank you - we will be back and would recommend it to everyone!

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!

I believe you may have stayedin one of our motel rooms from your comments- we certainly have crockery available for you upon request.. if you stayed in our Apartments or the house- they are all have fully equipped kitchens with crockery, pots/pans and utensils- which is included in the price.
We are pleased that you advised to take ground floor for the large luggage items- it is awkward lugging up and down the stairs with luggage. Our aim is to please where we can accommodate upon your request.Thankyou for your review and staying at Parkwood Motel & Apartments.

The lady who seems to be an owner was very kind and the room was very clean. And fresh smell from the linens, which was very delightful

The owners who greeted us when we got here were so lovely and hospitable. We were newly weds and they upgraded us to the "house" which was so comfortable and specious at no extra cost. We came with our families and the stay was a very pleasant one.. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all the necessary things to cook a nice meal.. We will definitely come stay here next time. Thank you and hope the owners enjoyed the cake:)
