The proximity to Avalon was ideal & the access arrangements worked well when arriving late & departing for an early flight. There weren't any aspects to dislike.

easily found made for quick trip into Geelong

Pros: It was clean and had everything a family needed.
Location: we were in Geelong for Gymnastics competition, so didnt really do anything else.
spacious for a young family, had enough space for comfort, if had more time there was enough room for the children to play outside if they wanted to.

Nice place to stay close to Avalon Airport

Dean, the owner, couldn’t have been more helpful. The room was tidy, new style, comfy bed, big TV with Netflix and well insulated. Raining and cold when we got there at 8pm but very cosy inside. Excellent place to stay for an early morning flight out of Avalon. Thanks Dean. Will stay again!
