My wife organised a weekend with 22 family and friends at King Parrot Cottages. The weekend was amazing the various 1,3& 4 bed cottages were utilized for our family. The lodge was the congregating place for lunches and communal breakfasts and the hall was set up for our Italian night and our blue & white night (Geelong) for my birthday!... More

We had such a relaxing break. The cottage was well equipped, clean and ideal for what we wanted. The wood box was full, the spa at the right temperature and we were delighted with the setting. Only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Nice to meet Robin and Tony as well as Banjo.

We had a terrific time at KPC. They had all the important bits covered - Well designed and supplied spaces, comfy bed, great ambiance (fire helped) and a picture perfect vista. We only had a short stay and two young kids, so we didn't trek too far. We'll return for a longer play and find that waterfall. Thanks Tony and... More

The one bedroom cottage was amazing, funky and quite interesting, on three levels with a private spa outside on a deck (second level). The bedroom is on the ground level, the bathroom and spa deck is on the middle level, and the open plan living area and kitchen is on the top. The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped. The...

Just over a month ago we were sitting by the campfire, drinks in hand reminiscing about the day that had just been! In a picture perfect setting, wind spiralling between the trees, birds watching from their perches and kangaroos hopping by - we tied the knot! A day that was always going to be magical was made even moreso because... More

King parrot is a remote little slice of paradise in the middle of nowhere. Ideal for tranquil nights on the balcony overlooking the mountain and trees, topped off my w hot private spa. Perfect for catching up on sleep - it's very quiet. Would be ideal for families as there is plenty to keep the kids entertained .... It's a... More

We have stayed at this resort twice this year, once in June and again a few weeks ago with two other families. We have stayed in both Aquilla Cottage and Managum Cottage. These are just beautiful cottages, very well maintained throughout. They are spacious, light and you just feel like it is a home away from home - the kitchen... More

When we first stayed at King Parrot we could not believe how beautiful and peaceful the surrounds were. There are trees as far as you can see and the king parrots visited regularly, which was exciting for the kids. We enjoyed lots of bush walks as well as spending time with the animals and in the playground. The cottage was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the foothills of the Otway Ranges; less than 1 1/2 hours drive from the Westgate Bridge, and only 20 minutes from Lorne, King Parrot Cottages offer the perfect holiday retreat for couples, families and large groups. Six architect-designed, fully self-contained, one to four bedroom cottages can accommodate from one couple to 14 people. Each offers comfort, character and privacy with stunning valley views. The 200 acre property fronts the Pennyroyal Valley creek and there are many bush walks along the creek or through our forest into the Otways National Park. It is a nature lover's paradise with many different types of parrots and other birds, including the wedge tailed eagle and our own mob of kangaroos. Enjoy a game of pool in the games room, a swim in the pool, a game of mini golf or just relax and take a breath of fresh air. We have horses, donkeys and alpacas as well as our resident ridgeback dogs. ... more   less
