Personally thought 180 was a bit expensive for one night in Geelong. Location was good with a park across the road and a playground on the premise for little kids. Had to ask for a very late check out which was arranged without any issue or extra cost. Great service.

Excellent family accommodation, lots to do for a young family with tennis court and play ground. Close to shopping centre and attractions. Friendly staff and clean self contained unit with all cooking amenities you could ask for on holidays.

Great location close to shops, RSL. Lovely walking track nearby. We stayed in self contained apartment with two rooms with our two teenage daughters, all the beds were comfortable and the rooms had everything a family needed.

Was nice to stay in a modern unit with all facilities that you expect and more (thanks for the washing machine to wash our swimming towels etc) . Kids loved being able to watch the kids channels on foxtel and most importantly, the free wifi. Loved having a good nights sleep in a strange bed too!!

Stayed a while ago, but looking to stay again, and was prompted to write this review. Units are reasonably spacious and very clean, well set out. Pool and playground for younger kids, and just across the road from the wonderful Barwon River parklands. Supermarkets etc. all close by, short drive (or bus) to Geelong CBD & the waterfront areas.

Great family retreat. Plenty of space in the unit and the grounds to enjoy the facilities - playground, tennis court and lake frequented by water birds. I have stayed with my children twice this year. I would choose Barwon Valley Lodge every-time, as I found it a quiet and relaxing environment to stay. The dishwasher, washing machine and dryer being... More

Very happy with our short stay at Barwon Valley Lodge. While the place doesn't look much from the outside the 2 brm apartment we stayed in was modern, clean and had everything you could need for a self contained apartment. Tennis court, pool and lovely position by the river. Staff were very helpful and accomodating. Would definitely recommend.

We were to stay 2 nights but wished we could've stayed longer. We felt very welcome and our host brought our bags up to our apartment. And what a lovely surprise - the apartment was fresh, super clean with modern kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Warm and cosy. Did I say I loved the kitchen? 😁 Set on acreage with a... More
