I stayed here with my 2 children. A great spot which backs on to Jubilee Park so kids had an entire park to run around / play cricket & soccer etc. Our room looked out over the park and although the motel is on a main road, the unit was very quiet. The weather was fantastic so the pool was...

Thank you Erin. Pleased you had a great time. All most all of our rooms have the same or a similar outlook over the park which in addition to being available for recreation has the bonus of being available for overflow parking. The pool is almost an essential item at this time of the year and is being heavily used...

Stayed at Parkside Motel for 3 nights and felt amazingly recharged. The double room suite was perfect for 4 adults. Housekeeping did a great job every day and left heaps of tea and coffee. The pool was also excellent and beautifully clean. Also super close to The Cellar Door winery and just a walk to Richmond town centre.

Its wonderful that our facilities and service met your expectations. Having the Cellar Door, Winery within walking distance is certainly a bonus attraction for some. There are other winery's and other similar attractions not much further away but still within walking distance that are equally as pleasant to visit.

Parkside Motel sits on the main road through Richmond. Our first floor, spotless, well equipped 1 bedroom unit overlooked the pool and park. The sheltered balcony was plenty large enough for the two of us. The unit was serviced every day and what we really appreciated were the small things. Chainui tea replenished every day, for example. Free, easily accessed...

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that the standards we set met your expectations. Although yours is the first comment about the seating that we can recall we are planning to gradually replace lounge seating in the foreseeable future.

Ground floor disability unit. Clean with all the facilities of a self contained unit. Sky free WiFi and walking distance to shops. Good size room with clean bathroom modern looking. Staff were friendly and helpful and the main road noise isn't a issue. Would come back again.

Not my usual family trip - but a team trip to a national hockey tournament. The Parkside was good overall - the rooms were spacious and with good cooking and dining equipment. It was nice to be by the park and the pool and surrounds were lovely. Great gas BBQ for communal dinners. The cleaners came and tidied up when...
