The room was fine but outside there were a lot of empty beer bottles and boxes lying around in the garden near reception. They had obviously been chucked there by guests. They were not removed in 20 hours of us being there. Also our patio had rubbish around the table, bird droppings on the table and spiderwebs on the chairs.... More

Just spent a great extended weekend with 16 golfing buddies at Barwon Heads Resort. The new management (came in 6-8 months ago) was fabulous to us and made the whole experience memorable. Rooms were clean and very functional for a shared situation, easy access to the golf course and with some pre planning, dinner for 16 worked really well. All... More

We arrived Thursday for 3 days of golf. The restaurant opened specially for our group and the steaks were cooked to perfection. Nothing was to much trouble, from the late check out for a post golf shower, to dropping our group in town and picking us up again. Room tip is the top corner end units. They have a better... More

I booked this place for an overnight stay in late November 2015 as I was attending the Geelong Revival. All accommodation in Geelong was booked and this place looked nice. On arrival the lady on the front desk said that she would give us a discount of $60 as we were not using the second bedroom in the 2 bedroom... More

When we arrived for our romantic weekend away the staff on reception were completely clueless as to the details of our booking. We thought we had booked dinner, bed and breakfast - but confusingly only the bed aspect was paid. The staff could not help us understand our booking.
