Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Group Booking Wonderful facilities for a group booking. Easy access to Geelong city.
Date published: 2016-02-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Peaceful. Very comfortable room, with my own bathroom. About 1/2 an hr by bus (40,41,42 or 43) into Geelong City or maybe ten minutes to Waurn Ponds railway stn.. The bus services route comes onto the campus making life so much easier. Only 2 negatives; 1st. The share kitchen and lounge area were right next to my bedroom. However, I should point out that my room was the only one on the ground floor and a couple of other guests were rather loud. 2nd. The locations of the reception verses bus stop verses accommodation. (reception ...... bus stop ...... accommodation. A confusing walk and some distance " with luggage," reception to accommodation.
