Historic William Hill's Cottage - the best of both worlds.

William Hill's Cottage is located in the very heart of Geelong West.

The Georgian style, early Victorian Cottage was built in 1854 for a Mr William Hill, who lived in the property until 1859, when he returned to England.

The four generously proportioned rooms in the original building accomodate the four bedrooms. These can be configured as a Queen Bedroom, Double Bedroom, King Bedroom a King size bed or two King Single beds and the Single Room, with one or two Single Beds.

A glass atrium transitions you into the 21st century. The large open plan living space has all the comforts you would expect from a property of this quality. Relax on the comfy 2 and 3 seater leather lounges, or put your feet up on the recliner with footstool. Read a book, watch a movie, or just chill in this light filled spacious north-east facing room. Reverse cycle air conditioning means you control the climate.

Entertaining? Why not take advantage of the well appointed kitchen and large dining area. The table seats 8 comfortably, and the kitchen has tableware and drinkware for 8, so it's perfect for getting together with family and friends.

If 'Cafe Culture', Fashion and Homewares are your scene...

You can "shop till you drop" on fabulous Pakington Street; Pako to the locals.

There are any number of great fashion stores catering for all tastes and styles; from the unique to well known brands. A great mix for all age groups and budgets.

You can combine your shopping with as many culinary experiences as you want to enjoy.

With more than 35 cafes, restaurants and eateries right on Pakington Street between Gordon Avenue and Church Street, you can decide if it's a great cup of coffee you want, or a real dining experience. Yes, they're all within walking distance.

Want to venture beyond Pakington Street?

Then the Geelong CBD and Waterfront are just a five minute drive, or a casual stroll.

Need to relax and sooth the muscles after all that activity?

Head back to the cottage and recline in the generous Spa Bath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home We had a fantastic time for our short stay away at Lisa and Chris's beautifully restored heritage home. Felt as though we had been away forever. Fantastic location and only a short drive away from all of the major beaches and attractions. Spoilt for choice with great places to eat. Greeted warmly by Lisa on arrival and nothing was too much trouble. We are already planning our next break away. Thank you Chris and Lisa for your incredible hospitality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful property, host & location. Had a wonderful stay in a lovely property. Host Lisa was great from first contact. Quiet & spacious home with everything required for a comfortable stay plus the extra touches with more than a continental breakfast supplied - my wife said it was fabulous. Great location with many food, coffee & retail shops within a 5 minute walk. An easy walk to the pier, central Geelong and many other areas. We will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Property Had a lovely two nights at William Hills Cottage. Very central to everything. Lovely sunny courtyard to sit and have a wine or coffee. Beds were comfy. We had all the home comforts we needed. Everything was provided for breakfast so we didn't need to rush out to the supermarket which was so good. Lisa was a lovely host and we would definitely stay again when next in Geelong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC LITTLE COTTAGE We stayed for a girls weekend great little cottage in the walking distance to shops and restaurants. The attention to details and cleanliness of the cottage was amazing. The only thing that was lacking was an extra toilet and bathroom (being 5 woman it was needed) but in saying that we loved the place and we will be back to stay again .
