Great value, very comfortable

I stayed in one of the spa suites, the accommodation was relatively compact but packed a punch; kitchen, bathroom with super large spa, living room with tv/couch/small table. Bedroom also had another smaller tv. Had a very comfortable sleep, the only negative would have been the temperature (in August), there was a split system in the living room but it did not point towards the bedroom, I had difficulty getting it to heat, rather than just blowing cold air (would be great to have detailed instructions in the room). The bed had an electric blanket, but I prefer not to use them so would have appreciated an extra blanket. Staff were very lovely, room was clean and made for a lovely one night stay. The river and parklands across the road are lovely and well maintained, many locals with prams and running along the river/parklands/play equipment. Lovely view of simmonds stadium lights, would be pretty when they were lit up at night.

Nice Spa Cabin with a good view

This nice Tourist Park is a gem we found online through the recommendation of a friend, nicely tucked away in a little corner within Belmont, with the entrance facing a river. At check-in we got asked some details just to make sure we're the correct persons, but generally smooth procedure. I personally think we just have to be nice to the staff and they will be more than willing to go the extra mile for you. The old gentleman at check-in even told us to help ourselves to a copy of the Geelong Intro Guides they have placed at the counters and went on to show us some visit-worthy places. We got allocated to SU03, which is a Spa Cabin, ideal for couples. It's situated right at the end of the Tourist Park, somewhere at the centre within the row. An elevated cabin means that it would help keep out the rain water from flowing in on rainy days. Also, the driveway to park my car was more than enough for my Nissan Dualis to open all its doors at its widest including the boot of this hatchback, without occupying at space on my neighbour's parking lot. However, I do agree that some other cabins didn't have this luxury of such big parking space. Pleasantly surprised that the cabin doors are like chalets, sliding door style, with blinds available from the inside. Greeting you at the door is the living room, with the kitchenette, which is really useful, especially considering that eating at restaurants will take quite a bite off your wallet compared to cooking on your own. The highlight of this cabin is Jacuzzi tub they have in the bathroom, with heating lights available, so you can still feel some warmth after your shower. This is extremely useful if you're planning to take a shower early in the morning during winter days. The all-in-one air-con/heater is working fine and kept us comfy throughout the times when we were in the cabin. Nothing to pick on, really. The view from my cabin is just nice facing the sun rise every morning and with the dining table near the door, I always enjoy a scenic breakfast watching the sub rise every morning. The only grouse I have is that the Kitchen Vent is not working, luckily we found out about this prior to frying, so what we did was we only cooked soup stuff, otherwise the whole house would have been really oily and smelled bad. Overall quite a comfy stay, other than the channels being limited and sometime bad signals will further limit your TV watching experience, but it didn't really bother me much, since we can do online viewing from our laptop. I didn't bother about WiFi because I bought a Data Sim Card which I tethered the data off my phone. One thing to note is that the reception is only open from 8am to 6pm, so if you're too early, you've got to wait till they open. If you're checking out earlier, all you need to do is to drop the key through a letter hole at their reception door, then off you go. But if you're driving, be sure to tap the reader at the exit, drive your car out before depositing the keys, otherwise you'll be stuck inside until the staff comes back and you may miss your next timing to meet or worse, your flight. So just plan your timings properly and I guarantee you'll be in for a really enjoyable time at this Tourist Park.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

There are lots of places you can shop for food/fashion, etc. From groceries to clothings, including outlet stores of Rip Curl, Billabong and other native Australian brands, just need to make sure you do your homework online so you can get to those places and remember to check their trading hours to avoid a wasted trip!

Fantastic for the family

We stayed only 1 night but it exceeded our expectation. Good value for dollars spent. Pity we did not have more time to explore the surroundings and enjoy all the facilities. Caution: must call in before 6:00pm if you intend to check in later in the evening.

The place grew on us!

Staff handed over the keys without any welcoming conversation nor information. Upon opening the door, I was shocked to find only a 2 seater lounge when the cabin accommodates 6. I had booked a 2 bedroom for 3 adults. The main bed was made up, but none of the bunks, which was disappointing. However, the cabin was immaculately clean and the whole resort very neat and tidy. The TV is high up on the wall and can cause some neck discomfort. However, as the weather improved, so did our feel for the cabin. The beds were comfortable and the shower hot with plenty of pressure. There was shampoo and conditioner but no soap. With children in other cabins up early, there was no sleeping in which is probably to be expected in a tourist park. Having a cafe on site is a plus. Not being used to staying in a cabin was probably the reason for our unfavorable first impression, however, the place grew on us!

For the best pizza, I recommend going to The Clarendon Hotel. Although the service is slow, the food is worth waiting for.

Fantastic group getaway

We were in a group to go to the Geelong races and found the Riverview Tourist Park a perfect location and the self contained cabins were all we needed as a base for our daily outings

So much better than a hotel!

We're a young couple and only came down to Geelong for 2 nights for the footy however our stay couldn't have been any better! Great place, very clean, the cabins have everything you need and more! Very secure holiday park, felt safe and the staff were very friendly! So much better than a room in a hotel for twice the price! Will definitely come back for both a short stay and when we have kids! Perfect place for a family!
