About Parkside Motel

Travellers can enjoy self-catering accommodations just outside the Richmond town centre at Parkside Motel. The motel features its own outdoor pool, which is heated during swimming season.

Guests can choose between studio, executive, one, and two-bedroom units. Some rooms have their own balcony or patio, and guests have access to kitchenettes, sitting areas, and dining rooms. Spa tubs and sofa-beds are included in select rooms.

Parkside Motel offers guests free parking and a laundry service. In addition, guests with families can request cots and highchairs at no extra charge.

Guests are expected to cater for themselves, but the motel has its own barbecue facility that is open for use. Beverley Store sells groceries and is a convenient, nine-minute walk from the motel.

It isn't far to travel to enjoy the sights: guests can get to the Great Taste Cycle Trail in fewer than 15 minutes walking, while Richmond Mall is only a four-minute drive from the motel.

Positive Reviews

Welcoming hosts and staff

It seems impossible to stress exactly how much guests love the hosts and staff at this hotel. They consistently praise the level of comfort these individuals strive to provide travellers, and guests often gush about how happy they were with their stay, especially due to the accommodating nature of the hotel's staff.

Poolside paradise

Guests love the pool at this hotel. Many of them state that it is relaxing but also fun for families with young children. It is also considered by many guests to be a large, functional area for recreational swimming, and many state that it is kept clean, which means it checks all the boxes.

Location is lovely

Because the hotel is close to a handful of local restaurants, shops, and activities, and because it is not too far from Richmond city centre, guests are quite thrilled with its location. This is also mentioned in reviews that the hotel is close to the main road so travellers don't have to stray far to find what they need.

Negative Reviews

Noisy traffic-side rooms

Guests complain about having rooms facing the highway, which they state can get a bit noisy, especially during rush hour traffic. Reviews suggest that poolside rooms and those facing the park are quieter, but during busier periods of occupancy when these rooms are already booked, traffic noise is likely to be an issue
