Received a warm welcome from Rachel, the hosts, who promptly checked us in. She helped us arrange for taxi services around Phillip Island and suggested good places for dinner - Rusty Waters - after learning that we did not drive. The views from the room was perfect - sea view with strong rolling waves crashing into the beach. We were... More

I took my partner to cliff top for a romantic and relaxing weekend and we walked out of there wanting to stay longer. Views are amazing, beach is just around the corner and the staff are very welcoming. We were talking about getting married at cliff top and they were more than happy to show us all the rooms and...

What an absolutely fantastic place to stay. We had a couples only weekend away without the kids (although next.time we will take the kids). We were looking for a relaxing place to stay and boy did we get it. Cliff top was absolutely fantastic to say the least. Gorgeous views, luxious rooms and next to none the best hospitality you...

Rachel and (?her mum) greeted us and were super warm and lovely. We stayed on a freezing cold day I think if you got an upstairs room with a beach beiw it would be spectacular. We were on the bottom floor whilst it wasn't a terrible outlook it was nothing special. The bed was comfy and the room was very... More

This accommodation may be small with 8 keys but it packs a punch and does the term "B&B / Boutique Accommodation" justice. The family running the place (Rachel & Helen) are extremely helpful and thoughtful - from helping us settle into the rooms, warming up the rooms (very cold winter's day), food recommendations, island activities and making sure we bring...

We had our wedding at Clifftop Boutique and we can honestly say there is not one thing we would change about our whole experience. From the friendliness of staff, to their professionalism and attention to detail, their understanding of how you'd like your special day to feel and flow, their cooperation and willingness to make everything as perfect as possible,...

The views far surpassed Sydney and Darwin but the best memories were made through the flawless service we received. This B&B managed to out-do any 5-star hotel we've stayed at. Upon check-in we had warm banana bread, cappuccino and tea. Shortly followed by another complimentary treat of a bottle of wine of our choice. The 180 degree ocean and greenery... More

A wonderful weekend away at clifftop accommodation. Staying at clifftop made our weekend getaway perfect. The room was charming, with beautiful furnishings and a breathtaking view of the ocean. Helen was kind and very hospitable and went out of her way to make our stay extra special. Will recommend clifftop accommodation to all my family and friends!

I stayed here with friends and found that we were constantly banging our head against the wall. I was expecting luxury for the price and the way it was portrayed online but everything from the room finishings in the room to the service provided was slapdash. Everything was an extra charge or not included in the package and it left... More

We were unsure where to stay on Philip Island and wanted somewhere quiet and comfortable and not oppressive. Cliff Top could not have been better. Our hosts were remarkable, helpful, thoughtful, cheerful and really good company. The location is breath-taking with walks on the headlands and on the beaches. Marvelous wildlife including (relatively) tame wallabies.. The room was spacious and... More
