Arthur Phillip Motor Inn is the cleanest, most spacious & most complete motel we've ever been in! It's really well kept. Really delighted how complete it is...TV, microwave, kettle, toaster, mugs, glasses, extra blankets. They've thought of everything. The owners are really nice and friendly and they really make sure you're looked after. Great place. We'll be returning here again!

We have stayed here numerous times and I've only just gotten around to writing this review...sorry Mark and Janine! We always stay at the end of February for four nights. There is always a group of us, normally about 14 in total. We are all very keen World Superbike fans. We also stayed for the Island Classic motorcycle race meeting... More

We had originally reserved an apartment at the nearby Ramada resort but due to the fact that, while outside temperatures were n the 40 degrees centigrade region, the booked apartment (which, incidentally had been booked at least eight months before) had no air conditioning. This being absurd we looked for another venue - found Arthur Phillip Motor Inn and were... More

This little motor inn is a step above what you expect for a motor inn. It's easy, clean, well appointed with fresh linens and an updated look and nicely located. The on-sight proprietors are friendly and helpful.

Close to the nicest place we stayed in on our trip from Sydney down through Victoria and along the Great Ocean Road. The lovely lady at reception was very helpful and knowledgeable about the Penguin Parade and it certainly wasn't her fault that it was quite a cold experience. The room was lovely and spacious and very clean. We were... More

Another quality week made all the more special by the owners of Arthur Phillip Motor Inn. I look forward to my next visit to the Island and stay at my favourite motel. There is a raft of reasons to stay at the Arthur Phillip but the treatment we receive just CAPS of the journey
