Stayed for two nights in March with an overseas visitor to see penguins. These apartments were perfect for our needs, it was clean and spacious in a secure complex conveniently located in centre of town. Underground parking was a little tight but being a half decent driver I was able to park my falcon quite easily into a corner spot.... More

Conveniently located in centre of Cowes. Apartment is large and reasonably comfortable with a shared bathroom. Parking is undercover but very tight so unpacking of car essential before parking. Shortcomings are numerous. Including BBQ on balcony, but no gas bottle, Only one toilet roll provided for a three night stay for four people. Bedside lamps only in one bedroom and... More

Stayed here last weekend, was a very convenient location. I did a lot of hiking & photography in the area. You can check out some photos on Facebook Abandoned Australia. Close to shops, beach, cafes...everything! I was concerned that it would be noisy at night, but didn't hear a thing. So was able to relax every night after a long... More

Stayed 4 nights during peak season and we were happily surprised. Reading previous comments we were a little unsure of what to expect but to our surprise we had a clean well kept room. It was. If enough for our family and all the swimming stuff required when travelling to the beach with a young family. We enjoyed ourselves so... More

We booked through the Phillip Island Apartments site which shows the nice unit block with the pool. In reality we were to be housed at the Oceanic on Thompson. Be very careful when booking that you know exactly which complex you'll be at! The Oceanic has none of the facilities advertised on Phillip Island apartments (ie no wi-fi, no pools,... More

location was excellent, right in the middle of the town. Only a short walk to supermarkets, cafe's, and restaurants. And only a short drive to the penguin parade and Amaze n Things. The room was very spacious and had a heater and air con that I both used. Overall I was happy with this apartment and didn't have any regrets.... More

Apartment needs a good clean, cobwebs on the ceiling everywhere, carpets stained and well warn, sheets had stains on them, no internet at all, you need to go to the computer shop in town to use there computers if you want internet. Location is good as you are in the main street so close to everything but you need to... More

Terrible. Lets start with only 2 towels for a four person apartment, water damage throughout apartment, broken blind, tiny hit water wervice where I couldn't even half fill the bath for the kids, not enough cups or culterly. Was very disappointed. I emailed my concerns upon my return hime and didn't even get an epacknowledgement for my email.

We stayed there for 2 nights and were not disappointed. The apartment was spacious and fully equipped with washing machine, dryer, kitchen facilities etc. Plenty of room for a family of 4. Beds were comfortable. The only gripe we had was that there were no lifts, and that meant that we had to climb up 3 flights of stairs with... More

We stayed one night in a three bedroom apartment. We were surprised and please that the apartment had an ensuite, bathroom and additional third toilet. Apartment layout was terrific given we were with friends. Given the price per person, I think Oceanic offers value for money. Staff allowed an early check in given we had a function to attend and...
