We arrived for a 4 day stay a little early , so the lovely reception staff tried to hurry up housekeeping to get our apartment ready as a matter of urgency, We were asked to come back around 2pm and all would be ready. And at 2pm , the lovely girl gave us the access key and ensured that we... More

Carpet stained, utensils dirty, old tissues found in dryer???? Bench wasn't clean. Do not stay here, beware!!!!!!! Oh and all the door handles are broken! Waste of money, wasn't a relaxing... More

This apartments is located at the center of all the shops, restaurant, cafe and the beach. However checking in a bit troublesome as we need to drive to their main apartment located at the other street. After getting the key from there only then we can go into our apartment. Return key also the same. Parking are free but outside... More

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

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
