We stayed here so that we could go to Penguin Parade without returning to Melbourne very late. The room was clean, tidy and well presented.It was also very inexpensive and,as such, a proper bargain. Upon arrival at reception the lady was very keen to help us plan our stay and went out of her way to give good advice on... More

Stayed in a family room for four days just before MotoGP in February. Really nice, helpful people. Room was very spacious, well equipped, clean, comfortable and quiet. Being on Phillip Island close to everything, in any event easy walk to restaurant strip in Cowes.

As a couple we paid a little extra for a superior room. Very warm welcome and help on places to visit. Good location for a walk to the beach or into Cowes. Only 10 minutes from Penguin Parade . There is a pool and a playground however we did not use either. The laundry room equipment was very efficient too.

Welcomed us as family almost and helped us with booking trips and other ticket Options. Fantastic advice for eating out and... More

Didn't expect too much when we booked this small motel room with a queen size and a single bed for only one night, it turns out to be the best experience for us. The room is very clean, the bed is very comfortable, we had a very good sleep.

You don't have to pay much on luxury hotel around cowes. We stayed in one of family room. The room size was massive…the bed was comfortable, very cleaned. Everything was beyond our expectation. Above all, the owner was very kind and friendly. When we checked in, I told them that we are going to see the penguin parade, looking at... More
