Stayed at the Seahorse on Saturday night. Great motel in a fantastic location. Only a 5 - 10 minute walk to the main street of Cowes. Rooms are a comfortable size, very clean and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. Owners were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Phillip Isand.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at Cowes. Going on the reviews here, we booked at the Seahorse Motel. We could not have been more pleased. The host was kind and welcoming and very friendly. Our room was very spacious, and the bed very comfortable. The shower worked well, as did the amenities such as the WiFi and... More

Stayed here for a night and found the place well kept and clean. Great that parking is free. My 4yo loves the playground -- will be a great place to occupy the kids in summer. Convenient place as it is a short drive away from Penguin Parade and other attractions such as A maze and things.

I had booked on a whim without any research - a last minute long weekend 1 night stay. As soon as I had arrived, the owners asked if I had booked penguin tickets. (I had not) They had heard that the Penguins were likely to sell out. so, before I had even checked in, the owners had dialled the ticket... More

This motel was ideal for my cousin and I, the room we had was ground floor and could sleep up to five people with two doubles both en suite and a single bed in the living area. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, the beds were even equipped with an electric blanket which was wonderful as the few days we... More

Highly recommend the Seahorse Motel - we received excellent service from the outset, starting with the phone booking where the motel owners suggestion saved us $50. Then, upon check in, Leno helped us with a Penguin PIE pass which enabled us to see 4 of the attractions on our wish list. This pass saved us not only money but time... More

We stayed here on our trip of Victoria. The owner of the motel was very helpful. The motel is well kept. The king room we stayed in was very clean and modern. The bed was very comfortable. The free wifi worked really well. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Phillip Island

We stayed only one night in one of the luxury king rooms but could have easily stayed much longer! The room is very large and even has room for a large lounge suite. The bathroom is quite large as well. The king bed was nice and comfortable to sleep on, and is very peaceful - no noise at all was... More
