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

We stayed here in order to see the penguins. The room is outdated but toddler friendly and suits families. There are a lot of things that need to be freshened up but my little children really enjoy playground facilities. The owners were friendly and gave us a lot of information about the penguins.

Would recommend this for families, especially with children. It was comfortable, had easy parking, pleasant staff. Best for kids: a terrific playground in the back, with swings, a little house with "kitchen" (kids stove, food, etc., etc.), and a trampoline. Plus a bench for parents and grandparents to sit on while kids play.

The playground was great for the kids and the Central location was very convenient. We self catered and our room included a full size fridge, stove & microwave as... More
