We stayed 4 nights in the dorm accommodation, simple but clean and well equipped for a great price. A spectacular setting with views across Westernport Bay, ideal for sitting on the veranda with a wine watching the sunset. Ideal for walkers and cyclists, bird watchers and nature enthusiasts with National Park comprising 2/3 of the island. We saw numerous species... More

This was a wonderful way to spend a weekend away from Melbourne with friends. Phil picked us up from the Ferry and continued to 'ferry us around' all weekend, dropping us off to get our bikes and picking us up when our legs were tired! After a long day cycling around the island, Phil and Yukay cooked us up a... More

I organised a small group to visit french island (I'm with Alex S's group). Everything she said but I wanted to add that Phil was so accommodating in our continually changing plans in the weeks before we arrived. I had no idea that Phil's place would be so good. The backpacker lodge is one of the best dorm rooms I've... More

Delicious food. Room was spacious and comfortable. Phil was great fun and very helpful, picked us up from ferry and really went... More

My friend and I were treated like royalty by Phil the owner and Chef. We ate what we wanted we dined when we wanted, we asked a million questions which Phil patiently answered. If you want to get away from all things demanding in your life and be looked after this is the place for you. The rooms are clean... More

A friend and I stayed on the beautiful island that many of our Melbournian colleagues didn't even know of, and Phil could not have been more hospitable. A choice of rooms, a burning fire, an offer to pick us up if we got lost, a tyre puncture or just too tired from riding around the tracks,....and an awesome 'vegetarian request'... More

French Isand Eco Inn was the perfect place for our group of 20 family and friends to spend a few days enjoying the beautiful island. We went on walks along the beaches and bike rides around the island seeing many koalas as we went. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable, the food was very satisfying and the views from the...

We had a wonderful weekend here. We arrived as the sun was setting and the view was stunning from our cabin and it felt so peaceful. Phil the owner, couldn't have been more helpful or hospitable and we would have loved to stay longer. The accommodation was nicely furnished and had everything we needed. A really great place to stay... More
