“All the basics that you need are there...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The room was clean and tidy. Not luxurious but good enough. Free wifi in our unit, which was a clear added plus. Our kitchen stove wasn't functioning, and after the owner came to inspect, handed us the key to the neighboring unit (which was vacant) for us to use the stove there - certainly a nice gesture.

The motel was outdated and run down. There was stains on the bed sheets and the towels. We could here everything that was happening in the room next to us. The location was good though. $169 for a single night was a joke though, the photos online must have been from a different room as our room looked nothing like it.

I spent 2 nights with my girlfriend at the coachman, we booked the studiospa room, it was well clean and big, they also have a cheap deal for it.
The welcome was friendly and they where really available, you can choose the breakfast that is bring straight to your bedroom in the morning.
In 10 minutes is possible reach the Penguin Parade and Nobbies, or have a walk on the esplenade of Cowes, just out the door.
During the low season the place is quiet, ideal for a weekend.

The motel was clean and tidy and the managers were very friendly. It was booked using Wot-if and was everything that one would expect of an in town motel. Very conveniently positioned for all of Philip Island attractions - the Penguin Parade, the coastline and the various towns,

We booked on www.booking.com for $118 and to be honest, we weren't expecting much. However, the room was lovely, a good size, very clean, not flashy but it had a corner spa and newly renovated bathroom which was utilised and appreciated after driving from Ballarat, thus a good night's sleep. Had a bit of giggle re the VHS library at reception but there were DVD's too. Toiletries and hot beverage goodies, nice lamps, the linen was clean but the doona cover was bit daggy. Robyn is very nice and very gently spoken. It was close to Cowes so a short work to eateries etc. We drove to their fabulous RSL and had a fabulous meal.

My daughter and I had a spa suite and it suited us very well. The bathroom was very nice and the room had a microwave and fridge (very quiet, as was the motel itself). The motel is in a great location, one street back from the beach, and all in all was good value for money.
