We stayed at the Bridge Motel on a long weekend. We booked by contacting the motel directly and (due to it being a long weekend) had to pay in advance.
Finding the motel is simple; take the first right once you cross the bridge.
This is a motel (3 star Australian, 2 star US standards), so as noted in a previous review it is fairly basic. But for this category of accommodation, it was very good and highly recommended.
The whole place was clean, I would say that cleanliness is a strong point for this place. Beds are comfortable; bathroom is basic but clean (bring your own shampoo), hot water works, heating works, TV works. Everything in good repair and no sign of being run-down (except fridge was a bit on the old side).
Our stay went very smoothly - checkin/checkout was no problem.
The motel offers reasonably priced continental breakfast - we didn't get it, but the prices seemed very fair. For dining, there's not much in Newhaven, suggest going over the bridge to San Remo.
The biggest knock I had for this place was the price (a bit high for what you get), but I think that's true for most places on Phillip Island.
If you are going to see the penguins, allow around 25 mins from Newhaven depending how fast you drive.
