“Recommend Bridge Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2007

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.

I recently stayed at the Bridge Motel Newhaven. As you can tell from the name, it is a motel so quite basic. It is located in Newhaven, Phillip Island in Victoria Australia. Newhaven is at the very start of Phillip Island just after you cross the bridge from Mainland (San Remo)

The Motel is clean & comfortable with a good heater and really nice location, very quiet and pretty. It is directly opposite the water and very peacelful with just a few shops 100 or so metres down the road. It is convenient to all the attractions of Phillip Island by road. We had a room with spa which was great, the spa was really cool and very big in comparision to other motels I have stayed at.

Also, Our room was serviced which was quite cool and we ordered breakfast in the room which was well priced and really yum!

I would recommend this mainly to couples as the rooms are not huge with no cooking facilities so families should probably look elswhere.
