This was a warm & comfortable motel for an overnight stay. The room was clean and basic with free wifi. Room was quiet with parking directly out the front. Location is excellent for main street restaurants and shopping. Also only a 10 minute drive to penguin viewing. Room service breakfast was available however, we didn't eat here. My only issue...

Stayed for two nights in June 2016. Location is good. It's near the Cowes town center - about 15 min walk, < 5 min drive. Not far from Penguin Parage (drive, <15 min) and other Philip Island attractions as well. Room is large, clean and well maintained, although one improvement I can think of is the shower still uses the... More

We only stayed for one night at the Arthur Phillip Motor Inn. Location was great, close to all restaurants, shops, bars, all within walking distance. Room was what we expected. Obviously not a 5 start resort but was as described online. Clean room, plenty parking and staff were friendly. I'd stay again when I go back to Phillip Island. :)

A 10 minutes ride from Penguines Parade, close to the sea, many restaurants and different tourist attractions, this simple motel offers everything one needs. When we arrived on the rainy evening, we could watch a whole bunch of parrots looking for food on the lawn in front of the motel. On the way to watch penguins, we saw lots of... More

Nice clean room. Quiet location, close to town. Just a suggestion - it would be handy to have some crockery and milk in the room rather than find out in the morning that they were available on request from reception. A bit inconvenient when you are in your pj,s Other than that would recommend.

Stayed a night to explore Philip Island. Owners are friendly and offered travel tips on attractions to see. Room was clean. Got upgraded to a spa room although we didnt really need a spa nor used it. Good value for money. Looks to be the best motel on the island and quite close to town stores and restaurants. Central location... More

Stayed one night here. Motel was simple but has everything you need. Easy to locate with google map and to park, right outside the door. It's 15 min driving to the Penguin Parade and also a very short drive to restaurants around. Recommended!!

Clean and easy motel in Cowes on the main road. Friendly staff. Barely-functioning internet, so cannot recommend if you need to get any business done. $135 AUD for queen/single combo room. Recommended.
