I spent one night at this motel. The room is pretty much a standard motel room, with nothing much to distinguish it from any of hundreds of motels all over the world although it was probably larger than a lot of other. Mine had a queen bed, a single bed, a small couch and a small table with 2 chairs....

A terrific place to stay in the centre of town. Rooms are very spacious and very clean. The owners are lovely friendly people. Easy walking distance to all that Cowes offers and easy to get back on the main road to get to the destinations around the island further afield. Would definitely return.

We have just returned from an overnight stay in Cowes. We chose the Arthur Phillip Motor Inn after reading other reviews. On arrival we met Janine, the proprietor. Janine was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us information regarding the Penguin Parade, a local attraction, and suggested we book our tickets. If not for that suggestion, we would have missed...

We stayed for 2 nights and our room was clean and comfy and central to most of the things we wanted to see on Phillip Island. Staff was friendly at booking. Rooms are a decent size, back a bit from the street and parking is in front of the rooms (normal). Room service is available although we didn't use it....

Stayed for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised at how big the rooms are. Management extremely friendly and helpful. A 5 minute walk to R S L and 10 to 15 min walk to Cowes shops and restaurants. Plenty of tea, coffee and sugar supplied and rooms cleaned every day even on the Grand Final public holiday day.

We had the family room for one night. It was quiet and comfortable. The rooms and bathroom were clean and the beds comfortable. It is also in a good location, about 10 minutes from the Penguin Parade and the Nobbies. Also within walking distance to restaurants.

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...

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. :)
