Another great accommodation choice. The cottages were large and comfortable. We had a two bedroom cottage with large queen bed in one room and two singles in the other. Large kitchen with microwave and cooktop. Also a large fridge freezer. TV with sky channels large sofas, dining table, chairs on the front porch and a private courtyard out the back... More

The Cottages are amazing. Comfy beds, clean rooms and overall wonderful. Couldn't be happier. The location is great, close to everything yet far enough away to have a peaceful stay. Walking distance to everything and the friendliest people I've ever met. Nothing is too much trouble. Very well equipped rooms.

We got caught needing last minute overnight accommodation due to a severe traffic accident blocking the only route off the island. Courtney set us up last minute in a x2 b'room cabin & nothing was too much trouble. Cabin was basic but cosy, very clean and welcoming. Thank you very much Courtney, We will definitely be back for a longer... More

The first thing you'll notice is the location of this place. Close to beach, Shops and conveniences. Best thing is, you can leave your car and go every where by foot. The place was spotlessly clean and the service from management exemplary. See you next time

These are good value rooms in an area where accommodation isn't cheap, they are well equipped with a kitchen, and a separate bedroom. They are reasonably old but in very good condition. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in this area. It's a little way to the main shopping area but it's a quiet part of the town

Just nice. All worked and was spiky clean in a great location. Small drive away from amazing penguin parade. Restaurants in the area are so so. So worth it to buy your own I. A local supermarket and prepare at home.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. I have just started painting the cottages as I agree they could do with freshening up. I have just received some new crockery and will be putting them in the cottages once I have re-lined the kitchen drawers. My aim as manager is to constantly improve our accommodation for our guests More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Cowes, our place is all about location! Phillip Island Cottages is an easy 5 minute walk to cafes, restaurants and shops, and a leisurely 150 metre walk to a beautiful north facing beach. The cottages are set in a beautifully manicured garden with lovely green views. The centre piece of the garden is a lovely gazebo with BBQ for communal use. It is the perfect spot to unwind with a cool drink after a day at the beach. We cater also for those cosy mid-winter escapes when you feel the need to flee the city. Off street parking is available for each cottage (1 car). Our fully self-contained 1, 2 and 3 bedroom, reverse cycle air-conditioned cottages come with everything you need for your stay on Phillip Island. The kitchens have a stove top, full size fridge, microwave and all cooking utensils. The living/dining area consists of couches, dining table, new flat screen TV's and DVD players. The cottages have security screens on the front doors to take advantage of the cool summer breeze. Each cottage has its own private courtyard with outdoor furniture. All your linen needs are provided. All this with loads of room leftover. Come and see the world famous Little Penguins, taste the decadent sweets at Panny's Chocolate Factory, get lost in the maze at A MAZE'N Things or just relax on the beach. Phillip Island is a treasure trove of possibilities awaiting your arrival. ... more   less
