We booked in to stay for two nights here and we were very comfortable. Although it was a little out of town, nothing is too far on Philip Island and we could duck over to the race track, to the penguins or into town with ease. Having access to the beach only a few hundred metres away would be handy... More

Thank you. We appreciate feedback from our guests and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Our pool is shut for the winter. It is solar heated and therefore not warm enough to use at this time of year. The spa and sauna are available all year round. More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. There is still plenty to see and do on Phillip Island in the cooler months. Why not take a whale watching cruise next time you are here. More

Spent 2 nights here, the room was clean and tidy and parking outside the door was great. Lovely big shower, full kitchen with plenty of space. Free wi-fi was a boon, especially for the boys who could not wait to sign in any chance they could! The TV on the wall mount had a tendency to slowly move to it's... More

Upon arrival the owner was very friendly and helpful with information. The apartment was very quiet in a residential neighborhood and very well appointed. It was very clean, the beds comfy and the bathroom large. Very well situated, 15 minutes to the Penguin Parade. A very nice 2 night stay.

Geoff provided a warm, friendly welcome and highlighted what there was to do close by. The family room was spacious, clean and well provided. We liked the little touches of the twine wrapped towels!

We booked the Glen Isla Apartments for two nights and what is a better conclusion or proof of satisfaction than to say we were disappointed having booked 2 nights here and 3 in Melbourne instead of the other way around. The surroundings definitely help but the friendly welcome, large room, amenities, ... do not underperform. I see little to criticise... More

Friendly owners. The apartments are well maintained. They have a dvd library so you can watch them back in your room. Just the tv a bit small. Good for a small families or couples. Got a good night's sleep too.
