Whilst staying in Australia we decided to stay 1 nt at Phillip island. Our friend booked this so we didn't know what we were staying in. My heart sank when we turned up at the hotel. It looked in desperate need of a revamp so I wasn't expecting much inside either! I always use trip advisor whenever I book anywhere...

The accomodation is over priced , run down ,noisy late at night & the furniture & appliances are well & truely out of date & uncomfortable probably suitable for a football trip if you are using it as a place to keep your belongings & maybe pass out after a big night on it

Our room was lovely, very clean even although it was slightly dated we had a huge room on the ground floor with a king size bed and 2 chairs...

Avoid this place... Yes the Staff is very sympathetic but the hotel is close to be the Bates Motel! Smely rooms, cold as north pole due to lack of insulation of maine door, it has 1 cm in the bottom between the door and the floor, ole paint, dirty and not cleaned... You can find a lots of spider webs...

When we arrived the room we were booked into, the fridge door was open and towels in it. I rang reception and were moved to another room by...

Rooms were quiet ok, not 5 star but well equipped for my needs for the night. Plus the function was held at the venue. Good view of the bay and quiet enough! Had a great nights sleep! Couldn't really complain to much! Little on the high side price wise, but conscience comes at a price all in all not to...
