Spa Studio. Very small room. The sofa in the room was old and faded and had an odour to it we didn't even want to sit on it and the bedspread had stains on it. Dirt behind the toilet and bathroom doors. I think the rooms need to be aired out more often as they just smelled stale. Could do... More

Good location, just slightly off the Main Street. A little too small. Breakfast was pre packed n not hot breakfast as I expected. But for the price I paid I can't ask for more than what was provided. Good for short term stay especially during GP season.

We stayed at the motel for two days while visiting Philip Island. The motel is conveniently located, close to the tourist attractions, shopping and restaurants, and yet in a very quiet neighbourhood. The room was comfortable, clean and affordable, with a great breakfast counter, including a sink, microwave, toaster and kettle. the owners were very friendly and helpful. A great... More

Strategically located. 5 mins walk to the shops and esplanade. 10~15mins drive to Penguin Parade/Nobbies. Well equipped apartment for 2 adults and 2 children. Comes with a well equipped kitchen and free continental breakfast. Spent 3 days 2 nights without any single complaints. This place is quiet and tranquil. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

The trick is to turn it on as soon as you arrive.The rooms are very spacious and exceptionally clean from the bathroom to all the kitchen... More

Stayed for a long weekend here and found the place to be very nice. We had looked at a few places and found them quite pricey for what we wanted so here was definitely value for money. We stayed in room 12 which was perfect for just the 2 of us. From the man at reception, to the cleaners, to... More

A neat motel situated just 200 metres from the main strip of Cowes. Clean and comfortable room of a reasonable size. Didn't feel at all cramped. A small kitchenette with hot plates, microwave and sink. Ensuite was a good size. Continental breakfast (Kellogs cereal and 2 pieces of bread each for toast) included. Tea and coffee of course. Recommended.
