The Seahorse Motel is a classic stop in a very nice town on Philip Island. We chose to upgrade, the extra expense was worth it as the room was enormous. The equipment in the room looked quite new. There is a BBQ area near where the cars park that we didn't use but that like the pool was very well...

The owners could not have been more helpful. My room was certainly big enough with a full sized fridge. Perfect for a family as big bed, in seperate room, and two singles in lounge/dining. Good pool. Only a short 10-15 walk to main street. Working up there while staying here, but would visit in my own time.

First, this is a nice and clean motel, full kitchen, beds are very comfortable, very clean linen, quite and large area. Kids love the pool and playground. We will find a shining and warm day to book again.

Pleasant stay here. Local to the shops and restaurants of Cowes. Clean and modern apartment, friendly staff. Had a noisy neighbour in the room next door, in particular the evening but that I'm sure was a rarity. Although free WiFi is on offer, it kept cutting out and wasn't very reliable when trying to book my next destinations accommodation. Would...

Hubby and i stayed here. Very happy with the accommodation. The room was clean and a good size and the bed was very comfy. Walking distance from the shops which was also great. Great place for kids too as there's a playground and an outdoor pool.

We've stayed here a couple of times now and it's like a little home away from home. The owners are so friendly. Everything you need is there. However, word of mouth must have gotten out because it's mostly booked out for Christmas/New Year. But we will go back in February after school holidays. You'll love it.

We just rocked up to the premises to book our accommodation for 1 night as we were let down by another booked accommodation at Cowes, and it certainly did not disappoint. Excellent value for our money, rooms were big and bed very comfortable, shower was large and most importantly the rooms were spotless. It ticked all our boxes, it was...

The hotel appeared to have been newly renovated. It is in a good location within easy walking distance to the beach, town centre and supermarkets. The staff are very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Very happy with our 3 night stay. The king size bed was so comfortable, the shower worked perfectly and the room was very spacious. The heated pool and play area was perfect for entertaining children while I relaxed on the lawn area. It was only a short distance to the shops, restuarants and foreshore. The service was outstanding. We stayed...
