My husband and I spent a night at The Waves and it was great!

We were wow-ed by how spacious the apartment was and a bath tub was just what we need for the cold winter night (especially after visiting the fairy penguins). It was a waste that there was actually a hot water limit imposed and it was not stated upfront. My husband had his shower before me and I had to shower in cold water.

But the bed was very comfortable and we had a good night sleep. A simple breakfast consisting milk, cereal, slices of bread, butter and jam were provided but the milk was expired! :-( We did not drink but was told by fellow travel mates.

Staff was very cheerful and friendly. We had to borrow a travel adapter because ours was spoilt and she lent us one immediately, with no deposit required.

Overall, it provided us with a warm night sleep which we desperately needed on a winter night. :)

As a last minute thing we chose the waves. We were very lucky to receive a midweek deal & were extremely happy with our spacious room. It was beautifully clean & very comfortable. We walked into town for dinner & borrowed a free DVD to relax with later. A lovely visit with beautiful amenities & friendly staff. I can very much recommend an offseason midweek visit if you want to relax with almost the whole place to yourself ;-)

Stayed here for a couple of nights. We had a one bedroom water view apartment. It was spacious and clean. The bath was a spa which was nice.

The only gripe would be the hard bed. It was not a comfy as it could be.

Stayed here a couple of nights while touring Phillip Island and the area. It was clean, modern and a great location (close to down town Cowes). It's a bit pricey but everything is here. Across the street from the park/water it's a wonderful hotel to see the sights.

We had 2 nights at waves, it was a great position, lovely and clean and the managers were very friendly and helpful. Could not fault the apartment at all, it was handy to some great little Restaurants Pinos and Jeffersons in the main street. I would highly recommend a trip to Phillip Island, it was a great little getaway with a difference.

We have been going to the Waves Apartments for 15 years, in that time it has grown and expanded, we have always had excellent service, top quality accommodation, extremely clean and well maintained facilities. The location couldn't be better with beautiful ocean views.
