Silverwater Resort is an enormous near-new resort situated 10 mins from the heart of Phillip Island. It is set on a stunning hillside overlooking the water and comprises several chalet-style buildings housing between 4-12 separate apartments/rooms in each. We paid approx. $350 per night for our family of four (including a full buffet breakfast) and were given a ground floor one bedroom apartment (one queen bed) with an interconnecting resort room (also one queen bed and one bathroom) overlooking the ‘village green’ where many of the families are placed. I did have the choice of booking a two bedroom apartment, but decided to book this configuration as it gave us an extra bathroom, TV and a separate entrance. Although this option was more expensive than the two BR apt, in hindsight I was glad that I paid a little extra per night as it gave us much more privacy and space. We did not hear any of our neighbours (except for the occasional overhead footfall) and barely any noise once the balcony doors were closed. (However, in summer this could present a problem, as voices do carry from the upstairs balconies into the apartments below.) On the positive side, a VERY big plus for us in apt 303S was that our bedroom shared no internal walls with any of our neighbours and faced the quiet rear of the building. On the negative side, the resort room was very small and faced the busy village green, which could present noise issues at night. If I had just booked this room for my husband and myself, I would’ve been very disappointed as it was so small and poky; however as an additional bedroom for our children adjunct to the apartment it was fine. The kitchen was also fairly basic but met our needs for the weekend. The pool area is beautifully landscaped and our children loved swimming in the (very warm) indoor pool; we also enjoyed the gym, games rooms and tennis courts. We had dinner one night in the informal ‘café’ adjacent to the main restaurant which didn’t require bookings and was more casual. The food was fine and well priced. Overall, we had a wonderful time and found the resort staff very accommodating and pleasant. Although it was extremely busy, the atmosphere was friendly and warm. Like most places, the resort would probably be at its best during off-peak periods where you don’t have to line up for the buffet or feel squeezed out at the pool.
