Arthur Phillip Motor Inn
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Cowes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 November 2012

We travel to Phillip Island at least once a year and would not stay anywhere else.
Mark and Janine always make us feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them to make our stay memorable.
Highly recommend this motel to everyone.
Easy drive to to anywhere on the Island.
Can't wait for our next stay.

Room Tip: Spa units well presented and great value

Very happy with our stay on the Arthur Phillip. Janine was extremely welcoming and made sure that we were warm and comfortable - it had been very cold on the beach watching the penguin parade in the middle of winter! The rooms are spotlessly clean and well-maintained and the motel is ideally situated to explore the whole of Phillip Island. The spa was a welcome facility, but a pity I didn't get a chance to use it. There is free WiFi (thank you!) and a fridge with toaster, kettle etc. We had great night's sleep and will happily return here as it offers excellent value for money.

Janine recommended Pino's in Cowes for dinner - great call! Fantastic pizzas and pastas and again, great value for money.

Stayed 2 nights in standard room. Very clean and owners very helpful. Meals at RSL nearby good but overpriced but normal for this region. Motel on outskirts of town so a good walk to water. 1st night woken at 6am by inconsiderate car racing fraternity also staying in motel. Next night had a great sleep, very quiet. Tip - if trailers towing race cars parked on grass opposite units find another option if you want to avoid an early start! Otherwise you could not do much better an staying here.

Room Tip: Avoid car racing fraternity if you don't want an early start.

This was a gem of a Motel recommended once again by Trip Advisor reviews.
Large clean rooms with extremely pleasant owners. The bed was very comfortable & there was a microwave oven & facilities for providing your own breakfast. There was a laundry free of charge and a dryer if needed. Parking was directly in front of your room with plenty of space and being only a ground floor, there was no lugging cases upstairs. We would highly recommend this Motel to anyone.

We were only going to stay for one night but extended it to two. If we'd had the time we would have stayed longer. It was a lovely motel and very clean. The room was quite large and the owner Janine was so pleasant to deal with. This is one motel we would recommend to anyone going to Phillip Island. There is no reason whatsoever to go anywhere else. Try it and you'll be hooked!

Great accommodation at a great price. Rooms were in great condition and the beds were comfortable. Janine was very helpful with directions and information. Even when we left something in the room, Janine when beyond expectations to get the item back to me. I high recommend this place to everyone.
