“Exceeded Underwhelmimg”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We stayed in the ground floor apartment for two nights and it was awful. This is the worst accomodation we stayed in during the whole of our 4 weeks travelling.
The bed dominated the room which had walls at all angles. Such a small floor area left room for a small round 'card' table, accommodating just two dinner plates and nothing else, and two small 'milking' stools. The only comfortable chairs were on the patio and it was too cold to sit outside.
The bathroom was 15 paces from the room along a corridor which passed the clear glass front door. It comprised of shower, toilet and handbasin in a room 1.6m square that lacked heating and any storage.
A thoroughly miserable stay at a seriously overpriced location.

We stayed at the Hilltop apartments whilst visiting Phillip Island. Really lovely apartment (The Spa apartment) and friendly welcome. Very spacious and excellent location for exploring Phillip Island. We had some noise from the apartment above but thats not the places fault.

Room Tip: Spa room was very nice.

This apartment was fabulous. Well appointed, spacious, everything you need and a nice welcome too. Very close to the Penguin Parade and Cowes for shopping. We were ready for a bit of r and r after driving and this place was perfect for that. Don't miss the penguins if you come here. Deserves an extra star!

I booked the Spa Apartment for my partners birthday. We love going away and just relaxing, and what a beautiful place to do just that! The man (Sorry I cant think of it right now) was just wonderful, he showed us around and then left us to relax and enjoy.
Our room was very clean and cosy, and it felt like home away from home.
The Spa was soo relaxing and we did not want to get out!
Our bed was super comfy and we slept like babies.
Also, the décor was superb! The artwork in our room was spectacular.
Location was good, just out of the main drag, but still close.

Our only downside would have to have been that we could hear the people staying above us walking around but we soon forgot about that.

Overall we would still give it a 10/10 and would definitely stay there again!!
Thank you for your hospitality Hilltop Apartments & See you soon!

Me and my partner booked a spa room apartment and we have to admit it was such a lovely and homely environment, we didn't have any trouble sleeping at night. The service is great! The room and toilet are spacious and clean. It's a great location as it was near Cowes, the beach and the penguin parade. The only minor problem was the cooking area isn't really design for cooking a lot of food, but we spent most of the time eating out during lunch, and we cooked simple dishes at night. So, it wasn't a big deal. Overall, if I would to go to Phillip island again, I would pick this place.

Reviewed 22 March 2013

This is a difficult review due to the fact that we were the only people staying at these apartments. We had the run of the top floor, so instead of having to share the huge kitchen, dining, lounge and verandah area with another couple, it was all ours for 2 nights. This was a very tastefully furnished apartment. Our bedroom door locked and the room was spacious and new looking. So we did have our own area if anyone else was staying. A car is essential. The road is busy, but the traffic stops early and a good night's sleep is possible. Cowes is close, less than 5 minutes, as is the RSL mind you nothing is far away on Phillip Island. Even if you're a chocoholic give the chocolate factory a miss....big dissapointment.
