As you sit under the verandah looking out to Glen Isla's beautiful gardens, it feels as though you are sitting in an setting of a Ralph Lauren photo shoot. Dotted with classic white buildings and surrounded by a manicured garden, it is hard to believe that you are not holidaying in a B&B somewhere in country France or England, but on Phillip Island. We travelled as a family and reserved two classic rooms. We enjoyed Madeleine's hospitality and appreciated the attention to detail that has been put into the design of the property and specifically, the rooms. The rooms were furnished tastefully - comfortable and traditional without being over the top. I liked the fact that the closet, mini fridge and tea/coffee making facilities had its own room which eliminates the noise from a humming fridge and keeps your luggage tucked away out of sight from your bedroom. Breakfast was delicious, with hot items made to order and a selection of juices, muffins and other continental items that you can help yourself to. Make the most of the experience by relaxing with a newspaper in hand on your verandah, take the direct path for a walk to the beach or sit in the garden with a cuppa.
