Very quiet location and comfortable bed! We had just been through a string of hard beds and loud rooms, this place was a delight! We actually slept in we were so comfortable. Would recommend to everyone.

We choose this motel as we needed to sleep six people. The motel itself is pretty average. It is fairly old and while there is a pool we did not try it as the weather was cool. The two bedroom apartmentis spacious and suited our needs but when we used the spa bath the water had a decidely green colour.
The location is good and only 200m from the beach and about the same from a supermarket. A reasonable option for a stay.

We found this motel among all the ones around there and I must say that it has been a good choise. price has been good for the service. Room quite clean and wide. Staff is kind and suggested us a good restaurant. It was a dead period of the year and of the week but we've been satisfied with our experience. It's close to the penuine parade island, where we were coming from.
very good for one night!

My wife and daughter and I stayed 3 nights in Room 1 here last weekend and fully enjoyed our visit.

The room had a queen size bed and 2 singles. The website states maximum 3 people but I’m sure they would happily accept 4 for a small extra charge (or why have the other bed?).

The room was very clean, the bathroom lovely and recently rebuilt, the furnishings comfortable and adequate. The only negative we could find is that whilst they provide a toaster, there were no plates or cutlery. Standard jug, tea, coffee, and biscuits one expects in a motel were provided.

The reception staff were helpful and friendly and if you stay several days they will even allow free wi-fi, which should be the case as in most places in Asia but hard to find in Australian accommodation.

It’s just a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the centre of town.

We are happy to recommend this motel, the pricing is very reasonable and we will definitely choose to stay there if we return to Phillip Island.

We were just getting a little stale and decided to take a short break down at Phillip Island and after doing our Compulsory checks on tripadvisor reviews we decided to stay here and were definitely not disappointed. Booked deluxe queen room with spa and could not fault this spotlessly clean room, quiet, great location, very comfortable bed and the big breakfast was "HUGE" (and very yummy)

Room Tip: stayed in room 18 which is the last room and close to the pool which is closed after dark so was ver...

I booked here for a one night stay after reading other peoples high reviews. Being a clean freak myself i was not dissapointed. The room was immaculate. We had a King Spa room. The bed was so comfortable and the spa was excellent. I think their photos let the place down it looks even better in real life. Great location, it is an easy stroll into town.
