We may have been fortunate but the Victorian weather was absolutely picture perfect which made our 2 night stay so much more enjoyable. The reception was friendly and we were given a nice room close to the guest laundry facilities which made doing some much needed washing a painless experience. We were advised beforehand that there were no electrical drying...

Stayed one night. Room clean and comfortable, bathroom adequate, but did not like the location of the Spa bath within the bedroom. Parking is secure - well off road with sufficient room for car trailers. WiFi is free. Within walking distance of the RSL and restaurants/pubs in town. Rooms are well insulated - little noise from adjoining rooms and very...

A group of nine of us Kiwis stayed here, some for 9 nights for the official test/race weekend, and some for just the race weekend. We had four units between us. We stay here every year. Janine and Mark are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The units are always clean, and they are roomy with both a kitchen...

I spent one night at this motel. The room is pretty much a standard motel room, with nothing much to distinguish it from any of hundreds of motels all over the world although it was probably larger than a lot of other. Mine had a queen bed, a single bed, a small couch and a small table with 2 chairs....

A terrific place to stay in the centre of town. Rooms are very spacious and very clean. The owners are lovely friendly people. Easy walking distance to all that Cowes offers and easy to get back on the main road to get to the destinations around the island further afield. Would definitely return.

We have just returned from an overnight stay in Cowes. We chose the Arthur Phillip Motor Inn after reading other reviews. On arrival we met Janine, the proprietor. Janine was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us information regarding the Penguin Parade, a local attraction, and suggested we book our tickets. If not for that suggestion, we would have missed...

We stayed for 2 nights and our room was clean and comfy and central to most of the things we wanted to see on Phillip Island. Staff was friendly at booking. Rooms are a decent size, back a bit from the street and parking is in front of the rooms (normal). Room service is available although we didn't use it....

Stayed for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised at how big the rooms are. Management extremely friendly and helpful. A 5 minute walk to R S L and 10 to 15 min walk to Cowes shops and restaurants. Plenty of tea, coffee and sugar supplied and rooms cleaned every day even on the Grand Final public holiday day.
