The first odd thing is that you check-in and pick keys to your room from a bottle shop nearby. The second odd thing is that your room/apartment, or whatever you may want to call it, looks from the outside like a marine container. However when you enter it, then it looks reasonably large with comfortable beds. The third odd thing...

Thanks so much for providing such valuable feedback. We do apologise if you were caught off guard by our check in location. Our online information does detail that check in is through our Thirsty Camel Bottle Shop. We use this process as the Bottle Shop is located closest to the motel units & it ensures that our customers are not...

I stayed here for two nights as part of a driving holiday from Melbourne to Sydney and wanted to explore Phillip Island. As mentioned in another revue, you collect the key from the bottle shop (handy to stock up the room fridge) and then its only a few metres away to park in front of your room. I also had...

We stayed at the San Remo for one night and were very disappointed. We stayed in a separate small unit beside the building which I assume was the hotel as well. Although the bathroom and room were clean, and the kitchenette was simply equipped, the freezer part of the small fridge needed a major defrosting. The apartment needs some major...

We found this motel during a road trip to south Australia - we wanted to visit Phillip Island and this motel was in a perfect location. It was really well priced and great quality. The room had lots of space and had everything we needed. Yes you need to pick up the key from the bottle shop but this is...

Busy night and service was good. Mixed experience with meals. One steak was cold, second with surf and turf was spoilt by being flooded with creamy sauce .. however the lamb backstap was well cooked and tasty and the seafood basket was delightful.

The room was very big. We stayed one night for the Penguins Parade. Very good location. The restaurant was still open after we returned from the Parade. Supermarket was a stone's throw away. Very convenient. No Wifi though.

The potential for this Hotel/Motel is there but it needs more work. The reception is poor, it is at liquor store. How a hotel doesn´t offer wifi internet in the room? It is just unacceptable.Another negative point: there are many ants in the room. Considering the tariff I would have expected a better quality accommodation but it's location was good....

Picked key up at bottle shop, no problem to check in early. Didn't really see staff other than on this occasion as left early and put key in box.

The service in this motel is outstanding. After hours you pick up the key at the bottle shop and what fabulous service. Polite, courteous and very very obliging. What a refreshing change to most places. The rooms here are huge and you would go a long way to find such a clean establishment. We booked for 2 nights but the...
