As we were driving in, Rachel called to say she was leaving the property but the keys were left in the room. There was supposed to be a cheese platter and champagne upon arrival, but we walked in to a cold room without any cheese or champagne, let alone any milk for us to make a coffee. The room was...

My partner and I stayed three nights and couldn't have asked for a more perfect quiet weekend away. Owners Paul and Rachel were lovely and their service was excellent. The three accommodation units are lovely and private and located about 3 mins drive from a really nice quiet beach far from the busy overcrowded beaches in Cowes. The open plan...

We had booked to arrive on Saturday, once we got to the place there was no one there and no one was picking up the phone. We went into the...

Paul cancelled a cooking class & accommodation at the last minute for 2 then flatly refused to refund the money which he took in full not just a deposit. I had to contact consumer affairs, threaten with VCAT then finally got the money back via the bank through credit card charge back. Echo Holly.. Dishonest, disorganised and amazed someone like...

I cannot believe how this man stays in business. He repeatedly promised to honour our purchase, yet neglected to do so. I don't know how many people this man, Paul has ripped off but warning to everyone, do not hand over a cent to him and his corrupt business. What an embarrassment to Phillip Island.

The accommodation is clean, comfortable with modern decor, up to date facilities and amenities. I have stayed in many places and I would recommend to friends for a very pleasurable weekend getaway. The breakfast was...

We stayed at Spice Island years ago when it was just opened and stayed again this year and we were very satisfied. Rachel and Paul are great hosts and their easygoing manner makes you feel very welcome and relaxed. Rooms are nice and clean and beds are also very comfortable and you get good very good sleep there. Last time...

We were really curious to see how Spice Island stacked up! Before we went it had 2 excellent, 2 very good, 2 terrible and 2 poor reviews. I am going to have to sit on the fence here and say it was average. Firstly the place is signed from the outside, nor is it exactly clear what part of the...
