A 10 minutes ride from Penguines Parade, close to the sea, many restaurants and different tourist attractions, this simple motel offers everything one needs. When we arrived on the rainy evening, we could watch a whole bunch of parrots looking for food on the lawn in front of the motel. On the way to watch penguins, we saw lots of...

Nice clean room. Quiet location, close to town. Just a suggestion - it would be handy to have some crockery and milk in the room rather than find out in the morning that they were available on request from reception. A bit inconvenient when you are in your pj,s Other than that would recommend.

Stayed a night to explore Philip Island. Owners are friendly and offered travel tips on attractions to see. Room was clean. Got upgraded to a spa room although we didnt really need a spa nor used it. Good value for money. Looks to be the best motel on the island and quite close to town stores and restaurants. Central location...

Stayed one night here. Motel was simple but has everything you need. Easy to locate with google map and to park, right outside the door. It's 15 min driving to the Penguin Parade and also a very short drive to restaurants around. Recommended!!

Clean and easy motel in Cowes on the main road. Friendly staff. Barely-functioning internet, so cannot recommend if you need to get any business done. $135 AUD for queen/single combo room. Recommended.

The service from Arthur Phillip Motor Inn was great, we arrived early (a few hours before check in) but our room was all ready and we were able to drop our bags off and go and explore the area. The room was nice, tidy, clean and comfortable. There was a hatch in the wardrobe and if you ordered room service...

We stayed here for 2 nights during Easter Holidays and really liked the place. It was very clean and convenient . Family oriented style . The reception staff was very friendly and told me to book my Penguin Parade tickets in advance when I did the accommodation. Lucky I did as she told me because the tickets were sold out...

We stayed here on a whim after travelling from the west side of Melbourne to see the penguin parade but didn't fancy driving back after, it doesn't look like we're the first to do this! Very friendly owners who were helpful in giving us details about the local area. It is just a 5-10 min walk into the town where...
