Clifftop was the perfect place to stay on Phillips Island. The room was lovely, spacious with a very comfortable bed as well as a fantastic view of the Ocean! The owner was wonderful to work with! And the staff was friendly and helpful. It is located 10 minutes from town, the Penguin parade and the other tourist attractions. I highly... More

I had another enjoyable stay on Smiths Beach. I travel a lot and my standards are v high, so it's always a pleasure to return somewhere and not be disappointed! This place is not a 'standard' place to stay, the accommodation (room, linen, bed, view) is top quality, but the style of service and common areas are like no ordinary... More

We came here for two nights on our honeymoon. Rachel and Helen were wonderful hosts! They helped us find good places to eat, offered us tips, and even offered blankets for going out to see the Penguin Parade. The view was astounding! You can see Smiths Beach right out the window, and it's just a short path from the backyard... More

Spent one night here with family and friends. Awesome stay! Too short though. There's a shortcut beach access too. Lovely views. Almost didn't want to go out. I could have stayed in the room and just enjoyed the view from the room. Breakfast was good too. There's a billiard table for you to use.

A huge thank you to Rachel, Helen and Sam for their amazing hospitality throughout our 2 night stay. The property is wonderfully secluded and the perfect place to either unwind or explore sleepy Phillip Island. The rooms are private, warm and have everything you need for a bit of R & R... I'd give it 6 stars if I could.... More

I returned from a whirlwind 7 day trip in NYC last Thursday at 7am, and with the "fog" from the BIG city still whirling in my head I needed some good 'ol Aussie open space, dramatic views and that wholesome quiet that recharges one's soul.

My partner and I recently stayed in the spa suite at Clifftop. Helen greeted us and was kind enough to offer a bottle of wine when she heard that I was a serving military member. We felt instantly at home and were shown to our beautiful, very private spa suite. Supper was quintessential hot winter soup and toasted sandwiches. With... More

This was a last minute booking as we were travelling to Smiths Beach for a friend's birthday. What a great find! Lovely room with a great view. The owners were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had the continental breakfast for 2, which was really good. Would highly recommend this accomodation.
