We stayed overnight on our way home from Phillip Island & we found it to be good value & everything we needed. $5 each for a continental breakfast was exactly what we were looking for. It is situated in the centre of town & therefore are plenty of options for meals.

When we arrived there was only one room left which was more like a little apartment. It was lovely and clean. I am planning another visit with my sisters and elderly mother for 2 nights.

The room was in a good location and rather quiet as it was situated at the rear of the property. We booked it last minute for an overnight stay.

Stayed in one of the "budget" rooms and found it to be exceptionally nice! Clean, tidy and comfortable. Reasonably priced. The bed was comfy and the room well appointed. The hosts friendly and helpful. Best still it had a great seafood restaurant across the road. Would definitely stay there again.
