Was there for 1 night. 15 mins drive from Penguin Parade. Motel is in the main town of Philip Island with supermarket and restautants. Great choice for short stays. Owner was friendly, Room was clean with parking lot right in front of room. Only glitch was the water boiler should be maintained.

The staff were helpful about the penguin parade although told us they had only just arrived as relief managers so were still learning the area. The room was clean and rather large but that made it hard to heat. The decor was quite dated. The lack of hand towel or floor mat in the room was a negative. Had to...

Our family has been staying at this Motel for the last few years whenever we are down to the Phillip island. It is only a short drive to the Circuit and a short stroll down to the beach. Great way to get together and have a BBQ with our friends.
