Stayed in January school holidays. The room was a pleasant surprise. Super clean, well presented and obviously recently renovated. The location is great, walking distance to everything in town and the beach is not far away.

Lovely friendly checkin and check out. We will be back

I know I have reviewed the Seahorse Motel before but really, I cannot rate it any higher. This is the only place we stay in when we visit Phillip Island. The amazing hosts Catherine and Lino are so friendly, happy, genuine and greet you by name. They have plenty of information available at reception with things to do. They know I have my favourite room to stay in so everything is ready when I arrive to check in. The room is immaculate, airy, modern, comfortable. Bed and pillows are comfy, the bathroom and shower is spotless with everything you need. Coffee/tea/biscuits and a bar fridge available and clean towels and bed linen. Fabulous air conditioning, it was very comfortable for those hot days we stayed there. The wonderful cleaners who come in everyday and top up the coffee/sugar, make the bed, leave fresh towels and even vacuum were very much appreciated. I feel safe leaving personal items out as I know I can trust them. The grounds are immaculate and well maintained with a wonderful playground for children and the most divine pool which we used everyday. We had a good night sleep as it's quiet yet so close to the beach and shops, cafes etc. Not far from attractions such as the Penguin Parade, Amaze"n"things. They have also upgraded their internet to NBN so the wifi is amazing and super fast. No drop outs and being booted off. Thanks again for having us. It feels like we are coming home when we come.

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Christmas and Boxing Day weekend and had a one bedroom suite for our stay.

We were pleasantly surprised that the room was bigger than the pictures suggested. There was a living room with 2 single beds and kitchenette to the side and there was a separate bedroom with an attached bath.

The room was neat and tidy. The kitchen was well equipped allowing us to fix a couple of meals when all shops were shut down for Christmas. There is a small play area for the kids and a swimming pool. We used all facilities and enjoyed our stay.

This is walking distance from Erehwon Point park, Cowes pier and all the shops in the vicinity of Cowes pier.

Great location in the heart of Cowes with walking distance to all shops, eateries and beaches. Cosy, comfortable and clean accommodation. Check in was a breeze and staff were very helpful. Katherine at reception attended to any needs and provided great information. Beds were firm and comfortable. Solar heated pool on site although mever used it as we spent our time at Silver Leaves beach. Thanks for a fantastic couple of days. Definitely recommend.

Motel is well situated in cowes. Easy wslking to beach and town centre. Lots of restaurants and 3 large supermarkets if you want to self cater. All you could need for overnight stop is at this motel. pleasant welcome at reception. Drive up to parking right outside your room. Clean room and bathroom with good shower, with nice toiletries. There is a toaster in the main room, kettle and crockery. Fridge with milk in. A few biscuits too. Bed was comfy. BBQ outside. Swimming Pool. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend.
