The room was comfortable, clean and affordable, with a great breakfast counter, including a sink, microwave, toaster and kettle. the owners were very friendly and helpful. A great...

Strategically located. 5 mins walk to the shops and esplanade. 10~15mins drive to Penguin Parade/Nobbies. Well equipped apartment for 2 adults and 2 children. Comes with a well equipped kitchen and free continental breakfast. Spent 3 days 2 nights without any single complaints. This place is quiet and tranquil. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

We traveled to Cowes,Philip Island from Melbourne to attend a funeral and requested a earlier check-in. On arrival our room was ready. The heating in the room was wonderful on a very cold day. The trick is to turn it on as soon as you arrive.The rooms are very spacious and exceptionally clean from the bathroom to all the kitchen...

Besides that it was a Very nice place and staff is really helpful for place that we need to go. Near to penguin parade. I'm giving 4 stars because there is dust in mugs and stuff.

Stayed for a long weekend here and found the place to be very nice. We had looked at a few places and found them quite pricey for what we wanted so here was definitely value for money. We stayed in room 12 which was perfect for just the 2 of us. From the man at reception, to the cleaners, to...

A neat motel situated just 200 metres from the main strip of Cowes. Clean and comfortable room of a reasonable size. Didn't feel at all cramped. A small kitchenette with hot plates, microwave and sink. Ensuite was a good size. Continental breakfast (Kellogs cereal and 2 pieces of bread each for toast) included. Tea and coffee of course. Recommended.

I am a regular at the Coachman and have reviewed it previously, but the fact that we keep going back is a good enough reason to review it again. The place is clean, comfortable and reasonably priced, and most importantly on busy motor sporting weekends, is within easy walking distance of most places in Cowes. Well worth a look.

This motel is very strategically located in the heart of Cowes. Close to all amenities. In the morning we walked to the beachfront, continue to the main street where all the coffee shops are. IGA and Coles are nearby. Very convenient.
