Friendly greeting on arrival & departure, but the room; old style drab, needs painting, bathroom, needs scrub dirty silicone in shower base, vanity tired looking. It was very hot,the air cons in the room didn't really do much, fan over the bed,the pool was closed the cleaner hadn't been to clean it, the children's playground needs attention, as does the...

Friendly staff, nice room including a spa and large TV with DVD player. Comfortable bed and kitchen facilities including a microwave, plates and utensils. Free DVD library at reception. Close to shops, the bay and the beach.

Was truly an eye opener and would have been poor value for the money if it was free which amazingly it wasn't. We booked and payed for this place several months prior to traveling. Huge disappointment and we were not expecting much. Place was dirty dead flies and bird poo funny smells and the decor could be described as op...

I stayed here for one night just after New Years Eve. After reading reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect..but it wasn't what I was expecting at all. The room is slightly outdated but all that would be required is a tin of paint and modern sheets. Everything you will need is here! I would definitely stay here...

This is a cheap accommodation option for a one night stay near Phillip Island. Room was date but clean. Convenient location for visiting the sites San Remo and the Island have to offer. Free wifi was a bit sketchy.Found it easier to tether laptop to my phone.

You get what you pay for.We paid $89 for the night which was$89 too much. There was no toaster no phone no heating and no one at the front desk all day or night. If I hadn't already paid for it on line we wouldn't have stayed. The bed was rock hard and same with the pillows. The shower door...

Booked this after a long days work, just looking for a convenient motel, & didn't have time to check trip advisor. What a shame, the room would be decent value at $80, but for the $115 I was charged ( due to being a Friday, price gouging had kicked in) This was so overpriced as to being unjustifiable. No Toaster,...

We choose to stay here as it was convenient to see the penguin parade. However, there was no one to check us in, the room was left unlocked for us to just walk in which was a bit worrying. The room itself was a bit cramped and very dated, the kitchen wasn't cleaned to a high standard and there were...

Let me first say, yes this does look exactly like one of those old 80s movies motel 6. But for what it lacks in modern, it makes up with convenience. Close enough to all the necessities and a short trip to Cowes or Phillip Island Race Circuit. The cost was a little high but not sure if this was due...
