Nearing the end of our road trip from Sydney, we were looking for somewhere 'boutique & quiet on Phillip Island to contrast against our final couple of nights in a big hotel in the centre of Melbourne. I can't remember where I came across Clifftop, but I am so glad I did. They were helpful from the off, emailing suggestions...

This hotel is amazing! The views, wildlife, owner, breakfast, comfort. Just can't fault it. Would definitely recommend & stay there again. The rooms were very comfortable and everything was provided. Was just amazing to go to bed listening to the sea & waking up to the sound of the sea. Thank you Helen Love from Helen & Colin (UK)

The mother-daughter Dafners are wonderful hosts providing personal service. A great view of the beach and the wallabies including teaching their joey added to the delight. The two connecting rooms and balconies allowed us privacy but also for the family to stay together.
