Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful stay at Woodbyne. Great location just a few minutes drive out of Cowes. The cabin was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Lovely comfortable beds and lots of things for the kids to do with a swimming pool, playground and lots of outdoor games to play. The grounds are very well maintained and you may even see some alpacas and native wildlife in the adjoining paddocks. Highly recommend 🤩

We spent a week at Woodbyne resort! Have stayed here many times before. Best location, everything is surrounded it! Very spacious and clean! A clean pool and bbq area! A washing machine (which helped heaps). Short drive to nobbies, chocolate factory and next door to wildlife park! Short walking stroll to the beach! There’s an outdoor chess and golf and other games at the front of the resort! Joyce helped us so much! And Zhijie was keeping everything spectacular at all times! Thank you Joyce and Zhijie we will be back for sure! We appreciate your hard work!

This is a great place to stay the cabins are clean and modern with great appliances and facilities. The pool is heated which is good for cooler weather. Staff were friendly. It is about a 10 minute drive to the Nobbies, Penguin parade and Grand Prix circuit. Would stay here again

I would suggest should you wish to make a complaint that is for all the public to see . You best get your facts correct before making such claims. English writing skills would be also a advantage. We don,t offer high Prizes we don,t offer any in fact. Guess your meaning prices. Well you stayed discount voucher so that is miss leading for a start. we do provide Kitchen utensils and many other things for your stay should these have not been in your cabin. One would normally come to reception and report this. So we do not tell you to go to the supermarket. Asking for credit card details upon check in is a standard legal practice in the accommodation industry. This is protection for the establishment should you not comply with the establishments terms and conditions of your stay with them. Something we also set out very clearly in the deal you purchased to stay with us. Our terms and conditions that you sign upon check in are not pages long and not in small writing . So we are not hiding them anywhere. They are set very clear and bold. Many of our policy,s are repeated and displayed in our cabins on the fridges as well as the guest information folder. So many of policy,s are made very clear in 3 visible locations Should you choose not to read them is at your discretion. We have a large outdoor pool which can not be missed. As well as a large BBQ area. Not sure where you were looking? Our pool is not maintained daily in winter for obvious reasons. As you will see here on Google we advertise it being closed in the winter months. The BBQ area is still maintained regularly but not often used again being winter. We have in the past supplied more crockery then whats required only to find more crockery was getting broken went missing or more of mess to clean up as in your case. Should there have been no cooking utensils as your stating.it would have been something you would brought to our attention straight away. We are having issues with the driveway currently as with recent heavy rain it has caused considerable amount of damage . As I am only the manager and not the owner as you state. I am working with the owner as quick as possible to fix this issue.

Nice and large place to stay, was pleasantly surprised at how big our cottage was. Very clean and well equipped also. Pool was right out our back door, and playground was also visible too so that was a plus. There are some slight safety issues with the playground (loose planks and nails sticking up). There was also an issue with ants taking over the kitchen on our first night, but once we were aware and didnt leave food out (even in sealed packets!) then that issue resolved itself. Overall a nice place to stay, and we'll likely be back

Thank you for your review glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes ants have been a issue due the very extreme dry conditions.Something beyond our control. Thank you for bringing up the concerns of the playground. It is something we are hoping to replace this year. Hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful cottage which was clean and so spacious. The staff were so accommodating and helpful. The accommodation was so clean and had all the mod cons you normally get when staying at more expensive hotels. The location of this accommodation was perfect, close to beaches, restaurants and all the activities Phillip Island has to offer. I will defiantly we staying here again and recommending Woodbyne Resort to all my family and friends. Thank you to the owner for everything!

Rooms very clean and spacious and lots of light. Games and activities outside were good. Very convenient having a restaurant on site meant we could just walk there, and the staff were very friendly. No traffic noise. Lovely setting with horses in the paddock next door.

Stayed at this resort with my two young grandsons on a spur of the moment overnight stay during the summer school holidays - weren't sure about the selection after reading some of the reviews, however there wasn't a lot available at that time of the year so little choice. However, what a surprise - the resort was well maintained, very clean with plenty of things for my 2 grandchildren to do - spent most of their time in a very clean, well maintained pool. The grounds were spotless and well maintained also. The indoor play area was under redevelopment so unfortunately it wasn't available for their use. 2 bedroom unit was spacious and clean, comfortable with all the basics supplied. Unbeknown to us, my youngest grandson had left behind his 2 favourite teddies under the bedclothes. Richard, the manager rang us when we were halfway home to tell us and arranged for them to be returned much to my grandson's relief. Would stay again.

Hi Kathy Thank you for making the choice to stay with us. So glad the grand kids enjoyed themselves. Yes the bistro is under some big refurbishments but it will be well worth the wait when it reopens. Thank for your review and look forward to seeing you again.

Overall the accommodation was good though a bit tired. Clean, with good amenities, 2 bedroom self catering accommodation in a quiet area. Easy to find and close to amenities. Good place to stay if visiting Penguin Island. Visited October 2017
