I stayed at the Coachman Motel and holiday units in the luxury spa unit. It was exactly as it was described and more. The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, the beds were very comfortable, luxury bedding, the spa was wonderful and each room was closed off by a door. It was very quiet even though they were booked out for the weekend. We were very close to the main strip of shops and cafes and a small walk away from the beach and pier, it is a central location and the price we paid was amazing for this wonderful experience. I am a very fussy person when it comes to hospitality, the staff were more than accomodating and friendly,there was also free wifi available in our room, check in and out was very quick and simple, I will definatly be staying here again, they made my weekend one of wonderful memories

The Coachman Motel and Holiday units gave us the most wonderful experience staying in Cowes at Philip Island. The luxury spa unit we booked was exactly as it was described and more. It was so clean, the beds were so comfortable with luxury bedding, the spa bath was wonderful. It was only a very short walk to the main strip of shops and cafes and to the beach, it was a very quick check in without complications and given tourist information without any hesitation, they made our stay a very happy and memorable one, I will definatly be coming back to stay with them 10 out of 10

We were staying with a group of friends and booked our room late. We paid $190.00 for a Delux Spa Suite. The room was spacious and clean but very outdated. Didn’t want to use the spa due to water restrictions in the area. The shower was over the spa so if you were an older visitor you may struggle entering and exiting your shower. The motel is close to cafes, beach and bars. We walked everywhere. Manager was friendly and welcoming.

Stayed here over the new year period as family was nearby. I stayed in a “spa suite” which is basically one large room with a queen size bed, a bench with mini fridge, sink and microwave and spa bathroom. Also brand new tv and DVD player and a very effective air conditioner (it was 40 degrees the day I arrived!). There was also one small table with two chairs. The bathroom is new as is the bed and furnishings and as such the room is fresh and has a new feeling to it despite the look of the outside of the buildings. Car parking is right outside the room. While the buildings themselves on site are old (there are three seperate buildings that make up this motel), the rooms have been refreshed and as such looks are deceiving. Give it a go! It is very reasonably priced. The location is absolutely perfect - a short, perhaps three minute walk to the beach (near the pier side) in one direction and not even a one minute walk to the shops and restaurants on the main road. Despite this, it is very quiet which made for a restful stay. James, the owner is lovely and welcoming and I was even able to check in early (12:30) and he gave me a call when the room was ready. There is room service daily which was lovely (no extra charge unlike some other hotels nearby which charge a cleaning fee if you want your room refreshed). I would return to The Coachman with no hesitation. ⛱🌴

Nice centrally-located motel, within walking distance to the main town. Friendly and helpful check-in staff. It's got everything you need in the room, cooking facilities, air con, heating etc. Wifi very good. The outside facilities (like the BBQ area) are a little run down, they need to be fixed up. My only issue was that it wasn't clean, i.e. there was a lot of dust around the entrance to the room and some inside. I think they need to focus a little more on cleanliness. However, the positives outweighed the negatives so I'd stay there again.
