We booked on line directly and had quick email confirmation. We arrived in Cowes by coach and walked a short block down to the Coachman motel. We were greeted and given a room quickly and then the owner helped us get our tour organized for the time we had on the island. We loved our room. It was fully equipped...

The Coachman Motel is a pretty standard motel. It's nothing flash, that's for sure, but it did the job. The gentlemen on the front desk was welcoming. It's in close proximity to the main street and beach. We found the bed to be too soft, constantly rolling into the middle and the continental breakfast was very sparse for two people....

My family and I stayed in room 16 which is in desperate need of a facelift... lino in bathroom split and lifted posing a trip hazard, spa bath was that old that we didn't risk using it, curtains in bathroom had holes in them, the cover on bed had a few small stains and the free wifi didn't work. Needless...

3 days in Cowes in winter!!! I stayed @ The Coachman Motel with my daughter & 2&1/2 year old grandson. The location of this motel is excellent- close to shops & the beach & it was quiet. Our 2 bedroom unit was perfect for our needs- a kitchen with full size fridge, hot plates & microwave. The owners were attentive...

Decided to stay here one night with my partner as a last minute thing. Couldn't have been happier, we had a queen bed with a spa and the room was lovely and modern and extremely clean which was impressive compared to other last minute places we have stayed. The only downside was that there were a number of ants coming...

We booked a luxury spa hotel. It was basically the size of a normal tiny hotel room.. We were really disappointed. The pictures made it look spacious but it definitely wasn't and DEFINITELY not worth $190 a night, how outrageous! The spa was similarly tiny. We were provided with no kitchenette, no continental breakfast, no meals included at all. The...

This is the third time that we have stayed at the Coachman and it is a convenient spot for the town restaurants and waterfront. It is always difficult to secure accommodation on the main motor sporting weekends on Phillip Island and the Coachman is worth a look. Due to most unfortunate circumstances the management has changed in the last few...
