We really liked this hotel. Although a little basic it was spotless. The motel was well placed to visit the penguin parade and easy to find. Great wifi. The hotel was quiet at night time. Comfortable beds.

We went to Phillip island for a two days trip and we choose Seahorse motel, Cowes for one night stay. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The toilet was sealed after a cleaning after the previous using. We were four family members along with a six month old baby and found it pleasant to stay here. The room...

I stayed just one night recently passing through for business. I do find that Cowes accomodation can be quite expensive, so found this one online & was not disappointed. The owners were friendly & very accomodating. I had the 1st floor deluxe room which was HUGE. Bed was very comfortable, there was a large lounge suite & the bathroom was...

Great property, fantastic location, spotlessly clean, really well maintained, we loved it and will definitely stay there again. There was nothing not to like about the whole complex. We thought the last place we stayed at was good but this one leaves it for dead. An easy walk to the beach, shops etc so hardly any need to use the...

Top-quality accommodation seems difficult to find on Phillip Island; this was rated 1/11 on Trip Advisor. We had a 2-bed apartment in a quiet location but with easy access to the sights of the island, and with on-site parking; the apartment was spacious, adequately-equipped, clean and tidy, albeit slightly tired with just one bathroom (shower not great) and a bit...

Room was a good size for us as we booked the double size room. We ended up staying 2 nights instead of 1. The staff were very helpful in informing us of everything to do on the island, Was a great help in getting us booked in for the penguin parade.

We stayed in the Seahorse Motel for one night while we experienced the Penguin Parade. The owner was so friendly. When he found out we didn't have a warm jacket for the Penguin Parade he offered us one of his...thank goodness - it was cold! He was also very helpful with recommending places to eat. Definitely recommend this hotel!
