    We were very glad that we chose this B&B for our stay on Phillip Island. Like everyone else we came to see the penguins (ultimate tour a bit disappointing) and spent two nights here. The hosts were very welcoming and the room very clean and...More

    Lovely B&B which we found whilst driving around Cowes looking for somewhere to stay before going to visit the penguins. Lucky we happened upon it! Friendly owners who made us a lovely coffee on arrival. Delicious breakfast. Room had just recently been renovated and was...More

    Thanks for taking the trouble to write a review Veg_Grower. We're glad you stumbled upon Holmwood and that you enjoyed the experience. As you noted, your room was indeed newly renovated. In fact, we renovated the entire guesthouse last year, keeping the original 1930's exterior...More

    We stayed for four nights and it was very good....the only downside was that the noise from one of the other rooms was annoying in the morning. Good breakfast and Judy was fantastic. Will stay there again.More

    This is a delightful story and I'm really pleased to have an opportunity to respond. Our reviewers were two young Swedish back-backers who decided the chilly Autumn night on Phillip Island was best suited to penguins. It was mid-evening and we were winding up a...More

    Reviewed 6 April 2013

    We stayed here for one night only, to see the pinguins. On hindsight we felt that we should have stayed another night as the island has much more to offer than "just" pinguins. We liked the B&B and the host: the whole atmosphere was welcoming...More
