My room was spacious and clean and equipped with everything I needed (refrigerator, microwave, kettle etc). The location is quiet and about a 5 minute stroll to the beach at Cowes. I thought it was a little on the pricey side but I stayed over the Christmas/Boxing Day period and everywhere is expensive at that time of the year. Having said that I would not hesitate to return and stay at the Tropicana again.

The lady that checked us in on Sunday was extremely nice and very friendly. The unit was spotless and the location is superb. The beach is a few hundred meters at the end of the Rd, and you are walking distance to all the cafes and restaurants. Thanks very much.

Received a very negative impression right from the beginning of my stay. The male receptionist was very unwelcoming and unhelpful; he was unfriendly and almost rude. Everything was too much trouble. When I asked about breakfast he said it was possible but he would prefer that I went to the trouble of having breakfast elsewhere because businesses were finding things difficult due to the Covid situation. His attitude was hardly conducive to encouraging tourism! The accommodation was standard but somewhat over priced. I will be staying elsewhere on my next visit.

Hi Brian, I'm really sorry to hear that we did not meet your expections, I'm sorry that my husband came across and rude and unfriendly, Phillip Island has a small business community and possiable my husband was mearly suggesting that support across all businesses on the island is appricated, the one thing I have found since living in a small commiunty is the support that other show even the other Motels work together to support each other its not a competition. I can understand how this has come across to you and we will take the feedback on board. We do really work hard to give our guest a great stay and by your feedback we failed in your cicumstances, which we will learn from and do better next time, if your not willing to give us another try which i understand i hope you enjoy one of the other great businesses next time you visit phillip island
