“Pleasantly surprised & highly recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2010

Prior to arriving on Phillip Island we'd looked into accommodation via the Phillip Island website and this motel wasn't listed. It was only driving into Cowes that we came upon it. It looked new despite being built in 1998. We also saw that it was a block down from the RSL Club so that made it more appealing to us. And weren't we pleasantly surprised! Our very spacious room was one of only 12. There was a queen bed, king single bed, sofa, table and chairs, double-door wardrbobe, kitchette (microwave & toaster too) and lovely bathroom. The room is airy, fresh and modern. It's airconditioned and has big opening windows at the front. It's quiet and so clean! Parking was right at the door. The grounds are large and well-kept. The motel is owned and run by a lovely family and they're so friendly. There's no complaint whatsoever about the room or motel. There's no restaurant, but no need as I said, the RSL is a 5 minute walk and it's lovely. Meals were great and it was busy every night. A 5-10 minute drive in the other direction and you're in the heart of Cowes with all shopping and the water at the end of the street. Our 2 nights here were wonderful and we didn't want to leave. Will we be back? ... you bet ya!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2009

If you and your family thinking of visiting Cowes on your next weekend getaway then I would highly recommend the Arthur Phillip Motor inn. It may have cost a little more than those motels around and with very basic facilities (DVD optional) but It's a nice modern motel with friendly/helpful staff at the reception and 5 star cleanliness. Everything from the bed linen in the bedroom to bath towers in the bathroom, toilet, carpet etc.... it's the cleanest motel I've ever been to. It's cleanliness is in par or dare I say better than those of some of the so called 5 star rating hotels in town!
