Woodbyne Resort
Ranked #3 of 19 Speciality Lodging in Cowes
Reviewed 28 December 2011

We stayed at Woodbyne Cottages for a short day period and thought the facilities were a little bit tired looking and very basic. The bedding was not adequate, so if you decide to stay there when the weather is cooler, make sure you take an extra doona. The pillows were rock hard and the beds were uncomfortable.

Also upon arrival, we thought we could sit down for a cup of coffee. No milk!! Not even a little 250ml carton to get you started. The owners of this operation must work on a very tight budget. This is definately a 'no frills' establishment.

The playground for the kids is very tired and old looking and our children were not interested in playing in the indoor play centre.

I would not recommend this place to any of my friends as it is priced quite high for a below average place to stay. I have stayed in cabins in caravan parks which had better facilities than Woodbyne Cottages.

Very well presented, very clean, relatively new and freshly painted self-contained portable-like cottages. Kitchen adequate and were suprised by the amount of cupboard space, the fully equipped laundry and there was even a bath great for small children. Comfortable beds slept very well. Basic amenities for a self-contained family holiday. Each unit has their own carport immediately next to the cottage also great for accessiblity and packing kids etc. Great gazebo with bbq facilities, an adventure playground, inground pool with slide and also a really lovely games area set amongst a gorgeous secret garden. Expansive grassed lawn areas to play and restaurant on site with an indoor playground which is great for young families who would rather not have to drive into town. Found the food was very ordinary and limited choices for the prices! ie: frozen nuggets, calamari, chips and the burgers are overpriced for what they are....el blando.
Overall a great place to stay for a brief or extendended holiday at Phillip Island a short distance from the main town and excellent value compared to many overpriced and daggy hotels on the Island.
