In the middle of the town and opposite the beach ; very pleasant room with comfortable bed ; able to prepare continental breakfast in the room

    We were warmly welcomed by Ting Ting our host who was very attentive throughout our stay. We had a great view of Bass Strait and the Penguin "CBD" from our room. The hotel is one block back from the ocean on a quiet street, so our room was very quiet.
    We would definitely stay here again if we are ever in Penguin or the surrounding area.

    Location is amazing and the view from room 1 upstairs was lovely.

    We specifically booked 2 rooms with fold out couches, as we are 4 single people. So this review is really a heads up for those needing extra fold out beds.

    The couches in rooms 1 & 5 are the type where the back folds down…. They are not beds and were ‘unsleepable’. They also don’t have linen to suit these couch beds.

    The regular beds were fine - quite comfy.

    The appliances could do with an upgrade, especially the toaster.

    Was”upgraded” to a hole in wall “bungalow” with bed in back closet with a bare bulb for light. Bunk beds in living room and front room w table. This spot is more suited to someone that needs a studio apartment for two weeks and is doing their own cooking. It’s not a vacation spot

    Room tip: Check out other rentals on the front street

    We stayed in room 8.
    one light in the living area wasn’t working
    the couches need updating as it is very uncomfortable
    my partner discovered a toilet roll under couch and dirt on carpet under couch.

    yes the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was quite adequate and there was sufficient kitchen stuff for our needs. Coffee table on its last legs.

    The staff were friendly. The location. was fantastic. Just an update. on some furniture and thorough spring clean and place will be good as new.
