Stayed here for one night recently and found it a great Motel, The rooms were spacious, clean and the front desk staff were very friendly and willing to help with what to do and visit in the area. Highly recommend the Arthur Phillip Motor Inn when staying on Phillip Island.

Stayed one night here. Motel was simple but has everything you need. Easy to locate with google map and to park, right outside the door. It's 15 min driving to the Penguin Parade and also a very short drive to restaurants around. Recommended!!

Clean and easy motel in Cowes on the main road. Friendly staff. Barely-functioning internet, so cannot recommend if you need to get any business done. $135 AUD for queen/single combo room. Recommended.

The service from Arthur Phillip Motor Inn was great, we arrived early (a few hours before check in) but our room was all ready and we were able to drop our bags off and go and explore the area. The room was nice, tidy, clean and comfortable. There was a hatch in the wardrobe and if you ordered room service...

We stayed here on a whim after travelling from the west side of Melbourne to see the penguin parade but didn't fancy driving back after, it doesn't look like we're the first to do this! Very friendly owners who were helpful in giving us details about the local area. It is just a 5-10 min walk into the town where...

Booked one night on the basis of favorable Trip Advisor reviews. Although this is an older motel style complex, it was updated / renovated and very well looked after, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff (owner?) was personable and helpful. We had come to see the “penguin parade” but, on her advice, we also went to The Nobbies nature...

Stayed at the motel for a long weekend and found the motel very clean and quiet. Located on the main road into Cowes, it is an easy 15 minute walk into the centre of Cowes and 5 minutes from the local RSL club which has a good restaurant. Highly recommended.
