Apartment was easy to find with complimentary parking. Rooms were really clean and welcoming with 2 heater Installed bathrooms (1 shower & 1 bathtub) however the toilet was awkward as it was in the middle of the 2 bathrooms thus not accessible when both bathrooms are in use. Toiletries, kitchen utensils, cutleries, tea & coffee and most amenities were all...

Very easy to find and good location since it is very close to Woolworth. We came very late after watching penguins. The key of our room was just in the envelope outside of the reception. The room was good and everything looked quite new. But it is not an easy job to move all luggage to the second floor. >_<...

My partner and I stayed here for the June long weekend and we were not disappointed. Great location within walking distance to shops, cafe's and the beach. Our apartment was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. Perfect for families and couples. We will definitely be returning :)

These apartments are well located , a short walk from the main street of Cowes and a short drive from all the attractions of Phillip Island. They present as '4 star' from the outside, but inside are very poorly finished - and more importantly have very poor sound insulation. On our first night, I was awoken before 4 am by...

We spent one night here when we went to see the Penguin Parade in March. PIA is a large accommodation block with apartments on three floors. Ours was on the ground, overlooking the pool. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and had very comfortable beds. It is 500m from the beach and in walking distance of supermarkets, bottle shops and...

We stayed at the Oceanic on Thompson Apartments and they are large and roomy. 2 Bedrooms with full kitchen. Access up stairs is very difficult for anyone carrying suitcases as no lifts ( or not that we could find, so if any not signed at all). Not a great view apart from windows as you look over industrial properties, but...

We recently spent 2 nights at the PIA and were incredibly happy with our accommodation. We rented a two bed room apartment which was spacious, clean and family friendly. The staff were very friendly and the unit was well equiped. Staying at the PIA certainly made out stay at Phillip Island alot more enjoyable and memorable.
