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.

We stayed at Phillip Island Apartments on Thompson. We found the Townhouse beautiful and spacious,only thing was a loud ticking all night coming from somewhere and a few bugs in our bed.

Apartment was clean and tidy but no clean towels or rubbish/bin emptying done throughout our 3 day stay. The shower was also dangerous as it would jump from freezing cold to scalding hot frequently. We were in room 22 which had nice views of the ocean and the location is very close to everything in Cowes
