Phil was a wonderful host. Very personable, happy to chat to all his guests and made everyone feel very welcome. Food was excellent. Drinks even better. Phil has some great cocktail making skills. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway. Well done Phil.

What an amazing place for a wedding, Phil and his team work so hard to make everything right for the big day. We arrived on the Friday with the bride to be and the groom and had a lovely lunch and evening meal on the verandah. The en-suite cabins are basic but are clean and there are toiletries, tea making...

We booked French Island Eco Inn for 12 people. We stayed in two of the cabins and the dorm room. Rooms were fantastic with amazing views, and the dorm room was so spacious! As well as the rooms, we also booked dinner and the murder mystery. For $25, we got three courses which were all equally as delicious, and another...

Spent NYE 2015 on French Island and stayed at the Eco Inn. The service was terrific and the food was 5 Start quality. The owner Phil Bock was very accommodating and friendly. The nature walks and koalas were very nice. We even jumped off the nearby jetty for a swim. Very peaceful for those who wish to get away from...

French Island is amazing. Everyone should go. Without looking very hard, my partner and I counted eleven koalas during our three days there. Eight of these were lolling around on the property of French Island Eco Inn. We saw a mum koala and a baby too. Cuteness overload. Getting there was long but not difficult. We decided to take the...

French Island is so close, yet seems a world away from the rush and bustle of the mainland when you are there. A short 15 min ferry trip from Stony Point to Tankerton is all it takes, and the French Island Eco Inn is a short 500m walk from the ferry - in fact, it's the most conveniently located accommodation...

Considered the option of staying on French Island overnight, rather than going on a day trip from Melbourne, stumbled upon the French Island Eco Inn on the internet, phoned up, found out a cabin was available and spontaneously booked it. Excellent choice. The location is unparalleled: perched on a hill near Tankerton jetty, the Inn offers million dollar views in...

we discovered this place by accident on the long weekend. It was recommended by Vic parks. It was the perfect solution for us to use our tent and be surrounded by some luxury such as amenities and a lovely warm restaurant For dinner and breakfast. The dining room has a wonderful atmosphere. The owner and his staff are very warm...

We had a great stay on French Island - would recommend it for anyone interested in hiking, bike riding, birdwatching, wildlife or just getting away from the city for a complete break. Phil was a wonderful host, we were picked up from the ferry, had a great meal and got to try out the new power assisted bikes! Log fire...
