no seaview

very good location. just walk out to main street to the famous kafe kaos for breakfast. 5mins walk to the beach. easy to find location
Not too bad.. the exterior of the cottage could use some work though

Very good. No issues.

Location, Private, free internet
It was a very nice and relaxing trip away. We just wanted to get away from the city for the weekend. A one night stay was perfect. IT was very private and the staff/owners were great.

Beautiful room in an oasis of calm

Newly refurbished with very high quality fixtures and fittings; very welcoming reception and high quality service; excellent choice at breakfast, all cooked freshly.
although we very much enjoyed our stay the air conditioning was centrally controlled and turned off at night which made the rooms rather hot. t was very central for everything phillip island has to offer and the free courtesy bis to the track stops outside. very central for restaurants, shops.

Unclean, dingy, only suitable for budget traveller

The other rooms in the guesthouse
The main issue we had with this place was how it was advertised, versus what we experienced. We seen photos of lovely rooms, but the Seaside studio room was far from lovely. It was shockingly bad. There were cobwebs everywhere, the bathroom was built in a small room downstairs that was so low, we were almost hitting our head on it. The bed was uncomfortable and there was a slight musty smell throughout. The owner is very nice and helpful and if we were to stay longer, we would have complained and went for a room change and I'm sure he would have accommodated us.
