The building is unique and marketed as boutique however the room we had was small and dark and felt like a room at home rather than a hotel. Will be nicer if a 3 couples will rent the whole place. The owners are really nice but to me it's not really value for money.

Ok but don't follow the GPS as it will lead you across the island. Should call them and ask for their actual address in Philip Island

The Castle was perfect for our one night stay in Phillip Island. The location is literally around the corner from the beach and shops as well as a very short drive to other attractions on the island (penguin parade etc). Jenni was very hospitable and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. The room we stayed in had a nice, homey feel to it, very comfortable.

Lovely large Apartments next to the Beach

spacious, quiet, free wifi and friendly staff

This is a lovely converted house. My room upstairs had a large living room with balcony. On the balcony was a hot tub which I didn't have a chance to use. The bathroom is spacious with a large walk in shower but a small bath for someone of 6"5. The place is a little tired, but this us a small niggle in an overall lovely stay.

Great location

Close to everything.

The Castle is a beautiful boutique style hotel in a quiet street only 2 blocks from the shopping and approx 100 metres to the beach. The owners are really lovely and you wouldn't even know there was anybody else staying at the hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated whether it be the bedroom, living room or courtyard.
