High expectation but less value
Cleanliness, location, location
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.

Home feel, location, bed
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

Great Location and Lovely Hospitality
Convenient location, Nice hostess, Clean
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.
