Room is nice but it's not value of the money and dont even wifi in private room. Irresponsible reception, we called twice wanted to make my paymnt when checking out but the receptionist didnt come down and asked us just leave. after 9days we received email keep asking us to send them our credit card detail to process the charges of the night we stayed. How nonsense could this happen? I've done my part ask the staff to collect money but you refused to get down and ask me to do double work. wish you can improve your immature system or mayb others will just dont bother

Nice, Clean & Good location

A very clean hotel and very short driving distance to San Remo or other tourist attraction places like Chocolate Factory, Koala Conservation Centre, etc in Phillip Island. The staff was friendly and so kind of him recommending us the places to visit with a complimentary map of Phillip Island. The reception counter is opened only from 9am - 5pm but if you wish to check in late, they may leave your room key at the reception & no worries for early check out too! Internet/WIFI available but chargeable. Overall, we had a pleasant stay, thanks!

It was like a hotel. Everything was clean and tidy, nothing like a backpackers at all. The kitchen was well-furnished and we could use all the plates there. There was also a movie room and a table tennis table. On the walls were the tourist attractions on the island and the ways to get there. Except for the slightly high price, I’m contented with everything there :)

Very pleased with Agoda offering lower rates compared to booking directly through The Island. We are very satisfied with the clean rooms nicely designed rooms, large and newly refurbished bathrooms, kitchen and BBQ amenities offered there at the Island are all top notch. We did not utilise the TV room as we have a TV in our room. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen shall be the highlight with basic pantry ingredients such as oil, salt, pepper, flour, foils are all available for free (leftovers from previous travellers).. Will definitely recommend The Island to friends and family!
