Glen Isla House, Phillip Island

Our stay at Glen Isla House was perfect. We received a warm welcome and were provided with local information which was very useful for planning trips around the island and finding out about where some of the best places to eat/drink were. The surrounding gardens were beautiful and the room was excellent with some lovely touches added to give it a luxury feel. For us the location was great because we walked along the beach to cafes for breakfast in the morning and liked the 15 minute stroll to the centre in the evening for dinner. We would most definitely recommend Glen Isla House to others and would go back again.

Nice accommodation. Glen Isla is beautiful, comfortable and we had such a good time that we are now looking to bring our family there as well. We are grateful for being able to stay and will definitely stay again.
