      Had an great time here, very relaxing, and our host Ian was sensational, gave us a rundown and made us feel at home with plenty of suggestions and activities to do during our stay. Beautiful property and so close to the beach you could ask for more 👌

      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.

      Excellent boutique hotel with lovely host!

      The stay was beyond pleasant. The host and service was excellent and it was a big bonus having the hotel receive us late because of delayed flight and travel time. They where a privatized boutique hotel with early check in but host organized late check in for us due to complications with our travel. This family owned hotel is one of the nicest me and my spouse have stayed at and we had such a nice experience. Would recommend this to everyone.
