We came here for dinner. Beautiful view, clean and open aesthetic, and playroom for the kids. Service was impeccable and food was SO good. (We had the mussel pasta, calamari and fried cauliflower) 100% recommend coming here!

Dinner on a Friday night couldn't have been better! The Parma, spicy prawns and cheeseburger were delicious and service was fast! We ordered drinks and while the bar tender was getting another bottle for me three staff asked if I was being served. I've never been to an establishment on a Friday night and had that level of service. The location is literally the best you could ask for. The pool tables were $3.25 per game which I personally feel is a bit much considering you're buying drinks while playing so there's money being made regardless but other than that it was a great experience. So great that we went back for lunch on a Saturday. Bucket of prawns (10) for $30... I thought that was a bit steep but the generous serving of sauce and 9/10 delicious prawns convinced me it was worth it. My partner ordered the cheeseburger again but this time we weren't as happy with it as the onions were overpowering and bitter. It was the only meal we didn't finish. Overall, staff was friendly and attentive, food was great and we will be returning to this establishment when we visit Phillip island again.

Great location over looking the water. During our summer stay this was our go to as there were 2 giant jumping castles as well as theatre room for the kids upstairs. Mum and dad were able to enjoy a drink together during daylight hours without being hassled by the kids.

We haven't stayed, rather pop in for a drink as we walk past. Great location, food reasonably priced, full bar. Have tried wood fired pizza, very nice. Good variety of pub meals on menu. Most importantly, dog friendly on balcony.

Would not recommend, wanted to love this hotel but couldn't. Rooms are very dated, dirty, moldy shower curtains, cob webs in bathrooms. Tried to eat at the pub attached to the hotel but was told no modifications allowed to the food... even if it's an allergy. I simply wanted no cheese/dairy on my sandwich and they could not make that concession. Very odd. The manager Tammy could not care less, was very unsatisfied with how our group was treated and left to eat down the street. Would highly recommend staying elsewhere! Really disappointed with the whole experience.

Rooms were clean, comfy beds.
Check in ladies were friendly, funny and welcoming. service was excellent
Great location right on the beach front.
Lunch and dinner at the bistro -that place is fabulous, excellent service again, food was well priced and very good. Great atmosphere , plenty of security onsite. Overall fantastic stay and will be back again.

Restaurant - The food wasn't the best we've all had. Be prepared to go up & collect your food once it is ready.

Hotel - We stayed in a 2 bedroom Bayview room. The photos were very different to the actual room, the room definitely needed some renovations, however it was fine for one night. Hotel is right across from the beach and close to the Main Street. There's also quite a few sets of stairs, they're also quite dangerous when they're wet.
The beds were very comfy.
The staff were helpful when we saw that their website was cheaper than the website we used to book.
Unfortunate that the smoking area is right near some of the rooms - loud drunk people also gravitated to this area.

Great location, but that's already it. There were loud, drunk people at night and no security on side. Couldn't sleep between midnight and 3am. Was told I could've called police. Well... I guess that's correct, but I don't see responsibility for other guests behavior with me. Rooms were old. Somewhat clean, but not as nice as they look on the photos. Didn't feel save at all and couldn't wait to leave this place.

Room had very dirty floors (not vacuumed), toilet had a stale pee smell, pee on toilet seat when arrived, rubbish in the bins on arrival, cups and wine glasses very dusty, tiles cracked in bathroom, light switch broken. Customer service was very welcoming and friendly but the room cleanliness let them down. Location was great. Right on the water. Easy booking process.

The reception people were great and the bed was comfortable.
There was an awful smoke smell in the room and they couldn't change cause booked out, they did give us some scent to mask it a little but was overwhelming.
The rooms are very noisy whether it's drunk people getting home or the traffic.
Room was spacious shower had good pressure.

What a disappointing family budget room! Cleanliness of the room was an issue for us - clumps of dust under the bathroom sink, cobwebs hanging down from the ceiling, a couple of teabags were already ripped open, cups and plates dirty. Our two young children couldn't sleep all night due to the constant noise of loud, inconsiderate drunk people until the early hours of the morning. When we asked reception for a room change, we were immediately refused with the response being that they were 'fully booked' even though we saw that there were other rooms available on the website. We couldn't wait to leave on the day of checkout. We love Phillip island but definitely not returning to North pier hotel again!

We stayed here for one night in room 103. When we arrived the lady at reception was friendly and welcoming. We travel a fair bit and usually choose places in this price range. Honestly the north pier hotel has been fabulous for the price it sits in. The room was spacious, clean and welcoming. The bed was honestly by far the most comfortable bed we have slept in and everything was spotlessly clean. I even looked at the mattress brand so I can upgrade ours at home to this it was that comfortable. Restaurant in the facility was not only super handy but also really good value for money with good size delicious meals.
We will definitely stay again when in Philip island.
Well done to North pier hotel.
Enjoyable stay.

Make no mistake she is an older Hotel. BUT our room 310 was clean and spacious and had a lovely water view. Didn't eat there but well priced drinks and a great atmosphere. Would certainly stay again.

Great for Easter Saturday dinner. Bit of a wait for a table as there was no bookings but got there in the end. Great play area upstairs for the kids to keep them busy. Porterhouse was the best pub steak iv had in some time. Tap beer selection bit underwhelming but you have to consider the location

We had a great stay at North Pier Hotel.
We had originally made the booking in September but due to our car breaking down we weren't able to make our reservation. Reception were more then happy to give us a credit. We were finally able to make it down to Phillip island this weekend. We had and amazing view on the bottom floor with a huge spa bath, our daughters absolutely loved it. After a big day of exploring our girls were very thankful to have the pub literally on our door step. Meals were great and the play room is impressive.
Rooms are dated but very clean.
We would not hesitate staying at the North Pier again.

We went for a group dinner on a busy Thursday night. I ordered the ancient grain salad and added fried tofu. It was so delicious, fresh and a massive portion. Great value for money. My friends ordered the Barramundi and are still talking about it today (in a good way). Recommend for a nice relaxed vibe.

We ate at an evening meal (on a public holiday) at the venue, which was well 'packed out' both inside and out. They were short staffed but still managed to get the meals out in good time. The meals were tasty and of a fair portion size. Live music plays and there is an extensive bar (order and pay at the bar); security is onsite at the access points. Restrooms located inside the building for patron use. Dogs permitted in the outside area.

It was exactly what we needed it to be. The location was perfect, a very short walk to the beach and very close to the restaurants and shopping strips of Thompson Ave. The price was very affordable for our student-sized budget. And the staff were very friendly and helpful, and made sure we were safe. Definitely coming back next time I want to stay at Phillip Island.

The North Pier Hotel is an excellent location on the esplanade of Cowes for exploring Phillip Island. Just a stone's throw across from the main street with access to shops, supermarkets, and lovely cafes. The hotel is located just a short walk from the beach and ferry terminal. The location is simply amazing with a great ocean view, and is handy for the penguin parade. It was my first visit to Philip island, and we stayed for 2 nights. Good value for money. We stayed in the Ocean View Guest suite with a balcony to sit out and see the ocean. The room was spacious, clean, and tidy, and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly, and welcoming. It was an excellent experience, love staying at the North Pier hotel.

Enjoyed the stay. Great location as it's close to everything. A good room for a couple and two kids. The bay view room was lovely. Pub also had a fantastic vibe and outdoor seating perfect for sunny days. Self service; Order meals to collect when your buzzer goes off and go to the bar to get drinks. It would be too busy for table service.

I had a great stay at North Pier Hotel earlier this week, the property is in a great location on the esplanade and the views from my room were stunning. My room was large, clean and the bed really comfortable with a pillow top mattress and comfortable pillows (which can be rare to find in hotels). The staff were lovely and really welcoming too. I read a few negative reviews prior to staying which had me a little nervous, but I had a great stay. I highly recommend paying that little bit extra to book a Bay View room, they all look to have either a balcony or courtyard and are a very generous size.

Good place for holiday, just lack of customer service, such as I dint know that we spent so much on food in the hotel restaurant but we need to go and collect our food from the counter,even small busy bar do not do that. Moving on the hotel has jumping castle upstairs which was fun for kids but we have been here twice there is a cinema room I guess that never been operated no any sign of any movies and I think it's just for show/display. We love our bay view room,that was the Good highlights about this hotel, rooms are very clean,beds are good. Just can't seem to find rubbish bins outside of rooms or around the block so hard to look for one. Which to see more friendly smiling face at the main hotel reception if possible. But all around the hotel is very clean. We love our stay here will come again soon.

We didn't stay but we went there for lunch with our children. The play centre was good for our kids and the position of our table meant that we didn't need to be up there to monitor them. Our food took some time to come out and managing the children during that time was hard and I am not sure if it was worth the trouble.

Went to the bar/bistro on a Saturday night and the vibes were great! Went for dinner and to watch the footy, and thoroughly enjoyed the crowd and live music. Food was very nice, and good range of drinks. Very popular place, there was even a line to get in! Very fun local place to go to

The bistro and bar is a goldmine! Massive space with a view of the water. Huge play area for kids with bouncy castles and a mini theatre. Kids can be entertained for hours. Really good food to top it all. Highly recommended!

When we first arrived, we were immediately greeted and directed by a helpful staff member, making our first time experience very smooth.
We were advised to order food quickly because it was busy and their system had caused some delay. With saying this, our food came out 20 minutes after ordering and the sizes were greater than ever, couldn't even finish the meals.
Highly recommend!

Richard who works in the bar is the most delightful human! We had such lovely chats with him over the weekend, funny guy. And the hardest worker I've seen in a long time... he was buzzing around the place wiping tables, collecting empty cups, serving customers - did not stop! What a great role model for the younger staff, showing them how it should be done! Employee's like that make such a difference to a patrons visit to the venue. If you had an 'employee of the month' award, Richard is easily my vote!

Headed down yesterday for a three night getaway and thanks to lockdown, begrudgingly had to leave today. The service was amazing from arrival, the room was beautiful and the view from the balcony was amazing. If I could afford to stay the week, I would of without a doubt. Thank you for an amazing stay, next time I hope it will be longer.

Hotel manager was awesome! Originally booked for 2 (for 1 night) we upgraded online (for a little extra) then needed 3 beds. Rang & got the manager who sorted us out AND upgraded us to a bay view room. It was renovated a couple of years ago & is clean, tidy & adequate (esp for the price!) Would definitely recommend!

We visited the North Pier Hotel and Bistro last weekend on our trip to Phillip Island. We came here for lunch and ordered the fish and chips and they were by far the best we have had. The flakes were crispy and cooked to perfection. We also came here later in the day and enjoyed there locally brewed beer which was really nice. The bar is very large also and the ambience is really good. The views are also amazing. I highly recommend visiting this hotel on your stay in Phillip Island.
