Holmwood Guesthouse was totally refurbished by new owners in late 2012, keeping the best of its original 1930's design while transforming the interior into a comfortable, stylish destination unlike any other on Phillip Island.

Their three elegantly appointed Guesthouse rooms are now more spacious and luxurious featuring brand new ensuite bathrooms, free wireless internet, heating and cooling and coffee and tea facilities.

Holmwood Guesthouse offers boutique style bed and breakfast accommodation, suitable for a romantic getaway or a small group get together. Surrounded by majestic gum trees, it is ideally situated close to the main town centre and only 200 metres to the beach.

In winter, snuggle up in front of a cosy open fire in the guest lounge with daily papers, lifestyle magazines and streaming music of your choice, while in summer, soak up the sun on the front porch overlooking the cottage garden, or on the deck adjoining the bar and dining room.

Full cooked breakfasts are included in in-house rates and are served in the dining room or out on the deck, weather permitting. Optional private dinners are available by prior arrangement for a minimum of six people.

Two separate luxurious spa cottages offer comfort and total privacy. The cottages are fully self-contained with a private courtyard garden, balcony, barbecue, ensuite, double spa bath, cooling and heating, lounge, dining and kitchenette. A wood fire is available in winter only. All linen and towels are included.

For those on a budget, a self contained budget studio apartment on the same property and great location at an affordable price. But if you are looking for luxury, book the guesthouse. If you want space and privacy, they suggest you book the Luxury Cottages with verandas and private gardens.

All guests can enjoy free wireless internet. A fair use policy applies.
