This motor inn is in sadly need of a huge reno! Our room was tired and had a musty smell, was dreadful! Manager was lovely and helpful but sadly that is the only nice thing I can say. Certainly not worth $125 should only be $80 a night. Wish I had read TripAdvisor before I booked!!

Loved that it was out and away from the Main Street. But could imagine that the road going past would be noisy in the busy season being the road into town. The room layout was interesting to say the least. Such as the gorgeous spa in the main room with no privacy and the lack of space around the bed... More

From the road the new units looked inviting. I think we got the worse room there. The owner was away and a woman down the road was in charge!! It smelt of stale sick, the décor and furnishings all need updating urgently. The worse motel of our trip from Melbourne to Adelaide and over priced too.

This was the worst place we stayed in 7 weeks of travelling. We arrived at 8pm and the sign on the reception door said open until 8:30, but there was no-one there, locked and in darkness. The sign suggested ringing a certain number, but we don't have mobiles. We waited until 8:45 and went walking along the dark road to... More

Spent just one night here during our trip on the Great Ocean Road. We were cautioned by the very nice check-in woman that our room was small, but thought it was actually quite spacious and seemed very new and well maintained. It is a few minutes (driving) from the town, but if you have a car it is no problem... More

Clean and comfortable, and is a good budget option. Was a good option for the port fairy folk festival as it was away from the noise when you wished to get some sleep. It is about a ten minute walk from the centre of town, so not to far a daily commute. Owner is friendly and helpful.

Nervous upon arrival, but was made to feel very welcome. The owner couldn't do enough to make me feel at home, nothing was too much trouble, more milk, extra towels, nothing was a bother. safe parking for my car behind the main front entrance. A very large lawn expanse for just lazing around and a communal BBQ used by some... More

The Port Fairy Motor Inn was just one of six places we stayed in January whilst travelling to Melbourne. The Manager/Owner was very helpful, the rooms were simple but clean, the bed comfortable. It is situated a few minutes from the town centre. It is best described as a 'no frills' style of place and ideal for a one night... More

We were in room 2. Faces the highway. Advertised as their deluxe room. Had a nice front patio area. Very small motel. Room was neat and tidy and in comparison to every other port fairy motel offered reasonable value @$109 for the night off wotif. Road noise is an issue however didn't appear to bother my wife and I wear... More
