Had a great stay in this B and B which doubles as a restaurant in the evenings . Why beds in sheds ? Well our room whilst part of the main building looked like our shed at home with all its timber cladding , separate front door and low pitched roof ! The hosts were very friendly and whilst we...

A spontaneous weekend away in Port Fairy. Winter has started, windy, wet and wild. Random booking at the Merrijig Inn because they offered cosy accommodation, waterside locale and breakfast was included. Room upgrade first off, to a queen with ensuite and private sitting room. Booked the last table for an amazing dinner. Fresh local ingredients made every dish sing. A... More

My hubby and I stayed here for 1 night in the attic bedroom. We loved the cozy ambience of the Inn, especially the living room area with a fireplace! Our bedroom was quite small but comfy and there was a hot water bottle provided. Breakfast was provided and it was a pretty yummy spread! Friendly staff and we loved the... More

Good location near main part of Port Fairy and the river. Breakfast is brilliant, rooms are nice (we stayed in the King Suite). Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere, a very good example of a B&B. Overall, would definitely come back and happy to recommend.

Very much a value for money location. We loved our room and the common area with the fire place just outside our door, great to sit and have a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers all from the local area. Having a restaurant attached made our choice for dinner very easy, I would highly recommend having dinner then... More

We stayed here one night, after deciding to extend our stay in Port Fairy. Our ground floor room led directly onto the lovey garden and allowed us to take advantage of some lovely weather to relax after a day's walking and exploring. We were able to make our own hot or cold drinks and enjoy the home made cookies. There... More

Just got back from an overnight stay and had a great time. We arrived at about 7.00 pm and presented our gift voucher, we booked a Queen room and were going to pay the extra but the lovely lady (one of the owners - Liz I think) said no problems it's Friday night so you can have it at the... More

After a hectic day on the Great Ocean Road, there is no better respite than a stay at the Merrijig Inn. The hotel is charming beyond belief, while at the same time, provides every modern convenience, including free wifi in the common areas. We arrived late in the evening, having missed any dinner options in the area, thus relying on... More

My daughter and I shared the quirky upstairs attic which just fit two single iron beds, and a bathroom which required a bit of head ducking under the pitched roof! We had the run of the place after dinner, and made cups of tea, read books and watched tv before a good night's sleep with a dormer window open to... More
