    Good size room to share for 3 persons. Very effective heating with the cold weather. The owners were extremely helpful in organising a shower chair for our friend in a wheelchair. Quiet location for a relaxing holiday.

    We stayed here for one night as part of our road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. It is indeed in a very central location up a driveway surrounded by beautiful gardens. Jo at reception was very helpful and gave us a street map and marked out places to see and eat. We scored Room 2 on the ground floor at... More

    This is by far the most expensive Golden Chain Motel we have ever stayed in and the smallest room we have ever stayed in. The room had no view and its only window looked directly into a boundary fence. Would not stay in this motel again.

    Excellent service from Kristy when we booked in, and some great local advice for dinner, breakfast. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable, and we slept like logs. The gardens at this hotel are gorgeous, and the location is really convenient. We recommend it!

    The place is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The outside area's are well maintained. No grumbles at all. Gentleman on reception was friendly and helpful. Only reservation would be the price, based on other motels I have stayed in it could be considered a little bit on the high side. However I did enjoy my stay.

    Thank you for your review. You mentioned that you thought our price was a bit high. Port Fairy is a very sought after and popular coastal town and because of this it does attract higher nightly tariffs.
