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. Here at the Central Motel we have actually maintained our rack rate for the last three years and you will find us to... More

The manager/owner was friendly and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed with everything you need. The motel is ideally located in the Main Street with restaurants and shops close by. Thanks Peter for a very pleasant stay.

Yes thanks for the discount Peter! Room very comfortable and clean. Free wifi a bonus and it worked without any difficulty connecting etc. Bed was the best... Most comfortable travelling from one side of Australia to the other and back on a really short timeframe that we've had so far. Certainly stay here again and appreciate the late booking hospitality!... More

We phoned at 6pm for a last minute booking after reviewing accommodation options in Port Fairy on Wotif.com and Lastminute.com and still had an hour to drive. Peter was awesome. Peter was extremely friendly and nothing was a problem. Check-in only took a minute, with an option of an up or downstairs room and we were in. The room was... More

Our room was cosy and warm and beds very comfortable, we slept very well. Having free wifi was a real bonus. Situated in a fantastic location, we had a good choice of eating places close by. Spotlessly clean and quiet. Thanks Jo for your hospitality.

So warm, friendly and welcoming...nothing was too much trouble. Great motel stay; clean, quiet room, and a short stroll to restaurants, cafes and pub. Would recommend if you're looking for a great value and comfortable room.
