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.

Stayed here for two nights while visiting friends in Melbourne. This motel is just as it says, central. It is very convenient for restaurants and shops. The room we had was spotlessly clean and very quiet. It was also handily placed for the gardens which had seats and tables for those who wanted somewhere nice to sit after a day... More

Hi Sue, Thank you for your glowing review. We take a lot of pride in our motel and all these positive reviews are testimony to this. We agree about our garden - a lovely tranquil place to sit with a book or a glass of wine at the end of the day. We're very happy for our guests to use... More

After an exhilarating drive from Melbourne down the Great Ocean Road we were welcomed by Jo & shown all the points on interest around Port Fairy on a map. We check-in and settled into our room which was great value for the tariff and one night stay. We then headed out in search of dinner and beer. We found this... More

Thank you Patrick for your kind review and it was a pleasure having you stay. You will be pleased to know that the door has now been sealed and we have checked to see if others had the same problem and fixed where necessary. We agree with you about Coffin Sally - delicious pizzas, great atmosphere and good service. Port... More

We arrived with suitcases by bus in Port Fairy & the Central Motel is only one block from the bus stop. As the name suggests it's right in the heart of the town but in a very quiet location. The room was comfortable - bed good, table with chairs, a two-seater lounge. The staff were very friendly & helpful. they... More

Really lovely stay in Port Fairy. Great location, right in the main street. The motel has spotlessly clean room. Relaxed and friendly welcome. Very pleasant small garden area with tables and chairs. Thanks for a very pleasant stay

Thank you Liesl for your review. We get so many positive comments about the cleanliness of our rooms. We are lucky to have the best team of house keepers ever. They take so much pride in the motel and probably keep it cleaner than their own homes! So a big thank you to them. Cleanliness plays such a major role... More

Nothing especially comment worthy. Staff friendly at check-in. Room clean and reasonably spacious. One thing which would have improved the experience for me would be the addition of air conditioning. Overall, reasonably priced and a pleasant garden.

Stayed here in Feb 2015. Staff very pleasant and the rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipt. Very central for the town's amenities and it has a small garden area with tables and chairs where you can sit and have a glass of wine on an evening. Good value motel
