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

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

From the moment we walked into the reception we felt welcome. Staff so friendly and helpful and happy to bring a microwave to our room to hear our babies bottles and food 😀 Great price, room was clean and very comfortable. Despite and excellent location right in the middle of town the room was quiet and peaceful. We walked to... More

Thank you for your glowing review. You can have the best of both worlds here at the Central Motel. You can't get any closer to all Port Fairy's wonderful shops, restaurants & cafes than when staying with us. On the other hand though, you will find us tucked away in a lovely garden setting - peaceful & very quiet. Perfect... More

Although dated this was a lovely place to stay for one night in Port Fairy. Very lovely and helpful staff. Great location and comfortable room. All you need really! Decor in the room is dated but this has no effect on my stay. Room was large with a queen bed, couch and a dining table for two! Great little motel!

Smack bang in the middle of town the owner of this establishment was very friendly and welcoming. We had two rooms side by side. Both rooms were extremely spacious and had all facilities one would expect of a motel room (except a microwave - more about this below). A ceiling fan for hot days as we experienced would also add...

great location in the middle of town. Close to everything. Basic motel room was clean and in good condition despite age, with very comfortable beds. Good for a night if travelling the great ocean road and want to go a bit further than the big attractions.

This is an older motel and overpriced compared to other motels we stayed in on our trip in Victoria. The room was clean and the bed comfortable but the room was dated, dark and depressing. We stayed two nights in Port Fairy but I think one night would have been enough!

Sadly we get some negative reviews and unfortunately we can't please everyone all the time. Our motel was built in the 60's so it is an older building. We have given it much TLC (tender loving care) over the years and feel it is now bright and cheery and our guests always comment on the comfortable beds and cleanliness of... More

Only spent the one night here, welcomed at book in by Peter, and he was friendly and helpful. Our room was right up the far end away from the main street and upstairs. Not very roomy and small toilet shower area. No air conditioning or roof fan. We did find a fan in the cupboard. There is no way I... More

We are sorry you found your stay with us unpleasant. We agree that the road works in the main street of Port Fairy have been an inconvenience to many - visitors and locals alike. Port Fairy residents are actually extremely excited about the much needed upgrade to our streetscape. The footpaths have been paved in bluestone from the quarry just... More
