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!

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

Very clean and the surrounding lawn and gardens were well kept. We would stay at this motel again as it's location for walking or just seeing most... More

I found that the accommodation was very clean and tidy. The service was very good ,close and handy to shops and attractions.A short walk to most pubs or restaurants.it was also a short walk to the Port area and to the Port Fairy lighthouse.I would stay at this motel again if I were down in Port Fairy.

There's nothing seriously wrong with this motel, but there's nothing seriously right either. It is entirely middle of the road, rather lacklustre. Given the fairly hefty price per night accommodation tariff, it is not good value for money. One member of reception staff was effusive with greetings and advice. Other member of reception staff was laconic and lacklustre. The room... More

Located on one of the two main streets for shopping and dining it lives up to its name. There is a wide choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants within a few hundred yards and there are pleasant walks along the jetty and over to Griffith Island. A good starting point for a drive along the Great Ocean Road, which starts... More
