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

My young family made a last minute, midweek, work related trip to Port Fairy. We found this motel due to it's very central location and was pleased with manager Peter's very friendly and helpful manner. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This motel is located within the central shopping area and has a beautiful outdoor area that would have been... More

Visited the Central Motel on a recent golfing trip and had a great time. Obviously very 'Central' which made it easy to get around at night for dinner and to the pubs. Very clean and had a great nights sleep. Cheers to Peter and his family for looking after us.
