“GORGEOUS APARTMENTS IN A PICTURESQUE TOWN!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

We stayed in the Victoria Apartments this week on a driving holiday from Sydney to Melbourne over to Adelaide, via Great Ocean Rd.

We chose to stay in the picturesque town of Port Fairy as one of our overnight stays on our way to Glenelg, Adelaide.

We are so glad we did choose THE VICTORIA APARTMENTS, as they were absolutely luxurious, gorgeous, clean & spacious!!

From the moment we were greeted at reception, we knew we chose well!! The man at reception was very very friendly & quite welcoming!

We stayed in a 2bedroom apartment, quite spacious for a family of 4, we are 2 adults & 2 children 7 & 3yrs.

The Apartment came with a lock up garage, shared with another unit as well.

We were on the second floor, so we did need to carry our luggage up, but its all easily accessible from the garage internally, so this was great for us as we arrived on a very rainy day!!

The apartment was absolutely spotless, very clean & all linen fabulous as well.

The two bedrooms - 1 x queen & 1 x 2 singles. Loads of cupboard space, if you intend to stay more than one night.

The bathroom was a decent size, not too small & not really large either. Only a shower, no bath.

The kitchen was fabulous. We cooked up a storm, and it was a very user friendly kitchen, stocked well with all the utensils you will need. Dishwasher was easy to use.

Fridge comes with water ($3 per bottle) if you need it. There was complimentary tea/coffee/sugar.

The leather couches were so comfortable, I dozed off on them!! Great size tv for the apartment.

Dining table was a great size for us all, and loads of room for food!!

All in all the Apartment was fantastic, we really loved our stay 10/10!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a road trip along the Great Ocean Road and the Barossa. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which, although small, was well kitted out and very comfortable. We may have been lucky in that the apartment above us was vacant for one night and we had none of the noise problems others have mentioned. It also meant we had exclusve use of the double garage.

We were also situated at the back of the complex, off the main road, so didn't get any road noise.

Reception staff were very helpful and efficient. Recommended a nice Thai restaurant across the road.

Location was great and only a very short walk to the centre of Port Fairy. Recommend the Art Gallery for a pleasant coffee stop.

Would definitively stay again

Booked online thru tripadvisor for 1 night, as we were traveling along the great ocean road. But after arriving decided to stay for 2 nights as the apartment & location could not be better. Very friendly hosts who assisted us in settling in. Highly recommend this hotel to those traveling by themselves as well as in groups as they have single bedroom and two bedroom apartments.

We stayed at The Victoria Apartments for one evening during our drive along the Great Ocean Road. What a fabulous place! Two-bedroom apartment was ample in size for our family of 4 - there is a large TV, spacious kitchen and dining area. The rooms were very clean! And the Staff was very helpful. Port Fairy is a really nice town and conveniently located. We had a great dinner at The Victoria (which is right next door) and a breakfast at The Hubb (across the street). It is also a really good value for the money! Our only regret is that we did not stay longer!

In fact, not only was this the best hotel in town, it was one of the best I've ever stayed at.
Upon a warm welcome from transferring hotels based upon the horrible treatment we received from the hotel across the road, we were invited to inspect a room, and the decor was absolutely stunning. It looked more like a high end apartment than a mere hotel room, to be honest.

The man at reception was extremely helpful and we received lovely service with a smile through out our stay. We were actually reluctant to leave!
On top of this, it was extremely clean. Not a thing out of place - I mean, even the detergents were lined up neatly in the cupboard.

The next time we're in Port Fairy, this is definitely where we will be staying.

We unfortunately had only time for one night in Port Fairy on our trip along the Great Ocean Road and stayed at Victoria Apartments. I would happily have stayed a couple more. The apartments are 4 years old but look as if they might only have opened up this summer, they are so bright and spotless. With beautiful modern decor, I even took a few interior shots just to remind myself when I am redecorating at home the next time!

Having stayed in many apartments throughout our three weeks in Austarlia, we really appreciated the added touches here such as minibar-style drinks and snacks being available as well as basics such as salt and pepper! It really drives me crazy having to buy these wherever you go when it only costs apartment owners a few cents to provide them as part of a basic kit-out for their guests.

The apartments are a little walk away from the main cross roads of Port Fairy but I wouldn't see this as a negative. We would certainly stay here again.
