We stayed in overland 2 and it was absolutely adorable. There were 3 of us and it was just enough space. The place was very clean and had everything we needed, there were a few spiders but they kept to themselves. Geoff and his wife...More

Why stay in just another Hotel or Motel in just another Town or City?When you can do something completely different this holiday. Come over to Codrington & join us on our wonderful rural property More on the un-spoilt South West Coast of Victoria, the region famously known as "The Shipwreck Coast”.All our units are set within 6 acres of private & secluded gardens.You can stay in a Period Train Carriage for a truly unique experience, the "Port Fairy Flyer" is a 1894 carriage now a sumptuous room for 2, "Overland" is a 1907 carriage with a First Class feel, Bondi Express is a one of a kind double decker carriage offering a wonderful & memorable experience.Or choose one of our traditional Country Cottages & enjoy a sense of Rural Splendour of a bygone era. Olive Tree Cottage is a 2 bedroom very spacious cottage with bright sunny aspect, Gooseberry Cottage is a smaller 2 bedroom cottage with a marvellous deck overlooking quite gardens, Settler Cottage is the original "settlers" cottage mid 1800's now renovated to a wonderful modern unit with 1 bedroom and big living area & Station Master Lodge is a single bedroom with a great sunroom overlooking the court yard gardens.AWARDS: Voted in Top Ten "Best Place to Stay" in Victoria in 2007, 2008, & 2009. Voted finalist "Most Unique Place to Stay" 2009 & 10. Our units are AAA & RACV rated as 4 Star and 3.5 Star.Codrington Gardens is a feature of the area, something far more interesting & relaxing than a stay at just another motel or hotel in just another Town or City. The short drive out of Port Fairy rewards you with peace and quite of a rural property with massive private gardens, yet central to all the local attractions you will want to see.Enjoy our secure & private 6.5 acre property, with room to roam, space to relax, somewhere for the kids to run & play safely, a place where the whole family can spend quality time together & breath the clean fresh country air amid a true rural atmosphere. It will recharge your very soul. Less
