It's a great location and well priced for the area. The lady at the desk was very friendly and I got a free drink when I bought a meal at the pub around the corner. It's in the middle of a quiet town, the room was very clean and comfortable.

The Central Motel is located in the "heart" of Port Fairy, within walking distance to many attractions and eateries - making it convenient for those taking a break from driving! Despite the central location, it was very quiet and has a delightful outdoor area. Our room was quite spacious and we'll set out, although a sink on the roomy bench... More

Central location, friendly staff, comfortable, well lit room, excellent heater, comfortable bed. I booked by phone and I was able to arrange a round of golf included in the price. Show your room key and get a free drink at the Star of the West hotel with excellent meal.

Its location right in the centre of town is superb and quite unique. Really convenient for all local shops, cafes and restaurants. Very spacious, clean and comfortable rooms with a great welcome. The manager organised golf for us the next day at the wonderful Port fairy golf club.

The staff are friendly, the location is perfectly central, the rooms are comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean and there are eateries in both directions when you walk out onto the street. The owners have had this motel for a long time now and it shows in the attention to detail in the rooms. The Wifi for example is the best... More

We found this motel ideal for our needs - our ground-floor room quiet, well lit, & with comfortable bed. It is very conveniently located and has car access from front & back. Owner very friendly & helpful. Heater in room, but no A/C - probably not essential in this seaside town. Some car-parking slots are very narrow, a potential inconvenience... More

Room was clean, well equipped and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Friendly staff who knew the area well. Perfect location for a few BYO restaurants (strongly recommend Lemongrass Thai Restaurant!).
