“Perfect”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I can't believe what a wonderful find this little block of apartments is - spotlessly clean, modern, comfortable, set in a quaint hidden little alleyway that you might miss if you don't know it's there. Conveniently located right in the middle of the main shopping and eating area of Port fairy but quiet and peaceful. What's more, it's much more affordable than many of its competition in town.

A wonderful room in a discreet location with direct access to a lovely garden courtyard. Extremely well presented with high quality finish. Well located to a great choice of restaurants, and walking distance to all attractions. Park the car, and wander the streets to enjoy the architecture and general atmosphere of the town.
Host is very helpful - highly recommended

Spotlessly clean & very comfortable. We felt as though we were the first guests to stay in the room as it appeared freshly decorated & newly carpeted. Nice & warm on a dark, wet night, it served our purpose well after a long driving day on The Great Ocean Road. A fair amount of 'clumping about' from above & it is an anonymous sort of place - Tony gives you directions & leaves room open & you just shut the door behind you on leaving. That is no great problem if you are not expecting a fanfare arrival! Recommended.

We have just gotten home from a fantastic four night stay at this wonderfully self contained 'boutique' styled accommodation. Can I just say 'we absolutely loved it!'. If you're looking for 'The Ritz marbled foyered reception area with bell hop' on some resort then maybe this accommodation and indeed this whole town isn't for you. But this is the gorgeous Port Fairy!!! With its quaint tiny cottages, beautiful English gardens and amazing maritime history. Imagine then driving down a back lane way to find a parking spot just as your welcome text had described, to then walk into a cute little courtyard where you find your room spotlessly clean all ready and waiting for you. The room itself is beautifully decorated, very comfortable bed and the bathroom is perfect with quality linen. This was exactly our experience and  my wife, son and I absolutely loved it. 
The courtyard is quite narrow and yes it is at the back of a cafe, but we were in the room closest to this and had no problems what so ever. We barely saw any cafe staff and when we did they were very polite and friendly. As for the actual cafe patrons they're nowhere near you so no problems there. Being so close to a cafe isn't a problem, on the contrary, its so so handy to grab delicious Mahalia Coffee and bring it back to your room. The point is, you are so close to the main street but the private little alley ways to get into the accommodation ensures that when your back in your accommodation you feel like the rest of the world is miles away. Isn't that then like the best kind of accommodation?!!  Clean, quaint and private and yet a literal stones throw to everything! This accommodation is SO boutiquely Port Fairy!!  Thank you Tony, we will be back!

Arrived late 29th AUG evening after shower. Not quite easy to find the drive way at night and the road was wet. Tony was to Melbourne and left the keys. The small town did not look busy - had an expensive but very bad Chinese dinner. Shops closed quite early.
I stayed in #4. Facility was nicely presented and set up. Unfortunately couldn't turn on the stove for breakfast next morning. Not very good mood for further explore in the town and then rushed to Robe.

Room Tip: Better arrival earlier

We spent two nights at Port Fairy and had the pleasure of staying in this lovely accommodation. The room was not massive but had all the items you needed for a very comfortable stay.

During our stay a very heavy cold front was moving through (think horizontal rain and sea gulls going backwards) the room was wonderfully warm to return to after wandering the local streets and surrounding areas.

The accommodation is little hard to find as it is accessible from the main street only by a very small walkway and from the back only by driving down a small laneway. Better signage at and in the entrance laneway and rear of the building would greatly improve this especially for guests arriving in the dark (which would be common in winter). I guess an emailed map might also improve the search.

This aside, I would be hard pushed to offer any improvements. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the location was very central and best of all the price was very good.

Happy to recommend this one to any travelling to Port Fairy and would happily stay there again.
