My husband and I stayed here recently on our way to the Great Ocean Road. It is in the centre of town which was perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, however are a little out of date, despite a few renovations. I did not find the bed very comfortable, however my husband was okay...

Large comfortable room. Not a super modern motel but clean and right in town. Walk to everything. No meals but very thing is on your doorstep. Found customer service in Port Fairy in general was poor though.

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.

Thanks for your comments Pete-all our guests get a complimentary drink at the local pub when ordering a meal and our Wi Fi is also complimentary with free parking-lots of benefits when staying with us at the Central Motel right in the heart of the main street.

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...

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.

Thank you for your review-we strive to present our rooms to best advantage and take pride in assisting guests wherever possible. Our golf course is consistently rated in the top 50 public courses in Australia and well worth a round or two at the iresistable rate of $40 per round or even better if booked through us at reception.

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...
