This motel is in a great location in the centre of town. The rooms are adequate although I found the bathroom quite small but manageable. The room was clean and well aired and there was enough car parking. Our host was lovely and gave us a few places to eat after we asked. Any recommendation is always welcomed when you...

We stayed over the festival weekend at the motel. The motel is in the centre of Port Fairy but set back from the street so noise is minimal. The rooms were comfortable, the staff helpful. A good place to stay.

Very central but back from the road so there is no traffic noise. Our room was clean, sunny and comfortable. From the cleaners to the reception and manager, all were extremely friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to walk to all the good restaurants, shops and scenic places. Certainly would recommend this motel.
