No frills affordable accommodation. Clean room and a good shower in a good location close to the town centre. But you do get what you pay for - no free wi fi and soap dispenser toiletries. This is the go for budget accommodation these days but you should supply a face washer when using dispensers also no hair dryer supplied the remote for the tv was missing. Having said that I would stay here again but only for an over nighter and just bring my own stuff. Friendly staff but the court yard of the motel could use a clean up. We stayed on a Thursday night so it was quiet but I think would be different on the weekend.

We should have realised when the Inn was totally empty in this busy little seaside village. There were two people outside having a drink but that was all. It's the oldest licenced Inn in Victoria we thought we'd give it a go. Lovely woman took our order and made drinks for us. But then ..Oh dear .. lamb shank for me and roast beef for my husband. My lamb shank was reheated and whilst it was well cooked it was swamped in some kind of packet gravy with half cooked pumpkin and potato pieces under it. The mashed potato under all of that was pretty good. The roast beef was also swamped in the same gravy as my lamb and the pumkin on my husband's plate wad so raw he could not cut it. It went downhill from there. The beef was chewy and full of gristle .. half the meat was inedible. We sat at an outside table so we had our dogs there with us. They were grateful for the poor food we were given but neither dog would touch the raw pumpkin. Won't be coming back.

Basic budget accommodation very close to centre of town . Ideal base to walk the town and even over to Griffith Island. Clean and compact. Two night stay . First night was very noisy as it was a Saturday with a function on at the Pub. Rooms not serviced daily. Need to empty your own bin and chase up anything you may need, eg teabags,milk etc for the second night. Don't expect extras as tissues, hair dryer as they are not supplied. Meal at Pub standard pub fare, nothing extraordinary.

Room tip: Don't stay on a weekend or ask if there is a function in the back area of the pub.

Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Bed was great. Small room but we only stayed one night so it was fine. Situated right behind the pub so was very convenient for meals. Rate was very reasonable and I would recommend it to,others.

Just had a meal from the Caledonian Hotel in Poet Fairy. Was reading others and decided to have a punt. Decided to go for the specials menu and OMG, the beef was amazing, really well cooked to order and veggies/sauce accompanied really well. Would very much recommend it for food and not knowing the main menu would suggest to think hard about the specials. My friend really enjoyed his very much too as well. They had a separate veggie hot plate to help your self that was good and really as well!! A couple of happy Scots!!
