Great lace to stay with a small dog

Review of Central Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Sept 2019via mobile
We had a nice weekend here with our small dog (it’s hard to find a place with a dog) very comfortable, absolutely central and quiet. Cafes right outside the door. Small grassed area with seats is very useful when letting the dog have some down time.
Date of stay: October 2019

Everything we needed for an overnight stay. Comfortable bed. Well equipped. Nice friendly owner.
Central Unfortunately we arrived the last day of the folk festival and this meant it was hard to find somewhere to eat. but other than that it was great.

We enjoyed our short stay at this motel and would choose it again. It is centrally located right in the middle of town, which is what we needed this time, but nice and quiet. I like the simple colour tones used in the decor of the rooms and it is very clean. The bed itself was incredibly comfortable and we slept very well. We didn't really need much for our stay so don't know what other facilities there are. The garden setting is very attractive.

Room tip: I enjoyed being upstairs down the back but the whole motel is set back from the main street so it seems quiet anyway.

Thank you for your complimentary review. Our beds are a good quality Sealy bed, and that is a common comment so thank you again.
Our Motel is right in the middle of the main street of Port Fairy but set back off the roadway so our guests have the convenience of being close to all other amenities but incredibly quiet as well.
We encourage all guests to book directly with us 03 55681800 to get the best possible rate.
Kind regards-Peter

Check in easy and room clean. Bed was comfortable. Right in Main Street so it was walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Free parking and easy to drive to local attractions. Recommend this motel.

Booked this place last minute whilst winding our way down the Great Ocean Road, didn't arrive until quite late, but Peter was there to offer advise on where to eat, what to do...the usual. Perfectly placed in the centre of town, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Along with his wife Linda, they were very helpful in advising on where best to stay on the next leg of the journey....our only regret...not having the time to stay at least one more night! Next time we will.

Right in the middle of town, which is a huge bonus. Unfortunately a bit of a hike to the beach though. Rooms quite comfortable, and even has a mini bar. The staff and also quite helpful and friendly. Nice place to stay.

Thank you for your complimentary review. The beach is a 5 minute walk or 1 minute car drive to our patrolled beach and surf club but we can boast very ready access to all cafes and eateries and the river front. All much appreciated by guests who wish to dine out and have a drink without the worry of driving home.
