Room was clean, well equipped and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Friendly staff who knew the area well. Perfect location for a few BYO restaurants (strongly recommend Lemongrass Thai Restaurant!). We took a stroll down the beach after we ate and managed to catch an amazing sunset as well as bumping into a very lovely local woman who walked us back to Central Motel with added tour guide on all the local stories and advice on best places to eat/drink. Could not have asked for a better stop off on our travels and would go back in a heartbeat!

Thank you for your favorable review.

Here at The Central Motel we strive hard to ensure our guests have a wonderful stay. We love our beautiful town so want to make sure you get to experience as much of it as you can fit in.
You will find though that one night just isn't enough. There is so much to see and do here, so many great restaurants and cafes to sample, as well as strolls along the beach, river or around the island, shopping at the markets, the fantastic shops and galleries to wander through and so much more.
Ask our friendly staff when you ring about a two or more night stay discount. We will give much better rates than all the online prices.

Lovely comfortable bed and very central to everything that Port Fairy has to offer. Lots of lovely cafes restaurants and hotels close by. No air conditioning in our room just a plug in fan which was a bit disappointing ..

Dab smack in the middle of wonderful Port Fairy this is a very run of the mill motel. The rooms have had work done on them but they still lack charm and the paintwork is a depressing grey. The beds are ok, and the shower is fine. There is a decent Tv and fridge. It was good to find a toaster, plates and bowls as well as cups and glasses but some of these were dirty and unusable. Generally this is an acceptable budget motel but the prices weren't as we paid as much as a lovely apartment in Lorne

Very close to Port Fairy small harbour and to Griffith Island, it's easy to walk down there and quite interesting to see wallabies and birds.
Very close to the restaurants in Port Fairy.
Quiet and comfortable room, nice staff. Kettle, coffee and tea provided for breakfaxt in room.

Nice people work here. The town is nice and has some cool shops. The room is clean and comfortable. It's not luxury but it will certainly work for a night or 2. No AC so if it's hot they have a fan. The wifi is also free and the signal and speed is good.
