We stayed at this hotel for only one night and booked it last minute. Reception is very friendly and room is very clean. The bed is comfortable, we slept too well we were only few minutes before last minutes of checking out :). Also great if you bring your car as we got a parking space right down our room's window. An added value is that the wifi is free and connection is fast.

Room Tip: Prefer the rooms upstairs as it's not directly exposed to people walking in the yard and parking space.

Thank you Victoria for your review. Our Wi Fi is complimentary and importantly unlimited and quick. We have stayed at many properties ourselves where you pay a high price for Wi Fi or complimentary only to to find the data allocation is limited and needs more payment or is clunky and slow which is annoying.
So we are pleased to offer our guests unlimited, quick and free service.
We are also in the process of installing charging units for the Tesla electric vehicles and will be the only provider in Port Fairy at this time.
Again thank you for your kind remarks

Excellent, friendly service; Comfy bed. Breakfast package very good. Right in the centre of town -walking distance to good eateries.
Fortunately the weather was not too hot, as there is no air conditioning, only a fan. But overall good. Off street parking.

Room Tip: Very quiet. Large outdoor seating area.

Thank you Jenn-glad you enjoyed your 3 day stay. We have found extremely limited need for air conditioning as our area in the south west enjoys a very cool temperate climate with a pleasant sea breeze presenting in the mid afternoon of those warmer days. Our building is also extremely well insulated so stays warm in winter and nice and cool on warmer days.
Regards
Peter

Thank you for your review-it is pleasing to receive comment that reflects the effort put in by our team. We are proud of our cleaning staff who do an excellent job. We subscribe to the notion that the 3 things travellers need are cleanliness, a great bed and quiet room to support a good sleep and of course friendliness at reception on arrival and throughout the stay. As for value always book with your motel direct to get the best price by phoning or booking on their web site.
Again Thank you-I shall forward your comments to our staff
Regards Peter

One of our group left a notebook behind without realising it. We were called promptly. The item was sent by overnight post to our Melbourne address. We found the staff very helpful generally and the motel is in a very convenient location.

My mom and I were traveling along the Great Ocean Road, this was our stop the second night. The communication was great and they waited for us to check in since we arrived late at night! The room was comfortable, beds clean! Bathroom was well kept and space!

Thanks Becky-we promote the fact that if guests are arriving after reception hours we are happy to make alternative arrangements to ensure a smooth check in.
A phone contact is simple for those guests arriving after 6.00pm to assure us you are still coming and make arrangements should that arrival be after reception closure.
Again, thank you for your kind words, we continue to strive to provide good clean rooms and friendly service at reasonable cost.
