Can't complain, it is budget accommodation. Fair way from town center and on the main road but noise was not a problem in our unit. Could not use wi fi in our room. Not much else to say, adequate but not special.

Where do I begin? Well, for starters, to be checked-in by the owners' young daughter because "dad was on the phone" was a little inappropriate. Heaven forbid credit cards are being dealt with in situations like this. One look at our Standard Studio with Kitchenette on arrival (room 6) sent shivers down my spine. The beautiful photos displayed over the... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Port Fairy at the Port Fairy Motor Inn. The provision of rainwater to drink each day was lovely), the room was cleaned very well each day, and the host was fantastically friendly. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back.

The room we had was adequate but a little bit pricy for what it was. The room was a little dark and slightly tired looking. However the owner was friendly and helpful. They do warn you about how long the shower takes to warm up and the drinking water which was awful. That having been said, there was a very... More

We stayed in Port Fairy at the end of our drive along the Great Ocean Road. The motel is on the main road into town, about a mile or so out from the centre. Our room was a good size, well equipped and comfortable, and had the best wi-fi reception (and free) we had found in Australia to that point.

Great value for money with friendly owner and real country hospitality. Very clean room, not trying to be something that it's not Thrilled with this beautiful little town. I'll certainly come back and stay again

This motor inn is in sadly need of a huge reno! Our room was tired and had a musty smell, was dreadful! Manager was lovely and helpful but sadly that is the only nice thing I can say. Certainly not worth $125 should only be $80 a night. Wish I had read TripAdvisor before I booked!!

Loved that it was out and away from the Main Street. But could imagine that the road going past would be noisy in the busy season being the road into town. The room layout was interesting to say the least. Such as the gorgeous spa in the main room with no privacy and the lack of space around the bed... More

From the road the new units looked inviting. I think we got the worse room there. The owner was away and a woman down the road was in charge!! It smelt of stale sick, the décor and furnishings all need updating urgently. The worse motel of our trip from Melbourne to Adelaide and over priced too.

This was the worst place we stayed in 7 weeks of travelling. We arrived at 8pm and the sign on the reception door said open until 8:30, but there was no-one there, locked and in darkness. The sign suggested ringing a certain number, but we don't have mobiles. We waited until 8:45 and went walking along the dark road to... More

“THE ROOMS ACROSS THE FRONT ARE HIGHER QUALITY. The rooms at the back are a bit older but no less tastefully decorated. For a budget stay,,,the peaceful cabins at the back are amazingly spacious and have a rural outlook.”
