Excellent location but one must always remember that accommodation under $200.00 a night is likely to be basic. Nothing wrong as such. Reception was very helpful. Rooms were okay, clean but one would not want to spend too much time in. Pillows not overly comfortable and sheets though clean were very basic with holes and ragged edges. Nice garden area...

Stayed one night during a Great Ocean Road Trip. Room was very clean and comfortable for one night , however seemed overpriced for what the room offered. Very central location in the middle of town but still close for a nice walk along the foreshore and around Griffiths Island. Overall a pleasant stay.

We have stayed here before and had the same rooms. They are lovely. The service is excellent. The Motel is ideally situated and everything is in a comfortable walking distance. It was also a 4 night stay and it was quite every night.

Unfortunately we had planned only one night in Port Fairy as part of our trip along the Great Ocean Road. The Central Motel is ideally located in the centre of the main shopping area and surprisingly there was absolutely no traffic or other noise in such a busy area. The lady at the front desk when we arrived was most...

Visited Port Fairy with my partner over a long weekend and decided upon the Central Motel due to the location. Front desk was very friendly and helpful offering us tips of local restaurants and things to see while we were in town. The room was clean and comfortable although we did not spend much time in it as there was...

Thank you for your review and so pleased you enjoyed the Central Motel and our lovely little town. Those of us who are lucky to live here, know all the best things to see and do and we are only too happy to pass our knowledge on.

This motel has a great central location in downtown Port Fairy; cafes, restaurants, supermarket, banks, all are just a short stroll away. Check-in was fast and friendly. The rooms were comfortable and easily accessible. Good value for money, I would definitely stay there again.

Very well situated in centre of town. Arrived without booking and got last room. Very decent although little dated. Loved the electric blankets! Room clean and comfy. Staff delightful and very helpful. Reasonably priced in what turned out to be an expensive town for accommodation.

This motel is located in the centre of town, with a supermarket about 4 doors away. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The rooms had everything we needed. We travelled with another couple and had downstairs rooms with the rooms linked in a vestibule area - this was a great bonus.

So central and close to everything Port Fairy offers & the room had everything we needed including eating utensils ,glassware and table & chairs. There is also a very pleasant garden area where we were able to sit and read in the sun and fresh air.
