We came here (2 families with lots of kids) The food selection was great and I wasn't sure what to expect. The man who took my order was very accomodating and even made a special dish for my son. What a champ! The prices were extremely reasonable and the food portions were generous. We had in our group; garlic prawns,...

The history of this place is everywhere but we won't rush back. The food was ok I guess although the steak which we ordered medium was rare. I am sure there are nicer places to eat, but the service was fast so with three young children that was a definite bonus.

Popped in for a beer and to check out the history of this pub - the oldest in Australia. The owners were most obliging and very helpful. Apparently people come in all the time seeking historical information. There's a great collection of memorabilia on the walls. Worth a visit. Thanks for your help.

My wife had a wonderful piece of salmon that came with everything. What a great venue in a small town. The rest of the menu l;look very...

This is a quaint place in Port Fairy. The rooms which are at the back of the hotel look old, but it is apparent hey have recently been fixed, albeit room 14 had been in any event. Great strong shower which I like. You check in at the bar at the hotel, and the guy who checked me in looked...

I stayed there overnight on business. It was just perfect. The room I had was in the main building with en-suite. Bed comfortable, good quality bedding towels and bathroom accessories. Hosts very friendly with good recommendation on where to eat. I will definitely stay there again.

The motel rooms are older and can have issues (the window will not close in the bathroom), but for the price it is comfortable. We stayed here before and we returned. The Pub has decent food and we have eaten there several times. So I reckon I would recommend it.

After reviewing Trip Advisor comments on eateries in Port Fairy we decided to dine at the Caledonian, also known as "The Stump". We found food to be excellent. There was a buffet of salads and hot vegetables to add to your meal. The atmosphere was pleasant and all guests seemed to enjoy their meals. The price was reasonable, so we...
