Small motel right in the centre of Port Fairy. Very quiet, the rooms are very clean, no air conditioner though which makes the room very warm & stuffy. A pedestal fan is supplied. Tea & coffee making facilities with mugs which makes a nice surprise instead of a small cup &

Thank you for your very positive review. Being a coastal town we find the need for air con very rare- eg last week when it was 44 degrees just 2 hours north of us we enjoyed a very pleasant 26 degrees- but no doubt a few times a year it is required. We must point out that our tariff as opposed to our competitors with air con reflect that difference. On the positive side, the property is very well insulated which keeps the rooms cool in summer and warm in winter and if the windows are left down from the top after the sea breeze arrives, the sea breeze usually freshens the room quickly. We find only those guests that do not drop the windows after the outside air cools find their rooms "stuffy" As always, we endeavour to give our guests the best experience possible whilst staying with us and we continue to do this by supplying good clean rooms, great location and friendly service at a competitive rate. Kind Regards Peter

This room was very basic. We were very surprised to find no air conditioner in the room on a hot day. No microwave either was a nuisance. I am a frequent traveller and this is is a $150 per night room max.
