“Happy Campers”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

The Port Fairy Motor Inn was just one of six places we stayed in January whilst travelling to Melbourne. The Manager/Owner was very helpful, the rooms were simple but clean, the bed comfortable. It is situated a few minutes from the town centre.
It is best described as a 'no frills' style of place and ideal for a one night stop over.

We were in room 2. Faces the highway. Advertised as their deluxe room. Had a nice front patio area. Very small motel. Room was neat and tidy and in comparison to every other port fairy motel offered reasonable value @$109 for the night off wotif. Road noise is an issue however didn't appear to bother my wife and I wear ear ugs anyway. You can feel relaxed booking into this motel as it is safe clean and friendly.

During our tour of Australia and NZ we stayed at 20 different motels and hotels. This was by far the worst.

We stayed with our family in a so called cabin, which was more like a caravan without wheels. We paid about 160 AUD which was definately not value for money. It was very poor standard and as far from cosy as you can get. Also, it is situated far from the town centre and the sea

Could do with a bit of a bit of money spent to brighten it up, also a bit far from the town centre. Bed was quite comfortable but otherwise probably would stay elsewhere next time.

Reviewed 16 May 2011

We stayed one night in a 2 bedroom apartment. It is a good size, but you have to walk through one bedroom to get to the bathroom. The beds were a bit too firm but although on the highway it was very quiet. There is a small kitchen area with the only sink in the bathroom. The location is a bit too far out of Port Fairy for a comfortable walk and there is no food service. I would recommend for a 1 or 2 night stay but not for an extended stay.

This motel is on the main highway, but set back so it is quiet at night. my room was quite large, with a kitchen area and good sized bathroom. It was very smart and well decorated and very reasonable price. The owner, Thomas, is very pleasant and helpful. The only snag is that there is no food service at the motel. There is a garage a short drive down the highway which sells snacks, but a 10 min drive downtown which has plenty of restaurants, or drive further to the marina with a recommended seafood restaurant.

  • Liked — quiet and comfortable
  • Disliked — no eating place locally
