“Overnight stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

Fantastic location. Basic room a little over priced. Packet soap, shampoo and conditioner supplied would be more up market rather than squeeze lotion bottles. Rain water near toilet off putting. Staff were welcoming and gave some directions to eateries.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Being located in the centre of town it was perfect for us to see the sights and dine out. The hosts were very friendly helpful to the max in recommending places to see and where to eat. It was no trouble to extend our stay without a prior booking. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed with all needs catered for. Would recommend to anyone wanting a great place to stay at reasonable rates.

Room Tip: Rooms near the upstairs staircase can be noisy if people are heavy footed.

It is great to get positve feed back about service. I think we are all frustated at the lack of it these days particularly from the big organisations. We will continue to sustain that level of service for all of our guests in the future.

We found the Central Hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Facilities were very good, the bed comfortable and all appliances worked efficiently. The location was excellent, being in walking distance to most places of interest. We would definitely stay there again.

Although the Motel is not in the 5 star arena, I would recommend this Motel to everybody, its location is none better, the rooms are very clean & very comfortable.......the Staff are helpful as you would need.......if you are considering the costs & value look no further, ....its an all round great place to stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of the same standard, some ppl would say Old Style but its very good value

The Central Motel was our choice of accommodation for a special weekend away to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. What a terrific location, so close to everything on offer in beautiful Port Fairy. Cheery helpful greeting on arrival, lovely room, comfortable bed, we were able to walk to the restaurants for dinner and breakfast as well as taking in some of the many walking tracks on offer. We certainly recommend staying here and cannot wait until we get back to enjoy it all again!

We have stayed at Central Motel previously and thought it was very good but this time were very disappointed. We stayed on the 31st August, so not peak time. The room was advertised as deluxe but in my experience I have paid less that $160 and received far better ammenties. There was no soap in either dispensers, shower or hand basin, room was very dated and the tap for drinking water was next to toilet in bathroom! and I would hate to stay there in summer as the Air Con was a fan in the wardrobe. The location is the only plus I can think of at this time.
I mentioned the no soap as we we were checking out and I guess what really upset me was the "Did Not Care Attitude" Would prefer to walk a bit further into town that to stay there again.

Room Tip: check facilities first

Our overnight stay for a family stay ( four rooms plus cot )was everything needed. Lovely rooms, clean and comfortable. Greats central position just off Main Street and in the central hub of the town,very close to restaurants and breakfast needs but also extremely quiet. Thank you to Peter and staff.
