Reviewed 6 August 2014

I stayed in a 2 bed apartment with two friends for a girl's weekend away in Port Fairy. We got a good internet deal. Reception was friendly and helpful - I had booked 2 single beds in one of the rooms and mentioned it on checkin and they had forgotten about it. A quick room change before we had even been handed the keys and it was all sorted. Good quality furnishings, great heating and electric blankets for the coldest winter days! Close to everything. I would definitely stay again. The only very small issue - the drinking water in Port Fairy is not the nicest, so the bottled water provided in the fridge should be complimentary.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled with friends

I really like Port Fairy. It's a beautiful little town on the Great Ocean Road. We spent 2 nights here early August, in a 2 bedroom apartment. The check-in was friendly, uncomplicated and quick. The 2 bedroom apartment is upstairs, with a decent size living room, dining area and kitchen. There are 2 bedrooms, one king size and the other with a queen bed. Bathroom is very comfortable and practical - more so than some other hotels/apartments I've stayed in! The kitchen is very well appointed - good quality appliances (Bosch dishwasher, SMEG oven) and very clean. There is even a washer and dryer if you are planning a longer stay. We opted for the 2 bedroom apartment so that we can make breakfast and dinner ourselves. Note though, that the 2 bedroom apartments are not serviced, but that did not bother us for a 2 night stay. If you prefer service, opt for the 1 bedroom apartment instead. I will definitely visit the Victoria apartments again - I found their website featured accurate information on their rooms and services provided, so no hidden surprises when you arrive. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the apartments are centrally located. Well done Victoria Apartments!

We have just had a 2 night stay at this property, it was truly lovely, from the time we checked in untill we checked out was great, just like your ouw apartment, 2 b/rooms 1 b/room and full kitchen with eauropean laundry which was handy as we got wet going around Griffith Island and threw all our wet clothes in the dryer.Lock up garage and walking distance to most attractions and some great restaurants as well, as must visit is the pub across the road The Caladonian, real traditional pub meal but very enjoyable and well priced, lots of tourist in there when we ate there. We also ate at Merrijig Kitchen, nice but over priced to what you get, possibly suits some people thou

Stayed in a 2 BR apartment with secure garage for the car. The apartment was very clean, spacious and extremely well appointed. The facility seems quite new and is in excellent condition. The location is right in the centre of town and next to the excellent Victoria Hotel. This was a great find and we will check it out again at some time in the future

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are better positioned

The Victoria Apartments are very clean, modern, comfortable and everything that you need for a break in Port Fairy. Right on the main street, you can walk everywhere. We had no trouble with noise as some reviews state, we were upstairs in a 2 bedroom apartment, very helpful and friendly staff.

We stayed in a 2 bdrm upstairs apartment with secure parking which we got a great deal for online. Close enough to Warrnambool for the Kids4Fun festival but far enough away to feel like it was a true get away not just for the kids. Port Fairy is as gorgeous as I remember with doable walks that cover a marina, national parklands and beachfronts. The service was very friendly with great advice on the best pub to eat at on a windy Sunday night (Caledonian Inn), child friendly, band not too land, lively atmosphere and good food; The kids loved the lolli shop in town only a 5 min walk away. A huge tip - buy bottled water from the IGA around the corner as the local water is utterly revolting! We were lucky and only had people staying on the bottom level for 1 of our 3 night stay as yes you can hear them. TV in the kids room meant a lie in for us and was a novelty they enjoyed. The apartments were a great use of the space with generous living areas and a balcony that would have been lovely if the weather wasn't so windy. Missed a second bathroom but we coped.
The beautiful GOR is an easy hour + 1/2 or so drive away through gorgeous farmlands and if you come straight down the Princess Hwy from/to Geelong and turn off at/to Colac you avoid the most tortious part of the winding roads without missing the awesome view of the Apostles, London Bridge, Arch etc. Lovely cheese factory at Timboon to enjoy and grab a few things for a picnic at Port Campbell.
All up a great area for a family getaway.

Room Tip: Upstairs might be the lesser evil despite the stairs with a lovely huge balcony

Stayed at the Drill Hall. Three bedrooms with queen beds and a twin bed room, large hall and kitchen and a little backyard with a gate to park the car. All renovated. Lovely accommodation. Only negative is it has only one bath/toilet and very sloooow internet. Excellent sleep quality. Hall has a heater, other rooms electric blanket. Check in was a breeze. Across the road is the Caledonian (Stump) that is open till 8 pm. Good food but seemed a bit pricey for its location. Surprisingly the apartment had very many TV channels, something we missed all through our GOR trip :) a very efficient and friendly front office. Glad we stayed here. We parked on the street.
