We were looking for an overnight stop off on our drive from Adelaide to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road. We chose St Patrick's as it looked a bit different and the Tripadvisor reviews were so positive (with a puzzling exception). It is in a country town, about 10 minutes drive from Port Fairy. Our experience was absolutely excellent. Vivienne, the owner, could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We had room 5, a lovely spacious room with a 5+ star bathroom. Vivienne recommended various possibilities for dinner. We went to the most local, Alix's - it proved to be an excellent choice which I have reviewed separately. We walked there (about 10 minutes away) so I could have a drink. As Vivienne predicted, when they heard we were from "the Convent" (St Patrick's was a convent in the past) they drove us home. We were particularly fortunate as we were staying on an evening when Vivienne was entertaining a group of local people. She invited us to join them after our dinner and we had a most enjoyable hour or two with a group of really friendly and interesting people. Breakfast was excellent. This was a great place to stay, and we had a really memorable evening. It is a long way from Scotland - but we hope to be back again!
