Perfect central location and quality rooms ideal place to stay when travelling through South West Victoria. The proprietors and staff are friendly, helpful and have an excellent network of local hotel and restaurant partnerships.

Very friendly staff and excellent location in the centre of town. The room had clearly had a coat of paint and was nice and clean but it still felt dated, biggest downside was the lack of air con. OK for a overnight stay but this was the most expensive motel we used when in Victoria and was not the same...

The motel has had a refresh since the last time we visited. The rooms are not big, but comfortable and have all the requirements. I like it because it has that 'holiday-beach' feel. There wasn't an air-conditioner but a heater and pedestal fan in the room. That was fine for my holiday. Everything was clean and in order. Nice, uncomplicated...

We had a very good stay at the Central Motel in beautiful and quiet Port Fairy. The central location is very good. Rooms are not too big but well equipped and maintained. Parking space is enough and had one entry and one exit, which makes access easy.

A neat and tidy hotel right in the middle of the downtown strip. The owner was helpful and eager to make sure our stay was great! I would recommend the Central Motel and Port Fairy as a great landing spot along the GOR!!

Our room was great! we hired the family room as I was travelling with my elderly mother and daughter. All the amenities catered for my mother ie walk in shower, plenty of light (she is vision impaired) and the location was excellent!

Hi Barbara, We're pleased you had an enjoyable stay with us and yes room 1 is great for anyone who is a little less mobile or in a wheelchair. It's also good if you have a couple of children in that it has a queen sized bed and 2 singles. We hope to see you back here another time and...

I never cease to be amazed at how friendly the Australians are. My host was chatty and helpful giving advice on where to eat and what to do. The accommodation was clean, well-decorated in a crisp modern colourway and more than servicable. Bathroom clean with loads of fluffy towels. Wortham return visit.

The Motel is an old motel but the rooms are bright, clean, comfortable and a good size. For the price I would recommend it and of course would stay there again. Should also mention it is quiet and you have a choice of ground or first floor rooms.

Did I say that the owners and staff are friendly?! In a town known for tourism where during holiday season the local population is outnumbered by tourists, it would be very easy for businesses to take a downbeat matter of fact attitude to the level of trade; not so at the Central Motel! Peter and his staff are ready to...
