Had breakfast in The tearoom which was excellent with a huge selection of teas. Ruth was very friendly & gave us lots of info of the local area...

This place is located on the main road entering Port Fairy. Peaceful and quiet location, but just a few minutes drive from restaurants in town. We arrived about 7pm but thankfully, our GPS was able to help us to find Clonmara in the dark. Fortunately, we had called ahead to say we would be arriving late, and Doug (the manager/owner?)...

We had a brief overnights stay in Port Fairy in the two bedroom Arrondoon cottage. The cottage was warm and cozy and brimming with old world charm. The house is cute and quaint and gardens are beautiful. Only disappointment was the quality of the towels. Port and chocolate a lovely touch!

We stayed the night in one of the beautiful cottages. We were unable to meet Doug for checkin but he ensured the lights and fire was on to welcome us on arrival, which was fantastic. Complimentary port and chocolates was lovely by the fire. I loved all the personal touches around the cottage from the fresh milk in the fridge...
