“Cosy and Comfortable - PERFECT location in Port Fairy!”
Reviewed 19 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We absolutely loved this accommodation. We had everything we could have hoped for and the (new) couch was very comfortable. The gas log fire was easy to operate and put to good use on our winter holiday in Port Fairy. You couldnt get a better location as the main street was only a minutes walk away so all the beautiful restaurants of Port Fairy were easy to get to without having to start the car!

The property is gorgeous - a little cottage set in an orchard of fruit trees - would be amazing to see the trees in Spring and Summer, but just as impressive in winter. There were extra blankets supplied but I think blankets would be a great addition for winter visits, however, the fire kept the lounge room very warm! We were also allowed to stay until 12 noon on our departure day which was really handy as we were travelling with my elderly mother and it takes us a little more time to get ready - thank you! Loved the gorgeous crockery and we all had our favourite to use. I put photos on my facebook page and got many comments about how gorgeous the cottage was..

I would highly recommend this property which we found on AIRB&B and thought the rates were really reasonable and much more homely and more comfortable than a cabin in a caravan park!

Thanks for the fantastic review, we are really glad to you know you enjoyed the cottage & all it has to offer. The fruit trees are great in Summer & as the Cottage is well shaded it stays rather cool during the warmer days. I agree that is is always great when you can leave the keys at home & walk a short distance to the cafe's & shops!
Glad you enjoyed your time in Port Fairy, hopefully we will see you back again one day.
Kind regards,
Langley's Port Fairy Booking Service

“Most uncomfortable sofa EVER!”
Reviewed 13 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

This cottage is in a good location, only a 5-10 minute walk from Port Fairy's shops and restaurants. It has a lovely garden and the cottage itself has much rustic charm. HOWEVER, a lack of comfortable seating lets it down. It has a huge L-shaped sofa in the main living area which is worn, stained and consists of cheap foam cushions on a chipboard base. It was so uncomfortable and impossible to sit on for more than about 20 minutes at a time. If you are childless or have older children and plan to be out most evenings, then this cottage would be a good place to stay. On the other hand, if, like us, you have young children and are planning to spend your evenings watching movies curled up on the sofa, then I strongly recommend you rent somewhere else.

***NEW COUCHES*** Thanks for the review Sarah, we agree that Plover's Rest is in a great location central to town & hosts a quaint, private, native setting in the garden. We can now happily inform you & any future travelers that the owners have recently replaced the couches & you will now find the seating fit for families to snuggle up & enjoy their family movie night.
