Updates and Makeover

We never sit still at the Fairway Motor Inn and we have been using the quiet time over the past few months to work on some updates and a bit of a makeover. We started of with a extra clinical clean of our rooms due to Covid to make sure your rooms are all clean and safe. Then we started on some bigger makeovers including;

  • Replacing all of the lounges in our downstairs rooms and slowly doing the same with our upstairs rooms.
  • New colour schemes happening so rooms each have a new look
  • New floating floorboards put in all rooms in the kitchenette area
  • Freshen up of the gardens and painting

Making sure your stay is Covid safe

The management and staff of the Fairway Motor Inn are committed to ensuring our guests can have a safe and enjoyable stay with us, especially during the current Covid conditions. As a result we have put a number of policies and procedures in place including;

  1. We have had all of our carpet areas throughout the motel cleaned with a professional carpet cleaner.
  2. We have purchased our own professional steam cleaner and have steam cleaned and sanitized all the walls, floors, furniture, kitchens, bathrooms, windows and touchable surfaces in all of our rooms. We will also steam clean each room after our guests depart.
  3. All outside areas have been pressure cleaned
  4. All curtains and outer bedding has been professionally cleaned
  5. The managers have completed an online Covid 19 Infection Control Training Course


We will welcome you the same as we would usually do so - with a smile. Just like you we are following the guidelines so everything here is as normal as possible and doing everything we can to ensure your stay is comfortable, safe and enjoyable.

Hall of Fame Winners

South Coast Regional TourismAs some of you may know we take great pride in our property and are regulary recgonised with various Tourism Awards. We were once again Finalists in the South Coast Regional Tourism Awards for 2016. We came up against some very stiff competition in our category competing against some big name motels so this time we were not surprised not to take out a Gold Medal.

We were delighted to find out though that we won entry into the Hall of Fame, which is recognition for having won our category for Executive Accommodation 3 times which is quite an achievement in itself considering all those we have had to compete against over the years.

We would like to thank all of those involved and acknowledge the hard work that people put in to make sure that South Coast Tourism delivers a great experience to our customers.
