Friendly and warm couple running the inn. A pity that the place is so dead boring. The village is a residential error no doubt and it would be little surprising that it won't last a few more seasons. It's a comfortable inn with little else but them is just a motel. Don't expect too much.

After some searching we looked in at the Ashmont. The managers were extremely helpful and we found the room quite comfortable for our one night stay. Well priced. Another good feature is that you are within walking distance of a number of good restaurants. Thanks to the managers for their helpful information. A number of the art galleries are well... More

Overnight stopover in this centrally located and quiet motel in Port Fairy. The motel was in a good location for walking around the main business area where there are plenty of eateries. Room was clean and comfortable and it has a little kitchenette that provides the basic needs. Very friendly staff helpful. The down side is the water is horrible... More

Sort of an average motor inn. Stayed here for one night during a three month tour of NZ/AUS. Room was clean and it was an easy walk downtown and to the river area. Wifi worked OK. There is a grille area if you are cooking your meals.

If looking for somewhere to stay in Port Fairy, the Ashmont is within walking distance of everything. The room was not the Ritz but, you would not expect that anyway. Agree with a previous post that the room fragrance was overpowering. The bed was comfortable but i was glad to have my own pillow. Friendly and helpful management.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the door was the overwhelming smell of room fragrance. Unnecessary! Once I'd aired the place though, everything else was fine. Well appointed: spotless room, digital TV with pay TV, biscuits available on arrival, quiet position in town and most importantly, very comfortable bed. An undercover bike lock-up would be helpful for rail... More

The owners were friendly and keen to help in any way. The room was fine but the bed was old and uncomfortable and the room overall needs to be updated as the lounge was also saggy. We were recommended the Thai restaurant next door for dinner and it was fabulous.

lovely couple run this comfortable facility. They are happy to point out the best places to visit and have meals, always ready to help. The room is of a good size, quiet, clean and slightly dated. Its close to most amenities. best for a stop over stay. Overall, i enjoyed my stay.

Lovely Couple that run it that knows the ins and outs of the town, Where to eat, what to look at, what to do. Less than 5 min walk into the main street. No problems at all, very clean, nice looking room.

Friendly owner, room a good size with everything we needed, but bathrooms in particular could do with updating. Toilet seat in particular is cheap and nasty. Nice sitting area. Sadly Port Fairy was closing up as we arrived so didn't get a chance to see the town looking busy but a lovely place from what we saw.
