Had the pleasure of staying here for my birthday. The room was excellent. Luxury for our holidays at Port Fairy. Couldn't fault the accommodation at all. Hosts were extremely helpful. Highly recommend a stay here.

Spacious room with large bathroom situated at the back of the accommodation complex, so nice and quiet. Good air-conditioning system and hot blankets, plus comfortable bed, made the stay during winter very cosy and comfortable. Easy access, with walking distance, to local pubs, restaurants and shops.

This is a great place to stay in Port Fairy. And Port Fairy is a fun place to stay. Kevin and his wife are very familiar with the village and can offer advise for walks, restaurants and general history of the area. It is so like Mitford of the Jan Koran novels, a small and friendly town where people look... More

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
