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.

We had 2 rooms booked for my elderly parents booked through wotif. My mother had fallen ill & needed to return home to Melbourne quickly to get to hospital & we therefore needed to cancel the bookings. After calling & explaining the situation we were told that our "contract" was with wotif & that it was nothing to do with... More

You booked your stay with Wotif. Under their guidelines printed on their confirmation sheet it states: "Cancellations or changes to bookings for this room will not be permitted for any reason. Once confirmed a booking cannot be refunded or altered in any way" That is Wotifs policy. When you book with Wotif they hold your money not the motel. The... More

Like Port Fairy itself this place is a little over rated. Very expensive for what you get. Its ok but it needs some TLC. If it was a third less I wouldn't have a complaint. Shows some signs of ongoing updating but it needs to be finished.

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry you thought Port Fairy was over rated. At Christmas time the town is inundated with tourists and holiday makers who are in love with the town, the beach and the many great restaurants and coffee shops. Our prices at Christmas time are market driven and compare favourably with other accommodation in the town. More
