Great location and updated rooms

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Apr 2021
The Ashmont Motor Inn & Apartments is centrally located within walking distance to the main shopping areas and streets.

You can leave your car at night and head to dinner and enjoy a few wines or other drinks, and walk happily home. The main tourist attractions are a short drive, bike ride, or decent walk away [perfect for getting your 10,000 steps!].

This property has apartments and hotel rooms. I stayed in a hotel queen room on the ground level, with no set parking space on a first-come basis.

When you arrive, you are greeted by one of the hosts - the ever-busy-on-the-phone Dean [an in joke] - a nice fella with an abundance of knowledge to share. Check-in was no fuss and quick.

During COVID, many of the rooms had an upgrade of sorts. New furniture, bed heads/mattresses, carpet and so forth. The bathrooms are still in excellent nick, so they were left untouched. For a motor inn, the basic room was huge!

Room 4 -
Queen bed, with sheets and thin duvet that was nice and warm on the increasingly colder nights. The bed was so comfortable that getting to sleep wasn't hard. The rooms are quite soundproof, and obviously, that also depends on the type of guest next door or upstairs.

The room had a workbench, with plenty of powerpoints for chargers and the like. There was also a dining table, kitchenette complete with fridge and microwave, and lounge room with a comfy sofa and a small table. There are the usual amenities in the cupboard, but no safe. There is an air conditioner for heating/cool.

The bathroom had sturdy tiling and an amply spaced shower with great water pressure. A big plus was the three bright lights above the bathroom mirror - so helpful for applying makeup, sunscreen, or just drying your hair. Another big tick for me was the towels' quality - thick, warm and luxuriously wide. YAY!

I thoroughly enjoyed staying here; it was quiet, cosy, and secure- but most of all, great value for money. I look forward to staying again.

Have just had 4 nights in a Queen room. The motel location is perfect for walking anywhere in town. Good size room, comfortable bed on the firm side, great shower, table, desk, sofa and the kitchenette had everything we needed. Wifi was pretty ordinary. Certainly nothing fancy to look at, and the outside stairs need work (a rusty bit sticking up that you could trip on) We really couldn’t fault much and would happily stay here again..

We have stayed in Port Douglas a number of times and have always booked ahead, but an unexpected free day between destinations on our recent road trip allowed us one night in Port Douglas. We were most fortunate that Ashmont Motor Inn had a
very comfortable Queen apartment available. It’s Bank Street location meant we could walk to everything we wanted to see. Along the river, back along the beach front and through the many quaint shops in the main streets. Highly recommended.

My wife and I just stayed in the motel section of Ashmont for three nights. Room was very clean and large for a motel. Nice sitting area to watch TV or read a book. Excellent location in the centre of Port Fairy. If you are looking for somewhere reasonably priced and comfortable I would recommend.

We stayed in the loft apartment it was modern clean and fresh. Lovely white cotton sheets and comfortable bed, large shower and nice towels with toiletries. Unfortunately we had a dog in the next property that persisted on barking at odd hours. There is also work going on at the bowls club directly behind, that started at 7am weekdays. The design of the unit was odd with the bathroom down stairs and the bedroom upstairs. Not great for a night visit.
The unit was serviced daily.

Room tip: Check room design to suit
