We stayed at Ashleigh House for six nights in August 2014 and loved every minute. The room was very clean and Homely, always plenty of biscuits on the tray! Dawn was very friendly and went the extra mile to make us feel at home. Our Son loved Oscar (the dog), he is a child friendly dog and very well behaved.... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay here. The room was very clean and tidy and breakfast was excellent. Dawn is very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Wonderful location near to Torquay's shops, bars and restaurants. Would definitely return.

We stayed in Ashleigh house some days in July, and it was perfect! Dawn is very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately, and our children loved Oscar, the dog. The room was comfortable, the breakfast delicious and the location is central, only a short walk from the sea and town. If it should be Torquay for us again,... More

We stayed hear in August 2014 and would highly recommend Ashleigh House to everyone. The rooms were clean and tidy and the food was excellent. The only downside was walking back up the hill from the sea front as it was a little steep, but if you don't have any disabilities, this won't be an issue.

We took a little while to choose our guest house whilst staying in Torquay, and we were so lucky to come across this little gem. 8 of us(2 families) in total stayed here..4 adults and 4 children. We pulled up outside this beautiful guest house with parking outside, to be greeted by Dawn & lovable Oscar the spaniel. We were... More

Initially there was an issue with our booking (this was my fault not theirs) but Dawn couldn't do enough for me to get it sorted and after a short 30 minutes we were thankfully booked in. Dawn (owner, cook, cleaner and all round worker) - Dawn was instantly warming and inviting and after a 4½ hour road trip this was... More

Dawnsmale, Owner at Ashleigh House, responded to this review

Thank you for this lovely review. I would just like to clarify that the problem with the booking was simply that the room was not quite ready when these guests arrived so they had a short wait whilst I finished preparing it. Rooms are available from 2 pm onwards. I suggest that anyone wishing to arrive earlier lets me know... More

Dawn was warmly welcoming, provided a very pleasant room, scrupulously clean with daily cleaning and fresh towels. Breakfast was excellent - a wide range of freshly prepared options, good portions, hot dishes served on hot plates. Plenty of information about activities etc available in the area and Dawn was happy to give helpful advice. Her assistant Oscar the springer spaniel... More

We stayed for one night and had a lovely time. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean and the breakfast was lovely. The decor was very nice too. It reminded me a little bit of Hyacinth Bucket's house! Dawn was very welcoming and the information in our room covered everything. She even offers to dog-sit! Can't fault the location either....

Dawn was very welcoming when I phoned up to book, and when we arrived. The room was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The garden is lovely too, with Dawn's floral arrangements brightening up not just the hotel but the whole street! Dawn's cooked breakfasts were perhaps the highlight of the stay. There was a lot of choice on the menu... More
