We spent three nights in this wonderful establishment and can't rate it highly enough. James is the most incredible and generous host from the moment that you step through the door. The house and the gardens are immaculate: clean, beautifully decorated with the little touches that set it into luxury eg REN toiletries. James is a fabulous baker so there... More

Worth a detour, in fact a destination property if you are traveling North. No doubt this is a stop over you will want to return to. The hotel is located a short walk from the historic town centre and close to a superb park. The welcome is bold but friendly and quit relaxed so as soon as you arrive you... More

Best B&B in the UK, not just Lancaster! I would also recommend the Ashton over any of the hotels in the area. As my daughter is in uni here I have had to make a lot of trips to Lancaster and have stayed in hotels & B&B's, this is by far the best. James is a star and has obviously... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights; it was my first time but my wife had been several times before and had extolled the Ashton's many virtues. As it turned out, everything she said turned out to be true. I could go into detail about the warm welcome (with drinks and homemade cake), the excellent breakfast, the smart, clever... More

Not our first and hopefully not our last stay. And it gets better every time. I don't want to repeat all the wonderful accolades for James and The Ashton - although they are all well deserved. James has created a little bit of magic which stays with you on leaving. Certainly my most favourite hotel. Thank you James, you are... More

the Ashton is perfect for a relaxing break and for people who enjoy the good things in life.Every detail has been thought through all you have to do is just relax and enjoy. The Ashton far exceeds service and quality of many 5 star hotels. I really wish we lived closer and would be able to stay more regularly

You sometimes read great reviews and wonder whether they can all be true, well with The Ashton they are. James was a perfect host. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights (not long enough), the room was gorgeous with lots of beautiful and delicious touches, to make our stay just that extra special. We were treated to refreshments of... More

If I ever run a hotel/b&b I would model it on this place. I spent very little time there as I checked in late and had to leave early but even so this place is wonderful. James has a good balance of friendly but not intrusive, the rooms are decorated to a high standard with an eye for design. The... More

We stayed here valentines weekend, and it's a fantastic hotel! James was a wonderful host, helping with our bags, treating us to a glass of wine and scones on arrival, showing us to the rooms, booking us a taxi in the evening and advising of where to go. Nothing seemed too much trouble; certainly five star hospitality! The house and... More
