A first class B & B in all respects. We had a one night stay on our way to Scotland and wished we had booked a night for our return. From the beautiful room with the fabulous shower,to the great breakfast,we were not disappointed. James is the perfect host,and he organised a restaurant and transport for us that evening. I... More

After several hectic months at work we were really looking forward to the start of our staycation, making our way slowly down to Cornwall. We chose The Ashton for our first night because of the great reviews here - we were not disappointed! We've stayed in some first class hotels - this B&B offers more than most first class places....

It was fabulous. From the wine scone jam and cream on arrival the squishy bed the movies the fabby shower and wonderful smelly treats the newspaper of our choice lying outside our door in the morning to the amazing breakfast spread and (Yes James) the perfect boiled egg and soldiers what more does one need. Heaven. Thank you for looking... More

We arrived at The Ashton to a very warm welcome from James. He directed us to a lounge and served us a complimentary drink (for us, a white wine) and a slice of homemade carrot and pineapple cake, both were delicious. James was friendly and helpful, giving us tips to make our visit to Lancaster better. We stayed in the... More

We stayed at the Ashton after our wedding last December, and the one word to describe this B & B is superb. James make you feel so welcome and the service is second to none. The bedroom was luxurious and so comfortable. There was an excellent choice for breakfast with anything you could possibly wish for. A lovely way to... More

Our stay at The Ashton blew me and my husband away! We chose to stay here for our wedding night as we had heard so many good reports, without hesitation we booked the downstairs room. The room is beautifully presented with stunning pieces of furniture. A huge bed which was very very comfortable. The best part about our room was... More

Probably the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. The breakfast menu is so much more than the usual offerings. We loved our room which was classy, comfortable and peaceful. A great nights sleep. Make sure you walk up through the nearby park for the great view and the antiques centre next door is fun for a browse too.

Dear Crid16, So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We do pride ourselves on the breakfast selection & I change the menu often to stop regular guests getting bored. Although everyone seems to have a favourite & rarely ventures from that. Although this month's addition herby mushrooms with poached, eggs & bacon on a doorstep of granary toast has been a... More

The Ashton totally lives up to its reviews. As well appointed as any boutique hotel, very attractive rooms, great smellies, good selection on tea tray plus good biscuits and sweets. Comfortable bed, a super host in James who makes a very mean breakfast. We were welcomed with Pimms and a homemade scone and strawberries. The star is Barney the dog... More

Stayed here for a night and it was lovely, James was a good host, tea coffee and cake all provided free of charge (homemade too!) we stayed in a classic room which was fine and well presented but I expect if you pay more and stay in one of the better rooms you get the wow factor which we didn't...

The Ashton is a wonderful find for us. The location is just outside Lancaster Centre so everything is readily assessible but is so peaceful and tranquil. Our room at the top of the house was wonderful and had everything we wanted. James was the perfect host and we felt really welcome. The breakfast is to die for with so much... More

Dear Kevin, Sorry about the delay in replying to your lovely review. As you'll know the end of the University term was manic & then Graduation week was a flurry of Mums & Dads.
