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

Had a lovely time at the weekend, We felt utterly spoilt by having a wonderful greeting from James including wine and scones. Proper coffee, real milk and jelly beans in the room, the most gorgeous toiletries in the bathroom. As for breakfast so much choice it was all wonderful. We will be staying again hopefully with more time to totally... More

We stayed one night en route to Edinburgh for the New Year. The first thing to strike us was James' attention to detail. We were welcomed with mulled wine wine, mince pies and James' hospitality. The decor was beautifully designed and excellently completed. We didn't eat dinner but it is, apparently, very good. The breakfast was very well done. We... More

It seems a little trite to say this is a bed and breakfast, when it is in fact, so much more. The host James and his sidekicks are just the sort of people one wants to meet when travelling. Nothing is too much and you are quickly taken into the fold and made to feel part of the scene. Naturally... More

The other reviews have summed the place up perfectly but I just had to praise it myself. My partner and I stayed for one night for our anniversary and wished we had stayed longer. The second we arrived James greeted us with drinks and homemade cake (delicious!) and showed us his extensive DVD collection in case we fancied watching one... More
