This was our first visit to Ashleigh House for family. We were there for three great nights on the top floor with a spacious room and wet room. Our kids loved the bunked beds and Oscar the dog. He was very friendly. We couldn't of asked for more from Dawn she made our stay very pleasant. We had a parking...

Thank you for this lovely review. I am very pleased that Oscar was a big hit with your children. Oscar certainly does make lots of friends without making a nuisance of himself even managing to 'win over' those who are not especially keen on dogs. I look forward to your next visit.

Another excellent visit with Dawn & her dog Oscar. We had room no. 7 with walk in shower/wet room, window and skylight for plenty of air flow, needed with the warm weather we had. The breakfast is excellent, with a good selection. It's sited about half a mile from the harbor, up hill, the pubs on route were great. Recommended,...

I hate to use clichés but 'home from home' is an understatement for Ashleigh house. We got a wonderful warm welcome from Dawn & David, the proprietors. Then we got introduced to the official welcoming committee, Oscar the dog. He's lovely. We were made to feel like part of the family right from the start. Ashleigh House is traditional guest...

Thank you for this wonderful review Jim. It was a real pleasure to meet you both. Having run this guest house for over 20 years I feel that it is absolutely necessary to enjoy the job or it is simply not possible to make guests feel at home and welcome. I really do enjoy this job and I am glad...

A lovely place to stay and dawn couldn't have been more welcoming, we pulled up in the car and there she was on her way back from walking Oscar the dog. Our room was on the 3rd floor and again lovely with a quirky hidden bathroom with toiletries and nice soft towels. We were given our own key as we...

Thank you for this lovely review Eileen. I am delighted that you have so many positive comments for the guest house and for me. Ashleigh House is situated in a quiet residential street a very short walk from the harbour where Torquays restaurants, shops, attractions and bus stops can be found.

I am very pleased that you enjoyed your visit Alison. The cleanliness of the bathroom is of paramount importance to most people, including myself. So I pay particular attention to it. I still enjoy my job after doing it for 24 years. I am glad it shows.

While we had the luxury of fabulous weather we also had the comfort of a stay at Ashleigh House. The dog friendly accommodation was more than adequate for our needs and apart from the lung breaker hill was really close to the centre of Torquat and all that it has to offer.

Thank you for this review Marie. The wonderful weather certainly does made a break in Torquay perfect and there is so much to see and do locally. But the cooling sea breeze does catch a lot of people. So remember to use the sun cream.

Very friendly and welcoming place. Sadly we didn't know that this was a pet friendly home and dogs had previously been in the room, as I have an allergy to dogs. Other than that all was great. Good breakfast with good choice. Would 100% stay again if it was animal free.

Yes, Ashleigh House is a pet friendly establishment and we have our own very friendly pet, Oscar. It is a pity that this reviewer did not read the reviews or description before booking as it is made very clear that dogs are welcome. I am very pleased that they were happy with all other aspects of their stay though.
