The welcome, hospitality, quality of room and food were all absolutely amazing. The hotel is tastefully decorated, maintained to the highest standards and the attention to detail in everything is noticeable. The staff have the ability to provide a service second to none but in an unobtrusive way which makes you feel totally comfortable and at home. We have no... More

I loved the Ashton!!! The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The bathroom and the products are simply gorgeous and I never had a shower like it in the UK! Didn't know they could have that water pressure. The house is beautifully decorated and a real pleasure to be in. The detail is stunning, candles and music all so pleasant... More

My room was beautiful and the bathroom amazing. Jame's has an amazing eye for design so the rooms are very stylish. As usual, the breakfast was lovely and James is such a welcoming host, you feel like you are visiting an old friend.

We stayed for one night but wish it could have been longer. James was a great host and very amenable to our early arrival. The room was lovely, the setting very peaceful and the breakfast was amazing....loads of choice and beautifully cooked. We hope to be back for longer next time.

Just loved this place. Everything you read is true. James is the perfect host and welcomed us with a glass of wine / cup of tea and home baking when we arrived. We had to leave early each morning and he was completely accommodating. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The breakfasts are second to none. You cannot ask for more... More

I don't normally write reviews, but felt I just had to make an exception and share my experience with others. I booked two rooms, both were furnished to a high standard, tasteful in decor with attention to every detail, the toiletries were true quality, more like a boutique hotel. We loved all of the decor in the reception rooms chosen... More

Dear Trish J, Glad it was a happy accident! The attic room is our biggest room, it's great in the summer due to its amount of space and cooling airiness to it. The price is what you get because you won't get another B&B like it! The only real difference between a luxury Bed & Breakfast & a 5 star... More
