Positives first :

Beautiful period building and grounds, nice rooms furnished in keeping with the style and ambience of the place. Great service, warm welcome.

Not so good :

Food was disappointing, the cheese board was particularly pedestrian. For the price I hoped for something much better.

Overall a nice place, a better restaurant (chef) would elevate the whole deal and make it rather special.

Thank you for your feed back. I am sorry you felt that the food was not up to scratch, I am always keen to hear feedback on all aspects of the hotel. I can only deduce that you had a less than perfect meal on the night and this of course is something that I have brought to the attention of the chef. As you will be able to see from the majority of reviews, our food is normally reviewed very highly and I feel your comment that the hotel requires a new chef to be rather harsh. We will try to ensure that our meals are more than acceptable to our guests and strive to make sure all of our guests have a wonderful time at Ash House Hotel.

Stayed here again on our way through to Devon, but will be returning shortly for longer. House and grounds are very special and everything about this hotel is just wonderful, from the friendly greeting (usually by the owner) to the lovely calming rooms and the oh so comfy beds. The food must be tasted to be believed, fresh (much straight from the garden) cooked to perfection and beautifully presented by truly friendly staff who seem genuinely to want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. A big thank you to them for, once again, making our trip so memorable. Can't wait to return.

Excellent stays in the Ambrosia Superior room and Crispin Room. It was really lovely being able to have a drink in the bar in a relaxed atmosphere too. Being Brits but currently living in the USA we truly appreciated the British feel of the place, polite, calm and efficient. Breakfast on the Sunday morning was lovely in the conservatory too. Thank you - will definitely consider staying when in the area again.

This old house and it's grounds has been carefully and beautifully restored by Gordon - who also makes a superb 'Mine Host'. Excellent food and well chosen wines to go with it. A lovely quiet location ideally placed for touring the local area. No need to say more about the food and rooms - it's all been said but do try and get someone to take you down to collect your own eggs for breakfast from the amazing chickens at the bottom of the garden!

Room Tip: 4 of us had 3 different rooms between us and they were all excellent -

Lovely hotel with great staff who have a genuine interest in making sure your stay is a good one. The building and grounds are gorgeous. Breakfast in the conservatory is a great start to the day. Rooms are large and comfortable, and the hotel bar is snug. We would certainly return to stay here.
