This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in fullstop. The welcome was very warm and genuine; the hotel was beautiful and tastefully decorated; the breakfast was first rate. Just a short walk to the city centre. we will definitely be staying here again next time Bristol Rovers play Torquay!!

Room Tip: Our room was number 8 at the front. The bed was very comfy and I can completely recommend booking th...

Had a lovely stay. Room very comfortable, we had a suite with lovely sea views. The accommodation was close to shops and not too far from the harbour. Good hosts and excellent breakfast with so much choice. Would definitely recommend. We will be visiting again this year.

We booked the luxury suite for a family weekend based on prior reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout, Terri and Bernard are wonderful hosts, engaging people and providers of a warm, welcoming home from home environment. The breakfast and attention to detail are just wonderful, we've travelled and stayed in hotels a lot and theirs is one of the best. We enjoyed it so much, we're going back this weekend to try out the gothic suite :-)
The luxury suite easily accommodates a family of 4 in style and comfort, the bathroom is heavenly, well worth a visit and well worth the tariff.

I stayed at the Ascot Hotel between 28th - 30th March 2012 and it was fantastic. From Terri coming out checking we were the "Smiths" when we arrived to the breakfasts, beds etc etc. Terri and Bernard who run the hotel can not do enough for you. The drive where you park is quite awkward and on the first day we were going out in the car Bernard ran out of the hotel and directed us so we could get out without any problems, they also let us keep some fresh crab that we had bought in their fridge with no problems at all. We stayed in a twin room and the beds were very very comfortable. The room was a nice size. The only slight niggle I have is that the toilets are saniloos and it takes about 4 flushes to clear it and the shower is more like a dribble. The breakfast starts off with a fruit platter every day and then you can have your choice of hot cooked breakfast. as well as this they have all the cereals you can imagine and white/brown bread for toast. All in all I would stay here again in a heartbeat. As well as the hotel being clean the staff that run the hotel will make you want to come back. A fabulous hotel and experience.

Fabulous boutique hotel. Friendly atmosphere and beautiful rooms and a very warm welcome! The additional touches of fresh fruit platter's with breakfast shows the love and care the owners have put into this hotel to make our stay extra special.

Nice and easy to find, great location, 15 minute walk to princess theatre and centre. Excellent friendly welcome and this continued thoroughly out the stay. The room was very clean and very well laid out. Bed was extremely comfortable and loved the decoration, gothic style. Breakfast included and well worth it. Although next to a road myself and partner were not disturbed by any outside noise (awesome nights sleep) Will def use again
