“Wonderful!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We arrived early on the Saturday of bank holiday and Terri was very accommodating and welcoming. We parked very easily, but I guess it could get a bit tight when busy.
We took the 10 min walk downhill onto the seafront and returned to a beautiful room which was a good size, despite it claiming to be on the small size. Everything was so clean. The corner shower room was small but plenty big enough for us. I loved the fact that fresh milk is provided in the little fridge on the landing - I usually have to go out and get my own because I cant stand the UHT stuff. Free and reliable WI-FI another bonus - I've spent £100s a night in other hotels and still had to pay fro WI-FI.
As for breakfast - delicious! Fresh fruit, cereals, breads and pastries and that is on top of the cooked breakfast which was 100% to my taste and the best I've had in a long time.
I've stayed in lots of Torquay hotels before on business, but if I ever got the choice I would stay here every time.

Nice people, a warm welcome from Teri, a good clean and comfortable room and an excellent breakfast (full English but with a strong French influence) add up to a very good stay and represents great value for money. Add to that a great recommendation for a restaurant for dinner, and some unexpected good weather and it all ensured we had a very enjoyable time in Torquay

From the time we got there we were greeted by Terri who made us feel very welcome.The hotel is ideally placed if you like a short walk into town but away from the noise and traffic.The room was very clean,breakfast was very nice with a lovely touch with the fruit.We had a lovely stay and would recommend this very highly.

From my first phone call, when Bernard and Terri went out of their way to accommodate our family, we were very pleased and impressed with this lovely hotel. Beautiful rooms, very comfortable beds with high quality bed linen, lovely bathrooms, amazing food and a convenient position. Lovely biscuits on tray, and real milk in fridge!

We treated ourselves to the luxury suite meaning that we could put the cot and children in the bedroom and sit in the lounge room with doors between them and us. Or rather between them and our lovely babysitters (thanks mum and Keith) while we went to the theatre(15 min walk downhill). Seemed to be an easier walk uphill through the town though, picking up a doner en route ;-)

We will definitely return and recommend to all, may need to book early...

Room Tip: Smokers are permitted to smoke on the balcony outside the luxury suite!

Unless you are an incredibly picky soul there really is nothing to fault here. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and spotless, with thoughtful little extras like binoculars in the window so you can make the most of the view and hot chocolate sachets (regular and low cal). Breakfasts were exquisitely cooked and presented and the welcome is friendly. A top notch place to stay if you fancy a break on the English Riviera.

Room Tip: Go for the top suite. You'll get a sea view, a huge bathroom and calming decor of greens.

Just returned from a fantastic evening at the Ascot House Hotel! We would have no hesitation in recommending everything about this stylish, friendly boutique hotel. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and taken to our lovely double room which had everything we needed - tea, coffee facilities and an excellent hairdryer! Breakfast in the morning was delicious and the fresh fruit while you waited was a a lovely surprise! We could not recommend this hotel any higher and will definitely be returning! Hopefully, next time to one of the suites which are superb! great value for more! Thank you for a lovely stay!
