We stayed at the Ashburn for 3 nights when in the area for a family celebration. The hotel is pleasant - and the staff are really helpful and friendly - but our room was a little tired. The bed was comfortable and there was tea and coffee making equipment and an iron and ironing board in the room. The bathroom was clean and fresh towels were provided every day.
The breakfast is wonderful - cereals and fruit juice are freely available, and there is a wide menu which allows you to select your favourite foods. The sliced ham in particular is out of this world! The waitress who served us at breakfast was a lovely person who could not be friendlier or more helpful.
The only drawback was that Room 6 has a window that opens onto the rear of the hotel - and the fan from (I assume) the air-conditioning downstairs is right outside - the noise was not too loud, but it never stopped...!! We were forced to have the window closed, even though we hate this, as neither of us could sleep because of the incessant humming. I was very glad that the recent heat-wave had passed...
As a place to stay for a few nights, the hotel is excellent value, and offers a good base from which to explore the surrounding area, as it is close to the railway station.
