Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Ascot House Hotel is an early Victorian villa(built in 1840) enthusiastically run by Bernard and Terri on a B&B basis. Ascot House Hotel is unique in that it offers 5 spacious Suites, each having its own lounge in addition to the bedroom and bathroom. Each Suite is also equipped with all the amenities expected by the modern traveller, and more - for example, a fridge in each lounge in which we provide fresh milk and filtered water. For those wanting a bit of luxury during their stay, two of the Suites have roll-top baths with separate showers. Whether you are travelling solo, as a couple, or en-famille, Ascot House Hotel offers the warmest of welcomes, a home-away-from feeling in stylish Suites, and a top-quality breakfast. Ascot House Hotel has private, off-road parking - one space for each Suite - and is most conveniently situated within a few minutes' walk the town centre, sea front, Princess Theatre, the marina, the Riviera Conference Centre and train station.

We're really pleased that you found 'an oasis of luxury and quiet' (we love your phrase!) at Ascot House during the Christmas/New Year festivities. We're also glad that you had a nose around the other suites, which we always leave open when they are ready for the next check in, since each suite is totally individual in its look, decor, type/size of bathroom and furniture and, hopefully, it may tempt you to try this or that one, should you visit us again. Very best, belated wishes for 2019!

A fab place that delivers on every level. A great size room, complimented by a lounge area with a balcony with great views. Honestly one of the best nights sleep I’ve had for a while in a hotel. The owner, I’m sorry I don’t recall her name, so genuine and hospitable,

Many thanks indeed for your review, which delighted us (Terri and Bernard), since it means that the efforts we have put in to make Ascot House what it now is, are 'hitting the spot'. We'll be delighted to welcome you again, with the returners' discount. As we say, 'we're aware that we're not the cheapest hotel in Torquay, with our average 2 or 3 rooms suite at around £100, but we feel we offer the best value for money.

Upon arrival I wish I had read the E-Mail correctly (as it had a picture of the hotel parking attacthed) as when we arrived the tight bend up to the hotel is a little bit daunting! While I was parking the car Terri had come out and was talking to Tanya and reminded me about the

Dear Tanya-Glen, Many thanks indeed for your lovely and comprehensive review of Ascot House, including ratings for our Junior Suite, which is called so since it is our least costly suite. All our suites have a lounge which is separate to the bedroom. So what are the differences with other suites and why is the Junior Suite cheaper? - lounge: no difference to the lounges per se: all the suites have similar, spacious lounges with leather sofa beds, fridges and 40 to 43” LED TVs. Some lounges also have armchairs and a day bed (eg the Sea View Suite); - bathroom: that’s where the main differences are. The Junior Suite has a small bathroom with no bath (all the other suites have a bath as well as a shower) and, as is the case in most hotels, it is part of the footprint of the room. Our more expensive suites’ bathrooms are separate (3rd) rooms, some being bigger than the bedrooms! Towels: the Junior Suite gets bath towels as opposed to the (bigger) bath sheets in the other suites bathrooms; - shower: we have an unpressurised water system so it guarantees high pressure hot water everywhere as well as thermostatically-controlled shower units. So we’re surprised at your comments, apologise and will investigate. - views: other suites have balconies or town/sea views. The Junior Suite does have a part-sea view from its lounge and the bedroom overlooks our rockery garden, which is quiet and peaceful. Please do come again with your grand child, the Sea view Suite being an excellent choice. Moreover, you will be entitled to our returners’ discount, which varies from 5 to 25%, depending on the length of your stay. Very best wishes for 2019!

This is the most lovely place that I have ever stayed. There isn't a fault with this place. Well, there was one, which has nothing to do with the hotel. Coaches park opposite the entrance which is near a bend and it's very easy to miss because of this. This is the only niggle I

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write such a complimentary and comprehensive review. As regards the coaches parked on the other side of the road, it is due to the hotel opposite not having a path or pavement between its car park and the hotel entrance, which means the coaches drop of the hotel guests there before parking. This happens once in the morning and evening, 10 minutes each time, so you were unlucky in a way. As regards our rates, even though people describe us as a 'boutique' hotel and we only offer suites of 2 or 3 rooms, we feel we offer affordable rates for people staying in a work context with, for instance, our Junior Suite, in the winter months (November to February), at £55 per night B&B (single occupancy), £75 in the peak period months (June to September). We often say to enquiring guests that, although we are not the cheapest in Torquay, we feel we consistently offer the best value.

We stayed to visit familyt nearby, and have stayed several times before. The welcome is excellent - friendly and unintrusive at the same time. Our room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. We had a sea view and the house is within 10 to 15 minutes walk to the front -

We're delighted that you liked your stay at Ascot House Hotel in our Sea View Suite, which is our favourite suite. Before we turned the hotel into suites only accommodation, what is now the Sea View Suite used to be 3 bedrooms occupying the whole top floor. We're glad you were able to walk everywhere in Torquay since everything is within easy walking distance, bearing in mind Torquay's hilly. We look forward to welcoming you again, which is something we're very proud of: 20%+ of our guests are returners.

Many thanks for your enquiry. We do take children in nearly all our suites, with our Seaview Suite being the largest since it can accommodate 2 adults and 3 children. We are open all year round but close in the off season in late November till Kate December. Please check our website for availability and prices: Kind regards, Terri and Bernard

There is a room on the ground floor but the dining area is down a narrow flight of stairs. The entrance is up quite a few steps. Hope this helps.

"The Luxury suite, has a balcony, great in the Summer."
