Ashmore House
Ranked #10 of 12 Fresnaye B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 February 2010

What an absolute dreary dive this self catering apartment proved to be. They claimed to be luxury, luxury is was NOT.
It was barely cleaned with a disgusitng smell of fish from the fridge.
Bathroom and towels were adequate but limited.
Basic essentials such as chairs and couch were primitive and broken. The tabe was totally warped. We were promised secure parking, but there was NONE. In fact, a number of guests had their cars damaged through vandalism.
Recomd to AVOID at all costs, PLEASE

Previously call "Villa Quendon" but probably renamed Ashmore House to manipulate its alphabetical position on web searches.

Be warned it looks nothing like the website - decor is not the same as in the photos. Scatter cushions, carpets, flowers, candles all added for the photo shoot. Not "luxury" apartments by any measure - rooms are tiny, decor horrible and service not great. Note that they have no third party star rating or similar (probably for good reason) - "luxury" is their own, in my opinion misleading, description.

We were kept waiting for an hour to check in at a pre-arranged time. We had to complain to get a broken toilet seat fixed in the bathroom - and the king sized bed was two different height single beds made up together!

Don't stay there unless there is nothing else available.
