We stayed at the Ascot House Hotel for 2 nights and were very impressed, especially for the money. We originally booked a standard room which we assumed was en suite. Owners Terri and Bernard quickly confirmed our booking and advised that it wasn't en suite although it did have a private bathroom. As I am pregnant we advised this didn't suit us so they moved us to the Family Suite for only £10 a night extra.
The car park is tight so be careful when you park but Terri would helpfully come out to make sure we had no issues getting out.
Our room was super. It was a great size, beautifully decorated with everything we needed: kettle, fresh milk, huge bathroom, TV with DVD, free WiFi. Plus stunning sea views (and even binoculars to use!).
The hotel is less than 5 mins walk to the High Street where you will find usual High St shops. Or it's about 10 mins walk to the harbour front and lots of restaurants to choose from.
Breakfast was amazing too! When you go down to the dining room you are given a lovely heart shaped plate with a selection of fresh fruits prepared for you, all served beautifully with a dusting of icing sugar! You can then choose from a variety of cooked breakfasts (including veggie), cereals, toast, croissants, brioche etc.)
Terri was on her own when we were there but she was never flustered and always had a smile or tips on where to go or places to eat.
If you are in the area, we can't recommend this little gem enough.
