Reviewed 19 August 2012

teri and bernard where the most welcoming hosts at any hotel we have ever stayed at, the hotel is full of character it was very clean, our room was superb, and the breakfast was top class. the little touches like the fruit on a heart shaped plate was superb, I would recommend this hotel to any one. we moved on to a guest house in Weymouth I only wish we would have made it a 3 night stay at the ascot rather than a 2, we most definitely will return for another stay.........
TOP CLASS HOTEL TOP CLASS HOSTS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR MAKING OUR STAY ONE TO REMEMBER, WILL SEE YOU AGAIN....GRAHAM & MARIE....

Our 2 week stay at Ascot House could have gone on forever !Our room was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean,as was the whole hotel.Plenty of choice for breakfast which was totally yummy.Terri and Bernard where the perfect friendly, warm and welcoming hosts always there to give advise about local attractions.As Arnie nearly said" We`ll be back" ! Try it for yourself,you will not be disappointed!

After two weeks, it felt a bit strange when offering the new guests 'your room'! We hope you were able to get home with no hiccups and we very much look forward to seeing you next time you're down!

This is a review of Ascot House hotel but we have never actually been there. We were booked to stay in the top floor suite this week with our 6 year old daughter. Unfortunately my mum was ill in hospital and we couldn't go. Bernard and Terri could not have been kinder or more sympathetic to our situation despite the fact that it must have inconvenienced them. Our deposit was moved to a later date and they sent us a lovely email. Sadly my mum passed away yesterday but Bernard and Terri's kindness and flexibility meant that we could enjoy her last few days without stressing over a holiday booking. On this basis, we can only say that their customer care is excellent and undoubtedly an indication of how they run their hotel. Thank you both- we look forward to visiting soon.

How thoughtful of you 'BigBear' to take the time and effort to post a review at such a time. We are so sorry to hear about your loss, however, very happy that such a simple gesture from us enabled you to better focus on a much more significant matter. Our thoughts are with you and we very much look forward to welcoming you later in the year.

Stayed at Ascot House for 6 nights. Terri & Bernard were the perfect hosts - couldn't have been more helpful. Our room, the top suite, was clean, comfortable and spacious and like the rest of the hotel was decorated beautifully.

As mentioned by others the breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay again, or recommend the hotel to friends.

Room Tip: Sea View from top-suite and large en-suite bathroom.

Ascot house is really lovely. Spacious beautifully decorated rooms!Very individual not like your run of mill hotels. Breakfast lovely nothing too much trouble. Hope to visit again some time. It takes about 13 minutes to walk into town so you will need to be fairly mobile.

Room Tip: all rooms very nice!

We stayed at the hotel for two days and it was simply amazing. Very welcoming, they made us feel at home. Our room was perfectly decorated, the bed was really comfortable and we had a big balcony with great views. The Full- English breakfast was one of the best we've ever tried. Amazing experience. We'll definitely come back.

I stayed in this hotel at the weekend just gone. After looking around for a hotel I picked this one as it looked really nice in the photos and was a good price.

I wasn't disappointed. The room was lovely and just what we needed. It was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. The beds were really comfortable and breakfast was probably the best I have ever had in a hotel. It was nice to stay somewhere that wasn't all standard and where every room looked the same like a Travel Lodge.

The owners were both very welcoming and friendly and the whole experience was a delight, I would stay again without hesitation. I don't think you will find a nicer hotel in Torquay.
