We really could not fault this B&B . Interior decoration is tasteful and stylish. The bedroom we stayed in had a quality feel about it and the bed was really comfortable. The sheets were very soft and the mattress was comfortable and not worn. The hotel has a high standard of cleanliness and nothing is too much trouble for the owner/s. We came to Torquay on Business and Terri was extremely helpful when it came to advising us about the local area and places of interest. Breakfast at The Ascot is of an exceptional standard- the sausages were of the better variety ( finest/butcher type) and we were also served a beautiful fruit platter on a heart plate dusted with icing sugar...immm. There is a feel of tranquility and peace around the house too. Maybe to do with the buddha statues. This has to be the best B&B we have ever visited. You will be hard pushed to beat this great value for money.
