Reviewed 16 June 2013

Excellent hotel, absolutely amazing friendly owners very welcoming and attentative. Nothing was too much trouble, assisted and catered for your every need, taking the time to talk to us and our children. Outstanding room, outstandingly clean, and outstanding food. Hotel was beautiful top to bottom. So handy to have fresh milk in your room especially for little ones bottles. Beds were comfortable unlike in some hotels. This hotel is beyond expectations, very highly recommended looking forward to another visit in the future. Very happy visitors

Very lovely stay - we're definitely coming back here had recommending to the place to our friends! The interiors give the place a very homely, quaint and lovely atmosphere which is consistent everywhere - from the very entrance to the kitchen, from the atrium to the rooms and suites. You won't be disappointed!

We stayed three nights in the Top Suite and absolutely loved it. The view was amazing and the room was gorgeous - clean, nicely decorated and a great size. The breakfasts were very good, with the plate of fresh fruit being a really nice touch. Now we just need an excuse to go back for another stay!

Trying to find a decent place to stay in Torquay can be a nightmare, why is is it that most places here are stuck in some sort of 1970/80's timewarp? I have stayed in a few over the years and most are dire. Time to move into the 21st Century Torquay!

Well, good news, this is not the case at the Ascot House Hotel. Terri and Bernard have done a fantastic job at renovating an old hotel into a wonderful place to stay.

We only visited for the one night (yes, a hotel in Torquay that allows you to stay for only one night, whatever next!) to see my friends band (The Simmertones) play here in Torquay, but would have been more than happy to stay here for a week.

We were greeted by the most personable Terri who took us to our lovely room (no.6). Decorated to a high standard, mixing old and new and all the extras you need for a comfortable stay including fresh milk in a fridge. No more UHT nastiness! The bed was superbly comfortable and a massive king size so we both had a great night's sleep. The room and ensuite were spotlessly clean, so a massive plus point here.

The Ascot House is positioned at the top end of town (so don't expect a fabulous seaview), but very handy for access to the shops, and equally only a ten minute walk down to the seafront. Perfect.

Restaurant tips:
Green Leaf Cafe, just off the main Union Street is modern and bright and great for a light lunch.
No. 7, a great fish restaurant down by the harbour, wonderful fresh fish and seafood, though just a tad overpriced.

Breakfast, was fabulous, pretty much anything you wanted was there, and not forgetting the cooked breakfast wonderfully prepared by Bernard.

It seems that both Terri and Bernard work very hard and have an attention to detail that just makes your stay that much better than any of the larger faceless 4 or 5 star hotels. Oh, and at a fraction of the price. I think the Ascot House is actually underpriced for the quality of service they provide, but don't tell them that or they might put the price up!

If we are in Torquay again you can be sure we will booking into the Ascot House!

Room Tip: Room 6 has lovely big bed

Me and my fiancé stayed here at the end of May. We stayed in the small room at the top (room 10). This room was lovely and cosey even though the bathroom was just down a couple of steps this didnt bother us, it was all lovely and clean. Teri greeted us when we arrived and was so kind and helpful. The breakfast was great! The fruit to go with the breakfast was a lovely little touch. All in all it's a great hotel, highly recommended! We will defo stay again! :)

We got more that we were expecting when staying at the Ascot House Hotel. It was amazing value for money. They were very accommodating about us bringing a dog (we decided not to in the end). The owner was super helpful and breakfast was amazing. Wow. We would stay again.

We stayed at the Ascot House Hotel for 2 nights, and will deffinately return in the near future. We were greeted by Terri who was an excellent host. The room was lovely and so tastefully decorated, comfy bed and clean. The breakfast was excellent and great service, care and attention are given at all times. Thank you Terri and co for a lovely stay.
