“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We spent one night at Ascot House Hotel in June as were visiting the area to attend a wedding in Babbacombe. I can not recommend the hotel enough. The suite was perfect, the bathroom was beautiful and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. We had a fridge with fresh milk and chilled water which was a lovely touch. The breakfast was truly out of this world. Bernard was the most accommodating, friendly host you could ask for. Our only regret was that we couldn't spend another night. Thank you Ascot House Hotel, we will definitely return.

Room Tip: The luxury suite has a lovely large balcony.

Having carefully read reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to pick this hotel for our short break. The reviews were spot.... Well keeping it short and sweet. The hospitality was second to none. We stayed in the Gothic Suite which has plenty of room. The room was spotless as well the hotel. Terri made us feel very welcome and couldn't really ask for more. Very helpful in suggesting places to go. The breakfast was a winner every morning with plenty of variety. I would definitely recommend staying at the Ascot hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return back...

We have just returned from 4 nights in the Luxury Suite. It was spacious and immaculately clean. The furniture was all of extremely high quality and we benefitted from having a lovely balcony to sit on outside. Terri was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The Breakfast was excellent with multiple choices of hot and cold food all beautifully presented and cooked. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We had an excellent stay at the Ascot House Hotel. We rented the Seaview suite which was lovely and spacious. Terri & Bernard were excellent hosts, the breakfast was superb and we felt very well looked after. Only tiny niggle is the parking is very tight; however we still managed to park our S-Max next to some other pretty big cars (a Range Rover for one). Terri is also excellent at guiding you in and out.

Our family consists of a 2.5 year old, a 6 year old and my wife and me. We will be returning!

Room Tip: Nice view from the Seaview :-)

Thank you Gary; it's great to hear you all enjoyed your time down here as well our breakfast and the lovely view from our Sea View Suite. That one is, indeed, a very popular room - for the view especially but also for the amount of space it offers. Yes, the car park can be tight, but as you mentioned, we do our best to work as well as we can with what we've got. As there's a space for each Suite plus free street parking less than a minute around the corner from us, guests have a couple of choices on that front. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to the area and don't forget to remind us that you've been before as we offer a discount to returning guests.
Many thanks for the review!

Just got back from 5 nights in this hotel , it was a great stay .
On arrival we were greeted by teri and given the news we were upgraded to a deluxe suite which is an excellent room . The bed in there is huge and extremely comfortable . The rooms and hotel are spotlessly clean . The breakfast was delicious every day and wide ranging . The owners teri and bernard were very pleasant and extremely helpful , the location for us is perfect and we will without a doubt be returning .
p.s. Teri the cake you gave us was absolutely delicious .

We have stayed overnight in The Ascot House Hotel and had an amazing time. Terri & Bernard were lovely hosts ensuring our every need was met. The breakfast was wonderful and the gothic suite we stayed in was perfect. Our only regret is that we weren't staying longer!

The suite we stayed in at Ascot House Hotel was perfect in every respect. Extremely spacious and with a very high quality of furniture and furnishings, the room was very comfortable and homely. The proprietors made us feel very welcome and were extremely helpful. Could not recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: not sure what the other rooms were like but the luxury suite lived up to its name

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the Luxury Suite to live up to its name! We've put a lot of consideration into the spaces we've had to work with - how to use them to their full potential and then categorise them by name and price accordingly. We hope you'll visit us again on any future visit to Torbay - and maybe try our Sea View Suite (definitely on par with the Luxury!)
