We went to the hotel with the Sun Rise coach, the hotel was full with 3 lots of coach passengers. The restaraunt was heaving, but the waitresses fulfilled their tasks admirally, they served us with a smile and were prompt with the food and remembered exactly what we had ordered, considering that we all had something different it was very good. The meals were excellent, with plenty of choice on the menu,
Our rooms were clean and well furnished, they were cleaned each day, and towels were replaced when we indicated so. The entertainment was first class, bingo each night (the only time we play bingo) and the entertainers were super, particularly Chris Caplin, and the Stage Door Johnnies, 2 ladies who kept us laughing all night long.
Our whole week went far too quickly and we came home with lots of good memories.
The hotel is situated on a hill, but there is a quick way to the shops through the multi storey car park which is close by. A bus can be caught in the high street, we went to Brixham on it, yes, the hotel was filled with mainly over 50's but they were a great crowd and they made the holiday.

Room Tip: We used room 61 which was up one flight of stairs

I stayed at this hotel with a coach tour. It was extremely dated, drab and not too clean. The waiting staff couldn't wait for you to finish your meal before taking your plate from you. Tea and coffee at breakfast was stewed and cold. Staff very unprofessional.

We returned yesterday from a Leisuretime 1 night break for the Eden Project.

To be honest, I would've preferred to stay in Torquay for the day rather than the 2 hour bus trip to Eden.

The Ashley Court Hotel was brilliant. All members of staff were real friendly.

We walked down the hill into town for Saturday afternoon & spent a good few hours trying out the local inns - our favourite being The Cider Press. We are in our early forties, we really liked our daytime drinkies in Torquay, but we didn't fancy the night time what so ever., there seemed to be abit of an atmostphere with gangs of lads - not worth the hassle.

The walk took 10 - 15 minutes depending on your pace. Apparently you can divert using the lift in the multistorey carpark that is just around the corner from the hotel.

The evening meal was fabulous, even considering there were 3 coach loads (about 150 guests) staying. We had a bottle of Rose with our meal, and it only cost £10.49
The bar prices were great too.
We stayed for the evening entertainment ( something we never do) & the singer was really good (sorry but I think it was Sarah). She sang a wide range of songs, there was something for everyone.

We had room 36 - good sized room. 2 single beds & 1 double. A view over the pool. Tea & coffee supplied. Hairdryer supplied. Use of iron available. Nice sized shower cubicle. Very clean.

Breakfast was very well catered for, with a wide choice.

The waitresses did an amazing job.

Would we return? To The Ashley Court, definately, but not to The Eden Project

The only problem that we found with this hotel ,was that the owner was very rude.
I suggest that she aquires some skills on how to deal with the public.
We will not be staying at this, are any other hotel that she is associated with.

Just returned from a David Urquhart coach tour staying at this hotel. The restaurant staff were very friendly and worked really hard.The food was excellent and varied, and always fresh. The hotel itself could do with a makeover but the friendliness of all the staff more than made up for it. The swimming pool, although small, was lovely with fresh towels provided. The entertainment, particularly Chris on the first night, was well worth staying in for and bingo was held before the entertainment. Prices in the bar very very reasonable. It was about a fifteen minute walk into the town centre, all downhill. Took longer coming back as it was uphill. All in all a good value for money holiday.

Room Tip: rooms 20 or 25 if you have mobility problems.
