“Friendly spotless hotel”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

Just spent 5 great nights here. Decor is old fashioned but everything is spotless .
Room was great and bed was very comfy .
In a good location just a short walk to the seafront and town.
The owners Norman and Nena are a lovely couple who make you feel welcome and there if you need advice .
In short just great.

I have stayed at Ashurst Lodge four times now this year (2012) while visiting poorly family in hospital. I have stayed in a double room no. 5 (?), in a single room no. 2 (?) and in a family room no. 8 depending on what was available. I was only charged the single rate each time.

All the rooms I stayed in were very comfortable and very clean. Norman and Nena Hutchinson who run the place could not have been more helpful and friendly.

The cooked breakfast was very very acceptable and filling; you get cereals, yoghurt, fruit juice, toast, tea or coffee (you can have both if you ask politely) and a full cooked English breakfast or you can choose to have just what you want from the cooked items. Local prices for a similar breakfast come in at about £8.00 plus in a cafe so the room prices are very very good including breakfast (even with out breakfast). If you are vegetarian have a word with Norman or Nena and they will sort something out for you for breakfast.

When I go down again I will definitely stay at the Ashurst Lodge.

Me & 11 friends spent 2 nights in Ashurst Lodge, I cannot say enough good things about it, exceptional price, greeted very nicely, very comfy beds and breakfast included as well, I couldn't have asked anymore to make my stay in Torquay any better.

We stayed for one night to explore Torquay whilst en route to Cornwall. Very happy with the price which drew us in and the hotel was very good. Very big room with comfortable bed, TV, tea/coffee making facilities. We went for the en suit room and the shower etc was equally just as good. Breakfast was fantastic. Lots of options available plus a full cooked breakfast. Location was good at a 5 min walk to the main town and maybe 10mins further on to the marina etc but not far basically. There are a couple of options but worth noting is that both involve a hill which could be tough for the less able. The owner was also a nice guy who made us feel very welcome, gave us some good tips on a place to eat and cooked a very nice breakfast.

Couple that run the place couldn't be nicer, rooms couldn't be cleaner and the bed was amazing to sleep in. The location is great, 5 mins walk to shops and harbour and Torquay is a nice place. However, the interior has seen better days, looking like something from the 1930s. The lounge is a big room full of old armchairs with one of the walls covered in old books. It does smell a bit musty but is totally clean throughout. Our room had an old box tv above the door, you would have to squint to see anything on it. Finally breakfast is served quite early (early for us) for one hour and was quite nice. Overall would recommend to older couples but is just too old fashioned for us I'm afraid.

stayed in the ground floor single room,small clean and comfortable and good value if i got a breakfast with that,but when you serve breakfast for only one hour 8:30-9:30 there's a good chance your gonna miss it,i find this totally unacceptable ,your on holiday you shouldn't have to set your alarm clock or worry u won't get up in time,i also found this room a bit noisy as i could hear the door bell and the opening and closing of doors and i didn't close the window fully my fault and had the noise from the street.so i'm afraid it's a negative review which would most likely would have been positive if i had breakfast and thus experienced the hospitality that other reviews have commended.

Having booked a week's summer holiday in Torquay with our two older children, we were very happy to find a place that offers single rooms at a good rate. When we checked in, the landlord, Norman, confessed to us that they were actually double rooms that were charged as single...

This is a wonderful B&B. Norman and Nena made us feel at home during our stay in Torquay. The full English breakfast was always delicious with Norman and Nena taking good care that we got enough to eat, and always helping out with any questions we had. They'll even pick you up from the station or take you to it if needed.

The B&B is located close to the shopping area and close to the sea, the location is just perfect. It was very nice to have a parking place for our rental car, so we didn't have to worry about that. There's free wireless internet, cable TV and insuite bathrooms in every room.
The place is very clean, the bathrooms are professionally installed and work perfectly. It's a shame we had to leave after a week...
