we stayed at the Ascot 20th to 27th september. We travelled half board with first choice. The food is ok, but a bit to much of the same thing, but not bad. Breakfast was not enough choice for me, being mainly continental. If you want a cooked breakfast it is extra.
There are metal shutters on the windows of the rooms, if you do not have the shutters down and the windows shut, the noise of the main road is very loud, if you do have the shutters down, it is very claustraphobic and hot. The rooms were clean, and a maid every day.
The town is nice, but if you're staying a week, be prepared it can get boring, cos unless you can afford excusions everyday, or if you just want restaurants day and night, or shopping, there not much else to do. once you have been around the shops once, you have been around them all week.
We booked 3 excusions with the first choice rep, and the first one they went without us, as they tend to arrive earlier than they say, and outside of the hotel is chaos as there are other coaches and lots of people. Also, the trips start early, around 8.oclock, but as i said, they come earlier than they say and they dont wait, or check for you. We had to argue to get the trip on another day, but the rep did eventualy arrange it after a threat of complaining and a bad review on trip advisor.
A trip to Capri was also chaotic, a lovely place, but not much organisation when you get to the island. There were 3 cruise liner tours and a lot of students, and they line you up to get on the train that takes you up the mountain to the village, They only let on 80 a time, but it is like rush hour on a monday morning. And then a bartering system with your guide and a mini bus organiser to take tou up further to Ana Capri. An optional excusion by boat around the isle turned out to be a white knuckle ride, so if you're seasick, dont do it!
But if you go, try out some of the resturants rather than just your otel for food, as there are some lovely ones.
I think this is a place ok for 3 nights, but not a week.
We booked 3 excusions, wed, fri and sunday
