Reviewed 16 May 2013

I recently spent a weekend at the Ascot. This was not my first visit and is unlikely to be my last. Staff were courteous and pleasant, food was very good. I stayed in the Guineas room. A very comfortable bed and well equiped room. Wi Fi enabled me to send a load of pictures from Manx Rally all sorted by 10pm. I have stayed in many other hotels in Douglas over the years but not since I found the Ascot. I would thoroughly recomend the Ascot Hotel to anyone wanting a quality hotel,

Room Tip: Just try the Ascot Hotel. You won't be disapointed.

I was walking past and thought that I would look at their bar menu and have a pint whilst doing so.
Lots of people were eating and I was not surprised as the price was good and the portions enormous.
I had a pint of the local bitter at £2.80 and went on to order 'bangers and mash'. Three huge traditional pork and leek sausages, real mashed potato and a selection of fresh vegetables. All smothered in the best onion gravy I have ever had. It was a feast fit for a king.
The staff, and particularly the bar manager John were friendly and the service was first class.
I will certainly go there again.

Great friendly family run business with helpful staff. Bar meals or restaurant available, food is excellent. When away from home on business this is a great hotel where it easy to meet similar people.
Two minutes from the prom and ideally placed to drive to all parts of the island.

Room Tip: For a few pounds more ask for a sea view.

Some of the rooms are named after race courses or horses. I was in Newbury with a view past neighbouring buildings to the sea. Plenty of clothes storage space, both drawers and wardrobe with lots of hangers. Large comfortable bed and good-sized bathroom with the aforementioned spa bath - bliss at the end of a cold, sighseeing day. There was a desk/dressingtable with a well-lit mirror, ideal for applying makeup. The lighting in the bathroom was also good but the bedroom lighting was abysmal - dreadful spotlights and bedside lights with such dark shades that no light escaped. The wi-fi (free) worked well in the bedroom.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts good. I cannot really comment on the dinner menu as I was with a group and we had a separate menu.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front

I would like to say that we were treated very well at the Ascot Hotel on a recent stay - our room was excellent if not a little too hot, and the breakfast very good. All the staff made us most welcome and nothing appeared to be any trouble.

Like a lot of the older hotels in the Isle of Man, the decor in this hotel is slightly dated but don't let that put you off .We had a triple room that was exceptionally big with flat screen tv, trouser press, tea/coffee making facilities and jacuzzi bath ! Breakfast is good and you can either choose from the hot buffet or have it cooked to your liking. There are also cereals, juices, yogurts etc to choose from. For those that don't want to venture too far, there are evening meal options for hotel guests and a small and friendly hotel bar. The Ascot also has a lift, which a lot of the older hotels don't.

Location is one block back from Central Prom ,so if your driving it's a bit easier to get parking (street parking) near the hotel once you don't mind a lot of hills. If your on foot it's about 20mins walk from the ferry terminal.

Room Tip: If your a light sleeper get a room at the back of the hotel as the front rooms take in the noise of...
