Set in an early Victorian villa (built in 1840), Ascot House Hotel is a ‘boutique’ hotel in the sense that all rooms have much individuality and are furnished with period furniture of either English or French origin. As a result, you will find a mixture of antique pine (for instance in our luxury suite), mahogany, fruit wood (for instance in our ‘Gothic suite’) or even ‘shabby chic’ painted and distressed furniture (for instance in our 'Sea View suite' with views over the whole of the bay).
Ascot House Hotel has just undergone a second refurbishment resulting in 5 spacious Suites that are more reflective of the original design and glory of the house. Our 2 two room suites are comprised of a lounge and bedroom with built-in en-suite facilities while the three room suites have a large bathroom in addition to the bedroom and lounge. Apart from the Junior suite, each bathroom has a bath and a shower, with the Luxury and Deluxe suites enjoying free standing claw feet traditional baths as well as separte showers. Each suite also has their own fridge with fresh milk and a bottle of filtered water as well as hospitality trays. All rooms have LCD/LED wall-mounted TVs (32 or 40" in the lounges) as well as free wifi access. Moreover, they benefit from many ‘personal touches’ like toiletries, tissues, wine glasses/tumblers and being serviced daily.
Or spacious Suites offer outstanding value for money with the Luxury and Gothic Suites having the added bonus of access to the original full length period balcony which includes tables and chairs for you to enjoy the sun… and/or a cigarette since we are happy for you to smoke there.
The Anglo-French theme has also been extended to our extensive breakfast menu which includes individual plates of fresh fruit, quality French preserves (St Dalfour) and croissants/brioches, in addition to our cooked-to-order traditional English breakfast using top quality produce. We use free range eggs, pure pork sausages, best bacon and mushrooms as well as baked vine tomatoes sprinkled with olive oil. Alternatively, we offer smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, which is proving to be a popular choice.
