Ashwood Grange Hotel
Ranked #41 of 85 Hotels in Torquay
Reviewed 21 August 2011

I recently stayed here with my husband and 7 year old daughter. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was superb. The owners Clare and Stuart were very welcoming and nothing was to much trouble.

It is about a 15 minute downhill walk to the beach, where you can walk along the seafront towards Torquay harbour, which is very pleasant.

Only one tip i have, is if you are a car driver make sure you have plenty of change for the carparks as everything is pay and display!

I stayed here for five nights recently and had a truly great time . This is a family run hotel and Clare and Stuart made me feel really welcome. The room I stayed in was excellent , nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast superb-nothing was too much trouble and Clare made a great effort to ensure everyone was happy. The no12 bus stops right outside the hotel ,takes only 5mins to get down to the town centre and runs every 12 mins until almost midnight. The seafront is only 15mins walk and the Bull and Bush only 5mins provides excellent food and a lively friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend this hotel as friendly, relaxing and exceptional value for money

My wife and I stayed at the Ashwood Grange Hotel for 2 nights (07/08/09 – 09/08/09). The Hotel is located approximately 20 minutes walk from the Town centre and Quay. It’s worth bearing in mind that the hotel (like many others in Torquay) is situated on a hill and anyone with walking difficulties may struggle with the incline.

The hotel itself is very clean and has a nice homely feel to it. Clare and Stuart are extremely friendly and genuine people who ensured we were well looked after. Our room faced the garden to the rear of the building and had an exceptional view (Room 10). The bed was comfortable and the en-suite was well maintained and modern.

The breakfasts were very good in terms of quality and choice and Clare simply can’t do enough to ensure you have the perfect start to the day. There is a large selection of tourist information available in the lobby and both Clare and Stuart are more than helpful in assisting you with top tips with regards planning out your vacation.

There is a children’s play area to the rear that is secure and a small balcony which is an ideal sun trap. My only gripe is the lack of a licensed bar, but with several pubs located nearby it wasn’t a major issue.

I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again in the future.

Had a short break at this typical Torbay B & B.

Advantages:

• Keen prices
• Friendly and helpful owners
• Located 10 yards from bus stop with very frequent services and 250 yards from Torre railway station.
• Own car park (but on a steep slope – see photo – may be a challenge for a few drivers)
• Substantial breakfast
• Clean – well looked after
• Free Wi-fi

Disadvantages;

• On main road – may be noisy for some at night
• 20 minutes walk from centre of Torquay and beach
• Lack of space in my particular room (see picture). My room also had separate shower and WC - across the corridor. Think this is the only room without ensuite
• Lounge seemed to have faulty lights – difficult to use at night


Conclusion

I’d happily return – but this may not be top of some peoples list.

Stayed 7 nights at the Ashwood Grange Hotel in Torquay. My experience was wonderful. Our hosts, Stuart and (especially) Clare were warm, friendly, and made us feel right at home. The hotel is lovely with a wonderful view of the beautiful city of Torquay. Stayed in the Family Suite, which consists of one room with two twin beds and a sink, and one room with a double bed and attached bathroom. The location is convenient and easy to find. The full English breakfast is delicious and filling. I can't give this place enough praise - I really enjoyed myself.
