Been going to Torquay since the 1950s so we know the resort very well, but this was our first stay at the Ashwood Grange. Our room was spotless and very comfortable, and breakfast was pretty much whatever you wanted, and perfectly prepared and presented. Stuart and Clare are wonderful hosts who work very hard for their guests and have three children of their own, so families are very welcome.

They simply can't do enough for you, from sorting out car parking to advising about buses and facilities, nothing is too much trouble. They deserve to be successful.

Back home now after a lovely four night stay at the Ashwood Grange - we booked through Bookings.com and chose here after looking at the other very favourable reviews on Tripadvisor. Clare and Stuart are indeed the perfect mine hosts and very organised - we rolled up early on Monday afternoon thinking we would be too early to check in; however we were met by Stuart who straight away gave us a warm welcome and offered to take our bags in and said it was no trouble at all that we were early. Breakfast (as several other folks have already said on here) was all freshly prepared and nothing was any trouble.

There is plenty of local information booklets & guides available in the lobby but Clare & Stuart themselves are a mine of information - saved a trip to the tourist office from the outset! The bus stops outside the hotel were extremely useful and as we had our 1-year old daughter with us it was a huge plus in that you could take your pushchair on board. The 'Hop 12' service runs every 10 mins down into Torquay town centre and then back up towards Newton Abbot with the same frequency and this service continues until quite late at night (although they run every 20 mins then). That said, the seafront and Riviera Centre are only about a 15 min walk away anyway.

On a more personal note, our daughter celebrated her 1st birthday this week, and when we went for breakfast that particular morning there was a birthday card on the table from Clare & Stuart - that was a lovely gesture and definitely not one you would get in any chain hotel!

Would certainly recommend to anyone although (due to the geography of Torquay!) you may find it easier to park and load/unload your car across the road from the hotel as the car park is on a fairly steep slope.

Room tip: We had Room 10 which was roomy enough to accommodate a large cot (provided free of charge) and still didn't feel cramped. Plenty of wardrobe space too.

Clare and Stuart are the perfect hosts - nothing seemed to be too much trouble - definitely not modeled on Fawlty towers ! Rooms are impeccably clean & beds comfortable - it was more like a hotel room than a B&B. Breakfast is comprehensive efficient and a great start to your day. A bus stop is just a few houses away and shops are just a short walk.

Room tip: Our room through bookings.com was perfect - no complaints, cant compare other rooms. Guest lounge was large comfortable & welcoming.

This really is a home from home! Stuart and Clare make you really welcome and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The place is spotlessly clean and the rooms beautifully decorated and comfortable.The breakfasts are well cooked and plentiful. I shall be going to Torquay again so I can stay there!
