7 Tor Church Road
Set in an impressive early Victorian villa, Ascot House is a family-run hotel which has recently been acquired by Bernard, a French expatriate. He is partnered by Janice, who is English. Ascot House Hotel, which is being fully refurbished into a small boutique hotel, has free, private, off-road parking and is most conveniently situated within a few minutes walking distance of Torquays Casino, Town Hall, Town Centre and shops, sea front, marina and the Riviera Conference Centre.
All rooms have en-suite facilities or private bathrooms, hospitality trays, wall-mounted LCD TVs, free WiFi and, reflecting Bernard and Janices respective nationalities, are furnished in either a French period style or with traditional Victorian furniture. Children are most welcome at Ascot House (generally at not extra cost) and a cot, childs bed and high chair are available on request. The Anglo-French theme has also been extended to our extensive breakfast menu which includes fresh fruit, continental baked goods and home made preserves - in addition to our cooked-to-order traditional English breakfast using quality local produce all served in our sunny, spacious dining room! We pride ourselves on ensuring a warm, welcoming atmosphere, comfortable accommodation, top class food and excellent value for money and we look forward to ensuring that your stay is a highly enjoyable one.
Writing in 1727, Daniel Defo said, “this is indeed a very special place”, which of course it is, even to this day. Equipped with 2 residents’ lounges, one with a television and the other for quiet relaxation, perhaps with a coffee or a drink, the hotel also contains a concert grand piano complete with parlour palm, though you might have to contend with a very serious soprano practising for the evening's opera performance. The Old Hall Hotel is the first choice for theatre goers.
It provides a well-known pre and post-theatre supper and special theatre-goers’ room tariffs, including theatre tickets. It is a natural setting for a wonderful evening at the opera followed by dinner and a comfortable night's sleep.
