Best Ascot Hotels

Ascot Hotels

Set in the wooded plains of Berkshire, Ascot is a small and affluent village that boasts quaint streets of thatched cottages, stylish gastro-pubs and magical churches. Ascot is well-known for its vast green racecourse, which hosts the most fashionable racing event on England’s social calendar. The village welcomes you with a warm local charm, and the paradisal rural atmosphere is perfectly matched to the elegant culture of country hikes, farmers markets and fine dining.

Things to see

Begin your Ascot morning by visiting its many religious buildings. Amble along the tranquil streets to the All Saints Church, a large redbrick structure built in a gorgeous gothic-revival style, where the richly decorated interior of arching intricately painted columns, golden statuettes and rose-shaped windows will blow you away. After, stroll along to the wide cobbled High Street, where shoppers will have a chance to splurge at the sprawling selection of brand and designer stores, whose shopfronts are capped by pink and purple hanging baskets. As the afternoon rolls on, treat yourself with a trip to Ascot Racecourse. The atmospheric halls and red-velveted bar lounges - looking out over the grassy green track - brim with Ascot’s centuries-old heritage, where black and white photographs commemorate legendary jockeys and the many royals and monarchs that have come to watch the graceful horses dash across the track.

Hotels in Ascot

Stay in one of the enormous 5-star central hotels, and enjoy rooms fit for royalty, idyllic green grounds speckled by Victorian-era fountains, and infinitely attentive butler-like service. Centrally located 4-star guesthouses - set in white-washed stone buildings - offer en-suite rooms with high ceilings, four poster beds and sleek plasma-screen televisions, creating a beautiful blend of traditional design and modern comfort. For an inexpensive holiday, stay at one of the pleasantly affordable 3-star Ascot hotels, which rest slightly outside of the centre, offering comfy rooms and in-house dining.

Where to stay

Staying in central Ascot puts you in the heart of its old-world rural atmosphere, where small woods lead onto cobbled streets and tree boughs bend over thatched cottage roofs. Stay just south of the centre, in Sunninghill, to discover curious antique stores, family-run cafés, welcoming fire-lit taverns and a wealth of fine dining restaurants, which serve everything from haute cuisine to locally-sourced traditional English dishes. For a holiday immersed in Berkshire’s eden-like natural surroundings, stay north of Ascot, toward the South Forest, where deer spring through fields and birds sing from towering trees.

How to get to Ascot

Ascot is well served by a centrally located railway station that benefits from mainline and local services. Trains to either London Waterloo or Reading run every half an hour, with London being a mere 20 minute ride away. Ascot is easily reached by car, and while being surrounded by nearby motorways, the town is completely untarnished by the sound of busy roads. Either take the A30 off the M25, or the A322 off the M3. Once in Ascot, the town is best explored by foot, but the local train line will take you to the surrounding villages and towns.
