Great stay at Ashbys
Steve was a fantastic host & the rooms were extremely comfortable and full of everything you could possibly need for a night or two away. The property is in a great location for walks on the promenade or exploring the great cafes & restaurants in the area. The Farm Kitchen was a brilliant recommendation for breakfast.

Overall happy
The hotel is of a good standard. My bed was uncomfortable as it was a sofa bed but the king size one in the room was great. The host was very obliging and changed it immediately. Loads of parking nearby and not too expensive in the car park at rear of property. Overall happy and would stay again 👍

Great place to stay!
We really enjoyed our stay at Ashby’s. I booked on the strength of the reviews and it didn’t disappoint. We loved the communal areas -our kids had the best fun playing air hockey and table football. The kitchen attached to our room was really handy. Great location and lovely and clean.
