Here’s a snapshot of what our guests say about us:

“First time at Ashmount but it won’t be the last. The staff were so friendly and after a 6 hour drive from Southampton it was so nice that the staff came to the car to assist with the luggage, a small but important detail and typical how well we were looked after. The rooms were amazing, the beds were so comfortable and the room spotless. We managed to get a room with a hot tub and spent an lovely time relaxing and chatting. Certainly will be returning thanks for a wonderful experience”. Graham, January 2018

“The cleaning staff were really friendly and certainly take a pride in their work – all the staff working in the hotel made us feel more than welcome & we will definitely be returning.” Claire, Jan 2018

“Well what can I say, the new owners have breathed new life into the hotel. The room we stayed in “The Retreat’ had been redecorated and it looked a whole lot better. The little touches are still there such as the biscuits in the room, sherry and the honesty bar. We were pleased to see the restaurant was reopened and the food was the best we have had there. Keep up the good work and we will be back!” Kirsty, January 2018

Wonderful New Year Celebration. Staying for the New Year celebration was our first visit to the Ashmount. What a superb job the owners have done in presenting this impressive hotel. The room was lovely, the celebrations in the lounge were great fun, and the breakfasts were to die for (particularly the scrambled egg with salmon). ” Steve, Jan 2018
“Wonderful NYE stay. We can only highly recommend this hotel. It is cosy, but feels like a little luxury. We had one of the rooms across the road, with a traditional bath overlooking the countryside. The bed was comfy and the sherry and cookies in the room a nice touch. We enjoyed a New Years eve gala dinner, starting with a champagne cocktail and finishing with more champagne in the bar. One of the best New Years eve’s I have had!” Martin, Dec 2017

“The canadian wife of the couple who now own the hotel was lovely very attentive, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The husband who was the chef is amazing our meal was the best we have had in along long time. We will definitely will be going back.” Pat T, Nov 2017

“The accommodation was excellent and the hot tub added to the experience. The complimentary sherry was a delight. The jewel in the crown however was the food. All we can say is unbelievable. Undoubtedly some of the best food we have ever eaten.” Martin E, Nov 2017

“We enjoyed afternoon tea and evening meals which were both prepared in house using fresh local ingredients and cooked to perfection, this really helped to make our stay a memorable one.” Steven L, Nov 2017

“You were treated as a member of family and there was no rushing to finish after a lovely quiet nights sleep I was reluctant to check out and leave my little utopia…” Shebablue, Nov 2017

“Lovely room, relaxing hot tub and sauna. Food and service was excellent. Thank you.” Andy and Kerry

“I had no idea where my ‘mini’ moon destination was to be and I have to say Ashmount was the most fabulous surprise. The staff are superb, our room was beyond all expectations and breakfast and the afternoon tea were sumptuous. We will have to come back to try the candle-lit dinner – hopefully for our first anniversary.” Janet and Roger Beaty

“Wonderful room, wonderful setting, perfect start to our marriage. Amazing picnic!” Sophie and James

“Came for 10 years anniversary, had an amazing time, very romantic, great food, great staff and the hot tub was great too! Will be back.” Mark and Michelle Andrew

“A great choice for a few days after getting married. Sanctuary Spa was wonderful and champagne, hampers and food. The staff are first rate and made the stay effortless.” Sally and Howard

“Came for our honeymoon and very glad we did! Very romantic and hot tub was a great addition! Secret Garden room was perfect and the food was to die for! We will be back for our anniversary.” Al and Kerri Bootland

“Everything perfect and a relaxing break. Beautiful garden.” Andy and Hazel Macrow

“We first stayed at the Ashmount in March and loved it so much we just had to return to sample a Hot Tub room! First time out we stayed in the Honey Pot which was exceptional, we really didn’t think it could get much better but as treat we decided to stay again but try the Secret Garden. Absolutely amazing. Breakfast is delicious and as every bit as hearty as described but what really makes this place besides its opulence is the service you receive. I defy anybody to find the slightest thing to complain about at Ashmount.” WR Saud
