The Ascott

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A medium sized Guesthouse tastefully decorated in a style reminiscent of a bygone era of genteel cultural munificence. The building & rooms are equipped with all mod cons and are completely comfortable albeit variable in dimensions, natural light & situation (front, side & rear facing). This was a mayoral residence & the building retains its old school charm but some may find parts of it tight: by American standards it would be considered cramped. The standard full breakfast is more than adequate & cooked with due care & diligence. Service is very pleasant & even when busy, most efficient. Second updated review I am editing my review after my second visit in July 2017 and have removed my earlier 4 star rating. David is an excellent and kindly host and this establishment is by far one of the most superb establishments I've had the pleasure to stay in that is not a five star hotel. Firstly, it is discerningly furnished and tastefully decorated in a style reminiscent of a bygone era of genteel cultural munificence. The building & rooms while equipped with all necessary mod cons are completely comfortable albeit variable in dimensions, natural light & situation (front, side & rear facing). This was originally a mayoral residence & the building retains its old school charm. Public areas are unfortunately limited in that it's the lounge where one eats breakfast - but again the furniture and fittings are of very high standard. Secondly, the standard full breakfast provided is more than pleasantly adequate & cooked with due care & diligence by the very good and attentive staff. Service is always kind and considerate even when busy, which is often. Thirdly, where nowadays would you find in your small meagre bedroom tea/coffee tray one that provides Horlicks along with hot chocolate and a range of good teas' and coffees'? Yet another instance of generosity of spirit and a quiet attention to detail. Fourthly, the prices for such a deliberately well thought out Guesthouse are ridiculously low - especially when compared to what's available in a two to three mile radius of this location in Ascott's price range. Fifthly, and this is really a personal preference, it's just the perfect right size. Any bigger and it would lose it's very specific charm.

We travel down every year to visit family and chose the Ascott as it was close by. A lovely warm welcome by the gentleman when we arrived and he even helped us to bring in some of our luggage. We were very well accommodated as we had informed when booking that we would have a new born with us. A beautiful room on the ground floor (room23 I believe) perfectly heated and close to the 24hr access door so no trouble getting in and out with the pram. Your not being rushed out the door and there was no noise whatsoever. Breakfast was fantastic just what we needed and those serving it were so welcoming. Hopefully we will be back again November this year and future years to come.

I needed a very short overnighter. I seem to have chosen the busiest weekend of the year (Man Utd at home, Robbie Williams concert, Manchester tribute concert). Fortunately booked a couple of months in advance. Lovely single room. Bijou but perfect for what I needed; comfortable bed, good shower, TV, tea making facilities. Also managed to park van at front of hotel. Small amount of space available but as last in/first out not an issue. Friendly greeting on arrival. Just what was needed. Thanks.

Helpful staff. Room very hot when we came back from dinner but receptionist opened hard to reach window but had to climb up on a chair which I would not have done. She should have had a set of steps. Had we known we would have turned off the radiators when we went out. Bed comfy. Free WiFi. Excellent breakfast. Good parkng at the back. We would stay again if in that area. Some parts a little dated but this added to the charm of the place.

We where stoping off at trafford centre hotel is easy to find staff really helpfull room was nice bed very comfy free parking free internet breakfast is cooked fresh too order not buffet style which is great too if im honest you could pay a lot more for this hotel very nice very nice indeed

Stayed here for 2 weeks, Mon to Fri, on business, and this place is ideal. So much better than the other, more expensive place I stayed not far from here! Traditional rooms all well designed with everything you'd expect on hand. Friendly, professional, helpful staff, and wonderful cooked breakfast! Also plenty of secure parking spaces front and back. Maybe an option of an evening meal would be perfect but overall a great B&B.

Stayed here to attend event city was only £6 there in a taxi. Was met by a friendly man and shown to room he was very helpful and told us about a strip of bars and restaurants just down the road which we went to after the event only a few mins walk back to the hotel and a decent place for drinks and food . Our room was the budget but it was more then adequate for our needs, clean and comfy with tea/coffee facilities.the rest of the hotel looked nice, parking was tight.the only little problem was the door frame had gaps all way round and it let all the light in from the landing I had to put pillows on the floor trying to cover gaps as it was keeping me awake as did the early morning traffic. Would recomend.

Myself and my cousin stayed here on a Saturday night while exhibiting at a 2 day event at Event City in Manchester. We arrived and were greeted by Lee who took us to our room and showed us around, also advising us on the local area and things to do nearby. We were tired after a long day and after some deliberating decided we just fancied a chilled out night, so we asked Lee if it would be okay for us to order some food and eat it at the hotel, he not only set a table for us in their kitchen/diner; he advised us where the local shop was so we could get some beers to have with our meal. Once our food arrived we tucked in and had a good chat with Lee and got to know each other, we had a great laugh and I can honestly say I've never been to a hotel in the UK where I've been made to feel so at home. The place was spotless, the breakfast in the morning couldn't have been better and bearing in mind the local Premier Inn quoted us nearly triple the price - I can safely say we found an absolute gem. We look forward to our next stay.

We stayed here for two midweek nights in March. The welcome was warm.The service was efficient and friendly. The room was clean, cosy and comfortable and the breakfasts excellent. Parking is free and the hotel is only 10 mins walk from Eccles tram stop with frequent services to the City. Highly recommended.

If we come back to this area then this is where we will stay again. The house is very nice inside. Very tasteful. The outside needed a little sharpening up but to be fair we did visit winter so maybe I'm being a little harsh. Anyhow, we had a nice greeting on arrival. Our room was not quite ready as we were early but we where shown where it was. Popped down to the high st for a quick lunch and returned to a lovely clean, warm and nicely done out room. Breakfast was great and you felt you could ask for anything you wanted. Great location as train station and trams are just 10mins walk. Good way to get into central Manchester. Choice of eating places 5 mins walk away. Excellent value
