ascot house hotel is situated on tor church road which is an ideal location only minutes’ walk to the riviera conference centre, torquay harbour, sea front and town centre. It is conveniently situated both for the local bus and railway station and is ideally located to access all main arterial roads, reaching cities like plymouth and the cathedral city of exeter with its international airport nearby.


successfully owner operated without the need for staff, this quality accommodation generates an impressive turn over and subsequent net profit. With a high occupancy rate and high repeat custom during the 9/10 months trading period, the business has been awarded “travellers’ choice” for 2019 and no 1 in tripadvisor hotels torquay, which has seen our client’s profits increase yearly since beginning many years ago. A state-of-the-art website, which also generates many direct bookings, has reduced commission rates greatly. Many years ago, a decision was taken to transform all previous eleven bedrooms into luxury suites, which has proved highly successful. The repeat bookings, room rate and resulting profit, is comparable to a business twice its size but with much less work! Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
