        • Family with children

          The first room we were put in had bedbugs, which when squashed were full of blood. We were placed into a second room which was fine. A little worrying to say the least!

          Beds were comfortable

          staff was extremely rude, smiled to everything no matter whether I complained or asked for surrounding map location (no assistance to this at all, instead staff didn't know anything about the area). Had to use shower head to fill up water kettle (where the lid was broken and it took me quite a while to put it back on) due to the basin being too shallow - no sink in the room. Saucers and spoons were dirty and sticky, no hand towels provided and when I asked the receptionist about this, he, again smiled as this was something funny to ask. Toasters are also not provided and when you need one, you have to pick it up from the reception yourself, nobody will bring anything to the room. Upon our arrival at our room, I realised that the windows are closed and cannot be opened, venetian blinds between two glasses could not be opened or shut (well, one did not respond to the dial), therefore the room was very dark, but this is probably on purpose so you cannot see the thick dust between cupboard and non-working fridge. Again, I went to the reception and asked how I could open the windows since the room needed some fresh air whereas the receptionist stated "if you want fresh air, you can leave entry door open during night" - as if anyone would do something like that! When we left and returned the room keys to the receptionist (this time another family member was at the reception), I told the man that he can pick up the toaster and TV remote control (which they hand over to the guest on arrival) as I would not do their job. Further I told him how unhappy I was and never had to deal with such dirty room and rude staff, but he replied (with this proviking smile on his face, just like the other receptionist) "thank you for the compliment". I warned him that his behaviour is certainly not good for his business, especially as customers leave their feedback on a recommended website, just as I would do - "thank you, thank you very much" was the only response...

        • Older travelers

          It was conveniently close to our family. The curtains made the room dark for sleep. Our room was cleaned daily and towels changed - it would be good to have an Eco policy of only changing towels when the guest indicates i.e. when towels at on the shower floor please change.

          There was a lot of background noise from the parking area from the air con and open bathroom window. The right hand corner of our room on the window wall had a lot of cobwebs, it could do with hoovering. There was no remote for the tv.

          Very clean

          No easy way to fill kettle due to it not being able to fit under the basin tap. No plates, bowls, or cutlery for breakfast in room.

          Had to pay up front before seeing the room and then found that the walls were covered with mould/stain, (bird?) poop on the walls, carpet filthy, curtains filthy and horrible damp smell, with no ventilation other than through the door. Only redeeming feature was clean linen, though towels were in tatters and there were no hand-towels or flannels. Service came with a snarl.

          We use the Ascot Motor Inn for flow-over accommodation for our family, and for this purpose the location is excellent.

          Can't fill the electric jug from the tap - have to use multiple glasses of water.
