Shifnal, United Kingdom
Reviewed 26 May 2015

The rooms are comfortable and well appointed with drink-making facilities. The balcony, for smoking, was welcome and gave interesting views of the square and main street. Excellent breakfasts. Easy communications, e.g trams outside and station a few yards away.

Close to the station, plenty of shops and restaurants near the hotel, in walking distance from the lake. Quiet, clean and "retro"! The staff was friendly, breakfast was simple but good, room service was excellent. Strong plus: the balcony we had in our room, which gave us the chance to enjoy the nice summer weather

I never write reviews and I never complain. But this one was too much. You would not suspect it if a hotel like this one, but I experienced certainly the most impertinent service ever in my life. Friends accompanying me were as flabbergasted as I was. The night porter (on a matter of credit cards) was simply impertinent. Things like...

Good hotel for business purposes as it offers free wifi with excellent connection, it is very close to the tram, banhof enge and Paradeplatz. Breakfast was quite good and included in the price. Although the hotel seems to have been renovated in some of its features recently, the decoration of the lobby and the hallways seem quite old. I think...

We booked the New Year's Eve package and stay at hotel Ascot. Our room was totally standard with a small bathroom (toilets were leaking and shower head broken)… We were waiting for something better with that category of price. The access to the VIP area for fireworks was really good with free food and beverage. We would have appreciate a...

Hotel Ascot is a nice establishment. Our room was very comfortable for typical small European hotel rooms. It was well appointed with everything we needed for a 1 night stay on a layover. The location was very convenient : this hotel is across from the train station to the airport. There is a Starbucks adjacent, an Asian restaurant and a...

We stayed here in December 2014 worth my family including 2 small children. Amazing location (right opposite Enge train station). Good sized rooms. Very quiet. Good breakfast. Very close to Cory and lake zurich. Great experience. We had interconnecting rooms for us and our two children. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Pre Christmas trip with a friend. Great location, just across from train station from which we went to Lucerne and Mount Titlis, and a lovely walk to Zurich center. Nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast. One downside was no control over heating, and not able to open window due to outside noise. Would stay again but ask for...

What a beautiful hotel. Right from the moment you walk into the foyer, you are greater by top quality service, through to the very comfortable rooms.
