Reviewed 30 June 2017

Booked this Hotel because it was advertised as Pet friendly. Arrived with a friend and one dog. They refused to let us stay despite the booking having been accepted and the room prepaid. My friend was physically ejected with the dog, after much discussion they agreed to let me contact the booking company who were trying to find us an alternative so put me on hold. The staff then got very hostile, conversed in a foreign tongue while make it obvious it was about me and while standing within 2 feet of me. They made it plain if I didn't leave PDQ things would get really nasty.
They were unconcerned that two elderly ladies would be without accommodation in a strange place and totally unhelpful about finding an alternative.
We eventually did find an alternative as although fully booked themselves the staff at a Holiday Inn helped us find somewhere. DO NOT BOOK THE ELMHURST

I was on my own looking for last minute deal after invite to Ascot. Very cheap deal and near direct station to racecourse. Hotel was good and basic but what I expected for price. Great parking and nice pub for meal 3 Tuns. Room ok and clean enough. Staff friendly and small bar open till midnight
Good value for money and it did have wifi.

Clean bed and comfy. Didnt see any guests. Breakfast was dissapointing, only 3 things on offer in combinations, no offer of cereal, hurried out at 9, even though id arrived on time, couldnt finish my tea! Im not fussy but this was below even my standards!

2nd visit to this hotel. Once again, a lovely and friendly welcome from this family run hotel. I found the facilities clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was lovely too. We requested extra pillows for our room and these were provided in just a few minutes. This hotel would not suit the Uber critical, but for the average person, this price in this location it's spot on. We would stay here again.
