What our families say on

"The same reason I chose this care home - it feels clean and fresh when you walk in and the staff are caring and friendly. They also have plenty of interactions with my Mum which helps to stimulate her."

S P rating: 4.91 out of 5

"I live abroad and I visited Mum in March on a visit to UK. I phone Mum nearly every day and it is rare not to find her in good spirits. The carers and staff are doing a top job and I am very happy my mum is in such a well-run establishment."

John W rating: 5.00 out of 5

"From the reception on arriving for the time, a warm, professional greeting. The room my sister is in is bright and cheerful. The staff are all very welcoming and appear to be happy in their workplace."

Francine C rating: 4.67 out of 5

"Mum is doing well having recovered from cellulitis and a urinary infection not long ago. The carers and staff are doing a very good job of looking after her. The nurses also keep me up to date by phone, which is very helpful. It has been a difficult time for Mum, but the work and care of the staff in the home have been first-class."

David H rating: 4.33 out of 5

"Find all the carers very good and helpful, also various nurses very good."

Barbara R rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Recently the home care staff helped my husband and myself when he was taken to hospital, just for a few hours. They were so supportive. The carers are just that caring, not only for the residents but also for their families. The nursing staff are always available to help and answer any queros that I have had. My husband seems settled, and importantly, happy. The management isn't always visible."

Ann S rating: 4.08 out of 5

"Mum has been in Ashford House for over five years, and the staff have always been lovely and supportive of my mum and myself."

J D rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My wife has been in Ashford House Care Home for over three years. All of the staff including housekeeping staff are first class. treat her with respect, care and kindness. The home is always kept in first-class condition, very clean and tidy. Excellent care home."

"My father is very happy and being looked after very well."

Steve M rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My brother and I arrived to go through our mother's care plan. We were welcomed as always by happy and lovely staff. We were offered tea/coffee and cakes as always and advised to always help ourselves. The care plan was very accurate and detailed which was excellent! We all agreed Mum has settled very well. We couldn't be happier that Mum is in great care at Ashford House. Thank you!"

Karen R rating: 5.00 out of 5

Fran M rating: 5.00 out of 5

"You have been so good to us, and to our aunt, our stay was not a long period but will remain with us forever. The staff were friendly and very kind. The last hours with our aunt were so memorable because the night staff did all they could to make it easier. We thank you so much."

Nicholas c rating: 4.58 out of 5

"My wife has been a resident in Ashford House for just over 3 years with advanced Alzheimer’s. In all the time she has been resident all of the staff, management, nurses, carers and housekeeping could not have given her better service. She is very well looked after with absolute care and consideration. Thank you."

Edmund D rating: 5.00 out of 5

"I am very happy with the care my mum receives at Ashford House. She is very happy and the carers and all staff are brilliant. There is plenty of different entertainment going on; fetes, animals visiting and trips out in the minibus. There's a small shop/shed in the garden where all toiletries, cards etc. are free for residents. Would definitely recommend this place 100%."

Sue B rating: 4.17 out of 5

"As a family, we have always been very pleased with the care that Dad is given at Ashford House. He is always kept clean and comfortable and is well cared for. He has a lovely room, which is always clean and tidy and his needs are met."

Marion O rating: 5.00 out of 5

"As a family, we are very pleased with the excellent care given at Barchester Ashford House Care Home. The staff are always kind, friendly, polite and helpful. They keep us well-informed and always make sure that Dad is clean and comfortable. The home is exceptionally clean and the staff go out of their way to entertain the residents. Their open days are fantastic!"

Marion O rating: 5.00 out of 5

"Very impressed with the total presentation of the care home and facilities. Staff are helpful and attentive. The care home efforts of Saturday 1st July were excellent, entertainment and food very impressive."

Brian S rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My parents are generally well looked after and the nursing supervision is of a high standard. It does give me peace of mind that my parents are closely monitored and any issues are acted upon. Care staff-there does appear to be a staff shortage at times and I get the impression of a high turnover of care staff."

J F rating: 4.50 out of 5

"On the whole, our experience has been mostly satisfactory. Occasionally I have not been as happy as I ought to have been, on my husband's behalf. I expect a level of care where my husband is treated with dignity and consideration and just on odd times, this hasn't been so. But the staff are always considerate and try to make his time here as happy and comfortable as possible within their time restrictions."

Ann S rating: 3.55 out of 5

"My husband was cared for in Ashford House Care Home for six months, from September 15th to March 12th. He was so well looked after, everyone was so kind. He was treated with such devotion and dignity. He came to call Ashford House home. Ashford House became a second home for our dog and me too!"

Pauline W rating: 4.58 out of 5

"My wife has now been a resident in Barchester Ashford House Care Home for two and a quarter years. Ashford Hous is first-class in every respect. The housekeeping team ensure it is always immaculate. The nursing staff know their residents' needs and responds. The care assistants know me and my wife and are all good and pleasant, as are the activities there. There is no doubt this is a result of excellent management."

Edmund D rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My mother has been a resident ar Barchester Ashford House Care Home for almost five years. During that time, the care she has enjoyed has been excellent - welfare and medical and the staff and carers have made her feel so welcome and included. The carers are so patient with her and take very good care of her even when she is being uncooperative. The home is kept clean and safe and the meals are varied and nutritious. I am very grateful for the support Ashford House Care Home give the residents and their families (especially during Covid lockdowns) and highly recommend the care home for anyone experiencing the devastating impact of dementia."

B H rating: 4.50 out of 5

"My wife has been in AshfordHouse for just over two years. I am more than satisfied with the care and attention she receives. On arrival, the caring and personal nature of all the staff is more than evident from reception through to housekeeping, carers, nurses and activity staff. The building condition is always immaculate, everybody is friendly, and knows who I am and who I've come to see. All the staff are first class and they ensure their resident's safety and comfort."

E D rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My wife was placed in Ashford House Care Home in January 2021 during Covid-19. Visiting at first was very difficult and I had little opportunity to assess the house or her care. As visiting has improved it is very clear that Ashford House, its management and all the staff are committed to providing first-rate care for all of their residents including my wife."

Edmund D rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My mother has been a resident at the home for a number of years, she entered with dementia and other medical conditions, the care she has received has been excellent, the staff are all helpful and friendly, and the home is well looked after and maintained. With an excellent entertainment programme. The food option is very good. It has given our family peace of mind she is being so well looked after."

Annette B rating: 5.00 out of 5

"All the staff are so helpful, friendly and caring and Ashford House Care Home has such a lovely atmosphere. My mum is very well cared for and looked after and I always get a warm welcome when I visit. I am always kept updated on mum's health and she is very happy here. I would highly recommend Ashford House to anyone looking for first-class care."

Rob P rating: 4.58 out of 5

"As a family we are very happy with the care and attention our mum receives. Her behaviour can be very challenging at times due to her illness and she is looked after with the dignity and respect that she so deserves and we are forever grateful, it is much appreciated and very comforting to know she's being well looked after."

Helen T rating: 4.00 out of 5

"The staff are really lovely and caring."

Bernadette L rating: 5.00 out of 5

"It's always lovely to visit Ashford House Care Home. I am always greeted so warmly by the staff. I am so impressed with the first-class care provided for the residents. The residents are always happy when I am here. Ashford house always provides a range of activities for the residents which I think is also very important, the activities coordinators are fantastic, interacting and dancing with the residents. It's always a pleasure and I always look forward to visiting Ashford House."

B S rating: 5.00 out of 5

"The care of my nan is top-notch. She is always well cared for and loved and fussed over by the wonderful staff, she is always kept nice and clean, staff are always welcoming to us and very approachable and informative. The cleanliness of the home is amazing, when you walk in it is always fresh smelling, never smells of old people's home, cleaning staff are always seen working as I imagine the cleaning never stops, amazing how they manage to keep it so clean. Hats off to the wonderful head housekeeper and her team and, as always, the head of unit nurse is amazing, we trust her 101% with Nan and, of course, another member of staff is always a breath of fresh air when she is on. Thank you all for the great care you give my nan."

Nicola C rating: 5.00 out of 5

"Ashford House Care Home has been amazing. The manager and the staff especially dad's carer have been so professional, kind and caring. I could not have asked for anything better. When the time comes I will hope to be a resident. P.s Everything is so clean! Very important."

Jasmine J rating: 5.00 out of 5

"Happy with the care but sometimes they are short staffed which can sometimes affect the quality of care."

Lisa W rating: 4.00 out of 5

"When I came to visit Dad, he was in the day room listening to the singer. Everyone, including Dad, was singing along; some were even dancing. It was so lovely to see. Some of the other people were telling of their experiences, which were very funny and entertaining."

S B rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Mum thoroughly enjoyed the Platinum Jubilee party that was held in the garden and she really enjoys the activities at the home, especially the animals."

Deborah G rating: 4.25 out of 5

"Facility bright and clean - plenty of natural light. Staff are attentive and polite. 24-hour care necessary for my father - noticeable improvement in well-being from the initial admission."

J F rating: 4.5 out of 5

"Bringing mum to Ashford House from another care home was like a breath of fresh air. The home is extremely well managed and every single member of staff is very pleasant, attentive, efficient and available as needed. All the carers are genuinely caring and the activities reputation is well deserved. Food is plentiful, varied and attractive with 3 three-course meals per day with additional sandwiches later in the evening for any residents who need food then. The home is extremely clean and well decorated and smells fresh. In the few weeks that mum has been there, her mobility has improved and I'm now confident that mum is in a place where she is being looked after to the best of their ability."

Jackie R rating: 4.83 out of 5

"My Mum has had excellent care, all staff are very caring and thoughtful, her room and home have a high standard of cleanness, the food and beverages on offer are very good. This gives our family peace of mind."

Annette B rating: 5 out of 5

"Dad has been a resident at Ashford House for 14 months. He has received first-class care all-around to meet his medical and personal needs. The facility is always clean and in good order."

A G rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Mum moved in about a week ago and is being very well looked after. The staff are friendly and helpful and bend over backwards to accommodate Mum's needs and requests. Very happy so far, allowed to visit regularly."

John W rating: 4.25 out of 5

"We had to transfer dad to Ashford House at the height of the pandemic so it was not easy. The staff ensured we were kept up to date about everything so we were happy dad had settled in well. When were allowed to see him every effort was made to ensure our visits in the garden or Pod went smoothly. Dad seemed happy and content and we were aware that some staff went the extra mile to ensure he was well looked after in a friendly and dignified way."

B D rating: 4.5 out of 5

"My mum is well looked after and the use of the outdoor space for visits and events, e.g. coffee mornings is great."

Steven Y rating: 5 out of 5

"New resident only arrived in January 2021. Since she has been in this care home, she is now very settled and very comfortable and the accommodation is faultless. Clean, tidy and homely."

E D rating: 4.92 out of 5

"I came to a coffee morning held by Ashford House and it was a lovely morning and the staff were amazing."

L R rating: 4.42 out of 5

"Mum is well presented, clean and tidy on my visits. Her room and bathroom always look clean. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Mum seems to be comfortable in her surroundings and well cared for."

Sasha F rating: 4 out of 5

"Ashford House is a fantastic place for my mum with Alzheimer's. She is so well looked after here. She is happy and comfortable. The staff are hard working and friendly."

Annie F rating: 5 out of 5

"I have been very satisfied with the care and attention dad has received since moving to Ashford House. My only feedback has been around virtual and physical access during the pandemic. I recognise the challenges for the team and that they are only carrying out instructions set by the Government / local PHE and Barchester."

Andrew G rating: 4.25 out of 5

"I am so happy with the care mum is getting at Ashford House. The staff are amazing, the rooms are lovely and there is such a great atmosphere in the home. The lounge and kitchen have just been refurbished and mum is so settled here. I would recommend Ashford House highly."

Rob P rating: 5 out of 5

"My mum has improved massively since coming to the care home she is very happy and still improving."

Stephen Y rating: 5 out of 5

"Dad has been at Ashford House for 10 years, and I'm always confident and happy with his amazing team who look after him. During the last 18 months, he has remained safe and cared for. The team are top class!"

L B rating: 4.17 out of 5

"Our family have always been extremely happy with the environment and care at Ashford House. The staff are lovely. They are always polite, friendly, helpful and caring. They keep us well informed and as well as giving dad exceptional care, they are very hospitable towards us when we visit."

M O rating: 5 out of 5

"I can't fault anything about this home. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I feel my husband has the best care for his needs."

D C rating: 5 out of 5

"Have found all the staff friendly and feel the home is run very efficiently. Nothing ever seems a problem."

Tina J rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Having met the manager and her relatively new team by Zoom on Friday 30th Oct my reaction was one of reassurance that Ashford House is in good hands! I am fortunate in having been able to (Covid secure) externally visit my partner regularly and have from a safe distance been able to 'interact' with various members of staff. This has been of such value to me; being reassured that best practice is being carried out in these challenging times, for the residents, staff and relatives. To say they all go the extra mile is truly an understatement. Words almost seem inadequate to express the sterling job you are all doing but my "thank you" is heartfelt."

Patsy H rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother has been a resident at the Ashford Care Centre for over 2 years and the care she has received has been excellent. The staff are so patient and caring with all the residents and always go out of their way to spend time listening and supporting the resident's needs. My mother's condition requires the carers to be patient and supportive and I have been so impressed by their dedication and willingness to go the extra mile to meet all of her medical and welfare needs. I have no hesitation recommending the Ashford House Care Centre to anyone who has relatives with dementia, as the care they provide is second to none. Thank you all for your support, especially during the pandemic and the challenges it has brought."

B H rating: 4.42 out of 5

"My dad has been in this home for three years with dementia. Before this home, I struggled to find him the right care. They have all been amazing, he has received the best care and I can't fault them in any way. I'm really happy with everything they do. What an amazing team. Highly recommended."

Lee H rating: 5 out of 5

"My sister and I have been very happy with the way our father has been cared for in the last three years. The staff are very nice and he seems to have a very good relationship with all of them. The home is always clean and tidy and staff are always very helpful. Dad seems quite content now and hopefully will be for much longer."

Graham rating: 4.25 out of 5

"My father took residence at Ashford House in April 2019 when his dementia became too bad for him to remain at home. I was very reluctant to have him placed into care, as I felt I was taking away his independence, but the staff at Ashford House encouraged him to join in with the activities and he was given every opportunity to mingle with the other residents (although, like at home, he generally preferred to stay in his room and watch TV!). Although he was always happy, his health deteriorated through cancer and dementia, and he passed away Christmas Eve. Throughout the bad times, the staff were always compassionate and caring and did everything possible to keep him comfortable. They were a massive support to me as I live in France and continually felt helpless. I cannot recommend the care home and staff enough - bright and cheerful building, and truly amazing staff."

Carole S rating: 4.67 out of 5

"My father has dementia and moved into Ashford House in October 2019 so this was his first Christmas away from his own home. I and my husband joined him Christmas Day, we had a lovely day, the home had a great atmosphere, and several other families did the same. The Christmas dinner was very good, we had starter tomato soup, Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, Christmas pudding to finish. Several family members have visited Dad and have been very impressed with the home, and found the staff very caring and patient. It’s great that you can visit at any time, always greeted with a smile everyone management and staff are very approachable and always willing to give help and support."

Lizz C rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Ashford House has a bright and friendly and clean environment. Management and staff always welcoming even when no appointment to visit. My husband stayed for two weeks respite care and I would have no problem in taking him there again. Thank you."

D D rating: 5 out of 5

"Still more staff needed. However, the staff employed at Ashford House are truly first class. I visit 6 days every week and daily see them go "above and beyond" what is expected of them to make my partner's life comfortable. My frequent interaction with all departments from management (excellent open door policy) nursing, carers, kitchen, housekeeping, activities and admin always has a satisfactory conclusion. I thank them all. The longer my partner is there the more I am convinced that I made the right decision in choosing Ashford House."

Patsy H rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Started visiting many years ago when an elderly man from the church became a resident. I was then asked by the activities co-ordinator to join the C of E and RC folk on Friday mornings - many opportunities to pray, sing and encourage them. A lady in our Alzheimer's group went into a care home in Staines but her husband was upset by her lack of care and I recommended Ashford House and she has been here for many years since. All staff are kind, caring and helpful and provide different activities for them - I would be very happy to recommend it again."

Sylvia F rating: 4.8 out of 5

"This is my first experience of a care home. My wife has dementia and is very well cared for at Ashford House. The home is bright and airy and the individual rooms are of good quality. Most important of all is the staff are very caring and look after the residents with a cheerful disposition even when conditions become challenging. It is a comfort to me that my wife of 56 years of marriage is happy in Ashford House."

Colin T rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Dad has now been in the home for two years. It is not an easy decision placing a loved one in a home but from the first time we entered Ashford House, there was a warm welcoming feeling. The main issue is a shortage of staff, especially the carers. Having said that I cannot fault the staff. I am always greeted with smiling faces and dad generally seems very settled. The nursing staff keep us well informed and are always happy to discuss any issues. The cleaners do an excellent job and the food is of a good standard. The activities team do their best but it is a shame that they don't have the time for one to one chatter. In short, a well-run home that would benefit from more carers."

Carol H rating: 4 out of 5

"My mum was needing a home and I was told about this care home. From the first time I stepped into the home it made me, my mum and brother very welcome, comfortable and just like home from home - it's fantastic staff and everything about it."

Anthony N rating: 4.5 out of 5

"My dad has been in Ashford House for about 8/9 months now and I can honestly say, there has been so much improvement in him and his health. He tells me he is happy and well looked after. The staff here do an amazing job and look after Dad and others very well. You can see that residents are happy in their home and are being well cared for. The level of care, cleanliness, laundry, cooking and activities is well run and could only be improved if there were more staff to make that happen. I would recommend this care home to all families who have a family member who has Dementia as the care they supply is much better than what you can do at home, as it is 24 hours and you know your family member is being looked after at the highest level."

Wendy C rating: 4.83 out of 5

"At a very difficult time for everyone and Mum not wanting to go into care support from the whole team was excellent. Any problems that did arise were handled carefully with as little trouble to Mum. As for value for money, that's an issue the government should be looking at. It's a very unfair society. Working hard all of your life and then not being supported is a major issue."

J H rating: 4.73 out of 5

"The sole problem is shortage of staff, from care assistants, kitchen staff, cleaners and maintenance. The staff there do the best job they can but, inevitable, often the quality of care is compromised! Again, I emphasise, the staff and management) do an excellent job within the constraints of their staff shortages. So well done Ashford House!"

Patsy H rating: 4.08 out of 5

"Dad had Alzheimers and had gone from living independently in February 2017 to being unable to feed or dress himself by June 2017. He had been in hosptial from Feb - June and it was traumatic to see him deteriorate. While at Barchester, he has begun to improve, to gain weight and was always calm and happy. This was due to the care and considerate attention he received. It was clear that he was always treated with respect and staff patiently engaged with him and encouraged him to eat. He was always clean and clearly well cared for."

M M rating: 5 out of 5

"Since my 97-year-old Mother-in-Law had been under the care of Barchester Ashford house since October 2017 we as a family are extremely pleased with the standard of her care. Therefore, despite her ways and mannerisms and difficulties, we have observed, on our visits, how the carers have gone the extra mile to see her needs and to care for her in a meaningful way. We could not be happier."

R D rating: 4.83 out of 5

"On first visiting the home we felt not only welcome but impressed with the knowledge of all the staff and how friendly they all were, plus the big thing the home did not smell of urine or bleach. The room dad stayed in was furnished lovely and always warm and clean. The lady who does the events was extremely good with dad and helpful, always a smile on her face. As one special carer always so caring and supportive to both dad and the rest of the family. The food was always hot and looked well presented and tasted lovely even though dad had to leave."

Noelle G rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My Mother is receiving excellent care, all staff and facilities are of a high standard. Housekeeping is also excellent along with the meals provided. My Mother has health issues but with the care she receives she is happy and her health is maintained."

Annette B rating: 5 out of 5

"Our mother was moved to Ashford House from another home. Ashford House was superior on every level - care, environment, facilities and administration. There was a friendly, open and honest way to how our mother was welcomed and settled in that was contrasted starkly with the self-protective caution of the other home. Excellent care!"

Richard W rating: 4.67 out of 5

"Ashford House is a well-run care home, all staff are very caring, they provide all residents with great care - treating them with respect and keeping their dignity. The home keeps us well informed if there are any changes with my husband's health."

S D rating: 4.17 out of 5

"Lovely home, caring staff. My family and I have been made to feel welcome and most importantly Mum loves it."

S C rating: 4.92 out of 5

"It is a wonderful care home, the staff make the residents feel happy and visitors like they are visiting residents at home. I could not ask for a better place for my mum to be. Thank you, they are the best staff."

Anthony N rating: 4.92 out of 5

"A really lovely home, good carers who show a great amount of dedication very helpful and always willing to listen to any worries/concern's we may have. Food is lovely and a varied menu. A new activities lady has joined the team so I would love to see more activities being offered. Also to use the garden more in the summer months. Overall, really happy with this lovely home."

L W rating: 4.08 out of 5

"Fantastic care."

Simon Q rating: 5 out of 5

"The staff are mostly very helpful, however sometimes if maybe we have more staff it would be more beneficial to the service user. I could not complain about overall care being given to my husband. The food is great, the home is clean, not smelling. The domestics are doing a good job. The management is supportive to me. The home manager is outstanding, she is very good."

Erika H rating: 4.17 out of 5

"Excellent care. Excellent staff. My mother is looked after extremely well."

L W rating: 5 out of 5

"Always greeted by friendly, helpful staff. Dad usually seems happy. He is well cared for and is generally clean and tidy. Sometimes communication needs to be more prompt. Dad gets the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities which he appears to enjoy. Overall we are very happy with Ashford House."

Marion O rating: 4.42 out of 5

"One lady went beyond normal care by blow drying and applying make-up to my wife, in doing do she made her really presentable."

M D rating: 3.92 out of 5

""Totally satisfied with the care my Mum receives. All staff very friendly and excellent care is given to all the residents. My Mum is treated with respect and dignity at all times. My Mum is very happy, looks very well and has now put on weight The home is always kept so nice and clean, a big thank you to the Nursing and Staff of Ashford House Care Centre."

Annette B rating: 5 out of 5

"We have noticed a big change in my nanny since she has been at this home, she is happier, more content, well looked after and fed, she has always got food on her table and as a grazer this is fantastic, she always smells clean along with the room, she is even managing to put weight on. Staff and the nurses are fantastic and patient with her when it is time for her medication."

Nicola B rating: 5 out of 5

"Totally satisfied with the care my father got. All staff are so friendly and excellent care is given to the residents. My father was treated with respect and dignity at all times. The home was always kept so nice and clean, whenever I walked in."

G M rating: 5 out of 5

"I visited Ashford House on their most recent open day. As I came through the doors of the first floor I was greeted by laughter music and happiness. All the residents were gathered together in the main lounge all having a wonderful time. What really struck me was in amongst the dancing and laughing residents was the activities staff having a good time too! From an outsider's point of view, I feel they couldn't create the compassion and love they demonstrated for the residents in that moment and it gave me an enormous sense of relief to know people that genuinely care were here supporting someone I loved, with love. I was welcomed immediately to join in the party by a wonderful smiley lady called who followed on to ask if there was anything she could do to help me on my visit and directed me to my loved one's room. As a first impression of the home, it couldn't have been better! I very much look forward to coming to the next party at Ashford House."

Gillian M rating: 5 out of 5

"Staff are very caring and helpful. Sometimes can be short staffed and all the staff work very hard. I feel that entertainment should be more often in the afternoon as it is currently only on Wednesday afternoon, therefore that leaves six days without entertainment. They all need different activities as it can be a very long day for the staff and residents."

Lisa W rating: 4.09 out of 5

"I have found the nursing staff and care staff very good, attentive and very kind and gentle. The administration are excellent and very helpful in helping me manage my mother's medical needs."

David B rating: 4.42 out of 5

"The whole standard of care, cleanliness and dignity was excellent. The staff were always available to help and advise us throughout my fathers stay. I was always kept informed about any health issues that arose day or night. My father was always given respect and empathy throughout his time there. All the staff including cleaners and laundry staff were always extremely cheerful and polite. I congratulate all the staff at Ashford House and I would never hesitate in recommending this wonderful home. It made my whole family's lives so much easier, I was so confident about his whole stay."
