Unfortunately my father only spent a couple of weeks at Ancaster House after being admitted to hospital in his 90s and then being transferred to Ancaster. The care and love he received there was tremendous. The staff worked together and their was a very good atmosphere in the home with lots of interesting things going on, but also place for a quiet time with my father. They went to great lengths to make sure he was comfortable and well cared for and kept good communication with us and other care providers. This all happened during the Christmas holidays when it must have been more difficult than normal. We are very grateful to all the staff for the compassion shown to my father and ourselves. My father had previously visited on a week's respite and had really enjoyed his time there and especially the food. He got on well with the staff and other residents and particularly liked the garden grounds.

My mum moved in recently, but has been in many homes for respite. Ancaster goes beyond any other nursing homes. It is like a 5 star hotel and more. All staff are amazing and truly care and also love their work. I wish more was said about excellent care homes, as normally you only hear the worst. Many many thanks to all.

This home is a former 'Blesma' home it is ideally located, within easy access to the lovely town of Cmeff. The view from the home is outstanding overlooking the countryside. The staff are extremely helpful and cannot do enough for the residents or indeed the visitors. There are frequent outings and if I was to finish my time in a care home I would choose this one, what more can I say.

The staff at Ancaster House are very caring and make it a fun place to be. Whilst being aware and supportive of the health issues of the residents they are also personable, friendly and interested. This makes the painful process of relinquishing 24 hour care of your loved one as acceptable as possible.

My Mother went to live in Ancaster House on 30th April 1014. It came to us highly recommended. Since she went there, the care has been exemplary wonderful. Mum has significant nursing needs and nothing is too much trouble for the nurses,carers and management team. I cannot recommend Ancaster House and all the team there highly enough.

When we had to put my husband into residential care we visited several. The minute we entered Ancaster House we immediately felt at home, the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming, the residents we met during the initial inspection were happy and content. The domestic and care staff cannot do enough for you. Hazel and all her staff treat each resident as an individual and not just a room number. The food is great and each residents dietary needs are catered for. I have had several meals with my husband and the food is excellent. Entertainment provided is most enjoyable. All visitors are welcome any time.

As a paramedic and fellow health care professional, I cannot praise Ancaster House and every level of staff enough from the gardener/handyman to cleaners, cooks and carers to the brilliant nurses and management team. Ancaster House provides the residents with everything they need, their professionalism shines through. My only mark down in the tick boxes was not to do with Ancaster House but die to my mother in law being unable to join in activities. A wonderful nursing home.

My mother was recently accepted as a resident at Ancaster House. Unfortunately although she suffered with dementia, she unfortunately developed a leg ulcer - secondary to diabeties, this was inoperable and the last week of mother life was spent with palliative care provided by the nurses and staff at Ancaster House. Their care of mother was exemplary, professional, caring and dignified, as a family we rate Ancaster House as second to none and would definitely recommend it to anyone needing nursing care.

This residential home was bought by a new owner at the end of 2012. Since then, much refurbishment has been occurring with both fitments and decor being done to a high, modern and homely (where feasible) standard. My parents wishes and as much of their own furniture, pictures, ornaments and personal belongings have been accommodated as possible. The management and staff have been kind and considerate to my parents and supportive towards myself and other family members. We greatly appreciate the peace of mind they have given.
