Thanks for posting! The phone number is a dead giveaway, as is the use of a travel agent to get a work permit (that is not how one gets a work permit).

I am glad you were not scammed. Your actions were entirely correct. Never rply to adverts anywhere on internet but visit the website of the hotel concerned.
@ashburn-hotel.co.uk
is the correct domain and suffix.
is just gmail and meaningless. Sometimes scammer will send you a link to a fake website that is supposed to look like the real one. Please consult the UK Border Agency website to see if you can actually work in the UK. If you are not from the EU then you have absolutely no chance at all.
Any phone number starting +44 702.+44 703, +44 70xx etc. is a redirect to Africa. It should be +44 2xx or +44 1XX.
