Stayed for two nights with friends staff very friendly when around. Breakfast was nice but dinning room somewhat small. Rooms clean and comfortable if a little dated. Shower a bit slow but all in all good value for money would stay again without hesitation.

This was a late booking due to family illness. I had not been to Westoe Village but it is a lovely leafy location tucked away off the main road. We had a large room and a lovely bathroom. The bed was large and comfy. We had an impromtu dinner with my sister in law and had three nice meals. Breakfast...

We had a one night stay at the hotel and found it to be comfortable but a bit dated. The place would really benefit from a bit of a revamp. Parking is quite difficult if youre new to the area but more manageable if you speak to the staff about directions. We cant fault the staff, they were all friendly...

We booked this hotel last minute and stayed in the Suite. Its a beautiful room and would recommend it. The breakfast was also good. The car park is behind the hotel and is not an easy place to find so get directions from hotel staff.

Found the place having found our way around the one way system!!!, nice big room for me and wife son have a rather small room but OK, our shower head hold was broken and had been for some time drains run slow so I think they need looking at and to be honest little bit of TLC on the rooms...

We stayed here for several nights in June 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had the 'crash pad' single rooms, quite modern with more space than the online photos suggest, but the best feature for us was the breakfast/evening restaurant; the staff were more than obliging when it came to bizarre requests (When you get over 60 you have...

We stayed for just one night in room 21, on the top floor. It was a spacious room but very dark as there was only one dormer window and two walls are painted black. Only one comfortable chair was provided which was surprising as there was plenty of room to include two. The bathroom is integral to the room and...

Good greeting on arrival pleasant quirky hotel with lots of character. Receptionist was very informative and we were happy with the room and amenities for the price we paid you couldn't possibly grumble. Breakfast (included) in the price was excellent and plentiful. Would I stay here again MOST definitely
