Nice old building in pretty setting. Pub and restaurant are nice -good food. Staff are pleasant. Room was adequate but quite stuff in warm weather with no fan or a/c. Traffic noise was a little disturbing.

Stayed mid week with my infant daughter. Staff were very accommodating when it came to supplying a cot, organising a babysitter, and sterilising my baby bottle. We even had an adjoining room to my parents which was handy. It wasn't busy when we were there, but I got the impression that the staff were not very good at multi-tasking. When... More

The hotel was nice and the room was comfortable. However, they were holding a wedding and the music and noise kept us up very late. The wifi also cut in and out constantly and when we needed assistance we called down to the front desk and went down to the lobby and no one could be found. The hotel is... More

Stayed at the Westwood for a wedding in May. We stayed at this hotel a few years ago. Not as good as our last visit. Alot of guests were having problems with the swipe card for room entry. It was a nuisance having to keep going to reception to have them checked. The bedrooms would need updating, on entry to... More

Great place to stay! There was an issue with the internet but this was eventually resolved! Both restaurants are recommended, great service and fantastic choice! Look forward to returning again soon! Afternoon tea was enjoyable and the cocktails in the evening were delicious!

My partner and I stayed in the hotel for a night. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

First of all, we enjoyed staying at this cute hotel, and embraced it's graceful charm. The staff was wonderful. That being said, there were a couple of issues - one being the wifi. It didn't work in room 205 most of the time the 2 days we were here. I could however get wifi in the area at the top... More
