My job is to write articles about places I visit and where I stay so I firstly looked up this hotel before visiting and saw the reviews were all good so I booked in thinking we were going to stay at a small hotel in Torquay. I booked a room on booking.com and although it was a later booking I... More

This person couldn't even remember who she booked with! She arrived 20 minutes after making an online booking. I explained that I had been ill, otherwise the room would have been ready, but that if they would give me an hour I would get it ready for them. She said that was not convenient, and that she had booked and... More

Stayed for a 4 day holiday break in August 2014. B and B is situated about 10/15 minute walk to shops, restaurants, and the Harbour. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The room (Four Poster) was immaculate, clean, and serviced daily to an excellent standard. A good variety of breakfasts were available and freshly cooked. Wi-Fi was available and a... More

We stayed here in June 2011 and its the best B&B we've ever stayed in! Myself, my partner and my 1 year old were really pleased we booked with Maureen and Michael, they honestly can't do enough for you, nothing is too much trouble, we stayed in the family room at the front on the first floor, which wasn't a...

My wife and I stayed at The Westbrook in Torquay for 3 nights (from the 31st July 2014) and this place is a top class 5 star B&B with excellent accommodation; great breakfast, with choices to suit everyone, and a convenient location. We parked our car and used the local buses to visit other towns in the area, the bus... More

When you book through Late Rooms they take your card details, which are normally passed to us by fax so that we can hold the room for you. As we no longer have a fax the only way we can... More

We stayed for two nights on the way to Cornwall. I picked the Westbrook because of its good reviews. I was right to. It was very clean, we slept well, the breakfast was very good and the owners were great hosts. As always you get what you pay for but I suspect you'd be hard pushed to find better in... More

My friend and I stayed here as a last minute booking as part of a cricket tour not knowing what to expect having stayed in some very questionable Bed and Breakfasts in Torquay over the past 2 years. However, from the moment we checked in the owners could not be more helpful. We were instantly asked what our breakfast order... More

We are so pleased to hear that you and your mother enjoyed your stay. For some years we only had this room as a twin, which is on the half landing, but we now have one on the ground floor as well, so if Mum doesn't feel up to the stairs another time you do now have a choice. We... More

Thank you for giving us a fantastic review, and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We do our best to make everyone welcome, and with two family rooms and four doubles it seems to work quite well - sometimes the grandparents get brought along as well. More

Thank you for your kind comments - we believe in keeping our mini bar prices low so that people can afford to use it - if we charge too much guests will bring their own. We try to ensure our guests can visit as many attractions as possible by providing discount vouchers as we appreciate that with so many places... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Maureen and Michael are resident owners of the The Westbrook, which is situated on a quiet street adjacent to the busy Belgrave Road in Torquay. A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at this family guest house, giving that little bit extra for families, with toyboxes, games, books, dvd's etc. For those of you who are not able to get away for several days at a time we also take bookings for 1-night stays, except in July and August. This could be particularly useful for business people or contractors who may only be in the area for 1 night. We are prepared to do a special 'early' breakfast during the winter months, or room only. We are ideally situated with plenty of entertainment, restaurants, pubs and local shops all within easy walking distance. We are only five minutes walk from the Riviera Centre, Torre Abbey, Princess Theatre, seafront and town centre. All rooms are en suite and are well equipped with hospitality trays, radio alarm clocks, hair dryer, mini safes, fridges with minibars, iron/ironing board, Freeview TV and information folders. Our dining room provides separate tables with a choice of breakfasts, to include full English and continental. Home cooked dinners using local produce and suppliers, where possible, are available daily, except during July and August. We have a residential license, so we are able to serve drinks with dinner or in your room. Look for our special 'out of season' breaks, offering great value for money. We also do themed weekends, to include Valentines, Mothering Sunday, Easter, and Turkey & Tinsel. We do not take stag, hen, or single sex groups. ... more   less
