A welcoming arrival with a pot of tea. A comfortable room. Excellent hospitality from Paul and Mike. No need to use the car because the bus stop into Torquay/harbour/centre is immediately outside the hotel. A convenient location for touring South Devon.

Booked into Westgate last minute for an urgent business trip to Torquay. Location is good with bus route outside, or easy walk to town / harbour on the flat. Accomodation was comfortable, en suite fine, and a desk in the room, important for answering emails etc (which so many B&Bs seem to lack these days). Nice bar area where we... More

We had a lovely weekend at the Westgate our hosts Paul & Mike provided us a first class service and accommodated all our requests. The hotel is spotlessly clean including the ensuit with some wonderful features expecially the dining room ceiling. I recommend a stay just for this. The breakfast was first class. I was so impressed with this hotel... More

Glad you enjoyed your time here. The Westgate's an elegant, late Victorian villa that really does retain its period charms. We're looking forward to seeing you again in August - Let's hope the weather is still as fabulous as it is at the moment. Thank you for taking a few minutes to write us a review. More

Always been a bit of a Premier fan but think they have out priced themselves of late so thought we would try and smaller hotel/B&B and now wonder why I liked the premier. We had a lovely weekend at the Westgate and Mike and Paul do a great job. The hotel is spotless and nicely decorated with a relaxed feel.... More

Sounds like the chain budget hotels may not be as budget as we think. With the independents you can get something unique and the breakfast, WiFi and parking is usually in the price - or 'free' if you see it that way. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your great review. More

I would totally recommend this jewel of a B and B . In a fantastic location only 10 minutes walk from the marina in Torquay with easy access for a hub of restaurants , and a gorgeous beach. Paul and Mike are fantastic hosts and made our stay one to remember . They made sure we had maps and all... More

Have stayed in Torquay hotels and guest houses this past month due to business. Due to their hospitality and room rates I'm staying here for another month...Paul even prepares me a breakfast bag to take to work as I'm up before breakfast. Fab Thanks boys and keep up the good work.

Thank you for your continued support. We know that people stay with for vey different reasons and that one size does not always fit all. We are happy to make adjustments to our normal offering where we can - such as breakfast bags where people have to leave early for flights, trains, busses or work. More

Absolutely fantastic hotel. We received a lovely warm welcome from Paul and Mike and were offered a much needed pot of tea after our long journey. We had stayed at The Westgate before and brought our parents with us this time who now love it just as much as we do. Paul and Mike looked after us so well, from... More

Westgate is comfortable, stylish, well located, quiet, and friendly. It was a pleasure to meet the proprietors, who are interesting, skilled and attentive but without fuss. I'd happily stay there again.

Wonderful to know you enjoyed your stay with us. Being just off the main areas we're not bothered by the bustle of Torquay but it's close enough to walk into and enjoy. Do come again and thank you for your review. More

Westgate was very nice , I enjoyed the stay ... Paul and Mike were very welcoming and reflected their professionality in running the Westgate. However, I have some suggestions from improvments such as: 1) Re-design the Entrance of the Hotel by cancelling the un-used Bar and change it to a Reception with larger Loppy and Guest Space. You can do... More
