Just what we like to hear! Really nice to know you enjoyed your stay with us and especially the breakfast. We try to use the best quality ingredients we can including thick-cut premium back bacon and hand-made sausages made at the butchers within walking distance . The free range eggs you loved so much come from a farm in Somerset.... More

We recently stayed at this guest house and on our arrival we were greeted by the owners. They were very welcoming and were at hand to answer any questions and they gave us good advice on places to visits etc. The hotel is located about 10 mins walk to the Torquay station and about the same distance to the sea...

A lovely house, well presented and clean room and very friendly and helpful hosts. Great location and lots of advice and maps given for the best places to visit. Walking distance to the sea and not far from other seaside towns.

We were very puzzled when you left early as you did not say there were issues at any time. But, we do understand now that we could never have met your expectations if you thought we were a 4 star hotel when you booked. It's a shame you did not tell us of your mistake when you checked in as... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay but your rating of us would suggest that the size of the en-suite shower room was a very big issue for you. All but one of our bedrooms have en-suite showers and the shower rooms do vary in size depending how they were able to be built in this old building. We... More

Paul and Michael make sure you know you are welcome by going through local information and maps and giving advice about places to visit. Very near local rail station for swimming trips to nearby Paignton. Watch out that they don't insist on large breakfast portions if you are trying not to put on weight. Very tasty food!

We chose the Westgate for a couple of nights last month, because of its quiet and reasonably central location, but mainly because of the number of available parking spaces on the property - considerably better than the neighbouring accommodation. The welcome is first class - a pot of tea in the drawing room together with a quick but thorough briefing... More

Nice to know you enjoyed your stay here despite the Wifi in your room on the top floor. Our car park does seem to be a big selling point alongside the great bus and train service that is so close. Please do come again and thank you for your review. More

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.
