4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for one Sunday night in November. We came in off the street with no booking. The man who booked us in was very friendly and helpful as was the lady we met at breakfast the next day. The room was clean and comfortable. We shared a bathroom but I don't think there was anybody in the room... More

Such friendly staff and service. Stayed in Napoleon room with ensuite, really good bed and bathroom, well appointed. Breakfast freshly cooked and excellent sausages, free newspapers a big plus! Right in centre of town and near to station, excellent.

We stayed for two nights in late October 2014 in the "Keats" room, at the rear of the hotel on the first floor. On the PLUS side - the hotel location is excellent, just a short walk (down the hill!) to all the city centre attractions. The room was a good size, plenty of floor space to spread out suitcases...

Thank you for your recent review. Your comments were noted and are helpful. I had to move you to Keats as the room you had booked had been badly damaged by an external leak and was not habitable. I note your comments about the dark decor but even if re-painting I don't know if I'll choose a lighter colour. Many... More

Just stayed at the Westgate Saturday night just gone, so jotting down my thoughts while fresh. Hotel location was superb, no onsite parking, but parking very close by, and all places of interest comfortably within walking distance. Booking was lovely, I emailed them and had a quick reply an there was no hassle with credit cards etc, just give them... More

I'm so glad you had a good stay with you. You're right we do need to freshen up some of the rooms and we are now in the process of doing this. Sorry about the dog in his cage whilst I'm cooking but if he wasn't close by he'd howl and disturb people still sleeping. I hope we get to... More

Pauline Stayed in this so called hotel for two nights. Dreadful is all I can describe it as. Rooms very very basic. Lightening in rooms dreadful. Shower over bath and water up to your ankles before you were finished as it did not flow away properly. Large dog going around were you were eating. Narrow stairs to the bedrooms. Carpet... More

Friendly family run hotel occupying three floors above the inn of the same name, located on a busy roundabout, with passing traffic and revellers into the early hours! Our room was on the third floor, reached up narrow flights of stairs. The room & en-suite were clean & all we needed for our brief stay. Time constraints restricted us to... More

We stayed for two nights at the Westgate while we were on vacation. The location was excellent, within an easy walking distance of the train station and major city sites. There also was a lovely view of the main street. Breakfast was made to order and delicious. As with most lodging in the UK, expect lots of stairs (no elevator)... More

Thank you for your review. I take note of the lack of fans in the rooms but that's something we've since rectified. The weather is now mercifully a little cooler. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Many thanks Helen More

This is a great value, comfortable hotel to stay at. The owners are warm and friendly. The breakfast menu is varied but I advise you have the full English with black pudding. Locally sourced ingredients cooked to perfection.

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes we do cook a good breakfast and you're right the quality local ingredients make it very special. The Black Pudding is made by our butcher and wins awards!! I'm on a mission to get people to at least try it and so far I've had a few conversions. Helen More

What a fabulous place to stay! We booked one night as we were visiting the "Hat Fair". From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
